“Without darkness nothing comes to birth, as without light nothing flowers.”

The problem is the solution.

The solutions problem is fear of the loss of moon light.

Burning the midnight oil once the oil well is dry.

In a world quarantined, by generation.

The solutions problems problem, is a childlike fear of change.

Adults missing their Night Light.

Judging the Future, as if the train will ever Stop.

Watching & Waiting — Confused in the Still of the Night.

The hidden place where Greats birth life.

The reason you are reading: The reason we don’t lose.

The reason why new & old can’t win? …

“The only thing that makes life unfair is the delusion that it should be fair.” — Dr. Steve Maraboli

During one of my first group Bikram “hot” yoga classes I was serendipitously positioned near a male I saw at a party the previous night. By the time the yogini leading our morning class entered the studio he was already sweating profusely & appeared ready to tap out pre-workout!

To my surprise, he didn’t tap out. He fought through the early vinyasa and near the middle of the class I over heard him mutter something akin to, “Please God Help Me!” While completing a challenging pose that tempted him to surrender to the heat & fatigue.


Where Do We Go From Here: Pay Them More!

From the moment I saw the George Floyd video I have been angry, not because the action portrayed in the video was egregious. Which it was. Instead, my perpetual anger stems from the fact that the former officers so callously assassinated Big Floyd on camera!

That was a tipping point. The moment, when brutality resembled something from a Sci Fi movie like Minority Report or an Action movie like Surviving The Game.


Vibrating Our Bones

Some of the most poignant Inspiration comes from a connection to desperation. Even when that, desperation is little more than an echo in our subconscious mind.

Reverberating with our past & vibrating our bones like divining rods in search of New World Water.

Flavored by the Mana, Strange Fruits & Lemonade that provided a path way to the moments thirst. For more, is less, thus it cost at least — the sands of time to prepare a comfortable Feast.

The Games we Play,

In The Key of Life

While The Sand Storms Rage

The Hourglass Stained;

By Indecent Proposals

Perpetually Viewing —

Polluted Pariah’s

Disguised like the Rest

Thus, there is no Rest

Perpetual Motion

In an Ambient Ocean

Surrounded By Sinking Sand

While Dice Roll on the Deck

The Games we Play,

In The Key of Life

To Be Or Not To Be

A Gamblers Conundrum

Smooth Seas or Skilled Maritime

Blue Oceans Or Red

Argo or Astro

I See Land Ahead

Full of Booty, Bread, Wine & Beauty

For All Whom The Riddle Calls

Answer at Risk of Peril

Nothing Ventured — Nothing Gained.

The Games we Play,

In The Key of Life

Author’s Notes:

  1. That said, I aim to add value in ways that expand my comfort zone, while benefiting a wide array of demographics. The aforementioned narrative / concept holds true to this maxim.
  • It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.

Of all the innovations the 21 Century has brought us — few compare to the unfiltered access we have via the Internet today. A virtual cornucopia of information at our disposal reminscient of the library of Alexandria in yesteryear.

With one major difference…

Our ancestors didn’t have reality tv, postmates, social media, viral videos, text messages or the attention span of a Goldfish. Thus, the information they received was relatively balanced & healthy. Whereas today most teenagers & young adults are bombarded with a none stop red light district styled feed.

A feed that is often filled with the proverbial smorgasbord of junk food for thought. Undermining the potential power of instant access to information for the masses. …

Then

An avant-garde exhibit paints the walls of the most decadent museum in the city. VIP guest, city officials, reporters, sponsors & team executives are peppered across the canvas of the room.

“That’s beautiful,” says Ray with a discerning look painted across his face.

In response, the teams community outreach liaison begins telling the soon to be retired All Star Tight End about the artist who painted the portrait directly in RAY ROBERSON’s line of sight.

Unbeknownst to the team liaison, Ray was actually referring to the silhouette of RENA McKENNA; an internet famous social media influencer who was invited to co-host the Team’s Charity Fundraiser with Ray, set to begin after cocktails at the museum. …
