I have been fortunate to earn a Doctorate in Philosophical Observational Sarcasm so you can call me DR. PUNK! Okay, maybe not entirely true. But it’s true that I do like Philosophy, Observation and Sarcasm (but only in a nice way).
Seeking a higher principled life inspires me to move beyond mediocrity and apathy. I believe character and virtue still matter. But I suppose that inspirations or beliefs without sincere action are by definition forms of mediocrity and apathy. I suppose that’s the irony of life and state of suspension we often find ourselves. As they say – that perplexing Existential Dilemma.
How do we and why should we strive toward a principled life. After all, it’s hard! Well that leads me to a related question.
Is there a chasm between Good and Evil (choices), between genius and insanity (enlightenment or inherent psychosis), or, merely a shift in one’s perspective (consciousness)?pan) With character and virtue factored in, the chasm between Good and Evil is clear and therefore our choices are clear. The Gospel can and will get us there.
Okay, I hope that will spark some conversation a little deeper than I like to sit outdoors [after all, even Wang Lung’s daughter, “his poor little fool” liked to sit outdoors – problem was – she didn’t know when to come in out of the nightly cold ] – (hmmmm –n) a bit of hyperbole but do you know the reference?)
Now I will complete the Dr. Punk mosaic by discussing my other salient points and give you a few of my REAL TRUE LIFE experiences (please excuse the brevity of diction):
DATING: I'm a Cereal Dater. What's the big freaking deal. Not to brag, but last week I dated Frosted Mini Wheats (a bit to Short); Lucky Charms (luv Irish Girls); Rice Krispies (she took me to a great Sushi Bar); Cocoa Puffs (from Brazil had great rhythm); Fruit Loops (really - a NOW protest rally); Kashi (a tree-hugger from Seattle); Trix (yes, I met her in Vegas); Honey Nut Cheerios (sweet but too much emotional baggage); Honey Smaks (paddles and whips were her thing); Count Chocula (okay, I got caught up in the Twilight craze).
TRAVEL: Travel, I don't travel, but I have some how ended up at various places all over various Planets. For example, once I traveled to blah blah blah – then this triple humped-back camel appeared blah blah blah, so I guess Camels are not permitted inside the Pyramids blah blah blah US Embassy blah blah Passport surrendered blah blah blah – blacklisted - “d’oh!”
FASHION: blah blah – I hear shreeking - So I guess it was not a Unisex changing room blah blah - Ok, seriously, Prefer a girl in a t-shirt, jeans and running shoes to Haute Couture and Manolo Blahniks, but a balance is always key.
FOODIE: I'm a Foodie but mostly I’m an Eatie blah blah blah amazing Flaming Kobe Beef Truffles and Saffron blah blah blah Grease Fiiiirre blah blah baalaah EVACUATE blah blah blah no fire insurance policy blah blah blah.
PETS/FURRY BEASTS: I have several lil furry monsters. My home is "Where the Wild Things Are". Nightly there is ritual of "Wild Rumpus". I don’t want to sound paranoid but I think they may be planning a coup d'etat! One is reading Animal Farm and they now refer to each other as Komrad. One Siamese Cat repeats the incantation “we are all equal but Cats are a bit more equal than the others.” What’s that about? My Orange Doggie doesn’t like this one ;")bit.
Hoping to spark some interesting views and some hyperbole :-)
I hope to hear from you Cheers!
