My First Blog Post

This is actually not my first blog post.

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.

— Oscar Wilde.

This is the first post on my new blog. I’m just getting this new blog going, so stay tuned for more. Subscribe below to get notified when I post new updates.

Dang man, I can’t beat that. Let me find a quote that actually pertains to my personality. I’m like a lot of other people and have so many thoughts and feelings that I decided to do what other people do (the blog). I don’t think there would be anything to advertise on here, so from a business perspective this is pointless. Still, feel free to send me money. (No, it will not be used to support deviant decision making or fallacy of fanatical force.)

This used to be my favorite quote. It still is, but after years of distorted and delusional thinking, I realized that the life I imagined had once been placed in box, somewhat similar to Pandora’s box. When I broke out of my bubble (the place I grew up) and started “really living” in Austin, TX, my way of being was out of the box to say the least. The life I kept imagining started warping into a sunshine daydream, a graveyard full of bass and neon, a pool of marbled rainbows and jam bands, then a circus, a dark void, etc. After being thrown for a loop a few times, rockin’ til the wheels fell off, I got my mind right. Keep in mind, getting it right is a daily task that I take on ‘One Day at a Time’.

Here are some more relevant quotes from one of my favorite author’s that better convey my life today:

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.

The greatest compliment that was ever paid me was when one asked me what I thought, and attended to my answer.

Be not simply good, be good for something.

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.

The question is not what you look at, but what you see.

This guy is good. Reading these quotes again, I considered redesigning the blog and making it all about him. Then he threw me this one…

I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.

Also Thoreau. Similar to Henry, I also prefer my own pumpkin. Though I tend to reference a lot of book’s I’ve read, legends (people) I respect, and thoughts I’ve heard in songs, poems, and rhymes. I’m not always perfect at sighting my work. Keep in my this is not a clinical record, it’s a blog. It’s more like a thought log.

I hope you enjoy it. :):):)
