Astronomical show of a lifetime!

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

I hope for clear skies the final day of May. There may or may not be the most spectacular celestial event witnessed by our generation. Have you seen a meteor storm? I’m not talking about the Germinids (Dec 14th), Leonids, (Nov 17th) or the Perseids (August 12th). These are all predictable showers. I have witnessed clear nights with 60 or …

What is art?

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

Is art only painting on duck cloth? Is art creating poetry that rhymes? How about creating a sonnet or a ditty? What about taking photos of nature or domestic life? Can a carpenter create art; can a gardner? I think art is in the creator. If an artist builds something few others would, isn’t he an artist? Isn’t nature the …

Why do I do what I do?

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

I spend my spare time, and some say I have too much of it, doing things other people never found an interest in. I like to go into the woods albeit most times on a side-by-side with my wife, or once in a while by myself on foot, but either way, I’m looking for treasures. The local fauna has always …

Why do you want to write? There’s no money in it!

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

Most questions posed to me: I can think out a reasonable answer, or within minutes, someone in the lunch room looks it up on google and we agree on the answer…because we found it on google. This one question baffles me only because I don’t have a clear answer, and I don’t think anyone who writes fiction does. Why would …

60 years old… Hum?

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

Tomorrow I reach a milestone in my personal life. Sixty orbits around our star. Like everyone one on this day in their life, I reflect. What have I done? What have I learned? What have I taught? What do I know at this stage of my life; what am I sure of? The first step of adulthood is to raise …

Have an adventure every day!

Sitting here enjoying the fruits of nature. Breaded chicken of the woods deep fried. How can anything taste bad when deep fried? I am a hunter gatherer and I apologize to nobody. Today my wife and I went fishing for about three hours. We released everything we caught due to lack of inches. Familiar? Not a failed day, but a …

An old dog can learn new tricks

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

As a boy growing up, most of my fishing was done from land and usually with worms or slugs I found under stones along the river bank.. The streams I fished could be jumped across in places. The Brook trout I brought back home for a winter’s treat were small. Milk cartons filled with water and brookies held a special …

Illusions of Grandeur

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

Some of you know and some of you don’t, I am working on another novel. 15,000 words into “The Better Bev Effect” and building. Why do I want to write another? Because I want to change the world. Because I am the only one who sees the stories I see in my dreaming mind. I’m the guy who ask: what …

Soon…

Tomorrow is Feb 18th 2021. Why is that an eventful day? We: NASA/ the human species are placing yet another probe on the planet Mars. This one has a helicopter. The odds of success are about 60%. We are getting better at landing on dots in the Heavens. Math is our friend, you can’t argue logic. Some will say it …

The Zone

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

The time is 3:00 AM, I am at my keyboard thinking. I listen to classic rock with earbuds. This is when my awake mind connects with my dreaming mind and what I think is poetry comes out of my fingers. This is when I write best. Hey, it’s my dream. While watching some rock opera videos to get my self …
