IT is true

Life is but a journeyIt is now time to celebrate the life of my brother. I am processing this one day at a time. It is hard to realize that no matter what are plans are life throws us constant curves and challenges we never would have imagined. It is hard to see my once large family dwindling in number. How I used to love to see him at family functions and gatherings. He was smart, funny and very charismatic. He was a good husband and father and grandfather. The world is a lesser place without him.
Oregon MilitiaIf Oregon Militiamen are Terrorists why is it that there are no deaths being reported, no people beheaded, raped or burned alive? That they occupied an EMPTY federal building, a protest in which no one was injured or killed? Why is it people like Montel Williams are calling for their death? This "Terroristic" activity has not burned or looted 1 business? Yet other groups are calling for the death of police, and even white people in general but somehow that narrative is being skipped over? How do people not see the hypocrisy in this?
The PennyHave you ever noticed that penny on the ground? Most people just pass it by. They view it as not worth their time, that it is covered in yuck and therefore holds no value but here is the thing. It does have value if for no other reason that it is currency, never mind it has a history, it has a purpose and that it has been dropped, discarded and forgotten all of that does not negate the fact it still has worth.
Have you ever noticed that excitement a toddler has when discovering that discarded and forgotten penny?
Maybe you even told your toddler that is yucky, put it down. Did that diminish it's value to the child? The Child saw a penny, and it had worth not because it was currency, but for one simple reason, it simply was. Over time we lose that enthusiasm for simple things, such as that penny. Not because it is yucky, but because we are taught it is yucky and not worth our time. Over time, we apply the same thoughts and actions to people.
All people are like that penny, we start off
Destiny vs FateSome people believe Destiny and Fate are the same....I beg to differ.
It is the devil in the details or simply the spin in the yarn.....it is my belief that your Fate is what you are born into, it is the beginning and underlying theme of your life's story. It is the one thing you do not control. Destiny is the outcome of your fate....what you do that leads you to your eventuality. Destiny is something you decide, for each decision you make leads you to your destiny. So Fate is saying you were born into mediocrity....Destiny tells us what you did with that for better or for worse, becoming the star of your dreams or the victim of your own tragedy.
So the question is what is keeping you from your destiny?
The short answer is you.
Let it sink in and get back to me
Ugh..........I am going to stick with my original diagnosis made in 2003.....I am Lazy....this is a debilitating disease. The only real difference between then and now - is I am a Lazy Pirate today
Mystery DiagnosisFor the last month I have had to sport a Pirate Eye Patch because my Left Eye no longer wants to sync up with my Right Eye.
Rather painful at times, and others just a nuisance of double vision and nauseau.
My first MRI Last Week Determined that it is not a Brain Tumor in my orbital socket, I have a sinus infection but that is it. NOW I have a diagnosis of (drum roll)
What can cause this?????
The most common of these are infection, trauma, and tumor. In some remarkable cases, mild head injury can produce an isolated unilateral or bilateral INO
What does this mean for my ART?????
Very hard to stare at a computer for extended periods of time.
So it is taking me much longer to finish anything as it requires so much effort - never fear I will finish my to do list this year - Promise!!!
In the mean time I have to have another set of MRIs with and without

Will you stand?Something to think about - when you hear me rant about politics, it is not because I want to limit your rights, or keep you from enjoying any freedoms.
As many other veterans can tell you - we served and honor our oath to defend the constitution. We did this regardless of political views, personal desires, financial gain.... we did this to serve our country, to protect the very freedoms so many take for granted.
The Constitution is not an aged worthless relic, it is the very cornerstone of what America is founded on. So when you hear me rant - it has nothing to do with who can love and marry, it has nothing to do with the guns you want to buy, it has nothing to do with my religious belief which is a very deep and personal thing to everyone - yes even atheists. It is because I see it every time I turn around, the slow erosion of freedom....the trickle of legislation and agenda of those we send to washington to work for us instead they work hard for themselves, they try to negate the con

Make deviantArt a fucking better place!!! Part 1Okay, guys,
I think I need to be hard. I am more than 9 years an deviant here on dA. This is good for me to compare the past and now. And maybe have a clue how dA will be in the future.
I have the feeling dA is getting more and more heartless. And I am not the only one. I set up a little poll, and the few who took part gave me this:
The first years I was here, everything here was great! Great artists, nice people who you could talk to (and who talked with you, TOO!), a lot of fun with the community, reaction on my work, reactions on what I wrote for you, feedback like comments and faves and so on. But this has changed extremly. I feel lonely here most of the time. I have no Fun being part of this community anymore. (And I think may have the same opinion, as many left the community)
But what can we do?
This is why I will write some journals, all about this topic. I will tell you my point of few, and

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:
1. A detailed literary analysis and trope driven deconstruction of H
