Thousand

Everybody has a voice, some people have just refined theirs to a sharp point. Doctors, politicians, mommies, rock stars, construction workers, authors, friends, that kid at the bar talking about how steel I-beams don’t melt from burning jet fuel. Voices. Those with the loudest voices tend to become the most defined, even when they’re well-defined […]

It's New to Me

It comforts me that the more things change, the more they stay the same.  It’s cold in the winter and I sneeze in the spring.  Everybody is either falling in love, trying to get out, or avoiding it.  Some politician has a crazy idea that just might work and a lot act crazy. You read […]

Fun Time

I love having fun.  All kinds of fun.  The giggly laughs as energy and life glow out of me, illuminating.  The intent kind, where the clock alternates between fast spins and slow twists.  The kind where the moment swallows me whole.  All the many kinds of fun that permeate externally, internally, and eternally.  Making up […]

Why Bother: An Essay for the Future

Sometimes I wonder if I make a difference.  In the enormity of humanity, the vast ether of 5,000 years of civilization and the millennia to come, what ripples can I really send out?  In my quest to find my place in a world that will go on regardless of what I (or all of us […]
