SALtoshi Whitepaper #124
Seems like society might be finally ready to reset, you know — after two years of being afraid to death of COVID-19, and basically fighting an information civil war. I was in New York City when the pandemic began, and I’m here now, which means I’ve likely seen the worst of the worst when talking about societal chaos in America. Plenty of New Yorkers are still seemingly wearing masks around the clock and treating their vaccination status like some sort of badge of honor, but let’s ignore them for a moment, because I think we’re finally ready to move on.
Now what? The question must be asked and answered. If we’re not sucked into COVID drama, then we must find a new way to spend our time. For those who never stopped pursuing their creative outlets, today’s letter might seem like a preaching to the choir. For those who have no idea what to do with themselves, today’s letter is especially for you. Everybody needs at least one creative outlet. Some of mine are writing (duh), photography, and exercise. Basically, finding a healthy way to express our individualistic traits, and simply exploring life. Something is always waiting to be discovered, all we need to do is search.
Sometimes I leave my apartment, and have no idea where I’m going (Sunday), thus activating my inner creativity. Deciding to walk slowly (mostly because of the heat), eventually I found myself near this beautiful bush inside Fort Totten, and I couldn’t leave without a picture. After some failed selfies with the bush as background, my amateur photographic eye spotted the perfect angle. Being a lone wolf means I have to be my own photographer, as well as my own model, which is always a challenge I’m willing to accept. My iPhone wouldn’t stand by itself in this position, so I walked around the area until I found the perfect rock to lean my phone against, and the rest is history.
This might seem pointless or a waste of time, but it’s actually the opposite. Finding small windows of time each day or each week to exercise our creative juices is very beneficial for our overall mental, emotional, and spiritual health. I feel like the time is now to let go of all the drama we’ve been dealing with for the past two years. Most of us have already made up our minds about everything we’ve been fighting over, so we have no reason to continue revisiting certain topics. Time to let go, and move on with our lives.
Not only does everybody need a creative outlet, but everybody is good at something. All of us were born with specific creative gifts, and the only way to discover our gifts is to try new things. Important to understand — our creative pursuits do not need to cost money. Some people automatically jump on these opportunities to spend money, but being creative doesn’t always work this way. You have an inner artist, now go find yourself.
Until next time,
P.S. — According to Doctor Robert Malone, we generally have no reason to be concerned about Monkeypox.
