A New View

A New View

I take a breath and make a wish That this world will continue to exist. That we will learn from our mistakes. That we will give more than we take. As a new year begins again I say goodbye to the year that ends. Which almost broke the world’s back. As unemployment and foreclosures grew. […]

Are you here? . . . Say what?

I heard a professor say, once, scolding a student:  “Context, context, context.” Noam Chomsky, 1998?

Pulling ideas out of thin air. There, caught another so beware. I’m feeling empty inside today. Trying to keep the blues at bay. I’ve been battling unemployment I’ve had little time for enjoyment.

As I looked around online yesterday. Looking to pick up some tricks to work on my portfolio to sway A future employer my direction and see things my way. I realized again that everyone is using the same design effects. Glossy buttons and mirror shine as web 2.0 reflects The lack of concept over design which […]

One piece of paper or a document at best To explain your career and intentions, surely you jest. As we list out our skills and educational background. Experience and awards received while we are being found. We all must face the day we need to reformat our lives. Text alignment and indented to show that […]

Thousands Are Sailing

As if a weight was lifted. We spoke of our new possible next step. As if we were truly gifted. We spoke of our next best bet. We are pawns and can only go one move forward. As we pick ourselves up like a turtle with its shell going onward. Where opportunity calls we will […]

One Day Pass

The mind gives you limits from which to envision. Brought on by our culture you build yourself a prison. We often depart this world thinking we had no choice. That the decisions we made did not have a voice. As a prisoner of the mind myself. I have escaped today to tell you there is […]

Imitating Myself

Posted by on Feb 17, 2010 in 2010, Choken Word, Truth, unemployment

I imitate everything I see and hear. From the first syllables I heard in the womb. To sounds blasted in a lounge while drinking a beer. We learn through mimicking what we hold dear. Right now I am imitating someone with no fear. Someone who puts their soul out there for all to see. Someone […]

Exit and Entrance

I often say I can come up with ideas all day long. While I rub my belly and tap my head singing a song. So that’s exactly what I decided to do. One day I would write as many ideas that I could produce. So in the morning I woke for my 24 hour marathon. […]

most dreams don’t come true

This is my passion. I write with no desire for fashion. I write these words for you. I write these words to be true. I have given up all attachment to ownership. That through writing, this becomes our partnership. Between the syllables and grammar that is seduced And the images in your head that are […]

The Actors are getting nervous….

I was watching an interview with Pierce Brosnan this morning, and he was asked to give advice to young actors, and after he advised against sitting around waiting for the telephone to ring, Matt Lauer agreed saying ‘yeah, he’s treating it less like an actor, and more like a businessman’ and there was a general agreement that this was a virtue, to treat the art as if it were a business.

The stream flows over you. Cutting through rock and granite. Carving mental pictures in it. Shaping your physical and mental view. What is your cause? What will make you stop and pause? Is it homelessness or cancer research? Is it peace or educational solutions reached? What truly tickles your fancy? What would wake you from […]

Signals you detect on the ground. You sniff them as you look around. Looking for the path to find your way. Where to look for food and water today. Up and down the hills you go. Bumping into others you barely know. As we communicate through the air. As we Look for things that are […]
