Silence As A Condition To Happiness

To be fair, I don’t believe silence is a requirement to be happy.  One can be happy in the midst of a Foo Fighters’ concert (like the one that registered on seismographs in New Zealand). However, I believe that to be able to achieve that level of happiness, one must be able to find that …

Breaking It All Down

I set deadlines for myself on things.  I try not to obsess too much over the future, but it’s important to have direction.  Aimlessness can be fun for a while, but ultimately, the lack of purpose gets to you.  Life should be a blend of kicking back in the moment and taking action to fulfill …

Maybe it’s natural depression. Whatever it is, it’s not working for me.  I’m not giving up yet, but I need to change something. The question is: …

Hope In Hell

In Paul Jenkins and Clayton Crain’s Universe, Tom Judge, via the artifact the Rapture, has the ability to grant hope in hell (or take it away). I often think about the Nineties pantheon or musicians and culture and think I can’t help but find that same concept.  It seems less prevalent today, where corporate culture tells …

Depression

I have suffered a great deal from depression.  At times, I’ve let it define me.  I’ve tied it to specific events or people or jobs.  I’ve blamed a thousand people for it, a million, hell, the entire world at times. It’s a depressing place, isn’t it? The fact of the matter is that it happens. …
