Everything is Natural | 8-12-15

Everything is natural. Every single thing. From the grass in Kansas to the smog over Beijing.

Humanity occurred naturally. There was no creation. There is always and only becoming.

Saying that humanity is outside of nature is nothing less than an attempt to dodge blame. We say there is man and his environment, and the environment is broken, never realize that it’s man that needs fixing. We are the cracked gear, the leaking fuel pump that’s killing the machine.

The anthrosphere is the biosphere. May we in flesh become one with our energy source, our respiratory foundation, our mother Earth.

Flick. I just told myself that was my last cigarette. It’s probably not the last time I’ll tell myself that. Life’s been a bit of a drag lately, but hopefully I can turn this ship around. I’m gonna go for a long time dream and start a freelance writing career. It’ll take a lot of concentration on my part, but I’m confident that I can put out a quality product. I’m taking to the habit of writing at least 1000 words a day, which I read somewhere was where Hemingway sometimes lingered at, so it should be enough. How does Stephen King write seven pages a day? They can’t be 8″ x 11.5″ in a twelve-point font. That or I’m slow.

I’m trying to go for it, but what about those who aren’t. I think this millennial generation has some real issues with finding direction. Even the kids with college degrees are struggling to find work. It’s a tough job market, at least as I’ve experienced it. I worry a lot for myself, even though I have a pretty solid resume. I am stunted by the fact I didn’t get my degree, a B.S. in Chemistry, but I’ll be taking out (even fucking more) student loans to finish it up in the next year or two.

So I’m working on a novel and two short stories right now. I’ve started logging my words and hours daily, to observe patterns. Hopefully I can get a finished product out there, My goal is to have the novel finished before the end of November. I call it an “environmental dystopia”.

Peace
