seeking below the surface

I like things that reflect how insignificant humans really are. Needless to say, the Grand Canyon had me squealing with glee.

It was like time stopped while I was there. I wandered with a pair of beautiful people along a seemingly endless drop that stretched in every direction as far as eyes can see. I felt utterly inconsequential and completely blissful.

Later in the day I ate seaweed salad and talked about words more, my motivation of spilling them daily in inky release… the ones I think are most wonderful and why. Continue reading

love light drifting in a beautiful, musical world

Considering that a vast collection of my pieces fall into the ‘dark’ category, people are often surprised when they meet me in person. I like writing dark and living light.

A very good friend of mine actually emailed me the other day after reading some of my new work to make sure I was ok. Sometimes I don’t even realize how hard my words can hit… I think that’s kind of hot.

The irony is that I’m actually a magical green fairy floating around, love spreading. Sure we all wear a few hats in our daily roles – but that’s my main one.

city. deadly nomination. disappearing.

Last night I rugged up and hit town with CJ. We discussed the forthcoming Carrier movie that is still in post-production, a final product should be available for viewing over the coming weeks!

One day when I’m a world-renowned word nerd and CJ is an international directing phenomenon, I’ll flip back through photos of these times and say something like, “You know, it really was simpler back then…” Continue reading

50 000 nothing. 50 percent feed. Row.

Supposedly a website is kind of important once it gets 50 000 visits a day. I learned that recently watching Wall Street 2.

A few days away from my 400th consecutive post we’ve gathered a few hundred cult members to stop by for a daily word dance. However the illest thing is that half of you have subscribed to the RSS feed which means without a shadow of a doubt we’re liaising on a daily basis.

I think that is so very cool. Continue reading

i grew up here

With travels overseas approaching I am spending much time where I grew up. I grew up running around in the woods with neighborhood kids and sisters. Today I trekked along the same trails we did as kids. I passed the rocks we gave names to (since we spent so much time together), I swung on vines, I used trees as parallel bars to back flip on.

I wrote some poetry. Continue reading
