cyclical

What goes around comes around. Everything works in cycles.

frown

Frown is such an unattractive word. I’m tempted to rhyme it, but I loathe cliche`s.

sweep

The broom. The team. The craze. The chore I dare not do.

worldly

I like to consider myself educated and worldly. In reality, I’ve only visited one country outside of the USA. How worldly could I possibly be?

furious

I was a very angry kid. I had my reasons to be furious, but I’m glad I learned to let go.

shepherd

Do people still become shepherds? Is that a viable career path? Are there benefits? And what is the proper term for that question-mark hooked staff they all have in the old illustrations? Never-mind, I don’t even care.

automatic

Roughly 6 weeks ago I walked in to a record store in the new town where I live. I was stoked to find a copy of Jesus ans Mary Chain’s “Automatic” on vinyl.
“And the way I feel tonight, I could die and I wouldn’t mind…”

awakening

Not long ago everything felt so stale. It’s all new again. An awakening of sorts.

Creature comforts
comfort food
the comfy chair

If you want to grow you must find yourself in uncomfortable situations.

radical

Don’t do anything radical. Like fall in love, or stand up for yourself, or speak out against injustice when you see it, or educate yourself for reasons other than monetary gain, or do the right thing even when it’s an unpopular idea. Just keep your head down and try to blend in.

relate

Relate. I know what it means, but sometimes I like to re-imagine words. Relate, for example looks like the prefix “re” attached to the root “late”.
Instead of saying, “Ms. Smith you are tardy again.” One could simply say “You’re relate.”

dull

People who claim to be bored are often the dullest individuals I know.

warfare

chemical
psychological
sexual
class
cyber
biological

I can think nothing of worth that humankind has not co-opted, perverted, or weaponized in the name of warfare.
Think of the wondrous things we might have created with all the time, energy and resources devoted to war.

compassion

Compassion is one of my favorite words. It’s also one of my favorite traits in others.

spring

A Slinky is just a really ineffective spring.

conviction

Even if you have no clue what you’re doing, you can usually get away with as long as you act and speak with conviction. Make mistakes with authority and few people will realize them for what they are.

failed

Oh the flood of images and instances that rush through my mind when I see this word. I’ve failed at many things in my life, but I believe I’m a better man for it. failure has shaped who I’ve become, but it does not describe me.

history

I moved to the desert to study history, perhaps to become a history teacher. Id din’t shake out like that. Now I’m moving to the city to become a librarian. You never know where your path will lead.

predict

I predict I will write something intensely personal then decide not to share it, delete the entire post, and replace it with something trite. Damn I’m good.

belief

Belief. Bee leaf. Get away from that tree or you’ll be stung. Yule beast tongue. Tongue-tied, hog-tied, red tide. Believe in yourself, all others must pay cash.

wonder

I sometimes stop and stare at you, and smile to myself. Plenty of road behind us yet even more ahead. I know how we got here but I still think you’re a wonder .

smile

I love cheese, but I hate that I’m expected to say “cheese” when someone wants to take my photograph. If you want me to smile, just ask.

train

Waiting on a train. Train in Vain. “You said you loved me, and that’s a fact”. I do hope Dudley gets Penelope off the tracks before the train makes a bloody mess of her. Oh, who am I trying to kid. I’d love to see sorry excuse for a woman get bisected once and for all, but I think I’d prefer if it happened in the saw-mill. heh

station

train. radio. status. It is my station in life to operate a pirate radio station from the confines of the dilapidated old railway station just outside of town. I think I can, I think I can…Arrgh.

embraced

I like the idea of embracing a new concept or ideology, but when it comes to human contact I prefer warmer words and phrases such as held closely, or hugged. I’d much rather be hugged than embraced.

beloved

Dearly beloved, immortal beloved… it’s amazing how much pop-culture I have associated with this word in my brain. I’m seeing Beethoven and Prince as the wedding band for every cheesy matrimony scene stored in my cluttered little mind.

funeral

Turn that frown upside-down! Come on down to Good-Time Charlie’s Pizzeria, Massage Parlor (be sure ask about the “good-time special”), and Funerary Services, where we put the FUN in FUNeral.

rise

Rise and shine. Rise above. robot uprising. I for one welcome our refreshingly resistant robot overlords. Although, my favorite apocalypse scenarios all involve zombies. Robots vs. zombies, Fight!

teacher

education majors, you know, the ones who are trying to become teachers, are some of the worst students on campus. Few of them enjoy reading, and almost none of them pay attention when you try to teach them something new. They have no love of learning. WTF?

We should just toss the whole “prison system, jr.” ,model out the window and figure out a way to actually teach kids, rather than incarcerate them and test them to death.
Okay, I went over minute a bit there…

corner

Little-Jack sat in one. Satin won. Dog-eared, doll-geared. Dahl and naan. Mmmm. Watch where you stick that thumb, Jack.
