IF YOU’VE READ POSTS on this site, then you know they can be personal, and in some cases funny. That’s what cmduncanwriter is about; stories humbly acknowledging the weirdness of life and seeking to convey meaning. It’s no secret; we live in a challenging snippet of history where the lines between what’s “good” and “bad” are either blurred or are in danger of erasure by powerful influencers. My site has no chance to alter trajectories, but hopefully it provides a venue allowing readers to peak between the lines, and discover perspectives they might not have considered before.

Nothing fancy; just stories.
