After the End

I was not in shape until a few weeks ago. I'm not even sure how I lost all this weight, whether it was all the running or lack of food… I'm so hungry these days! But then everyone is. I suppose that's the sort of thing you have to put up with at the end of the world. I could put up with the growl in my stomach if I wasn't so worried all the time. I suppose worried is the right word. Everything that's happened has been so horrible that I've gone a bit numb, and even normal things like worry don't seem to make much difference anymore. The world is the way it is, and I must run and hide, or leap and attack, or dodge and kick and scream and

The match felt fragile in my hand. I regarded it carefully, but held it still, knowing that the slightest slip of my fingers in turning it over could snap the slender bit of wood and render it forever impotent. Such a small error, to jeopardize all I had done, all I had come here for. The early death of this match would grant the life of a world, but what a life!

So I don't do journals a lot...

So I don't do journals a lot...

But I decided I might as well write a quick update for all... I uploaded a ton of my more recent poetry. Not a ton of artist's comments, but that's because I figure the words speak for themselves. Same with my visual art. I prefer that people look at whatever I've done and go away with their own reaction, what their first feeling about it was, unaffected by whatever I think. So that's the reason for the quiet. That and the fact that I just don't speak a whole lot. If you want more of my random thoughts in poetry and prose, just visit my blog: http://vienguard.blogspot.com/ As for what's going on in my head for art right now... I've been do

I finally uploaded my artwork for all of you guys to see. Photographs are less trouble to upload, but finally I decided, okay, if my scanner's not big enough, why not just take photos of my work? So I did. Please enjoy. I'll try to keep uploading things as I complete them. But of course, summer's coming, and summer is the lazy time. Still, I shall try to keep it up. The pieces I have uploaded here are done in pencil, colored pencil, oil pastel, scratchboard, and acrylic.

OW, it hurts...

OW, it hurts...

I just got back from a ski trip. I hurt all over. My feet hurt from having boot blisters. My shins hurt from leaning into the boots. My calves hurt from slowing down. My knees hurt from stopping. My thighs hurt from turning. My hips hurt from falling. My back hurts from leaning over. My shoulders hurt from twisting. My arms hurt from getting up. And my head just hurts. I can't move without pain. Standing up or sitting down is a chore. I'm stiff. I'm limping everywhere. But when you feel the air rushing past and the powder spraying and you're flying down the mountain at 25 mph it's worth it. Every bit.
