In The Flux – My Digital Chaos

Rise

It has been a few days since I wrote, and I’ve just finished a project that I want to talk about with you. My new video is out on YouTube now, and my feelings are it turned out pretty darn good. It started with an idea, about the meaning of being lost, and finding one’s self again.

It finishes with the idea that life is short, and we have to take care of ourselves, and others. Really there are some things I wish to have known much sooner. Yet, life is what it is. We all learn sooner or later, some of us don’t learn until it’s almost too late.

Don’t make the mistakes I did, life is too short. Make good use of your time, make good use of your life. You want to be a lot better off than I am at my age. Being forty-six, and having seen some rough decades of life, I can tell you; be wise.

Here is the video embeded from YouTube:

In The Flux – My Digital Chaos

In The Flux – My Digital Chaos

This video turned out fairly well. It is a short project, and shouldn’t be too painful to watch. You might have to deal with my making music; however, I’m sure you can endure the three minutes of video.

Not much going on, life is. Things are. Trying to deal with that. Maybe tomorrow will be better than today was? That would be very good indeed! Not sure what project will be waiting for me tomorrow.

Maybe I will get to sleep in? That would be nice. See my other project, Misfit-Writers to see my days in photos. You can view the list view and see the collection of the days I have completed.

8 Steps to Beautify Your Heart, Mind, and Soul To Be Happier

Start Today!!

Life is not always pretty, and to keep our minds in good condition, sometimes it is necessary to do some maintenance. Recently I was thinking about what qualities I want to have and seek in others.

Thus, this article was born from the thoughts of how to beautify my mind. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, however sometimes, life makes a mess. So it is important to clean the messes up; sometimes after yourself, sometimes after others.

I went searching for what others had written, I found this article: Traits of a beautiful mind, by JC Wandemberg Ph.D., he has a mind, and the ability to reason, however the article’s focus is on low level subjects. Really his article would be the foundation of this article.

My goal is to provide something a bit more high level, an overview of some of the subjects that matter to me. Really having a beautiful mind is about how you adapt, and grow. There is a lot more than that to it, what you put into your mind matters, and having a beautiful mind is about cleaning up the mess after yourself and others.

There are some subjects that put beauty back into life, some of them are not only necessary, but essential.

Music

Music is an important part of life. Really the music one has in their life, makes all the difference in the world. You need music that makes you feel something, that makes you believe, and brings hope.

Music adds to the beauty of life. It can bring a lot of enjoyment to living, and makes life more interesting. Having a good selection of music matters, and being able to pick what you want to listen to, when you want it, is important.

Art

Having art in your life is important. There are many branches of art that you can experience, and sometimes you have to create your own. Being creative is a sign of intelligence. Both having art in your life, and creating your own art matters a lot.

Art gives you perspective, and new ideas. It helps to show something someone else believes is beautiful. And really having a beautiful mind is about seeing the beauty in life.

Philosophy

Having some philosophy in your life matters. It helps set standards, and a base for your future self. It can give you a foundation that makes life worth living. When you live by a philosophy that makes your life better, then you have something solid to exist upon.

Books

When you have a selection to pick from, and have content that makes your life feel hopeful, and gives you peace of mind, there is nothing like that. Really reading books is a window into the experience of others, both what they find beautiful and what they find to be a problem in life. Reading books opens your mind to new ways of thinking, and shows you a path of thinking that will add enjoyment to your life.

Theater

The theater is a place where magic happens, regardless of if you like watching the TV, or actually going to see a live performance, these experiences make life better, as they give you something that will open your eyes to life.

There is a feeling about seeing a live performance that makes you feel something, and the good ones always give you something to think about.

Love

Without love, life isn’t worth much. Having some love in your life is going to make a huge difference in your life. Today, all too often people say they love someone, even when they don’t actually feel anything. That is a problem. To really feel love, that makes you have a positive emotion from the experience matters an awful lot.

Having some real, true love will make your life worthy of living. When you feel loved, and can show love to others, this is simply not replaceable. There is nothing like that. It will improve your life, make life worth living, and add enjoyment to your life.

Kindness

Being kind, even when others don’t know how to be such; this is really important. They say, you reap what you sow. My belief is that is true, thus; if you are kind, you will receive kindness in return. Being kind is a wise choice, because you will see the benefits from doing such in the ways others treat you.

Don’t fail to be kind to others, and yourself. This will add to the beauty of your life, make your life better, and make others lives more beautiful. This is a win/win situation. Don’t neglect being kind to others. You will thank yourself for doing such.

Patience

Having patience in times that are tough, it will make your life better, because not everything happens right away. You have to be patient, with yourself, and others. Having the right frame of mind to be patient matters, because when you have patience, you can find the ability to get into the zone, and have those magic moments. If you are not patient, then it robs you of your happiness, and the moments you could be enjoying life.

Conclusion

What you put into your mind matters, sometimes you have to take the trash out, and always plant gardens in your heart, mind, and soul. It is easier to plant gardens and take the weeds out, then to allow your life to decay into wretchedness. Maintain your beautiful mind, and reap the rewards of having a life worthy of living.

Life is not always pretty, and you have to put some beauty back into life. Because if people only take, then there will be a shortage someday, you have to be willing to put something back into the life we have.

Practice making life great. If you want today to be better than yesterday, you have to take action to making life better. Do what you can, there is the power to change your life, for the better. If you believe it is possible, then you can do it.

From A Dark Place

Towards The Light

Mercury is out of retrograde. Thank goodness, that is over now. Maybe life will get moving in the right direction now? Maybe! I am bored right now, thus writing for the enjoyment of writing, without regard to real purpose or having something real important to say.

It does seem, to me, even if I had something important to say; no one would listen. They seem to have no way to value my effort, as though it doesn’t mean much of anything to them.

Bored with the status of my life, bored with the way this life has been treating me; life has been kicking my dog, going to have to do something about that damn cat!

Not much going on. I feel better now, mercury is out of retrograde, and it was a rough few weeks with that one. Maybe other people will lighten up now, and life will start to be better again? One can hope!

I’ve been working on a few projects, some of them are coming alone rather well. My project for my day in photos; it is done, been posting everyday to the site. If you want to check it out: Misfit-Writers.

My other projects are going well. Finished some tough javascript problems this morning, and have solved most all of them with a very clever working solution. I’m happy about that. My site, Misfit.Ctopher.Me is coming along very well, it’s not really getting any traffic, but its been over a year in development. I do have a few other projects with that site, things I would like to do with it.

