Shaped like an egg with pretzels for legs, Gary is built to duel with The Shadow. Easy work for such a well-rounded fellow. But stick 'im in the light and he'll give you a fright by telling your truth straight to your face. Gary's all garters and lace, but he... Continue reading

Restrictions are of our own design. Build a firm foundation. Everything else is faerie dust. Glimmer & Shimmer & Flicker & Flow. The only way to reach the clouds is to allow unhealthy structures to crumble. Victory is upheaval. Show me the prize hidden under the rubble. Patience & Prudence.... Continue reading

What is it you need to show to the world? What's the one thing you want me to know about you? How can you tell your story without it being a masterfully manipulated collection of photographs on Insty-Sham? Here's what Phyllida wants us to know about her: I am the... Continue reading

Previously... Another bazaar season has blown in from the north for Miss Darla T. Varney. She spins her craft throughout the year to delight passersby down at the old Prairie View Drive-In Swap Meet. She attaches a price to all her creations; a sum too steep to pay according to... Continue reading

Not a proper Year-In-Review this. Not even going to speculate on what's in store for 2019. Just a handful of things that happened: * I rescued a withered Philodendron scandens tucked amongst boxes of Tampax stacked on a table of markdowns at Walmart. I christened the plant Luz. * Learned... Continue reading

jennie wrenn, my very best friend, and a profligate's definition of an angelic vision, is the girl i love the most. blessings pour from her lips like incautious kismet as my feather queen is perched upon her bed of sleights. Don't listen to anyone right now. Your senses are heightened... Continue reading

The Universe is jabbing at you with a golden spork. It is basically saying stop listening to advice from the sidewalk crawlers and witless brawlers. The spork's staccato poke and prick is Morse for "you called this bitch correctly and still said yes." Knocked backwards a couple years you were,... Continue reading

There is always someone looking at the watcher who's taking notes from the back of the class about who in the stuffy room is most likely to get away with murder. The most likely candidate is the teammate who will have your back during good times and bad with the... Continue reading

O.k., Masters-in-Training: If the last 10 years have been easy for you, you must have done The Work over prior lifetimes. If yes/no: Has something happened to you in the past 30 to 45 days that slapped ya upside the head (didn't see it comin', didn't see it comin') and... Continue reading

So maybe I had this all wrong. Maybe I’m not the control freak I always thought I was. I keep showing up, yeah? If I weren’t willingly riding the Wave of Meh, I’d be bailing on you every chance I could. Granted, I’m not creating any legacy by overstaying my... Continue reading

gary knows his woes reach down to his toes toes located somewhere beneath his nose thoughts pierce the heart unopposed as gary ruminates in repose lost in the throes of cici's reproach apologies caught in the throat as love leaves us to whinge about romantic anecdotes Continue reading

To be present, truly in the moment, involves the people, places and things within reach. What is beyond one's range of vision is of no concern (it isn't even real, anyway.) "Well, you won't have to listen to that again." "Thank gawd." "Pretty much the problem though, yeah?" ... crickets... Continue reading

My core ought to feel like it's pierced by arrows each time you are near. In your eyes I see a forgotten life and feel the vague familiarity of a neighborhood in which I once lived. We are quivering heaps of pent up emotions which we mistake for attraction; desire.... Continue reading

Previously... Darla on the mountaintop, proclaiming to the four winds, with a silver chalice in her left hand and a finely-wrought blade of steel in the right: Both of these accessories are in play as they pertain to my energy and destiny. It is almost as though we are not... Continue reading

You told me you live in your own world. "Don't place too much trust in me." You forgot what we talked about a month ago. Our conversation was important. It had to do with self-awareness and the color I'd recently painted the walls of my study. "Forgetfulness means I never... Continue reading

The world was carved by the right hand of the pagliacci. Reality is as entertaining as one's daydreams, and as tangible as the gash you stanch with little chance of it becoming a scar. We all weep at the sight of a well-rehearsed faux pas. Perseverance is the best way... Continue reading

You're better off finding a trusted civilian who'll listen to your (what usually are very amusing) existential crises, and maintaining a lifestyle where your body and mind are allowed to perform at peak proficiency. Sorry, I hope that didn't come out sounding all preachily privileged because, you know: You are... Continue reading
