Transparency – Journal 3/27/17

So where was I this weekend? Why, I was in North Bend, Washington, with my lovely girlfriend! Spent the weekend with her. Lotta poems gonna come out of that, for sure. North Bend is absolutely gorgeous, and if you ever get the chance to go through the Snoqualmie Pass, you ought to take it if you’re on a road trip or something.

Took a lot of photos, did some writing, and have to compile it all neatly! That stuff should show up here on Radio Reality City in about May. Maybe. I have a lot to go through.

Whenever I’m not around for a few days, I’m basically away from keyboard. This site isn’t run by a corporation who can schedule shit (even if I can do that myself if I take some time to put some stuff out), and there isn’t so much content that I can endlessly and predictably churn things out.

I’ve fallen into an interesting place where I CAN produce enough to cover posting every day, which is a lot to ask of a creative type. I’m not making songs or films or anything like that, but inspiration can take some days off. I’ve got days where I don’t write anything at all, and I’ve got days where I can take and edit 10 pictures, write 4 poems, and do a short story. That’s enough content to last 15 days, if I post once a day. Still, I don’t depend on those bursts to make up for not having inspiration on other days. I keep on making.

Which, if I also wanted to put up 5 things a day, I would. I’m a little weary of having a stockpile, though. I don’t ever want to run out of stuff to post unless I die and then automatic posting takes over.

So the absence from here will be made up for, I think, with the future stuff I have from this past weekend I’ve made. My wonderful girlfriend, some stuff about Mount Si, some stuff about orange chicken and Indonesian food that we had, and the adventures we’ve had and will have.

Uplifting stuff! I hope you guys enjoy. Eventually.

And about that last journal, where I basically posted my Amazon reviews, I’m gonna try not to do that again. This is what I want a “critiques/reviews” section of my site, is because I think there’s enough stuff I’m interested in that I could review, though I also don’t want to typecast myself as that kind of writer, a critic. We’ll have to see how this goes, but I’m already thinking an in-depth look at something like all-time my favorite movie, Mr. Nobody, would be fucking awesome to do (helps that Jered Leto looks fantastic in that short hair). That could also just be an essay.

I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m not sure what to do about that yet. But that’s okay, as long as a move hasn’t been made yet.

This is my first move: have a journal!

(Sidenote: I really do have a blog now. Fifteen year old me would kick my ass for that.)
