Random Awesomeness

Announcements, rants, affirmations and all else that doesn’t quite fit into the other categories are posted here. From poetry that probably won’t be made into a song, to in-the-moment expressions of thoughts and feelings that probably won’t make it into a story. I will share here, whatever comes to mind and heart. Occasionally, I also may take creative writing pieces from my past, revise and revive them to post here.

5/4/18: Obeisant Anesthetic

I love the movies. Movies are of this world and yet I become immersed in another. An other, entirely created world. Bound only by imagination, movies take me where I had no idea. I had no idea I could go. There. Anything can be shown in movies now. The impossible is made to look real. [...]

5/2/18: Owning My Own Mess

At this point in my little writing project here. Here in this blog. This blog with the purpose of writing memoir... I'm feeling a need to say something about my whole, "I'm the good boy/man" theme/meme. I honestly do see myself as the kind of person who wants to do right, or at the very [...]

4/24/18: Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs This is one I left it on the road Along my path Under rocks Dangling from a flower petal by a single silk strand An unconscious message of hope Submits Breadcrumbs These are those They still powder my clothes Staining fingers Combing hair Clinging to corners of my mouth the brave few look within [...]

4/21/18: Brian’s Bullshit, My Theory of Everything (Part three, The Tao of Traffic)

“We all live in a tragicomic situation, a life that is in part absurd simply because it is not of our own making. We are born into a disordered world, into a family we did not choose, into circumstances we would have had somewhat improved, and we are even called by a name we did [...]

4/20/18: Brian’s Bullshit, My Theory of Everything (Part two, Hard to Find)

I start with rhyme A second time The only choice Where be my voice -------------------------- Purpose, intention, reason, function. ------ To create a practice space for judgement. To expound, expand and experience ideas. Other formats, venues and vehicles have been unsatisfactory. For ideas generated to permeate other creative endeavors. ------ Hope, dream, fear, lament. ------ [...]

4/15/18: Commitments, Confoundments and other Truths

I started this blog over six months ago now by announcing my commitment. My commitment to posting at least something here every day. Thus, the title... the Heading... The Daily Brian! I did not meet that commitment yesterday and that fact has brought up several thoughts, feelings and whatnots. Whatnots that are now conspiring and [...]

3/14/18: Bumps in the Road
