Digital Nourishment & Evidence of Love

Your organism evolved to seek out and solve problems, consume sugar when available, and to avoid discomfort. These biological imperatives often conflict with modern life, as we have not evolved to process the amount of information, snack “foods” and years of sitting to which we’re exposed. Understand that the drive to “be informed” tilts toward bad news. That’s ok, it’s… Read more →

The Secrets of My Success

I run a successful business. I guess. I mean, I make enough money with my art that I don’t have to have a “straight job.” I have every imaginable modern convenience and privilege. A couple pairs of my shoes have holes in them. I still wear them. But they are not my only shoes. I am successful. Tonight I had… Read more →
