Get Up Again When You Get Knocked Down

Some days are brutal! I know you know what I mean. We’ve all had them! I’ve had so many metaphors run through my head for how this feels. Keeping your head above water when the world is pushing you under. (I thought it sounded to much related to cash) When you feel like a bobbing yo-yo. (a what?) That’s enough of that, the title says enough – like that song, “I get knocked down, but […]

Bleeding Deeds, Life’s Lust

I lead with my heart, letting deeds bleed me cold. The cruelty of form and substance was told, teach this boy to be a man, to claw and cling for every scrap, this life is our trap and rapture, and all the bleeding a must to trust. Launch yourself into oblivion, again and again unknowingly lost, seeking to find the innocence that slowly disappears in the dust. A phoenix you will be, one day near […]

The State of Prude

from the archives 2005 Had a thought today: What good is it to be a prude? I really can’t help but to ask such a question. Let’s examine this word, this character; the prude. Definition of prude is: excessively (often affectedly) squeamish or sexually modest person. Hmm, not a very promising existence. So much of our society has stifled our sexuality and all the pleasures, responsibilities, hurts and all, that it’s no wonder we’re so […]

Sit with this Stream of Consciousness Conversation

following a stream of consciousness zero equals infinity – you see? no, you can’t fit limitless quantities into nothing sure you can no, you can’t okay, look. with nothing, there are no boundaries, there are no limits; just emptiness so? so, infinite fits into that space, that emptiness huh? yes. and so does our universe. that’s where you’ll find God too. huh? yes, God. He is those spaces – perfect – there is no light, […]

Growth

For the sake of writing! There has been a hesitancy, even a fear or sense of dread, about writing on the blog pages of One Man Can. You see, the whole premise of the site, the writing, the coaching, the encouragement, was and is intended to lift people up, challenge people positively with their thinking, relationships, and professions. Instead, I found my own life being challenged and myself having difficulty being positive with the unfolding […]

Living Paradise

Eking out a living in this paradise Gimme Johnny Walker, neat, no ice A few more of those I’ll be alright Getting me through a long slow night Twisted pain of death lines my face Another chance tomorrow my saving grace I’m here to fight, never say die Always chasing truth never a lie Eking out a living in this paradise Gimme Johnny Walker, neat, no ice Smile for me Baby I’m here for you […]

Entrepreneur / Artist Journey

At a networking event, catching up on people I hadn’t seen in a while, one invidual took time to talk about being an entrepreneur. His articulate point of view, personal assessment, about what the journey of an entrepreneur is about, was very insightful. First, he had mentioned that the reason most entrepreneurs fail is they give up too soon. Being an entrepreneur, second, is more of a journey of Self than of building a business. Particularly in those first few years. Turning […]

The Passion of The Kiss

A faint memory stains my vision but the body remembers exquisitely for more addiction to develop erotic demands the attention in solitude screaming passion electric undercurrent stimulating pheremone cologne and a fiery belly shivering down to groan the delicious whispers of fantasy found in starburst red wet slick juicy full lips ripe with desire tasted lightly slightly tracing tongue upon the whimpers plead for more to further explore with torturous tease touching lightly your lips […]

Crow’s Call Revealed

As the crow brings wing to a taunting call and the float plane drones on overhead I am seated firmly on the old cedar log secure in the resplendent nature that surrounds me I fantasize about life with coffee on hand and cigarette smoldering between fingers With one last drag and licking of lips I exhale, as I toss it all away The worries and troubles with taunting call have winged away as fantasy arrives […]
