Follow The Muse

beauty_edited-1

[Photo credit: Eylem Culculoglu] We get the word from Greek Mythology. The muses were any of the nine daughters of Mnemosyne and Zeus, each of whom presided over a different art or science. Basically they inspired and created greatness through mere human artists. They were channels in which to tune your ears and heart as a musician (in fact the word musician comes from muse), or as a scientist...

Live With Purpose

Created by AccuSoft Corp.

By all accounts, Auschwitz was one of the most horrible things to happen on the face of this planet. There were other camps as well that employed such egregious methods, such as Dachau, but the one that stands firm in our collective memory is Auschwitz. Auschwitz is a word that darkens and ends many bloodlines. It is a word that instills the deepest imagery of human suffering in recent history...

New Year, Same Old Victim-You?

How’s the hangover? Writing this is the end to a long hiatus in which I gave up social media and starting working on some bigger projects, namely a novel. I’d like to think this two month freedom I’ve had from social media has given me a new perspective on life—not to mention the continuing formation of my beliefs and interests that has occurred with my nearly obsessive...

Kill Your Distractions

If you have internet, you might be familiar with its ability to be an all powerful distraction machine and/or you are suffering from some kind of procrastination disorder and/or you have not accomplished not even close to as much as you would’ve wanted to at this point in your life. I have learned through my meager experience that chances are if you are under 25 years old, you have even...

Why I Quit University

As I type this at 1:30am on a Sunday night, I gingerly slice up a microwaved cheese-smokey for consumption, and I ponder everything. I have just arisen from bed where my wife is surely still awake due to my incessant back-cracking and shifting. The world is a different place for me now that I’m married—a better place, a stabler place. I now live in a world where I am absolutely...

On The Way

Watch it on Youtube. The story in the video was a collaboration between Kevin Rosmer and myself, but all beauty is to credit him. He is the director. As well, the song is musically produced by both him and myself.  It also stars the darling actress/model Cristina Petruzzelli. Oh, and there is a waterfall. Enjoy! Finally, if you liked the song and wanted to show support for it, you can help by...

How To Be More Productive

Productivity, you heartless wench. Here to taunt me at my late hour, here to scold me for not worshiping at your finely suckled tit. Dear lord, it’s happening. I’m going crazy and this time it has nothing to do with the fact that they cancelled Firefly. If you haven’t been able to tell why this is you’ve done a great job of ignoring the calendar because...

Be An Acorn

foggy

Have you ever failed before? I know that personally, I fail very often. I fail in my attempts to be a better person. I fail in achieving my goals in the time I set to achieve them. I fail at changing unhealthy attitudes. I fail at realizing how often I fail at things. I’m pretty much the worst. Woe is me, and how bitter such woe! This is why I don’t write poetry. That word failure has...
