  • Beating Sun of a hot cicada Summer…
    It was a hot cicada Summer. He walked the streets among many. His life feeling much like a bummer. It took time but he realized. Life can be great despite circumstances and consequence. This year now seen with his own eyes. To come back a better man. Having done everything you needed to do. FiguringContinue reading “Beating Sun of a hot cicada Summer…”
  • Any Given Present…
    “Don’t let your imagination be crushed by life as a whole. Don’t try to picture everything bad that could possibly happen. Stick with the situation at hand, and ask, ‘Why is this so unbearable? Why can’t I endure it?’ You’ll be embarrassed to answer. Then remind yourself that past and future have no power overContinue reading “Any Given Present…”
  • Strength from Within…
    “There are more things to alarm us than to harm us, and we suffer more often in apprehension than reality.” ~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca “If you have assumed a character beyond your strength, you have both played a poor figure in that, and neglected one that is within your powers.” ~ Epictetus
  • Release of Shame…
    “It is not the actions of others which trouble us (for those actions are controlled by their governing part), but rather it is our own judgments. Therefore remove those judgments and resolve to let go of your anger, and it will already be gone. How do you let go? By realizing that such actions areContinue reading “Release of Shame…”

  • The Savage Prime
    The barbarian savage nature of the more primitive man isn’t natural at all. The name itself implies this. What is unnatural is the material order of society, and self substantial hierarchy. These concepts force mankind to fear itself. The person one fears most is that, themselves. For in their perspective, subject reality manifests such fear.Continue reading “The Savage Prime”
  • Art of the Witch Doctor and Folk Medicine
    Psychosomatic medicine, also known as folk magic or the Witch Doctor. An herbalist but much more. The shamen doctor of sorts. These would not only understand but accept consistent variation of talisman’s, verbal charms, and prayers or ritual. Pragmatic in the most natural style. Any folk doctor would know the psychological view of human withContinue reading “Art of the Witch Doctor and Folk Medicine”
  • Essence of Digestion
    “For even sheep do not vomit up their grass and show to the shepherds how much they have eaten; but when they have internally digested the pasture, they produce externally wool and milk. Do you also show not your theorems to the uninstructed, but show the acts which come from their digestion.” ~ Epictetus
  • Tenacity with Humility
    “The first step: Don’t be anxious. Nature controls it all. And before long you’ll be no one, nowhere – like Hadrian, like Augustus. The second step: Concentrate on what you have to do. Fix your eyes on it. Remind yourself that your task is to be a good human being; remind yourself what nature demandsContinue reading “Tenacity with Humility”
  • “Jon~zo” Journalism ~ Nature of Time, Prana, & Meditative Practices…
    Time is not only strange but must be constantly kept up with. Because when X being the only measurement undoubtedly is on a constant move. The concept of time can become difficult and riddled with variables. Down to the almost unimaginable miniscule leap second. There is absolutely an existing point we call now though. Now,Continue reading ““Jon~zo” Journalism ~ Nature of Time, Prana, & Meditative Practices…”
  • Reckoning destiny into a Pillow
    Musing faraway rapt, to reckon with now. Pondering ceaselessly with no avail. Constant brainstorming is our now. It will always be so. Love is future, pain is the past. Hope is dangerous because expectation value concept. Life is the answer here… Children, Nature, You, I, are under a watchful eye. It’s constant, yet holds noContinue reading “Reckoning destiny into a Pillow”
  • Inner Workings of the Opinion
    “You always own the option of having no opinion. There is never any need to get worked up or to trouble your soul about things you can’t control. These things are not asking to be judged by you. Leave them alone.” ~ Marcus Aurelius

  • Beautiful Life
    An ode’ to the living… There is a crossroads, in the mind.This place is actually hard to find.Unsure if it was a left or a right.One will search for crossroads night after night.Until a day comes to slow the ride.The day one notices there is no crossroads to hide.There stuck you see “This crossroad wasContinue reading “Beautiful Life”
  • Interactive Magazine
    A monolith of various form. From the abysmal mind was born. To weave tales of history, mixed with lies. Places where lost treasure may actually hide. To spoil attention at its finest endeavor. Rather odd to have this powerful tether. We don’t bow down to worship thee. Rather we carry you personally. Most attempt toContinue reading “Interactive Magazine”
  • 2020 Summer of Tough
    The schism that divides us must fall.For indeed it will concur all. Malice petty, enormous, or nigh. Without companionship we will die. For it’s not only about the ones we love. It resides in more than something above. It is always here and now. People just don’t realize when or how. A place where pastContinue reading “2020 Summer of Tough”
  • Reviews In History
    Found this in my memories from a year ago. A rough day in 2020… Blank it, wipe it clean. That drunkard dream of what it seemed. Eyes stare into the distance. See no hope for resistance. The entire species lost its mind. But not of the insane kind. That would require some kind of repeat.Continue reading “Reviews In History”

