Mental Gridlock exists as a space in which I, Ryan, post observations, ruminations, conjecture, limericks, editorials, meanderings, and the occasional epic poem for the purpose of alleviating the cacophony contained within my oft introspective mind.
This a blog about the tiny idiosyncrasies inherent in the everyday, appreciating the crust on bread, and leading an exploratory life by overcoming (and often poking fun at) the many barriers imposed by the self and society.
The title, Mental Gridlock, implies all of this, but the aim of this blog is not to create confusion, but to gain understanding. This will be achieved though unpacking the piecemeal patchwork of idle thought and visceral experience (as well as everything in between) that constitutes being a human being.
Thank you for indulging me.
