Finding Gold

It is amazing how the digital world is affecting my physical world.

My inhibitions are unraveling.

In the digital world the only thing that holds you back is a key stroke.

This weekend I’ve been on cab rides in Cairo and to a festival in the forest.

All this excitement has changed my attitude toward the public in general.

I’m sharing more.

I know it sounds hippy…

I have to be careful about the hippy talk.

You know you could be shot for that in rural Texas.

Shhhh and don’t tell them I’m from Los Angeles either.

I heard you can be jailed just for visiting.

I’m ninth generation, I’m sure that’s the noose.

Yikes.

Nobody knows.

Although I do buy a lot of avocados and sprouts at the market and say dude pretty often.

When the folks around here ask me about it I just say I watch a lot of TV then immediately point out some random person and say “I haven’t seen them around here before.”

But I’m actually interested in people again.

Everybody has something to offer even if they don’t know it.

I just want to help them find their gold.

The digital world has inspired me to inspire others I see everyday.

I hope, with all my inhibitions unraveling, I don’t turn into an old nudist.

Digital Island

After reading Matt’s essay on 6 Steps to Killing Your Community I got excited.

I came to a realization.

Here I am on my digital island.

The cool thing about my island is that it’s not isolated.

There are digital flights available from all corners of the globe every second of every day going both ways.

I have a chance to build something great.

A place where ideas are fostered and creativity is encouraged.

On my digital island everyone is a champ and will be treated as such.

I declare all art forms are welcome.

Although modern dance kind of freaks me out.

But that’s okay.

I’m not afraid.

In the spirit of global dance, catch a digital flight and check this out. My oldest son turned me on to it.

Cheers.
