Dinosaurs are an invention by scientists to create revenue and a ploy to perpetuate scientists’ careers. They created the whole idea, manufactured fake bones, buried them in choice locations that agreed on the ploy for a share of the profits, then tipped off their friends on the potential “day of discovery.”
Even Carbon dating has been disproved by individuals who buried hard boiled chicken eggs then had a scientist come out and test them, with the scientist not k owing these were ordinary eggs front two weeks ago, and the scientist dated them at a million years! If you believe in Dinosaurs then you probably believe humans have walked on the moon!

Life can often come down to perspective making all the difference. How w
e see things, how we see others, can be the deciding factor between success or failure, friendship or enmity, a lost opportunity or a friend for life.
This period in my life has been crazy busy. I am moving fast in my new job, recording albums, talking with agents and publishers, performing live, writing books, running festivals and working with book cover artists. Through this growth period I have been experimenting with altering perspectives and it is changing my life!
We as humans thrive on contact. We are made inside another human. We kiss and hug before we can even walk or speak. We are warm blooded creatures and write songs, books and movies about love between humans. And yet our society discourages contact. Our society wants us to have virtual friends, connect via media instead of through touch and so many of our children now are being born Autistic. These poor souls shun as much contact as possible. What a shame.
For those who prefer texting over a phone call to hear another human’s voice, who prefer video games over physical sports or interacting with humans in person, for those who prefer as little contact as possible with other humans, they have sadly become anything but human. We are made for contact with other humans and need to do so, for our physical, mental and emotional well being. Otherwise, we become aliens on our own planet.

I recently visited the Smithsonian Air Museum and was inspired by Space Shuttle Discovery that was there. It had been into orbit and returned to earth, surviving the burn of re-entry and the death defying feat of orbit back to earth to be used again.
Often I find myself in this life to be out in orbit, burnt on re-entry and yet surviving the return to earth. No matter what obstacles or trials, tribulations or challenges, I somehow find a way to survive, carry on and rise again to new heights.
Most people don’t want to be the sidekick. Most people want to be the hero. Everyone wants attention. But when most people are in a situation where they are not the hero and someone else is, they often react to the person who was the hero with resentment, jealousy, disdain and even retaliation. This is all wrong. When someone else is the hero we need to be gracious, show them encouragement, congratulate them, praise them and be happy for them. Just be patient. You’ll get plenty of more chances to be the hero and you’ll get more attention.
We all need to show more grace these days. Let someone go ahead of you in line. Hold the door for someone. Let someone who is waiting turn in front of you. If you do, you’ll see others follow your example and you will pay it forward, making society and the world a better place. Remember we are all human, we are all mortal, we all only get one life and it’s short. Make the most of it for others as well as yourself. Albert Einstein said, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.”

Every great city has a history. Every great city has experienced change, growth, advancement, tragedy, rebuilding, success, failure and taken on its own personality. Some great cities are transformed and grow so fast they split into multiple cities. Some great cities experience massive influx of residents and some experience massive exodus.
But no matter how great the city, how technologically advanced, how great its sports teams are, how fast its growth or the size of its productivity and profit, all great cities still retain the one most important thing of all: Every great city has its own soul.
Why is it these days when someone does something wrong and you call them out on it, they don’t admit it and apologize, but instead they retaliate by doing something else wrong? When did our society become so backwards? Why can’t people look themselves in the mirror and truly admit their faults as well as their strengths? Why can’t they accept they have weaknesses and work to improve and overcome them?
All we need is some quiet reflection, alone, away from Smart phones, net flicks, internet, wifi and outside influence. It is only then that we can contemplate who we really are and what we need to do to strive to improve to make ourselves better people, to better society. If we can be honest with ourselves, we can never be honest with others and our whole society will become one, endless farse. Don’t let that happen.
What an amazing discovery! That Pluto is suddenly not big enough to be a planet. Or is this just another scam perpetuated by scientists, like dinosaurs, to create more revenue for their clique? Think about how much media coverage, advertisement dollars, thesis papers, articles and books have been generated on this subject and how much money has been made.
Why can’t scientists just accept their position and not keep inventing fantasy and trying to make it reality? If they can’t honestly earn a living, they should choose another occupation. There are enough wonders in the cosmos and new discoveries in medicine and nature that the scientists don’t need to fabricate things just to make a buck.
Getting out and spending time in nature with no internet, wifi, computer access or coverage bars or signal on my smart phone is critical for me. In order to maintain my physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health, I need to spend time out in nature, away from technology. There is no better place to do this than high up in the mountains, out in the woods, surround by rushing rivers, quiet and purity.
This is what I am doing this weekend, an escape from crowding. I am at high elevation in a pine forest, surrounded by serenity, open sky, clear air, wild animals, no traffic or computers or offices and plenty of peace and quiet. I am far from the daily commute and hustle of the daily grind. This is my paradise and as long as I can come here frequently, I can maintain my personal balance and remain healthy and inspired.
