I travel, take photos, make videos, and write. I have a job in corporate marketing that allows me to put whatever talent I have left to good use.
I value connection over clutter. Presence over preoccupation. Remember, be here now.
Two years after Alfred Nobel invented dynamite, his factory near Stockholm blew up, killing his brother Emil. Alfred Nobel was not an asshole. Not for killing his brother anyway.
Sometimes the unintended consequences of life can get us down or steer us into places we never expected to find ourselves. I imagine the good majority of serious minds find themselves looking in the mirror at a person they barely recognize at times. As we grow, our tear-filled "why god" can hopefully work its way to becoming a contented "why not"--even if the answers prance away.
To be aware is to participate in the continuing progression of consciousness. To question flawlessly and embrace the confused journey is our task.
I hope you're embracing well.
