    2020-11-05 Nothing New to Say Thursday

    Day 7 without a good nights sleep. It’s sort of like having a newborn without having to breastfeed. You go a little cray-cray after a while. I find myself being irritated at small things. I find myself giving up on stuff too easily. I’m walking a lot to try and compensate. I try to take […]

    2020-10-30 All Hallows Eve Eve

    This morning I woke up at 4:45 AM from a dream about my recent ex-employer. The business had become a smashing success and they had just opened their brand new building which was a really neat New-tech high-rise situated among a neighborhood of 1 story buildings. A Sim city anomaly. There were appearances from two […]

    2020-08-23 The Saturday AM Update

    I woke up at about 6:30AM and for the first time in a while, I’m looking forward to the day. Something about a long string of days that involve stuff you’re not looking forward to that really messes with a persons groove. I’ve obviously been in a funk. I’ve obviously been a broken record, stuck […]

    2020-05-16 Every Little Thing Gonna Be Alright

    Bob Marley got it right. Three Little Birds is just one of those iconic songs from my past that returns to my mind again again in new situations and brings with it the history that my brain has attached to it. And despite all the hurt I’ve ever experienced, and negative nostalgia attached with some […]

    2020-04-28 Hidden Tracks, Nostalgia, and Serious Feels

    I’m listening to a new playlist I created last week. It’s pretty much the bomb and full of songs I’ve forgotten I loved so much and some new ones I didn’t even know I owned. Each new selection leads down another road of thought, which is pretty incredible, but it makes me feel sort of […]

    2020-04-24 A New Setlist to Help Me Cope with Un-Planning

    Yesterday I had this poem knocking on my door and I was like “just a second, I gotta check my messages”. I got distracted by the day. The same poem knocked again later in the day but when I opened the door I found only echo and silence. And that’s when I know I’m still […]

    2019-12-30 MFA Res Day 2 – On Music and Magic and Math

    The song “Straighter Pilot” by Snow Patrol was in my head when I woke up. It’s not one of their more popular songs. It’s kinda quirky and kinda nerdy and truly atypical compared to the rest of their body of work. It’s a good reminder of what you can do with the freedom that comes […]

    2019-10-12 Great Day’s and Girls Only Getaways

    I ended my post a few days ago with “Tomorrow’s Gonna Be Great.” And indeed it was and how did I know that? How? On Wednesday evening when I was walking the treadmill and thinking and writing I was sort of in a sour mood as I had been running around all day and did […]
