*Untaming the beast*


❤ God, I missed blogging!

In the world of social media, everything has become so tamed! We think we’re getting wilder, that we’re coming undone, and yes we are, but within yet another form that’s restraining our movements - within a system with dos and don’ts, an order of some sort that disguises itself as a ‘friendly helper’, someone that is going to lead us through the maze. Hold our hands, show us the way - guide us so we won't go crazy in this modern era of Instagram stories, and Facebook Lives, Youtube channels, and TikToks. But on the way, as we walk this guided path, so brilliantly ‘illuminated’ by our friendly guides on a commission, we get locked into just another set of rules, how we should do things, and this is cool, this is not cool, this is in, this is out, you have to do this and oh my god don’t do that! Once again the form seems to have ensnared us into its grip. 

And oh yes, it for sure is a grip. If you don’t do it this way you won’t succeed. If you don’t use this design, or this template, or this trajectory, or this proven system, you won't make any money! 

Ohm Goddess, will this never end?!

I miss the 90’s (sniff sniff). As I sit here typing away to my soul’s contentment, I’m allowing myself to wander into a hazy nostalgia. The 90’s of edge walkers and grooves, and people doing it their way. Of course, there were main streams in those days as well. And edge walkers who became mainstream. But that's the way of life. But there were all kinds, and colorings outside the lines, everything was not beige and muted, with golden rims. There was a freshness, newness in the air every day, and independent thinking, and toughness, and bruised knees, and ugliness. All this exists today as well. But do we show it? Tell it? And I mean express it, without it being a punch line in our sales copy, our marketing pitch?

That's why I'm blogging again!

It's free and wild! It doesn't have to be a wanna-be popular post with millions of likes. It's just down-to-earth 90's style writing. Maybe, no one will even read it. Ever! Maybe someone will. One day. Perhaps. Perhaps not. Je ne sais pas.

So I'm jumping on the blogging train again, to get my creative juices flowing! Hell yeah!

I feel like a dam that's about to break.

Perfection has always been the creatrix's poison.

So we say 'No thanks' to that.

And instead, drink from the fountain of life

that's juicy and ever-flowing.

Sweet and succulent.
