Beard wearer. Bicycle rider. Forklift enthusiast.
Audiobook narrator. Publisher.
A poet by necessity.
My next book arrives near the end of '20.
I've written two full-length books of poetry under the name William S. Friday. They are A Death on Skunk Street and Between Love and Orgasms, both published by Hostile 17 Print, a division of Silver Star Laboratory.
I live near the Pacific Ocean in Long Beach, California.
After more than three years, I still begin almost every day with a cup of black coffee, followed by time spent in the blank pages of my journal. Originally, this practice of self-care… at the suggestion of a dearest friend… was begun as an attempt to find my way out of a year-long “depressive episode”, that had led me down a dark emotional path.
What began as a desperate attempt to climb out of a dark hole, eventually became a road of discovery that brought me back into the light.
This is an Instagram post of a thought that came to me today, while the coffee was still warm. It stands on its own merits. But there were still more words to follow.
