Life Underground

Life Underground

Here is a short story I was originally going to shop around to small presses but I figured I would get a better response releasing it here, directly to people that follow me.  Hope you enjoy it.

He had been lost underground for days.  The darkness was uncomfortable at first but he had grown accustomed to it.  It was the sound that was driving him closer and closer to the cliff.  Darkness was absence, sound meant something was coming for him.

That hum.  Distant, always distant but he could swear it was getting closer.  Maybe his ears were becoming more sensitive, making up for the lack of light, but he was sure the noise was getting closer.  Like a thousands voices whispering at once it drifted through the tunnels. Continue reading →

Finding a Reason

Finding a Reason

Finding a reason for what I do is probably the most difficult thing for me.  Difficult because the reasons are not always something easily visible, or even things I think of beforehand.  Difficult because I often forget (or lose sight of) the reason I’m doing something.  I have a lot of things that I take on, different projects and ideas and hobbies I pursue.  Sometimes I get lost in the weeds and end up unable to do anything, sometimes I forget the reason I do anything.  Sometimes it all falls apart and I forget what’s important.

Living the Dream

Living the Dream

Over my life I’ve had many dreams, goals, desires, whatever you want to call them.  For the longest time it was my dream to serve in the military, that didn’t work out due to a medical denial.  It’s always been my dream to be an author and I guess I’m living that dream now (I have written a few books).  I’ve also had the dream of buying a plot of land and living off the grid, and I’m working on that dream as best I can.  There have been many others over the course of my life, from dreams of climbing Everest to dreams of hiking hundred mile treks.  Some I’ve fallen out of love with and others I’ve doubled down on.  One thing I realized though is that in order to ‘live the dream’ I need to take action, I need to always be living the dream.
