“Abstract Expressions Created and Expressed With, From, and By the Universe”
Nick Nelson started living in California’s Central Coast after the Marines in 2006. Later, he moved up North; receiving a Literature degree from San Francisco State University and reading more books, while writing for various columns, online magazines, and progressive literary forums, he became a self proclaimed writer.
On July 18, 2011 in the dark hours before dawn near the famous and now former and closed Beach Blankets and Babylon Playhouse in the North Beach district of San Francisco, he fell off a building; five and a half stories, fifty-eight feet onto the pavement in the dark alley an earshot echo away from the people that saved his life. So dying, didn’t, dying and stayed didn’t, two weeks after waking from his coma, and one year-still recovering, still surviving, still learning again- he moved back to San Francisco to graduate, and try again.
Then again, and again and again he became a lucrative venture capitalist, a peripatetic wanderer, an aspiring artisanal but published independent. And recently, a Visual Artist; a new medium for Nick, but a FUn one(with a capital F U) Because of the irony in it all; moments when he should have smiled when he cried, when he should have looked for grace over thinking it was hopeless. Or when he should have said No! when a compromise was made, is just another reminder of the endless supply of laughter available to him. And according to some and a great many, its a providential laughter, that humor from the heavens we call providence; ‘Perfect Laughter,’ the only ‘Good Fight there is.’ Which is FUnny(with the most pious intent of course) because these days he can’t stop laughing. Or now that he found a way to create the very Skies and heaven he’s been praying to all along maybe in his art (the gift of creation) he won’t. At least that’s what he tells himself while, still, laughing today… And that’s half the battle.
