well. thing is.

I walked out. I lasted three hours. During the three hours that I attempted, four different people told me how they just quit and my ‘boss’ advised that it’s a real ‘us against them mentality’ when it comes to dealing with other areas in the organization. (more…)

doin things different in these parts

Since I’ve come back to Australia I’ve been posting in the mornings like when I was in the States. This is going to switch, posts will be coming at night until further notice… which is actually daytime in the US… so maybe things aren’t changing as much as I thought? (more…)

what’s written down. what’s thrown away.

As I attempt to get through the anthology, I’m realizing most of what’s included is from over the last three years. So where’s the rest?

One of the ‘Writers’ has been posting work over the past few weeks with exact phrases from some of my pieces recently featured here. I think my reaction to the scenario says a lot about who I am as an Artist so I’d like to share it with all of you, my loyal cult. (more…)

Something from 2007… as featured in the forthcoming anthology…

THE SILENCE OF LOVE

I have not spoken for nearly three years now – not since that day. (more…)
