“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”—E.E. Cummings (via aplacecalledfreedom)
I listen to the howling wind, blowing outside my window. And I imagine the crashing of ocean waves on a shore not bound by four white walls. The crashing waves call to me. They say “come you who are weary and restless, let our steadiness lull you to sleep.”
Do you know who this is Chris Ho? By the way how's the bike treating you?
HAHA NO WAY! I had this weird feeling your photo icon and username felt familiar in somehow, but I just figure out how! It’s been great, I’ve finally finished it for the most part, just gotta switch out 2 parts and then I’m completely finished and satisfied. Hopefully it’ll see the velodrome this coming Wednesday night.
I almost didn’t stick around after my class to watch this movie, but either my curiosity got the better of me or the name of the documentary sounded intriguing, either way I ended up watching it and I’m glad I did. The film is called Who Killed the Electric Car? and it follows the story of the creation and destruction of the General Motors EV1. An all electric powered automobile that was essentially put on a trial run in LA. And despite the good reception and possible automobile revolution and positive revenue it could have started, it was put down almost instantly and under the table by none other than corporate goliaths, pro-petroleum lobbyists, and bias governmental officials amongst others.
It’s another prime example of wealthy wolves driven by greed, stunting the growth of progression because they’re too set on chasing the dollar signs in their eyes. I walked out of the film departments theater frustrated by the fact that so much greed constantly dictates our decisions, affecting us and others around us, guiding our motives, plus even keeping good people and positive change down. That just does not sit well with me. If you’re wondering why we don’t already have electric cars at auto-malls lots side by side with gas guzzling SUV’s and sedans this documentary will give you a pretty clear insight as to why not.
yup, i have outdoor education in my school. it's pretty neat-o. we went canoeing once. That was my favorite thing so far. :D You're not in high school anymore?
Nope, i don't play football, haha. But i do play in the marching band. i play bass drum. :-)
Also, i've been meaning to ask... do you have a fb or something?
That sounds so awesome and so much fun! I wish I had a class like that. Oh ok it sounded like you did, haha no way I used to play the trombone when I was in my HS marching band too. No I’m a 4th year at Cal State Univ. Northridge.
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”—Henry David Thoreau
I was so disappointed to discover that the only 2 camera batteries I brought with me to use in my camera were already dead long before I got to Catalina. I was so disappointed that I couldn’t capture the stars, the galaxies, the ocean, the sky. I will not be disappointed for my upcoming field trip to the wilderness the next 3 days and will better prepared.
