Exploring ‘Concept’

The surface impression of it can be on the surface of water, maybe it’s in the pitch dark abyss of the sea floor. Maybe the conception is conceived of a family living within volcanic walls? How’s that for a stretch of the imagination – to live inside a volcano? Notions such as these are indeed…

Working with Abstractions

The idea or term that an abstraction points to can be lost if we get in our own way. The composition or art that refers to an idea or concept, abstractionism, is a literal image created out of the idea that we can’t see with our own two eyes. Is it still considered crazy to…

Network

The roads, your friends, a calendar of events, the device you’re reading this on… The idea of a network transcends our understanding of it, yet it took us so many years to know it as it is today. Networking can be so fun and yet so daunting – the extremes are typically based in our…

The Gauntlet

In the realm of Parkour there stands a challenge that can scale to anyone’s practice and anyone’s level of fitness in physical activity, called a gauntlet. While they can be used as deep conditioning exercises, guidance I received from Adam McClellan suggests that we can scale it to our own level of conditioning for an…

Imagination

An imagined nation, all within the confines of your own capacity to think with your mind. According to Einstein, it’s a preview of life’s coming attractions.

If everyone is powerful and it’s been known beyond the seeds of doubt of our lifetime, why wouldn’t everyone just believe in themselves? Considering it’s also the…

Creation.

If this goes viral again, you’ll regret not seeing it sooner. If it doesn’t, you’ll become aware of something that’s ignored by the masses. Maybe it’s not ignored, maybe it isn’t something others are innately aware of – I’d bet against that. How would you like to be part of a network of doers who…

What Is

Being the third person singular present of ‘be’, it’s the be state that someone else can observe in the present on a singular subject. ‘They are so awesome’, ‘she is so great’… ‘That idea is very interesting’, ‘He just is’, ‘This is the greatest discovery’. If it is, does the subject have to be anything…

When you choose to exercise a muscle, you may decide whether you’d like to train for strength, endurance, flexibility, the surrounding tendons, size and a large number of other potential pathways.
