Life

Things happen in life. Let me rephrase that: things happen in life both gradually and all at once. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on here; is been a long time since I’ve really had time (I still don’t, really). There was some combination of events, circumstances, and interactions that struck a note deep in my mind… It was like hearing a melody you have not heard since childhood; like the smell that haunts your memory of one of your old haunts; it was like seeing an old picture, and remembering everything like it happened today… So, without further ado, here is a poem that tells the truth:

A Note was Struck 

A note was struck
Deep in my heart:
A beautiful sound;
A distant spark.

The note rang forth
In the depths of my mind,
Shaking the dust
Off my dusty old rhymes.

The gears did start
Their clunking again;
Each cog a part
That will portend.

Belts and pulleys
All spin and race
As ash and steam
Elucidate.

A pipe explodes!
The metal grates!
What once was cold
Is now ablaze!

No stopping now,
This steampunk mind;
The engine growls
With life and light.

Idley it sat
For far too long;
Cranked up at
The tune of a song!

A smell, a taste,
A sound and place:
Melody-laced
Life and faith!

With Christ in front,
Though danger’s about,
The ride is rough,
But faith resounds.

A Blip on the Radar

I’m not dead! My energies have simply been focused elsewhere. I’m in my last semester of college, working part-time, and leading a Bible study—all of which demand an enormous amount of time! Still, things are going well. I’ll try to post some riddles or poems soon. I’ve been needing to get my creative juices flowing for some time now.

Hey everyone. So it’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog. What can I say? Life happens. I have decided that there are priorities in my life that make a 365 project impractical. I have learned for next time though. I also have an idea for what I want to do for next time.

As for my photography, even that has been lacking. I’m going to try to get things posted, but I’m doing a half-marathon, along with working full time, and just general business is all going to limit my time.

Gotta focus on the task at hand, like a bumblebee! Took this one out in the garden earlier.

Hey, so I just wanted to catch people up on what all the little things are about on this blog.

I’ve just added a “Gallery” page up at the top on the menu bar. That has most of the pictures available for you to look at, as well as any extras I might decide to put up.

There are two main “Adventure” type posts I like to put on here, most of the time they fall into both of these categories though: photo-ventures and word-ventures.

Photo-ventures have a photo of some sort, of something related to an adventure. A word-venture is a story from my life; I usually stylize/embellish/theatricalize these stories.  A Word-venture may make a photo fall under both photo and word-venture categories.

I try to update this blog at least twice a week, if not more. If I miss too many days (in your opinion), shoot me a message from the “About” page. There you can also read a little more about who I am and why I made this blog.
