Excerpt From My Book- Intelligence

The following is an excerpt from my book, called "Intelligence". I hope to have it done within the next year or two.

"...With this apocalypse, some world problems had been solved, though not intentionally. Over populating and overcrowding no longer occurred. The plight of the poor and the glorious downfalls of the rich were but a thing of the past; now a fairy tale of some place that seemed to have never existed.

Not all was bleak though; where there is death, there is life, and life flourished after the downfall of man. Trees grew where many had previously been slain by human hands. Survival of the fittest reigned as king once again. The “post-apocalypse” world was not a grey and dismal place; instead it was teeming with life and beauty.

Mother Nature had happily begun to take back most of which Men had stolen from her. Civilizations lay in ruins with plants creeping acre by acre along the earth. The world was once again heading towards being a blue and green planet, spotted with the grey of its former life. The peak of civilization was now laid out like a skeleton, with blooming flowers crawling on its remains. It was the closest thing to a grave the dead would ever get.

But this is not about the beauty and continuation of nature; this is about the saddest creature ever brought into existence. Humans are those creatures, as they are both cursed and blessed with deep emotions and intelligent minds. They are the most irrationally violent of creatures, but are also capable of the greatest compassion..."

Dabbler Artist- With Pictures!!!

All of you know that I write. It's not something you would be surprised about. But let me tell you something only a few certain people know: I like to dabble in different art forms. As well as reading, I love art. My favorite medium is acrylics, but  I have done other forms of art as well. I'm currently working on scrap art, taking different things from Starbucks and putting them together to make a different picture.

One of my earlier paintings:

Two of my recent works:

I also like to cross stitch.


And counted:

Now I've stumbled onto crayon art. Most everyone seems to be doing a rain related theme, if not just a simple rainbow theme, or both.

I think this will be my next project. Except it will have something to do with Game of Thrones. I'm thinking coat of arms.

I'm Straight, and I Love the Gays

First let me say this: exercise and eating healthy makes you feel great. You get more energy, feel more fulfilled, love your body, and organic tastes amazing!!! While I will never be a veggie, (Why? Because I really love the taste of meat. That's my choice!) I am committed to eating veggies with every meal! I've never hated them, I just didn't eat much of them with every meal growing up. Now that I have started to, I'm looking great and feeling better!! Also, I figured out I'm lactose intolerance and now I don't eat anything with dairy in it. It's hard, ( I really love cheese!) but when I eat dairy I get really bloated. One it's not comfortable, and two, everyone thinks I'm pregnant all the time. When it's not true, it's offensive. Since quitting dairy 3 weeks ago, I've lost a few pounds and am almost back to my normal non-pregnant looking size! I miss cheddar cheese, but DAMN this feels more awesome.

Anyways, last Sunday I went with a gay friend of mine and my best friend to a gay pride parade and rally that started out at Stonewall Inn (Where the gay rights movement began!) to a nearby park. You can see me in this video walking past at Stonewall Inn. I'm the blonde with the blue shirt that walks through the middle. Also at this point for marriage equality, I'm in the middle with blonde hair and gray scarf. You can watch a news clip on the rally and what the supreme court is doing. You can also watch a small amount of what was spoken here.

That's enough for links. Let's get to the real story. I have many gay friends, close and distant, and I support every one of their rights. I'm straight, and I think everyone should be allowed equal rights. EVERYONE. If this was 50 years ago, I'd be fighting with the interracial marriage situation the same way the gays are having to fight. I'm in an interracial relationship. I have been for almost 5 years. If someone told me I couldn't marry my boyfriend, because we had different skin, I would be appalled. Who I am with is no one's business but my own. That is the same way I look at the gay rights movement, which is now focusing on marriage.

Last week two cases were heard in the Supreme Court on gay rights. We won't know until June what the verdict will be, but lets hope for a progressive, forward thinking verdict. Here's an article from the Times about it. Make of it what you will. Humans deserve human civil rights.

I seem to be an activist. I'm fighting for things I believe in. Marijuana and gay rights are only the beginning to reforming our nation and the world. We are changing, evolving. Shouldn't the US government evolve with its people?
