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

…let it shine, let it shine. Made it to the end of the week. I had insomnia every.single.night. this past week! I do not recommend it; it kinda makes you hate things, and people, and light. I woke this morning and promised myself if I made it through my entire to-do list, I would treat myself to a glass of champagne. I write this post from the other side of halfway through the second. Throw a girl a bone. I am always honest. There are a lot of things i dislike in my mind, but on the other side of having accomplished them, I’m excited.

And I have been spending time and waiting. Since Sunday, I believe my body has been physically glued to my bed with illness: no reading, no Netflix, no nothin! There have been moments of mental conception and new creation inside of this fatigue, and my own path has … Read More

Social media causes angst. I want so much; and then I find myself looking in every drawer, closet, nook and cranny to eliminate, give away, and strip to bare minimum. I hate stuff. I want to give it all away, minus my wardrobe and my books. The books are my library. They tell me stories. And when you read the titles, they give you insight into where my mind has been and who i am. And as much as i don’t say, they speak for me. My clothes are my presentation to the world. They are my mood and how I’m feeling today. Who do I want to present, who do I want you to think I am? I hate … Read More

Yesterday kicked off the first day of CPAC in Washington, so most are distracted with what the GOP and Republican types are speaking on, complaining about, and rallying for. It is serious business, and 2016 is a big deal. So i figure the only way to get some attention away from that is to mention sex. You guys are so simple. Here we have it: from tech to sex, from innovation to the absurd… How Spritz Redesigned Reading, Letting You Scan 1,000 Words a Minute This could very well put me on top of the world! Interesting new live art medium. Women Read Out Loud Until Orgasm This just sounds (pun) absolutely ridiculous and staged. ‘Cubitt’s idea for the project evolved … Read More
