Watching the sunset (with God)

Watching the sunset (with God)

I was watching the sunset with God.

I said, “I don’t understand why there is suffering, God. Why is there injustice, disease, and poverty?”

God said, “I wish you were around when I created everything. You could have made a real difference.”

The Split

The Split

I was woken by a rumbling.

I sat up in bed and looked around. A crack appeared in my floor. The room split in two.

The crack spread down and down until the Earth broke into two pieces.

I saw people looking back at my half of the Earth as it moved away from them. I waved. A few people waved back.

Backed up

Backed up

🥴 I was feeling off. Kind of bloated in the head, mouth, and throat.

Then I realized I hadn’t thought, said, or written anything for a couple of hours. There was a word backup.

So I opened my mouth and jettisoned words non-stop for twenty-five minutes.

When I was done, there was quite a big pile of words on the floor. I swept them up and shifted them into the empty pages of a notebook.

Then I shook up the book and mailed it to my literary agent.

What I woke up to

What I woke up to

👋 I was woken up by Wednesday saying, “Brooks! Brooks! Wake up!”

I said, “What is it, Wednesday? Is the house on fire?”

Wednesday said, “No, it’s just that I made you this day, and I’d love to see what you think of it.”

I looked around my room.

I said, “It looks like yesterday.”

Wednesday began to cry and said, “I’m sorry. I really wanted you to like it.”

I said, “But Wednesday, I really liked yesterday!”

💓 Wednesday said, “Yaaaaaaaay!”

I live with ants!

I live with ants!

🐜 I live in an underground ant colony.


I like it because it feels good to be part of a community.

I’m not an ant. But the ants don’t seem to mind.

🥮 Actually, they’ve told me they like how I can go out into the world, purchase an angel food cake, and place it just outside the ant hill for my fellow co-habitaters to disassemble and bring down into the tunnels.

I’m often asked how I’m able to squeeze into the entrance of the anthill? I don’t, but instead, I dug a human-sized hole right next to my friendly roommates subterranean passageways.

👋 I lay down in the hole and wave back at the ants as they go about their day.
