Almost

Sometimes something stays with you forever. It is always a heart-pounding, breathless, thrumming immediacy. Other things are not so powerful, they beckon only slightly, they still exist intellectually but they are now part of the background hum; filtered-out chatter. They have become nonsensical and half-real. I think of many of my posts in these terms: when I read them I can almost feel them again.

Almost.

Influx

These things I write. These emotions I have been given the gift to evoke. I have at my disposal descriptors for nearly every possible emotional-experiential influx.

I can make the words I choose become motion pictures in your minds; make every feeling so gruelingly real that you are forced to feel it. I will chain you to my muse and tied to my dream, my nightmare – you will fly and you will cry.

And the beat goes on

Once again I am drawn southward. In a matter of scant months, I will be breathing salt-tinged air.

This is good.

Hiatusical like a musical but not.

I have been busy. It’s the playoffs (playoff beard in this heat has been murder but I persevere); I’ve got all sorts of reasons for why I’ve been basically ignoring my blog.

None of them are really true though.

It’s mostly just that I don’t have all that much to say right now, and wasting space, even digital space, isn’t my style.

I’m sure that my blog will once again have daily posts, I’m just not going to promise that that day is today.

Soooooo, yeah.

Keep rocking hard.
