Robot Influenced Rants
So I rant. It happens. Discourse is welcome, but not if you're going to be close minded. I can't promise I'll respond to comments right away, but I'll get around to it eventually.

All of the photos and images posted here are mine (unless noted otherwise). Credit me AND let me know if you use any of them, but don't claim any of it as yours because stealing is bad. Really bad. Contrarily, all songs are the intellectual property of the respective creators and copywrite owners, not mine. Enjoy.

It’s odd. The day before, sun shining, clouds passing by and a slight breeze - I was miserable; but not the day we went to hike Mount Colvin and Blake. It was grey going up the mountain, and as we hiked into the clouds I only grew more excited to go on; to see what view would be afforded to us as the fog grew more dense on the trail. 

On the peak, I stood there for a moment, just savoring the movement of the clouds as they wound around me. It was quiet. I found myself watching the clouds as they passed, trying to follow their movement through the air as they danced through the wind. It’s the closest to clarity and peace I’ve ever been. 

To have the wind at my back, to be surrounded by the cool mist as white little puffs of ghosts whisper past; that is why I will go back.

Finally finished this piece. Pen and graphite on onion paper, mounted on gesso board. 8x11 I think?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”
An anonymous quote, apparently misattributed to Marcus Aurelius. It’s not the first time I’ve read it, not the last I will publish it here.
