All I Need to Know I Learned From Alex Zivojinovich

This guy has taught me a lot... especially about avoiding taser-wielding asshole cops in Naples, Florida and getting your woman to shave her pubes.

Middletown Dreams

from "Middletown Dreams":

Dreams flow across the heartland
Feeding on the fires
Dreams transport desires
Drive you when you're down
Dreams transport the ones who need to get out of town

It's understood
By every single person
Who'd be elsewhere if they could
So far so good
And life's not unpleasant
In their little neighborhood

They dream in Middletown

Change. It's all at once frightening and exciting. Some people choose to follow their dreams. Others never explore them either out of fear or laziness. Following your dream usually means giving up something, or everything, to follow it. And for a few of us, change happens all by itself, without asking our permission and we are left with no choice but to leave everything we have known behind. This presents the opportunity to follow those long forgotten dreams. Otherwise we might have stayed at home and been content in our little neighborhoods.

Update: 1/15/10: I lived in Middletown for 3 years. Delaware.

Wheels Within Wheels

from "Natural Science":

"All the busy little creatures
Chasing out their destinies.
Living in their pools,
They soon forget about the sea.

Wheels within wheels in a spiral array,
A pattern so grand and complex..."

yeah, good stuff
