On Canvas
The ultimate canvas is the human form - the ultimate tools, the human mind.  We each are granted but a single canvas to paint upon, to produce a masterpiece or to produce garbage.  Some are granted superior canvas, or superior tools, with which to produce either masterpiece or garbage.  But each has the opportunity to paint as they will.  To sculpt what they will.  A laugh line here - a hard muscular line there.  Softness in the right place.
Or in the wrong.
Not all must appreciate the same aesthetic qualities.  It is up to each of us to decide what to do with what we are granted, what qualities to pursue.
But it is an act of greatest negligence never to paint upon that canvas at all, or to splash paint upon it and call it art.  An act of greatest deceit to copy another's picture upon it, or to trace another's lines, or to unroll another's painting and paste it over the canvas, to hide what is truly there.

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 24, 2010, 8:43 AM
A large part of my experiences involving the 'real world', i.e. Roommates, second jobs, recreations & the balancing act has been nothing but a subtly-destructive traumatic experience that's forever shaping my contempt for the aforementioned 'reality.'

Chiefly, the horrors are to be dubbed as bills.  Mostly service bills.  The... necessities, if you will.  Out in Denver, we have Excel and I while I cringe everytime there's a newspaper expose on them, I cannot help but acknowledge the precarious position I am in when they're demanding $100-$150 a month from my salary.  I need heat & light, they have a monopoly on supply.

Or Comcast--the only cable provider in all of Denver and they too, have a monopoly on internet access.

The list goes on and on...

My point is simple and it's a rather eloquent thought that has been inculcated within my skull.

Does anybody else feel fucked by the time they surrender their credit card number in the face of such demands?

I'm rushing off to work, so I have to postpone appreciation -- but the two peaks I got to take showed me something beautiful.

Until later, a watch will have to do.
