Resurfacing onto the shores of this digital ocean soon. I cannot believe it’s been a four year PAUSE on ‘the’ facebook. I am sure whatever is happening on that parallel reality is merely a cracked distorted skinny mirror reflection of our current post recessionista-fashionista-artista-meta society. However due to concerns of lovely socially connected coworkers and friends, I must rejoin that dimension soon. I guess to prove that I am not some cyber ghost but in fact a living breathing heart pumping human.
I don’t know why I left in the first place. It wasn’t to exclude myself from the pack or draw attention. No, that’s not true. I do KNOW why. However after the first year it was like, really facebook what? I love my alone time. Nature abhors a vacuum. I love creating space. I don’t check in at coffee shops. I don’t update.
Oh and I am sure so much has happened as far as the ‘world’ is concerned, right. I mean if you can stay in touch with people without logging on, that speaks volumes about the people you care about and who you share your self with. I kid you not, I had no idea there were so many break-ups, marriages, second marriages, kids, and deaths had it not came in through the grapejuice vine. To be honest, at times I felt well, isn’t that what creating your own universe slash bubble is? I mean aren’t we all somewhat self-involved. Why do we clock in so many hours? Why do we reconnect with people we never knew. What is that? I want to create a new reality. Meet new energy. I want to spin new webs. Subtract snob and elitist from that thought. People change. People grow. Dreams evolve.
Blah blah blog. Long time ago when I was more naive and less grounded I started a search. Which somehow landed me at Jungian psychoanalyst’s office on a Saturday morning, and she asked, so is there an archetype you connect with? Is there a symbol, an image a pattern that you are unknowingly living. Through some deep breathing exercises I said, I connect with the Mermaid. Oh, that was all I needed to say, the rest is where I am now. Resurfacing. I have spent some time breathing in and contemplating all while keeping the surface stuff going and moving forward. I need to add, the Mermaid archetype is not the same as costume-y, lord of the rings, merlin, unicorny stuff. (check out Carolynn Myss, Jospeh Campbell, and Carl Jung)
I plan on sharing some pieces of my writing here in the near future. In the meantime I was feeling a bit nostalgic and wanted to chime in here.
Some things I have learned along the way:
1. Dark Nights of the Soul- they happen. Sometimes a few times in small bursts. Sometimes quakes. Sometimes like a fire that burn everything away.
2. Every person you meet on your path is there with reason. In fact the most challenging relationships are there to teach you something about yourself. So TRUE.
3. The heart is a mirror.
4. Relationships are mirrors.
5. You cannot see your own eyes. (referring to Attar’s Looking for my Own Face)
6. Life is cyclical. Everything is a part of system. (sounds like a coldplay song)
7. If you are going to give birth to something new plan to go through the labor pains. Bigger the baby, the longer the gestation period.
8. I love waves. Electromagnetic. sound. water.
9. I don’t mind staying in my own lane but I do make stop for stranded motorists.
What about you all? Archetypes? Positive creative inspiration? life lessons?
Good Evening fellow Tumblrs,
I am no stranger to curating content. I wanted to tell you all about my other tumblrs. Although I adopted a no need to explain motto earlier this year, I will go on to explain that apart from my day-to-day pitching, writing, and raising awareness and capital, I tumble quite frequently.
Mostly for my own need to archive content for research and trend purposes and because of the shared content value. I try to upload information I come across my data base of industry blogs and websites. I also reblog content regularly.
So, if you are so kind and keen on:
Earth, the living planet, animals, nature, sustainability, nutrition, neuroscience, space, healthy eating, humanity please visit: DIGITAL OCEAN
If you are a creative, ambitious Angeleno, love coffee, into TV programming, Film, documentary film, Hollywood, please visit and follow: COFFEETVFILM
I use DIGITAL BIN as my catch-all tumblr and mini blog posts. Hopefully in a few more months my permanent website will be live and I will be ready to share parts of my project. (excited to finally reveal what is up!)
Thanks again for the follows and mentions friends and fellow tumblrs,
