Many years ago, while at brunch with friends, I uttered the line that was to become representative of my peculiar sense of humour: “If I had meditated as often as I have masturbated, I’d have become enlightened by now.” No doubt, this line will be the first one spoken in my eulogy many, many years from now.

I never expected to be the one. All my life it has been someone else called upon to stand motionless. Mind you, I had no trouble doing it. It was actually quite easy. In fact, I still have the nagging feeling that even if I had not been called to this task, I would have ended up standing motionless somewhere else.

June 7, 2015

Stalker Lyrics Tell A Different Story

June 4, 2015

STALKER   Some people call me stalker. Some folks call me creep. If you could live inside my head, you’d never ever sleep. It’s not that I am darker, at least not more than most. It’s just that I own who I am. I’ve friended all my ghosts.   Come midnight as the world retires, […]
