The following is a paradoxical account of what goes on in my head. Ever changing, ever passionately curious.

Also, disclaimer: Not that anyone spends extensive amounts of time on my blog or anything, but, in the case that someone is offended by a photo, I'd just like to point out that there are some posts shown on my blog that have undisplayed commentary due to the tumblr theme I've chosen.

Powerful piece on this writer’s personal history with abuse and its connection with the Adrian Peterson case.


" You feel the Universe is treating you badly, but it is not. It is treating you the way you have asked it to treat you. You tell the Universe how to treat you when you make choices. When you create suffering, you experience suffering. When you create joy, you experience joy. Sooner or later, you will make the connection between what you choose and what you experience. Then you will choose differently. Karma draws your attention to what you have created. Is your attention not captured when you are in path? Asking why the Universe is treating you badly when you experience painful circumstances in your life is like asking a mirror why you look the way that you do. Your reflection will not change until you change. Karma is your reflection. You can throw away a mirror, but your reflection will be the same when you look into another one. You can blame the Universe for your pain, but your pain will continue. Only you can change that and, eventually, you will. "

When black parents try to raise their kids like white parents

Sometimes what people think is funny on vine really pisses me off. This is NOT comedy.

  • The caption above is racist.
  • The caption above delegitimizes the situation in the video like it is not disturbing

There are so many things wrong with this picture. THIS IS NOT COMEDY. THIS IS SAD. THIS IS VIOLENCE EXECUTED BY A SMALL BOY UNTO HIS MOTHER. THIS IS A MOTHER WHO ALLOWS HER SON TO BE WITNESS TO HER DRUG ABUSE.

Please feel free to add your thoughts. I want to start a conversation about this. 

Men: Not ALL men.
Men to their daughters: Yes, all men. Every single one of them.
