What are Memories?

OK ridiculous question, I know, but I can get so easily caught up in memories that they are a HUGE part of my life.  Looking at old pictures, reading old rhymes, or just talking about things you forgot with old friends… memories rock.  

But I just watched a show called Brain Games… and you know what?  We actually manipulate our memories and create our own version of “what really happened.”  OK, so let’s say this statement is true (and scientifically they did actually prove this on the show) then what do memories really mean!?!?  If we only part reality and part remember what we want, or what someone has told us to remember, or cover up whatever we want to forget…. then what is a memory worth?

The Toltecs say we are all living in our own dream.  There is the dream we each create, and then there is reality.  My goal is to try and remain in reality, but our brains aren’t wired that way.  We are constantly gathering information, filtering it, creating the story of our life.

So, if I haven’t confused you, moral of the story is… THIS moment is more important than any memory.  Because THIS RIGHT HERE is reality.  It may only be your version, but it is the reality of YOUR life.  Live in the moment.  Thank the past.  Hope for the future.

I had an idea to give mini care packages to the homelesd I see on Bird and US 1 every day.  I finally did it made of left over snacks, hotel soaps, and messages of love.  Excited to hand them out.

Bringin that Big Bass!

I am going through the production I picked for my mixtape project and this shit BANGS!  I dont care what anyone says about my favorite music pool, but with some patience and a good ear you CAN find good production on SoundCloud.com for the fraction of the price (or even free).  I am all about collaborating with people, not working for people, so SoundCloud is a worldwide network of collaborators.  And the talent isn’t swallowed up by labels.

I found one young kid from Bolivia who is absolutely blowing my mind with his bass driven tracks, touching on dubstep, jungle and DnB.  Another in Serbia who’s doing some sick hard hiphop tracks, and a dude in Utah who’s making some smooth soulful beats.  I AM GOING H.A.M. and I’m doing it MY WAY!

Everyone has an opinion on HOW I should do this music thang, but all I really care about is that people WANT me to do it.  I got a vision, the encouragement from other is SO much appreciated and needed to continue, but I’m going to make this from the gut.  If I don’t ever make it to “FAME” then at least I did ME and I can’t be mad at that.
