I like to write in the early morning hours before a city like Florence comes alive and not talk to anyone save my most important lover or the few ones I may be fascinated about because in the afternoon and evenings in this beautiful place I turn into the monsters I created.
This seems to happen the beginning of every new year. I take to exercise machines really hard for a couple of weeks, feel better-yes-look better-yes, feel high-higher than a kite-and then I just stop out of boredom. Perhaps, I should have a partner when I workout.
With someone else there, maybe, it wouldn't be so boring on a treadmill for nearly 40 minutes or the cycle that doesn't go anywhere, the weights and my favorite part: stretching on a pink mat with a little bit of Hatha Yoga thrown in. Now that part is not boring...
After two sober sessions, these two songs ("505" by Arctic Monkeys and "Lose Yourself to Dance" by Daft Punk) I play repeatedly on GooglePlay when I am on the treadmill. I believe I have listened to Arctic Monkeys' "505" more times than anyone else in the Universe. By far it is my favorite pick me up song, favorite having sex song (these days) and now to exercise as well. I've never played it with writing fiction though because for that I prefer silence. No sound at all...no social media, no telegrams or phone calls and troubled young lovers always in desperate need...except the steady beat of my fingers on the keyboard, the sound of my breath and own heartbeat. Here's to 2018!
Oh! Have added four more songs to CharlesLPearson GooglePlay for the Treadmill completion...
JournalCharles: While somewhat stuck in the middle of fiction writing tonight along with a strange emptiness that tugged in my heart and then an insane rush probably from too much sugar after eating a slice of coconut cake and a sweet wine, I spin the globe very hard in the WritingRoom. Around and around it becomes a blurry blue tangle. I close my eyes and decide where it stops is where I should Holiday next. When it stops I open my eyes to see India and the Indian Ocean. Fascinating, yes. Distance between New York City and Mumbai is 7796 miles. Flight time is 15 hours and 16 minutes...Oh well, something to ponder as I go back to writing to forget everything that just happened...
I don't watch TV but did see Brandon Herring, anchor person for WBTW-TV Channel 13 Florence/Myrtle Beach, in another location this morning. WoW! Look forward to our introduction some day! B. Herring has the Best Southern accent in History next to my old pal Timmy Wells. I could hear him speak all day...and night long without ever being bored. He could even whisper and I would be moved. Just the way he pronounced: "Cough-ing..".with that accent I can't soon forget...
Plus, he's tall & goodlooking.
JournalCharles: The white snow is very beautiful. I love it even when my fingers hurt from shooting pics up in the park of two teenage girls snowboarding and a family and their dog gathered on a snow-covered bridgeand the snowflakes kept coming down...harder...almost blinding and smacking me in the face. Ammie came over. I never seen her look more beautiful than today in a new leopard hat, matching gloves and scarf, and her pretty brown skin was luminous, without makeup and youthful. I kissed her because...she was so beautiful. So slender like gazelle...so wonderful to behold as my Mother...We almost finished moving everything, but then the snow came and wanted her to get back to Johnsonville, along ride away from Florence. I thought of riding with her there...but she insisted she would be OK...and that was that. I forgot to call SKA back who wanted to talk to Amime..whom he also calls mom. I have idea what they discuss... His mom, too, her fourth son, 7341 miles apart. Meanwhile, snow continues to fall in the night and all the streets and cars are covered white...

17 mins · Florence · JournalCharles Draft 29Dec17: There is good news in the wind...though the wind has made Firenze, SC, (and not Firenze Italy where some Californians think I am; I have been to Italy but visited only Rome, Venice & Milan and met a guy in Milan from Naples & we liked each other very much...) even colder in 29 degree arctic weather. A guard dog barks at me behind a chain-link fence over by Greyhound so I bought it a treat at a store and now it likes me. He's so butch. The beautiful moon is visible far away in a clear sky without clouds and the strong wind beats the hell out of an American flag outside the Library and in the sky the moon. Down a country road on my bike at the edge of the city the weather is different and I escape to where there are no people or cars and only nature, and I love being alone in the silence of it as I discover a hidden paradise in the woods and running creek call Jeffries...
Charles L Pearson added 4 new photos — at Soule' cafe.
9 mins · Florence, SC · JournalCharles Notes: 2Thumbs Up! Soule Cafe, Irby Street, heart of downtown Firenze, SC...Somewhat youthful, hip, edgy & the beautiful Florentines are patrons here with good music, art & drip coffee made & served by a cute New Jersey native boy. :) Patrons are mostly college-age Francis Marion University students, cruisers like me who wander & discover newer ppl and things that stir...Local Artist/Musician is featured Monday nights with cocktails. Wednesday Night is Open-mike...Owner is a musician who left Florence; then returned and invested in his hometown by opening a hip little cafe...Otherwise, it is raining in Florence, SC...an icy cold rain but there is much warmth in Soule Cafe as I debate should I spend New Year's Eve in my favorite place in world NEW YORK CITY or just spend it chatting with my faraway Babe, which is even a happier thought...New Years's Eve in NYC I think of that dance with Jon in Stonewall Cafe and the way eh kissed me...so sweet. I think of Lily and Jake's and all the free champagne she poured for us and that crazy guy who tried to climb the wall and we had pull him down...

Every Tuesday at Noon, San Francisco tests the Outdoor Warning System. No, the sky has not fallen nor is there an attack. The siren emits a 15 second alert tone that awakes the living.
Trending: trash news of the day
It has been brought to the attention of the charleslpearson.net (aka clpnet) that our owner and publisher Charles Pearson was sexually abused when he was 6, 7, 8 but also at the age of 9 years old.
