when your mouth is

January 15, 2020 Posted by the writer

Super shut.

Observations inside silence are always the loudest to me.

One of my favourite people who hails from the South Island of New Zealand spent a few days in my beach hut recently.

We guzzled gin drinks and played hair colour games with another favourite who dwells down Byron way.

We dipped carrot sticks in garlic dips and swapped secrets and silliness. The colours of my life are violet and gold. They remain that way.

Seven years back two of my best friends killed themselves within nine months of each other. That reality floated past these pages somewhere, right around the time when I shut down.

Considering I keep five friends in my pocket, losing close to 50% of them was something I never tried to accept.

Not until these past few weeks.

When y’all wonder where I went. Inside a broken heart is probably the best excuse I can float you.

I never took a minute to think about it. I’ve been crying a bit recently. I’m finally facing what the fuck my problem is.

Per the recommendation of one of my favourite kiwis, I’m finally starting to dance it off. That’s what the boys would want.

Blast this. You’re welcome.

So I’m sitting beside an open window on a blustery New York City eve. I started a new short story. Still working on it, but it starts like this:

My therapist says I have separation issues.

Miles and I used to run around the playground. Not too near kids. Loud ones. You know the sort. Kids on soccer teams in Subarus.

Miles has three fingers on his left hand which I don’t tend to notice and I certainly never mention.

I write a lot about mental issues. I don’t say “illness”, because I’m not so sure how I feel about that term. (more…)

silent solitude. manifestation. meditation.

Since learning of Nathan’s untimely passing I feel like I’ve been in a trance. I haven’t done much creative writing the past few days (gasp). I’ve done a lot of breathing. I’ve stared at the sky a lot. (more…)

R.I.P Nathan Wills

Three weeks ago today I blogged about a conversation I was having with an Artist I love and respect uniquely to any other soul I have encountered.

Ten minutes ago I popped on Twitter to say hello. That’s how I found out that Nathan Wills took his own life on July 27th.

Nathan and I found each other in the early days of FollowMeToNYC when I was soaring the land of social media following conversations of musicians, writers, artists and other lovers connecting through these means. Instantly our conversations went beyond such talents – we talked about infinite love. We talked about one Soul. (more…)

Namaste international tribe of cult and other lovers

I have been having so much fun writing in a zillion styles over the past days. Aliases everywhere.
