I used to love debating about creationism— and I still do. But I am very much inclined to bias– from an evolutionary perspective.
I can’t lie, Darwinian evolution– survival of the fittest and natural selection, are concepts that make the most sense to me. And though I feel it is true that both can co-exist within themselves, I am still compelled to against against the typical creationist perspectives.

I am a very physical person.
I enjoy athletics, and I love training like an athlete.
I also love trail running, I find it more absorbing than regular pavement running– and though I do find myself hitting the concrete from time to time– the other day was definitely a trail day. Continue reading “Festering Words: “May I Suggest A Smoother Path?””
The following is a brief example on being human– at least in the most random sense of a moment.
We all experience a whole assortment of thoughts, or collections as we go about our days. Afterall, we are what we think.
To set the scene:
I was about two hours into some computer work at Starbucks. With a good caffeine boost– my own delirium got the best of me.
Behold, Another human! :
Frantic, unorganized, and delirious in thought. Continue reading “A Brief Moment In Delirium– High on Coffee and Sweet, Sweet Jazz!”
Hello old friend,
it has been so long, I don’t know where to begin.
I remember when we met– young and naive — together we trodden around, hoping to never grow old.
Our problems were minimal, only the day at hand, and what was to become of it was our only real concern.
Friend’s forged brothers. Continue reading “An Aged Poem- My Friend, So Long.”
For the sake of this post, and how I am feeling in this particular moment, I will say it and spell it out again…
Don’t get me wrong– I am all for mindfulness
I practice mindfulness, awareness, and meditation daily. I also try to incorporate it into every little facet of my being in order to capture more of the moment.
Well What’s your f*king problem then? Continue reading “F*ck Mindfullness: Fake it till you make it! How mindfullness can sometimes deafeat the purpose of itself.”
I sit here staring through the middle of the night. That and not much more,
The rain trickles, and pours… then trickles… then pours.
As it struggles to find an enduring rhythm, the subtle but unmistakable flashes of lightning that dance in the accompaniment of thunder.
What feelings wash into my being? Continue reading “What Thunder And Lightning Feel Like.”
Well, I happened to stumble onto this ‘Transient’ challenge laid out by Andrea Badgley.
Immediately, I began to form visuals and associate images of the past– a past that is now very late.
Perhaps a pirates’ past, sailing the open seas in search of new opportunities to plunder.
Perhaps a life spent upon the helm— does the helmsman steer the ship, or does the ship steer the helmsman? Continue reading “Transient Memories That Don’t Belong To Me.”
“I don’t WANT to huff and puff, But, I NEED to huff and puff!”
We are hilarious, because we love to live in delusion.
Listen, I am all for positive thinking— but not at the expense of ignoring negative thought and emotion.
We hear it often:
“Build on yourself”
“Build on your optimism”
“Build on your greetings and smiles”
“Build on your openness”
YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK! Continue reading “Huffing and Puffing Towards a Solution-The Power Of Negative Thinking”
