Some Arbitrary Pics from My Poetic Journey

I thought since I've had a seriously varied writing career encompassing five whole decades, it might be fun to post a few random photos (zany, crazy, wacky?) with no real agenda in mind. Just whatever I find, and perhaps a brief blurb on a couple to explain...

The Times, They Are a Changing

The times, they are a changing. The physical transformations that FIVE (5) DECADES of writing have forced upon Scott C. Holstad. 1988 - 2021. A slideshow of the path my career and journey as a writer has taken me over a FIVE DECADE span (which is really hard to believe). All of these photos representing …

We Just Bought A New House and We’re Moving!

We have been house hunting all year in another primary region of the country for several different reasons, and I initially thought it would and should turn out to be quick and easy, but it's been the most hellish house buying/moving experience of my life! Because of things like my poor health and my wife's …

Leaving LinkedIn. Hopefully Some New & Diverse Blog Posts Here…

I am coming to the conclusion I may finally terminate my LinkedIn account after 15 years there. There are a number of reasons and it both pains and saddens me, but I see no viable alternative. I've worked hard over 15 years to build the largest very high-quality network on the platform, and by most …

An Asheville Vacation – Photos

Hi. We rarely get to take vacations and especially with my health disintegrating over the past year and a half especially, let alone the past four plus years, it's just very hard for me to travel. I mean physically painful. But we had a chance to take a few days and go somewhere and we …

Some Blog Site Changes

While I'm having a hard time finding the strength, energy, time, etc., to write many blogs, to write any articles, book reviews or much of anything, as well as rare new difficulties doing things I've always done and taken for granted my whole life, such as simply reading, playing computer games, watching shows or films, …
