  • a magnificent torch illuminating our path

    attached to the wall

    by some 15th century explorer

    held more life than i could ever imagine

    hundreds of years of passing conversation

    muffled laughs, […]

  • There in that car

    troubled by the emptiness of life

    choosing between wild youth and something else

    what did you expect

    how could we be bitter

    there wasnt anything else

    you caused this

    I love it

    Thanks Jim. It’s always good to be here.

  • I get down on the floor, I roll and tumble and play. I am a feline, a creature of the night. I am a rolling breeze darting between your windows. I am lying in the sun. I am electric, orbiting my world. Attack, play, destroy, I know I am the better of two worlds. Shaking wings, muddled shrieks, brilliant red.

  • who am i

    to you, mostly, some words on a screen

    just some impression

    of emotion and inspiration and ignorance

    a voice here in the void

    howling into infinity

    forever

    but to me, maybe thats […]

  • you are very brave and wonderful. how do we change? well we stand outside and let the sun warm our face and wind fan our hair. we follow that internal compass that points directly to our center.

  • and we say to ourselves, “slow down, stop doing so much”, and we’re haunted by it. haunted by both the thought of slowing down and the fact that we cant.

  • there are some places i go, when my head is too scattered. its a cold place or warm when i need it

    and i feel like fire and oceans and rain

    and i cannot stop this kinda mind

    where it kinda rains

    and […]

    thanks jim, ive always found it to be that we’re either climbing a mountain or rolling down it

  • Has it gone,

    Is this really it

    this place?!

    This fucking place

    These last remnants of the old ship

    that led us to adventure

    that forced us here

    I think maybe that time is gone

    where the […]

    • Time moves us all enexorably forward, we can never go back, only look back with memory. The people we are today are not the same as the people we will be tomorrow, time has moved us on. Nothing in nature repeats – it just seems like it does, and in an ever evolving but decaying universe, we are compelled to obey the entropic cycle and succumb to the inevitability of change, there are no exceptions.

    • Everything begins, and ends in the mind. Everything. Before anything is created, the thought, the spark, begins in the mind. We can have an active mind, (perhaps over-active?), or we can be brain dead but as long as we give birth to the creations in our mind, as long as we keep giving our experiences, our creations, a little tlc and CPR even, then they stay alive. They are not gone, they are only tucked away in the file box of our mind for when we want to bring them out again and relive them, maybe even change them.

      Great work Ben. As always your words are inspirational, motivational and make me think. I like that.

    • I have done some ‘past life regression’ stuff and what I have gained from that does indeed fit into my present life experience.

    it shakes around until it belches out into the atmosphere. those words we call thoughts beat ever faster, echoing through our lives, making us a finely shaded grey of obscure words.

  • Grown and obscure

    And Everyone telling you to endure

    but maybe you cant do it

    maybe your not worth it

    where is your worth

    tied up here in some meaningless company

    some crackpot scheme

    can you […]

    • Everyone has their path, their niche to follow in life. The trick is in finding which is yours. I’m still searching, more than halfway through.

  • You charming little notch in the windowsill

    How many mornings have you captured

    Have you heard our madness

    Im ashamed

    I promise we’re not that way

    Love is our language

    We’re working on it

    I […]

    As the son of a lightkeeper I find a lot of myself both protected from the wave and one with it, we kids would follow the tide as it shown us some path to new sands. I leapt into world half foot and half fin, I’m glad your here to share this light.

    Thanks Jim, I’m glad its been consistent for all these long years.

    And there is a bristle left of the dusk

    something left to grab on to as we strafe further into the night

    I know we wont make it, we were coastal cast on a deep valley

    between two contesting […]

    • Nice. As always (as I remember), your words are so descriptive and build the image in our minds-eye so that we are not only reading your words but seeing them too. I still like your writing friend.

    • I think I would have enjoyed the solitary nature of the old lighthouse keepers back in the day. Now, of course, it’s all electronically managed and the lighthouse keepers are but a distant memory.

      • Awesome reveal Ben. I never knew this, why would I? Nice to see that you appreciate that time in your life too. Thanks for sharing.

  • there are bodies and cadavers and hopes and and dreams alike. There are we here, the treetop shadows, the winds and whispers that hope you continue, that live for story. Don’t fall prey to the age of celebrity, there are plenty here, some a little more verbose than others
