Petrified with stale thoughts Desiring more than anything to be here  Unable to take the first step forward from there Backwards in a trance with incessant noise failing To apply what is known. Connect the receiver,  Acquire momentum. Standing unscathed--  From elsewhere to super-standing. Image taken from Pinterest


Spies By Coldplay, Conquer Your Spies!

Hey guys, I haven't posted any music in a while, but while sending another Coldplay song, I started listening to the rest of parachutes, and of course, one of my favorite songs by Coldplay, 'Spies.' I believe that this song is about conquering your negative thoughts. I believe that any awareness of our darkness extinguishes … Continue reading Spies By Coldplay, Conquer Your Spies!

Dreams Of Phuket

I've been waiting a long time for this moment. I've just woken up to finish the last of my packing, and I will be heading to the airport to return to Phuket soon. When I left in May, I felt that I had a lot of unfinished business in Phuket. I hated my job at … Continue reading Dreams Of Phuket


Actually able to go outside  Toasted comfy in all these layers  Squinting at a visitor thought forever gone  Preventing stagnation, yet still blind In your presence 'I suppose I'll take my limited vision of you as you sparkle, unable to fully conceive of how I was resurrected.'

Alcoholic millionaire Another fine seasoned scotch Soon returning home Bowling pins on sidewalk Unknowingly almost struck -- Addicted to scales Fluctuating through the day Sacrificing health Gravity's affirmation Identity's lethal weight -- Ten thousand follows Mindlessly preached mindfulness Business prospers Completely disconnected Grave digger attached to shovel -- Some things money can buy Possessing sugar … Continue reading Metrics

The Decisions We Make

Sometimes while reaching crossroads or feeling like you're treading in poisonous waters, you are required to make a difficult decision. However, it is important to notice that these poisonous waters may release debilitating fumes which cloud judgment. The obscurity of each path towards safer waters may not seem so clear anymore, and also create the … Continue reading The Decisions We Make

The Dreamer and The Dream

"There is a dreamer, and there is the dreamer of the dream. The dream is a short-- lived play of forms. It is the world-- relatively real but not absolutely real. Then there is the dreamer, the absolute reality in which the forms come and go. The dreamer is not the person. The person is part of the dream. The dreamer … Continue reading The Dreamer and The Dream

Phuket Part 3– The Big Buddha And Phrom Thep Cape

Yesterday was a pretty wonderful day. On the way to Kata beach the previous two times I had always seen the Big Buddha overlooking both Kata and Chalong, but never really knew how to get there. To my excitement I found it was accessible by Chalong, where I live now, so decided last weekend to … Continue reading Phuket Part 3– The Big Buddha And Phrom Thep Cape

First Date

A barrier of language broken by mutual affinity to discuss the mundane. Miraculous when oysters giggle. Iridescent sparkle felt and reflected. A stolen umbrella, and chariot ride benevolently bestowed. Escalating lessons in modality received. Self-conscious of linguistic struggle drowned by security from his comforting presence. Secure from their mother's tears as she fires bullets. A … Continue reading First Date


The blind leading the blind. Regurgitation resuscitates a child's pleading wish. Belonging by inspiring smiles. Being without achieving. Continuing without reaping progress while learners enjoy their bliss. Sowing seeds for future futile endeavors. Or does the futility lie in the expectation? Accomplishment seduces failure. Success permeates, escorted by forgotten passion. Manifested in remembrance of fading … Continue reading Ambiguity
