Life is pain


“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” William Goldman

I’m not a big fan of “positive thinking.” Yes, it’s important that we love ourselves, that we try to see all that is good and worthy of gratitude in us and others. I believe in seeing the light in others and offering them the support they need to better themselves.

But I also know that it is extremely important that we be realistic about what is what and who is who.

Too far apart

many“There are too many of us and we are all too far apart.” ― Kurt Vonnegut

I’m writing these words knowing that people from all over the world are going to read them. People of all ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, of different religious beliefs. Most of them, I’ll never get a chance to meet. Most of them, I don’t know how they look like, what’s the thing they want most in this world, or what is it that they’re afraid of… most of them are perfect strangers to me.

Yet, simply by writing these words with these strangers in my mind, having the certainty that my words will reach them, they become a little bit more than strangers. They become human beings, just like myself, and that is one of life’s greatest achievements. Continue reading

Day 26 of 50: Dark Streets/Prepare Yourself for a Heavy-Handed Metaphor

Originally posted on Countdown to COP21:

Imagine you’re driving your car on a dark winding road. You can only see as far as your headlights go, a couple yards in front of you. But you’re at ease driving in the dark because you trust that the road is safe.

That relationship between driver and road is just about the deepest trust there is. In the dark, beyond the beams of our lights, we are effectively blind. But that road was conceived of, and planned, and built by hundreds of people. We drive fearlessly, because that’s how much faith we have in those who paved the way for us.

What if the road drops off into the woods? What if it shoots off a precipice? What if the road builders were totally sadistic, and the road ends at a solid wall?

We never ask ourselves those questions. Why would we? In a world full of chaos and uncertainty, the…

A beautiful life

wanderer“You must give everything to make your life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination.” – Roman Payne

It seems to me that we spend most of our lives searching for beauty. We pursue happiness. We’re looking for that one person to cure us of the need for anyone else. To cure us of loneliness, self-doubt, or negative thoughts. We act as if we’re broken and someone or something is going to cure that.

But isn’t it true that we’re the ones who make life beautiful or not? Isn’t it true that only our thoughts can distinguish between happiness and suffering? That it’s all about us, about what we think and what we feel and what we see. Continue reading

“Security”; The Word of the Day

Originally posted on kendunning:


Following the horrible attacks in Paris I can hardly listen to a radio talk show without “security” being an issue which is brought up.  Greater security, more security, higher security…  And always the means to achieve this desired “security” is presented as more bombings, more troops, tighter borders, more surveillance, more electronic snooping.

Meanwhile, in the Middle East, we have millions of people who have been being bombed, shot at, beaten and starved for over a decade (and in many cases decades).   And for what?  Oil?  Human rights?  Really?   How is security in the Middle East after all the bombing?

Here in the U.S. we have great, inordinate amounts of our tax dollars going to pay for the bombs, bullets, guns, planes, ships, oil, supplies, to keep the Middle East…what?  What are we trying to do that has anything to do with people having a better, brighter or…

Hi bloggies,

It’s been six months since my last post. I had to take some time out – some “blogging rehab” – as the fame was taking its toll on me. I perhaps even knew too much about fashion, and people knew that. But people didn’t respect it. I was tired… when I went shopping, I started to consider awful things like orange clothes, cropped black leggings… brown ankle boots. It was a very hard time for me, but now I am here, stronger, on the other side of the dark black tunnel – all thanks to two cups of green tea every day, LOTS of coconut water, kale, quinoa, almonds, organic meat and vegetables… basically if it’s pretentious and doesn’t taste very nice, I’ve been eating it.

Some new pieces are currently in development for this blog. But right now, I’d like to again focus on politicians – past…
