A photo of a vintage car.

This is a photo of a vintage car that I took while on one of my work adventures, back in the day. I was employed at an aerial photography aviation company and I would make it a habit to walk around and check out the sights of everything around me. I’m not sure what kind of car this is, but I remember that it was very common to see old cars meticulously maintained still driving around on the streets.

I hope you enjoy this little piece of history that I was able to capture through my lens.

Have a great day!

Flowers from my fathers garden.

Recently, my father has been able to start walking again. He was unable to for a period of time, and had great difficulties moving around. The prayers at the shrine seem to be paying off, and he is able to to walk again. He is using this time off walking to be able to do what he loves best, which is taking care of his garden.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my fathers garden.

Constant Updates to the Website

Here is yet another update to the website discussing the updates, and my future plans for the website despite the fact that there doesn’t seem to be much progress being made. Perhaps the point of talking about the updates to the website is the point, with an endless juxtaposition being made towards the constant promises towards better tomorrows, but in reality the website hangs in between this flux of hovering between being set up for better tomorrows, versus the constant background thoughts of just shutting it down, and giving it up.

In reality, this website takes a lot of time and effort to run and maintain and there’s no immediate benefits that I discern from the efforts that I put into it. I’m not sure if anybody even reads it, and there’s no promise that the information that I do put on here isn’t going to be held against me in some future, predisposed time. Indeed, the fact is that the internet, which was once a mechanism for free speech and enduring ideas, has become a very hostile, dystopian landscape where you cannot even determine if the people you interact with are real individuals or bots, with just pre-scripted talking points ready to shout you down if you stray from the corporate pre-determined talking points, which honestly is very hard to track as it seems like the scripts constantly shift and reality has just lost the narrative.

The danger that I feel like I’m running into is that I’m just flat out getting outdated with outdated ideals and mannerisms that don’t seem to mesh well with the hyper-partisan and continuously radicalization of the internet to push narratives that don’t seem to have any definitive conclusion or realistic destination. It’s just a constant march towards chaos with no real anchor point, or solid foundation of known truths to which people can base their decisions and handle the impetus of change regarding. In truth, we do not know where this is going or even how I fit into it, or even if I want to fit into it. What’s the reward, and the end game?

I guess the whole point is that were all in it together trying to figure it out, together.
