People prefer known hells to unknown heavens, because hell is familiar. ~Les Brown
So although I’m generally a very positive person I decided to drop this post to remind myself and anyone who’s willing to listen. So recently some people who I know and had great conversations with have gone from this world. I still have the shared memory of common experiences, but the spirit of that person has left this realm. I send best wishes and condolences to him and his family. I’m not going to post a picture because I don’t want to parade him on this blog as he will truly be remembered by many as a great man. But his death reminded me as it does all of us. Are you doing the things that you want to do. Are you building creating what you want to create? Are you being the person in life that you want to be? OR are you just coasting from crises to crises hoping that one day you can stop and smell the roses. Well I got news for you. Even when you think you reached a position where you can relax, “Bam” a new crises will show up. So crises or no crises, start, if you already started keep going, if you kept going but your waning focus, remember why you started and re-imagine the final outcome. Listening to Les Brown yesterday morning he so eloquently put it, all the dreams, and ideas, poetry, sounds, revelations, words, and hopes, that you have are yours to bring to fruition in the world. No one else has been given those set of ideas, it’s your job, to execute, execute, execute. In the end, win, lose, or fail. You’ll know you have lived the life you wanted to live. One thing that I picked up from another motivational speech is to repeat, I am the kind of person who………..dreams big, saves money, helps kids, protects my family, helps the handicap, writes novels, makes films, creates shows that amaze, plants flowers or trees. The possibilities are endless, with LOVE in my heart Electramorhipism out.
So I woke up this morning thinking about the notion of time. what is time? Why do we do things according to time? Some cultures view time differently than other cultures. Either way if your alive you have been given the precious gift of time. Are you using time to do what you want to do? Are you waiting for a certain time to start whatever you want to start? Well dont wait anything longer. Go. Go. go. and go some more. Your future self will thank you.
What in the hell does Gold Panning have to do with creating a Creative Arts company? I dont know. You tell me. Lol. Well not really. See learning to do gold panning is just like figuring out how to create a creative arts company. The process is hard and your looking for a needle in a haystack. But when you find some gold dust or “Color” as they call it, its all worth it. Plus in nature and off the grid is when in sights not noticed before show up. Plus your in the middle of no where which is scary but also very intense. You learn to let go of everything you know and learn to just venture. I think we think our learn that we have to have a goal or achieve, achieve, achieve, but that comes at a cost of just observing and being in the moment. When out in nature you remind yourself, no deadlines, just be.
In this webisode I was sitting around the house playing with flash, then came up with this silly animation and song. The animation could have been more but wasnt. The song is just about being tired of told different lies in life and in general. Well thats all. Enjoy!
