A life of courage, joy and independence.

Education

.

My curiosity has lately revealed just how empty my mind really is. The experience is like reaching for a tool you don’t possess and realize you must make do without.

I desire to cultivate a disregard for convention. Not disdain. But indifference. What standard is greater proof than the determination proved of individual will, through honest and proven methodology. Who’s way should I follow ahead of my own carefully evaluated path. When my way proves wanting I must yield to nothing other than sounder reason tempered with honest caution.

Don’t tell me what you’ve learned
I’d rather know what you’ve found

A good college experience is so much more than education.

~

The best part of college was in everything other than the education I refused to receive.

The marriage of poetry and philosophy
Is the surest union

Rather than “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out” I suggest “Burn out, Tune In, Drop Out” as drugs are far less convincing than life experience.

My next profession shall be in the field of demolition; setting charges and preparing mines at the foundation of my every intellectual tower and edifice, striving always to lay asunder anything I hold dear which does not rightly deserve to stand.

We spend our lives bartering our freedom for goods and services.

As a parent I often lament what I failed to give while being startled at what the child has found without me.

~

Doubt is the antidote to certainty. And should be applied in equal measure.

I’m starting to think that YouTube was simply a diversion along the way. Like stopping off to snap photos at the Grand Canyon.
