MEDIA: My Head’s on Steroids

Lately I've been thinking about when I put out my very first album seven years ago. I just can't believe it.  Seven whole years; damn.  I decided to call it Manifestation as it truly proved to be this sonic carving out of almost 10 years' worth of dreaming about putting out an album.  Furthermore, it was … Continue reading MEDIA: My Head’s on Steroids

ENTRY: Now Write it Out, Write it Out…

A few years ago, I remember being at a Tuesday night home-group meeting [AA] and I had decided to stay for a few minutes at the end to help with putting away some folding chairs.  One of the group's more doughty members was actually this gravelly-voiced older woman named Tessa.  I ended up growing to … Continue reading ENTRY: Now Write it Out, Write it Out…

MEDIA: Not Afraid

I saw this man live in concert a couple weeks ago, when he was closing out the big Boston Calling music festival in Massachusetts.  I've always considered Eminem to be one of the best, most spirited rappers of all-time.  Generally speaking, I believe that the more conviction a rap artist delivers the better.  Classic performers … Continue reading MEDIA: Not Afraid

ENTRY: Meditating… Wheels within Wheels (at First)

For the longest time--in fact it was up until recently when I actually followed through with my eleventh step, but honestly, I never knew how to meditate.  Well, that was how I used to phrase it.  I thought that there was this certain, strict procedure behind meditating.  I always thought it had something to do … Continue reading ENTRY: Meditating… Wheels within Wheels (at First)
