So, I'm late on the new year's wishes and felicitations. That's OK, right? I travelled back to my hometown of Gotemba for the occasion. Arriving at night, the town was as quiet as ever. But I could see that the old royal residence wasn't immune to the tides of time. The Subway I had eaten… Continue reading Back Home and My Fortune (New Year’s 2021)
The dishes from Christmas dinner need to be put away. I keep staring out of the curtained window, like I'm waiting for something to happen. What is it artists use to record their videos? Do I even want to push my art into the world and jump on that bandwagon? A composition I threw together… Continue reading Hey! What’ve you been up to?!
Smack. Crunch. Shatter. All of them end in silence. And from that, the impact resonates within us; spurring us to produce sound and action. Laughter. Cries. Applause. A determined light blossoms in the vast void of Us, ultimately taking shape as thoughts and half-baked, heartfelt nothings. Like the air around us, all impacts are mystical… Continue reading Impact
In amazing human fashion, there are as many different takes on what a hug is as there are people on this planet. In my humble opinion, a hug is a place in which all is communicated and all is felt on the deepest of levels.
I shunned the idea and thought, "Pfft, why do I need to go find people? They should come to me!" I mean, that's what my family was always going on about whenever I'd have a falling out with love. Shouldn't it work the same way with friends? God, what a pompous noodle butt I was... am?
It's becoming more and more evident that, despite living out in the countryside, the virus will spread as long as people keep moving around, unaware they're contaminated. And would you believe I STILL see people not wearing a mask?
I sit here, greatly perturbed. A weight is resting heavily on me and the only thing I can actively think about is how I have this ugly urge to cry. My throat is parched, so I reach for some day-ol’ water in the glass next to me. The dreary, chunky clouds outside seem to reflect… Continue reading I feel heavy.
Social distancing has got me in the throes of passion. Passionate reflection, that is. Today's topic is self-validation. I might have touched on it here, but it's bothering me, so I'm going to yammer on about it again. The Backstory I have a love-hate relationship with social media. I've had a MySpace, a DeviantArt, a Gaia… Continue reading I want you, but I don’t need you: Personal thoughts on self-validation.
Inspired by one of the fellows I follow here on WordPress, I thought I would type out a quick update on my life. Slow, indeed! My days seem to pass as thickly as molasses. There is no pressure to complete work and projects. I didn't mention in my last post, but school is to be… Continue reading You snooze, you lose, Slow News.
Never would I have thought that I’d be stocking up on non-perishables and learning how to make a mask. Sure, the folks who have believed the zombie apocalypse would be coming all along have been prepared for ages, but what about the rest of us who can’t even grasp the idea? Part of me is… Continue reading Self-isowhat?
