Pefectly Good

And now that you don’t have to be perfect,
You can be good.

Vipassana:  signs of mind and matter.  How the mind is influencing the body and later how the body is influencing the mind.

Here’s the jam of the day.

I was a couple moves away from being dead
In that ER overdosin’, eyes bleedin’ red
I fell in love, made an album, got a buzz
Lost it all, sobered up and guess what?
Now we meet again
And I’m back, finally just laughin’
–“Vipassana,” Macklemore

Well, sometimes I don’t have much time to blog. But there’s always enough time to dump a few pics for your viewing enjoyment. Photodump time!!! 

Yes, these are my photos. I took them using very advanced photography equipment, this limited edition camera called an “iPhone.” It’s state of the art and hasn’t been released to the general public yet. But I have a friend in the industry. Don’t tell anyone.

Suitland, MD * Lyrics by MACKLEMORE

Mormon Temple / Maryland I took this in my Jeep Wrangler while riding shotgun down I-95.


EXTREMELY RARE photo of SunRISE probably the 3rd or 4th sunrise I’ve ever seen I hate mornings.

“Go Ravens * Bitches Be Trippin'” No place like Maryland Scenes from I-95


A very ominous looking sky, right before the big “storm” that was supposed to transpire that I didn’t pay attention to all day when everyone else was having a cow

SCREENSHOT. Awesome quote huh?


I’ll always be a Washingtonian. Washington, DC / Spring 2013

I dunno. There’s something sensual about nature and power lines, no?

Again with the powerlines? Dusk Northern VA


Airplane. In the sky. Yeah, buddy

Stand like a Man, Move like a Legend

Jam of the Day

[Macklemore - verse 3]
(Can i get em?)
Stand like a man, move like a legend
Talk but with action, that’s how you’ll be remembered
The greats learned that humility is a weapon
Sever ties with the part of you too big to learn a lesson
Sit in silence, to fight the mind and try to find the present
Cuz we only get a couple chances to be epic
And I’m connected, like God plugged my headphones
Directly into heaven and told me to go and get em with this
Mic cord, I am, nothing you can tell me
They bark when they talk but they walk like the legless
The purpose of my art, is for people to respect me
I’m not a king I’m a servant to the desires that tempt me
Only way to escape the cage in a valley of roots
Be a mirror to the people when they’re searchin for truth
Only way to escape the cage in a valley of roots
Claim the mirror, my people, keep searchin for you

My sky *July 6, 2013 * http://instagram.com/marybken#


I don't sweat, I glisten
I didn't change, I evolved & u didn't
Move like a trajectory
packed; stacked memorex memories watch from the balcony
the stars in my galaxy
& I'm feeling so extraordinary
Shooting past the ordinaries

Didn’t even think he had a problem

Macklemore is straight up beautiful.

Special thanks to “P,” the dude that introduced me to this poet lyricist mastermind. P wasn’t a very nice man. We went on 2 marginal “dates,” if you can even call it that, since one out of two times involved me picking him up in DC at 3am because he drank too much to drive. That was awfully nice of me, huh?

And then, after that, P got all flighty like I was expecting too much from him. I’m not sure if it was the rapid-fire emails about my childhood that I manically sent him one day while bored at my desk, or if it was because I don’t give a shit about the San Antonio Spurs. Which one could it be?

P broadened my horizons by informing me of all the ways I was screwing up my life. For about a month, I seriously considered what he was telling me. In a nutshell: I have no discipline. It was depressing and a real mind-f*ck, and P wasn’t even my type.

A few weeks later, a FESTIVUS MIRACLE occurred, and I met a guy “J” who liked me just the way I am, and he’s good looking and perfect for me. THANK YOU GOD.
But I’m glad P told me how much my taste in music sucked and how I should check out Macklemore. He was right on the latter part.

Here Macklemore raps about drug abuse and creativity.  Heads up, writers.
