also the pride of man is a many-splendoured thing – thus it is never my place to cast close judgement, but only to essentially learn about myself through relationships, through listening and reflecting, working with feedback, and by continuing to be the realistic optimist that i’ve chosen to be, by attempting through action and choice – to continually take notice and to allow space for what i understand to be ‘the right things’ to happen. systemic awareness, mindfulness, consciousness, oneness, what have you, all echo of the same. in my own imperfection and misanthropic moments i will forget sometimes, and be seen to fail at this ideal for many reasons (not the least of which being ‘it-takes-cash-to-care’) because like all words to the masses also these will slip beyond my control and intent.
