About this title

Synopsis:

EVERYTHING HAPPENS TODAY, opens in the purgatory of the main character's young life. He has been shipped from the Far East in a full body cast, a USAF "casualty" with no war to blame it on. The time in the end of the 1950's when American is in a pivotal time of its existence, and this "patient" is a victim of this turmoil and himself. Up until now, he has lived a well-masked life of fear, but has been "good, holy, and miserable as all hell," He is confused as to whether "everlasting life" is a reward, or a punishment. Away from the supports of home, he has been a "runner" who can't identify what's chasing him into bottles and beds and getting no satifaction from either. "If you run fast enough, you will meet yourself coming around a corner," his father warned him to no avail. Confined to a hospital in a military hospital, he has nowhere to run anymore, except inside and back out again. This morphine moon rides (every four hours) are a growth-cycle odessey of self discovery as memories become more medicinal than the medicines. We are at the end of his ninth month of hospitalization. there are basically five "dreams"" (1) "The Other Side of Everything," (2) "Flyboy in the Honey Hole," (3) "Casuality of the Peace," (4) Blackberries in a Taiwanese Mirror," and (5) "Holes, Door Knocks, and Magic Bricks." Then, there is the "Wake Up/Watcher at the Window."
