American Holler

Bloody cowbells leave me be. “Surrender now or follow me!” Parched throats holler, “Come on down! Let us show your soul around!” Pardon, mister, whatcha say? ‘Spirits swallowed every day?’ Why such saccharine in the voice, When presented with such choice? “Chop, chop, sweetie, make some plans. Shout out now, to all who stands!” Reflective …

The Way Within

Is all experience necessary and good? Even if it’s bad? In the wake of so many terrible events in our lifetimes, both local and abroad, small and large, I ponder this. In my own experience I have learned things from my tribulations and come out stronger for it. Is this what awaits us? Coming out …

Choice of Thought

I was just reading David Foster Wallace’s key note speech for Kenyon College, 'This is Water.'

Thought and Heart

I have been consumed lately with the idea of consciousness and thought. Being these 'sentient' beings means having the wares to process information and self-reflect upon it. The fabric of individuality. But a thought is plaguing me: Do our thoughts really come from our own psyche? Our own brains and neurons? What if our thoughts …
