Chronologies, Excerpts, Fragments and Reflections!
the Artistic Journals of Dan Abernathy

In an era where knowledge and information is as close as our fingertips we, as a whole, seem to become less and less informed with the importance of truly being. Social media and the constant connection are depriving people with what is happening right here, right now. The perplexity our heads are submerged in now, is not one of calmness and purity.

There are lots of reasons to be connected to people, but it is also a venue to be sucked into the drama that unfolds each second. People are dedicating numerous hours of the day to be connected and involved in this performance of tragedy. The social cellphone dominion has been conceived and orchestrated into a mind-controlling atmosphere, which infested and acerbated in all populated areas. As people become involved and obsessed with this addiction, they in fact are all physically standing alone with their fixation. There is nothing real within their touch.

Put the cellphone devices down and not on the table your siting to eat at, to better keep a close eye for rumbling and buzzing notifications. Leave it in your pocket, purse or car. You do not need to constantly be on alert for another cellphone notification. Allocate some alone time without your cell phone. Take a walk, read a book, truly be with someone you love and give them 100% of your time and attention. It was not that long ago when we knew what existing without being tethered to a phone was. How living real time was without an umbilical cord to what is not. – dbA

The Oral Art of the Spoken Word
The sagebrush hills

that surround me
hold 1000’s of contradicting,
contrasting and unique stands of sagebrush.
Each one exclusively their own.
Each one different
then the one standing next to it.
They all survive and unite
in just being sagebrush.
So why is it expected of me,
or anyone else
to all be the same?
There is no reason to be like you,
or you to be like me.
We can only be ourselves,
united together as who we are.

That was Sagebrush a poem from my next Chap Book. Moring Sex and Pancakes
You can find more of my poetry on my website in the volumes of
Looking for Security While Wearing a Loincloth
I Don’t Shave on Sundays and
My Mind Has Forgotten to Age

Children of the Earth
There should be no reason for hating a race, a religion, or a way of living any chosen life. You do not have to agree with anyone’s way of thinking and believing, even when it is contrary to yours. But, bashing and hatred do not equate to living a free life for you. There is room within this global society for all people, as we are all children of the earth. – dbA
