Advertisements For Myself.  March 2019

Bruce Louis Dodson has moved from Seattle, Washington, to  Borlänge, Sweden where he now lives with his wife a cat, and two dogs. He is photographer, sculptor, and writer of fiction and poetry. He has traveled extensively and much of his writing comes from travels and incidents experienced in San Francisco, Brazil, India, Berlin, Nepal, Sweden and the Netherlands.

His novel, Lost In Seattle is available at Amazon as an e-book. If you have ever been downsized, out of work, over fifty, over educated and/or unemployed, you might be interested. The characters are real. Only the names are changed to protect the guilty. There are lawyers, winos, artists and a sexy red-haired barista mixed in with Hispanics, Asians, whites, one bank robber, a parrot, and a serial killer.  Lost In Seattle will take you to a floating world of common labor, love and lust amidst a background of Buddhism, sex and and desperation.

Have you ever worked an assembly line? Divorced? Felt you were losing touch with your children? Your country? Do you know anyone who has Alzheimer’s.


His poetry, prose, & photographs have appeared in Barely South Review, Pearl Literary Magazine, Blue Collar Review, Pulsar Poetry (UK), Foliate Oak, Chantarelle’s Notebook, Page & Spine, Writers Abroad-Foreign & Far Away, Sleeping Cat Books-Trip of a Lifetime Anthology, Northern Liberties Review, Pirene’s Fountain, Contemporary Literature Review-India, Kind of a Hurricane Press-Tic Toc Anthology, 3rd Wednesday, Tic Toc and Storm Cycle Anthologies, Vine Leaves, Cordite Poetry Review, Buffalo Almanac, mgversion2>datura, and Maintenant 11,Poetry Pacific, So It Goes, The Coil, Pure Slush, Dash Literary Journal, Off The Coast, Popshot Quarterly, and Glassworks.

    I love your stories about your two cats. I have two of them too but they don’t live an exciting life as yours do. I can’t wait to read more of your stories.

    Hi Bruce. Nice to meet you. I’ve been travelling all over your blog. I’ve read 2 or 3 of the Bucks and Amber entries – wish I had time to start from the beginning and read all of them – very entertaining.
    We’ll be in Sweden (Linkoping) for the second half of August, our fifth visit – Don’s son and family live there.
    Thanks for visiting our blog, and for the like on the post about Burma – glad you enjoyed it.

    Thanks! The shirt? All I know is it was bought in Bali by a friend. It’s in our little storage locker in Vancouver at the moment.
    The gravatar photo – a cheap Indian shirt from Tamil Nadu.

    • bldodson says:

      I have 12 of those shirts . . . all I ever wear really.
      I was in Tamil Nadu, around 1985. Not easy travel, but good. Travel always is isn’t it. Even when it’s bad.
      Did you hop over to Sri Lanka? I fell in love with Kandy.

  6. Alison says:

    12 of the Tamil shirts? Or Bali shirts?
    Yeah, travel is like that – not always easy, but good.
    No, didn’t get to Sri Lanka. Maybe one day . . . .
