Currently, we've created a new(ish) non physical reality \in our [[mostly] perceived physical reality. There, we try to get other people to hear our thought, read our timelines, read our comments, bread our headlines, listen to our songs, watch our videos, be the coolest, be the most successsful, have the heighest score, have the biggeat number.

Either that, or our outlets sensationalize discourse until we all fell that discourse in our waking physical space.

I don't think its necessary for me to buy into this system anymore, so I'm choosing a path of RENUNCIATION

I am in my parent’s house now reading cards. Mom deals the cards to best a man I am reading against. She pours a bowl of sea salt onto a candle, dimming it. I speak to many in the house about death and BECOMING LESS WEIGHED DOWN by material concerns. To be in the world but not of it. Most seem frustrated by this idea. I go up to the attic and see a baby up there, laying on it’s back. It seems happy. A brown owl is near, watching us.

I am in a large tower that CATCHES FIRE. People in their apartments don’t leave. I descend the stairwell, mounted on a horse’s back.

Rose and I have dinner at a restaurant in Versailles.

AFTER A FAIRLY NIHILISTIC WORLDVIEW AND A HEAVY DEPRESSION THAT WANTED TO KILL ME, I MADE THE CHOICE TO CHANGE MY LIFE.

TO HELP OTHERS BY BEING A SOURCE OF LIGHT, IN ANY WAY THAT I CAN, EVERY DAY THAT I’M HERE. WE’RE ON THIS PLANET TOGETHER..

AS BLEAK AS EVERYTHING CAN FEEL SOMETIMES, I WOULD RATHER PUT SOMETHING MORE OPTIMISTIC INTO THE WORLD. IF PEOPLE WANT TO CHANGE THEIR LIFE NARRATIVE, IF THEY WANT TO KNOW THAT DIFFERENT IS BEAUTIFUL AND GOOD, AND THAT WE ARE ALL IN SOME WAYS WEIRDOS, AND THAT’S OKAY (UNLESS ITS HARMFUL TO OTHERS),

I DO THIS FOR YOU. IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO REMEMBER WHO I AM, TOO. THIS IS DEDICATED TO ANYONE WHO DOESN’T FEEL REPRESENTED OR SPOKEN FOR IN LIFE, IT’S FOR ANYONE WHO FEELS ALONE ALL OF THE TIME AND DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THAT FEELING, IT’S FOR THE GIRL ON INSTAGRAM WHO WROTE TO ME ABOUT HER ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP AND WE PLOTTED HER EXIT STRATEGY, I CREATE FOR YOU AND I OWE YOU EVERYTHING FOR ALL OF YOUR CONTINUED LOVE AND SUPPORT. YOU ARE NOT ALONE; THERE IS A COMMUNITY HERE THAT LOVES YOU AND WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU. IF THE WORLD DOES IN FACT BLOW ITSELF UP, I WILL LEAVEE DECODABLE DIRECTIONS OF WHERE TO MEET ME IF YOU WANT TO JOIN US.

We are all conscious humans who have lived a solitary existence through our own eyes. I try to always keep that in mind; other people have an entirely different set of:
