17 – Where’s The Essay?

I spent a good chunk of this day toiling away at a new piece. It's finished now, and published. Just not here this time.

A few days back I received an invite to contribute content to Medium, "a better place to read and write about things that matter."  I'd expressed interest in contributing to their site, they checked out The House Newf, I paid them off under the table, and now I've just published my first essay on their platform.

The essay is titled "A Night at the Driving Range with Bob Marley and Friends" and this is me providing a convenient link to it right here.

I hope you enjoy it and I'm grateful for any comments. And we'll see you back here for The House Newf #18 very soon.


  1. Nice inaugural essay, Bob!! As I've stated before, the flow with which you write is quite welcoming. Thank you for sharing :)

    1. Thanks Jason! I really enjoyed writing it and using the Medium platform. Very clean and user friendly. Take it easy!


What's a House Newf?

My photo

The House Newf is from a rugged and beautiful island on the eastern edge of Canada called Newfoundland. He was first identified by a potter with a naturalist's flair, and he does in fact live in a house under the watchful eye of a cat that seems bewildered by the universe at large. That house is in Halifax, Nova Scotia and that's where the House Newf writes fiction and essays on things that add value to his life that may add some value to yours. You can contact him at bobharding80@gmail.com, follow him on Twitter @theHouseNewf, on Instagram @thehousenewf, and like him on Facebook. The House Newf is a unique specimen. Every home should have one.
