Gary Conkling Life Notes

Mostly whimsical reflections on life

About Gary Conkling

Gary-ConklingGary Conkling started writing stories as a child, which he published on his own hand-cranked printing press. Little did he know digital technology would make it possible to repeat the task as an adult by publishing his own blog. He is a journalist by trade who has worked in the trenches of public affairs at the federal, state, regional and local levels. But he also is observer of life occurring around him. This blog is devoted to those reflections, coupled with some of his best, most personal professional blogs. Please follow the word crumbs of my life.

    I just read about the death of your son. how tragic, but wonderful the way you remembered him and shared this with others. I lost a daughter at child birth, years ago. she came to visit me the other day when I was playing my guitar. I had never experienced her like this before. what a gift.

    I used to work with Norm Eder and came to know of you through that association.

    all the best to you.

    If I wanted to use the “signing on screen” image from your post “” in a book, can I get permission from you? Or is that image from elsewhere? Thanks,

      I plucked it off the Internet in what appeared to be a royalty-free image. You may want to find and buy the image for your book.

    Hello Gary, this article brought back some very very interesting memories. It is interesting in that we, as a nation are still dealing with the same issues today that were being discussed almost 50 years ago. Its good to know you are still here and fighting the good fight.
