All philosophy is contrived.

It only becomes truth when it connects with the heart and mind (of an individual — or the masses).

The Geometry of Life

Birth to death — the circle of life.

There is no equilateral in a love triangle.
But there are three sides to the story.
(To every story.)

The dunce cap — the cone of disgrace.

Sacred shapes?

Perhaps.

But all-in-all, what we really want is three square meals a day, a triangular roof over our heads, and a few gold bars in the bank.

And when the final curtain is pulled, a six-sided coffin would be nice, though a four-sided casket will do just fine.

As I rounded the bend the sentry spotted me at the same time that I spotted it, and we froze.

With our eyes locked, I couldn't help but wonder, which of us was the watcher and which of us was the watched?

But the only question that truly mattered was primal and not philosophical: which of us would strike first?

Everything is urgent.

Everything is rushed.

Everything is do it now, want it now, have it now!

Stop.

Openly left.
Staunchly right.

Faithfully theist.
Blankly atheist.

Black-and-white scientist.
Shades of gray artist.

Find a view that's right for you.

But don't tread on—don't trample—the rights of others.

Love doesn't need a story book moment to be perfect.

Expressing love, or being in the presence of love, is a perfect moment.

The trouble with popping your cork (in the company of others) is that you end up losing a part of yourself that you never intended: the respect of others.

"Fundamental change" is nothing more than incremental change with a tactical play and a strategic purpose.

About

Recently I came across the original version of this piece and I winced.

Its dark, overly saturated reds—an attempt to call to the mind the surface of the Red Planet—seemed like a good idea at the time.

Sigh.

Thank goodness remixes aren't limited to music.

At least not in my mind. >^)
