Oh Say Can You See?

This morning I was still reflecting on last night’s Creationism vs Evolution debate between Bill Nye &  Ken Ham. It was great, not because i think each gentleman showed their truest colors, but because of the freedom of our culture; opposing view points can co-exist, whether or not they’re copacetic. I don’t believe either person has all the answers for any person. I don’t believe the Bible is literal to a T. I believe both arguments reach dead-ends. I believe there can be a mutual cohabitation of science and religion, and believing in one doesn’t have to negate the other. You can freely not give a damn about what either one says, too. If I met you in person, I’d probably consider you … Read More

I went to a lecture this week on luck. Highlighted were the 4 behaviors lucky people exhibit: 1. Lucky people take advantage of their chance opportunities. 2. Lucky people listen to their instincts and intuition. 3. Lucky people expect good luck. 4. Lucky people change bad luck into good luck. I would say luck is interchangeable with having a positive perspective; and the expectations or benefits of luck are derived from visualization. My best decisions have usually been from a place of instinct and gut reactions. I do generally expect that things will work out, and well, they have and do.

I didn’t think I was ever going to get a good night’s sleep in this past three week stretch. 4-hour pockets do not suffice. My hang-up was in anxiousness and excitement; not the solemn, worry induced kind of insomnia. Music is on the forefront of my mind and days in the studio lead to nights looping lyrics and planning next steps in my mind. The best kind of exhaustion i could ask for, and i haven’t even gotten to the nightly performances yet! Geez, the cliché ‘it’s all about the journey..’ rings a bit true. Regarding this blog, here’s a bit of insight into my personality: when I feel overwhelmed i just shut down. I’ve tried to highlight a variety … Read More

It’s the end of the year, and you know what that means, lists! Best this, best that, movies, music, videos, gadgets, and apps, etc… They’re fun and often useless. The people which care about any one particular category already know what the top picks are, though; each of us stays attentive to what we are interested in throughout the whole year. I read the books i anticipated coming out. I downloaded the albums i was anxious for… Do you like ‘end of year’ list? One post which recently caught my attention was a survey done on the most hated word. I love the perfect precision of words. I love how they can sound similar but have entirely different meanings, like … Read More

The Advantage

In Malcolm Gladwell’s latest book, David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants he illuminates many ways in which the underdog actually has the upper hand. ‘The book is about what happens when ordinary people confront giants. ‘Giants’ are powerful opponents such as oppression, misfortune, and disabilities.’ As often is the case, it’s all about perspective; and certainly after reading this book, it’s all about the details. What we perceive as being a weakness can be used as an advantage. An example (I thought of) is the strengthening of all other faculties when one is shut down or useless, think Stevie Wonder’s music acumen even though blind. Or when we break a limb, we are forced to … Read More
