Sandcastles 🏰

Once upon a time, a woman loved a man. She looked at him, he would smile, and she knew Glory. She shared what she could, all she had, and dreams of what could be. He was Everything. He Mattered. Promises were voiced, accepted, made.

Then Truth rolled in.

Uncomfortable Truths. Accompanied by false relationship’s gleam, faux promises, fake sheen. Easy and smooth, to replace the rough and too real.

Truths were walled in, covered with lies to save masks, veneers of comfort, veneers of money. User-friendly surface embraced enablers, enabling betrayal, shocked hurt and disbelief.

How could you?

Her soul whispered. He doesn’t listen, she realized. He won’t listen. He enjoys his misguided revenge too much. It’s ruined, she sees now. His choices… Ruined everything. All they’d built together… Gone. Washed away.

Nothing left, nothing but grains of Karma slipping away.

“Every promise… Don’t work out that way.”🎶

Jeff Ament – Lightning Bolt

I missed being at the Big Spring Skatepark opening in L-town because my Mom is #1 and I only get to see her about once a year.

Luckily, my Homeboy Charlie D. was able to represent for me and Jeff was very kind to oblige.💕
Jeff Ament Nothingman tattoo
“Caught a Bolt of Lightning⚡… Cursed the Day He Let It Go 🎶” is my favorite lyric ever in a favorite of many favorite Pearl Jam songs.

Got the tattoo almost 3 years ago. A friend graciously wrote out the lyric for me because it needed his handwriting. My ‘Girl Kimri Rosaluna inked it into my skin. Someday I’ll be ash yet “Nothingman” 🎶 will resonate in my soul forever.

Thank you again, Charlie! 😁

Universe

The Universe is all of time and space and its contents. It includes planets, moons, minor planets, stars, galaxies, the contents of intergalactic space, and all matter and energy. The size of the entire Universe is unknown.

The above quote is from WikiPedia.
I see the Universe as a metaphor for our mind and its potential. And yet, the more I expect minds to open and expand as we head into future days, the more walls I come up against.

And I don’t get it. I do not understand it when I run into caged minds because to me, it boils down to this simple essence: Without communication, without even trying, how do you know?

I find this caged thought process sad and ultimately boring. Where’s the fun in having no sense of Belief?

Let’s say this is the only life you live. Then why confine yourself in the shadows of single viewpoints? Why not seek knowledge if you have none? Clarity –multilevel clarity– can be so simple to attain. Negative feelings can be banished by open communication; why remain under a cloud of misunderstanding? Even if you don’t agree, open communication gives another a chance to see your view and perhaps embrace it.

You don’t know until you try, and why not try? It might change nothing; it might change everything. But at least you’ll gain knowledge.

And Knowledge… is Power and Power is Energy, and Energy is the Universe, and that… Matters.
