Earth Day: 2016

Earth Day: 2016

I am not a huge fan of the entire Earth Day movement. I see it as a politically inspired facade where people masquerading as leaders, do and say stupid shit, and pretend they care about you and I and the blue marble we spin through space and time on.

Forms

The featured image this week is of my friend, designer Jenny Doll, deep into sword forms. When we endeavor to become at one with Nature, there is far more discipline, and exploration than one would at first glance, ever imagine to be required. We become it. It does not become us.

I have been thinking on this the past two weeks, likely due to the betrayal experienced in the espionage. (I was serious) Question I asked myself: WhatContinue Reading

Connecting
