I began this stream of consciousness on another tangent entirely the other day. I thought I was focused on one thing when I'm still working on the thing I'm always working on these days, me. Which is quite interesting in and of itself. To lay way yourself to a query and do all your due… Continue reading Project Me
I’ve tried writing for a week or so now. Not as if I’m blocked or anything, I just can’t feel I have anything to say at the moment. The irony of that is I have a lot of tabs open in my head. Partial searches, pieces of thoughts, incremental spaces, and lots of feelings. Nothing… Continue reading Tender Heart
The days get longer from here on out. Or so you say. The days get warmer from this day forward. Or so you say. The dark gives over to light. Or so you say. My heart turns over beats for you. Or so you say.
The holidays are a stressful time of year. If you’re young or old or somewhere in between. We don’t identify it so much as stress, instead we have manufactured anticipation and excitement. That wish fulfillment is guaranteed one day a year. Above all other days this is the day you’ll get that thing. You’ll be… Continue reading Happy Christmas (Musings)
A tableau envisioned time and again erases a fading picture. Time and again I return to look at myself like Dorian Gray. Time and again I’m screaming at that reflection in the mirror, my canvas; who is she, what is she doing, why is she? It’s an existential question. It’s a self-centered point of view.… Continue reading Paint Me
There are lots of different monikers we grow up with. Some of them are bestowed upon us by parents, teachers, friends, even enemies. They can be nicknames or pet names; cutesy kind of sounding prefixes that get trotted out on special occasions or intimate ones. We can be given silly names by children, sexy names… Continue reading I’m a Geek, You’re a Geek
CW: talk and blabbering about anxiety. Do you ever wonder where you’d be or who you’d be if you took the path less travelled? Do you ever wonder who you are because you didn’t take the bait? Do you ever wonder what you are to others when they seem so far away? Do ever stop… Continue reading Fuss & Suess
When I typed in the word, ‘desire’ into the ol’ Google, the majority of search results came back a. hard core porn, b. Henry Miller. I mean. Ok, Google but that’s a pretty narrow focus on a feeling that broadly encroaches into and onto all parts of our lives. And honestly, Henry Miller is… Continue reading The Desire Principle
The internet, ehhh. This is a classic Simpsons line, for those old enough to remember the best of the best. We can extol on that later. But let’s dig in on the reason the thing we all use this thing, for everything and maybe what that existentially all means. Nothing. It really means nothing… Continue reading The Internet, eh.
Aging! Isn’t it great, says no one when they get to be the age they are called Ma’am or Instagram starts sending them targeted ads for retirement villas. As if I can afford a villa. As if I might be able to afford retiring. Geez oh. As a general rule who needs to hear about… Continue reading Oh No, Am I Old?
