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.

2/20/19: Chill Bus Challenges (Part four, Perturbation Equation)

Love + Love = Love/Love BUT!! Love/Love ÷ Errancy + Solecism x Happenstance and Stormy Weather = Challenge10 ------ A few hours ago, I began to write an entire piece about yesterday's very challenging day at work and then... I had a sweet talk with my sweetheart and took a nice nap and now... So ready [...]

2/14/19: Chill Bus Challenges (Part three, Believe it or… )

"When I ask you about something that you believe in — whether you believe or don’t believe in climate change or whether you believe in some political position or other — as soon as I raise the question why, you have answers. Reasons come to your mind. But the reasons may have very little to [...]

2/13/19: Let it Rain

Let it rain Let it rain Let your love rain down on me. ------ Eric Clapton ------------------------ 7:34 am Another downpour awakens me... again. The first one that woke me this morning was an hour and a half ago. THAT was a LOUD rain. It was coming down all at once. Just dumping out of [...]

2/12/19: Intimacy Beckons

8:21 am Immersed in the slow, back and forth texting communication with my sweetheart. My heart, my life, my love... is full. In THIS moment. Slow... only due to the reality of our respective proximity. In THIS moment. A reality that, while outwardly might be seen as a hindrance to intimacy... Is instead, the exact opposite. [...]

2/8/19: Morning Meditative Moments (again)

6:26 am I awake with a haunting tune that's been in my head for days now. Over and over, it comes at random from time to time. Not the lyrics (although I find them interesting) it's the melody... the rhythmic drone. Eye in the Sky (Allan Parson's Project 1982) The silence of the pre-dawn here in [...]

2/6/19: Chill Bus Challenges (Part two, Regulating the Internal Judgement Machine)

It never shuts off. This is a good thing. I need clear judgement to navigate my world. The primary focus, is awareness-inspired intentional action. Thus, I must also employ a reality-induced regulatory device. To keep me where I long to dwell In that peaceful heart-space My sweetheart is always there ------ When an otherwise closed [...]

2/5/19: Morning Mind Mediation

7:11 am The sleep report on my CPAP machine shows me a red, sad face. Apparently, my nose pillow didn't have a proper seal. It also shows only five minutes of usage hours so... Am I still dreaming? I woke up with Hotel California playing loudly in my head and visions of random buildings and other [...]

2/4/19: Chill Bus Challenges (Part one, Harmlessly Happy)

"So I  guess The Patriots beat LA today, eh?" "The Patriots ma'am? I'm sorry but... " "You know, the game." The nice elderly woman carefully steps onto the lift and looks at me with a kindly smile. There's no trace of incredulity so I take the plunge and continue my feigned ignorance. This is the [...]

1/24/19: Channeling My Random Stream of…

Consciousness abates, as memory Navigates Self absorbed rhythms Self generated times A word... my love, brings me home A test perhaps A Tome? Tombé? (rhymes with djembe by the way) ------ My friend (from a very rhythmic family) is expecting a boy. The boy is to be named... Djembe (rhymes with tombé by the way) [...]
