I am enjoying the calm before the storm. There is a point, in the not so distant future where I am going to have to face the real possibility of being homeless. I guess, it has it has advantages really. I can finally be me. For the longest time I tried being the good son. I took the problems on the...

I sometimes wish the abuse my abuser had committed had been physical instead of psychological or emotional. My life would have been different. I would have left sooner. People would not feel sorry for him. But that is the clever thing about emotional abuse; the emotional abuser can hide it. ...

I am a sucker for technology. The more hyphens  and the more new words in it the better. My latest idea, an attempt to resurrect the serial style of writing has been modified. I am now in the process of adding video to each story. Why? For me it is a chance to interact with the readers more....

When I picked up  Pictures of the Mind: What the New Neuroscience Tells Us About Who We Are  it was because I was trying to change my life after getting out of a 20 year long emotionally crushing  relationship. I literally had my whole identity shaped and decided by a person who left...

Well me and my anti-literacy crusade has taken a  good turn. I have started publishing my first novella online. This batch of experimental writing will probably be updated every week or so until it is long enough to be published or until universal anti-literacy laws prevent people from reading...

I suppose that is why I spend so much time on this website. Because the people here tell stories, they share ideas and they do it in an interesting way. I have learned more about random things that I did not know I would care about. But I found, I do care about it, because the storyteller cares...

 I defeated Google. Therefore I win. Google was set up by smart people to make sure people like me never EVER break the internet. However I am now on the front page , at the bottom of the front page but on the front page. It makes me special…and not just  “Josh you get the blunt...

The big angry gorilla sits across me throwing banana peels at me every few moments. It is angry because I avoided him so long. I am pretty impressed actually because in such a small room he manages to take up so little of it, until the night, then he grows. The growing I don’t mind, it is the...

I was walking around a little town called Puyallup when I decided something. Normally deciding things is bad and this was no exception. I decided I would start a cult. This was a well thought out process that took me all of thirty seconds to settle on.  However as I stop walking and sat in...

I have often been a stranger in a strange land. It is an unsettling occurrence. I have learned over my years though that a “strange land” need not require you  to travel to a country where you don’t speak the language and where the food is confusing  in appearance and smell.It can be at a...

I trust places where there are people who are wearing backpacks. People who are wearing backpacks are more likely to be going somewhere. It is far harder to cause trouble to be causing trouble when you are on the move. People with backpacks are usually trying to add something beautiful and good to...

 About a week ago I was in Houston Hobby Airport and I was impressed at how much more comfortable they made the prison like searches before we boarded  the airplane. Then I thought to myself “Self you have not had enough coffee, there is a brilliant idea about to occur and you desperately...

Seattle is cool. Mamash cool. It isn’t possible to get cooler. There is something about the air and the nature and trees and the coffee that really brings out the good.   When we talk about good we are talking fantastically good weird people.   I  was sitting in a Starbucks . I was...

The  coffee stares at me from its mocking  perch. My elixir far beyond my reach. There will be no battle with zombies, No tests from the sphinx, Not even an angry troll in his misshapen toll booth. Not a quest,             ...

It must have been such an awesome experience. Just one that makes you pauses and think. 15,000 years ago people went to sleep praying that the sun would come up in the morning. They knew there were mornings, but they never knew if the next morning the same thing would occur. In fact if you look at...
