"...hyperbolic stories, juxtaposing the ridiculous with the sublime..." -Francine Russo, The Village Voice

Welcome to timothybraun.com your doorway to professional writings and amateur photography pertaining to, but not exclusively about, nights of experimental puppet shows, mango margaritas, Coney Island, kite festivals, aviation themed bars, wombats, opera, gun shows, literary analysis, commentary on sports, cultural, politics, food, religion, ontological psychology of thingies, metaphysical momentums, silliness, puppies, and splendiferous serendipity. Dissecting the creative writing on this website with a Talmudic meticulousness may result in erroneous conclusions and mockery. Please note that I teach at two universities and the writings on this website speaks for neither.
