You have arrived at an unholy destination, and for that, I am truly sorry. But since you are here let's party!!!!
So wtf is all this besides a place for me to reference memes that are staler than recently unearthed dinosaur skin? Only time will tell but if all goes according to plan it will be a blog, a place for sneak peeks, current events when eventing is a thing again, a super secret club where we trade in super duper secret shit, and a place to tell my story.
The one cohesive thread behind all that is that this is a place for community. I want this to be a place where struggles can be shared so we can all grow stronger. A place where you don't have to feel alone, to feel broken, to feel other and if you do, that is okay. A place to scream into the void without judgement and a place to bring light to that darkness. I want this to be a place where people doing rad shit can link up with other people doing rad shit.
To quote a man far better with words than I
Now we the American working population
Hate the fact that eight hours a day
Is wasted on chasing the dream of someone that isn't us
And we may not hate our jobs
But we hate jobs in general
That don't have to do with fighting our own causes
We the American working population
Hate the nine-to-five day-in day-out
When we'd rather be supporting ourselves
By being paid to perfect the pasttimes
That we have harbored based solely on the fact
That it makes us smile if it sounds dope
I have lived a life of privilege and a life of terrible heartache and pain. I am the embodiment of "there but by the grace of god go I". I'm not sure who god is yet but, I do know that I have been saved by the kindness and caring of family and strangers alike. This will be a lot of things but most importantly it is a chance to pay that debt back to the universe. In one of my many journeys back from from rock bottom I had someone say in passing something that has hung with me ever since. He told me "Find your voice and tell your story, it is important. You never know if it could be just the thing someone needs to hear. it may show someone that maybe, just maybe, they aren't alone" So yeah, the main reason I started this blog and why it is behind a member wall is this will be my attempt to tell my story. If you know me, you know my stories rarely follow a straight line. It will come in bits and pieces tangents and track jumps but I will get there eventually. If my story helps just 1 person it is a worthwhile endeavor. I'm not special, I'm just human and each and everyone has a story to tell. I hope this may eventually becomes a place where others feel safe to share theirs. Am I striving to be a successful artist along the way ? sure! But I want to drag as many people as I can with me. Whatever your "art" is, it is worthwhile and together5 we may be able to challenge and break through the chains that keep us from living the life that our hearts long for.
Welp, thats enough meandering for me today. If you took the leap to see why I have a members login, bold move. Fortune favors the bold as they say. Say hello and come back soon.
Be easy. Be kind. Suffer no bullshit. Until next time friends.
