    Rebel might be a word used to describe me. It’s a term that has popped up quite often in my life and used by those who know me. I’ve also been called contrarian, firebrand, revolutionary, artist, philosopher to name a few. I see the world in an absurd and askew fashion without apology and with great humor. I fear consensus and, yet, I strive for some kind of meaningful consensus along the way as a living contradiction. I suppose it’s about striving for some kind of equilibrium and understanding that contradiction is part of it. Most people are uncomfortable with deep, inner contradiction. It causes a cognitive dissonant function to ping off in the brain and most people either choose a side to quell inner fears and forget to explore the strangeness of it all or ignore the contradiction altogether preferring to live in blindness. I say look at all the wrong things in your life, always. Take the wrong path on purpose against the better wisdom of the crowd. You may find far more fascinating paths, nooks and crannies. Or even better. See no right or wrong way of doing anything and just do. Create activity with a flurry and vengeance. Look at the world and put beautiful and good things into it for all to enjoy. Throughout its contradictions and baffling ways, life is still just a system and machine and we get a limited time to play in this system. So how do you want to play?

    As for myself, I’m going off in my own way. Maybe we’ll meet up around the corner and get some play time in.

  3. No citizen has a right to be an amateur n the matter of physical training…What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable
    — Socrates
     


  4. After Bankei had passed away, a blind man who lived near the master’s temple told a friend:

    "Since I am blind, I cannot watch a person’s face, so I must judge his character by the sound of his voice. Ordinarily when I hear someone congratulate another upon his happiness or success, I also hear a secret tone of envy. When condolence is expressed for the misfortune of another, I hear pleasure and satisfaction, as if the one condoling was really glad there was something left to gain in his own world.

    "In all my experience, however, Bankei’s voice was always sincere. Whenever he expressed happiness, I heard nothing but happiness, and whenever he expressed sorrow, sorrow was all I heard."

    — Zen Koan

  7. A first-class citizen does not plead to the white power structure to give him something that the whites have no power to give or take away. Human rights are human rights, not white rights.

    This guy.

    This guy is a nutball. He’s eccentric, off-kilter and perhaps, just perhaps, tapped into the universal and united treatise that makes us all free peoples. His name is Matthew Silver, performance artist and improv/stream of consciousness genius.  I have great admiration for what this man does. He challenges society to look beyond physical presentation and listen to underlying truths…

  13. Sweat Dream

    #SwampAss

    sweat card

    Boxed in. A last gasp for breath through a long straw pulling bubbles out of soda pop bottles, thick air, steam faced, lungs burned. Dry mouth stench, suck in, snore out, whimper, whine, choke on spit, gasp. This heat is unbearable. It is a dragon pulling its tail through parched nostrils, flying its circuit, grimacing its contempt for life. Burn, everything, burn it wants, it loves you to…

  14. Rant of the Day

    Begin rant:

    I am not anti-capitalism. However, I also know we need to work towards a better system and not delude ourselves into believing in ‘compassionate capitalism’

    Compassionate capitalism is like saying you realize you need to stop feeding your baby formula, but instead of actually connecting at a mother level, you hire a wet nurse because you’re more concerned about getting droopy breasts and stretch marks.
