Jane Collymore here. It’s been quite some time, but in honor of the passing of great revolutionary and advocate for social equality, Nelson Mandela, I have decided to reinstate my blog. A bit of history: I kept a very active blog for my online music community years ago and received exposure in the Seattle Times. Fast forward a couple years, I removed this blog when a few of my “hot-button” posts rubbed a select part of the population the wrong way.
Every action has an equal or opposite reaction. This reality is tethered and interwoven into the very fabric of our beings on both a molecular and external level. Whether we are conscious of ourselves or not, we all move as a unit. Our planet is governed by a set of celestial and man-made laws. These laws, both just and unjust, exist to protect and preserve an order. Now, with all this connectivity and regulation, where does that leave room for individual expression and creativity?
THERE IS NONE. And we are all DOOMED to the shackles of intergalactic obedience until the end of TIME.
The previous line was written in jest. Mostly. However, every now and then, the world spits out an ‘outlier’. That one person who, no matter the obstacle or odds, just won’t die. We all possess that catalyst seed within ourselves. It might be hiding, but it is there, patiently awaiting your recognition.
How will you sow your seed?
Do you have courage to be BOLD in the face of unseen opposition?
Do you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Celebrate the small victories, Farchildren. We are saved by grace and small acts of kindness along the way. I regret my previous decision to allow myself to be pushed into silence by deleting a blog/ project that gave so many a voice and joy (myself included). Thankfully, we are human and we get second chances.
I challenge you to create your own happiness and live there in abundance.
Be yourself, everyone else is taken.
