• Travis commented on the post, harness 6 years, 11 months ago

    To harness a day… to grapple it, to take it by it’s head and yank it towards you into a headlock, that’s a goal of mine from here on out. I sincerely feel it catching up with me: wasting days doing what might […]

  • Travis commented on the post, reporter 7 years ago

    The reporter stood over him, out of breath, while the rain smacked against the plastic hood of his parka. After two and a half years, she’d found him, huddled in the dark under the rain like a frightened cat. She […]

  • Travis commented on the post, disregard 7 years, 1 month ago

    I just read Oh The Places You’ll Go. . . And I feel as if I’ve meditated. To see “disregard” come up is somewhat serendipitous, because I’ve done what I’d kinda swore off that I’d never do, which is have a New […]

  • Travis commented on the post, entrée 7 years, 1 month ago

    I want to write a story here about how entrées come at a nice dinner and there’s been a bit of a commotion and I can’t believe I’ve stayed, or they’ve stayed, or I’m waiting to deliver news about leaving the […]

  • Travis commented on the post, earring 7 years, 2 months ago

    He came back with a necklace made of what looked like organized but jagged quartz that’d scratch a woman’s chest and throat, a slender sliver watch that took more than a few moments to unclasp, and a multitude of […]

  • Travis commented on the post, desk 7 years, 2 months ago

    Everytime I sit at my desk and hope to write something eloquent or profound or just something lucid with a quasi-legitimate storyline and a character that one can buy into, I end up sounding like a Don Draper […]

  • Travis commented on the post, bitten 7 years, 2 months ago

    Once bitten, twice shy. Never really got that saying.

    I envision it meaning something like “fool me once, shame on you…fool me twice, shame on me” or whatever. Now THAT I can identify with, especially with […]

  • Travis commented on the post, heartache 7 years, 2 months ago

    Wow…heartache. We’re really pullin’ for the “emo” crowd here on this one.

    So let’s dilute the overt amount of what’s bound to be poured on and get to the crux of what we should be going for here: what it […]

  • Travis commented on the post, attendant 7 years, 2 months ago

    Flight attendants aren’t what they used to be, and I’m sure everyone’s going to talk about that on here, so in an effort to be novel, I’m gonna pour one out for the little guy…
    The gas station attendant, […]

  • Travis commented on the post, drifting 7 years, 2 months ago

    I just watched Martha Marcy May Marlene, and one of the scenes, near the end, where she’s treading water behind her sister’s house. . . the lake or river or whatever body of water she was in not only looked black, […]

  • Travis commented on the post, residue 7 years, 2 months ago

    Not usually a disgusting word, but has some disgusting connotations.

    All I can think of is puddles. Rain left over from the night before, a quasi-holographic collection of oil remnants in a parking lot that […]

  • Travis commented on the post, fixed 7 years, 2 months ago

    Whew, this is a good one.

    I yearn to be fixed in regards to relationships, the future and its ambiguity, my shoulder, my debt that I don’t really feel yet and don’t like that I don’t feel it. . .

    I’m also […]

  • Travis commented on the post, pattern 7 years, 3 months ago

    I was just thinking about getting into a zone, getting into a mode that everything lines up right and the outskirts blur. A chí or some sort of “being one with whatever” type of vibe, where you’re on it and […]

  • Travis commented on the post, professional 7 years, 3 months ago

    I’m not a professional by any means, at anything. I think it’s something like wisdom, where you can’t say that you have wisdom or that you’re a professional unless you’ve been dubbed as such by someone else. And I […]

  • Travis commented on the post, lantern 7 years, 3 months ago

    I always liked the forest green oil lantern that hung from the overhanging part of the roof of my parent’s house. I rarely recall it being lit, but it was vintage and I always thought that kinda stuff was […]

  • Travis commented on the post, gallery 7 years, 3 months ago

    I just read a blurb about a guy, a writer, who was in an art gallery that had tapestries depicting Jesus and The Last Supper and a bunch of other scenes that the big guy went through before he got…ya know. […]

  • Travis commented on the post, curse 7 years, 3 months ago

    If there’s such a thing as being cursed, I can’t buy into the idea that it’s some type of thing that’s unforgivable or irreversible. To be sent down a dreary path for the remainder of your days isn’t kosher, in my […]

  • Travis commented on the post, clue 7 years, 4 months ago

    Currently watching Wait After Dark with Audrey Hepburn, and this film is something of an anomaly. It’s brilliantly done, and the clues, the way that things are left about and rearranged, then end up playing out… […]

  • Travis commented on the post, adopt 7 years, 4 months ago

    I adopt a multitude of ideas. To adopt only one is obviously holding yourself back from where you both should and could be.

    Without adopting more and more, taking in as much as you can, you can’t ADAPT. . . […]

  • Travis commented on the post, maroon 7 years, 11 months ago

    I have a connection to Maroon 5 with a girl that began at least 8 years ago. I ended up dating her for a little bit, where we fell in and out of what we thought was special. It was, but there’s a part of me that wishes we hadn’t, because now that song, that […]
