true measures

Fractions of moments and slices of life: those things are not seasonal, like lemonade in the summertime.    

never plan a picnic

I wasn’t sure you’d come, but, I was going to plan a picnic. Then, I thought, if you don’t come, I’ll have to call it “dinner.” So, I never plan a picnic.    

My Sunday Best shelved and suspended

What are we missing? And, why has it left? And what do you want? These are not words of love or hope. For clarity, it’s a question about the things that grow. And about the things that won’t grow. Anymore. We forget the right…

an apology

An apology note from an old friend made me think, what does “sorry” mean, anyway? One single word against a load of pretty bad actions. It doesn’t seem fair, but a seemingly sincere “sorry” can overpower ‘bad’ things, I guess.…

life is a bowl of coffee…

          Well, something like that. Life was like that for about an hour, anyway– life was a bowl of hot coffee.                     Fresh, hot, milky coffee.  …

sometimes i doodle.

Sometimes I doodle on the “MEMO” app on my fone. I take notes, too. But I doodle a lot..with my finger… just for kicks and for, well for nothing. For nothing. Le Petit Prince. Because,  well, rest in peace prince.…

Haiku #13

  (it sucks to feel useless…i don’t recommend it. :) why is that…we’re smart, well rounded and well educated people with back bone and history and a bright future and a ton of accomplishments…and yet we feel useless.. Gah! i…

still life with pail and stick

Q: What did the stick say to the pail?     A: Nothing. They are both incapable of communicating. They just sat there getting rusty and old. Lifeless. Unable to move on their own. Simple, inanimate objects. ppppBUT … If…

do not pass

There was a man on a boat on the other side of the sea. I stood on the hill and waved at him. I wonder if he waved back at me?  

Here’s my corner of the universe

Here’s my corner of the universe. Then, I thought of a quote I heard from this french psychiatrist… so I had to google and find the actual quote.   What does it matter how many lovers you have if none of…

Um, party of one. The art of eating alone

There’s always room for breakfast. Well, sometimes, there isn’t time for it. Breakfast can be something you look forward to. You go to bed and think, hmmm. What am I going to do tomorrow? What exciting thing am I going to…

reality won’t go away…swoosh (VIDEO)

    It’s like an endless drizzle. Not that you want it to go away. You know what they say? One man’s reality is another man’s abstract. Well, I’m not sure if that’s said or not, but it should be…

the vanishing lofty dreams to hold you up

When you got something to hold you up, it’s comforting. When you got something that holds you back, it’s a burden. When you got something to hold down, it’s exhausting. When you talk and talk and hold forth, it’s tedious.…

a waiting room

In a waiting room you look at the magazines rack, and leaf through old unwanted books. Your eyes move to the ceiling, then glance at the floor. You don’t make eye contact with anyone else. Instead, you look at the…

someplace

  Sometimes, you may feel disabled, and you think you’ve chosen the wrong place. You have to remind yourself where you want to be, and you have to vocalize where you want to go. You want to visualize the road ahead.…

reminders

  Behave the way you want others to behave. (Kindness is always in style.) Break down some walls and barriers. (Big hammers are still handy) You’re pretty awesome. (I’m not just saying that!) Take the stairs (Elevators, um, get stuck…

exit through the frontal lobe

You’re out. Out of my head. And I’m out of my mind. And there’s someone else driving my car. But, I’m the only one here. And, now, there’s some brain malfunction. But, funny, I can still hear you.

champagne and french fries

Maybe you know this, or perhaps you don’t. I love champagne. I love chips. And I love fries. I love champagne with fries. That can be my dinner. And it’s how I celebrate. Celebrate anything. I kick off my shoes (or…

the convenience of insanity and loneliness

    The moment you hear their laughter and see their smiles love passes by at full speed. And, when they’re gone, loneliness weigh you down. Heavy and in slow motion. And with love’s circumstances, you feel numb. You hear a clock…
