Burning Man: A “Party” On Mars

Without a doubt Burning Man is one of the largest parties in the world, but it is not JUST a party. It’s life on Mars. You roam the dusty surface with other LED creatures as fire explosions startle you from a mash-up of mashups. To your left Diplo is swimming through the speakers of a shark. To your right Skrillex is buzzing out […]

Will I Be Inspired?

Right now, I’m either packing up my tent, driving, or passed out with dirty fingernails. Any-which-way, Burning Man has consumed me, forcing an automated post – a question to my future self, “Will I Be Inspired?” Prior to Burning Man last year, I had just moved into a whole new world, a 23 person artist collective. Everyone in […]

Communication and Optimism

Half way through yet another Mark Monday a friend walked into the café. We had only crossed paths a handful of times, so he was more of an acquaintance, but each previous interaction was always the right balance of amusement and enlightenment. Unaware of my presence, he fiddled awkwardly at the coffee station. An anachronism, dressed like a grandpa from the 1970′s, but with the mind […]

We Only Skim The Surface

My artistic skill lacks the ability to recreate where I was, who I was. Artistic skill lacks the ability to re-create these visions. That is why there is art. It’s an attempt to bring forth what is real. I’m not sure where the visions came from, and that’s what has changed my world. Not for […]

An Enlightened Reading List and Some Videos

Today, I don’t have much to say. However, I’m always asked for an enlightened reading list, so this feels like the perfect opportunity to share one. Here are three authors/books that really helped me ‘level up’ in terms of personal development. I’ll present them in the same order in which I discovered them. 1. Hermann Hesse […]

Losing Your Mind: Techniques For Creative Success

Below is my process to instinctively jump into creativity. Learn from it. Make it your own. Succeed. Learning my lesson from last week, I didn’t think much about this post until it was time to write. Now, with little time, I feel confident because I did two things beforehand – I meditated and I drew a picture.  […]

There I Go Again, Thinking I’m Important

All today I wrote a clever, quotable, emotionally charged, currently relevant blog post. I’ve been thinking about it for two days, agonizing over the argument’s message, its structure, and cleverly crafting phrases that will make people say “Ah ha!”. Well, it’s 6 o’clock at night, 2 hours after I usually publish, and I just deleted it. I feel much better!  I […]

Food & Efficiency

“Everyone can perform magic, everyone can reach his goals, if he is able to think, if he is able to wait, if he is able to fast.” – Herman Hesse Siddhartha Out of curiosity, I didn’t eat food for three days. The biggest thing I noticed was how much I tend to plan my day around […]
