HAVE FUN HAVING FUN

Recently and I had one of those “Oh yeah! / Ah-ha!” moments when this thought crossed my mind…HAVE FUN HAVING FUN.

I was talking with a friend who is 13 years younger than me and he was saying how people are always asking him what he wants to do with his life. He told me all he wants to do is skydive, snowboard, scuba dive, and party. (And who can blame him?!)

It was then that I thought to myself that the ultimate goal of a life well lived is to HAVE FUN HAVING FUN. So for now it is my new motto.  It makes me happy just to think about, and it makes me happy to share it with others. I hope this simple thought causes you to do something that celebrates your ability to appreciate your ability to celebrate appreciation.

May it inspire you to explore what your smile is for, forever more.

An army of oneness

It’s President’s Day and I am going to unveil my new shirt/sticker idea today with the hope that the Commander in Chief will someday see and understand.

My ultimate intention is that eventually not just the president but every soldier on either side of any war will see this image and realize that as separate as we may seem we are really all reflections of each other.

We could end every war before its begun if only the ones with the guns would see that we are one, and “you are me”.

Is THIS love???

fuck dynasty

Here we are on another Valentine’s Day, the Queen of the materialistic bullshit holidays. It’s the one holiday that almost everybody acknowledges was created by Madison Avenue scumbags in order to sell cards and flowers and candy. It is the ‘love’ holiday where we are supposed to go out on expensive dates and buy diamonds in order to prove that we love and are loved.

Christmas (the King of all materialistic bullshit holidays) was a mere 7 weeks ago. Didn’t people shower their loved ones with unnecessary gifts back then in order to prove that they were loved and in love? Don’t those Christmas gifts last more than 7 weeks? Apparently not. The boys at Holiday Control have decided to use their operant conditioning on the unquestioning masses in order to stoke the fires of capitalism and get people to buy more useless crap in mid February. But this time instead of things being red and green things are red and PINK.

The thing that bothers me about Christmas (namely that holiday cheer and ‘good will towards men’ are only around for a few weeks in December) is the same thing that bothers me about Valentine’s Day. In my world every single day is a day to celebrate love, not just on the day in February when the candy aisle tells me to.

My partner and I shower each other with love everyday of our lives, not just on publicly sanctioned, court mandated, materialistic bullshit holidays shoved down our throats by the social engineers of our so called society.

We the people should boycott these ridiculous excuses for ‘traditions’. Let’s unite and take back control of our culture. We must forsake these fake holidays and make every day a Holy Day.

I’m not childless, I’m childFREE!

I am about to turn 40, and I have no children. Not only do I not have any children, I went so far as to have myself sterilized to ensure that I will not be having any children. People with kids ask me all the time if I have kids and I say no, this then triggers the apparently inevitable question “Why don’t you want to have children?”

Well…

1. I just don’t want to have children. Period. I don’t want to deal with the hassle and the mess, and the responsibility. I’ve never had a pet, why would I have a kid?!

2. I want to be able to do whatever I want whenever I want for the rest of my life. If the time ever comes when I want to shape young minds I will either become a teacher, a coach, or adopt.

3. I think this is a pretty shitty world to bring a child into. Don’t get me wrong, I have the utmost love and gratitude for the natural world and the glorious wonder that is the universe I live in, however I also know way too much about the way that humanity is destroying this planet to feel like bringing a child to it. We are poisoning the water, destroying the trees, genetically modifying the food, tinkering with the atmosphere and killing off species after species everyday.  Why would I want to have a child in a world that will have no tigers or blue whales? Why would I bring a child to a world so overpopulated with people that humanity itself has become an endangered species?

4. There are enough people on the planet as it is. It seems to me like we need less people nowadays and I think that not having children is the most GREEN thing a human can do.

5. I will not supply one more wage slave for the millitary-industrial-corporate nightmare that is human society. I will not bring another whore to the capitalist gangbang. I wont have a child and then tell it to get a job because you have to work to make (fake) money in order to live on this planet. They say the only two things that are certain in life are death and taxes, well I guess I got them on that one. I will not be the cause of any more death or taxes and that is for certain.

The list could go on and on, but mostly the main reason is number 1. I just don’t want to deal with it.

I know it is like the all-too prophetic movie Idiocracy when smart people who don’t breed are out numbered by dumb people who do, but the fact is that it makes no sense to have a kid without really putting some serious thought into it. The question is not “why don’t you want to have children?”, the question is “why DO you want to have children?”. People should at least have to write out an answer that question before being allowed to have a kid. There should be some sort of test. You have to pass a test to drive a car, you have to fill out paperwork to buy a gun, but any two dipshits can squirt out a kid whenever they want. People act like having a kid is hard, but its the easiest thing in the world to do. Insert tab A into slot B. Raising a kid is the difficult part and unless you are ready for that commitment you should not be having kids. That’s all there is to it.

In writing this out I have probably put more thought into why I don’t want to have kids than most people put into why exactly they do want to have kids.

Ultimately, for me it comes back to reason number 1. I just don’t want the responsibility. I am not childless, I am childFREE!

The journal of a thousand entries begins with THE SECOND STEP

They say that the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, but the way I look at it the journey doesn’t begin until you take THE SECOND STEP.

It is easy to take a first step in any direction, but unless you pick up and move your other foot you are basically just shifting your weight around. With that second step you commit to a direction and move away from where you started. With the second step your journey has truly begun.

FINALLY, it begins!

Sometimes it seems like the hardest thing to do is to take that first step. For too long I have been either too lazy or afraid to get this blog rolling, but now I am taking my creative destiny into my own hands (well, fingertips). I have so much to say and quite simply, if I don’t express myself who will?!

I am not sure what to expect from all this, and I think that has been a part of what has kept me from starting to write a blog. I don’t know exactly how to make this site look amazing yet, but that is no excuse not to begin to learn.

So the time has come to join the world of wordpress. The time has come to make a habit out of speaking my truth. The time has come for me to reach out to the world and share how much I care about making a difference in my own unique way.

I am fortunate to have this opportunity to grow. Here we go…
