Train

Poetry

You are the hero.

You are wanted. Needed.

You are the center of adoration, ridicule, passion.

You provoke thought, jealousy, change.

Most importantly:

You are in control.

You can see the awe in their eyes and their hearts.

It must be true.

.

.

The world falls away

The director has called, “Cut!”

The side characters take a break.

Blinkered confusion sets in

But only a moment before

The dreadful clarity.

You get off the train.

.

.

The director has just received a new script.

Resolutions

Uncategorized

My resolutions for the year:

  • Say “no” when it makes sense.
  • Don’t apologize unless at fault.
  • Don’t feel guilt/shame for things beyond your control.
  • Create.
  • Be more decisive.
  • Unless you are creating, get off the computer.
  • Less introspection, more doing.
  • Waste more paper.
  • Make mistakes.
  • Consume less.

I wont finish all of these by the end of the year, but if I work on most of them and maintain, I will be a better person than I am now.

Better?

Yeah, at least set up to do better things.
