Hello Orange County!

1-4-16

Today is Monday and its the first Monday of the new year! People are scurrying off to work and getting used to being on the grind again!

As for me, I sit at home looking for a job over the internet.

I’m a broke, no-job-having ass fool. But hey, I can still speak to people around the world via WordPress right?

I don’t know what I am getting at. I start school in about a month. Hopefully only have one more semester at Fullerton College, a junior college very close to the Cal State Fullerton.

This is the winter time blues alright. my cat just died. that really sucked. here’s a picture of him: Ludwig_2015.JPG

Right now in the news, uhm, well there is a lot going on.

One ‘trending’ story is the so-called patriots that are occupying a federal building in washington. thats garnering a lot of attention.

Saudi Arabia just executed 47 people in one day. Iranians stormed the Saudi embassy and basically burned it down.

Well, I will keep scouring the internet for news and relevant information for your life.

Follow my blog! I typically write about the Southern California area, events, artists, music, skateboarding especially.

Take it easy guys.

The Greatest Women I Never Met

The Greatest Women I Never Met

taught me who I was.

before we met face to face

she brushed me off with a shrug.

She saw what I had to say and did not agree

that I was someone in her life that she would like to keep.

The Greatest Women I Never Met broke apart my dream,

that you can do and say what you want and not have to worry about a thing.

Monday September 28th- What are you and I really doing today?

The Blood Moon last night symbolized the transformation of darkness to light- the deepening of blackness to complete obscurity, and then to the eventual unveiling of a bright white light.

We can all be seen as this- life breaks us down and puts a shadow over our mind, and suddenly we are found in a solid black abyss of sorrow and confusion. But from this, a cleansing. We are given the opportunity to resurrect anew.

The hardship of life for each of us is a great opportunity to understand the sorrow of others and why our help is greatly appreciated.


Southern California is going about its regular routine today. People attending to their jobs, students flocking to class and filling the libraries. There is always so much going on it is hard to really understand what kind of progress is being made by our society as a whole.

Some would say we are laying the foundation for a better tomorrow for ourselves and for the next generation, others would say we are fighting injustices and securing the well being of those that are less fortunate than most in today’s society, such as minority groups, the homeless, and orphans.

Whatever we are doing as a whole, however, depends completely on ourselves and how we are reacting to the world around us. While there are people who wish to continue to control the masses, through popular culture and other ego-entertainment, there are those wishing to free others from suffering, those trying to awaken others who are still asleep.

Each day we build upon the efforts of yesterday, and we are always creating and destroying. Ultimately, it depends on ourselves. The greatest work we can afford the world is the work we conduct upon ourselves; the spiritual path of compassion, understanding and love.

When we understand that each of us plays an intrinsic role and we each have a great responsibility, we will all start to make the world a better place, and the collective unconscious will, more and more, begin to heal the wounds made upon this world, the wounds of hate and selfishness.

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Rumi

Contemplations on the world today

We all need to do our best every day to make the world a better place. there is much sorrow and grief constantly occurring. Only when it is occurring to ourselves do we remember the pain it brings. When we overcome sorrow we feel humbled and we receive new strengths we didn’t believe we had. Let us not forget the trouble brought upon by sorrow. Let us lift the weight of sorrow off of others, because we know how it feels to be in their position.

Let us forget about our selfish desires. Let us remember how to live. let us reconnect with the Earth.

Only when we meditate can we gain a birds eye view of life. By resting in great natural peace we can go about our world with our minds at peace, which will lead to world peace.
