The Outsiders

March 7th, 2022 People who belong uphold the status quo, both because it benefits them and because they can’t imagine any other way; the outsiders are the ones who push us ever forward. I often find the universe giving me simultaneous, overlapping examples of something I need to learn or remember, because I am aContinue reading “The Outsiders”

First Official Day of my Kickstarter, Fire & Ice!

March 1st, 2022 You can check out my video message here: https://youtu.be/gxEoI6dNFTM Happy March! It’s over zero degrees, so it’s a beautiful one. TODAY IS THE FIRST OFFICIAL DAY OF MY FIRE & ICE KICKSTARTER! I made a video for you (just for you!), but if you prefer to read it, here’s everything I saidContinue reading “First Official Day of my Kickstarter, Fire & Ice!”

To A Flame With No Regrets

February 26th, 2022 I know I should be better than a moth, but I am not. This story has swift twists and turns, so hold on tight. I was driving past Buck Hill on 35 after work tonight when I saw the light: a spotlight, specifically, waving back and forth like a giant lightsaber overContinue reading “To A Flame With No Regrets”

Everything Just Is

February 25th, 2022 There are bitter things in this world that we’d like to think have lost their taste. We are humans, look at how far we’ve come, a society that believes that we are post-what-we-used-to-be. See how we have evolved and that history has been written, the future not a reflection but a brandContinue reading “Everything Just Is”

Pathways To Bliss

February 22nd, 2022 A cliché usually becomes a cliché for a reason, and that reason is usually because it’s true. Besides watching his interviews and studying the examples of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, I hadn’t dug too deep into Joseph Campbell’s catalog. Campbell was what everyone read. Lucas used Campbell to create StarContinue reading “Pathways To Bliss”

Monday Bloody Sunday

February 20th, 2022 I spent half of today thinking it was Monday. Not just thinking it. Living it as though it was Monday. My day off. And that would have been fine, had today not actually been Sunday. Now you’re probably thinking, “Is there anything so dumb that this man won’t write something about it?”Continue reading “Monday Bloody Sunday”

The Song That Never Ends

February 14th, 2022 I feel like today is a good day to talk about vulnerability. Because I feel like every day is a good day to talk about vulnerability. I can’t even count the amount of people who have been reading my posts all these years and then ask me some variation of: “When isContinue reading “The Song That Never Ends”

Bottomless Refills

February 11, 2022 I’m on empty. This emptiness is nothing new. Regular readers (hi, there!) will know that I’m the type who believes in using whatever tools work. It’s why I’m always trying to understand others, especially those who are not the same as me. Feeling empty, as least from a Western standpoint, is widelyContinue reading “Bottomless Refills”

An Aside on Piracy

February 9, 2022 People stealing shit isn’t new. America is full of hypocrisy; the same people who say capitalism works use their cousin’s Netflix password and pirate films they don’t feel they should have to pay for. If you and I went out to eat, and at the end of the meal you suggested weContinue reading “An Aside on Piracy”

Cold World Announcement Party

February 2nd, 2022 Announcing: Cold World, a new novel, to be released on June 2nd, 2022. “In 2222, our Earth has changed in countless ways. The people of our planet, thanks to generous corporations like the Knights — and through the development of wormhole technology — have advanced through the stars, colonizing moons, Mars, andContinue reading “Cold World Announcement Party”
