In The Name Of Progress

In The Name Of Progress

It often saddens me to see people working mindless, menial, and often dead-end jobs with little pay in the name of progress.  It seems as a society that the vast majority of us are more than willing, and often eager to trade our precious and fleeting time in exchange for money.  We fear losing our jobs and likewise, our loss of income.  Employers notoriously leverage control out of fears of job loss, so we seldom consider alternative means of income.  Welcome to the new age; a society so dependent upon our employment that we will do exactly as we are told to keep our jobs.

In Pursuit Of Greatness

Beginning in the early 1990's is when I started to take my writing seriously, in pursuit of greatness.  I was inspired by all of the so-called great writers who had written the classics typically added to high school reading lists.  It was in the late 90's that I first began to receive feedback after putting some of my writing on the Internet.  It seems so very long ago, and yet I often look back to the early days wondering how far I have progressed with my craft and the realization that if I had never found love, I might very well have devoted my life to writing.

Black And White Dreams

Black And White Dreams

When I was a child, I would dream in black and white.  Only a small fraction of my dreams would be in color, to match normal perception of day, respectively.  And yet there is something beautiful about black and white dreams.  They are often mysterious as the characters generally fade into ones perception much like silhouettes, or a ghost coming towards ones self walking out of a cover of fog.  For reasons I cannot explain, as as adult, the vast majority of my dreams are in vivid color, the complete opposite of those I had during my childhood.

Ellen Goodman Quote

"Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, car and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it." - Ellen Goodman
