Excerpt from novella #1

  1. The Great Inconvenience –

 

An evanescent wave appealing to a once known comfort

How quickly it reveals the underbelly of a monster

As if it were pressured, clasping heavily upon my chest

Assuming it’s primitive form, it drifts indefinitely

Revealing itself in a raw, lucid and unmerciful design

 

Here it began as if it were berthed a millennia ago

Anchored deep in the refuge of my psyche

I have tried to find it in a time of need

Only to (have it) manifest in a time of great inconvenience

I hardly look anymore

 

My innermost self

My inability to heed the warning

The possibility of freedom

The torment of regret

Forever inhabited

Painstakingly present

2015 year in review

My favorite [rock, pop] records of 2015 – A strange year for my musical endeavors and this list is a clear reflection of that. In 2015 I stopped DJing and I picked up the guitar again. I began writing for a 3-piece punkish-type ensemble that I had trouble arranging anything intelligible for-if I am being honest with myself. Then I decided to do what I know best and got back on the drums to help form another band, something I have not done in 15 years. I’m back and it’s fun.
