Park Yourself

…out where few can find you. Where survival has the greatest appeal. Where your car can’t go.

Park yourself, not your car. Find yourself in desolate places with beautiful vistas on every hand. Out where influencers have no influence. Where it’s more evident how nature rules.

Sit still and let the beauty surround you. Let the beauty become you.

Turn under the sun. Once every hour, until you’re done.

Not baked, not fried, only done.

And when you return home, don’t forget the places you’ve been, remember them with your photographic memory. Recall them whenever you need a break from the crowded city streets, or from the onslaught of opinions and criticisms.

Right there where you parked yourself, in the quiet lonely places.

This is where I'm supposed to brag about how I've written seven novels, twelve screenplays, thousands of short stories, four self-help books, and one children's early-reader, but I'd rather stay humble. You can find out about things I've written or follow my barchive (web archive, aka 'blog) at or follow me on twitter @kurt_gailey. I love sports and music and books, so if you're an athlete or in a band or you're a writer, give me a follow and I'll most likely follow you back. I've even been known to promote other people's projects.
