I never claimed to have the answers. I am a fallible human, and I try my best. I try my best everyday, for you.
It’s not easy, but what is?
A friend once told me that we have to take care of each other. Such a simple statement shouldn’t need a disclaimer, however this thing seems to be actually quite difficult. On a daily basis, we are selfish creatures. Each moving to and from our places of work, our homes, homes of others…all to further our own agendas. It is when we step into the agendas of others that we take a huge risk. Will the actions we take translate with the same intentions we set forth? It’s like a Rorschach test: will people see the same thing we do in the same physical object or action? This is a thing we can’t control, and therefore are able only to try our best based off of our own convictions and beliefs.
"It is up to us alone how to be present in a world of others. We fuck things up, we build things. We build things and then proceed to fuck them up." The important thing is that we take care of each other despite all of our mistakes, despite our flaws. Forgive, and love, and tolerate, and practice patience for as long as intentions remain true. This is the thing.
I’ll try my best everyday, for you.
"Whether we like it or not, however short a time we are here for, we are disruptive forces. We fuck things up, we build things. We build things and then proceed to fuck them up. We should always disrupt in a way that gets us love, a good story, hidden poems, adventure, and a peace (however, complicated). To disrupt in an honest way, with best effort, culled from and shaped by the things we have come to know by the disruptions of our friends and lovers, and their friends, and their lovers. We’re all connected in this shamble, but we always tend towards the better thing. The kind act, the loving instance.”
