The Daily Mess Shadows And Mirrored Images

I've always been inspired by a shadow. During the rising of a new sun the shadow sits with me. The light always hits my page just right. I stop. I study the shadow. I've been known to take photos of the shadow. It proves I'm never alone. What is its world like? You know, like the image in the mirror. If but for a moment we could step into their presence, what would we feel? My heart tells me that their existence isn't in the present,. A reflection is the past. For your mind to hold onto the...

Could You Go Back

A method of madness. In every place we look, the digital age has provided areas of out of control creative flow. Look at the streaming business! Netflix to Hulu and Disney+ to Paramount+. Platforms for writers, actors, directors and producers with ideas that are changing how we take in entertainment. We have so many choices that it's become natural to keep a television viewing log. I first dealt with this when I got into the Kindle lifestyle. All of these books in one place? I play the same...

A hawk has been living in my forest for nearly two years. A playful hawk in the way of making himself quite visibly and with great sound. The lessons we learn from the animal kingdom. Teaching ourselves to trust what nature shares.

The Daily Mess Beyond The Transition

I watched a music documentary about David Foster last evening. During this mind blowing story it occurred to me that I've had four conversations with him. We're living in an age of entertainment where fans and followers are demanding to hear the experiences. Over the past forty three years I've collected many conversations. Lately, at 60 I'm wondering about what's going to happen to them after the transition. Learning to lay out the next platform. Knowing who can and who will put the same...

Stream Thinking Creating The Conversation

As a stream thinker, there are no walls to block you from a rant or rave. There's not even a royal moat to keep you from entering newer areas of expression. Getting here isn't easy. Mainly because we've been trained to endlessly judge our art. When it doesn't live up to such an unfair acceptance, that sliver of creativity is gone. Our hearts have learned to accept empty. Lost forever. Starting on the day we chose to breathe.

De Frag Episode Twenty Six Being Nicer To Yourself

How often do you truly listen to the words you blurt out? Especially the thoughts geared at yourself.
