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?
I can't stop making these and polluting social media with them. I don't care if I'm the only one who thinks it's funny! For reasons that I'm not concerned enough about to reflect deeply upon, I started out doing this with a clear Lynchian theme... ...and, after burning out on that material, I was compulsed … Continue reading Started From Blue Velvet, Now We Here… (Gallery)
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
It occurs to me -- over and over again, because I never learn, and usually at the least opportune moments, but I digress -- that the primary reason I procrastinate and stall and make excuses and put off trying or fucking doing anything (besides being rooted, as all things are, in Fear) is that I … Continue reading A musing on disquiet and simple acts of psychic upheaval
I think I may have reduced the entirety of my existential crises down to a single, yet powerful, philosophical dilemma: How to reconcile my innate nihilism with my cosmic Buddhism. Is it, indeed, possible to believe in nothing and everything? We shall see... 🙂 (Perhaps this is a repurposing of sorts.) Also, it turns out … Continue reading A ridiculously short post on an infinitely prodigious topic.
“My schedule for today lists a six-hour self-accusatory depression.” ― Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? It looks as though our last day in Tucson (for the time being) will be March 31st. As of April 1st, we will be hitting the road to live out that gypsy wanderlust dream life! Also, … Continue reading Minutiae and Whimsy of a Day
Every time I find myself, I get complacent. And then, of course, parts of me get restless. They wander off again and get lost. 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. The ancient beginnings of this … Continue reading The Spring Festival
You know how people claim to associate with a particular faith or spiritual system but behave in a manner that would suggest otherwise? I hate that. I am that. I am a Buddhist. Even saying that is difficult for the anti-conformist, free-spirited wanderer in me, but in as much as anything is "true" I must … Continue reading A Musing on Bad Buddhism
Sometimes, there's a day -- a day that could start off like any other day, calm and unassuming and the like... But, sometimes, there's a day -- hell, it might not even be a day. Could be a lonely desert night, Coyote howling for the Moon, the dry Southern breeze stirring up some distant echo … Continue reading With Apologies To… (A Musing on a Day)