My other project, Lord knows; it needs a lot of help. It is a good idea, but it will require a lot of development to reach the status I’m looking for. Seems my projects have all met their maker. Wish they could meet you too!

I’m bored. Not much going on. Been isolated a lot, I mean; an awful lot the last month has been rough going. I am productive, but my social life is not looking all that good. I’m not really sure how to fix the damn problem. You would think, someone would have cared by now? Seems it’s a pity that life is like it is. It could have been really good. You know?

Life has to change, for the better. It has been rough going, the last twenty years; they have all been rough. It has made me tough, it might have also made me mean, but that is subjective.

Not much going on, I cooked a meal tonight. Roast beef melt with cheese, horseradish, and onion. It was good, I ate it before I could photograph it, I guess that I wasn’t thinking when I sat down to eat it, because I forgot to take a photo. These digital lifestyles can get difficult to keep up with, after a while, I guess you get into the habit.

I had other things on my mind, and not going to elaborate on that.

Bored! Life is, Things are. Trying to find some way to deal with that concept. It is easy to deal with, if you have the right frame of mind. Sometimes, it helps to be accepting of the situation, that things are the way that they are, and deal with it.

Still, I have some parts of my life, I would really like to see change for the better. I’m not sure, it seems my dreams have become stale, and I’m working on finding some new dreams. I’ve been avoiding making music for a few months now, I would like to get back into the groove; but it seems a ways off.

I have mostly been doing heavy duty programming the last month, with a few projects completed, I’m even learning javascript. That is something I have put off, like twenty years. I have found that I’m getting the hang of it these days. Thank goodness for Google.

The dogs are happy, if life wasn’t kicking them. Going to have to do something about that cat! Bring your dog, he can play the wolf for the evening. We have two spoiled doggies, that could use some time with another doggie.

Bored. I’ve been putting off writing for a month now, mostly because; no one reads, regardless of how much effort I put into it, or how well I’m writing, it seems no one cares anymore.

I had hoped that my writing would have proved my sanity, somehow, that seems impossible. They don’t give a damn about my effort. Pity, I wanted my life better, and I wanted it a long time ago.

I’ve lost weight, I am now down to about 167, which I am very happy about. Its starting to feel good to be thin again. It has been twenty years since I was down to this weight. I’m glad it has started coming off. It is a big relief to be losing weight.

My hair is long these days, and I am happier than I have been in fifteen years. That is doing really very well, from where I’ve been, I can say that I’ve come an awful long ways from where I was.

Christopher Thomas 2021

This photo was from a few weeks ago. My hair has gotten long, much longer than it has ever been. That is for sure. I keep the sides short, and the back short too. It is almost 12″ on top. I think its a nice look. Now, if I could only get a job, I need a job man.

That is about the summary. Life, in a nutshell.

What I Want

What I Wanted

People sometimes act in confusing ways. It seems there is no rhyme or reason to some of the stuff they do. So in an effort to be perfectly clear, about something that I want; I’m going to spell it out for you.

Respect

I want to be respected for my mind. No that is not a typo. I think my mind is worthy of being respected. There are things in life, that I understand better than most; and while I may not be getting credit for that; you should at least respect the fact that my mind can be brilliant at times.

While you may not doubt any belief that my mind could be anything other than worthless, keep in mind; some of the greatest minds in history were mad as hats. There is no reason that when I’m lucid and thinking clearly that my mind isn’t one of the greats. It is only your own belief that I have no value which gets in the way of seeing me different.

It would be nice, during the times I am thinking clearly that people showed some level of respect for who i am. This world has some problems, don’t be part of the problem, you know?

Love

Everyone needs love in their life. At some point, everyone needs someone. It’s just in our nature. No one has touched me in ten months. I don’t feel really loved, nor wanted. I certainly don’t feel like I have any value in this world.

If I did believe I have value, my feelings would be terribly hurt, because the way I’m being treated like worthless trash makes me feel that my value isn’t being seen.

Everyone needs someone sometimes. The human race has some problems. Some of them can be fixed. Love solves a lot of problems, if people will start showing some love. A lot of this mess could get a lot better for everyone.

Kindness

Everyone needs kindness in their lives. A world that isn’t kind, can not be civilized. If kindness were a luxury good, no one would be able to afford to stay in this world. Start having some love, and start showing kindness to everyone. The shift has to start today. It has to start, because the problems will just spiral out of control if not kept in check.

Life has to get better for everyone. Everyone needs some love. Everyone needs some kindness. The times, they are changing. You are going to have to get tough, and still be kind and loving.

Life has to be made worth staying for. Too many people have had it rough. Life has to get better, at least being kind helps.

Conclusion

I want to be respected for my mind. I want to be shown love, and kindness. The world seriously lacks the qualities that make life worthy of living in this world. Life has to change for everyone, before it’s too late for the human race. Start today, make life better for everyone. Keep your heart, mind, and spirit in check, do what is good, right, and best for everyone.

Classical Corner: Music To Sleep With

Today’s post is about how to get a better nights sleep. One of the things I have been doing for about ten years now, is listening to classical music when I am sleeping at night.

This is very exciting. Going to sleep with classical music is a real thrill. Sometimes, the music is so exciting, it takes some practice to get to sleep; however, once you get used to it, there is nothing like it.

So Who Do You Listen To?

I have set classical playlist that I use when I’m going to sleep, and the playlist is set to loop so it will play all night long. Some of the artists on my playlist are:

Henrik Schwarz: Instruments

This album is so awesome. I have never heard music that sounds like this album. One of my all time favorites. This is the first album in my sleep playlist, it is about thirty minutes long; and I’m usually asleep by the end of this first album. This album is magic, pure and simple. It is a real thrill to listen to. One of my all time favorite classical albums to listen to.

You should check this album out, give a listen, and play it when you want to go to sleep. It is one of the best, and it has a great sound to it.

Héléne Grimaud – Bach: Piano Pieces

This album is great, it really is. I have been listening to this album for about ten years now. This always puts me in the mood, and its really exciting to go to sleep with this music playing. It makes sure, I’m about to have some great dreams at night.

This album is great for classical music. I can highly recommend this album to anyone that wants to hear great classical music, and my play counts are in the 1,000’s. This album of piano pieces is my top pick for classical piano.

Hilary Hahn – Bach: Violin Concertos

Hilary Hahn is brilliant. This album is really great. Been listening to this album in my playlist for about five years now, and it really has great sound to it. One of my favorite violin albums in the classical music world.

