Writing

Being a lifelong learner is easer when I write

It is as functional as my practice.

I write to gain more perspectives and to make directions ,notes and to do things more manually.

I appreciate people who write and do screen play,as artists, but everyone needs to write as a learning tool.

See what I did there,

I am trying to use the same formate as “Drawing”.

Ideally, we need many tools to build a good mind and stay a lifelong learner.

So let’s think outside the box.

The reasons I write and draw is to become a critical thinker, integrate theory with practice and explore to discover.

Art may imitate life, but writing and drawing builds a better mind that does both.

The Vacant Soul

Even within the void, the soul survives,

When all life ceases,

When the universe collapses,

But wrench away all love,

For even an instant….

There is more than a gap, or hole,

For a hole in the soul will heal,

The inconsolable are clamoring to vacate the soul,

The mighty wars are destroying what soul lies within us,

Diseases like poverty, depression, and a lack of sustenance,

Yet, as we stand clear, or when all of us have fallen, the soul will remain,

It will endure all kinds of hardships,

It will remain for eons,

But even the soul will falter,

In the darkness, in the void, beyond, there is nothing.

Deep inside this vacant place where only the soul can visit,

We can learn a lot about absenteeism, desperation, abhorrence, disgust, and resentment.

But even here the soul is free.

It is like the soul will always be of value to those who can not care for themselves or even stand to live anymore.

The soul is a hearty representative.

To extinguish the soul is beyond even our collective ability.

But to be in a state where all color fades from the eye,

All life ceases to attract,

Here is where the soul lies vacant,

But it is still waiting,

It will wait forever.

Perhaps, time will pass, and life will return.

A vacant soul awaits you.

You can return.

Strive, inch by inch, don’t give up, never say never, life is too big to go away forever,

In this sense, the soul is immortal and alive,

So if you must despair, become inconsolable,

Try, inch by inch, when the color reappears, when you can feel life in your veins again,

To rejoice, you are with your soul, try not to neglect your soul.

Grab A Meeting With Society’s Daughter

People today, meet less and text more. Women meet and argue about what look they will use to move us forward from the millennia of awkwardness and backwardness. They will claim the power they need to contribute to this move and engage all along the path to a better future.

Dante is curious to know her mind.

Beatrice leaves her girlfriends to engage the observer.

Beatrice: Hello, my eyes invite you to a conversation. Have you not to say?

Dante: You ask too much from this asp. I must delay.

B: Surely, you prattle on about my whimsy?

D: I like the look of you, what will you do?

B: First, I will say how backwards this seems to me. And I invite my girls to participate.

D: My boyfriends are ready to jump in and make some moves.

B: Good, humanity acts like a fool. Can you stave your knave and avoid me?

D: I can, but at what expense?

B: Power and envy will get us nowhere.

D: Why play with words?

B: Because that is all you can see, I want to move forward.

D: Very well, I agree.

All For One, And One For All

Honour, freedom, truth…

People who dedicate themselves to the above principles.

A lot is demanded of said individuals:

A fierce loyalty that shows itself to like minded individuals,

A razor’s edge of singlemindedness that renews all sense of purpose,

A real sense of integrity that binds them all.

Perhaps, we all embody just an infinitesimal portion of such potent virtue.

But this keeps alive the boyish charms,

And the girlish glee of whom we honour.

This is a tribute, “The Three Musketeers” by Alexander Dumas.

Don’t Give Up Your Freedom

But don’t abuse others or yourself with your freedom.

Your personal space can be used to express yourself:  connect with others when you stop to wait in a line up, try to catch the bus, or get stopped by the police.  But don’t harm yourself or others in the process.

We value our freedom of expression but need to be responsible for our actions at the same time.

Some people think time is money.  Use it wisely, why are you watching TV (again) tonight?

Have sex responsibly, and do everything else responsibly:  spend money, time, energy, other resources?

Be the best you can be:  it’s like we may only be here once, do you really want to waste anything?

We tend to cooperate and collaborate in all that we do.  It seems to work and give us freedom to boot.

If you live in a first world country:  think of a thousand things you are grateful about, a hundred things for a second world country, 10 things for a third world country…

Do we need to be told to use our freedom in a wise way?

[Alexander and Diogenes], The Greater Freedom

In this dialogue, Alexander the Great, apologizes to the great Cynic Diogenes when each fiery remark enables numerous replies.

Alexander:  If I could be you, I would give up me.  But I am trying to civilize the barbarian hoard into the Grecian way.

Diogenes:  Being free of my ego is better than money, fame or power.  And you will never experience it.

A:  I am sorry you feel this way.  You teach me to be better with less in many ways.  You accomplish more with less by using your mind in difficult good ways.

D:  Exercise the habits of freedom and you will be at peace.
