There is a garage sale here tomorrow, Saturday, and this room full of boxes HAS to be cleared out and the stuff packed away. It has been out since last March, and as I have walked by it hundreds of times, I have been in a TOTAL state of denial.
Time is up!!!!

The very purpose of spirituality is self-discipline. Rather than criticizing others, we should evaluate and criticize ourselves. Ask yourself, what am I doing about my anger, my attachment, my pride, my jealousy? These are the things we should check in our day to day lives. -Dalai Lama - 5:40 AM - Public
David S Pollack aka Chase Alias hopes to bring to light with his new series, "Chase Alias' Esoterically Speaking Causes his Reclusively Being, 2010-2012", attempts to convey just how backwards moving our cultural standards seem feels to Chase. As a self portrait photographer he look back in envy at the freedoms which artists used to be able to express themselves without having to worry about cultural and even legal action being taken against them.

Because our psyche and souls rarely have the oppurtunity to experience---but seeing and experiencing are the major source of intellect---these become inherent resources, and they are provided by mere existence. -Ai WeiWei

Self approval of my complicated self
Are necessary for me to love
Love is blindness
There ain’t no other love that knows me better
I think about it all the time
And I love the way
The rebel in your kiss goes on forever
I think about it all the time"
A gift ....
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that"
