10. Recycling Counter Cultures
I played this game for a long time, and I’m trying to edge off of it. I wrote Ginsberg-esque poems that were poor imitations. The Beats have nearly vanished, and yes, they are amazing writers, but their voice is not that of today, their America has withered, it is...Read more of this blog post »

This post has nothing to do with writing. Well, at the moment it doesn’t, maybe toward the end I’ll throw in an anecdote and it’ll be witty and clever, and I’ll look back on this opening and wonder why I didn’t think of it earlier. Or I’ll mention I’m an author and feel good about dropping it in....Read more of this blog post »

I felt that God wanted me to end the relationship, and since I (capital I) did the hard work of ending the relationship, I felt that I deserved to be married and happy before he was. But yo...Read more of this blog post »
