    I was gazing into the bottom of the pool hoping to catch a glimpse of something. What? I’m not so sure but it was supposed to wake me up, but I was still sleeping.

  • vince commented on the post, lofty 4 years, 8 months ago

    IT was a lofty aspiration to say the least but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth trying. I mean who’s to say what’s worth anything at all? I couldn’t tell you for sure. But I do know a little discouragement like that is certainly not enough to dissuade me.

    When I was a kid I wanted to be a turtle or maybe just have a pet turtle. They are terribly interesting creatures. I love the dichotomy of there slow existence on land and the dynamic life they live in the sea. People seem to forget that. All they know them for is their speed, of lack thereof.

  • vince commented on the post, smoking 4 years, 9 months ago

    I never really liked smoking. I did it for one stint when I was in college freshman year just to fit in. It never really bothered me when other people did it either. This time was different though, as he put that cigarette up to his lips I couldn’t help but want to smack it right out of his mouth.

  • vince commented on the post, coarse 4 years, 9 months ago

    I remember her hands. They always seemed so coarse to me. I guess that was the case with farm work. People don’t understand all of what it takes. I didn’t really get it either but I didn’t mind learning, it was nice just having something to hold.

    I will never forget the time my sister misspelled bigotry in the finals at her middle school spelling bee. I had never heard the word but I could tell by the look in her eyes she didn’t know how to spell it herself. B-I-G-O-T-R-E-E

    When we started looking at those swatches of paint for the new apartment it finally felt like this was all becoming real. Eggshell? or dandelion? it didn’t matter to me I just wanted to get on with my life.

  • vince commented on the post, sly 4 years, 10 months ago

    She was a sly girl, but not in the way you would expect. Many people called her sly like a fox but I new that wasn’t entirely accurate. She was sly like something else, like that little kid I met at my nephews birthday party. “What is your name?” He asked me. “Steven” I told him. “But how do you know?”

    She was sly like that kid.

  • vince commented on the post, bonfire 4 years, 11 months ago

    I remember when we were kids and we used to have bonfires all of the time. Summer afternoons when the thickets needed to be trimmed, and they became dry in the sun. So we burned them. This was in the country but most of my friends, they lived in the suburbs, and what they called a bonfire was merely a campfire. These scorchers bruned through the…[Read more]

    He seemed well educated but it was to early to tell. Maybe it was just the glasses, that sort of thing always fools me into thinking that someone is smarter than they actually are. Nevertheless, he certainly used a lot of big words.

  • vince commented on the post, artwork 4 years, 11 months ago

    Artwork is an interesting concept. Some people think modern art is a sham. I disagree, once something is named art it can be art. That’s the truth. It won’t be good, there is no gaurantee of that, but it will be art.

  • vince commented on the post, mountainous 4 years, 11 months ago

    For many years I have heard that Northern Spain has the most beautiful mountains. I don’t know if that’s true anymore. I still haven’t been to Spain, per-say, but in my mind there is no way they can compare to the Sierra Nevada’s.

  • vince commented on the post, interested 5 years ago

    I was so interested to hear how her story ended. Still I never wanted it to come to a close. I had put too much into it for that hole in my life to be left completely open. I suppose everything has to end. That’s just the way it is.

    I’m sorry, I know that this apology is a bit belated” He said.

    “Really, it’s fine”

    “You know that it’s not, I just didn’t know what to say.”

    I remember the playground at my elementary school. The best part were these tire pyramids, you could climb inside them and pretend you were anywhere. Sometimes I would sit inside and pretend nothing was wrong.

    Progressive.

    I was harmed by my own memories. They distorted my mind in a way I couldn’t recall. People told me it couldn’t be done but I knew that I could prove them wrong.

  • vince commented on the post, coma 5 years, 4 months ago

    I was in a coma for what felt like years
    sipping on corgans soma
    for what felt like a mirror

    I should have known better than to try and fight it
    but I couldn’t stand up

  • vince commented on the post, derailed 5 years, 4 months ago

    Everythings was derailed – after she told the truth
    that comment hit like a comet blowing down our youth
    you could say that she was crazy
    you could say she was a fool
    but the echo in the background made us think that she was cool.
