  • Back In The Saddle Again
    I’m back in California after a long respite and several crises of various proportions. Luckily none of these have been fatal or long-lasting. However, I have had a good time recovering and am currently feeling pretty darn good. And now, the news: Roommate I have taken on a roommate here on the homestead. I live…
  • Mrs. Crawford
    Jennifer has an interesting and good take on hers and my good relationship. Hey, the girl is cool. And yes, for a while we absolutely felt hatred and enmity. But you know what? Hatred stinks. Nothing but trouble it is. One interesting tidbit, or not very-interesting tidbit — she will likely keep the last name…
  • Unprecedented
    So last night was really cool. I got to go have fondue and see a great movie with great people. A good time with good people is not unprecented. The fondue was really awesome. It was pricey, but awesome. We dipped bread and veggies and apples in a garlic-y cheese fondue pot as the first…
  • My Poetical Friend
    Jennifer Simpson is a cool friend. Some of her poetry is really awesome. I went with her to take part in the Full Moon Poets in September and it was great. She had many many poems, and some of them were quite moving and witty and good. I myself read a version of Two Ships….
  • Don’t
    I think it’s important that folks not presume too much about the precise details of what I’m up to based on this blog. I share honestly here, but not terribly explicitly. It’s frankly not anyone’s business exactly what I’m doing moment to moment. I may hint at some things to be cute sometimes. But the…

  • New Stuff – San Diego Spots!
    New stuff here on artlung.com — this is called San Diego Spots and features stray comments from my friends Jennifer (yes, that Jennifer) and Erin on cool stuff to do and see and eat in San Diego. It’s small, but excellent. I’m biased though. Also featured is Erin’s List of Things That Aren’t Here Anymore…
  • Marital Brief
    Jennifer updates her journal, live and in person from my living room. I grieve, still, for what we lost. I’m exultant at what we have both gained. We’ve grown up. Her leaving may be the best thing that ever happened to me. I’ve come to understand so much. I’m learning every day. Trying to be…
  • The Exhaustion Of Emotion; The Getting On With Life Of It All
    I’m exhausted. I feel good. It’s Sunday morning. Got up early, hoping to get a start to the day. But there’s nothing really to do today. But I’d like it to be mellow. That easy feeling has been something I’ve been after this past week. The wet weather has been a catalyst for some of…
  • What’s Up… TODAY-UPDATE
    Today has gone flawlessly so far. Freelance work has gone well. Did some billable time. Got a greenlight on a nice-sized project. Feels nice. I saw Jenny for lunch, and that was great. I like her. She’s nifty. I feel lucky that I don’t feel ill will toward her. She’s a cool person to know….
  • Reader Feedback; What’s Up
    Response to my would-be personal ad has been great, and critical. My Mom says I should be careful what I wish for. She also points out that Jennifer may meet the criteria I set as well. It’s interesting, last Friday I was talking with my Uncle and said that I thought Jenny and I would…
  • Should You Be Worried About Joe? Big Update
    The $50,000 question these days I find myself asking myself is this. Am I going to be okay? Do things really work themselves out? Does time heal all wounds? Will Batman escape the clutches of the nefarious Dr. Freeze? I am confronted more and more with my own optimism. It’s been more than 3 months…
  • Putting the Game Face On
    Today, or rather Sunday, was kinda rough. The emptiness of the apartment I think was working on me. Sundays can be so long. Having some loneliness is no help. But anyway, I’ve been setting up online banking, and I’ve been capturing old cassettes to aiff, then to mp3 – so I can play and make…
  • Funkburger
    Just feeling a little bit funky now. Not exactly sad. Not exactly happy. Not exactly lonely. But a little funkburger. I think the time change from Hawaii has caught up with me. Also, there is lots of stuff happening with family (new skin issues for my Grandfather, nothing major, my Aunt just got in a…
  • Everything Has Changed. Topsy Turvydom.
    Turnarounds in every aspect of my life are occurring. For the better. For the worst. For a change. I feel very much like a cork on the surface of a turbulent sea. Hurled from place to place, bounced and flipped by the sea. But alive, and surviving. I am now on a leave of absence…
  • Gato has left the building
    Jenny and I have now been separated 6 1/2 weeks. The cat has been a great comfort to me in that time. A companion through my tears and angst and sorrows — and a bringer of laughter, because he is, at the heart of it, a real ham. As this new life, this separated life…

  • Update; Comics
    Jennifer came over last night. Picked up some stray mail. Visited the cat. We spoke a little. No definitive word on counseling. It was emotionally draining to be around her. But luckily, I presently get support from some serendipitous places. Phone calls can be wondrous. Later, I made this (and other things) but I’m only…
  • The Weekend Update
    This has been a really full weekend. Where on earth to start? First off, for those of you with no patience, it was a good weekend. No donnybrooks. Saturday I started off by playing racquetball with Bob Sturm, who soundly kicked my butt this weekend. Enjoyable games, all, but I was not at 100%. Next…
  • New News
    Not much new to report. Jennifer called late last night and left a message on my machine. We have administrative things to address, papers to sign, keys to turn over. She also asked how my trip was and wished me well. I’m having a hard time understanding how it is she still has any interest…
