“When it was over, all I could think about was how this entire notion of oneself, what we are, is just this logical structure, a place to momentarily house all the abstractions. It was a time to become conscious, to give form and coherence to the mystery, and I had been a part of that. It was a gift. Life was raging all around me and every moment was magical. I loved all the people, dealing with all the contradictory impulses - that’s what I loved the most, connecting with the people. Looking back, that’s all that really mattered.”—Waking Life.
For some life is better lived live + wired. I fall into that category. My ipod, my camera, my computer + programs: they both entertain + sustain me. Thus when ipod is on the fritz + there is no music, computer is lacking all programs deemed necessary (photoshop, limewire, proper itunes library) + there is no entertainment…I start panicking.
Some simple fixes here amongst some costly + time consuming obstacles, true enough, so here’s to finding some boundless motivation. Why does my pleasure have so many $$$ dollar signs in it?!
I love everything about this post. The gentleman + camera. Leica. + this: “is someone trying to tell me something? I’ve been lacking anything to say and desire to be very creative…It just hasn’t been working for me. Something funny has been happening though, everywhere I look I see lovely camera related details…”
Currently: Desperate to get excited + make things.
'Things' includes: art, furniture, a new career path, things @ new career, etc etc.
It is undeniably time for a change. My whole body is electric with impatience + I just need to try harder…I’m just not sure where to direct that energy quite yet. Stay tuned, stay posted + send me luck.
Having a new apartment is awesome. The freedom, the limitless options…the white walls?
At first they didn’t bother me, but the more I look at them the more they feel bare. I had said no to paint, but now am thinking HELL YA and always scouring the streets for things that could make great wall art.
It’s a long process, but a good one + I’m now dedicating myself to getting it decked out just-so.
Someone discussing the fact that a commercial spot at the super bowl costs $2.6 million. Like people aren’t seeing your commercials every other day of their existence.
Either way, what was brought up was a very realistic point: why don’t they forget about the commercial spots altogether and send that money to CHARITY?
Can’t say that I am the biggest charity supporter, but I do believe in a certain national responsibility. Or maybe it’s that I don’t believe much in the squandering of money. Regardless of where one falls astride this fence, I doubt very many would fall on the “I want to be inundated with exorbitantly costly commercials” side.
This years commercial break might come with a sense of watchers remorse.