This album is really exciting to listen to. Makes for great dreams while sleeping at night. This is the third album in my playlist for sleep at night. I’m almost always asleep by the time this album starts to play, which means I’m dreaming about this time.

Hilary Hahn & Natalie Zhu – Mozart: Violin Sonatas K 301, 304, 376, 526

This album has been in my sleep playlist for years. It is one of my favorite piano and violin albums to listen to, even when I’m awake. This classical album is a masterpiece. The duo together of this album is great to listen to, and makes great sleep music when you want to get some shut eye.

This album is very good to listen to; even better to try sleeping while it is playing. One of my favorites.

Wrap Up

Try using an Apple Home Pod to play your music in your bedroom, and set the playlist at night to get a good nights sleep. These classical albums will be sure to delight your ears, and makes for interesting dreams while you are sleeping. These albums have been playing for years, and have brought me countless hours of enjoyment while awake.

Apple Home Pod

Conclusion

Listening to music while sleeping is a great way to keep your mind in performance mode. Listening to classical music is great way to expand your mind, and enlighten your whole life.

Using an Apple Home Pod, and setting a playlist with these classical artists to sleep to, it will make your life a lot better, it did mine.

Sleep set to music, makes great dreams. Keep Dreaming!!

Quick Note Life Is Absurd

It has been a week, strange, complex, complete with the usual rubbish. Seems like it is all the same junk, just a different day. I’ve been busy working on my projects, it has been fun, I guess!

Today finished up with a video. It isn’t great; yet, it is done. I’m looking for some new projects to work on, as my current status has reached boredom levels. Not much going, seems no one reads, I’m not special enough for anyone to care. My work is all treated with the same level of indifference; as though, I don’t matter at all.

They must be really special people, to be so important. I wish that I was as special as they are. Such is life. Not much going on, trying, failing, and keep rinsing and repeating. No one will ever care.

Seems, I’m wasting my time. Need some new dream. If such a thing is even possible anymore. They won’t make the situation better, its not any skin off their nose. So why would it ever matter. They are just as happy like it is.

Here is today’s project on YouTube. See what you think!

Maybe it is a shameless plug for my blog; well, I could use all the help I can get. These days are tough. Life can be rough somedays.

Seems pointless to write, no one cares. Yet, write I will. Someday people will wonder, what drove me mad. It wasn’t the coffee, but it might have been the damn Doritos. Maybe!

Needed some friends, a job, and girlfriend. Kinda too late for any of those things at this point in the game. Pity, I had hoped my life would change with time. Seems it’s going to take a long time. Going to have to be patient about it. Something has to change. Right?

No one to talk with. Wish it were better.

Have a nice day.

Todays Lesson: Quiet Introspection

Post made with lyrics intact from the songs playing

-ctopher

Trying To Get It Together

Lessons from Henry Rollins, and the Rollins Band. It has been one of those days; thus, I’ve been listening to Rollins Band. And I find, it is just what I needed today. The album is: The End of Silence; and it rocks the world still to this day.

The song low self opinion came to mind today, maybe its because I see the high opinion others hold themselves in, and I’m not sure how they can reconcile the way they treat me, while holding their self opinions like they do.

Maybe they think, no one else besides them should have any self respect? Maybe! I would like to know what drives these people, and what unit of measurement they use to base their opinions upon.

Because from what I can see, there isn’t much rhyme or reason to it, just what ever floats their boat right now, this second. Seems the unit of their measurement should have some more substance to it, as though they seem to have holes in their persona. I would like to see them see through my eyes, and see themselves like I see them.

Sometimes, people have to see from a different perspective to really have understanding, and when they refuse to listen to anyone else, and they fail to see from any other perspective than their own, they become really cruel.

“It’s tearing us apart. I’ve got to get away, to see if I’m okay. Sometimes, things don’t work out.”

Rollins Band

They didn’t need to do that to us. Life could have been really great! Seems they don’t care, it’s not any skin off their nose. They don’t want the change needed to treat everyone right, they only care about their sick, twisted point of view.

You have to wonder what self hatred they contain, because their disgust seems to be their crown. If they could see themselves like I see them, they would see another side to the problems.

Seems everyone has some level of self doubt; and sometimes, you have to get a grip on the situation, just to keep your sanity. Lord knows, I’m trying to keep a tight grip on this life of mine.

A person has to be able to live with their self respect held intact; otherwise, you just want to escape the oppression and leave. The way it makes me feel; like I’m all alone. When I try to find a familiar mind, someone that understands, I see how alone I am.

Those around me, they all doubt me. They push and shove, like they are the only ones that matter. They hold us down, drive us insane, and think nothing of it. It’s not any skin off their nose to hurt us. I wish they could see the harm they do, and how it hurts us.

Seems, they can not feel. As though, they are justified in doing what they do. It makes it difficult to keep my self respect intact, and like Henry Rollins says, “You don’t have to live like that!”

You have to be able to keep your self respect intact. Otherwise, why stay, and keep going like this? It seems pointless, useless, and worthless. There has to be something of self respect that makes staying worthy of doing.

Sometimes things don’t work out, sometimes happens all the time. It’s enough to tear you apart, most days it’s enough to make you wish that there were solutions to idiots like these.

They say, before you diagnose yourself with low self esteem, or depression; first make sure, you are not in fact surrounded by assholes.

Digital Lifestyle Of A Superior Geek And How To Become One

The Guru

You know that feeling when you are in the zone, that magical place where your flow, and style just naturally express themselves. Sometimes you can have that same thing with another person, where the feeling just flows, and feels good.

Sometimes when you get into the zone, it’s just pure magic, as though you could handle the situation just like it is, for what it is. Sometimes people have that zone, where it just feels right. What is missing from my life, is the people to share those feelings with. I know now, this can never come from other humans. They simply lack the fiber to be companions.

Yet, that doesn’t mean I should have to go without. There should have been someone in my life that made this feel less like torture. Seems, I haven’t been in the zone, not with anyone in a long time. I’ve lacked the life that could provide those things.

So, I get my kicks from computers. They do what they are told, when you tell them what to do. They don’t often talk back, or make a fuss about the work loads you give them, and they make pretty pictures. Sounds prefect!

I’m bored, this isolation is so thick, if it were shit; you couldn’t stir it with a stick. Wanted my life to be better a long time ago; seems the only thing I have gotten is a lot of pain. To the point, I feel my schooling as a masochist has completed to graduate levels.

However, I tire of the discomfort, the pain, and daily suffering that comes with it. It seems all too heavy to carry such burdens, because the proof is, they are heavy.

