I had every intention of putting out more content this month, but distractions are plentiful, and I’m not going to sugar-coat it (stupid netflix; stupid xbox gold). Besides the things I have to take accountability for, there’s also been some that were less avoidable. It’s fall, it’s busy, everything all of a sudden needs done at once.

It all comes down to the same thing, though: I’m quite behind where I wanted to be. 

Namely, The Crow: Part One Podcast still isn’t done, and neither is Part Two. Both of which were supposed to be out by the middle of September.

So in the meantime, I’m here posting just to let you know I’m still working, they’re still coming. And I have been working on something else, too: the humanism project. It’s nowhere near complete, but just to help keep things moving, here’s an excerpt. 

I don’t remember the first time I heard the world humanism. I remember looking it up, because I knew what it meant already, and I thought it might be me. The first definition I found wasn’t the one in the dictionary, and I haven’t been able to find it since, so I don’t know where it came from. But it was this: Humanism is the belief that people are the world’s most valuable resource. Yes, I thought! That’s it. It’s not about all the other things we greed: those are just broken identities. Money doesn’t save or fulfill. Oil doesn’t do anything for your longterm happiness. And I tried the religion-thing: I tried it till I was so broken and empty I had nothing left to live for. No, it’s always been about people. People are what’s important, people in all their pain and joy and beautiful annihilation. People are the treasure that was lost.
