Revelation In Wet Ash

Revelation In Wet Ash

Poetry is written with tears, fiction with blood, and history with invisible ink. ~Carlos Ruiz Zafón If I could be a success in any profession, I would choose to be a writer…now that I am past the prime of my athletic prowess and the screaming adulation of millions when obliterating an attack on the football […]

Will Someone Rise to Unfuck Us?

Will Someone Rise to Unfuck Us?

The thought is a deed. Of all deeds, she fertilizes the world most. ~Emile Zola My mental masturbations spew thought seeds into the moist digital void at an alarming rate…maybe not alarming…let’s say at a steady rate of at least one blog per day for over a year and counting. Dare I say, I write […]

Past Future and Future Past

Past Future and Future Past

Conservatism and Liberalism are Both Fool’s Errands

Conservatism and Liberalism are Both Fool’s Errands

May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears. ~Nelson Mandela If I had to break the conservative vs liberal dichotomy into concise definitions, it would be: Conservatives desire to conserve the past. Liberals desire to liberate from the past. I understand both perspectives, believe each has merits. Folly begins at the extreme ends of […]

Thick Skin Flush with Embarrassment

Thick Skin Flush with Embarrassment

True terror is to wake up one morning and discover your high school class is running the country. ~Kurt Vonnegut My thick skin breaks the arrows of embarrassment as if they were threads of ice. In other words, I am not easily embarrassed. But…but I am intensely embarrassed that my generation has allowed our country […]
