This is one of my all-time favorite images. Taken from the window of my studio apartment on the north end of the Venice Beach boardwalk. I guess a jumping dolphin would have been a nice touch... Loved that place and the energy and the people! Wow... Wave... Oceans and Venice came to mind. Just a little thought train experience.
Enough memory lane for the moment. The wave I'm thinking about in the present moment is an interesting and almost guilt inducing continued giddy - jubilant - elated - joyousness - blissful feeling. I say almost guilt inducing because my hither to habitual response to MANY things was guilt... like I don't deserve to just feel fucking good... most of the time. The guilt creeps up on me like thoughts of alcohol or tobacco used to and I just turn the faucet off when I become aware of them. NICE!!
Mark this day 11-13-15 - three consecutive odd numbers make up the date only six times in a century. 11/13/15 marks the end of this parade of Odd Days which began with 1/3/5. The previous stretch of dates like this started with 1/3/1905. I love odd dates and numerology... thus my sober date 04-14-14. So I think I'll quit guilt today. I've been practicing already for a month or so. Done! No relapsing now! =) Maybe I'll give up fear on the next special date... June 16, 2016... just thinkin'.

Did that make you feel better?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