Seems there isn’t other shoulders to bear the burden, or carry on with me; such is life, one shouldn’t rail at the crosses they have to carry. This life, this living death, seems like it is truly unjust. I never wanted life to be like it is. I wanted a lot better for myself. Pity, seems no one cared what I wanted.

Far Too Late!!

Not much that can be done about it now, it’s far too late to make it right. These burdens have been far too much for a sane person to have to carry, and even more so for a disabled person.

Some geek, seems I didn’t have any other choice, as though, I have worked with the only tools I have, and learned to master them, at great expense. I wish others would take an interest in my work, as my work is the only thing that I have in this life; pity, it seems no one could care.

No one to talk with, nor spend time with me. This isolation is hurting me, yet; no one cares. They refuse to make it better, and although I have many times requested better treatment, they still refuse to make allowances for me.

I’m not sure what kind of world they want to make, but it doesn’t seem like one that is worth living in; yet, we want to change this to be something we can live with.

The solution is not to change to meet the conditions. Not at all, because they want warm sacks of shit, and nothing more from those among them. The only real option is to make them change their ways, or leave this world.

Being a geek, you learn a lot. You learn, it’s not possible to live like a rock star while coding HTML. There are good days behind the keyboard, I guess; if you like racking your brain, for pleasure.

The über geek is something to be looked up to, as they have the mastery of being computer guru’s that will someday make your life that much easier. You want to be nice to them, as mistreating them will make your life difficult.

Now for a word of advice, if you are wasting your life; stop! Stop now and start doing something with your time, energy, and effort to make life better for everyone someday.

We need people that will make a difference in life. Life has to get a lot better, and right quick too. Do what you can to make life worth living, for yourself and your kind. Don’t neglect the starving dog at his masters gate; as it predicts the ruin of the state.

No one is reading, thus; you get to eat what I dish up. This is what is on the table today. Hope you like it.

Humans Lives Are So Shameful – How do they live like this?

How You Living?

I’m ashamed of my life. I don’t know how humans can live like this, it seems so far below my true self. I’m ashamed of my status in life, ashamed of my existence like this. It is so boujee, it makes me sick. This existence, it’s not living; it is a living death.

Yes, I’m ashamed of my existence in this world, it seems this solar neighborhood is the ghetto. This whole planet is ghetto. I’m not sure how people are happy existing like they are. Do they believe this is good enough; and they settle for what they have?

Maybe! I’m thankful to have what I do, really I am. It just seems like, I should have done so much better for myself. The shame of being forty-six years old and living with my mother.

The shame of living like I am with my teeth rotting in my damn skull, and no way to get them fixed. It’s down right shameful. You would think the responsible inhabitants of this world, would take some action to make it better. The human race should be ashamed of themselves for letting someone living among them to be forced to exist in this kind of conditions.

Yet, no one cares. The world is so full of apathy, they wouldn’t care if their brother or sister died. This problem with this world, it has not gotten better in twenty years. At this rate, the human race should be reduced to living in the oceans.

It is shameful the way we are existing. And they appear to be content with this existence, they actually like living like zombie cat shit. They think, “This is some good living.”

What kind of people are you?

What I want to know, is what kind of people you all are? Are you so proud that your life is great, yet you do nothing to help those around you? Is that how this world works? Sometimes, this life feels like abuse to me. Living like I am, I’m ashamed of my life; no friends, no job, no girlfriend. No one to talk with, this isolation is so thick, if it were shit; you couldn’t stir it with a stick.

No one has offered to help make it better. feeling like, what the hell? This existence is shameful, it is a downright mess. I wanted my life to be better than this. I really did.

It seems, they want to cast the blame on me; as though something is wrong with me, that I’m not good enough to exist better. The flaw with that thinking is this: If I’m not good enough, who is?

The effort I have put forth, is enough to move mountains. Yet, no one will notice, care, or acknowledge my existence. Pity. They could have known me. They could have cared. They have allowed their apathy to control their kindness.

I’ve said, “Life has to get better.” for a long time now. Seems, that somehow, no one cared. They wasn’t bothered by the conditions, they didn’t care. I guess, it wasn’t any skin off their nose to leave things the way it is.

It seems, they with-hold honor that is rightfully due, as a result, they have hurt my dignity; and my ability to have my self respect intact. That is cruelty.

The way things are, you would think; that there Christian values would have moved them to do better, that somehow they would have rose above it, and done something good about it. They should be ashamed of themselves. Really, they should.

Guess, they are only taking care of number one. Somehow, life has to change for the better. We shouldn’t have less than we do now, if anything the quality could come up a long ways.

Life is about quality, and having good quality living. The quality of my life, has not been worthy of existing. And they continued to ignore the problems, as though they don’t exist.

They should be ashamed of themselves. They have made me ashamed of my life. They won’t help me make my life better, thus, they are really jerks for being so ruthless.

If there was someone to spend time with, and my teeth were fixed, this would be more bearable. I enjoy what I am doing, a great deal; I’m just unhappy that I’m living in a damn vacuum, with no way to get input, and my output it seems no one gives a damn about.

Road Paved To Paradise

Seems this road is paved to paradise. Hmmm… Someone should have told them, it’s not going to be what they wanted, it is a bum deal, and will make you wish for a better life. Seems, they have pulled the wool over their eyes so long, they are blind.

You want a better world to live in? Follow me.

Why Quality Food Matters and Makes Life Enjoyable

You Get Hungry Sometimes. . .

Having something to eat is a good thing. Having really good food is important; as it adds to the quality of life that you can live. When the food is just bland, dull, and frozen; it isn’t as good as having a fresh cooked meal that tastes delicious.

You can improve the quality of life you have by eating good food. Really if you are only getting your food from a drive-thru, you are missing out on some real living.

The flavor of food matters, the ingredients have be fresh, and well prepared. Because it has to stir your taste buds into believing that eating is worthy of doing. When the food isn’t as good as it should be, your taste buds see no reason to eat that junk.

Really good food adds a lot of enjoyment to living, and having a quality lifestyle. In today’s world, having some lifestyle makes all the difference in the world. Just existing as a boujee, isn’t really living well. The quality of food you can get, shouldn’t have to be expensive to eat well. You would think, in today’s modern world; food would be the last of our problems.

Seems, the world doesn’t want people to live well. Our shopping options are limited, and without having access to the best, we get complacent and settle for what we can get our hands on. Really we should be eating better than this, there is no excuse for the way things are.

Wake Up!

