I’ve been slammed all week, crashing by 9:30 pm. Was asleep by 8 last night, no joke! Throwing this review up with much more on my mind honestly. Will rewind this week and speak on other things shortly. Just really loved last weekend’s trip and want to properly acknowledge it. When I leave town, or my context or my constant absorption routine, I realize how easy it is to be oblivious about the world. The basics; people being basic. There are so many things we can compartmentalize or flamingo. Head in the sand. I haven’t properly journaled in almost two weeks. If you aren’t journaling, it’s hard to document even a few days of travel, especially when it’s entirely about … Read More

Say to Say

Write to write, stream of thought: Been ‘cleaning house’ metaphorically and literally. I’ve actually always been a minimalist, since I was 7 or 8 -ask my mom. I would just give stuff away to my friends. ‘Oh you like that, here.’ Stuff is just stuff to clean. Unnecessary furniture pieces require unnecessary decorative pieces which inevitably collect dust, thus becoming a chore. A weight on how you use your time. And what is really being displayed? A feeling the object elicits (memory: items from travels or a gift) and/or an image projected, entirely purchased for design. I have both types, too, yes. I’m not trying to be an asshole, just making an observation worth considering. The author of this Tidying … Read More

Like the previous post hinted at, one extreme or the other: But, I genuinely feel that there are universal truths. The word cliché wouldn’t exist if we aren’t aloud to make broad strokes or generalizations about life. The word generalization wouldn’t exist or portend our survival if we can’t categorize things happening in our life. The problem is, when we proclaim something or someone definitive, we become personally labelled or pigeon-holed with extremes: racist, homophobe, left wing or right wing, anti-this and that (guns, military, female rights, etc…) One comment or title or protesting sign (generated by emotion more than intellect -let’s be honest) or our daily employment (for survive not passiom): none of this defines us solely.

It is fantastic that some girls-women have enough money to buy anything they desire and play dress up – ‘pretend model’, for posting on their social media sites, and thus encouraging other girls to go purchase the same brand name labels, for the subconscious sake of acceptance/conformity. Proven by the link liketoknow.it Even if not on social media, every woman has once stood in front of a closet full of clothes exasperated, ‘I have nothing to wear!’ WOW, what a string of thought, but this really is the sequence of events and psychology behind it. Commercialism and group-think, these are the bare-bone terms. (pun) I fall back on this Zen thought often: Would you want it if you didn’t know … Read More

How much do you show of yourself online? One may think they are private because they don’t partake in any social media; but every article you read, word you look up, illness you attempt to self-diagnose, thing you buy off Amazon or any! site…these are all little footprints defining you.
