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.

6/4/19: The Colour of Power

"You can't park like that." "Excuse me?" I reply, rolling down my window with a smile. "You can't park like... THAT!"

Obviously attempting to indicate the manner in which my vehicle is positioned, perpendicular [...]

5/29/19: A Thousand Words (why not otherwise)

12:03 pm Setting down to contemplate the morning After a nice distraction of mindless cheesy 90s TV sci-fi entertainment After a nice lunch omelet with mushrooms, cheese, homegrown spinach and some fried potatoes After a nice start on dealing with an unpleasant personal issue which I am glad to now have some much clearer information [...]

5/21/19: Navigating the Web

2:29 pm Tuesday Van #1470 vehicle pre-trip check complete. A moment of calm. I think of my sweetheart in her yoga class taking care to nurture her bum knee. Breathe baby breathe.