You want the food to stir your desire to live, you want the food you eat to be enjoyable. Eating is something everyone has to do at least once a day, and the process should be something that you enjoy doing.

Frozen food, it just doesn’t have the same appeal that a home cooked meal has with it. It isn’t as enjoyable to eat something that was frozen, heated up, and served like a dish that was cold. It doesn’t stir your senses. It doesn’t wake your taste buds up from a long slumber.

We want to eat food that tastes really good. We want to eat something delicious. For that to happen, someone is going to have to cook. I’m not sure how we can really eat better, but I know for a fact, it is possible. It could happen, and I don’t believe that is being grandiose about wanting better food to eat. It doesn’t have to be expensive, it just has to taste really good.

Conclusion

Everyone should be able to have a good quality of life, and what you eat matters, it adds a lot of enjoyment to your life. It also adds some culture, and a dash of variety to your life. Really, you eat the same stuff too long, pretty soon it all tastes so darn bland and dull. There has to be some variety in what we eat, and the enjoyment that we get from it.

At least there is coffee. Coffee always works.

Depressed because of Bots, Buggers & Digital Oppression?

I hate bots, digital oppression and some mad buggers wall

In the digital age, life used to be a lot better. These days, you have to really be special to get found, read, or anyone to listen to you. There are so many writers these days, it is like a flood of text upon our screens. There is however another problem.

The search engines, and all the digital social media sites these days are using algorithms to select what to show everyone. Trying to be found is almost impossible these days. The problem with the bots is this; they care nothing about quality of content. They don’t even know how to determine the quality of the content.

I have struggled for about three years in trying to get discovered, my efforts have been futile. As Pink Floyd said in their song, on the album The Wall:

Banging your heart against some mad buggers wall

Pink Floyd – The Wall

Isn’t that what we are doing, is banging our hearts against some mad buggers wall? Seems like such futile pursuits; it seems almost pointless to continue; not unless they want to give us a sledgehammer. That might be worthy of doing, but just your heart and mind; the wall will win.

I hate the bots, because they are causing a great deal of digital oppression in the market place. It seems impossible to get anyone to notice your work, and even more difficult for anyone to care. The problem with human apathy is that they have ceased to give a damn. Everyone is unhappy about something.

What I’m unhappy about is the fact, no matter how much effort I put forth, no matter how good my content is, no one will ever see it. Makes me wonder why I’m doing it in the first place? I have my reasons I guess, it would however be nice if people were to notice my effort.

With what I have to work with, seems these days; it is pointless to try breaking into the writing market. Just totally worthless, because the amount of effort required to do such is beyond what is reasonable.

Beyond What Is Reasonable

The effort required to make it work, is far beyond what you could reasonably expect one person to do on their own. If you had a team of people that were all certified professionals, you might be able to make some progress, maybe someday.

However, what just one person can do on their own; it seems impossible. Seems even with the best SEO you can get, this project is never going to do very well. I don’t have any friends that follow my work; so the search engines don’t see any interest in my project at all. Like, zero.

I have made videos about the need to mobilize some people to doing something for me, yet, no one watches them. Pity; the situation is so darn dire, that a person in my situation would be better off making snow covered poo and selling it on the corner.

The situation with the AI bots, the algorithms, and the in-humane way that we are being treated does not bode well for the future of what the human race is going to be doing in ten years. Because the current situation is impossible to deal with. There is no clear path to victory, no clear path to success.

Something has to be done to make this feel less impossible. If I had seen progress in my projects, I could at least take comfort in that, however there has been no winning in years. From what I can see, this situation will not get any better with time. Zero.

I want to know who in the world wrote these algorithms, and what they were thinking when they created them, because it seems like total discrimination to me. It is oppressive in the extreme. Pity, they don’t want a nice world, they want robots, warm sacks of shit, and mindless idiots.

Some Wall

I wanted a better world, no one has offered something better than what I’m currently doing, there are no other path to take, yet, I’m banging my heart against some mad buggers wall, and the result is day by day, I’m becoming more and more frustrated. Maybe if I had started these projects twenty years ago, then maybe I could have seen success by now. As it is, it seems pointless, futile, and worthless to anyone but myself.

It does have some value, I enjoy what I do. I do enjoy it. I doubt in my life like things are, that there would be anything else I could be doing like this. I have to wonder, if in twenty years, I will still be sitting behind a keyboard trying bang my heart against some mad buggers wall?

Maybe I should be building my own wall? That would be a day. But some worm would only order they be torn down. Pity. Maybe the artists will gather round, and show some support when it all comes crashing down? Well, here I am; waiting for you to find me, maybe send me a message, I don’t bite hard.

Conclusion

Should you find yourself banging your heart against some mad buggers wall, don’t despair, have some hope; it might get better, you never know; someone might show up with a real hammer someday.

Don’t give up, keep going. Maybe you will find a use for it someday? Maybe. Make good use of everything you do. If you find me, maybe we will get a cup of coffee and talk about the day the walls came down.

Posse Bonus Post, Something Happy?

This is your posse bonus post this month. This photo of the dolphins was just too much to pass up, I had to post it. It is just so darn cool. Wish that I could get some dolphin time, alas life is.

There is some good to be had, if you look for it; sometimes, you have to really do some searching to find it. It is out there, like a formula hiding in plain sight. Some fractals are easier than others.

It has been snowing the last twenty-four hours. Nothing major, just some snow flurries. It has been a nice change, this winter is being kind thus far. New year, seems like the life we want is playing hide-and-seek from us. Pity!

Music is keeping me company, and running at more than 50%, I’ve been busy working on my site: Misfit.Ctopher.Me. It now has a feature to “Like” the photos in the main page, and keeps count of how many likes each post gets. It wasn’t too difficult, took me two days of effort to make it happen. I’m glad it worked out, I think its pretty cool, and neat stuff.

Not much going on; it seems, no matter how much effort I put forth, it is all going into a huge vacuum. Where is everyone at? They must be watching TV, or playing video games. I hope they are out having fun, that would be good. Life is meant to be lived; you should live it to the max!

Seems, I’ve been in a better mood the last few days; times are tough, life is rough. Wish it were going to get a lot better, right quick too! Thank God there is music; I would be so lost, banging on trash cans; trying to make music.

The human race, seems to be going in circles. No one can make their minds up about much of anything. Pity! Maybe it will get better for everyone one of these days, real soon!

Haven’t heard from anyone in months. It is a lot of isolation. More than my fair share; you want some? If I could bottle and sell isolation to people for a profit, wow; that would be something! I have plenty of it; if you want some, write me!

