Ramblings From an Apathetic Adult Baby

Mostly rambles, few brambles

Season One

Hello, Beautiful Readers,


I know I haven’t been regular, but I’ve devised a plan, and I’ve started taking fiber.


I’m shifting from the sporadic posting to the one-season-at-a-time model. For a ten-week stretch beginning next Monday, I’ll return to a weekly regiment. Then, sassy and fat with self-esteem, I’ll burrow back down into a hedonistic hibernation, only to emerge at some point in the future to share a new batch of ten-to-twelve-ish pieces.


In my perfect fantasy, everyone everywhere will adore all ten—each one feeling like the entire world is together on a roller coaster of unbridled laughter and reflection. Then, after all ten pieces have run, I’ll be famous enough to party with astronauts.


Realistically, there may be some you enjoy. Some you’ll cringe through. Others, still, that you’ll finish, and while gazing at the dirty snow and leafless trees—reminded of your own mortality— you’ll vow to stop wasting your life in five-minute increments of Justin Gawel.


It’s up to you. I had a great time writing these and experimenting. I truly hope you have as much fun reading.



Love as always,

    Regularity escapes me often as well

    This is so terribly exciting to me, it was like a long lost treasure had been unearthed upon getting this post inboxed to me. I look forward to this season; question – was this considered the pilot episode, Or is that still to come? At the very least, you have inspired me good sir and perhaps I shall myself climb back on my steed and write again. Onward!

      Thank you, thank you so much! I’m glad you’re looking forward to the season and considering getting back into writing! It’s truly a blast, though, admittedly, tough to get motivated sometimes. I wouldn’t say this is a pilot, maybe more like an extended trailer, mayoral decree, or postcard reminder to vote.
