Who I Am and What Delusions of Ink is about.

My name is Brian,

I’m a horror and fantasy writer. I’ve been practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM) since 2014. I bartend at weddings and events to pay for my writing and other things. I have a couple of kids and an amazing wife.

 

Delusions of Ink, in its current form, began after the death of my grandfather, then, when we were planning to move, my father-in-law passed away.

Both of these events wrecked my wife and me.

After the passing of my grandfather, I started TM. My wife began her practice a year later after her father passed.

Our move was influenced by his death, giving our kids a new life, and giving me a chance to pursue writing full-time.

I write daily, lift weights four to five times a week and bartend a few days a week, sometimes more.

I talk about depression, sometimes thoughts of suicide–so here’s my TRIGGER WARNING ALERT. I won’t always put that on the post. I will if there is a mention of suicide though.

We all have struggles in life, mine has been with depression.

I write about that, life as a writer(unpublished as of summer 2018), and being a dad.

 

I hope you’ll shatter some of your own delusions while you follow or subscribe to my blog, Delusions of Ink.

  1. Brian, small typo in this sentence: Our minds create who we are, but it’s up to us do fix the delusions and be who we want to be. I think you meant to write to fix, not do fix. 🙂

    My name is Adam. I live in Devon, England with Amy & our two boys Devon and Torr.

    I want to wish you brilliance & success with your writing. Follow your passion as you are.

    About TM. I know about this subject. I learnt TM in 1990 @ 20 years of age.

    Only a flu once has stopped me using this every day.

    It is a simple technique given by the brilliant Maharishi.

    My personal strong recommendation about this is; meditate to live – always. After the allotted time, forget it & throw yourself into that Life. Writing, your kids, your wife etc.

    I have seen too many meditators who live to meditate. Where it is a cocoon & a security blanket – people who can’t quite face the diamond hardness of Life (it is tough & challenging for mostly everyone other than possibly the supremely enlightened).

    No matter what happens though keep your TM. Guru Dev & Maharishi knew their onions. This will clearly be seen by all in the World soon enough.

    Maharishi may have laughed a lot but he wasn’t kidding. Just because we can’t see the Tsunami doesn’t mean it isn’t coming.
