I've definitely been doing a lot of coming and going lately, and I'm mostly referencing my mood.
It's been a while since I really had the energy to get online and scope out how some of my favourite places are doing, let alone write.
A couple months ago, everything went to ****. I lost my job, although granted that was kind of on purpose. Then I lost my home, and then I became a burden on all my loved ones, and as of late life has been a struggle just to bother getting up in the mornings.
Posted a new article over at my wordpress blog, The Crumpled Page.

My latest post deals with the frustrations I've had over not writing, and how I went about collection inspiration at the local bookstore.
New article at my official blog, 'The Crumpled Page', on the correlation between consumerism and disasters, as well as disaster fatigue, global warming and some general all purpose ranting.
This article was spawned from thinking about that old controversial bus advertisement that went something along the lines of 'There's probably no god so stop worrying and enjoy your life'.

On Writing: Advice for writers block/procrastination. Getting down the first sentence!
Spent most of last week moving. Three guys with tons of stuff. It was a painful exhausting experience that could only have been saved my my mothers incredible Shepherds Pie at the end of the day. Thanks Mum!
Settling into a temporary base on my buddy's couch right now for a month. Then another couch, then, heading out West! Banff baby! Going to rip the mountains and write in the shade of giants for the winter. Another great adventure!
New laptop is finally up and running. The 'Red Shark' I'm c
A new post in my blog. Just a descriptive piece of writing focusing on my love affair with all things rain, and my observations of people in the rain.
Also over there are some articles about perspective vs reality, consciousness, sleep deprivation and great thinkers.
As for me, moving soon AGAIN. 100th time in this life. I ca
Alrighty I'm back again. Come and go quite often! Always miss this place when I'm gone.
I'll be around for a bit. Got lots to say as always. AH! I missed these smilies!!
I want to tell you guys about my real blog. I'll try and pin the two together or something so my blog entries there appear here. Not very tech savvy but I'll figure it out at some point.

Five articles so far. I'm focusing on the nature of reality, metaphysics, consciou
