You do not fear the person leaving you.
You do not fear losing the person.
Both are completely inaccurate.

Quiet will be measured, you will be judged.

Be Quiet

Silence... blissfully-cruel silence.
No... applause, cheers.
No... boo’s, critiques.


The silence created when the space of your mind is flooded with so much input,
that it has the eternity of a moment in which to stop and feel the powerful emptiness of nothing.

Birthed from this nothing is an exacting of the task, the thing, the . . .

In many ways

In many ways
I am...

Not here to be convenient
To be accessible

Not here to be the most understood
The greatest intellectual

There is no Guru.

...Lead. Follow. Move.

I love this topic.
I love these topics.

They are filled with you, and me, and we, and expectation laced with deterministic freedom.

Here goes free will, for the win...

"There is no guru".

Then what follows is an empowering message which follows...

...maybe you can get something done today.

So you have heard this before... I am sure one of your more self-effacing friends, colleagues or acquaintances has brought this to your attention. Typically, you have come to them and explained that you have multiple tasks to complete, and a very limited amount of time to complete all of them. Therefore, time is not plentiful and you must . . .

I am done.

...un-fucking brands.



It is the lack of progression.

Progression is alienating.

To progress or not to progress.

...and, hold on.

What am I scripting about?

Ah, yes... Ahem [clears throat]

I am done with Nike!

I like this assertion, it feels right.
It feels good.
I feel stronger for having said it.

...and you know what?

I mean it this time.
They have gone too far . . .
