Life is change


So, I had an amazing conversation with a nice fella the night of the Temple burn. One of the biggest points he made, that stuck in my head, and I agree with is the use of the word participate as in No Spectators, participate. Participate is a somewhat passive activity. It assumes there is something to participate in. Some thing, someone else is doing that I can engage in. But to me that seems like it is not what the whole BM thingy is about. We both decided that the word Create is much better. Because we are creating everything out there. and hopefully, we take it back with us to create our own world. So this is just a memme that I put out there in front of all of you. I hope it spreads and takes hold. Let us create and do not wait for something to participate in.
