Socrates believed that the gods provided us with a type of insanity. The illness was responsible for poetry, mysticism, love, and philosophy. He called it Divine Madness. We call it intuition, inspiration, the muse. Regardless, I have been contaminated. This blog is an attempt to share the ramblings in my head by the subtle stroking of keys. I'm going to touch upon those situations that move me and define me as human.
I've read countless posts lately on the importance of social media and writing. Therefore, I have no desire to add my two cents. Instead, I'm going to send out a call to life. We were all blessed with a physical body and stuck in a relative realm loaded with illusions.
Explanation of relative realm for those not science savvy and in light of upcoming Trekkie fest. (There's no up without a down, no left without a right, short without a tall...I hope you get the picture. We need the opposite of everything for life to function in our realm.)
Here we place emphasis on work, goals, success....always about what we're doing. It's what society teaches us. We're expected to act like machines. And in doing that, we forget to be human, to be trully present in life. If we're not careful, we as writers, will miss out on the most interesting part of the story.
When was the last time you were so focused on what you were doing that you overlooked this?....
Best Art of Nature
love of your family
kiss lasting for more than five seconds...or minutes. ;)
That's right. It's a horny toad.
This weekend I'm inviting you to enjoy yourself.
Celebrate those you love.
Eat fun foods.
Don't lose sight of what really matters.
Shine your brilliance onto the very sun.
Have a great weekend everyone!
See you all on Monday for spectacular Star Trek Fest.