Photo Credit: Mike Palmowski – Unsplash

If only my isolation felt as good as this photo looks, I could use some of that, maybe just dangling my feet off the cliff looks good to me. How mighty the truth can be! Nature doesn’t lie.

I made a video, you should check it out; I think it is really very good. It is on YouTube, and here is the embedded version, if you want to watch it now!

This was my latest project, which I spent an afternoon working on, and a few cups of coffee to complete. I think, it turned out really very well. Some people, think my voice isn’t very good; like to see them smoke two packs a day and still have a voice.

Trying to find meaning; seems this world is made of poison, trying not to let the haters make me meaner than I already am. Life needed to change, and for the better. Such is life.

Have to let this make me better, working towards some goals. I would like to see some results from my effort, yet; everyone is so darn busy these days, seems they don’t have time for me.

Read all the great posts on my blog, some of my writing has gotten a lot better, I feel my progress is very likely, REMARKABLE. If you saw my writing a few years ago, compared to my current work; I think it has come a long ways in the last month.

Have a nice day!! Thanks for reading!!

How to be successful with your journals and learn to think

The Fine Art Of Learning To Think

Do you want to know a good survival technique? Do you want to learn how to think in ways that help you rise above the herd? What you want to do is learn how to journal.

There are few main points:

  1. Consistency is vital
  2. Expressing core thoughts
  3. Expanding core thoughts
  4. Learning new thoughts

Consistency Matters

For your journals to have any real effect, you must be consistent with using them. This means, there are no skipping days or blowing your journals off for doing something else.

Its best if you can write every morning when you first wake up. To find your way through the last nights sleep, and make your path for the new day. This has valuable effects on your psyche and will give you something that grounds you to your life. It is important to have something that gives you a sense of being connected to yourself.

Really the whole point of journaling is to connect your heart and mind with your awareness. By keeping a journal you can connect your mind to your own awareness, which will make you more mindful of your condition. Also by keeping a journal, you can connect your heart to your mind, which allows you to express how you feel about what matters to you.

Knowing what matters and what is rubbish will help you follow the important parts of your dreams, it will free you to live the life you value most. Until you understand what parts of life have the most value to you, you can never really follow your dreams.

By connecting your heart, to your mind, and both of these to your awareness, you can become a more powerful being with the ability to reason, think, and use logic like a pro.

When you learn how to express yourself clearly, though using consistent journaling techniques you will grow as a being. And if you really want to grow as a being, you will find a way to make your life worth living.

Expressing Core Thoughts

By having consistency in your journaling, with your heart, mind, and awareness all connected, you can begin to express your core thoughts on the life you are living.

Core thoughts are the things that matter to you, when all unimportant ideas have been wiped from the slate. Until you start to work on your core thoughts, you will never progress like you should. You have to do the work to get to the point, you are able to express your core thoughts, and understand them like a pro.

Once you have learned how to express your core thoughts, then it’s time to take action on those items and make your life what others could only dream of doing.

Expanding Core Thoughts

Through regular journaling, being consistent with expressing your core thoughts, and having your heart, mind, and awareness all connected, you can begin to expand your core thoughts to new levels. This is doing the work on yourself that will make your life better in the long run. By doing this work on yourself, you can reach a point that your expanded core thoughts become realized, and you can become proficient in expressing them.

When you expand your core thoughts, you are able to learn, grow, and make progress in your life. By learning to expand your own core thoughts, you will reach a point of self mastery and that will allow you to feel connected to your very soul.

Real growth happens when you expand your core thoughts and take them to new levels, and to higher ground. When you realize what doesn’t have value, you can focus on what does have value.

By expanding your core thoughts, you will grow. And if you want real growth, you have to do the work. It doesn’t come easy, or fast. It may take several years of working on your awareness to really learn how to expand your core thoughts. Once you learn how to; it all seems very simple from then on.

Learning New Thoughts

Once you have learned how to connect your heart, mind, and awareness to your ability to express yourself; a lot can happen that will make your life better. Through mastering the technique to do such, you can learn to have new thoughts that will change your point of view, and help you help others in great ways.

Learning new thoughts makes you valuable. It gives you the ability to solve problems and make complex tasks much easier. Once you master the ability to think, then you really have more potential to become what you dream.

Learning new thoughts will give your life meaning. You will find that the small, shallow, superficial existence so many today are stuck in; you will find it no longer serves your needs. It will help you live an enlightened life that has value, meaning, and purpose.

Really the more enlightened you feel, the more value you have. The more value you have, the better the meaning of your life. This will give you purpose beyond what is normal. Thus, you will have connected your mind, heart, and awareness to your consciousness. That would feel really good, wouldn’t it?

If you want to feel good, then you have to do the work. It doesn’t come cheap, only though effort, work, and patience will you ever learn to master yourself. Self mastery is the highest form of intelligence; and one that is very worthy of making happen for yourself.

Conclusion

Master your ability to connect, by connecting your heart, mind, and awareness, you can master your ability to think, reason, and use logic. This will in the long run, improve your chances at becoming a true leader and having self mastery.

By finding your core thoughts, and expanding on those core thoughts, you can learn to remove what doesn’t have the most value in your life, which will make you more powerful.

By learning new thoughts, you increase your value, learn to solve problems faster, and adds value to the world. So take up journaling in new ways, that helps you grow, learn, and master the destiny that awaits you.

Get Your Creative Seeds and Long Term Inspiration

About ten years ago, maybe longer; I had this idea for a seed. A creative seed that would be the source of inspiration for creative people for a long time. It has been one thing that has kept me going in some tough times.

The basic idea is to create a seed that will fuel other creative people for at least five years. The seeds from their work will keep it going, and be fuel for other creatives. So the basis for my creative work is to be the seeds others use to fuel their work.

Someone said something interesting to me, they said, “Because of who I was born, I will never be an artist.” Gee that doesn’t sound too good to me. You have to make what you can of life, despite how you grew up or what your life has been like. I think, it really depends on if you want to be an artist, because if you really want it; nothing could ever stop you.

Being an artist is one of those things that you just don’t really have any other choice to do. When the fire burns in your soul, there is nothing else to do but answer it. What conditions you were born under, simple isn’t going to stop a motivated person.

So I have been motivated to build some kind of seed, that would fuel other creatives for a while with new ideas, ways of seeing life, and maybe something that few else have. Really, you would have to take in the whole body of work I have created. Which is going to be a small investment in your time, because I have written almost six million words in whole. Let that sink in.

