Typewriter Series #711 by Tyler Knott Gregson
Lots of emails coming in again asking if I can open the doors for another Typewriter Series Sale :) I am so happy everyone likes doing this, and I am more than happy to do them. So, the sale is back on!
www.tylerknott.com/PrintSale for more information.
Book Update: I have heard rumors that it’s up for pre-sale on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, but I will need to check with my agent and Penguin/Perigee to make sure all is ready to go! More soon!
Hop on the train and never look back, wave off the things you never needed to pack. Fill up your life with memories so sweet, feel far off roads under the souls of your feet. (at Union Station)

Text for Tired Eyes:
There’s a gift I can give to you even though you’re not the gift loving type.
It’s a small offering a single contribution a wrapper-free and bow-less box
filled with something you never asked for but maybe you’ve always needed.
This is my gift to you:
I’ll be the eyes to see what you don’t and I’ll be the voice that fills the ears
deaf to those things for too many nights and too many days that followed.
This is my tribute to all you don’t see, to the parentheses around your smile
and the way laughter slithers from your lips and curls the corners of your mouth
like they’re tied to hidden kites flying in hidden skies.
Open your eyes.
This is to how your feet throw heat and warm mine and how the sensation of calm
can literally travel from your fingertip to my fingertips and up my arms
into my chest. How the sight of you catching sight of me is enough to set
my heart sprinting. To the sheer volume of that heart’s beating and the way
it fills the room with noise like the sound of flags flapping in the wind,
or broken songs beating through broken speakers, this is to all you don’t see,
Open your eyes.
This is to the sound of my name in your mouth the way it dances off your tongue
and leapfrogs through the air to find me again. To the whispers and the screams,
and the muted mumblings of your tired morning voice and the words
you don’t remember saying and the ones you do. This is to the heart
that’s too big for your body and to your body that’s too small to hold
all your dreams. To the ballet of beauty that fills the empty moments of your
sleeping and the sunlight that paints your face to pull you from it.
Open your eyes.
I’ll be the eyes to see what you can’t the constellations of freckles
and beauty marks and the forgotten scars from forgotten wounds.
The hair that hangs like curtains over the windows of your eyes and the light
that streams in from behind them from some other place better than here
the beckons me to follow. To the pace of your breath and the warmth of it
on my cheeks and to the tracing of fingers on the valleys of my back.
This is my gift to you, and you’re not the gift loving type.
A tribute to the details you forget to notice and picture they create.
This is to you, all of you and what you are to all of me to the we to the
me you help create and shape and heal and change for all the right reasons
at all the right times.
Open your eyes.

Man it would’ve been cool to be alive when creatures like this walked around the planet. I would’ve only probably lasted a day or two, but those would have been the coolest two days ever.
I might look like a complete goofball in this photo, but at least I look like a kind goofball. This week, the wonderful KIND Campaign and @Sevenly have teamed up to spread kindness and help erase a major problem all over the country, and a hot issue in the news and media as of late: Bullying. Kids everywhere are affected, and it’s time it stopped.

Ten years ago, I never thought I would have a job that sent me all over the world. I never thought I would see so many of the things that I am seeing. I never thought I would meet so many wonderful people. Wanderlust is a beautiful and strange thing, and when it takes hold of you, everything changes. Here is the stunning Capitol Rotunda, part of the rad private tour that @haileybec so graciously gave us. Thank you, again!
