Digital selfie

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As technology increasingly becomes one of humanity’s core imperatives, how we interact with each other has changed significantly. Once upon a time, sharing ideas required one being physically interacting with another on SOME level, but these days our interactions just need the appropriate device. The devices get more complicated, ironically causing the interactions to be […]

Found some kindling

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_empty_space][blockquote type=”blockquote_line” align=”center” width=”full”]Fire is an emblematic representation of life itself. It is an ever changing mixture of creation and destruction. It can provide comfort while instilling fear. It can rage uncontrolled, or be used with precise finesse.

Standing up for what is right

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I have never voted before. I never even registered to vote. Many people say this means I have no right to complain  about what goes on in our society, since I don’t participate in the decision-making process. I wholeheartedly disagree. Not voting IS a vote.

Do NOT read this post!

The question of compassion #1000Speak

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] As I wander life in search of meaning, I frequently have to call on a mysterious entity I call The Wise Man. He is essentially a manifestation of epiphany, wisdom in the form of a human that helps me to … UNDERSTAND. Often his help comes in times of personal need, other times he […]

Walk a mile in my shoes … or better yet in my mind

It is odd how a journey that was supposed to be of the feet has recently entered the realm of the metaphysical. This is part of the reason I have not shared much recently. My physical walk-about has temporarily stalled in Ohio (still not quite sure how I ended up here), but my mental … […]

Re-reflecting on reflections

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] My journey of late has become more metaphysical than physical. Who knew that would be the more painful adventure? I love mirrors. Well, to be more accurate, I love reflective surfaces. To me they are like gateways to other worlds; doorways to What If. They are spark plugs for the imagination engine … ready […]
