Hello, World. I have been a bit ‘holed up’ lately, meditating, looking @ work situation. Reminiscing. Beatin’ back a low level-funk w/ Vitamins, Alka-Seltzer Plus Crystals & Sleeep. Remembering my Friends.
One of the great things that I’ve been thinking on lately: I am so humbled & flattered by the acceptance of my thoughts & words among friends & here-to-fore total Strangers, I am extremely complimented. What started as a bit of a lark, well, grew… curiously. I fondly remember a younger girlfriend telling me of her MySpace connections, and openly asking: Why would anyone want to put themselves out there, on the Internet?!
I mean, Whoa!
Well: She’s gone. (Happy Birthday, April 2nd, LAZ) I got custody of the rescued feline puppy, Annie.
In the meantime, I started to investigate Facebook, which lead me to friends & shared ideas. I learned about ‘social networking’ & being ‘LinkedIn’. I bought a great lil’ 14.1 mgpxl Canon & Upgraded my PC.
I went out to find the World of Political Art.
Somehow: I found @Twitter. I heard of it. I thought, ‘Oh, just what I need to know: where the innane are having lunch.’
I was wrong.
What an arrogant, close-minded S.O.B. I can be. It’s true. & I’ve also noticed, like myself, some of the most open-minded Free Thinking People I: Read & Know & Converse with can be some of the most Obstinate Combatants when perversely, to them, their Core Principals are challenged or even just ‘not upheld’.
At first, I just ‘watched’ @Twitter go by, & bye, started to look. Read. Watch: What is a ‘#’? RT, MT, DM?Wondered aloud if I might inflence someone to get me a date with Jenifer Aniston. Maybe Jen, herself?
Started to see there were real people, Heavy Hitters, speaking to issues & relevance.
I did a stint as the self appointed: Uber-Reichsfuhrer of the Known Universe.
I couldn’t keep up with the @Twitter feed, much less Logistical Considerations on Alpha Centauri.
Now, I have been allowed to grow even more, by making connections with people & organizations & ideas & leaders of same; I’ve been able to transport some of my thoughts & influences if not into the ‘Mainstream’: Well, I do believe I’m being buffeted about by a significantly swollen Tributary, at least.
I spent so many frustrated years. Years where I would read & investigate… Confounded by what I saw as a narrow, competitive struggle between: Information & Receptors & Actors & Authors & Photographers & Editors & On & On, but I kept wondering & evolving. Watching & Sorting, where? what? is the Truth?
@Twitter gave me a platform of intimate discussion & rebuttal & bald faced humor in the face of catostrophic & calamitous, as well as cheerful & courageous Events…. In Real Time!
Remember the Chilean Miners?!? @Twitter & Chilean TV were there for every pebble drop, setback & Ultimate Victory! I’ve been able to connect with, comment on, & engage in direct interchanges with my former Heroes of Info, and learned of so many more innocuous & vibrantly criminal Voices Abound as Unbound May Be.
I noticed many people on @Twitter: Blog. I sought advice from my friend, @Dr.Spaulding & came to know WordPress.
So, this is my simple hope for us, those of you who know me now & will join me in the Future:
Let us Perpetually Search For, Embrace & Share The Truth.
