Hey, yo whats up? How we all doin? Grim? Or you feel like… not so bad


It may be that the season of the twisted pissers is upon us, historically

speaking but I saw this video of a 3 year old chimney sweep the other day and

was like, “well, we haven’t gone back that far… yet.” and I feel like there

are shreds of hope in that thought.

I do think that hope and love are the most powerful weapons against capitalism

and oppression. This is why I’m still here. I have HOPE. I know that everyone is

just looking for LOVE even if they have the worst ways of seeking it or can’t

express the fact because of overwhelming shame. Hey, I been there.

Any-who… How do we like these end of the month check in’s? Keeping it ~ Low

Pressure ~.

Inspiration / Insight

People like you. Especially when you are curious about them and their

stories. Especially when you delight in sharing pleasures, wisdom, treasures and

treats with them. Sure, there are some rotten apples out there – so damaged that

it’s best to steer clear. But even then it’s probably not personal. And when

good apples have rotten days and lash out, that’s not usually personal either.

Most of the people – like you! They long to tell you about themselves.

Eventually they will trust you enough to listen too.

I am INSPIRED by the picture of Moon Wan biting a zoo keeper.

I am INSPIRED by One Million Roses by Sim Soo-bong. I heard this song first

featured on Oh My Ghost!, a K-drama on netflix and was inspired to learn more

about Sim Min-kyung (Soo-bong) and her innovations within the trot genre.
