I am a big fan of art and creativity. I believe that being creative is a spiritually enriching process. When we get lost in our art, it is the best meditation possible. There is therapy in writing, regardless of what others think about your stuff. Write for yourself and love how it makes you feel.
Thought gives birth to form.

sean t: In the vastness of the universe even the speed of light is slow.

sean t: I am reminded often of my lack of knowledge. The more I think that I know something, the less open I am to new information. Here's to staying open-minded and free from the ignorance of knowledge. ;)

sean t: Isn't it a wonder, how you eat food without hunger? Take when you don't need, and build your life on greed? The disease that consumes you, is a beast in silken robes. Wicked in his magic, a cancer to his breed.

sean t: I used to be a hippy, until I met a bar of soap
I once was suicidal, then came across a rope
I used to use dope, now I just am one.

sean t: cogito ergo sum

sean t: I have felt deeper, heard clearer, tasted sweeter, in dreams than I ever have in "real" life.

sean t: Some say that time is the baseline, others posit that time is an illusion. I'm somewhere in between. I tend to look at time as a dimension, just like space is another dimension. Or, time and space are at least latent functions of the dimension we currently inhabit. But how many dimensions are there? I think that music can teach us how time can be manipulated. I actually believe that music is the universe, and string theory agrees. Knowing that most of this universe is dark matter leads me to think that the bulk of scientific knowledge still lies just beyond the veil. We've just begun to understand life and consciousness. Our science is still in its nascency. Which is absolutely thrilling in my opinion. Imagine the secrets left to be revealed. Just thinking about it gives me the chills and makes my spine tingle. I need to learn the math, I need to learn the song.

    princessbubblegum: Reciprocity and connectedness between mathematics and music is evident in vibrational patterns and sound waves. Matter is cosmic wave structure/ all matter has a frequency and pattern, however obscure. You may have read this quote by Gottfried Leibniz..."music is the pleasure the mind experiences from counting without awareness of the numbers" (I paraphrased, cannot remember the precise quote)
    September 27, 2013 at 7:06PM
    sean t: Absolutely! And that is a great quote.
    September 27, 2013 at 10:25PM
    sean t: are you familiar with the shrodringer's cat thought experiment? it is concerning those frequencies you mentioned and touches on quantum mechanics, one of my favorite subjects.

    DIS-illusioned: Ahh! Aren't those mirages just sweet? (They become real if you wish hard enough, you know)

    sean t: Indeed!

sean t: I'm not concerned with making people like me, and i'm not hurt when they don't. I'm interested in personal growth. don't want to waste any more time on negativity. there's too much in life to be grateful for and every day brings more opportunities to learn. i'm glad when I read something that really makes me think and gets my creative juices flowing, and if what I write does that for just one person then that would make me feel great. but writing is my therapy, everything I write is initially for my benefit but it's always nice when I find someone who can relate. this world still contains some really good people and it seems like most of them are artists. maybe we are able to be more empathetic towards others, for whatever reason. I know that my struggles with addiction and illness have made me more tolerant and understanding of people. but I have my moments of weakness, like all humans, when I can be impatient or insensitive. but at least I recognize it and try to improve, I can tell it's gonna be a lifelong process but i'm up for it. I must set the ego aside and just enjoy the ride.

sean t: I get a little upset when someone gives a bad review just because they don't understand a piece. If you don't have the vocabulary or the intellect to get it, just move on. Don't screw up my score because you're too slow to catch the meaning. When I read a terribly dull and lackluster poem with a fourth grade rhyming scheme, I choose to remain silent instead of giving them a well deserved star. It's the polite thing to do.
September 21, 2013 at 3:59AM
    vapros: Sean, there are reasons other than lack of vocabulary or intellect, for failure to understand.
    September 21, 2013 at 9:50AM
    Donya Quijote: Perhaps your focus on your score is the wrong approach.
    September 21, 2013 at 10:31AM
    Torrence Winter: Another pompous ass joins the ranks.
    September 21, 2013 at 11:14AM
    sean t: There definitely are vapros and I am guilty of not being a great writer so i'm sure that sometimes I write stuff that absolutely makes no sense to anyone but me.
    September 22, 2013 at 1:42AM
    sean t: You're right Donya, forgive the arrogant rant, it's rare for me to be so egotistical. you have reminded me that there are more important things than worrying about how many stars I get. such as simply enjoying myself and staying open-minded enough to learn something. I was just venting.

sean t: Anyone else out there have as much trouble as I do with writing good dialogue?
April 14, 2013 at 2:43PM
    redrider6612: Try reading it aloud. Go for a natural flow, use contractions. Try not to overuse proper names. Don't use expository dialog. And last, but not least, make sure the dialog advances the story. Readers don't want to read a lot of "Hi, Dan, how's it going?" "Not too bad, Jim, and you?" Bo-ring!
    April 14, 2013 at 3:01PM
    sean t: Good advice, thanks.
    April 14, 2013 at 3:30PM
    Sarkems: I mean this in all sincerity. Get on a bus or train and listen...That's how George Bernard Shaw wrote some of the dialogue in plays. He listened, not just to what people said, but how they say it. Even the most dull conversation can tell you things, like that people don't describe everything about an event that's happened, like they don't constantly use eachother's names, like sometimes they interrupt eachother.
    April 14, 2013 at 3:47PM
    nor84: Dialogue in fiction is not like speech in real life. There should be, as Red said, no "Hi, Dan" unless what follows is something that advances the story, like "Hi, Dan. Need your help, man. My wife just ran off with George." And then get Dan and Character together somewhere for a quick discussion of what Character wants to do and whether or not Dan agrees or has a different approach. That's called conflict, and that's what makes story. Dialog should never include chit-chat that leads up to the real point, as we'd do in life. Cut to the chase, so to speak. Emsey's right about interrupting one another and avoiding the overuse of names. Once the scene is set up and the reader knows who spoke first, they'll understand who replied without the characters constantly using names when they speak.
    April 14, 2013 at 5:01PM
    sean t: Very true emsey, thanks. Thank you nor84, it's all about advancing the plot.

sean t: Not everything you write will be well received by all. Creative writing, like all art forms, is a very personal and subjective experience. Just like beauty being in the eye of the beholder, so creative writing is appreciated according to the perceptions of the reader. If someone doesn't understand your work and gives a bad review, wish them well and pray that their minds open. Also, try to see what they see. Look with an objective eye at your creations. Strive to always improve. Most of all though, keep an open mind and enjoy the ride. Witness the evolution of your craft. Be honest with yourself.

    Debra White: Great perspective. Great advice. Thanks for sharing :) Debra

    sean t: Thank you, ladies

sean t: Faces change but the conversations stay the same. People talk in circles and personalities repeat themselves. You're one in ten buddy, one in ten ;)
April 13, 2013 at 12:09AM

sean t: Hello and blessings to all. I'm new to this site so I'm open to any suggestions and appreciate all sage advice. Happy thoughts and fluid writings.
