AM I STILL RECORDING?

(February 20, 2019 – A New Short Story)

My latest story Am I Still Recording? was written in response to a particularly memorable Twitter exchange I had last night.

Sometime this past weekend, I responded to a complete stranger’s thread on Twitter (like ya do), and this other gentleman responded to me. We finished our exchange and ended up following each other. 

Last night, he posted that he was suicidal. On Twitter. I had a slight panic attack because if I’m not going anywhere then neither is he, dammit!

I reached out to him, and he seemed calm. We all went to bed. 

Today, I reached out to see if he was still around. He is. Thank God.

This isn’t his story, nor is it (exactly) mine. 

This is the way things always are but never were.

Am I Still Recording? is a story for everyone (but, there is some language. Sorry, not sorry. It’s the way he talks.) who has ever felt like they were running out of pavement. 

There is plenty more road where that came from. Can you dare to trust?

Happiness is Nowhere– A Memoir

Many of us live our lives with the notion that happiness is a destination. We believe that when we finally get somewhere, get that job, obtain that thing or have that special relationship we will be happy. We’re sure there is a sunset to ride into where everything will go smoothly and our troubles will be over. We’ve been convinced there is a “secret” and that knowing it will make our lives complete.

Scott Langdon has spent the better part of his life chasing after this false idea. Sometimes the chase for that next big thing was thrilling, but ultimately it always ended poorly, sometimes with devastating results. His career at a standstill, his family life in shambles, and his will to live completely drained, he all but gave up on life.

After finding himself at this deadly crossroads in January of 2015, Scott set out on a new course, rejecting the notion that happiness can be found, but rather experienced one day at a time. He discovered that the key to happiness is that there is no key to happiness.

Through personal stories and commentary, Langdon encourages readers to experience their own transformations with regard to how they view their own journey to happiness, realizing that the destination is the journey.
