Hey there!

This stream of consciousness is intended to be an unfiltered account of my journey to fight my way to a healthier, happier life. One day at a time, one step at a time, one organically-grown-emotionally-raw blog post at a time…

    2022-10-28 One Day By Day

    On October 21st, 2010.. twelve years ago I wrote my first post on my first blog. No surprise, it was a poem. It was titled Day By Day and it was about the act of starting each day by reflecting on the day before, and then “jumping in” again from there.  It was a giant […]

    2022-10-27 The One About Blogging and Drama Over THIS Blog

    So meta, I know. And also long…. I’m often slow to process things that happen in my life. I’m typically very methodical and intentional with my words and I care how what I say affects people and what the perception is about who I am. I’ve tried to say “efff that” to worrying about what […]

    2022-10-17 Much Ado in Mid October

    It’s been a while again. I can’t say much has changed but let’s recap anyhow for the one or two random strangers who might be reading for the first time… My writing is in the dumpster.  My self-worth hangs daily, by a thin, thin thread. I’m not excited about much and the act of doing […]

    2022-09-28 Destined to Fail… 🩸

    I’m not worried about my health because I’m in great shape for my age. I’ll probably be saying that for the next 30 years. As I age, all the parts of my body that fail will likely be very appropriate for whatever age I might be when that happens. It’s been true for my eyes […]

    2022-09-18 The Most Underutilized Magic 8 Ball Answer… 🎱

    “Concentrate and ask again” There’s always a lot going on, you know, and life never seems to slow down. By now I’ve realized that this notion I always have that things are going to slow down any minute is a trick of the mind. And that I’m my own worst enemy, ensuring that it doesn’t. […]

    2022-09-15 Sometimes When It Rains, It Pours

    Sometimes it’s all dried up, and there’s nothing to say. And sometimes, even though my creative writing is non-existent, the other words are just begging to come out.  I guess you could call this post a continuation of the one I finished yesterday. When I was done writing, I believed I had said all I […]

  • 2022-09-14 The Daily Pep and Thoughts on Quitting

    2022-09-14 The Daily Pep and Thoughts on Quitting

    The Daily What?  The Daily Pep. One of three podcasts I’ve recently taken to listening to on a regular basis. This holy trinity of podcasts includes “Chasing Life” which comes out once a week and is 10-60 minutes on a random topic like dreaming, playing in adulthood as you did as a child, and social […]

  • 2022-09-12 A Play-By-Play of My Own Personal Inferno

    2022-09-12 A Play-By-Play of My Own Personal Inferno

    The days come and go. Things happen that feel *noteworthy* but I’m not taking notes. In my head, a dozen times, I’ve thought about posting those pictures I took at UNL last week. I got invited by my darling daughter to read poems in the sound booth for an assignment. I’d never been in a […]
