Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.

It has been seven days since we left Chicago

I am having the damndest time tinkering with the fixings of that damn web site.

My other half doesn't want to be videoed and hasn't taken many pictures.

I am really wishing that I never announced that we were attempting to blog this process.

If you are feeling squirrely, folks *like me, with my ocd* will read. The importand thing is for you and your lady to get that thing together.

Life is meant to be lived in a state more resembling bliss than it is not. Most living things go about their lives without consideration for what is what, other than living. Man has the higher reasoning capabilities, so we find dumb crap that keep us from our happiness.

Don't find 'dumb crap'. If you can blog, blog. If you have to write stuff in a diary, if you think you may want to write a book about your experience, do that. However you need to record y'all experience do it.

But don't feel that because you can't blog or whatever that it is a problem or a sign. Do what you know and make what you know work.

Reading that post is funny - even though it's your life so the shit really shouldn't be funny.

It just made me think about that family vacation that you (not you-you, but the proverbial you) planned out forever and it was gon' be so fun; and then you finally get the car all packed up and pull out, and 'bout a hour into the trip everybody realizes at once that the 20+ hour drive is a looooooooong ass way and everybody starts fighting and shit and then the family vacation don't look so good no more.......

like that.

But on the real, like Big Mark said, you gotta do you, and not worry about your readers. Y'all gotta get y'all lives together, and whatever you can/do/feel like sharing with us, do so. But don't judge the success of your journey on the amount of documentation you share.

Yeah, I'm really self-absorbed.
