Holy Hell in a Hand Basket

20 Jun

Me in San Diego recently. Kick ass place.

Like my grandma used to say:

“Holy hell in a handbasket!”

That’s right bitches, I’m back.

Actually I’m lying.

My grandma never uttered those words in her life. And nor do I ever say “that’s right bitches” to anyone in any context, so we’re either 2 for 2 or none for none, depending on how you want to count.

But anyway what I’m trying to say here, dear friends, readers, stumblers, and random search engine traffic visitors is:

Lookie! It’s another post on Dreaming Life.

It’s been a long time.

And like the punk rock DIY zines of yesteryear, each of which started with a cut and pasted introduction (which back then was in reference to literally cutting and pasting with actual scissors, paper, and paste – imagine that!) proclaiming the zine editors amazement at how long it’s taken this issue to get out and blah blah, this is the blog-age digital equivalent to such confessions.

It’s been like a year and some change since the last blog post.  In that time I was (and still am) working for myself doing the whole Internet Marketing/Niche website thing. Which means I make a lot of websites on products and consumer services and then sell ads on those sites. It’s a pretty awesome formula, but one that typically stands in stark contrast to what, dare I say, real blogging is all about: writing and connecting with other people!

And damn, ya’ll, that’s what I effin’ miss.

So I got a pretty new theme here, a good attitude, and lots of words & ideas to get out. Maybe I’ll just start posting all sorts of stuff on here and see what floats my boat, see what sticks: dream reports, personal stuff, experimental prose, hell maybe even my art and music. We’ll see.

Or maybe I’ll follow this up with a post in 2011 where I say all the same things again about how long it’s been since I posted on this blog.


Nah, I think I’ll stick around for awhile and share my thoughts with the world, and see what happens. It’s more fun that way, don’t you think?

    Howdy Ryan! Great to see you around mate. Only recently have I begun to remember and write down my dreams again. I’ve been using this program called “The Journal” to write things down and keep track of my dreams – it’s great, it’s gotten to be a feedback loop of sorts where the more I write my dreams down, the easier I remember them, causing me to write them down more, etc. I actually had a very short lucid dream the other night – first one in a bit – which was nice, although there was really only weak lucidity going on, but nevertheless I still enjoyed moving my hands through things over and over and marveling at the situation. 🙂

    How have you been?

    Dude – I see your SP book is coming out in print! That is just super duper great my friend. Couldn’t be happier for you with that & will definitely be looking for a copy once it’s out. Also, I’m thrilled that even though myself, Kris @ Reality Shifter, and Hatter @ Dreaming to Infinity all kinda stopped posting on our dream blogs, Dream Studies is stronger than ever.
