“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”

– Henry Miller

I’ve abandoned my writing. I’ve left her wrapped in a blanket on the front steps of the local firehouse. Not even that. I’ve left her there naked, with no supplies, with no thought whatsoever as to her wellbeing. And though it’s been about two months and she is a distant memory – I’ve forgotten her […]

I had an appointment with my therapist/healer the other day after which I came to this realisation… I’ve been fooled. All the self-help books and spiritual teachers I’ve come across have done one thing: distracted me from my own laziness and humanness. I am now, like the majority of those that walk this Earth, lost […]

Dear Buddy, I have said goodbye to my darling New York. It was a disjointed goodbye, an incomplete goodbye. Partly due to the fact that I was so deathly hungover from my farewell party the night before (won’t make that mistake again!) and partly because I didn’t want this to be the end. But it […]

Dear Buddy, This time next month I’ll be back in Australia. I’m excited to return, there are so many treasures I’ve picked up here that I’m eager to practice over there. Plus, I miss my family. I’ve got a wedding to help plan and a play to rehearse for and an agent to sign up […]

I released a helium balloon today. It wasn’t so much for the balloon itself as it was for me. At first I didn’t want to. I wanted to be selfish and hold onto it. It would give me something to talk about if I kept it, it would give me a reason to stay mad. […]

Dear Buddy, It has been a while, my friend. A while indeed. I don’t know what it is but I haven’t been much in the mood to write and I feel a little guilty for this. I posted some things a few days back but they came out of a feeling of obligation and not inspiration. […]

Dear Any Human Person I Might Meet in the Future, Here are ten important things you should know about me just in case we were to ever meet in the future, like at Wholefoods in a transaction-based scenario or at the scene of a car accident, or at a first date or job interview or […]

Dear Buddy, It’s been three weeks. Yikes. I can’t believe how quickly the time is passing. But you know what they say: ‘Time flies when you’re having fun’. And I am, Buddy. I’m having a lot of it! After my down week last week, when I became obsessed with online dating and felt a little homesick, it […]

Disclaimer: This monologue contains historical inaccuracies. Just go with it. A Woman, 30s, attractive, walks into a dimly-lit lounge in Beverly Hills. From a cassette player behind the bar, Kesha’s ‘We R Who We R’ is barely audible. She (the Woman) is wearing a black pashmina, dark sunglasses, and black leather gloves and is carrying with her […]

I have a ganglion the size of a golf ball on my left wrist. It’s a jelly-filled, bulbous, grotesque son-of-a-bitch and I wish it would die. But like all things that we wish would die, like weeds and war, they probably exist to teach us a thing or two. Weeds, that you need to take […]
