Brain Damage

Scribbling furtively has always been an enjoyable, cathartic hobby, though my previous employer has always tried to seek ways to denigrate that; consciously, for the most part, but I shall not be silent. Money is very often a method for the old to control the free; for money, much like Time, is a transient resource.... Continue Reading →



Undulating landscape, inclining mountain range, from the tower on the edge of town the boy sat, and looked out - a shepherd for this day. Arrived from Tebourba, and by the road stood Iser, round eyed in shock - though the sun was bright to his front. That the boy had ridden from Tunis to... Continue Reading →


Much longer there are doubts I shall remain to this plane, for I have grown tired of constant struggle. Emptiness prevails, such that only violence curtails. What I have seen in life has filled me with much joy, but now I look upon it with eyes devoid of such care as once my youth did... Continue Reading →


Remind me of what I am and who I have been, remind me of coasts of gold and amazement, remind me of pain and of fear. Remind me of love found in the eyes of another. All of life is change, and through the fires of misfortune and mistake and failure are we forged anew.... Continue Reading →

Another airport, another hour, and like the ticking of an eternal clock, each new day brings sights which question knowledge at one stage I believed to be certain, and then pass...

Retrospective becoming

I've watched it over and over in this dingy motel room, quietly deliberating what I could have done differently, how many errors I made and what I might do to improve. I have felt some apathy regarding the result of this latest scrap, but more over the inherent feelings of, "was that it?" I long... Continue Reading →
