On Living

On Living

Sometimes you can’t get enough of it; sometimes it can’t get enough of you.

Sometimes it hurts like hell; sometimes you know the pleasure will kill you.

Sometimes you lie to preserve the truth; sometimes you tell the truth to preserve a lie.

Sometimes you hope the end never comes; sometimes all you want is for it all to end.

Sometimes you force yourself to believe that everything will be okay; sometimes okay abandons you. Read more

They’ll Dance.

They’ll Dance.

[an excerpt*]

She had never really thought about it before, except under the specific circumstance of riding in Economy Plus on the night flight from Auckland, Auckland, NZ to Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. For it was on this flight that she watched, for the third or fourth time, Ant-Man and the Wasp. The first time, of course, is the most notable version of this movie-going experience. Read more

You, Dance!

You, Dance!

And you can’t put your finger on the impulse, but it’s strong. Whenever you see Paul Rudd dance, as you are well aware, you cannot deny how greatly you enjoy the specific quirkiness of his body’s movement to a beat.

Dance, Ant-Man!

So, there’s this thing that I love, and I just realized, literally in this exact moment, that I do not know quite how to describe my love for it. To begin, do we all know who Paul Rudd is?

And yes, I do realize that I’ve used the word love, and it’s a strong word, and it’s appropriate. Read more

‘Even’ Pt. 7 (The End)

At what point are you no longer living in the now?

This, of course, is a great question. And, of course, every Bromide will have a different answer for you. For instance, I know this … well, never mind because this is not about that.

‘Even’ Pt. 6

How far are you willing to travel to obtain one of your favorite things?

Of course, I will travel any distance to obtain just about anything because traveling great distances is simply not something that’s important to me. The better question might be something like, is there a time to when you’re unwilling to travel? And to that, I’d answer, maybe sometime in the middle to late 20th century in human history. Next.

What color never gets old?

Well, of course, there is rarely a time when I notice color for what it is called, and it’s sort of sad, don’t you think?, that colors have to be defined in some way? Have you ever sat and listened to a color explain itself? Probably not, but if you’re ever greeted by Ladybug, it will translate for you, if you’re ever so lucky. Next. Read more
