It is hard to live a magical life in a world that disdains and rejects all that I experience and feel on a daily basis as an aberration, a fantasy or even as non-existent.

So many great artists - musicians, authors, painters, and just great spirits - choose to drown themselves in addiction or leave completely, because the over industrialized and cerebral world that we live in cannot - and more importantly, will not - support the idea of magical humans living in a magical world.

Magical people leave because it is almost as if there is no oxygen left on this planet that they can breathe. It is too alien and harsh to live in a world of Muggles, when you know how it feels to fly amongst the stars and commune with the Divine.

Of course I need to add the challenges of parenting in such a world… how do we preserve the magic for our children while also preparing them for a world which will not respect it?

Russell Brand asked this important question when writing about Robin Williams this week: “What does it say about our society when our brightest lights are extinguishing themselves?”

I do not know what the answer is. But I do know that I want to find one, that I want to continue to create more and greater art and community that nourishes and nurtures brilliance and magic and otherworldly vision. I do not know what form that can, will, or should take, but I know I want to find it. And maybe, just maybe, some of the more adventurous Muggles will join us.

Our very existence may depend upon it.

its weird society sees people with tattoos and modifications as being unclean and poor when in reality its so expensive to get those things in the first place and the aftercare is strenuous and daily and in reality modified people are probably the most hygienic and well off people you’ll meet

amen.

So I cracked three eggs, and every one of them had double yolks. Is that some kind of record? 

I found a giant egg in the nest box today so I cracked it open and it had three yolks in it and I’m just so done with chickens right now. 



Your chickens are nuts.


I apparently need to buy a lottery ticket because reportedly, the chances of getting one double-yolked egg are 1 in 1,000, and the chances of getting one triple-yolk egg are at 1 in one billion.

Knowing you’re going to be so bitter and angry for the rest of your life because of every little injustice. No matter how many times your therapist tells you not to focus so much on those things. How can I not? Maybe the world would be a better place if everyone was more angry at the shit I was angry at. 

yep

Holographic universe experiment begins
The Holometer experiment will test whether our universe is coded into 2-D packets many trillion times smaller than an atom.
A unique experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory has started collecting data that will answer some mind-bending questions about our universe—including whether we live in a hologram.
Much like characters on a television show would not know that their seemingly 3-D world exists only on a 2-D screen, we could be clueless that our 3-D space is just an illusion. The information about everything in our universe could actually be encoded in tiny packets in two dimensions.

SCIENCEEEEE!!! LeafSnap is an app that uses facial recognition software to take a photo of a leaf and identify a tree based off it. You can see above that I gave it one photo and it got the right answer in the first result. I didn’t even give it any info on the bark, seeds or anything- just that leaf. I LOVE SCIENCE!

The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.

One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.

One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.

One of them
Missed his bus.

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.

One’s
Car wouldn’t start.

One couldn’t
Get a taxi.

The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..

Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,

This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
