Is this moment so horrible that you need to escape it?

I'm not asking this question because I feel sorry for myself. This isn't a blog about self loathing or loneliness. It's about taking a long hard look at what we've become, as society. The delusion of connectedness that is actually disconnecting us. A couple weeks ago I left my house and forgot my phone. I… Continue reading Is this moment so horrible that you need to escape it?

What you do isn’t who you are

Signs of Hope #6: I AM – The Film

I just watched what is now probably one of my favourite films. I AM, a documentary written, directed and starring Tom Shadyac (Ace Ventura, Nutty Professor, and many more) takes us on a journey into who we, as human beings, truly are VS what we've become. It is a reminder that no deed is too small and… Continue reading Signs of Hope #6: I AM – The Film
