“The mind should be a sanctuary of reason, unfettered, free for flights of fancy, a cheerin section for the ideas of others, love or what not, uh, and a pilot of your soul. It should not be invaded, occupied, or put under martial law. There shouldn’t be tanks rollin through your Limbic system or barricades in your cerebral cortex. Your sanity should be yours to lose; it shouldn’t be carjacked by brainwashin, mind control, or electronic torture: an evil shade of things to come, a gray miasma where sociopathic technology rules the heart, where slavery or murder can be a minor choice on a keyboard, the end of all good things -- freedom, justice, and liberty for all -- though, of course, the good things won’t end for the right people.”

A carbuncle is a roiled mass of skin or a beautiful gem. The incredible gem is pictured in the logo below and at the bottom of the short story section...
Kevin O'Kendley is the owner of Carbuncle Moon, and the author of all original material -- cartoons, blogs, shorts, essays, articles -- on the website (there has been a very limited editorial input in some of my work). All quoted sources are noted. I am responsible for all posts. The only blogs not time-dated are those advertising nonprofits. All nonprofits are vetted, investigated, though after the summer of 2018 my vetting has lapsed: (6/1/21).

Photography provided by a visual artist, my daughter, Caitlin O'Kendley: a young woman with a beautiful soul. (Caitlin is in college now, a media-journalism student)
