Being the Blink means a lot of things to me. Growing up as the oldest of 4 I was a caregiver from 6yrs old on. Watching over my siblings kind of crafted my identity from that point forward. I grew up always working with kids, watching them, working with them, guiding them. It was fun. That unending optimism infected my psyche, that endless creativity definitely permeated who I am. So to this day I enjoy caring for others and creating.
It shows in how I create my circles of friends. They tend to lean towards creators. I encourage EVERYONE I know to create, because I know how much it fills my world with job.
Building communities is my thing. I love it. I have my own that I work with and I love to be invited to join, as long as it’s understood that I disappear occasionally AND that I am not 100% active ALL of the time. But I love the interplay of energy of working with like minded and positive people.
Those moments where two, or more, people come together and create those A-ha! moments and create something, or figure something out, it’s pure heaven for me. I love that kind of synergy and shared energy. It doesn’t matter if it’s in-person or online. Community is where I’m a viking.
I love to make things. Whether it’s a doodle on paper, my iPad, origami, sculpt something with sculpey, take cardboard and duct tape and make something, it doesn’t matter. The act of creation definitely fills me with something powerful. I live for those moments. Covid shut me down for over a year and I’m just now (as of June 2021) starting to create again and it’s very stunted and halting. I’m doing it because I need to get ME back, but it’s proving to be hard to do.
I can’t tell if it’s new meds, post-covid, life in general, or what? But I’m having a difficult time creating what I need TO create. That space? That vibe? That energy?
I have recently teamed up with an old WordPress friend and we are working on some projects together. We do daily Google Meets and sit and talk and hang out, and it helps a lot. But that won’t be an option soon, I fear, because my in-office hours are about to resume. So… we shall see.
I don’t think I have anything figured out. I just know that I understand some things better than I did before. But I certainly don’t have any absolute answers. Love is good, Hate is bad, Day is generally brighter than night, Hugs are sometimes fun, Sex feels good usually, and Bacon tastes delicious.That sums up the bulk of what I will stand behind without much wavering, everything else is up for debate. But even those can be discussed.
I think that being willing and open to discussion is how we survive this thing called existence.
No Gods, No Masters means we don’t let anyone tell us that a discussion has come to an end.
So talk about everything. Question everything.
If you are in charge, I need to know who put you in charge and what makes you in charge of ME. If you aren’t in charge of ME then don’t act in charge of ME. I’m really tired of people that live their lives itching to run roughshod over others. It’s like this sickness, this desire for control. I literally have the opposing desire. I desire to see others free from this oppression.
I wonder how much of this drive in me is similar to my compersion. Compersion being the opposite of jealousy. When I’m in a relationship I don’t have a jealous bone in my body anymore. If someone is going to leave me? Then they really didn’t care about me, so why should I cling to them? They weren’t good for me anyway. They were obviously not being honest nor upfront with me about their feelings. So… jealousy just doesn’t work anymore in my ecosystem.
I really think that correlates to my desire to see others free from oppression.
I’m fascinated by reality. As much as I sometimes deplore it. I generally am fascinated by what it represents.
Would I prefer to not have existed? Sometimes, sure. But since I’m here, I don’t plan on ending this ride earlier than it is going to so why not contemplate it, explore it, philosophize it. I love to think about all of the what ifs, and could have beens and what might be going on. What’s happening under the hood that we don’t even know about.
Is there a god? Goddess? God-like entity? More than one? What runs this thing we call reality? What happens after we die?
I love to work with others on projects. Whether it’s making money together or just building things. If you have ideas or like some of mine? Talk with me?! Let’s work together and build something. It’s my dream come true to make something with like minded individuals. Creating that energy that comes from people enjoying a shared creation process is like a drug, and I dig it. Let’s build, guild, and do it right.
I love to love so join my cult… er, group…
This is what I do. If you like it? Say hello!
I hope you have a fascinating life, great day, and wonderful time doing whatever it is that you do.
Peace, Love and Do The Thing!
