i am underwater. when you immerse yourself in your real work, many things can surface from your subconscious. in the midst of an enormous amount of work, what has come to the surface tells me that i have given too much attention to non productive energy around me. i have the clear realization that the only thing that matters is quietly working and minding my own business with compassion. all of the folly of human existence and emotion steals your time and as much as I have absorbed that energy and utilized it in my work, i cannot continually be the sponge for all that encircles my life. become aware of words. become aware of the energy your words leave behind. choose your words carefully when you speak to those around you. they have the power to be destructive. they have the power to inspire. they offer a gift of compassion and education . They are a bridge from cynicism.
