Just a quick share of some of what I think are my best shots. I’m hoping to publish them soon. By all means your input is more than welcome. Take a look and let me know what you think.
Hi everybody. It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog of substance. A lot is going on. Currently I’m on vacation, so I have a little more time to devote to my personal endeavors. The first and foremost being my music. If you look, you will see that I have posted some new tracks recently. Please check them out and hit that like button if you feel so inclined. Seriously though, it’s the only way I know whether or not you are appreciating any of the work that I have done. Your feedback is vital to me because it helps to steer me creatively.
First, let me start off by saying happy holidays, if you are so inclined to celebrate during this time of year. I am an atheist, but I do want to share some positive vibes with you. This may come as a shock to some, but it is something that I have felt for a long time. I know this is offensive or disappointing to some of my family and friends, but I’ve come to this understanding on my own and I’m comfortable with my decision. I hope it doesn’t become a wall between us. It is actually through my lifelong curiosity about religious practices that I have come to this point of understanding. This is the first time that I publicly stated my position. I am doing this is because I want total clarity and honesty between myself and anyone that I interact with. So consider this, for lack of a better phrase, a coming-out party.
A few things have happened to me recently that I wanted to share with you. One of which has to do with the reason I am posting this blog. I have a writer, Ksenia Anske (@kseniaanske), that I follow on Twitter. She is a prolific and enthusiastic tweeter. One day I decided to read her blog. It was one of the best things I’ve done for myself recently. In her blog she discusses the creative process, writing motivation and things of that nature, but what makes it special is the enthusiasm that comes across when you read it. I was inspired by it and it reenergized my drive to express myself. I had come to a place mentally where I had lost interest in posting because I didn’t feel the effort to maintain it was being justified due to the small amount of people that read it. I lost focus on the reason why I posted in the first place. It isn’t about how many people read it, it is about self expression. So I was reenergized as I mentioned before and I am very grateful for that experience. I suggest that you take the time and visit her blog yourself and hopefully you will get something positive out of it as I did. To be honest, what drew me to her was the fact that she resembles my ex-girlfriend. That may be due to the fact that they share a common ancestry, my ex was part Russian and she’s Russian. Hmmm..Come to think of it, they also share that quirky enthusiasm about reading and writing…but let me not drift off of my point, that being, it is profoundly important to give yourself a vehicle for creative expression and to stick with it!
Another one of my followers posted a link to this documentary that she was rather impressed with stating that people are blind that they really need to check out this film. Out of curiosity I asked what was the subject matter? Turns out she was referring to “Zeitgeist”, a documentary that was done in 07 regarding religion, 9/11 and conspiracy theories related to the 9/11 incident. (There are, to my understanding, addendum’s to this original documentary online as well.)
The first section of the documentary deals with the greatest story ever told, also known as the story of Jesus Christ. It goes to show the connections between the writings in the Bible and earlier myths in other cultures. This is something that I was exposed to as a child. I wondered why there were so many similarities between a lot of the things that I had read in Greek and Egyptian mythology and the Christian faith. If one is honest and looks at this with an open mind they will see the connection. This confirmed a lot of the things that I had known already but filled in some of the gaps that I had in my understanding. That was very refreshing.
Getting to the section on the 911 incident. There are some serious questions that need to be answered regarding what happened there. I worked in the Wall Street area for 13 years. I actually saw them building the world trade center. I am not by any stretch of the imagination an engineer but there are certain things that I know, based on the laws of physics, that completely discredit the official explanation of what happened. If you review the footage and the statements of people that were there that day, you will come to the same conclusion that something is not right. Let’s start with building seven. That building was not hit by the plane. It did have fire on two floors but was not touched by either plane. That building collapsed as if it were being destroyed as part of a controlled demolition. The same with both towers. I ask this question, how is that possible? How is it possible that a building that was built to withstand a collision with an airplane, collapsed in a controlled fashion where there was nothing but dust? Just ask yourself, when have you seen an airplane crash into a building and reduce it to powder? I went to the site a couple of days after the incident occurred. There was still stuff smoldering in that pile. Why was that? All I ask you to do is to look at that section of the video with an open mind and try to eliminate the questions that have been asked. You won’t be able to do it because we have been lied to. I will be the first to admit that I was highly skeptical when I heard that people were suggesting that there was some sort of conspiracy involved with respect to 9/11. Conspiracies tend to emerge after major incidents but that does not mean we should completely dismiss them. It is the first mission of the conspirator to marginalize the people that have uncovered their deception. Just remember this one simple rule: if things don’t add up something is missing.
