“Unique Creative Bliss” (Original Poem)

Songs, and Blogs and Piano compositions, An artist at work on creative revisions, So much expression without asking permission, Just letting myself follow my vision. I write, I create, I refine, I make, I explore the idea just for creativity’s sake I follow the path to see where it goes, Before me the creative river […]

“The Trusty Jog” (Ode to Running)

A few days ago I blogged about how much I am appreciating my runs these days as a mental uplifter to set me up with a good day. Tonight I got poetic on the subject 🙂 “The Trusty Jog” I got caught up in a murky thought But that’s okay, I’m not distraught It’s a […]

The Closet Renaissance Man Calls Out that Old Nasty

Earlier this month I mentioned the Benjamin Franklin biography I read a few years ago. Since reading this book, Franklin has seemed to me the perfect example of someone who permitted himself to follow any and every interest without self-censoring, over-thinking, or stopping himself. He pursued every passion with complete commitment and abandon befitting the […]

Chain-Mail Epiphany

So there are good-feeling thoughts, and there are not-so-good-feeling thoughts. And today I was looking at some old videos I made, in which I played some original music. I was admiring myself and routing for myself for my efforts back then. “Wow!” I thought, “Great job performing that! You are awesome!” At the same time, […]

The Happy Mind (Poem)

There is a saying I heard a long time ago: “The mind can be a dangerous place to go alone.” And yes, this can definitely be true… when your mind is in a funk. But when your mind is happy and clear… that is another thing entirely! Life becomes a joy to experience. I wrote […]

“If You Are Ready” (Original Poem)

I wrote this poem tonight, and it reminds me of a similar poem from “Think and Grow Rich.” This is my late-night effort at being staid and literary: No one knows what happens next But man will get what he expects In the end his life works out To match the things he thinks about […]

Day 396: Jovial Patriarch (Creative Writing)

For too long I languished in a dungeon deep in the earth. This abominable hole was of my own devising, though I had forgotten creating it. I lived off the crusty remains of sewer rats and foul water. I was alive in body, yet in my mind and spirit I was nearly non-existent. I was […]

Day 384: You’re Now In Alignment (Original Rhyme)

(Disclaimer–written long after I published this post—I often discuss the topic of “Alignment” on this blog: as in, getting aligned, reaching for satisfaction, and generally feeling good. The tone of this poem is… er… not quite so good-feeling. I almost wanted to change the title so it didn’t appear when you search “alignment” on this […]
