an exerpt from "The Mindscape of Alan Moore"

"Quitting my day job and starting my life as a writer certainly was a tremendous risk.
It was a fool's leap, a shot in the dark.
But anything of value in our lives- whether it be a career, a work of art, a relationship- will always start with such a leap. And in order to be able to make it, you have to put aside the fear of failing and the desire of succeeding. You have to do these things completely purely without fear, without desire.
Because things that we do without lust or result, are the purest actions that we shall ever undertake."

so today is the day!

Not only is today the start of a new month but it is also the birthday of my brand new baby blog!

(It ALSO happens to be World Vegan Day. Who says they don't believe in evolution???!!! Read more here)

It is a captivating world we live in. And lately i've been feeling the need to talk about all that's transpiring with anyone and everyone willing to listen and to share ideas of their own.

I believe that it is through the act of deliberate reflection and authentic communication that we come to know ourselves, and can create connections with others that are so profound we come to know them as ourselves...

Also, I have felt for a long while that i don't contribute enough to the world around me, or rather, i know i am capable of giving much more. And so I have created this venue for sharing with you all that i deem interesting for the mind, nourishing for the body and enlivening for the soul...

be well and thanks for reading,
