seeking below the surface

November 14, 2010 Posted by the writer

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. (more…)

the flipside. something lighter.

Yesterday’s piece ‘A picture of me’ received some wonderful feedback

I always adore hearing cult members and various tribal affiliates say things like, ‘Yes! I’ve been there, I get that…’ Because that’s my reasoning for writing. It’s how I connect with this mysterious land of Earth. Human emotion is a most fascinating topic to me, the ability to manipulate it with words is a personal obsession.

I wrote something for today that is opposite of yesterday’s piece to stand by my statement of, ‘No really, I don’t only write dark pieces…’ (more…)

dark-ety dark. dark dark dark.

I was on the telephone with my sister yesterday who came across my features on Sleep.Snort.Fuck for the first time. We had a conversation about writing because she’s working on her second book. Her feedback on my work sounded something like, ‘Dude you write some dark shit.’

I grinned and tee-heed but then started contemplating this. She’s right, I do write some dark shit. I, in fact, write shit so dark that I think people are shocked sometimes when they meet me in person floating around and blowing kisses.

Something I adore about words is this exact freedom. You can be anyone you want, you can tell a story from anyone’s view. You can play with your voice and completely transform an environment with structures of letters.

For example, let’s switch from chatty blog talk to some free form poetry. Watch how fast I become someone else, with nothing but words: (more…)

memoir

Over the past two days two of my favorite people have raised writing a memoir with me. Truth be told, my life is insane. And no, I don’t mean ‘I have a colorful past.’

My life is literally insane in live-time.

Do you ever feel like you only reveal bits and pieces? I think everyone is like this to a degree. When you’re in a situation like me with 382 bits and pieces strung together and posted in the global proximity of Internet land, I suppose this reality becomes a bit more apparent. (more…)

where and how. the stories come.

Since hitting my year of posting people occasionally ask, ‘So, what’s your “blog” about?’ And then I say something like, ‘Well… it has some writing, words, and then there’s New York City, oh and sometimes Australia.’

People do blogs about electronics, or Hollywood whores, world news, etc. Not me. When I started this off I didn’t even realize I was diving into this ambiguous information sharing method coined with the term ‘blog’.

Last night I had a few 3am phone calls of me sobbing into the telephone to various cult members about how, ‘I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for a year. I’m a failure. What am I doing?’

I’m kind of hard on myself… (more…)
