to the chaotic and often strange life of a Quasi, Clumsy Spiritual Warrior, Dan Abernathy. This is the weekly Newsletter where I share with you my voice, be it in words, art, or my collections of oddities, fascinations, desires and obsessions. Here I will make available 98% of all my perspectives, be they fluid and random, meandering and incomplete, or things I have completed and offering. They other 2% I keep to himself, archived and a gift for the scholars and naysayers to decipher later on. This will all be delivered to you via the web, whether I am roaming the road in his converted 1991 International school bus, The Chool Bus, home in Pinedale, Wyoming or briefly hanging my hat in another dusty corner of the world.

Words Of Wisdom – Words of too Much Wisdom
I’ve boldly stepped beyond the marker of a half-century and in doing so my mind accelerates with thought and contemplation, allowing many things to bloom with a new realization.
1, Genuine friendship without consideration is rear and needs to be fostered.
2, Never ask or assume that someone’s worth is what they bring to the table.
Just be filled with gratitude that they are at the table.
3, The way you are, the way you live and the energy you give will be the energy you receive.
4, There is nothing wrong with being alone. This is the time when the voice of reason
can best be heard.
5, Being comfortable in all maters of who you are should be a main priority.
6, Love is the trust gift that can be given and it should be done unconditionally.
It is something with no demands and when received should be accompanied
It all boils down to a simple scenario, know when to pretend to be a fool in front of the ones pretending to be intelligent. Take chances, give everything that you can, kiss slowly, play hard, keep calmness close, forgive quickly, love often, protect your dreams and leave with no regrets. - dbA

Poetry from an Anti-Conformist and Outlaw Poet
As poetry is a passion, one new bit of fun I have been having is submitting my poetry to different literary journals, both online and printed collections. Last week I had two poems excepted by The Beatnik Poet, Coors in a Can and I’m Missing.

Featured Poem of the Week
The Vague and Unwilling
I tried to study reality
by using a mind
that was molded from
a concocted compound.
With uneasy questions
that this modus operandi
was being viewed
through a kaleidoscope
of someone else.
I recognize now,
that it is only the vague,
that walk through this world
unwilling to do so
without false guidance
towards their own reality.
My Mind Has Forgotten to Age, is the first Limited Edition, 333 signed and numbered, Chapbook in an unnumbered series categorized as, Chronologies – Excerpts – Fragments – Reflections, From The Journals of Dan Abernathy. Each of the 23 poems were documented after conception, in my journals as will as the drawings. The 13, drawings you will see are also, excerpts and fragment of a completed larger drawing. I have chosen to present them to you in this fashion, to leave a slight grain of mystical wonderment for the future.

New The Rune Series
I have started a Rune series. These are made from pounded copper ground wire with the runic inscription placed on the copper with small chisels. Each one has a large ring for the 32 inch treated chain and are approximately 2 inches long. $38.00
Runes are the ancient alphabet of the Norse. They are one of the ways to practice the art of divination. Runes are most often carved into stones, but other materials such as bones, wood or shells have also been used. There are 24 runes, but some include a blank rune, the Rune of Odin. There is an apparent link between the power of the mind, as well as other magical properties, which are represented by the symbology contained within each symbolic letter.

Drawings, photographs, words and what have you, are all born from my thoughts. Seldom does a day pass that I do not work in my Journals, which have now become an archive of my past.
To you I will say: There is but one thing I know to be the absolute. In the world right now, death is my hunter. So I own no time but to live, for when I am captured, there will be no doubts and few regrets. – dbA
