The recent death of my father started me questioning some of the principles I have stubbornly held onto for so long. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that my beliefs were ill-conceived or without merit. They were well-earned and the branding of them can still be felt on a clear day.
But despite my continued attempts to deny this fact, the canon remains; control is an illusion. It’s quite possibly true that even with dedication and determination, we can only influence the course of our own lives.
Too long spent trying to restrict the unenforceable actions of others, I have now come to the realization that all my actions have been futile and my sacrifices for not. It’s time to throw caution to the wind and yell, “Fuck It!” I only know one way to be and that is all in. So, here goes….
Free The Truth is dedicated to peeling back socially constructed shells and reveling in the beautiful mess we hide behind tough skins. It’s Real, It’s Personal, and It’s All Bull Shit! Never forget that last bit; I try not to.
You see, everything I have ever thought, seen, or believed, or ever will, is utter poppy-cock. So many times in my life I have looked back and thought to my self, “What the heck was I thinking?” Everything that we know today is shaped by our environment and the personal experiences we have had to date. Which includes being unshaped by the things we do not yet know.
If I am lucky enough, that environment and those experiences will be so varied, that everything I have ever believed will have been flipped over, turned inside out, and represented to me anew. (Just about the time I think I have it all figured out, of course.)
However, just because it’s bull shit doesn’t mean it isn’t true. On these pages I give you the words I live by on the subjects that inspire me.
Beware, I am not afraid to flip-flop when the intelligence changes or the pungent stings of enlightenment’s back hand find me eating pavement out of my ass.
Thank you for your patience as I begin this new adventure. May you find something useful on these pages before they pass their usefulness to you.