This project matters to me, it might matter to you too. Take a look, then, look deeper. There is a lot of substance there, really you would have to work for several years, to really understand it all.

I wanted to inspire someone. By creating a seed of creativity, this could be possible. Maybe some few will benefit from my effort, maybe they will create something really great from my ideas.

It seems because of my status in life, no one will listen to me, pity; life could have been better. However, if you take my ideas, and work from them, maybe they are good enough that others will listen to your ideas based upon mine.

I know it’s a long shot, but it’s worth putting this out there, someone eventually will have to listen, because life is simply too screwed up for people to fail to listen and take action.

Maybe my ideas will make the tip of the knife for your creative flow to be created. Just don’t point the knife at me. You know? My life has been rough and tough; however, if you want to give me some credit for the ideas, that would be most welcome.

There are a number of places my work can be found, however its best you start with the basic stuff, then go digging deeper. The most basic place you should start is on my blog, MyDigitalChaos.blog; from there, you can explore the further regions at your leisure. If I leave my work up that long, thinking about it, you might want to get busy, because it is very likely that this stuff is going to go away very soon.

You have two months to feed.

If nothing else, make your own seeds for those in the future. Start with some concepts, make nice neat little packages of them, and have enough that they will inspire other people in the future. It’s something I wish that I had in my life. Make life nice for someone else who will be creative, by making a creative seed pod for future use. There is a lot you could do with the ideas, if you do it right.

Conclusion

If you use my creative seed, be sure to credit me with the source for the material. If you are making your own creative seed pods, be sure other people credit you for your ideas. Make good seed pods, and inspire others to do great work. If want to sell this idea, you have to pay me a cut of the profits.

So that is it, in a nutshell. I’m not in a nutshell, but that is the ideas in the most basic form. Hope they will bring some joy into your life, or that of others in this world.

One World Government – Hopefully Soon!

With all the hubbub, so many people are depressed today. I don’t see much reason to be depressed about much, its still life like it has always been. For things to really get better, life has to change by a lot. What we are looking for is a one world government. It is so much easier to rule one government than a hundred factions of people that want to rule themselves.

Maybe it won’t be long before a One World Government is set in order, and things start to change and run a lot smoother. It has been rough going the last twenty years in this world, a lot has happened; and much that shouldn’t have happened, has.

Times are tough, life has to get better for everyone, you know? No need to be depressed, you will likely get to grow old and die, just like everyone else. You shouldn’t really be disappointed with the current situation, it could have been worse. I think maybe there is some hope to be had, there is hope to be had.

Not everyone always gets their way, but you can take comfort in the fact that life, while not always fair, should at least allow you to keep your dignity intact. Whether you can still respect yourself after what they have done is a different matter, but its not open for debate.

The way life has been, this should have never happened in the first place. Pity!! Wanted life to be a lot better, no one would listen, they didn’t care, didn’t give a damn what I thought. They just talked over the top of me, disregarded me, and treated me like shit.

They should have been kind. You know, kindness is godly. The lack of kindness shows a real disrespect to their God. Life could have been better, it should have been better. The treatment of everyone, as though, because they are different; somehow they are not good enough to be loved, shows how sick society has become.

They are all made out of clay. Think about that. Let that sink in.

Life should have been better. They don’t listen. Its too late now.

Pity. Maybe we will get one world government to solve some of these problems for a while, maybe it can still be worked out; so these things don’t ever happen again, and will be distant memories.

Memento Mori.

It is time for change. Regardless of what you believe, life is still going to change; so you may want to change your diet. If you think you are going to get cake and booze, maybe you should try some nice dust from the windowsill. Just wait around for the phone call from God.

More Dog Balls

No, not really. This is a follow up article from the one about what is advantageous. This one is about: Not every opportunity is a good one. Read on dear friends. . . .

Not Every Opportunity Is A Good One

It seems in life, that once you understand not everything is advantageous, then the next logical step is to understand that not every opportunity is a good one. Some are better than others, some are great, some would suck eggs. What one persons tragic ending might be someone else’s fairytale. To each their own. Not here to judge, just to make some observations about life.

I’ve been hearing talk about the snake oil out there about the problems with meditation and mindfulness. While, its good to make some points about it; some things have good results, progress is slow to take hold most of the time. Starting somewhere is better than never starting at all.

With that in mind, if you are practicing mindfulness or meditation in a limited sense, at least you have began. Small steps to start with, then working your way up the ladder of the self into true understanding. Just keep in mind, it takes years to undo a lot of the problems society has put into your heart and mind. So take it slow, work your way up; maybe someday you will be a guru? If you want that, to each their own.

John Lennon said, “No guru can see through your eyes.” So true, yet, if you were to live my life, a lot more than your eyes would hurt. Life has been painful, a lot of rough spots in my life. Which is leading into the section about how not every opportunity is a good one.

What Matters?

What matters in life is that we make good choices. Aside from doing what does not cause harm, there are choices we can make that improve our odds in life. Having the skill to see the opportunities for what they are, and how they can be used to make our lives better.

Shakespeare said, “Use every man as he deserves, and who will not escape a whipping?” Well that was hundreds of years ago, these days, they will just shame you on the internet trolls. Such is life.

Life is rough, if you want to make it; you have to be pretty tough. There are lessons in life, some of which will teach you the hard way. I would know, there have been some rough days in my life. Looking back on it, it was really caused by one choice that was made when my emotions overpowered my logic and reason. I’ve paid for twenty years for that choice, and there is no going back to fix it.

One bad choice is all anyone is from certain doom. These days have changed since life twenty years ago, life was a lot more forgiving back then. Still, we have to live with ourselves, through it all.

Not every opportunity is a good one. Not all things are advantageous. Some things seem like they would be cool, other things have more appeal than others, but either way life is more like Russian roulette than anything else; seems you’re always taking your chances. Life has its ways of sugar coating poison.

Remember the advice, if it smells like peaches or almonds, its best to spit that junk out. Be wise, make good choices. You don’t want to end up living like I have the last twenty years. I’ve thought, something has to change; yet, nothing ever does. Pity!

Don’t let fools gas light you into doing something stupid, that hurts your long term chances at survival. You have to be smarter than that, be wise; always pick the hot knife over the hot mess.

Someday you will thank me for that advice; if you pick right.

