invent yourself and then reinvent yourself,
don’t swim in the same slough.
invent yourself and then reinvent yourself and
stay out of the clutches of mediocrity.

invent yourself and then reinvent yourself,
change your tone and shape so often that they can never categorize you.

reinvigorate yourself and
accept what is
but only on the terms that you have invented
and reinvented.

be self-taught.

and reinvent your life because you must;
it is your life and
its history
and the present
belong only to
you.

Father’s Day sales advertise tools, lawnmowers and grilling supplies, but if mother’s day sales advertised cooking and cleaning supplies, people would probably freak out

Tailwind forever


Ya know..
its not often this crusty old fool is at a complete undaunted loss for words..if you have been frequenting this dirty corner of the intronet you should know by now its not all negative hate filled crap..

the grammar is gawd awfull horrible...

but

I like to think of more often than not as a place to
express,
expand,
enjoy
laugh and vent a little bit of yours mine Lemmies and who ever else day to day grinds and anxiety...

all emotions..

Sadness and hurt doesn't get tossed around here very much though..
mainly cuz T likes to keep this shit positive for the most part...
but like everything in our life its part of deal..

the plan..
what we signed up for
but didnt have a choice...
I wont bore you with more flowerd up T babble...

The place I love and the place you and I make up have lost some great humans...
all individuals,
all people that have touched lives..in a certain..

i hate being that guy
that guy that says 

theres a reason..

but i believe there is a reason people come into our lives.
not to leave us and bring sadness
but to teach us..

how lucky we are...
lucky to have friends, family, role models..lucky to have been shown what its like to come together and unite..

as one..a wise man once said just because i dont agree with you doesn't mean i do not respect you...

grab some one..
one person,
text somebody...
call..
email..
like
friend..


one person..


time moves pretty quick and the human life is pretty fragile...


Mike..
Jeremy
Bryce..
familys...and all ive missed

Love and and Big warm hearts go out to you
you never know what tomorrow may bring

respect and passion

yours T
Alex Gray, 
Teahupoo.
