The Life of Brian (In the Now)

I love to journal by telling stories. What’s going on in the life of Brian, in the now.

9/10/19: Sad and Angry Road

8/9/19: The Good, The Perfect and The Enemy

Every action every reaction an opportunity for discovery and then some I revel in my privilege To do otherwise would be disrespectful wasteful altogether self-indulgent Bad enough the wasteful, selfish privilege, inherent in the very fact of my existence Bad enough that I dare complain as much as I do Best to bless by sharing [...]
