MORE RANDOM GOODNESS

  • ...[from a recent journal entry] 8.05.09 2:55 pm

"Purpose"
Poetry is literal expression, vividly professing emotional, visual concepts and perceptions...poetry elicits our imperfections...conveying our flaws in each verse, each lyrical wound exudes a commanding verbal presence; a portrayal of our history's pains, struggles and blessings; our deepest thoughts and concerns distressingly in tuned,we are society's lyrical vessels...But what's in a word...? You suppose I'm a decent writer, maybe "great" writer even, because I play with big, fancy words; well pardon my vernacular but what is a word, how substantial is a word if it has no profound meaning; what is a thought if it doesn't spark a deeper sense of knowing and thy unknown. I'm a great writer because of how my words make you feel, the emotions and thoughts and uncertainties I provoke from deep within; that's what makes a paramount writer. Intelligence is not defined merely by obtained knowledge; quite simply its how one utilizes and transforms that knowledge-yes thy interpretation is the genius of it all. The ability to think and equate and analyze and question for yourself is one of the greatest and most valuable abilities one could and should possess. God created us all in perfection and purity; still we are not perfect but we all are unique and talented in one way or another. Some of us just take longer realizing what that skill is. Some skills we're born with whereas some skills we learn and perfect overtime but nevertheless we are naturally gifted and all serve a purpose in this world before we leave this world. -Mellow

  • TUNE INTO YOUR WORLD [News issues affecting cultural society]


WASHINGTON (CNN "Read my lips: No new taxes."

On Monday, the White House sought to shoot down concerns that middle-class families may face a tax increase in order to combat rising deficits and a struggling economy after its two top money men floated the idea that tax increases to fund the nations economic recovery could extend beyond the wealthiest Americans. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama said over and over that middle class--which he defined as anyone making less than $250,000, you will not see your taxes increased by a single dime. Not your income tax. Not your payroll tax. Not your capital gains tax. "No tax", he said at a campaign event in 2008. But as with most presidents dealing with soaring deficits, raising taxes is often a necessary evil, no matter the political costs.

  • GET IT RIGHT, KEEP IT TIGHT [Fitness/health tips and exercise]
"The Plank"



Get into a pushup position on the floor. Now bend your elbows 90 degrees and rest your weight on your forearms. Your elbows directly beneath your shoulders, and your body should form a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold the position for as long as you can. Your goal should be to hold it for two minutes; the average beginner can hold for up to 30 seconds. Set time goals at the end of each week.

MI AMOR

  • CUPID [Love letters,songs, artwork,poetry, prose, quotes]

"Cognitive Utopia"


As we journey through cultivated paths of experiences, emotions, thoughts and hazy expectations, in the midst we're met with an unpredictable bliss, our private utopias engulfed in our natural schemas...set in a world which we create in our memories, a dimension beyond thy human imagination...a mentality solely gained through our subconscious...it is in this place where hearts race, minds coast and spirits collide; where we discover the ideals of our existence. Here we search for meaning and understanding, here we cease to judge and increase the effort to learn...this is where love is created and embraced...where rules of society diminish and truth and faith are the only resorts to ultimate freedom, happiness and peace overall; thy utopian, euphorian, humanitarian dream; my dream for you, for me, for us....-JaiNichol
