The Void: A place between adventures, hope, and new ideas

The Void

I hate “THE VOID”. You know, that place in-between goals, adventures, and dreams. The place where all one can do is exist and wait for their brain to decipher the puzzle and find a new direction. What do I hate most about The Void? Well there is a certain chance that while I am in this dark…

When the Sand Runs Out

When the Sand Runs Out

I don’t live a conventional life. I never have.  Maybe it’s not in the cards for me, or maybe it’s my personality, but nevertheless I am not what you would call “normal”. Not that I haven’t tried to fit myself into the normal box. I have. But I am wholly convinced that it was an…

My New Favorite Meditation Technique

Lately, I’ve been using a new meditation technique that’s been really effective for me. I’ve found that if I can relax each and every one of my face and head muscles, I can suddenly feel my heart in an amplified way. Taste it even. This is an incredible feeling.  I usually do this right when…

A post about being happy

What About Happy?

It’s easy to talk about pain. There’s a great deal of entertainment in it. Poems blossom from deep struggle and confusion, and no great story is without obstacles. Yes, pain is an artist’s best friend. But what happens when we’re happy?  What do we write about then?  I find myself in a particularly upbeat state at the…
