After being away…

It seems that San Jose hipsters are really into brands.

They are the brand-brand of hipster.

Things that happen…

Sometimes you just gotta do it. Carry on. Life happens… It lays the course, and sometimes you just gotta navigate your way through. Some things we may never fully get over. Allowing those things to dictate the way you live is the only mistake you can make.

In my soon-to-be 26 years of life, I’ve come to learn that you can’t expect anything from anyone. Support from our friends, family and those we let in only take us so far. We have to do the rest.

The beauty of strength is only found through weakness. We may not always lay the path, but that step forward is always within our control.

“ We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive. ”

—    Thich Nhat Hanh (via fourteendrawings)

The 20th century, three hundred years from now, is not going to be remembered for its wars or its technological innovations, but rather as the era in which we stood by, and either actively endorsed or passively accepted the massive destruction of both biological diversity and cultural diversity on the planet.

The problem isn’t change. All cultures throughout time have constantly engaged in a dance with new possibilities of life. And the problem is not technology itself. The Sioux Indians did not stop being Sioux when they gave up the bow and arrow any more than Americans stopped being American when they gave up the horse and buggy. It’s not change or technology that threatens the integrity of the ethnosphere…

It is power; The crude face of domination. And whenever you look around the world, you discover that these are not cultures destined to fade away. These are dynamic, living peoples being driven out of existence by a identifiable forces that are beyond their capacity to adapt to.
