I Think Thoughts

I’m constantly questioned about my source of motivation and my answer is always “nature”. I understand why people wonder what inspires me but I always wonder why they themselves aren’t inspired. We all get to a point on the path of attaining knowledge where you ask yourself “what is it all worth?” and all sorts of ideas run through your mind. Will I get married? Do I want children? Where will we live? Do I want to get serious now? Is the goal that I’m aiming for even the right thing for me? These questions and so much more circle your mind and no matter how much you try to evade these thoughts they always fight their way back to the front of your mind. They pop up when you are at work, the commentator talks about it during the game, the words float in your cereal and soup until you are convinced that you are going out of your mind.

When I feel like this I turn to a natural force to think and find my peace. I think in a tree, I sleep in the clouds, I dance in the rain; I love the rain. Something as simple as walking in the park can be helpful to me but that’s just how I find my peace. We all have to find our own peace b/c this world we live in is out of balance so there is no external peace. Don’t kill yourself; just find your inner peace.

I Wonder...

Heath “The Joker” Ledger

There once was a time when even madmen dressed as gentlemen. I wonder if these times of which I speak will ever return.



Cocktail Killer

Last night I was introduced to Polyvore by one of L.I.M’s (Laboratory Institute of Merchandising) best & in the same instance challenged to a showdown. Through Polyvore you can create sets of outfits, putting together pieces drawn from their seemingly endless library of articles of clothing beginning with nothing more than a clean slate and a Polyvore search engine. For some strange reason the young lady that challenged me felt assured that she would win; big mistake.

The way I won is simple, men get dressed for women and women get dressed for men so naturally women know what they like to see men in and men know what they like to see women in.

The Foundation

I commend all of the single parents that do everything in their power to give their child the best opportunity to succeed. I respect those that do without so that their children can have. I honor every sacrifice made so that your child can have a future that you could only dream of; however it is not enough.

Children are taught by the words, ideas and actions that they internalize. So if a child watches a family on tv consisting of: a mother, a father, a son, a daughter and a dog in a three story house he may start to wonder why he/ she doesn’t know his/ her father, mother works so much that he/ she is always with his/ her aunt, lives in a project building and the only pets the family has is the roaches that they all have become accustomed to seeing. As time goes on these thoughts don’t go away, they harbor and grow into bigger ideas. Eventually the child comes to realize that most of the images depicted on tv aren’t real therefore categorizing his/ her earliest memories of a family as fiction and internalizing his/ her own situation as reality and sadly this creates a cycle until someone breaks the chain; will it be you?
