About Me





Short Version: This is my personal blog.

Long Version: My name is Dart. About 1,000 guys in America may have that as their first or middle name. It can be short for “Darton”, an English word that means quiet, peaceful meadow. Or deer park. Or a forest of deer or something else depending upon your alcohol intake. Obviously it is from England.  Or Scandinavia.

The word “Scape” means an extensive view, scenery, a picture or representation according to dictionary.com. Examples include Landscape, Waterscape, Cityscape, Mindscape, Moonscape, Seascape. Thus, Dartscape is my view of life, the universe and beyond.  For those of you who are older than the hills, you might remember the very first graphic internet browser, called Netscape.  This was in the mid-1990s.  It was about that time that I purchased the domain name dartscape.com.  Decades later, the browser known as Netscape is long gone, but I continue onward!

Doing what?

Blogging about the art of writing and my personal efforts to have more of my fiction published.  Also, some posts about photography and technology and maybe even science. Or whatever else comes into my head.

During the Pandemic Crisis of 2020 I started posting jokes. I have a somewhat English sense of humor so not everything I find stupid hilarious will make you laugh.

I don’t do controversial subjects and never politics. Although trigger warning, my jokes may be considered “off color”.

If you read something here that you like, please leave a comment.  I don’t need your email address and you won’t be automatically subscribed to a thousand email lists. Just leave the comment.  It helps me continue on! You don’t want to see me go the way of Netscape, do you?
