Taste The Rainbow

Freedom

Flesh to ashes

Dust to wind

‘Til death do I part

You win

Swaying in the storm

Dirt devil in the sand

Leaves in the pool

Begging homeless man

Sun burns my eyes

Feet charred from the grind

Heart still beating

Test of the mind

Heart wired strong

Faith and despair

No more persecution

Only wind in my hair

Freedom at last

It’s the last freedom

Taste the rainbow

Have rhyme

Have reason

Major Beauty and Fashion Magazine Changes The Game

carls_jr_modelBeing bombarded with fluffed up advertisements every day can become exhausting. If you turn on your TV or radio, get on the Internet or step outside of your home, you are susceptible to absorbing what ever ad is being sold to you. You probably think it’s just ‘white noise’ at this point in your life, but you still do absorb the information! If you’re a victim of the 1-2-3-punch with an ad being gouged into your brain, then you’re more than likely going to buy whatever that ad is selling you! ‘Why the heck do I want that Pretzel Bunned Cheeseburger at Wendy’s?! Must go buyyy.’

For both men and women, we are surrounded with a facade of perfect looking people in magazines who don’t have smile lines or don’t have weight issues! Then some of us look in the mirror and think, ‘Why does my face bend!? I must get rid of that bend!’ Some of those unhealthy advertisements create unhealthy habits and lifestyles amongst those who can’t help but believe that those doctored up photos are real. Don’t worry if you are that person, because we have all been victims of believing that smoke and mirrors do have an entrance to the world of perfection!

My Mom has one of those cool magazine subscriptions where she gets a boatload of female beauty/fashion and lifestyle mags every week. She lets me have them, and I gladly take them because hey- I do like some of the interviews and information in them. In all the years that I have seen these types of magazines, they all have had a similar look to them. It’s a famous person or model on the cover, and the words on the front are teasers to what’s inside. » Read more

When You Care, It Can Hurt

cornfieldBack in the early 90’s before Avon, IN was deemed the next ‘Carmel’ (lol more about that soon), Avon was a very quiet place where you could open your windows at night without being awoken by obnoxious noises. You could hear the occasional distant squeak from the train or its horn, but nothing disturbing like now…

I grew up in the heart Avon, where my parents still reside today. Their backyard consisted of a big grassy yard, and then just past that was a huge cornfield. Down the street where my best friend Kris lived, was a quaint creek where the neighborhood kids enjoyed gathering every Summer. Eventually we grew up and so did Avon. I along most Avonites would agree that it’s a far cry from the new Carmel but it still has its own charm some would say. » Read more
