#ChaosAsArt  

So... It's recently occurred to me that I don't really ever post, comment, or plus anything on here like I used to.  I think I'm finally coming to the realization that social media just isn't for me.  Between FB, Instagram, Snap-chat, Twitter.... I just don't interact.

It's nothing personal.  I am simply the type that needs people to interact with ME.  The simple hello, hows it going, how are you... those are things that I'm feeling get lost in this whole endeavor.  Not to say that I don't appreciate being able to see what's going on with people, but I've realized with some, they expect you to follow their lives on what, when, and how they post.  In fact, my sister was just one of those - we had a good conversation the other day, and I think she finally understood that I don't follow her every move on FB.  The amount of pictures that I got texted was amazing, and also showed me how much she actually posted that I never saw.

Now, that doesn't mean that I'm going to delete everyone and everything.  I'll still keep the same role that I have been in for the past year or so, so when I do log in and want to check in, you'll all still be there... But, what that does mean, is that if you want me to interact, you'll have to make sure that I am brought to the attention of whatever you want me to see.  Or, you can always reach me through other means.  Pain in the ass... yes... whatever.  Some of you have my cell #, some have my email, but most can access me through hangouts.

Either way, this type of random posting will probably be what you get from me.  Again, it's nothing personal.  I do miss some of the interactions that I had in the past.... I'm just not the social media butterfly that I once was.

All is well... and things like this are what actually do make me miss social media.  But life has just gotten too busy at times for me to be the online person I was before.  Between work and maintaining relationships with people that are physically around me, it becomes harder and harder to maintain the online friendships.  It's so easy to miss so much in peoples lives when it's just online interactions.  With that said though, some will be hard to completely neglect.  There are certain things that are a nice distraction on here that will keep me poking in and out ( ahem +holger held )  haha... and I do know that certain people are within dinner distance should I travel again for work.  Just need my life to slow down a bit... but what a roller coaster ride right now.  ^_^

2016 is upon us....

Here's to hoping that this year brings you all you wish of it, and that the troubles of last year stay there.  Yes, it is only a date, but that date is what we make of it - so make it awesome!

I'm not dead... Just taking a step back from most social media.  That's not to say I don't pop in and check on people every once in a while, it's just that I have had a lot of things closer to home that has needed my attention.  Nothing major, just the fact of how life gets in the way, and you don't know if you're living to work, or working to live.  Life, though, has been OK for me in general; with both it's ups and downs.  Also, some of you know I'm a bit more introverted than I come across, so there's also that...

As a side note, and my main reason for the post is this - a simple message.  I have read a few things recently that have concerned me.  I will not state names, or make any indication to if this is directed to one or more people, as I hope this message makes its point.  (Ignore copy and paste grammar - not mine)

"take a step back. fucking look at yourself. you are human. you are beautiful. you are so beautiful. and you can be anything. you can be everything. do not hate because someone broke your heart, or because your parents split up, your best friend betrayed you, your father hit you, the kid down the street called you fat, ugly, stupid, worthless. do not concern yourself with things you cannot control. cry when you need to, and let go when it's time. don't hang onto painful memories just because you're afraid to forget. let go of things that are in the past. forget things that aren't worth remembering. stop taking things for granted. live for something. live for yourself. fall in love. fall out of love. fall in love. fall out of love. do this this over and over until you know what it is to love someone. question things. tell people how you really feel. sleep under the stars. create. imagine. inspire. share something wonderful. make something beautiful and then destroy it. meet new people. make someone's day. follow your dreams. live your life to its full potential. just live. let go of all those horrible things in your life and just fucking live. and one day, when you're old, you'll look back with no regrets."

Also, my dog Lager smiling, Warhol style, just because.

This monarch caterpillar decided to begin its transformation on my wedding day.  Today it emerged a gorgeous new butterfly.

I much prefer having a small circle of deep friends (as my small circles demonstrate) than a large following of surface friends.

By the way, who the fuck wears pajamas anymore?  Get naked people!!!!

Please read...  This is a friends brewery that they are in the middle of constructing.  Sometimes we have to take into account that there is more to the story than we perceive. 
So, the Bagby Beer Company was vandalized over the weekend.  We came in to the brewery on Monday morning to this:

Oh my. +Mike Wilkinson , thank you. The brave move by the brewery owners/construction group touches me. I shed a tear just now, a real one, and one of joy. We are in this journey together, with some we love, some we don't, but we are in it together. I am so happy they took the time to learn more.

Those are garden gloves. Poorly proportioned garden gloves.

Introduction
What?  You mean being boring isn't something to be proud of?

OK, so there really isn't much to say about me.  I am a relatively simple guy.  I have an attraction for most things vintage - sometimes, the older the better.  In saying that, don't take my electronics away from me!

I like to think that I am just an all-around nice guy.  I try to respect everyone, but in the process, someone is bound to get offended.  I call myself a "Humanist" - others call me passive-aggressive (whatever).

I don't put my life on blast, but if there is something you want to know, just ask!

My Favorite Sushi place in Riverside. Most of their rolls are your basic stuff, but well done. They do have an assortment of "fancy" rolls, that are quite awesome too. The Sashimi plate is reasonably priced, if you want to avoid rice. Cabin Hand Roll! Everything Roll! Ninja!
