I keep thinking I will...

I keep coming here to start posting again but the clean up from the old is just so daunting. So many old links that are no good. Maybe I should start over?

Change Needed

I would like to freshen up this place and give my blog a new face but my problem continues to be time. I don't want to start messing with things that I can't finish. I have it on my list though. I want my blog to focus more on creative projects.

My winter break has so far been jammed packed playing catch up with all the things I can't get to during semester. This time of year it's doing the end of year bookkeeping for the business and taxes. I imagined myself engaged in all kinds of creative endeavors but no such luck so far. Before you know it I will be pack in class. (Ugh) Not looking forward to it. The good news is I am really down to my last 2 semesters. Unfortunately I will be doing a course overload and even though I tell myself I can do it, I have my doubts. Studio classes are very time consuming and all the enthusiasm in the world won't create more time.

No worries. We are all going to die anyway.

I still have a few things to say. Here is an excellent article. (Little excerpt below.) I advise reading the entire piece.) I feel strongly about the link between lifestyle and our health. We really have to slow down, wake up and be conscious of what is going on.

"Doctors will continue to fail with cancer until they buck the training and accept that a patient is not some collection of malfunctioning cells but a human out of homeostasis. We have cultures alive today who don’t get cancer. No stress, no speed cameras, no mobile phones, no Iraq War. Don’t get me wrong, I truly believe 21st civilisation has much to commend it but there are the downsides. As Berglas says, we’re a toxic society and that includes the medicines. If cancer is striking 1 in 3 of us, that means something is going fundamentally wrong and we’re either going to be honest about it or continue canoeing down that long river in Egypt called De-Nial, splurfing down the rat-burgers until the meat-wagon comes to collect us."

"In other words, your body is an amazing piece of kit. During my decades of public research, the overwhelming impression I got was how little the citizen was being taught about what they could do for themselves. Thus they were forced to rely on the ’experts’. Thankfully this is changing. Jamie Oliver and Gillian McKeith are but two of the personalities these days hosting programs in an effort to change our behaviour. Government, so quick to sticky-beak into every nook and cranny of our lives, seems not to be bothered. ‘Healthcare’ costs rocket as doctors continue their ignorance of diet and lifestyle. Cancer remains the corporate preserve of vested interests, these days spearheading legislation in some countries that would make an SS Sturmbahnfuhrer blush. Parents arrested at gunpoint for refusing chemo for their children. Kiddies whisked away to be forcefully medicated to preserve their ‘human rights’. Mums on the run to avoid toxic AIDS drugs for their children. Refusing vaccinations for little Annabelle in Maryland USA can these days bring a SWAT team to your door.

Get your sketch on!

I love this project because of the limitlessness of it and the encouraging and inviting nature of it.
