on the kobe bryant death: i am a female and i feel it’s STILL SAD when anyone dies in a plane crash no matter who they are and if they have done abusive/rape things or not. i actually think it’s gross that some humans think a person accused and or guilty of rape does not deserve “rip”. it is sad when someone dies in a tragic accident even if they do harm to others in their past. kobe bryant was a human being, an athlete, a father, a husband AND someone who did abusive things- i know hardly anything about him but i still think it’s sad that he and several others died in the helicopter crash including his 13 year old daughter. etc. sad to me the way humans “dehumanize” others who make bad choices and do harm- and act as if the whole person is just whatever bad things they have done and forget about all the good things this person probably did. #kobebryant #rip #condolances

good morning! waking up thinking: i want to focus on being a content creator and resist being a passive viewer. the whole “surveillance capitalism” is freaking me out and i want more time away from the internet and mass media and more time in nature with plants and animals and my own inner world etc. so much marketing an advertising everywhere. even “news” is selling you something. ideas are sold: not just “products and services”. do what you Love, don’t get sucked into the drama!

i love Laurie Anderson! have since i was a teen and heard her 1984 album “Mister Heartbreak” at my uncles house! agree with her ideas on not “labeling” yourself as a certain kind of artist if you don’t want to be pigeon holed! be free if you want. “multi media” keeps you free! i have always felt natural this way. some aRtists are happy to FOCUS on one medium. not me! follow your bliss as Joseph Campbell said “If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”
