Who am I?  Nobody, really- alive in the midwest, watching the world spin around me.  I’ve lived in Europe (when the dollar was high), I speak multiple languages and I saw more before I was 21 than most people see in a lifetime.

This blog is a culmination of the thought process that kept me alive for 45 years.  Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s angry, but it’s always real-just another Voice of the Little Guy trying to make sense of what’s going on.

Maybe there’s someone else out there with a voice like mine.  Consider this my message in a bottle.  I hope it reaches your beach…….

    Shannon Porter,

    Hello my name is Chris. You replied to a craigslist post I ran looking for a creative writer for a small controversial magazine. I tried to email you but I know sometimes craigslist emails will go straight to the spam folder so here I am tracking you down. I absolutely love your writing style and think you are exactly what I have been looking for. I would love to discuss the details so if you could please give me a call at 573-718-8226. My email is finalstand.cg@gmail.com and we have a small sample of our material on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/finalstandmagazine if you would like to check it out. I have about 12 writers right now that do great work for me but you seem to have the exact attitude I have been hoping to find. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Chris Griffin
