I have “discovered” yet another band who has been rocking out for years without my knowledge. It’s like a piece of my soul has been wandering aimlessly, and has just now been returned to its proper place in the ever-growing anthology of musical moments-in-time of my life. Why does this keep happening to me?! Continue reading Quick Rip: Dead Sara Rocks Me to Goosebumps
“Sea of Life”
Is a wave mere dust
A speck of foam in the tide
Rolling ever on?
this is a song of living
to the uncertainty that futures bring
although it seems silly to praise
our life of low precision
What was and what wasn’t
Never just because, always not quite

Shedding red toxic arrows,
And blood stained “will never be”s. Continue reading Misplaced Missives #192 – Cupid – JG

Water glistens silver-gold
The world is yet hushed
So the news of the Foo Fighters signing on to do another season of Sonic Highways with HBO broke about 2 months ago, which means this is not timely. However, it’s something I’ve been pondering recently since I just saw the Foo Fighters live about a month ago (Dave Grohl guitar throne and all) and binge-watched season one of Sonic Highways.

Last month’s theme was about changing the past, so I figure this month’s should be all about molding the future.
Theme – Future Plans/Long-term goals
Structure – Ode (a poem in which a person expresses a strong feeling of love or respect for someone or something, typically addressing that someone or something)
If you feel like the theme and structure don’t necessarily match this month, you and I are in agreement. However, I want happiness and love and optimism when discussing the soon-to-be, so I’m going to gently nudge us in that direction. *nudge nudge nudge*
Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine. – Nikola Tesla

The road winds ahead
But together we may go
Hold my hand a while
I came upon you
Along this walk of mine. Continue reading For R.L. – SD
