Things we all know, but occasionally should be reminded of

Whenever a man demonstrates any kind of simple courtesy to a woman, or extends an invitation to participate in any kind of activity – ranging from a full “date” to a simple “Can I help you with your groceries?”: the math says that he does so only because he wants to tap that ass.

It’s not a bad thing, it’s a HUMAN thing.

I love each and every single one of us.

Everything has a beginning…and an end.

In spite of being a so-called Activist and the author of a blog about navigating the collapse of the last civilization; I’m not a radical.  Today my heart is heavy and I wept genuine tears of sorrow, for today; January 20, 2017, with the simple uttering of a few words, we witnessed the death of the United States of America and the dream that was America.  I have to take back all the times I gave the “why I’m not a patriot” anecdote when I spoke, and while I maintain my philosophical and linguistic views on words like that, I also have to acknowledge that even though I don’t believe in countries, I love my country; we were the last, best hope for something besides despotism.  All of that died today, together with the dream that was America and with it, a piece of my heart.

I just ripped open my chest and shared my heart.  It is what we humans do, and through the sadness and despair and hopelessness that is strangling us all, I share my feelings and fears with all of you to let them go and not forget that this is our planet and that we are all we have.  I will not fear and I will not succumb to violence and aggression.  I will be right here, working without rest towards the same goal; to make a choice as a people.  I haven’t failed at the task, the conditions have changed, that’s all.  We could have made the choice, and now we have no choice, but the fact remains:  WE CAN DO BETTER.

I love each and every one of us that share this world.  We are all we have.

THE MATH FOR 2017

Hey, gang! 2017.  It’s here, and so am I.  There no way I could ever forget about you guys; any of you.  You are my rock, my driving inspiration and living proof that we ARE a genetic collective.  This year’s math is a different, as you may have already noticed.  No 500 page thesis, no intense and urgent calls to action and no calculations.  Here’s some new math for us to ponder together:  This year, the math says that 2017 may just be the year that that we make the first blinking attempting to open our eyes together and maybe, just maybe, we’ll realize that we CAN do better.  The very instant that more than half of us realize it; we change reality, and that is beyond cool.

Happy New Year!
