Louisville in Winter

I dreamt about snow. A dense, wind-blown drift, pushing in through two doors on opposite walls of my garage home. A father and son in snow gear staggered through one of the doors to help me move the snow. I was shocked – turned my back for one second and all frozen hell broke loose. All of my garage crap,…

Trump’s Great American Vision for the Future

Seems like every day there’s a fresh headline about the racist, fascist actions of Donald J. Trump, the man, the myth, the gastrointestinal virus. For example: “Trump Thinks Whales Should Get the Vote – Not Blacks Though,” “New Polls Show Trump More Popular Than God in Some Atheist Households,” “Trump a Little Sleepy, Might Nap Soon.” The endless media attention…

Dream Journal Excerpts II

More excerpts from my endless dream journal. I’ve decided that when I start a punk/pop/emo band, it’s going to be named “A Dream to Stay Awake.” Pretty sure that name isn’t taken.

A Day Filled with Books

I did a lot of reading today. The line-up of library books is reaching ridiculous levels, especially now that I’ve coerced myself into checking out all 22 collections of Fables comics. That’s like, 100+ issues. All because I accidentally checked out volume 22 and therefore had to check out volumes 1-21. These are the dilemmas I create for myself. Syria…

Dream Journal Excerpts I

I read somewhere that keeping a dream journal means that you’ll be more likely to remember and, eventually, control your dreams. Lucid dreaming, in other words. While I haven’t experienced that yet, I have managed to write down hundreds of dreams, some unsettlingly simple, others boringly long. Most of the time, I write down the dreams as soon as I…
