About me

I’m a middle aged white boy with a past, present, and god willing a future. I’ve lived hard and fast most my life and now it seems I’m tired. I work for a living and play on the weekends. I enjoy Nascar, beer, BBQ, and Bourbon. I love punk rock, Rip Hop, and Reggae music and I don’t do much without them. I enjoy tattoos, the bar scene, and my night life in general (though it’s hard on me sometimes). I try not to cause problems for anyone and I hate drama. Basically I just want to take care of my responsibilities and have a good time along the way. I guess you could say I’m a fairly simple guy.

As for writing, my interest began in late 2008-early 2009 because I never really cared much for shrinks or head doctors. Since then I like to think I’ve grown as a writer, but like most things we embark on I know I will forever be a student of literature. Now, I would love to categorize my writing style for you, throw out words like fixed form and free verse, but I gave that up almost immediately. Instead, I just call it life poetry and tag it as spoken-word leaving the rest up to you. I sincerely hope you enjoy what you find here.

Current Residence: Texas

...I say that because as much as I try to get here, I just end up going in the opposite direction. And so I’m snowed under by a mountain of deviations that I really don’t want to miss, but you know how it is. In any case, if you’d like to bring something to my attention, I’d be happy to take a look.

As for the real world, I’m sure you’ve all guessed, I’ve been extremely preoccupied by the very thing that often draws us here; life. I won’t weigh you down with the details, but let’s just say I’m rediscovering the new and recovering from the old. And I still have to dodge a hurricane or two as the days pass, but it’ll all clear up soon enough. 

I hope this finds you all
in a great place,
with the sun on your back,
good company by your side,
and a smile on your face.

Hey amigo. Thanks for the fave. What's up with you? Still raising sand everywhere you go? I kinda hope you are. I always think about you like this wild, untamed, beauty that has to go incognito for work. Yes, I know how that sounded. Just go with it. Anyway, thanks for the fave.

You're welcome, Calleigh. It was my pleasure. Actually I've been trying not to raise much sand these days, just keeping a low profile while I sort out a few things. Wild and untamed may describe me to some extent, but personal limits and heavy responsibilities have slowed me down some. As for work; I think most of us have to put on a face for that, gotta keep the bill man away you know ;)

Well then, in my head, you will be this wild, untamed beauty in the sunshine, wind on your face, head tilted back, smile on your face, just enjoyin' life. I forgot that there'd be a drink in your hand, lots of friends and family who love you (I'd have to be in that crowd somewhere), favorite jeans and tshirt, just relaxin' and havin' fun. Good music, good food, lots of happy.

Wow. That's a great comment. Almost sounds like a dream rather than a way of life, but that is the way I try to flow and I'm usually pretty successful at it, just got someone jamming me up at the moment, but that will come to an end soon (I hope). And then you'll have to point yourself out in the crowd. Otherwise I may miss you entirely and that would be a shame.
