"People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all."Ayn Rand
"Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen."Leonardo Da Vinci
me (secondblooms) + disclosure, my ode to 2013 !!!
Try this alternative to a complex productivity system.
Several times each day pause and ask the question that poet Mary Oliver poses: ”Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
And, I would add— “And what is a simple, direct choice that will move you in that direction?”
Okay. Go do that.

Cheb i Sabbah - Alkher Illa Doffor (Bassnectar Remix 2013)
Cheb i Sabbah was a musical pioneer, fusing together entire cultures of sound and music, pushing cutting edge blends of traditional songs with beats and ideas which were way ahead of his time.
“Chebiji” as he was affectionately known passed away November 6, 2013 at the age of 66, and we are releasing this special remaster as a benefit to his family: he has two kids and three grandkids, who are largely dependent on him. All the proceeds from this remix will go straight to the family.
