What My Parents Did Right

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

I just realized with a smile that the best thing my parents probably did in my upbringing
Was to shower me with books and encourage me to read.
Show me the possibilities of storytelling, language, and thought.

Thanks Guys. :)

Generational Progress

Every generation we get slightly closer to knowing how a life should be lived.

Pleasure Reading

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Light, airy head
Sharp, cool breath through nostrils
Wide eyes
Wide as the size of your face
Letters are translated from shapes to sensation
They swim through your eyes
Making your head even lighter

There Are Moments

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

There are moments when I can throw my head back
and Exhale.
Unclench my diaphragm
Roll my eyes into the back of my head
And think By god
“I love this”

My Ideal Array of Belongings

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

A small one bedroom apartment.
A computer.
A bed.
Some dress shirts.
Some pants. And a belt.
A few tees and shorts.
A subscription to The New York Times.
A subscription to The New Yorker.
My Twitter account that keeps additional tabs on Slate, Salon, and The Atlantic.
A membership to a gym.
A membership to an MMA gym.
Post-it notes and pens.

Maybe that’s all I’ll need.
