As technology increasingly becomes one of humanity’s core imperatives, how we interact with each other has changed significantly. Once upon a time, sharing ideas required one being physically interacting with another on SOME level, but these days our interactions just need the appropriate device. The devices get more complicated, ironically ... Read More

Found some kindling

Fire is an emblematic representation of life itself. It is an ever changing mixture of creation and destruction. It can provide comfort while instilling fear. It can rage uncontrolled, or be used with precise finesse. What fire is will be determined by how we choose to use it. And so with ... Read More

Standing up for what is right

I have never voted before. I never even registered to vote. Many people say this means I have no right to complain  about what goes on in our society, since I don’t participate in the decision-making process. I wholeheartedly disagree. Not voting IS a vote. It is a vote for ... Read More

Re-reflecting on reflections

My journey of late has become more metaphysical than physical. Who knew that would be the more painful adventure? I love mirrors. Well, to be more accurate, I love reflective surfaces. To me they are like gateways to other worlds; doorways to What If. They are spark plugs for the ... Read More
