6/29/18: A Specialized Face

Yesterday, I picked up a passenger at a location I not only had never been to before... I didn't even know it existed. That's saying a lot. I've been driving professionally on this island for over eleven years now, and living (and driving) on this tiny rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for [...]

6/28/18 On Relationship (Part one, Online #$%#@!&… )

My therapist recently asked me what a healthy relationship would look like in my eyes. Ha! Do I have a frame of reference? How would I know what one of these things looked like if I've never HAD one? Very soon, I'll be coming to the end of a very disappointing year of paying for [...]

6/27/18: The Morning Practice (The Other, This… That!)

That this is the other thing. This that is all there is. Is THAT all there is? ------ So, my dear reader (you still there?) as of yesterday's post, I am now done with what I've been writing under the working title of... Predators and Scammers and now, it's time for the editing. YEA! Please [...]

6/26/18: Predators and Scammers (Part twenty four, That Other Thing… This)

Perhaps it's a mistake to try and "wrap up" any of... This. This journey, this road, this series of adventures, encounters and decisions. This account of this part of my life. A time of life rife with distractions, toxins, motivations, maneuvers... magical moments, first times, fucked up times, times of unimaginable fright, times to unavoidably [...]

6/25/18: Predators and Scammers (Part twenty three, This… That and the Other Thing)

I went to sleep last night hoping to recall at least a few details about how this entire adventure ended, or even to get a better grasp on when it ended. I did not. So in today's post, I'm going to simply write of anything I can remember. Anything at all I can manage to [...]

6/24/18: Predators and Scammers (Part twenty two, Heading-Off Decisions #7)

My adult self is more than a bit incredulous that I could have made such a stupid decision. How could I have gone and put all that powder up my nose? Even if it HAD been cocaine and not the far more dangerous PCP that it was... a shitload of cocaine up my nose was [...]

6/23/18: Predators and Scammers (Part twenty two, Heading-Off Decisions #6)

... when I make what my adult self would have to say was one of the worst decisions of the entire “adventure” thus far. The worst decision of my life. ------------------------------------------ My adult self knows exactly why I have almost no memory of that afternoon. That afternoon, evening... all the way til the next morning. [...]

6/22/18: Predators and Scammers (Part twenty two, Heading-Off Decisions #5)

My adult self looks online for something to jog the messed-up morass of this memory, and what I find helps very little. I find reviews of the show, I watch a poorly done documentary film on YouTube about it. I read the Wikipedia entry about "The Godfather of Shock Rock" and where Alice Cooper was [...]

6/21/18: Predators and Scammers (Part twenty two, Heading-Off Decisions #4)

Fortunately, I made it through that gauntlet of pushing bodies without injury. Fortunately, most of that crushing crowd made it into the Omaha Civic Auditorium relatively unscathed as well. Well enough... as far as I know. I do know that no one died, but it could easily have been otherwise. Just ten months later in [...]
