    The grey skies, with a lone stop sign as she looked up. It towers as the red pushes higher.

  • daniel commented on the post, mezcal 3 years, 5 months ago

    Young Guns! Is that what the bottle is? Mezcal and the Rough Riders, deciding the last hours before the storm comes down on them? The Blackbird Trail sounds so far away.

  • daniel commented on the post, cult 3 years, 5 months ago

    If by group, you mean the band of outsiders, standing in the middle of the road, ready to take on the giant machine; let this cult go itself.

  • daniel commented on the post, transform 3 years, 5 months ago

    This team is getting to be more of a culture monster, transform and adapt instead of being negative and reactive. Continue to build and make this place shine like delicious demons.

  • daniel commented on the post, chaos 3 years, 5 months ago

    Practice chaos to learn control, something learned early in lifting. Same can be applied to life as many people learn the rules to break them, and then put the pieces back to keep order.

  • daniel commented on the post, undone 3 years, 5 months ago

    Duran Duran Come Undone makes me think of London, England, back in the mid-2000s. The song is okay. Still, it’s England.

  • daniel commented on the post, returned 6 years, 7 months ago

    I have returned to the original place, where I know things get done, I’m always evolving. Need to stay creative, need to move forward, need to be alive.

  • daniel commented on the post, tires 7 years, 11 months ago

    When the treads wear down and a confirmation from a penny test, my 19×8.5 tires do need replacement.

  • daniel commented on the post, assisted 8 years, 3 months ago

    My hands hurt.
    Assisted one-arm pull ups and one-arm kettlebell snatches take their toll.
    Hand care, pumice callusses, and blanket with lotion.

  • daniel commented on the post, chalkboard 8 years, 4 months ago

    My chalkboard was dusty and green. Mrs. Johns used to write on it a lot. White, powder clinging to her skirt. A white ring around my arm when she grabbed me.

  • daniel commented on the post, pretzel 8 years, 5 months ago

    You don’t listen to your body, leave yourself sitting there. Stillness is the hurt. Pretzel, static, stopped moving.

  • daniel commented on the post, domestic 8 years, 5 months ago

    Is it cold?
    The morning air, crisp. The sun is hiding. I hear ‘Roads’ in my earphones, but not the car that runs the stop sign. Is this song the domestic version?

  • daniel commented on the post, bones 8 years, 5 months ago

    Fragile, like paper as they move. I think movement without purpose is being static. I think it empty, a dry shell and dull bones.

  • daniel commented on the post, dinosaur 8 years, 5 months ago

    The blue dinosaur, riding down Elm Street. Trees, orange leaves scattering. I put my hand out the window because you told me to do it.

  • daniel commented on the post, clover 8 years, 5 months ago

    I remember that night, with chills and fog. Your hands were cold, but Clover was still in our thoughts. Hey.

  • daniel commented on the post, acoustic 8 years, 6 months ago

    A boy, an acoustic guitar, his heart on his sleeve. That is his Dashboard Confessional.

  • daniel commented on the post, plans 8 years, 6 months ago

    Plans are meant to make things happen in a straight line. Love is meant to push and pull, move up and down.

  • daniel commented on the post, whole 8 years, 7 months ago

    Taking partials, small steps to a hand hold. Anything as a whole, I won’t be able to handle it.

  • daniel commented on the post, shape 8 years, 7 months ago

    Soft, skin like angelfood cake. Hands making a heart shape.

  • daniel commented on the post, wondered 8 years, 7 months ago

    I wondered if you would put your hand in the fire because I asked you to do it.
