You don’t know until you try. (a writing exercise.)

(For this exercise I’m writing from the perspective of someone who has to overcome an insecurity.) It had started on his elbows. then it moved to his knees, and then to his back, forehead and eyes. It was called “Psoriasis”. It’s when the immune system attacks itself and the skin responds by over producing skin…

Chashu Gu Ramen

Had Ramen today and it looked so good I had to take a picture. I admit, I’m a bit of a foodie thanks to my girlfriend. I’ve even made a couple of dollars selling my food pics on Eyeem.com. I usually use this perspective because I think it simulates a persons view when sitting at…

Freedom

California legalized recreational cannabis but for those of us with pain management issues we’ve been using it legally for years. It’s nice to see progression.

I have to be careful with what I put up. Since the year started I’ve been trying to write or take pictures almost every day as if it’s now my job to produce content daily. Which it isn’t. And I haven’t. But I still feel like I should be. Why? I don’t like feeling this…

Breakfast (writing exercise – no names)

(challenged myself to write a scene without using any names and to not use gender specific terminology for the server) He sat across from her as they both sat for breakfast. She was craving pozoleĀ  so they went to their favorite Mexican place to eat. A little place they had found years ago that made…
