Invent Your Own Life

Standard

Whatever your resources, the world is yours to the exact degree to which you summon the fortitude and faith to step away from convention and orthodoxy and invent your own life.

I read that quote in a work of nonfiction called “Something Wild in the Blood” by Bob Shacochis. I changed the verb tense to read more smoothly when taken out of the larger piece of writing. I entirely agree with Mr. Shacochis’ sentiment.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I've never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again. I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist. Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it. I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk. This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
