waves of grace
waves of misfortune
waves are a constant on the paths we travel
even in calm windless days, there remains a silent ripple of oscillation
descent rides gravity, accent requires effort, tide with flow
dare to reach up and tilt the playing field - 180 degrees
look up, assimilate, and ride the reciprocal highway
light spray and mist will invigorate
the sun always looms to the West
which roads will you travel?
wave as you pass

This is the city, and the city was tepid to my aspirations.
You can give your best shot at something, and find that it was just not enough. The world can chew you up and spit you out like a bad piece of gristle in a BBQ sandwich. I guess I knew that, but never expected to feel such turmoil and defeat. As I stood on Broadway my inner reflections seemed to go back to the start of it all ....
My big break came in 2004 when the New York Times noticed my journalism skills. They were reading my blog and liked what they saw. To my surprise, an offer was made, and I excepted. Within two weeks I had moved to a small loft apartment and begun my incredible journey into the realm of business reporting. Things were good, and I bought 38 new custom tailored suits, each with a custom hat to compliment each jacket. I looked the part, played the part, and WAS the part. Then she walked into my life
She was tall, brown eyed, and quick witted. The moment I layed eyes on her I was smitten, and fully captured in her strong presence and beauty. Charming?? ... that was not a strong enough word for her. She was magnetic, and invigorating. I never knew just how we became a couple. It seemed my suits may have been the biggest draw. Well, that and her desire to be featured in my daily column. You can already guess I did write that article, and it propelled her career in the fashion industry to epic proportions. Magazine covers and television appearances were soon to follow. Slowly she drifted out of my life, and my heart left with her. I was empty, like a spilled glass of whisky on the bar.
The New York Times also noticed my new void of ingenuity, and writers block was now my best friend. My last and final article was called, "Life, who gives a shit" .... I was fired that day.
So, here I am standing on Broadway with a twenty dollar bill and a plane ticket. "Back to Hollydale" for this Speedcat.
Dreams? Now I only have them in my sleep, and even they are interrupted by my heavy snoring.
"Blogging is a lot like a box of litter with clumps" ...
After many years of this posting "things" almost every day, I seem to have learned quite a bit. In fact, when I started I was very much new to even using a computer and ventured out not understanding where or why I was blogging at all. For months my posts were just scribbles in space that nobody found or read. Search engines ignored me, and comments were almost non existent.
Slowly as I met others out there doing the same thing, I found commenting "pals". You know, the classic I comment on your blog ... you comment on mine. This became the new formula. Great system, until you become over-reached and commenting on one hundred plus blogs! Don't get me wrong, I love the communication and reading posts, but sometimes the time it requires is just not in the cards. My blogging bike is now more of an afternoon ride than a Tour de France marathon each week.
The aspect of creating material is also one that I think everyone has toiled with. Honestly, I never really know or plan what will be next. In fact, I simply started typing for this one. Making up crap as I go, to place in my blogging litter box. Soon this will be a buried clump of yadda yadda blah blah blah in the archives. I guess what I have found to be the best part of this blogging litter box is that it is never-ending. You can dig down through layers containing thoughts and memories from months and years past. Sometimes I simply just retreat back and relive moments in time. There lie some of my happiest moments ... some sad moments ... and even moments of massive life change. Of course, as I sift though the box I also find lots of random craps that still stink as bad as they did when first hatched.
