Summation of Sorts

If this were a phone call, you would very well be startled by my voice; and may have forgotten it. Bare with me, this could be a doozie. The more time goes by in which I don’t blog, the more negligent I feel on what I want to comment on. And the opportunity keeps passing me by, as they do. Time does not stop for much deliberation frankly. I used to be spontaneous. I used to shoot from the hip. It did get me in trouble a couple of times, foot in mouth style, but physically I have never been in harms way. Is there more at stake as an adult? -the being level-headed, feeling buttoned-up, and having consequences to … Read More

Leaves of Grass

Leaves of grass: Individual pieces yet also a part of the bigger picture. Individual politics, yet a part of the same consequence. Individual perspectives, yet sharing the same space and time. I’ve been reflecting on how the quantity of writing I do is not fairly balanced with how much I share, as far as the music goes. I have come to terms with the financial impracticalities of producing all the songs. So, over the last month I’ve been separating the prose into two categories: poems or music. Expressing the poetry is a free outlet, whether in front of a crowd or on my music site. I have added a link on my music site to Poems and will be posting … Read More

Memories and Memoribilia

When I was growing up, I was the least affluent of my friends. I had many affluent moments and a handful of exposures to some great wealth, but generally speaking… There were 3 significant homes I had with my mother. The most impactful -relevant to this post- was the house I lived in during my late junior high to high school years. I’ve written of it before. Worth a read. A short story. Needless to say, i’ve come to reflect on it as a tiny museum shop, without the fantasy that term might actually suggest. There were walls covered in pictures and shelves with stuff, tedious furniture items mainly used to display other things on, multiple shadow boxes filled with … Read More

I wanted to acknowledge how appreciative I am for the birthday wishes and messages I received yesterday, from near, close and far off. I felt wrapped in a hug all day. I love various penmanship, too. Last week was a tough week for me personally, mainly because i was putting up resistance to changes I needed to make; yes, it’s often in our head. I’ve got to stick to my guns and chase my passions. Nothing is perfect the first time and I will re-do it till it’s right. I’m not patient with myself, either. One thing I wanted to share was how I am officially off coffee (12 days), at least till an upcoming trip to Portland, Oregon in … Read More

I’m having a moment. I need to get something off my chest. Yes, I may be taking something personally, but this is my blog and I can do that. And seeing as though I haven’t posted in almost a month, I might as well with enthusiasm. Just a little background: I put out an EP (6 songs) vs an LP (full album) almost a year ago. The same month I did so, I thought to myself “I will not be a starving artist.” and essentially got a full-time (at the time) job, almost the same week. I am not making excuses when i say that I didn’t have the time to hustle the music. I am being honest when I … Read More
