everywhere but here

You’re going on a cross-country trip. Airplane, train, bus, car, or bike?


first stop..slow

where do you go when the world

seems not in your favor

second stop.. show

where do you go when you need a savior

you can tell he favors, her

third stop…home

Where do you go when your body tired

mind tripping, ego spiking

until the next time you on the tracks.



Is this you as well? Vol 2

“Stop signs for me are a kind of hectic, achey, ‘tired & wired’ feeling. When I push myself I sometimes feel the energy leaking away like sand sliding faster through an hour glass, or a the air from a punctured tire. That’s when the Shoulds start: “I should have the energy to do this, I should meet my commitments, I should know better than to overcommit”. , I’m learning to respond with, “hang on, I SHOULD respect my natural limits, even when chasing my dreams, & other people should respect the boundary of my health & wellbeing”.

there’s more 👀👀

we’re here

who is we?

I’m still trying to find my way


I thought I had it but shit happened

you still stepping right?

I’m over 40 and not the greatest

well shit, not many are. What else?

I want to know love

ok, do you love yourself?



There’s work to do I know

I’m here and I’m never leaving

no question mark needed.

lights up


get in line

greatest show on earth

watch the birth

of the mood, of the moment

don’t mind the lights

it’s the story they tell

I know it well

you me together again

1 year on, 1 year off

it’s time for my heart to go soft

last time I come around

you want to know what I’ve found?

we take pills to heal

we breath to stay alive

we fuck to make babies

or make love, same diff

we stay in relationships

we are inauthentic to be liked

we know wrong but do it anyway