Photo by Markus Spiske on Unsplash

Conclusion

Life can be easy, if you pick the right choices. Not every opportunity is a good one, and some will lead you down a long dark road of hurt, and shame. You have to pick the choices that make sense, its not until you get twenty years down the road, that you can see where the points connect like dots on a graph. The goal may not be to reach point B, the goal might be to move point B from where it is, to somewhere else. That doesn’t happen over night.

Loosing weight, is more valuable than eating the candy bar.

Shot In The Dark

Shot In The Dark

Some advice about writing, life, and pain. After thinking for a while, there are some points you can benefit from. When it comes to your writing, the ratio of input to output may make a difference. You have to output good work, if you can have output greater than the input, so much the better.

Would this not be one way to see what value work has? If the output is greater than the input? Maybe, I would like to believe that such a thing is possible. What input do you pay attention to when you sit down to write? Everyone is different, and it seems everyone’s results are different.

This is a shot in the dark, but what formula could one construct to show mathematically what success looks like? Or, for that matter; maybe we could show how much pain is necessary to become a successful writer. Seems life is pain, and only doing what is never painful is going to leave you with a weak system. But how much pain is enough? What would the formula look like?

I was thinking of something that would express the input to output ratio, and include the amount of effort, pain, and then what the results for the piece would be. Then taken the given body of work and average them, for the results; to see if it’s worth doing?

Something I was thinking about today; you have to take into account the users current happy index, then see what the points are for having a failed project, or one that doesn’t get positive results from the effort put forth. If you aren’t already happy, think twice about taking up writing. You may be happier doing something else. It takes an awful lot of failure to get somewhere. It takes a lot of pain; to the point, you almost have to be a masochist. Really!

I’m bored, been thinking a lot today. These are some of the highlights I’ve had in my day. It takes a lot of thought, which comes down to trying to find the right input to get the best output from my work. I’m not sure if this work will resemble a pit, or a sky scraper. Maybe its a pit to build a sky scraper into it? Maybe.

This is a shot in the dark, not sure anyone will even ever read this, no one is reading anything these days. Most people never think about what they read; as though I have reason to believe they are all mindless zombies. Are you?

Someone is going to have to come along and make us feel something, if nothing else; pain. Because people are not really being aware of anything. It’s a problem with society today.

Needed better results. Seems I may not have the ability to withstand the pain of more failed projects and the time it takes to build a successful project. I’ve been trying to make something happen for about three years now. Nothing has worked out with anything what so ever. Pity.

I’m not sure what new dream I can come up with, I have tried a lot of stuff to make something work; seems no one cares. I have to wonder, if anyone is even in this world? Seems awful empty to me, no friends, no job, no girlfriend, no one that cares.

I’ve mentioned it seems like a cage. That didn’t wake them up, and it was treated with the same indifference everything else is treated with. Are they that stupid? Maybe. Pity.

This is a shot in the dark, nothing to make it better. Some twisted world we live in, and wish it were going better. Maybe someone will wake up soon, and start to think again. Maybe me.

Have a nice day!

Creative Arts – In Peril Or Ready To Bloom, You Are Here!

We are living in unprecedented times. Its been since 1945 that America faced such gloom. That is a whole lifetime for some people. Looking around me, from what I read, what I see, and what I hear; these days are really tough. The creative arts is an important part of life, not just in this country; but in life in general.

Due to the pandemic many creative artists are in a real bind these days. Seems there isn’t any relief to be had from the way things are. And people have to eat sometimes.

I know my own struggles, it seems people have a high amount of apathy these days. As though, they couldn’t care about anyone but themselves; and it has been taken to an extreme by many. How can we ever get back to being a whole society, and being whole as beings again?

It seems the individual is the only fabric of our modern world. Because one person doesn’t have much force to drive in the face of public opinion these days. There are other causes, and other problems that have more attention. Seems everyone wants to be in the spotlight for their five seconds of glory.

The creative arts is an important part of life. How many people really appreciate the creative arts in today’s modern world? It seems the whole field is being neglected, and treated with indifference. Seems to be a problem with society, because they treat most people that way in today’s modern world.

There is some hope, that in the spring when this winter thaws, there will be new growth in the creative arts; that maybe this winter of life; will pass, and new work will rise up even better than before.

One can hope. Still, neglect, indifference, and apathy are running rampant these days. Someone is going to have to make us feel something again; and bring the human race back to life. Too many today are living like zombies. They don’t care, they couldn’t be bothered, and they are not interested in anything. Seems like a world of house cats to me.

Those same cats are going to get hungry someday. When the world is as dull and lifeless as the face of the moon, somehow I doubt they will bask in the glow and say they have a perfect world. At this point, they can go back to living in mud huts for all I care. I’m not looking for validation from humans in this world. Yet, there are problems that need solved and on the bounce too.

My art, my writing, my feelings, they are are dis-regarded as worthless. It seems there is nothing I could do or say that would make them give any sign of caring. Pity; because if they listened, they might learn something important. I have experience in some things that are uncommon, and not the usual boujee junk most people are trying to promote. Somehow, I seriously doubt anyone is going to listen to me. It feels like screaming into the ears of a deaf cat.

Someday, they won’t be able to object. There will be a time, they are simply out of time; with nothing they can do about it. You would think, they would care before it reaches that point, but alas, they seem far too dumb to think it through.

I was looking to doing more work, in the near future; maybe something much better than the work previously produced. Seems what I need these days is a muse. They are in short supply these days; tough times.

Times are going to continue to get worse, if nothing changes, then it will very likely get only worse for everyone. At some point, you have to wonder if they will feel the sacrifice would be worth what it cost? Everyone has a pain point, and when the pain is great; they are more willing to pay for having relief. If they were smart, they would avoid the pain altogether, and take the best action ahead of time. Seems, they aren’t going to do what is good.

The world is a mess, and maybe we need a lot of people to start to wake up; life is short, and if you don’t have some long term goals that are looking to change the world in two centuries or longer, then you are wasting everyone’s time, energy, and money. We need some real vision about the future that will make life really better.

Most people don’t talk about the future, most are stuck on the problems of today; and few ever think the problems of today will effect the problems of tomorrow. They are however all connected. So some things simply have to start to change for the better.

Don’t neglect the creative arts in life. Some of these people seem to have enough apathy to silence whole groups of people with just a cross look. Yet, someone is going to have to make life better. People that are doing things, they are the ones to watch; because they change things, sometimes for the better.

And what we need at this point, is better. You are here, at the cross road in life, where change can still be made for the better, you do however have to choose to make life better, because the world in a few hundred years won’t be as pretty if you fail to choose right.

You are here, do something good today, for a better future.
