Well, shit...I suppose my "plan" to get back to writing and posting here more regularly hasn't really been seen through, so far. But the thought struck me, like a Nike sneaker to the skull at a hardcore show, as to what the future of this page and my contributions therein should be. And it goes … Continue reading A “New” Direction?
Or. Do. They? O.o 1.))) Every experience in this life is a lesson. The most difficult moments hide the lessons we most resist learning. 2.))) The things that make us angry show us when we need to practice letting go. Typing that sentence is a million times easier than figuring out how to actually do … Continue reading Ten Stupid Things That Sound Intelligent and Profound (Or Do They?)
- There's nothing like the smell of wet cow ass in the morning. It smells like...well, like wet cow ass. - Must be a leak over my bunk when it rains heavy, because I slept in a wet spot that I am 98% sure I didn't make. Okay....82% sure. - Is it oxymoronic to despise … Continue reading Musings on a Wednesday: Randomness and Observations

Goddamnit if my happiest, most serene moments of any given day don't always come when the "rest" of the world is asleep. It's in these moments that I can't imagine why I would ever try to deny that fact, that I absolutely prefer to exist in solitary and apart from everyone else. It's also in … Continue reading An Intrepid, Wandering Hermit

This time I want to do a better job of putting me all together and moving forward. #TimeToChange "When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back … Continue reading A musing on restlessness and complacency, with Apes of Gloom
Kung Hei Fat Choy! Yesterday, February 19th on the Western Gregorian calendar, marked the official New Year on the Chinese lunisolar calendar. In Chinese communities worldwide, the next fifteen days will be filled with celebration, ritual, feasts and family, all centered around the concept of rebirth, regeneration, and renewed prosperity.
