Are You Performing or Being?

Have you ever been put in a situation to see people who value you for what you do, not who you are? Close friends, acquaintances, family – all enamored with aspects of your talents or art but uninterested in you as a person. Thoughts, dreams, beliefs, principles… irrelevant as long as you can perform. How [...]

The Search

Walking through familiar crossings searching for a path I strayed from long ago. Destiny they called it, but what do they know? For they have risked nothing but words at its mystery while ensconced in their refuge. The comfort once felt is now shrouded in fear, disguised as ambiguity to the watchful as darkness envelops [...]

8-bit Glory Days

Once upon a time there was this magical place in history.  People called it “the Eighties.”  What made it magical you ask?  Colors were bright, hair was big, and games were 8-bit. At the time, I didn’t know that I was living in what would become the golden age of videogames.  I don’t think any [...]
