Literature
Water and Rock
if i am water than you are the rock around which i flow
turning you a little more like me
and turning me a little more like you
let me smooth your rough edges
and let yourself make me just those few molecules rougher
let us change each other because
you are unchanging and i am ever flowing
you need a little movement and i lack a foundation
we have something for each other and,
if you're not afraid to get a little wet,
we can give each other that something.
But this is all only an 'if',
and so only if,
I am water and you are rock,
will you drop yourself into me,
so we can change each other?

Literature
foreigner
I come from two countries whose history is written in the tongues of foreigners,
the victors are not the ones who were there first but the ones who left us desperate.
Desperate to remember the times that came before but unable to forget what happened,
occupation and colonization leaving their marks while the foreigners settled in one country and abandoned the other.
Neither lack culture, but I do.
My history and bloodline tie me to thousands of islands under the name of a single country, while my life has been lived in one of the largest landmasses under the name of another.
I know the story of one, and it is a story of separating children from their families, sectioning off land for the First Nations and occupying the rest. I am but an occupant, a citizen who feels like a trespasser because the land on which my house was built was not owned by the ones who built here. And this is but half of the story I feel I should know.
I know so little of the stories about the islands, about the o

Literature
labyrinth
i lose my words to find them
seeking meaning in these fragments of phrases
looking for clarity in the vagueness
I'll ramble till I reach the end because
my thoughts are incomplete and still deciding
on which turn of phrase is right or left
myself in a circle to chase the tail end
of a trailing thought thinking that running
faster instead of smarter
will lead me to myself again.
Leaving that to interpretation which ought to be said clearly,
i am tangled in thorns so no matter
which way I turn
I bleed.
Still turning and twisting, seeking
that way out but
there is no escape
from a circle
just an endless loop of never grasping
what it is I'm chasing.

I've been doing art since about 2005. I have tried almost every visual medium. Now I am into organic things and Abstract Realism. I like painting, charcoal, and pastel.
Interests
I don't particular care for the idea of a bucket list. It implies your life is missing something and I do not feel this way. For example, if I never visit Europe or China that doesn't mean i'm pining away here. If I find the time, money, and interest, I'll go there. Otherwise, I will assume my life has another path. I experience what I have in front of me. Now that said, I propose this exercise. Make a bucket list consisting of the top 10 things you will NOT do. To me, this is way more fun anyway and entirely plausible.

Top Ten things I would NOT put on my bucket list.

1. Flying an ultra light

2. Base jumping

3. Belly flops in a chlorine pool without a nose plug

4. Bungee jumping

5. Bear wrestling

6. Alligator wrestling

7. Dwarf wrestling

8. Hot dog eating contest

9. Eat soup with fish heads in it

10. Meeting Donald Trump

Now it's your turn. What is your list of NOTs. :)

For years King's relatives kept a stranglehold on MLK's public recordings because they wanted to extract value from it. So much of his legacy has been hidden because of this. Here I found a recording of an important speech of his on YouTube. This man was a rare bird. A great freedom fighter. "Don't let anybody make you feel that you are nobody."

Very sorry to hear of this loss.
I lost my brother at 27 years of age too.
Reminds me of the pain that caused for my sister and I.
