Cataclysmic

I’m suffering this morning. It’s my own damn fault… I should have paid better attention. Idiot!!! I’ve been doing my best to provide for those around me, and working on preparatory projects, and I often forget all about myself, and what I need to get through my day. And it’s always the trivial things IContinue reading “Cataclysmic”

Gratitude

First off, I wanted to take a moment to shout out to all the new subscribers and followers of my author Facebook page, and this blog site. Little by little we continue to grow. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m a little “different” and if you’re into that kind of thing, IContinue reading “Gratitude”

Split Personality

My wife laughs at me sometimes. I can’t say I blame her for giggling at my expense. She’ll come down to my office space (still in construction) and there I am, pacing back and forth, chewing the side of my thumbnail, eyes frozen wide open, muttering, whispering, and having a conversation with a blank, whiteContinue reading “Split Personality”

Dream State

“Everywhere I go I see people passing by. They keep staring back at me like some freak in paradise.” –Papa Roach–   Sometimes I forget where I am. Especially in the middle of the night. The transition from one home, to the current home happened so fast, and was a blur from beginning to end,Continue reading “Dream State”

Hell Week

“Voices, a thousand, thousand voices. Whispering, the time has passed for choices. Golden days are passing over, yeah.” –Ozzy Osborne Before Hell Week started, someone asked me, “why do you want to buy a house? It’s so much easier to rent. You have no idea what you’re in for.” There was only one answer. Permanence.Continue reading “Hell Week”

The Three Rings

 “Every day a new deception. Pick your scene and take direction. And all in all I search to connect, but I don’t wear a mask, and I have no regrets.”  Shinedown Often, as of late, I’m asked unexpected questions, and I find myself brought into conversations with which I was not prepared. It’s my ownContinue reading “The Three Rings”

Rollercoaster

What a whirlwind of a ride. So much has happened over a short amount of time, and that’s the reason for my absence. In a lot of ways, it feels as though a year has gone by in the last three weeks. Like so many other posts before this one, I’ve often hinted to theContinue reading “Rollercoaster”

Disconnect

“Nothing ’bout me is ordinary. My friends all say I’m going crazy. I don’t hear a word that they say.”—Shinedown   I go through periods of time where I have to separate myself fully from social media and mainstream everything. Sometimes upwards of a week or longer, before I’ll open it back up and takeContinue reading “Disconnect”

No-Man’s Land

“Joe Schmo sat in the snow. He didn’t know which way to go. All he knew, was his ass was cold.”–JSM   While standing beside my snoring, heavily medicated girlfriend sleeping soundly on the couch, drooling into her pillow, I believed at the time the remainder of Nancy’s life would be filled with hardship. IContinue reading “No-Man’s Land”

The Mortal’s Enemy

“Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.” –Chinese Proverb “The world is a vampire, sent to drain.” –Smashing Pumpkins   At this phase of my journey, and it happens in phases, I’ve come to understand some things. Bear in mind, this is all coming from subjective personal perspective. My truth. ToContinue reading “The Mortal’s Enemy”
