Best Words Blog Birthday

She’s back and this time the memes are loaded!

yadadarcyyada was a dark and stormy night. The kind of night that made you want to don a trench coat and fedora, while suspicion and anticipation vie for the lead in a dance as old as time itself.  I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Or a great party (Treat the cause, not the symptom).

I have misgivings. I didn’t know. I still don’tknow. Sometimes I don’t even know what I don’t know. For example, I didn’t know I needed the best words to be a ‘winner’, whatever that means.Having read countless books, reports, blogs, etc., listened to countless songs, watched countless TV programs and movies, I have to admit many, many others have amazing words. Is it any wonder I’ve been experiencing writing angst?

It’s been a stuffy, screeching, spooky, sweltering summer abundant with the bafflings of humanity and nature alike. So here I…

62 Seconds of Soul Murder in San Francisco

Homelsss people leave messages of anguish on the walls of alleys.
Homeless people write on the walls of the alleys in which they sleep.

The term Soul Murder describes the effects of child abuse.

I include the willful hurting of people who are gravely ill
and unable to care for themselves.

Soul Murder is always an abuse of power.

It’s all too easy to imagine that the Third Reich was a bizarre aberration, a kind of mass insanity instigated by a small group of deranged ideologues who conspired to seize political power and bend a nation to their will. Alternatively, it’s tempting to imagine that the Germans were (or are) a uniquely cruel and bloodthirsty people. But these diagnoses are dangerously wrong. What’s most disturbing about the Nazi phenomenon is not that the Nazis were madmen or monsters. It’s that they were ordinary human beings.  Less Than  Human, The Psychology of Cruelty

A patient recently discharged from a hospital to the Street.
I took a walk to my dentist last Thursday.

My dentist is on Powell and Sutter Street.

My Walk to the dentist along Market Street  takes about
thirty minutes.

Below is 62 seconds of that walk,.

5 chance encounters with people whose public suffering is palpable
and unnecessary.

I’ve arranged these short videos in order in which they were made.

62 seconds of random soul murders in one short walk in San Francisco.

Forty years of tax cuts and privatized medical greed.

We know what we have to do…

but we choose instead to dehumanize
and scapegoat the  victims.

I’m not a wealthy man.

I don’t travel by limo and plane.

When people have no where to
piss but the street

I have to smell it.

I’m not a wealthy man, I can’t
shit where I eat and jet to the
illusion of a cleaner place at
the table.

I first read this a last October. I’ve re-read it and like it so much I had to re-blog it!

lovers liars and losers

when life becomes too much to handle some shut themselves off to the world, some terminate certain aspects of their lives and some even set out on a new adventure leaving the old in the past, but me…i decided to start a blog to only add to this crazy thing called life.

hi. i’m jae. i’m 23 and have a job that i love while living in a fabulously tiny apartment.  only looking at life in regard to the next few hours as so much can happen oh so quickly…  i love everything about my life and have everything that i want in life except one thing….a guy.

many guys have come and gone…and throughout all of my experiences i have compiled quite the collection of interesting stories.  when rehashing my dates or online encounters, people always are doubled over laughing and normally end up saying, “you could write a…
