why focus on the past when you have the future
Been watching these guys for a bit now… they make great music. Marcus King, only 20 yrs old… dude’s gunna be big in the future. Will be one of the greats.
What do I deserve? What does she deserve?
What do I have to offer? What do I bring to the table? What do I practice that makes me worthy of someone of the quality that I want?
I don’t ask myself the questions, these questions that truly matter. That make a difference in the way I live my life. Too busy trying to keep my thoughts unclear.
Recently a person whom I’ve been friends with since elementary school decided to stop being friends with me because of my social and political viewpoints. It doesn’t really bother me all that much that we’re no longer friends… what bothers me is how that person came to that conclusion (to no longer be friends). That person did so without even challenging my viewpoint(s) - just completely refused to actually debate me on the issues and viewpoints I hold. No talking things over - facts, statistics - not even saying good bye. Just completely shutting down.
When you remove yourself from the conversation you remove yourself from the solution you “so desperately care about” - meaning, you don’t really care. You’re lazy. Perpetual degradation of your own intellect. Sad.
I always have a good time visiting and talking to Kraig Ehm of MSU CANR video productions. Kraig has a lot of fun little projects he does - including Spartan Podcast. I’m not sure I collected my thoughts very well in this short interview - would be fun to talk more in the future.

where do i want to be?
we don’t ask ourselves this question enough.
I want to be outdoors
I want to make films, share experiences
I want to travel
...find love and be in it all day everyday.
That’s my manifesto. My goal.
How to achieve that goal?
That’s the fun part
the fear of starting over
thinking of naming him “Mather” - pronounced “math - er” after Mather Pass, the toughest pass I went over on the JMT.

I believe in you.
