Welcome to PenHead.org, an oasis of uninformed analysis in a desert of educated guesswork. What is a penhead? Do you fancy yourself a writer? Enjoy a good read? Then you may already be a penhead yourself!

We are your source for original stories, the occasional interview with our favorite authors, book and play reviews, recommendations (of current and forgotten finds), and more.

Our Goal: World domination through the written word via the vast network of the internet. Until then, we'll be found risking what's left of our reputations here, at PenHead.org.

Keep in mind the internet's similar to the Jersey Turnpike - it's all about hits and traffic - so visit often, share us repeatedly and we'll do our best to keep things interesting. Who knows . . . you might even be entertained.


Government records by their very nature are dry, uninteresting compilations of facts. Often produced with the intent of providing a historical record, they're chief aim is to reconcile fiction with reality. Reports often are produced to sum up an event; a clarification of the whats, whys and whos surrounding the event. A report produced on the tails of an investigation has this purpose in mind with the additional heaviness of legality.

With all the players of a Shakespearean production - kings, princes, courtesans, spies, agents, royal subjects and even a few jesters - it had the elements too - conspiracy, corruption, collusion and . . . more >

Recently, while sifting through items in the family home, preparing for its sale, I came across a government document from 1963. It was the Congressional Record: Proceedings and Debates of the 88th Congress, First Session. While it may be a strange publication to encounter in the average home, there was no surprise around its discovery. Nay; in its place was excitement and curiosity. My mother, the former matriarch of our extensive family, was politically involved. Some may argue she was politically obsessed. This particular item, while being mundane as most government records are, held a special curiosity for me. The official document of record for the U.S. Congress of December 5, 1963, it gives an accounting of government business in the wake of JFK's assassination. Due to her interest in politics and having herself a profound connection to Texas, there was no mystery as to why Mom had hung onto it.

Of course, the first thing I did was look up everything Congress did related to the President's death. With no index to go by, this I was sure would prove an impossible task, but actually it was fairly simple. Nearly . . . more >

Meditation: Key to Spiritual Awakening holds many things. It holds the promise of centering us, which holds an array of benefits from reducing anxiety to filtering out the noise of the day that's not beneficial to us.
