pure in stride

pure in stride I run barefoot – silent and free past footprints vaguely detectable [fading] in the rising sun arresting holds of uncertainty released into a warming breeze surrendering brilliantly into a tango pulsating within body and mind     pure in form I run barefoot – unrestricted, uninhibited, uncontrolled aligned amongst hours attached on the wind, time relaxes altering attitude, letting-go silent in its…

by the grace

“by the Grace of god, I was not on that plane!” was reported and no one questions, no one replies:   “what about the poor bastards ON the plane, where the fuck did their Grace go?”   this god loves you yet this god fucks your neighbor?   you survive . . . they die   Grace is funny that way . . .  they burn,…

so [this] is living

so [this] is living? living a life breathing – decision-ed air revised soil evaporating flesh: pale plain processed as   radiant rays [rebuked] return reflective radiation . . . remorseful for trying      

living ~ is a run of thoughts 


of laces binding

barefoot through mud

below, you will find a “re-post” of a blog I wrote a number of months ago. after running nearly 6 miles yesterday on muddy wet, slippery cold – beautifully squishy trails that seeped fascinating goo between my toes . . . I could not better describe the experience, than I had once before:     pure in stride, I run…

isn’t it strange

isn’t it strange – how difficult simple companionship actually is? we spend our lives being taught/told to achieve, to get-ahead, to acquire wealth and material security [yet] the simpleness of human interaction and friendship: companionship – eludes most, as we’ve forgotten the basics of who we are as a species isn’t it strange – how difficult a simple walk actually is?…

sidecar wall


* With rare occurrence, do I offer insight from whence a “thought” was born. Yet: brief glimpses of how I view the energy of life, may give permission – the freedom for someone else to simply let their mind and words wander free. Permission for those of US, who are perfectly NORMAL to disregard [those] of evolutionary mis-print [boring fucking…

barefoot – through time unrushed

barefoot ~ through time unrushed – occurs [remembrance] of form innate of balance of movement-free: that everyone can experience . . .   slow down you’ve been there before so why rush to get back   reduce down you’ve had it before so why crave more   simple down you’ve had it before so why replay it again   speed…

I noticed the error in my creation] does that bother you, does it crawl up your spine [that] need to…

there is no genre

there is no genre – no thing I don’t have what you ask   see ~ I write from reality [it] whispers sweet-nothings in my brain whispers charming rants – salutations my dear friend: “who are you” “what do you do” “where are you from”   [“when” – wasn’t forgotten]   and ~ the bird chirped [its] praise through the…

what if -

  what if –   you are wrong:   your “facts” arriving [from]  the stick-up-the-ass   did you ever stop [stop] to smell               smelling ~ from whence your “facts” arrived


time, efficiency, mass-production . . . at the least possible cost   living –  has now become scheduled: as watch’s clocking breathes, dictate success or failure and “more, more, more” rams beats of blood, pumping you along . . . hurrying you . . . to return to the schedule which you are rushing to escape!   as from the…
