Writing as shaving with a dull razor...





Real writing... as opposed to this journal writing improvisation...
is a lot like shaving a full beard with an old, dull razor.

Having Kids?



Well, here goes... 

This is certain to be a post that will rub some of you the wrong way. I apologize in advance, and can only say that this is an important topic. Whether or not people like to hear about it, or if it is considered politically correct to address it...

Broken Hearts Are Made Of Stone



They say broken hearts are made of stone, and there may be something to this old adage.  I want to delve into this a bit, but I also want to engage with whoever might want to discuss heartbreak and how we grow numb to it over time.

Goal!



Oh yeah!

It is the most awesome thing in creation when an awakened mind finds something to focus on, and determines that the dream being conjured is good..

Crossroads


Well...


There are times in one's life where the stability and miserability one comes to expect in "normal" living----> vanish in thin air.

Mastery

Sunwukong by fuckorange

Like most of you, I am interested in... obsessed, perhaps, by the concept of mastery. There is truly nothing more breathtaking or inspiring than to witness a true master at work.  It matters not what their art may be, their utter genius makes a fan even of people who would normally be averse to the form.

East Meets West



As a natural sucker for mash-ups, hybrids, cross-pollination and the like, it should come as no surprise that I have been a lifelong fan of music that spans genres and mixes elements of things that have traditionally been rather isolated.  Truthfully, all of the major advances in music have come out of such melting-pot sensibilities.  Nearly all of modern music can be traced back to Congo Square in New Orleans where African slaves met European instruments and gave birth to jazz, blues, soul and all that descended from that heady mix.

Controlled Folly




All action and participation in illusion is folly.

So said Don Juan (Matus)...
                     and Siddartha Guatama, more or less...

If either of those two pillars of humanity actually existed.

Here Comes The Sun


There is something incredibly epic about staying up all night and watching the sun rise.

Good For Your Soul







Music is good for the soul.


Seriously.  
Without it, this place would be a mess...
Can you imagine?

Omnientheogenic Bliss




OMNIENTHEOGENIC BLISS
Intelligent Autopoiesis & Spiritual Constructivism

"Intelligence organizes the world by organizing itself." - Jean Piaget in "La construction du réel chez l'enfant" (1937)

I would like to start a discussion on two subjects that seem abstract, and are yet among the most important and 'thought about' aspects of our human existence.  

Happiness & Divinity