    Pacifico used for; Disenchantment Bay, The Hubbard Glacier, & Hurricane Andrew… Departure: May 21st 2005Port: Seattle, Washington.~ MS Oosterdam ~ The one time I went West. I went about as far Northwest as a traveler can go… To get there, that was damn near a tragedy though. Hurricane Andrew rolled the seas. I remember windsContinue reading “A Hymn For Salvidor Dali”
  • The Epic Nightmare
    With the longest days of the year behind us we move towards another new Autumn. Before the dog days of Summer are upon us I figured “Why not start the outline for inspiration on new plots to begin? Soon enough everyone will be in the throes of it, inspiring others to automatically begin thinking aContinue reading “The Epic Nightmare”
  • The Rock Circle
  • High and Low, Life Climbing…
    Living life is important, remember to have some fun. The special part isn’t just what we become. It’s the journey there too, the one before we’re finally done. Though we do live each individual day under a revolving Sun. Our minds reside 2 decades into the past, like the future visiting 2001. Anything before thenContinue reading “High and Low, Life Climbing…”
  • The 4 types of Self…
    When figuring out you, I, and we. Try remembering me. The one who always deals with change. Act accordingly with each word exchange…

    Triggers come in many shapes and various forms. What I aim to create here is a playlist series that is public and collaborative. Making a series of ever growing playlists that help inspire certain thought and emotion. ‘Triggers’ is the first in this series. That’s a pretty broad category. By all means if it’s anContinue reading “Electric Icarus Project ~ Triggers (Playlist Series)”

    Stares at back of hand. Flips Hand Over… The sojourner, Shamen of Foresight and Empowerment. Shadowed by The Dancer of Life. Followed by The Ancestor of Tribes, family, and other fellow kin.

  • Tales of Moths
    Pure daylight, closest to Noon I would say. Upon the entrance lay the moth; black, white, and grey. I finished the cleanse, blew out the candle with no delay. For I had decided my work done for today. Once finished I would declare all I could to need to say. Taking out the remainder ofContinue reading “Tales of Moths”
  • Way of the Ancient Triad
    When all had begun there was Chaos, Gaia, and Tartarus. These all being important parts life would supply for us. Chaos to help everything begin and create. Whether big, small, mundane, bad, and even great. Gaia being the place to be, stay, and call our home. Supplying a life to live with experience when weContinue reading “Way of the Ancient Triad”
  • The Planet Namesake
    In a not too distant beginning there was a boy named Saturn. He looked up, and said this area’s the name I have learned. I’ll take that as the name I’ve earned. Later in life he says, “You Jupiter my Son! This area will be the namesake you have won.” Jupiter grew up to haveContinue reading “The Planet Namesake”
  • Sound of the Wheel of Return…
    The endless wheel of return. Karma to some, the long awaited patience earned. For deeds done both right and wrong. That being the tuning for each individual song. Something beautiful, or occasionally wrath. All depending on how someone decided to take a path. Things will be gained and lost too. That which is the paymentContinue reading “Sound of the Wheel of Return…”
  • Time of a Star…
    A star may in fact already be dead. Thus remaining visible because of light speed instead. Something we never need to dread. Knowledge of this is a fact that time can stop. Not ways of the everyday, use of a simple hop to hop. More so in a way we’re not allowed to drop. FromContinue reading “Time of a Star…”
  • The Melting Shade of Moonlight
    A kingdom where Luna can bless us with her grace. Regardless of any human mistakes. There to remind us we are not a disgrace. Sol to remind us of the day to day. The more ordinary life, so to say. An ethical mundane routine, until we grow grey. Still equally import, simply another way. SomethingContinue reading “The Melting Shade of Moonlight”
  • Kiss of the Cosmic Wind
    Now her strength has set her apart.After metamorphosis a migration to roam.She heard the call deep in her heart.The path back that always leads home.Again knowing how and where to start.Living to help guide others around a dome.Understanding how to navigate the chart.Drifting elegant under Moon and Sun.Gracefully able drift, float, even dart.From the experienceContinue reading “Kiss of the Cosmic Wind”
  • Love’s wild warmth tamed…
    The flame of love that grows and reaches high. Something that leaves no one asking why. The truest form of what we know. What comes from inside, learning to let grow. A feeling that makes the heart race. So special it can be read on a face. Most important learning how to love oneself unconditionally.Continue reading “Love’s wild warmth tamed…”
  • Pitfalls of the Stigma Triumphant…
    Fear of success is the shadow of triumph. It is merely nothing but another minor hump. Without humility or cause, we can become riddled with flaws. Through every dark lurking shade has another way. It becomes a brighter Sun for each passing Day. What aligns and fixes itself won’t always quit. Almost an unethical feelContinue reading “Pitfalls of the Stigma Triumphant…”
  • Emperor Race For Night Sky…
    With such tender ears the calling was easily taken. A race to have, taking traits for archetype making. Before knowing what was in store, “Yes!” was said because this is something any Hare will adore. At the top the instruction’s were so. The 13 of us down the path we go, cross the finish lineContinue reading “Emperor Race For Night Sky…”
  • Floating Rock Syndrome…
    There on a floating rock was this thought. “Could this truly be all I have ever been taught?” That answer being a definite yes. Yet unfortunately, this answer would not much impress. For this was absolutely not suitable in form of what question was originally saught. One usually loves all, even with the palm ofContinue reading “Floating Rock Syndrome…”
  • New Moon, Ox Lunar New Year Wishes:
    That everlasting eye with aye. A price we pay. Metanoia, the existence for a metempsychosis stay. For things we do, write, even moreso say. Spelling still, remember is not always a curse. A blessing if it actually works. Fortunately for behind every veil, there will be a seam. There which has yet another person’s dream.Continue reading “New Moon, Ox Lunar New Year Wishes:”
