Memory #FridayPhilosophy

I've been thinking a lot about how memory works: the way it can be sweet and nostalgic, or awkward agony. Also the way it can jump into the present, like an eager friend yelling "here I am!" We are so often told that we need to let go of the past, but I think there … Continue reading Memory #FridayPhilosophy

Friday Philosophy…Suffering

It's a part of life, right? Plus, everyone seems to think that artists of any kind have to suffer, a fact I once complained about here. But we do suffer, at times. In the midst of those times, it can feel as though there isn't an end in sight. But suffering doesn't last forever. Like … Continue reading Friday Philosophy…Suffering

Friday Philosophy…Death

Last night, I dreamed I was dead. Not in a grim, horrible way. More in a Patrick Swayze in Ghost kind of way. My main experience was frustration, because it took me a while to realize that no one could hear or see me, and they kept swooshing through my body.

There are little scandals everyday. Big ones, too. If you follow politics, of course you've seen scandals - I don't really consider those scandals, it's more … Continue reading Friday Philosophy…Scandals

Friday Philosophy – Optimism

Sharing some thoughts that provide "back up" to my optimistic nature. 🙂 "Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power." ~ William James "My optimism wears heavy boots and is loud." ~ Henry Rollins "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." ~ Oscar Wilde "A pessimist sees the … Continue reading Friday Philosophy – Optimism

It’s Time for Philosophy, Friday Style…

It is Friday!!!! I would love to say we are on easy street over here, but the truth is that this day has been so bloody packed with chores, I'm ready to fall over. Today's philosophy is all about optimism. I know that optimism gets a bad rap sometimes, but I still think it's the … Continue reading It’s Time for Philosophy, Friday Style…
