Unsettled Science of Vaccines and Their Potential Link to Autism – Do We Know the Truth?

I Am Not Anti-Vaccine.
I do not believe vaccines cause autism

I do believe more research is required before we dismiss them into the darkness.

I am a reasonable guy – asking questions.
I am also the Father of a handsome little man that received an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis in 2008 – at age 2 and a half. He’s now 11.

If you’re pro-vaccine and believe science has proven their safety – please read on – I come to you from a place of love and have humanity’s best interest at heart.

Re:discovered – The Puzzle is Elementary

I stand silently in my make-shift office. I kick off my old, beige slippers  and place both hands on top of my head as I release a long, whisper-like, sigh.

As I stand there – I scan my office. I see dozens of books that I either started and didn’t finish – or should have started. I see clothes draped over a guitar amplifier. I see my gaming headphones resting on top of my sketchbooks.

Politics and party hats

I thought I’d start the day by jumping in on the political opinion-party. I see all of you sporting those smooth party hats as you post your thoughts on Facebook — while you may or may not know, I am a party hat collector and self-assigned critic.

So…

I cannot sit in silence any longer – give me one of those sweet party hats.

Code Sain. The Writing Journal Journey

wpid-screenshot_2015-09-05-16-44-12-1-1-1.pngCompassion. Dedication. Sacrifice. Intent.

Once upon a time on a dark and stormy night – I ponder, for hours, on how I can start a post about these 4 key elements.
Then it dawns on me — “Look in your private journal!”
I jump up and run to my desk. I sit down in my chair, scan the desk, and it occurs to me that I don’t even have a private journal.

That instant reaction to check something that I didn’t own at the time was a clear indication — It was time for a change.

A Social Media Compilation and Some News.

wpid-20150912_150316.jpgHello, my friends!
I have a few pieces in work – expect to see the first by Tuesday evening or Wednesday afternoon.
The adventure has, unfortunately, delayed work on the blog. I don’t want to try to explain (and most likely bore you) with the details.
Rest assured, though, the posts will show up more often as we move forward. Regular blog postings are essential.
I haven’t told anyone about the plans I have. Yay for secrets! Don’t worry – the secret will be out soon – and you’re going to love it.

Be Still and Listen – You Already Have the Answers.

thinking-304955-mLife is short. We hear this sentiment often, don’t we? What does it really mean, though? When people say this, I believe they are referring to living a fearless type of lifestyle. Not wreck-less, but fearless. Purely intentional – stretching yourself and testing your own beliefs on limitations placed into your mind by a structured system.
This is what I believe is often lost in translation – Embrace the unknown.
When you stretch yourself, more specifically your mind – you put yourself in a state of feeling mentally uncomfortable or spiritually unsure. This feeling of discomfort is necessary.

Nature is the Answer. Always Has Been – Always Will Be.

Jack Herer, also known as ‘The Hemperor,’ offered a $100,000 challenge to the world to prove him wrong.

The Challenge: $100,000

If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the greenhouse effect and stop deforestation; Then there is only one known annually renewable resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world’s paper and textiles; meet all of the world’s transportation, industrial, and home energy needs – while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil, and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time…And that substance is – the same one that did it all before – Cannabis Hemp – Marijuana.

Sponsored by: H.E.M.P. (America), HANF HAUS (Germany), SENSI SEEDS/HASH MARIJUANA MUSEUM (Holland), and T.H.C., THE TEXAS HEMP CAMPAIGN (America) Visit Jack Herer’s website for more details:

If you can prove him wrong, you will be $100,000 richer. (Jack Herer – June 18, 1939 – April 15, 2010) Rest in peace, Sir. Your work and dedication will forever be admired by millions.

The reason Jack put such a large sum of money up in this challenge is because it’s impossible to prove him wrong – because he’s right. Each of the examples he gives in this challenge can be broken down into many subsections.

You Are a Genius – So Am I and So Are We – They Are Too.

wallhaven-181481-1080x1920

What is 1+2? What is the value of 1? What is the value of 2? If we take the value of 1 and add it to the value of 2, what is the outcome? Given what we have learned throughout our lives, the value we get is 3. Now, my question is this – Do you accept that?

Is there any part of your mind that has a desire to question it or are you 100% sold on 1+2=3? If you do have, even a slight hesitation to accept it, then you’re on the right track.

The path to personal enlightenment may seem elusive – but it’s not.

There are many avenues that consistently move us closer. Maybe an extra 10 minutes of gazing at the clouds while being consumed with awe and amazement, secretly sending positive vibes and love to a stranger, or by staying silent and listening to your thoughts. It’s constant progress but the most important thing is that awareness and personal growth remain routine.
There are many pathways to choose. On this path – we discover fragments of our true nature. Something that ignites a fire in your gut and gets hotter as you put your attention on it. This is when you know you are on to something.

It All Started With Some Excursions Into Horror

20150312_135320-1It was Tuesday night and all through the house, not a creäture was stirring – not even my muse.

After a long, restless night I decided to put the words down for a few days and read. I was, once again, reminded of the genius of Stephen King. What an inspiration he is. I hope to one day meet him just so I can shake his hand and say “Thank you.”

Speaking of the King – his word usage and storytelling initially sparked the fire and got me writing. I believe it was 1994 when a copy of The Night Shift – excursions into horror, entered my life. I wish I could remember how I obtained it but, I don’t. I spent many nights alone in my bedroom reading those short stories and becoming captivated by them. The art form, the characters, and the words took hold of my imagination. That book started a love affair that has lasted 21 years and counting.

That night, after reading a few stories, I put the book down and began thinking about 1994. I was 15 years old at the time. I had no idea who
