Bringing Forth Growth

there appears to be a correlation between growth and an increased responsibility load

and managing both is an expansionist’s service oath

also, decisive action and accountability when at fault one cannot afford to compromise on

because doing what others won’t typically makes you captain of the boat

but know that your character shall be tested and if not totally committed to the cause, you’ll come up short


35 ‘til I die

35

The last few years have been a wild ride. Laying down foundations, building, growing. Conquests and triumphs and a fair amount of challenges and tragedies. All part of the journey.

Through it all, I never stopped writing. Was simply working on other forms. Slightly different to the material you typically find on this blog.

If interested in that other side, you’re welcome to check out the work.

Stay safe,
love always

Time Sovereignty

Financial independence
That’s what I’m pursuing
Ownership of my time and control over the options
As far as how I choose to live out my dreams

So I’ll trade my time for bitcoin
Not cloths strips or aggry beads
Or anything based on an ersatz gold monetary standard
That’d only make me a slave to the system

Give me honest money
Not currencies backed only by armies
Digits on screens serving the purpose of counterfeit bills


Sketch for a Theory of Persistent Passions (vii)

Forget days off
If you want to get on and stay on

Because there’s a price to pay
For every bit you earn and coin you own

So only take time out
To sharpen your arsenal

And know there’s nothing comfortable
About journeying to the top

For those who do the most
Understand the cost…

And that time is the only loss
That affects earning potential


Everlasting Vision

Every new day
Is like every new year

One needs an open mindedness and steady head
A vision that is clear
And a plan of action to adhere to as well as a willingness to play fair

Every season gives us reason to adapt and change
So take on each new challenge with commitment and care

Let every regret fuel the momentum you hope to gain
Never forgetting lessons past mistakes ought to have forced you to learn
For nothing is made better by staying the same

Aim as high as you can
And if you fall short raise the bar even higher when you go at it again

Life is but a game in which we all get a chance to play
What differs is our approach… levels of participation… and results we wish to obtain


Eternal Impetus

Lord knows the young buck is no Jim Simons
So not quite the quant as such
Yet just as calculating in his approach

And he won’t stop
Even if he gets what he wants
The medallions, the funds
The freedom to express his creative arts


letting love lead

snoerkling with the seals
paddling with the penguins
diving with the dolphins
all the things we enjoy
yet in this moment
nothing brings more joy
or beats how it feels
to have you steer this tandem kayak
while I power it up
just like you direct the course
of our love


Memoirs of the Moribund

the coterie of statecraft collusionists
prescribed neoliberal economics
which involved a lot of palaver in administering
structural adjustment programs which would ultimately serve the rich
and cater to a class of conspicuous consumers

at the same time centrist movements felt the power shift
and since they couldn’t compete with established free enterprise capitalists
they became dependent on a system that would not protect them
and with that came an end to the development of their worker-centric ideas around financial independence


Nature’s Garden

A little older now
Quickly it seems the year’s moved along
Still I know not why, what, when, where or how
But each day I’m open to learning… keeping the mind as fresh as a new born’s

And as I reflect on challenges overcome and battles won
Never forgetting but instead expecting that there’ll be more to come

Will and determination abound with the drive to outperform
On a quest to conquer self – both ego and flesh form
In order to be better with age and truly experience growth
