fear trump, fear hillary, fear the ‘socialist’ bernie, fear climate change, fear isis (or whatever the terror du jour is today), fear the police, fear the zika, fear the media, fear (what’s next?)…in the biggest picture, we are being trained to fear our own judgment…and even deeper, to fear ourselves.
as far as years go, 2016 is a piece of shit. the lies we’re being fed, the choices we’re being forced to make. pardon my french, but it’s fucking depressing.
lately i’ve seen and experienced so many beautiful things, watched the universe unfold itself like inverse origami. as much as things suck, or at least as much as we’re told that we should think that they suck, things are actually quite magical.
the other day, i walked home with my son. as we came around a corner, we were greeted by the full moon rising out of the sandias. in that moment, all the bullshit fell away and was left in a pile around that corner.
open up your eyes. feel the wind in your hair, the sun on your face. it’s our duty to be true to each other, and ourselves. and for fuck’s sake, turn off the tv.
