Well, if anyone is still listening, you may want to know how things have turned out. And if anything has changed. Or maybe you don’t give a fuck. I’m not sure if I do. I may have changed some. But as far as any profound shifts in the core of my being…well…life just doesn’t work that way. As John Prine wrote:
I sit alone just looking at the world
Through a storm window
And down on the beach
The sandman sleeps
Time don’t fly
It bounds and leaps
Yeah, time doesn’t fly for us. It trips and stutters and falls and gets up, dusting itself off. Well, actually, time doesn’t do any of those things. It moves on, unfeeling, complacent. And time does not exist of and by itself. Time only exists in the mind and heart and soul of every person that’s shuffling around on this crazy speck in some random galaxy in the cosmos trying to figure out what the fuck is going on. It doesn’t exist for those yet born, or those who have passed on.
And I guess, in this post-existential world, when your left with nothing but the foolish dreams of a hopeless romantic your left with…well…pretty much nothing. But then again, somebody once said: “every day is the start of something beautiful…”.

Sorry for your shattered dreams and that reality inevitably sets in.There must be a better word than ‘Fuck’ to express your feelings. That being said, please continue to share your journey and if you are a ‘soon to be published children’s book author’ swear words might have to go bye-bye.
Good point. Im thinking that the kids book might be published under a pseudonym. Or visa versa. With the blog am just speaking from the soul, and from the angels who are sending these messages. They seem to like the word ;). Thanks for checking in!
Is there really a better word than “Fuck?” I do not think so. Well done sir. I loved it!
Fire an impossibly fast arrow into the existential blackness of the cosmos, then wait for what seems forever, and you’ll wind up shooting yourself in the ass.
Or, to steal a truism from “Beyond Thunderdomw”: no matter where you go….there you are!
Thanks. As Casey Stengel said: You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.
I don’t think u should change a Fucking thing. And Fuck was the perfect word to use. Unless u can think of a stronger word or saying like Sut the Fuck up, this is my story and l will make it the way l Flipping want to! Good Job Mark! Peace??
