Where Would I Be?

First, I want to thank everyone for your prayers and good thoughts during my surgery and recovery.  It was not an easy experience for me.  My time in the hospital following the surgery was especially rough.  My adorable mom came and took care of me during the week following being released from the hospital.  I […]

Love Me Dead

On Thursday I undergo surgery. It is a fairly common operation, however I am at high risk. I am nervous about having this procedure done, despite the fact that it will change my life forever in a positive way. Even though it is possible that gastric bypass surgery can in some cases lead to death, […]

So Much to Say

I find sometimes it’s easy to be myself. Sometimes I find its better to be somebody else. I say my hell is the closet, I’m stuck inside. Can’t see the light. And my heaven is a nice house in the sky; got central heating and I’m alright. Can’t see the light. Keep it locked up […]

Burn One Down

The mountain north of my work was on fire today. The view from my cushy chair on the 3rd floor of the well air conditioned building left me without a care in the world. Besides, I didn’t see any houses on fire; only grass and bushes and trees. I’m sure there were houses in danger, […]

Zombie Nation

I had an epiphany the other day. If it was not for computers and the internet I would not be as intelligent. The internet in no way placates my desire to learn, adapt and grow, however, it does add greatly to the sum of my knowledge. The threads of my life have been so interwoven […]

Hardest Button to Button

Things have been different lately. Sometimes I get so caught up in the daily routine that I forget about the beauty of the mundane. Two weeks ago I started paying close attention to the habits that I have acquired over the years. I witnessed myself performing tasks and going through a routine that I started […]

California, Rest in Peace

I hate moving. Since my initial move out of Southern California I have moved 10 additional times. That is WAY too many times, especially considering I only moved out 5 years ago. That is an average of 2 moves per year. Ridiculous. I just finished my 10th move a couple weeks ago. Pretty much got […]

Circles

Life is one big circle. So many facets of our existence are truly ironic. We spend all our lives trying to find meaning. We have jobs we despise in order to make that “decent paycheck” thinking money is going to unravel the mystery of the universe. What do we need the money for anyway; to […]
