Hello faithful few, its that time again. This week's post will be really short and sweet. Next week I will bring to you guys some very good thought provoking food for thought. I just wanted to let you guys know that I was extremely moved by Obama's acceptance speech and I am glad that I have had the oppurtunity to live to see this happen in my lifetime.

Until sometime next week, namaste and stay strong...

Hello faithful few. How is everyone doing today? I hope all is well with you guys. Last week I talked to you guys about going to school and getting my rear in gear. I am still all about that but today I find myself amazed at how simple things can affect us in such adverse ways.

Today one of my buttons on my remote stopped working. One button. Its not at all that serious but for some reason I could not and can not shake the feeling I am having about it just randomly stop working. I mean I used it yesterday and it worked just fine. Now today it wants to just cease to functioning.

I focused on it for awhile and tried to come up with some sort of solution as to why. I also tried to remedy the problem but to no avail. I finally relegated myself to the fact that it is what it is. I am awestruck as to why something like this could get the best of me. Does these things happen because we pride ourselves so much on how strong we are mentally? How much we know? How much we have learned in our lifetime that sometimes simple things such as why a button doesn't work or where our other sock went bothers us to the Nth degree. It kind makes the whole " many to screw in a light bulb" joke relevant. I know what you might be thinking, "where is this coming from?" But this post I just needed to air this out so I could let it go. Next week I will have a normal, more engaging post for you guys.

Until next week sometime, namaste and stay strong...

Hello faithful few, its that time again. Well its almost that time again, when schools begin or go back in session. I am hope that this time next year I will finally have myself in some one's grad school. I really believe that I need this for myself. I need to get my act together so I can finally achieve my second collegiate goal. I think it will happen because I want it. I mean I really want it.

I have been looking at schools in the south and the midwest. I have heard from people that I know and former professors that schools in the midwest and the south are great places to attend grad school. I now need to research more of these schools and probably visit a couple and maybe try getting in contact with some department heads and see what they look for in a portfolio. I have been working on mine but I really need to tighten it up. I want to be able to present a cohesive and substantial body of work to these schools. So I really need to get cracking.

Next week I may have some pics of some new work or sketches for you guys, OK.

Until sometime next week, namaste and stay strong...

Hello faithful few. Its that time again. I had alot to talk you about but I am not going to talk about it today. Instead I am going to save it for another post and reserve this space for a more somber note. I am devoting this space to the memory of Bernie Mac who passed away this morning at the age of 50 due to complications of pneumonia.

Rip Bernie Mac

Hello faithful few, its that lovely, lovely time again! This week I want to take a departure from my normal ramblings and talk to you about friendships or more importantly friends. I am not going to talk too much about it because I don't want it to end up being long and drawn out. But I am going to devote a smidgen of time to it.

defines friend as: 1 a- one attached to another by affection or esteem 2 b- acquaintance

I pride myself on being a good friend but more than often I find myself engaged in discourses about my worth as a friend and/or how good a friend I am. Like I said I consider myself a good friend but by no means does that mean nor do I equate that to mean that I am a perfect friend. For as we all know and are aware of; NO ONE IS PERFECT! Its only in these certain situations that my true loyalty as a friend is called into question. I really try to do right by my friends at the risk of not trying to change who I am or compromise my own integrity. Its only so much you can do to keep up your end of the friendship. Only so far you can go. Only so far you can go to reach a compromise or a resolution to you disagreements. I guess sometimes, its just meant to be that friends dissipate from time to time only to either come together in a stronger bond or truly move on.

That's all I have for now. I told you guys that I didn't want to draw this out so I am going to leave on that note.

Until sometime next week, namaste and stay strong...
