JB's guide to surviving the hard times ahead (IMPORTANT)
Another major "terrorist" attack, probably wiping out an entire city. Martial law. Collapse of the global economy. World War III. Nuclear holocaust, an unprecedented series of "natural" disasters, epidemics. Brutal, violent anarchy and wanton devastation on a planetary scale. And that's just the beginning.
The future (the next 4 to 5 years anyway) aren't going to be fun. So how do we get through it?
Sure, canned food, bottled water, toilet paper, duct tape and cigarettes are a good start. Maybe an AK-47 as well.
But I'm talking about spiritual integrity here. You know, what keeps you HUMAN and gives you HOPE?
For me, its two things, two memories; one of the past, one of the (possible) future.
When I kissed Manon's hand. I was walking her home from work (as usual), we had a long, intimate conversation about our personal lives at her doorstep that lasted over an hour (also as usual), and then there was a comfortable (or uncomfortable?) silence. You know, when two people look each other in the eyes, wanting deep down inside to get closer, but knowing full well that they shouldn't (she was ridiculously faithful to her f***ing soldier boyfriend who was practically never there).
So I asked if I could kiss her hand, like a gentleman would a lady. She laughed and she agreed, it was a very tender and intoxicating moment that lasted way too long, and it was amazing how both of our hearts were beating faster from such a simple gesture. No matter how badly our "relationship" ended, that was a moment that shall last forever (for me anyway).
Then there is Chris Crocker (picture above). Can you imagine how incredibly f***ing powerful what I feel for him must be so that I am willing to become gay for a guy I've never even met (and may never even meet (in this "reality" anyway))?
Forget about the "Leave Britney Alone!" stuff, he doesn't even like that insane bitch anymore. Check out some of his other youtube or myspace videos, he's a real person with a great sense of humor and great depth. I want to make him happy, period. And simply imagining us being together makes me happy as well.
Heart-warming memories and everlasting dreams of what one day could be. THAT is what we all need in order to survive the time of all-consuming revelations about to be unleashed upon us.
