So I have no illusions that you will actually read this… although you might if I post to my blog since that is your “go to” for news on what I am thinking about and doing with my life but in all honesty, it doesn’t matter one way or the other. The point of me…

At just over 8000 steps…

I close my eyes only to keep myself going and suddenly I’m on a beach that I don’t recognize but it’s perfect. Only about 68 degrees Fahrenheit because I don’t know any better. The ocean is to the left of me and I can feel the east coming. The sun is shining on me and…

Trophy Buck

I’m seriously considering getting a hot glue gun to fill the TSA opening on that second lock but I’m afraid that if I do this it may affect the mechanism of the lock and perhaps prevent the combination that I set from working. This frustrates me. The fact that I have to go to this…

Methylphenobarbital

If I had a loved one with whom I could be honest then I would say I understand how fucked up all of this must seem. I’ve been no angel the past 18 years, granted. The first 24 either. I’ve done some desperate, and dumb and all out unbelievable shit and I cannot imagine how…

His middle name

What she wants is different from what I need She’s just a cartoon And I’m just infatuated… She wants a long table in a dark room, candles lit at the center of the table, a fire place roaring in the background, soft classical music dancing on the wind, a window open as darkness seeps in…
