Quote of the day: "He who would travel happily must travel light."- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
It's funny to start a letter like that; not just for the cliche implication but because I always think of the show Dear John starring Judd Hirsch. Somehow I think you'd appreciate that reference. I'm sorry I haven't written until now... to be perfectly honest, I feel guilty because I feel you deserve some big, wonderful post full of meaning and nostalgia, but I haven't been able to write things like that lately. I guess I'll just spit some stuff out.
I think the strongest...
Oh Hey. Nothin'.
Quote of the day: "They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself."- Andy Warhol
I think the main reason I've had such a difficult time getting myself back into writing and blogging is that I'm so different now. My mind works differently. I used to walk through the world with this kind of writer's filter describing every situation, constantly chronicling and documenting every thought, experience and emotion whether I was writing them down or not. I almost always had some sort of notebook within arm's reach, and when it came time to sit in front of a...
On the Boston Marathon Bombing.
Quote of the day: "..."- Everyone
I'm sorry if this comes off as insensitive but... actually, I'm not sorry if it comes off as insensitive. You know why? Because it's not insensitive.
Anyway, aside from the outrage that someone would have done such a thing, and aside from feelings of compassion and empathy for those killed, injured, or connected to those that were...
How the fuck did this happen?
Depending on how long you've known me or read this blog, you may know that I was a military policeman, and that during two armed conflicts, my responsibility was securing...
On Confidence, Personality, The Wall
Quote of the day: "If I have lost confidence in myself, I have the universe against me."- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Confidence is a funny thing. I'm sure I've written about it before, but it seems like I've been through five lifetimes since this blog began and I honestly can't remember most of it anymore. There are various reasons for this I'm sure, some physical, some psychological, but there is something that I can no longer deny: I operate a little differently now. I've identified what I think is a main reason why, and that is that I had almost completely lost all confidence in myself.
