To accept death, means to accept life

"A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time. A man does not die of love or his liver or even of old age; he dies of being a man." We grow accustom to our safety, to our bed, to our material belongings. We cherish these things, and they become one with... Continue Reading →

fulfillment

I was talking to a psychiatrist the other day, a pretty well decorated fellow, plaques, degrees, the whole 9 yards. We had a discussion surrounding human needs, and it was going smoothly... until he brought up the notion that "fulfillment" was a basic need. I sat there for a second, and considered this. It made...

let people do their thing

something i don't quite understand in the world today is what people tend to get upset about. this is almost like a black hole for me that i could go into indefinitely, but i will try to not dive too deep into the infinite on this one. A lady is wearing a bright orange jacket,... Continue Reading →

This happens with buildings, shoes, and pretty much everything that comes... Continue Reading →

The Millennial Distraction Problem

Another post about social media, and another post about the problem with millennials. Sometimes I feel as though this generation does not receive enough credit, but for the sake of this post, I will do as many others before me have, and lump the millennial generation into one big pile of phone addicted hooligans.
