Well sometimes yes sometimes no and that’s the fun of it - I think…
I haven’t written for ages, did you miss me!? The often random often coherent ramblings that I put onto ‘paper’ and post on social media for not only you to read but also for the techno-world to know me better so they can attempt to influence me through their adverts… ( I read Sapiens and watched Cambridge Analytica - eye opening).
Yet I am still compelled at the moment to say my thing, IG (instagram) almost every day, share my views and tell my truths - well for the time being anyway.
My life has been the most fascinating time for me the last few years - maybe the last 4, or possibly nearly 8 after I left Hong Kong. I feel I have come into myself more the last 2, not quite come of age but just figured some shit out and that continues and I doubt will stop until my last breath is taken.
You know those times when you really feel lost and wonder who you are? (maybe you didn’t, I did a few times) and it takes a wee while to figure yourself out again. Often happens after someone dies, a relationship break up, having a child (or 5), a move to another country, change of job and some religious person (insert the one of your choice) knows what else!! Life gets a little topsy-turvy.
At times this up and down, inside out, back to front and topsy-turviness has been a bit frustrating, made more frustrating by those who tell me to not let it frustrate me. To which I normally tell them politely to fuck off and stop frustrating me even more.
See there’s nothing wrong with being in a state of confusion, being uncertain, or being frustrated. if there was then there’d also be something wrong with being in a state of bliss, calm and contentment…
See my point?
What is my point?
Oh life - it’s not a straight line, it might be a bit straight - but oh my (religious figure inserted here) if it was how bored would we all be. It' topsy turvy,
See it’s these uncertainties and changes and random events and frustrations and blisses that keep it fun!
Again, what’s my point??
Life is to experience - life..
Experience all of it whatever that is.
It’s not necessarily about travelling or having kids or being successful or rich or all those other things we do or try to do because we think we are meant to.
It’s to experience whatever is happening RIGHT NOW wherever you are, and whatever you are doing with whoever it might be with. And you know it’s ok to feel and be happy or lonely or sad or ecstatic or topsy-turvy or whatever - that’s what we as humans do….(whole other conversation can be had about humans and emotions and consciousness but not right now!!)….
So go forth my friends and experience YOUR life and it will change in time to come, you can make it change, a change might be forced on you but it is a guarantee that things change…. so embrace, feel, live, love, laugh and do it all on your terms…. in the most turvy-topsy way..
Oh and can I ask that you be nice to the planet along the way and not use or buy so much shit that you don’t really need….. That’ll be great..thanks!!
