i rotate my dishes
with the hopes that
all of them will get equal use...

i really don't understand why blogger can't display colors correctly...

i lived here many years a go

not a particularly good period of my life
i have been many places
not all of them were pleasant
or kind to me
but you get the idea...
i think about a lot of things, whenever
i drive by here, or
take a picture of the old girl.

was/is one of those days.

here i am

trying to fly
under the radar

this is my blog
about detroit
abandoned detroit
this photograph is not from detroit, however

i have been rambling here for a few years now
and i'm not sure if i have gotten anywhere...
i have to do something,
even if it's wrong.
right now is one of those times.

i suppose that

most of this blog is bullshit
my own fodder
i get embarrassed sometimes
when i look back on the ridiculousness
i guess i keep it going
because every once in awhile
i need to get it out there
certain words
this, is not one of those times
this is purely filler

i recently quit posting to flickr

a few years back, before i joined flickr
i only did it here
on a blog
not this blog
but the one before it
and the one before that
there's a little too much bullshit out there
so i'm going to try and reinvent myself
it will either happen here
on this blog
or i will shut this thing down too...

needless to say

i am less than excited
to be posting a photograph
from this boring old detroit building...
it's amazing how something that was once exciting
a few short years a go
can barely raise my temperature now.

scattered here
amongst the fallen pieces of plaster
and the empty cans of "full throttle"
are the......fuck it!

2 in 1 day

this is a shot that i had been wanting to take for quite some time
after being chased around the hospital complex by
security, and an unknown SUV
we managed to find our way in to this building
i'm glad i got a chance to see this
before it's gone...

i have this blog

but i really don't have anything to say lately
maybe i'm entering a quiet part of my life?
beaten down by the economy-
what do i know
all i know is i'm trying

i heard a song today

that reminded me
of my grandmother.
it took her 11 years to die from cancer, that
was supposed to kill her in 6 months
i helped take care of her-
in between changing her diaper
and getting high, i
found the time to watch her suffer
and lose her mind
when i got home, after hearing the song
i slept on the couch for 3 hours

i'm awake now
wishing i could just fall back asleep.
it's sunday
8:23 PM
in january
i am afraid
and it hurts...

my mother used to take me fishing

when i was a boy
not to the lake
or a river
instead, it was a pond
at a local park
i would watch the fish push their way through the mud;
never really swimming
always working

my mother would sit in a lawn chair
reading novels
and i would fish
i would just stand there
holding the pole
wondering if i was doing it right

i caught one, one time
but i unhooked it
and threw it back in to the mud
i asked my mother if we could go home
she packed up her lawn chair
her cigarettes
and her books
we drove home, alone together

i haven't gone fishing since...

2 in 1 day

a black and white photo of detroit
and sharp
no HDR
no fake sky

i am once again posting to my blog

from my bed
using my cell phone
posting to my photo blog
but no photo
i did want to start the year off
on a hot streak
but this is as hot as I'm gonna get it
luke warm
piss warm
