A Bit About Auryaun
Words and music, art and play: these are the things I enjoy most. What you’ll find here are a mish-mash of my creative musings, such as they are. I intend to explore different ideas as I go along. Some days I will gripe, another day I might post a drawing or a piece of music I’m working on. I just don’t know.
I used to have a WordPress blog, ages ago. I ended-up feeling constrained somehow, and limited by my own creation. This this will be a fresh start for me.
My vision is simple: Be the light in the darkness.
The beacon of light in the tunnel. The glimmer of hope in the dead of the night.*
I need to expound on this page, I realize. There’s always an “about” page, isn’t there? I’ve included mine out of habit, but I’m entrained to be modest, or else the waters of life become troubled for me. This seems to be my greatest lesson, and it’s stunted my reach for every dream I have ever had. I need to give that one a hard, cold look in the face.
I’ll most likely just delete this page altogether, as I realize all that’s required is just the blog page. I don’t feel the urge to paint any more. I keep feeling like I should, and I have my supplies right there and ready, whenever I might be in the mood to grab them. I have no idea when that might be again.
I feel more and more that I want to create some sort of narrative of my life, and the thing is, when I’ve shared my stories with people, they often seem like a huge bummer—which they often were, at the time. But now that I’m so much older I feel like I can look back and see the ridiculousness of it all, in that sly sort of subtle way that I always took quality satire to be: at its true heart, actually quite funny.
I guess that’s ultimately what I hope this whole site to be, including the podcast recordings, and the music, and the tarot readings, and vlogs. I have much to share, and I know it would be compelling and surprising, even shocking.
I’ve led a very interesting life.
