Misplaced Missives #83 – Plastic Confessions

Heartfelt confession of crime so sinful,
God turns away in disgust.
Whose only victim: the criminal,
Would be better off if they never trust
Another enough to voice the words of guilt.
Words sure to be met with hatred built
On lies; despised because of natural inclination. Continue reading Misplaced Missives #83 – Plastic Confessions

Just Like The Stars – JG

Sometimes, when out late at night, I stare straight up into the sky – The bass heavy music wired directly into my ears momentarily receding, no longer providing its intended distraction from thinking, from being, from feeling. I look up beyond the ambient light. Beyond what man has built, to what has always been, but won’t always be. Sometimes it feels like I’m holding on to something already gone, but I know I’m wrong.

Just like the stars above,
this something was never in my grasp.
Just like the stars, shining in the now,
but really only from the past. Continue reading Just Like The Stars – JG

San Francisco Part II: Dirt Trails and a Wedding Gown

Here’s part 2 of my San Francisco trip. And it didn’t take over a year!!!

Racontouring

Part II of my trip to San Francisco is here… and it didn’t take nearly two years to finish! Although it did take me longer than a week… but still!

My first visit to the Pacific Ocean. My first visit to the Pacific Ocean.

The wedding was to take place on Saturday evening, our second full day in San Francisco. We decided to stay north of the Bay in the morning to cut down on travel time, and explore the shore of Marin County. I really don’t remember which part of the state parks we drove through, but it was fantastic. We found a small parking lot somewhere along route 1 and trekked down a dirt path through colorful scrub to a small cove on the ocean.

Hiking down the hill towards the ocean. Hiking down the hill towards the ocean.

The vegetation reminded me of the scrub in Dartmoor, England, but of course the climate is much dryer. The vegetation reminded me of the scrub in Dartmoor, England, but of course the climate is much dryer.

I had to climb the rocks, obviously. I had to climb the…

June’s Theme – From Head Banging To Gentle Swaying – JG

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what inspires me and it seems like the answer is only found in things out of my control: an extreme situation, someone else’s provocation, death, unexpected disaster. Thus, I am now on the lookout, or in this case listen out, for material that moves me, without uprooting my entire emotional wellbeing. Music has been a popular muse for so many writers, why not make her this month’s theme: Continue reading June’s Theme – From Head Banging To Gentle Swaying – JG

Rock Song – Speeding Toward Nothing – JG

The continuous loop, where I know every turn,
Leaning inward at the slight curve,
All familiar, all easy, it’s all beginning to blur
Lap after lap of routine and automatic responses.
Trapped in the rut of this orbit –
Circling stability and comfort.
Too scared to put in the effort
To break free and be more. Continue reading Rock Song – Speeding Toward Nothing – JG
