Mental Health Monday – 07.25.22

mentalhealthmonday#mentalhealthawareness Been a minute. Life gets in the way, it’s a fact we can’t always avoid. There will always be demands on our resources, our time, our energy, our emotions, and the fact is we only have so much to draw on. We need to cultivate a strong concept of who we are. As individuals, […]

Personal Best

This was kind of a big deal for me. Yesterday, my website was accessed by humans and robots on every continent on planet Earth, except Antarctica, but penguins don’t read poetry, so fuck them. Finally cracked South America. Thank you, Ecuador! I’m guessing there isn’t a huge market for English language poetry, but I will […]

1000 Posts

Today I published my 1000th post to the Hokus Grey Blog, as anticlimactic a milestone as one could expect, but a significant one, nonetheless. I hope you all have enjoyed these pieces and I promise that they will keep coming. Writing is less a choice for me than it is a necessity of life. Like […]


Keep Going.   It’s what I hear over and over. The mantra in the dojo, in the literature and now, it’s in my head.   Keep Going.   It works. It has no equal. There is no substitute for being present. Now, my neophyte mind just wants to be more present and more acute and […]

Merry Christmas Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the […]

Working Weekends

Everybody’s working for the weekend!   …. well I am, at any rate.   I usually bring my book in and upload my new pieces from my workstation in my spare time, but today I forgot it at home. I was forced to forge a new piece of poetry for your reading pleasure.   It […]

Children of The New Unknown

For those born to seek, there is no peace. The search is in their blood and even death will not quench their thirst for wondering.   No answer found will satiate the questions asked by hollow and driven wayfarers.

Update – A Little Background

Hello, If you’ve been following along with our little trip down memory lane, perhaps you have noticed that things have taken a bit of a turn for the… weird? The works have become angry and dark and what I like to think of as “Savage”, but a lot of it is just general insanity. There are many reasons […]
