Clarity

As anoth­er year approach­es, peo­ple over the World wel­comes the new start; a “reset” that appar­ent­ly is present in our lives much like a video game. At the stroke of mid­night Jan­u­ary 1st, all the the things we have done in the past year, flash­back. These things cov­er acts of which we try to jus­ti­fy as “doing things right”, but not nec­es­sar­i­ly “doing the right thing.” Those moments range from: what we ate; exclu­sive places we are at; pride for the home team and dis­gust for our rival’s; vent­ing out peo­ple we don’t like or irked us; or debat­ing pol­i­tics (’nuff said); etc. But one com­mon thing rings through, it isn’t about where we were; what exquis­ite meal we have con­sumed; what col­or-label we are get­ting wast­ed on; etc.—its who we are shar­ing those moments with.

So as the clock ticks to one of the most sought after events of the year, I wish you clar­i­ty. Clar­i­ty in choos­ing to do the right things; to grow stronger & wis­er; to flour­ish with truth in your heart; and to share this con­ta­gious pos­i­tive ener­gy with those that you hold dear close, as well as will meet through­out this jour­ney.

NOH8 Campaign

Inspired by Robert Indi­ana’s LOVE sculp­ture, I orig­i­nal­ly designed it as dona­tion-fundrais­er for the “No On 8” cam­paign. Due to its flu­id Design mean­ing and impli­ca­tions, it can be uni­ver­sal­ly used to express your intol­er­ance to any form of “Hate” (H8).

If you are inter­est­ed in pur­chas­ing t-shirts, bags, hats, but­tons, etc. with the NOH8 Design, I have set up a store­front with the NOH8 prod­uct line over at:

Par­tial pro­ceeds from this prod­uct line will be donat­ed towards the cam­paign against Propo­si­tion 8.1

In the mean­time, spread the word… http://justamemo.com/noh8

Update: There seems to be a NOH8 Cam­paign (a pho­to­graph­ic silent protest). More info here.

Some take­aways from Olbermann’s Spe­cial Com­ment on California’s Prop. 8:

  • What is it to you?”
  • They want what you want.”
  • Spread hap­pi­ness.”
  • Do onto oth­ers as you would have them do onto you1.”
