Anniversary! I’m still alive!

Anniversary! Today is the second anniversary of my bicycle accident, my broken bones, and my bleeding brain. Last year, we made a big deal of it: we were home from the hospital and from therapy, I was working, and my brain was sidling up to normal. The girls played hooky…

    Floating With Jesus

    I was home for a month after my accident, and after three months in the hospital. This dream was as real as if I were to talk to you in person, each of us gabbing away, laughing. I talk about in the story, but I’ve often wondered what would have…

      Ms. Haft Was Wrong: Words Have Meaning

        About Dennis Mitton

        I am a coffeeist, a scientist, a father, and a husband. I am, sadly, no longer a son. I write obsessively about almost anything. My first name spelled backward is ‘sinned’. I drive a thirty-year-old Saab. It’s a glorious venture.

        I see now that I’m in pursuit of meaning. In fiction, whether I’m writing or reading, I am fascinated with Cohen’s line about the crack where the light gets in.

        In non-fiction, I look for the same thing, but in evolution, brain science, and living the good life. I’ve had my own dance with TBI and it’s opened many doors of understanding for me.

        I label myself a Christian agnostic which my loving wife views as the apex of stupidity. I love her for her steely spine and uncompromising fealty to truth and loyalty, but I write Christian things from this perspective.
