First Draft Done!

That piece I've been working on this week has passed its first draft. It's done. 3,300+ words, good article length. During the review and rewrite process it will probably grow a little bit, but I'm glad that first hurdle is jumped. Now it's off to sit for a few days,...

Dark Things On Our Bent Horizon

There are dark things on our bent horizon... I built this site to be pretty clear push to the name I actually use when I write things for myself, that I want to have published in that name. Back in that day, I was just going to dedicate it strictly to that. Now? Fuck...

Deep Thought

So, a guy walks into a bar and says to the bartender,

“The Universe wants a drink.”

The bartender looks at the man for a moment and asks,

“Okay. What does the Universe want?”

The man leans forward,

“You already know.”

Johis-rad

Sounds of the mountain came to him, even as he knew no passing of sun or stars or moon overhead. The passing of time caused an ache in him, even as he regarded, in a disembodied way, the aging of his bones and his flesh; the toll on his mind. He valued only isolation and the vantage point it gave him. It was an unchanging view of a world that was as it had been before his birth, and would be after that world reabsorbed him after death.

Run for Cover

A very tricky part of this "self-publishing" thing is finding covers for the work. I anticipated this, planned for it, but it's still a bit difficult. "Lure" is ready to go, but I need to pull a picture for the cover. Since I take a lot of photos, and many fit what I...

Fresh…and Moldy

I'm going to follow the lead of a friend and revive this thing, with a general purpose of some generalized stress relief. No, I won't go into a load of detail. The points aren't too important. What is important is the pain-making fact that those points are many; like...

Failing Happiness

Failing Happiness

Failing Happiness is the place of wilting, not dying, wilting. I can't generalize for everyone suffering from Mental Illness, I won't speak for them; if anything, this shit is so random my own descriptions can't really match up to anyone else. I do know...

Pessimistic Idealism

Pessimistic Idealism

My dreams are woven from dark fabric; bound in smoke and fire – embellished with tears. Yet, to see such decoration our eyes need light. It is pointless to weave intricate patterns that cannot be seen. There can never be destruction without creation.

Pessimistic pondering must be balanced by Idealism, or the entire dream collapses into depthless nightmare.

So, yes. I am a man with Pessimistic Idealism driving my thoughts. Since nothing is mutually inclusive, these two clashing concepts work in balance to create some future vision. I think they birth Hope…and a fragile Faith.

Isolation

White Supremacists in the Full-Time RV community have forced me to deactivate my FaceBook account. Old friends are not really speaking to me right now. We have one car, so while Julie’s at work I’m land-bound.
