Universal Appeal

Lately, the voices in my head have been shouting, screaming, cajoling, and bickering. Since I’ve written very little this year while I concentrate on publishing each character has decided to pop up at inopportune moments to pester me about when I’ll visit them again. I tell them to shush to no avail; they come back […]

Integrated Living Part Four: The Human Napkin

One of the saddest realizations I ever had was learning how much I had let myself be worn down by others. I was the invisible child. Literally, no one ever knew where I was or what I was up to. The only time people acknowledged me was to note how intelligent I was or to […]

I’ll Be Back

Hello all! I am sorry I haven’t posted anything recently. I’ve been dealing with one of my recurring illnesses, and it is a bitch! Funnily enough, right now my anger is my best friend. Anger gives you plenty of energy and I funnel it into my work (cleaning). I know that seems strange, but this […]

Integrated Living Series Part Three: The Home in Your Head

People often want really nice homes. They dream of setting it up, adding personal touches, and maybe even having a family fill it up. Yet there’s another home each one of us had that we forget about. It’s the one in our head. No matter what, the brain is an inescapable part of our lives. […]

Integrated Living Series Part Two: Energy

It’s useful for me to think of the spirit, the soul, as being the sum total energy of a being. It is enough energy to last your entire lifespan (unless an accident cuts it short). Consciousness is the process that allows us to focus that energy for our survival. There are things in life that […]

WHAT IS LIFE? A 21st CENTURY PERSPECTIVE | Edge.org

So many implications. As Venter described the way that DNA, ribosomes, yeast, bacteria, and chemicals worked my mind lit on fire. Imagine the day where they can physically manipulate DNA, rNA, and everything else by standing in a digital cloud. It will be like the screens in Minority Report, except encompassing, with them waltzing through […]

It’s a rough start but at least people are starting to actually study how and why people form the relationships they do. However, some parts of this were painful to read. There is still dyadic embedded language; they assume CNM is something that only couples decide to do, instead of individual people coming to that conclusion on their own. I also found it really weird that they focused on gay men, overall it was reminiscent of assumptions about bisexuals. It’s a good try, but there is such a long way to go. Final assessment: meh.

Believe you can change (Aaron Swartz’s Raw Thought)

I’ve become more growth-mindset oriented in the past few years. I’ve always leaned toward it but now it swallows and towers over any fixed-mindset attitudes I have left. It also explains my frustration when helping people. At first I assumed if just have to leave the fixed-mindset people figure it out eventually yet this article […]

Integrated Living: Introduction

Humans tend to have this strange habit of walking around each day and chopping their life into bits. They chop others’ lives into bits, too, at any opportunity. We have this natural ability to categorize, organize, and analyze yet issues arise when this is applied improperly. When we try to measure other people or ourselves […]

Writing Saved My Life

My stories are…unique. They read like dreams and cover vastly divergent topics. Yet somehow, there are strong core threads that link many of them together, weaving one through another like twining branches on the tree of my artistic ability. The first series I ever wrote is called The Black Tree and it has become a […]
