Sin and Evolution

Both sin and divine truths are essential ingredients in the search for meaning. Our mistakes is the mortar of our reality, reinforcing the pillars of our existense. Whitewashing them dilutes who we are. Eliminating them prevents our growth and this growth relates to the weight and quality of our virtues. Evolution has been replaced with stale reproduction. With social safetynets there is no need for virtues and all mistakes that are erasable lead to the decay of our nature.

I took this picture through the space between a door and the ground of an old plantation house in Virginia. My lens, a lonely invader searching for lost little bits of me. Scent of old wood and fresh rain perfumed the air. The old bricks and worn threshold stone mark the moments in time that still live inside of us. There is good and bad inside us and it will always be there but we are moving farther and father away from the human experience when we try to deny either one of them exclusively. All is lost when we attempt to erase any knowledge of our inevitable end and cleanse the world of pain and ugliness.

"A politician divides mankind into two classes; tools and enemies."  Friedrich Nietzsche
The biggest threat to freedom next to ignorance is indifference.  Picture was taken with phone from on the road.  Not the clouds but what they represent in my subconscious troubles me.

Dreams On The Road

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” 
― Jack Kerouac

Visited Jack Kerouac's birth home, 9 Lupine Road Lowell MA.  From my car I watched the sun fade over it's worn exterior as my heart filled with the longing for adventures "On The Road" 

I See YOU!

"Insanity in individuals is rare-but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule."  Friedrich Nietzsche
See yourself for the first time with courage.  Only then will you realize that you are, in fact, intact and noble.  The world is a story told by faceless voices.

Fallen God

"Limited in his nature, infinite in his desire, man is a fallen god who remembers heaven."    Alphose de Lamartine
Seek inward for what you desperately need.  Wake up from this dream!

Master Thespian

Theater of life! You are the Master Thespian.  Performing your given script, you recite your lines with honesty and integrity. Playing the fool, the villain, or hero, you are a servant living a dream.  
Become the writer of you. Live live both from the stage and from the seat, for you are alone in the performance of your life. Allowing feelings and openness to take home inside you, need none, but this one single long performance.
