Writing, Thoughts 2022 V2

Closed vintage industrial brick factories, vintage boxing gyms, windowsills, windowsill caffes. A lot of things go unsaid. Speaking the truth, speaking against society sometimes has worse consequences than telling a lie. Deception, lies, human’s showing their ugliest side. Critical mass bicycle rides. Watcha ya doing? Doing good things. Eggnog Christmas morning. There’s usually a solution. Let’s get things situated. What’s your story? Steam whistles from a pot of water boiling atop an antique wood stove. Restless in bed, rain falls rapidly. Bikes, Buses, Beaches, Boardwalks, Books and Baseball, Writing and Riding. A bird sits high above chirping upon a branch. Denim Jackets, Leather Jackets, Leather Couches, Pedestrian only streets.

Writing Thoughts, 2022
Pancakes with blueberry toppings. When I’ve got nothing to write, I write about nothing. Then, I’ve got something to write about. Compassion, tact, Russian Blue Cats, Rabbits. Anger, jerks. There are people in this world worthy of the word hate. There are things in this world so horrific, they’re unforgivable. There aren’t any winners in war, only losers. There isn’t any art in war. There are good things in this world. Good conversations, smoothies, fairs, prayers, God. Walking under the moonlight and stars on a brisk city night. Cool things from the past, Pagers, Typewriters, Service Merchandise, Bradlees, Saturday Morning Cartoons, the 1980’s. Dave and Busters, book store cafes.
Birds chirping early in the morning.

Writing, Thoughts

January 4th, 2021

Jelato, Coffee Toffee, Duffel Bags, Typewriters, Betafish. Wandering from street to street, ally to ally, no place to go. Always hungry, always tired. Never enough sleep. Never enough food. Wasting away. Sun beats down. Burning heat rises from the street. Dirty looks, cold as ice. Skateboards, Hooded sweatshirts. Writing under the stars. A pen, my only friend. Stringing letters into words, words into sentences. Left to right, top to bottom. A blank page becomes a story. City Buses, Bikes, PB&J’s, Batting Cages. Cold leftovers the day after Thanksgiving. A person who is put in a situation to fail, will fail almost every time. Pollution, waste, lies, deceit, miscommunication, wars. There’s almost always a better way. Options, laughter, urban, industrial, peace, gardens, health, honesty, recycling.

Questions To Think About, Without The Answers

January 20th, 2020

Once in a while I’ll ask myself a few of the following questions. Sometimes, when I want something different or good to think about. Other times to remind me of old memories. A few of the questions and answers help keep me grounded. A few require a tremendous amount of honesty on the part of the person answering the question.

You’re welcome to post the answers in the comments section. I usually answer most of them to myself. A few of the less personal questions I’ll answer on my personal computer or a notepad.

  • If you could give a visitor to your town or city one cool (free) place to go within the area, where would you tell them to go and why?
  • What are your personal seven wonders of the world (not including family, friends and pets)? For instance, different items you might own or the joy of a cup of coffee in the morning, ect.
  • How many things were you taught in grade school that turned out to be false?
  • Regardless of whether you believe in God or not, let’s say for arguments sake, there was someone you had to answer to after death in order to get to a good place. What questions do you think they’d ask? What answers would you give? What are the thing’s you’d want to emphasize?
  • Whats your list of coulda shoulda woulda’s and what can you do today to ensure you don’t have that list tomorrow?
  • Of all the fights and arguments you’ve been in during your life, how many have you started? How many did the other person start? How many were a result of a mutual disagreement?
  • What things do you think about the most? For instance, Women, Cars, Food, Finances, ect.
  • Of all the things you’ve owned, that you don’t own anymore, what are the item’s, if any, you would like to still own?
  • If you’re over forty, how many teachers do you remember from High School, and why do you remember them?
  • What are some of the things you want to take to your grave? Not material items. Memories you’ve made. Things you’ve done. Even things you haven’t done, that you’re glad you didn’t.
  • Whats the most important life lesson or bit of knowledge you’ve ever been given?
  • When is it ok to tell a lie?
  • If you could pay a dollar per television channel and pick the channels to watch, in what order would you pick the channels?
  • If you were president, what would be your priority list of things to get done?
  • If you were your own worst critic, what are the things you feel you’d need to improve upon? Which instances draw your harshest criticism?
  • Do you remember any of the wishes you’ve made during your life? How many have come true, if any?
  • What types of things are you good at naturally, without much instruction?
  • If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
  • What are the top five greatest moments of your life?
