Projects for the New Year

Life is full of surprises, and I can’t say with any certainty what I’ll be working on tomorrow, much less a year from now. But as I mentioned in my last entry, I’m filled with an incredible passion for life that exceeds anything I’ve ever felt before. I want to live, to dance, to sing, to play, to work, to reach all of my aspirations in life, and to dream of wondrous dreams that others would not dare to imagine! All of this inspiration is starting to come into clearer focus now, to the point where I can narrow it down to three major projects that I’ll likely be working on in this new year.

That Which I Seek

Cult of Ecstasy: This is the symbol of the Cult of Ecstasy, one of the Traditions from Mage: The Ascension.I’d like to start this entry with a quote from the Charge of the Goddess:

“If that which you seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find it without. For behold, I have been with you from the beginning, and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.”

In other words, if you’re not happy inside, then nothing on the outside can make you happy. Some people, I suppose, would take this as an excuse to abandon revolutionary pursuits and just sit around contemplating the inner peace of their navel. But for me, I see it as just the opposite — a powerful lesson in the most powerful source of all revolutionary action.

Another Oak Falls

Leaning Oak: This is a photo of Leaning Oak that I stumbled across on MySpace. Gone, but not forgotten...A few months ago, I wrote about a tree friend of mine that had been cut down on Oak Street. Alas, another of my favorite trees has fallen — this time, the one on Campus Lake that I call Leaning Oak.

I envision a world…

Will Battle Evil For Food: This is a comic that I found at a co-worker's desk at the Co-op. At this point, I'd almost consider it an autobiography... :)A lot of people complain about the problems in today’s world. Not a lot of people spend their time articulating their own comprehensive vision for how the world could and should be if we’d live up to the best of our human potential. Since my last entry pretty much raged about how we should do something positive and revolutionary, I’ve decided to re-articulate some of the general principles or practices I have in mind when I talk about revolution.
