Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay? Am I okay?

Hidy-Ho, Neighbor!

Transferring into a university takes time and preparation. Getting started takes even more time and patience. Once started, there is very little time left. So, that’s where I am.

I still write often. Poems more so than fictional stories. I haven’t found the time to sit and focus on posting anything. That usually requires time to type, edit, edit, edit, post, reread, revise, repost. Aside from what I post, I am also using up my free time for a book I started early last year. No end in sight, yet.

In the meantime, I’m drowning myself in music and trying my best in life. A quote about the importance of music by Plato goes something like this: “[Music] gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” Or stated more bluntly by Nietzsche, “Without music, life would be a mistake.” So, with that, I turn up the volume for some feel-good music to blast my eardrums and continue work. I wish everyone to find contentment in life through their own tunes.

Cheers.

Dream Doodle

Fell asleep
Woke up
Dark outside
Not like nighttime

Thick darkness
Consuming the air
Refrigerator opens

Then closes

A presence is felt
It is acknowledged

A fire somewhere inside
No
The bushes outside on fire

Concern

Look more closely
Two cars are near the fire
Fire’s extinguished
Citizen leaves their car
Another leaves the second
They switch
A delivery

Image turns
Two dead, on their back
Candles lie around
Seeking something

Two candles fall on the far body
Flames dance across

A message unclear

Another Transition of Life

I never intended to start my blog this way, but, through recent and changing events, I chose that I would.

Many years ago, I was approached by someone part of a community event. Handing me a brochure, the person preached about how if a person were to consume only half the meat they currently consume, they will save x amount of animals. That was the start. My next push was my brother. I declared to him that I had an interest in becoming vegetarian. With wide eyes he told me that he attempted such an endeavor. “I could only last two weeks,” was his response. What started my vegetarianism was a single thought. I could top that. So, onward my transition went into the non-meat world. I had no clue what I was doing then, and I have no clue what I am doing now.

Many years have passed, keeping true to vegetarianism. With the occasional, accidental meat in my dish at a restaurant.
Now, feeling accomplished by exceeding my brothers attempt, I chose another transition.

Becoming vegan.
