Am I an Addict?

By Chris Bunton Yes, you are. You might not be sleeping in alleyways with a needle in your arm or standing in line at the dispensary or buying the cheapest liquor you can find, but you are addicted to something.             Mcdonald’s fries, gambling, religion, Facebook, work, Netflix, sex, your hobby, chocolate, running,Continue reading “Am I an Addict?”

Rise Up and Walk

Rise up and walk;when life’s got you down. Rise up and walk;your way around town. When depression sets in;and you only see the end.Rise up and walk. A little here. A little there.Around the block;or down a beautiful trail.Rise up and walk. If you’re sick; pray and believe.Then, rise up and walk. Trapped in a place?RiseContinue reading “Rise Up and Walk”

Sometimes

Sometimes,when the wind blows right,you can see between the sheer, and the solid. It is in between there,where you are in the presence of Love. That deep abiding joy,when everything is ok,and you know you are free.Despite what you see. That place in time,where you are eternal,and nothing in this momentcan intrude with its bullshit. ThereContinue reading “Sometimes”

My Plumber

My toilet sucked.It would not flush.I was like a caveman,with an outhouse. So, I called my plumber;he estimated thousands,to help me fit in,with all my neighbors.

Just Go

Just go! Get away from this place that makes you sick and maybe you’ll find yourself. Travel to where you want to go, it’s there waiting for you. Your life is but a vapor and drifts away, while you slave for another. Just go! Seek God, Seek Spirit, Seek the touch of the Divine, andContinue reading “Just Go”

Tell Your Plans to No One

Don’t tell anyone your plans, hopes, and dreams. Put everyone on a need to know basis. Do not even tell your spouse, until required. Do your research quietly. Make your moves without anyone knowing. Why do I say this? Well, have you ever told someone something that you had high hopes for, and felt yourContinue reading “Tell Your Plans to No One”

Desire for Travel and Adventure

     I have a strong desire for travel and adventure. It eats at me and I must go. I have sat at home too much, looking at the same old things. I sit watching others who are out on Friday nights, or on vacation while I desire to go do something as well.        Continue reading “Desire for Travel and Adventure”

The Lake

The Lake;sparkling vastlike a river of crystalthrough a green golden dream. The air is warm,and the breeze is cool.The music plays,and the kids run. The birds;those lovely birdsour friends, singingsweet to the beatof Life. Zoom to the lake,perfectly warm, butcool enough.Dragonflies swoop,where the fish jump. It’s hard to stand;in the wake of the boats.Waves poundingContinue reading “The Lake”

Remembering

 I was walking downtown at night, when I got the strong smell of whisky in my nose. It was over powering, and brought back memories of puking that stuff up a thousand times. It was Southern Comfort. The smell was so recognizable I could almost taste it.             I have not drunkContinue reading “Remembering”
