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. Whether it be from stuff that happens at work, while hanging out with friends or while working on other creative projects. Stuff happens that I may just feel a need to interrupt my usual memoir-writing activity, that is this blog’s primary function. I share those stories here.

12/25/28: The Naked Chronicles (Episode One)

“You could see her thoughts swimming around in her eyes, like fish - some bright, some dark, some fast, quick, some slow and easy, and sometimes, like when she looked up where Earth was, being nothing but colour and nothing else.” ------ Ray Bradbury ------------------------------------------- "Sweet dreams my love." I send this one last text [...]

12/21/18: Love Reigns

It's quite a rainy morning here in my little jungle room near the end of Waikupanaha street. My little corner of paradise. A good time to edit my book, play music, read, watch Netflix, write this and think about my sweetheart... ------ Yesterday I left the property earlier than I'd expected so I didn't write my [...]

12/18/18: Practice Makes Practice

Whatever you practice, you'll get good at. ------ Prem Rawat ------------------------------------------- From last night's dream... A huge truck (an "eighteen-wheeler") approaches. It's obviously custom-built as a luxury vehicle and the guy standing next to me is operating it by remote-control. He insists I get in so he can give me a ride to the concert. [...]

12/17/18: Naked Inspiration

Sometimes it just clicks. Or... flows, or perhaps it just shows up without verbal accompaniment. Of course by "verbal" I mean in the grammatical sense. You know, as a verb rather than as an adjective. I'm not making any reference to the spoken word here. No. ------ No, no ,no. No need to see it [...]

12/15/18: Howzit!

It was a chill day all round. A good day. A leisurely loquacious morning with a new housemate. Later... a lazily languid and largely laconic drive. My sweetheart then chimed in... in fine form. At around 10:27 PM my sweetheart responded to my "Hey sweetheart, how's your day going?" and reported a fine start to her [...]

12/14/18: Constant Love

"The only thing that is constant, is change" ------ Heraclitus of Ephesus "All you need is love" ------ John Lennon -------------------------------------------- The power went out last night and didn't get back on till noon today, so I went for an early lunch at the local "Down to Earth" health food market to try and write. Try [...]

12/12/18: Commitments, Discoveries and Random Blessings

Doing a bit of cleaning this morning, I come across a small drawing made for me by my dear friend's daughter. I believe she was ten years old at the time. I keep it on my desk in a small, raku, porcelain pinch-pot (made by someone I knew in college but have now forgotten who) [...]

12/9/18: In Between

In between love And trying to scheme love Who can say what we will find? ------ Tom Waits ---------------------------------------------- Ten minutes and I'll board my flight. Ten minutes and I'll be on my last leg of this, my return to Oahu. A man passes by and comments on my guitar case. "Looks like that baby's [...]
