A Dim Light In A Broken Sun
Man it's been a minute since I spoke to you face book. Life has surprises you wouldn't expect to be a blessing even if it hurts to understand. Misunderstood or understood missed really takes a toll on the true intentions a deep spirit has for the whole band. Lights stuck flickering in the restroom when you realize theirs no room to rest. You have to get up and go do much more than your best, you have family that counts on you to bring back the bag. This life is much smoother when your not stuck up in the past. Left to make a future with a different vision wishing you could paint the mission in the sky.
One of the two schools I attended had a great roof. It was several stories above a bustling downtown corridor. I don’t remember who showed me how to get up there, but it must have been a graduate in my freshman year. No button on the panel existed for the level required, you actually had to push two buttons at once.
Double Dare You
In Northeast Lake Country, Illinois, in the fall of 1969, the local news consisted of intriguing events. Bingo night results, political infighting, who got arrested for DUI, or worst, an auto accident, and of course, the highlights from the most recent football game between the Round Lake High School Panthers and some other High School team in the area.
Ironically I'm sick of complainers
Did you know that standing can cause you to feel tired? I used to have so many retail jobs that required me to physically stand all day, but I never thought about how those jobs were keeping me active. Now that I work remotely, I have to make a conscious effort to lose weight.
The unknown story
The morning light flowing through the window of the bag house is silenced without waking me up at all. "Another painful day" I meditate as I stretch my limbs on my upper bed, knowing that the people around me are breathing and shaking. I think of sitting under my warm clothes in my wispy dreams but I force myself to quietly go down my stairs.
Lost in Minneapolis
It was a cold Halloween night. I had been awake for over twenty-four hours. I didn’t know where I was on 35W. When I ran out of gas. In the center lane of the Highway. I got out of the Ford F-150 to push it to the shoulder and almost got ran over. “Fuck this,” I muttered as I got back in the truck and turned on my emergency flashers, and waited for the Highway patrolman.
Please get out of my way when I am watching a cooking show on the television. That is that one thing that makes me happy. It seems that it is like a drug to me. I just love watching the cooks how they come up with new recipe out of old recipes.
Revelations of a bartender
Dr. Charlotte Whittier had been a therapist for years. Her practice was small but well known for being the best in the district, having helped hundreds of people work through their problems, often ranging from stress and anxiety to coming out to their parents after years of suppressing themselves. She had heard thousands of stories and dozens of experiences and couldn’t think of a single thing that could surprise her.
Three of my Pipedreams Came True. This is Why You Should Be Careful With What You Wish For
Be careful what you wish for. This is the title of a book I read in junior high, which title became my mantra after learning lessons from being careful with what I wish to.
"Everything But the Sex" Couples
I don’t buy the “everything but the sex” couples. I am looking for a reason. You are looking for a reason. Affairs are a reminder of what is missing. As much as I love my partner, the thought of not experiencing passion, desire ever again makes me want to weep.
This Is A Sign
Here I go again. I leave the house looking for signs of not being alone. I look for numbers, 111, 222,555,888. Something to let me know I am doing the right thing. I look for signs to let me know there is something bigger than myself. Some higher power that is guiding me in the right direction and telling me what steps to take next.
My Right Hand Has Become My Best Friend During The Pandemic
I promise that this isn't what you think. But then again, I don't know how you think. This story about my right hand started in March of our Lord's year 2020.
