Expectations

I’ll try to keep this under 60,000 words in light of the space constraints of this page. This subject, however, has been long avoided in my writing, because it pisses me off to a point where I rant uncontrollably and never really get to the point. Maybe with these constraints I can have some type…

We want it all

We need to have IT. Food, shelter, human interaction, love, empathy, a sense of self worth and the knowledge that we are not alone. Most of us lack something in that list. We are so busy seeking the other IT that we forget the importance of our basic needs for our incessant wants. Yesterday, I…

A thought 4

There is a primal connection between music, dance and love forcing us to transcend all differences that otherwise create the foundation of negative human behavior. We do not live in hate and fear when the beat of the drum syncs with the beat of the heart. We do not seek war when the strum of…

Are we a product, a mass of overloaded matter placed in a box, sides held tightly by embracing ideas of must have, must be, must do? If we break down the walls, will we be a product of ignorance to will do, will do, will do, what is best for all living creatures? Can we…
