Soul recharged

Man, today was like hitting the reset button on my soul.

I went to a Gnostic Eucharist (first time in years).

I had some great coffee at an awesome little mom and pop joint.

Wandered around in a cool neighborhood, and checked out a local farmers market, where I had some awesome BBQ ribs and Korean seaweed. The smells of all of the fresh produce and flowers there were incredible.

I walked a labyrinth (kind of a walking meditation), and then went to my secret sanctuary (also hadn’t been there in years) where there’s a little fountain in a quiet little place surrounded by trees and shade, and I literally just sat there in the silence by myself for about an hour - not thinking.

I drove around a little with the A/C on and listened to the “Into the Wild” soundtrack. (Cheesy? Maybe, but it was just for me, and it was perfect. Fuck it all.)

I had some more great coffee at a different place across town.

There’s no way to explain how much I needed this.

I’m always on the go trying to get sh*t done. I’m constantly goal-oriented and trying to be efficient.

Not today.

I feel like a new man.

I think I found my new Sunday ritual.image

I’ve got to say it about this whole gun mess…

I’ve got to say it…

These same guns were around when I was a kid.

The mass/school shootings were not… neither were the psychotropic drugs.

It makes complete sense that guns should require training and criminal/mental health background checks. I’m all for it, but there is a much deeper spiritual and emotional sickness and emptiness in our society that I think needs to be looked at as difficult and as disturbing as it may be.

Something is deeply wrong and broken here, and it goes far beyond the availability of guns alone.

If we really do care about this violence, and not just express our disgust and contempt for fat, bearded NRA guys who like to legally tote AR-15’s into a Denny’s or a 7/11 (They disgust me too, but ironically, they really usually aren’t the real problem), we need to have the balls to look inside ourselves and really begin to address this.

First of all, it would be the return of the Sonics and not the Seattle Clippers, but this graphic was made to bring some points home…

* The Clippers don’t want to play for their d-bag, racist owner, while Seattle’s Hansen/Ballmer ownership group has very deep pockets, and is one of the most attractive ownership groups for the NBA.

* The Clippers are the less popular of two NBA teams in one city, sharing one arena, and sharing one market, while there are already plans in place for the most modern and environmentally sustainable arena in the country ready and waiting in Seattle, along with a now untapped top ten market.

* Seattle loves (loved) their Sonics and loves their sports, as a recent 700,000+ turnout for their Super Bowl championship victory parade has recently shown. Their NBA team was literally stolen in a deceitful business deal after 41 years of being a part of the soul of that nice city, and there’s a cool, young, non-racist owner ready to totally get behind a new team.


Bring the Clippers up the the great northwest and #bringbackoursonics!

Welcome to my new Blog

Hey, guys!

This is the first entry for my new blog.

I still have a Tumblr just for fun, but this will be the blog that I will probably use more often to keep you all updated about news and events and things going on with me as well as occasionally writing about things that I’m personally interested in.

I’m going to start it off with kind of a weird introduction to myself for those who don’t know me yet.

Someone asked me in a conversation once if I could list 20 things off of the top of my head that I think are awesome.

It could be anything at all.

I didn’t want to take too much time to think about it judge it, so this is what I came up with without censoring anything.

20 Things that I think are awesome.
(In no particular order)

* Abandoned places
* Lightning 
* Old books/Used book stores
* Laughing until crying
* The Cosmos
* WWII fighter planes
* The silent hush of new snow at night
* The Olympics
* The female form
* Forests
* Old leather
* Being around old piers/old boats/the smell of the ocean
* Courage
* Craft beers and ales 
* Ancient ruins
* Long drives alone in the desert without ever seeing another car
* Mastery of anything
* UFOs
* No sound but warm wind whipping in your ears
* Individuality

Stay in touch and check back later guys!

Thanks for stopping by!

I was at the gym a little earlier (I’m finally starting to get my ass back in there a little again) tonight, and a guy walked up to me and said:

Guy - “I just wanted to tell you that you’re a really handsome man.”

Me - “Thanks, man! Thanks a lot. I’m not gay, but that was really cool of you. I’m flattered as hell.”

Guy - “Okay. My name’s ______. What’s your name?”

Me - “Cam.”

We shook hands.

Me - “Good to meet ya’, man.”

We both nodded and went about our business.

Unfortunately for me, I don’t hear this that often from man or woman, but I was happy to take the compliment, and all was well.

I had the thought that a lot of guys would have acted weird or even hostile toward a similar situation.

To those guys I say, you have some serious soul searching to do, dude.

I just found out that my alma mater (Art Center College of Design) has been using my short in a mandatory undergrad film class every term for over a year now.

That’s a big honor for me, and that makes my day.
