DANIEL'S LATEST COLUMN

good night, brown eyes.
i don't exist.
1.30.08 : feature!

The days slow down, office white. Right now it feels like the sound of static anticipating its jarring release. Fluorescent light bulbs and daylight are one and the same. My eyes are weary with neon. I communicate through Post-Its and e-mail. I'm eastern, central, mountain and pacific all rolled into this mess of non sequiturs. Coffee and paperwork. Youtube chuckles, Facebook nudges. Patterns in meaningless data. I've always been terrified of signing along dotted lines. You've never been one to read through them. It's been this way before. We've walked down these paths, but always stuttering. Nervous. Half-hopes and "what-if"s. Walking bridges before burning them down. But it's never been like this. Like this, when I find myself throwing punches at the moon out of frustration. When I talk too much and make too little sense at night. Yelling through a cell-phone and grasping for any connection whatsoever. When... when? When was the last time I was really ho...

RAVES

re: good night, brown eyes.

Very relateable, rhythm in the words and the senses.

re: kafka had it right

That was beautiful!

re: kafka had it right

I've had to read it a few times, because it wasn't what I thought it would be - but I really, really liked it. It was inspiring in an unplaceable way.

re: kafka had it right

Outstanding.

re: i wish i knew the meaning of my life

This column is a lot better than your last! You make a lot of really good points and back them up. Try to avoid inviting people to question you, ("or do you think I'm just a kid who is talking out of his ass? I think I have experienced enough to express myself this way") You're right, you have. Speak with the authority you have, and don't ask people to question it. It weakens your point. Keep submitting!

re: i wish i knew the meaning of my life

Nice job of putting your thoughts down and getting things out. It's something everyone can relate to. One critique: No need to ever apologize to your audience for your thoughts.
