“From The Mind Of Critic: 2016”
This is the second of many collections “From the Mind Of Critic.” The short essays can be flipped through randomly, or read in succession. They run the gamut of human emotions from love, to hate, to fear. Along with a healthy dose of politics, humanism, unity, accountability and truth, this collection will hopefully stir the pot just enough to start conversations. For if we simply talk to each other like human beings, we’d find that many of our generational issues can be solved. Emotions soften when fog lifts, making us realize we agree on a lot more than we disagree. We just need to get out of our own way, and remember, everything we need to know we learned in kindergarten.
Excerpts from, “From The Mind Of Critic: 2016”
“If honesty is the best policy, then making it through the bad times, will help us believe we’ve earned the good times.”
“It isn’t about speeding or slowing through life, it’s about enjoying our journey and uplifting our soul, specifically so we can uplift others.”
“The light at the end of the tunnel and the tunnel itself, are metaphors we use when we’re challenged. Once we realize the light and the tunnel only exist in our minds, we’ll see that we can achieve our goals anytime, because we can access our light anytime.”
“If we accept responsibility for our actions, we become accountable to ourselves. Once we become accountable, we gain control of our own lives. Once we have control, we won’t need blind faith or absolution, because we’ll have dealt with our own crap ourselves. Won’t that save the world?”
