IF YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, AND THE SUM OF YOUR WHOLE- WHO ARE YOU?


A COLLAGE OF MY DAD FROM BABY TO MAN =
THE SUM OF HIS PARTS? WHO HE WAS? IS? BECAME?
CAN HE BE CAPTURED IN MEDIUM AS WE KNOW IT TODAY?


GETTIN BACK TO A PREVIOUS POST, IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT?

OHHHHH HOO  REALLLL HEEEEE! (ACE VENTURA IMPRESSION).


IT HAS ALSO BEEN SAID THAT WE ARE ALSO MADE UP OF WHAT WORDS, PICTURES, TOUGHTS THAT WE HAVE, HOW WE PERCEIVE OURSELVES, ALONG WITH OUR DNA, AND HUNDREDS OF OTHER CRITERIA. HOW MUCH OF WHO WE ARE, OR WHO WE BECOME, IS CHOICE, CHANCE OR CONTROLLED CHAOS?



WE'VE HEARD, GARBAGE IN, GARBAGE OUT: AS FAR AS WHAT WE FEED OUR MINDS AND SPIRITS!


WOULD THAT BE:

WHAT ARE WE WATCHING ON TV, READING IN PRIVATE, THINKING ABOUT OTHERS, USING TO MAKE MORAL DECISIONS,  BEING INFLUENCED NEGATIVELY INUNDATED WITH NEWS STORIES THAT ARE NO LONGER STORIES FOR US TO DECIDE ON, DUMBING AND NUMBING US DOWN. NO LONGER NEWS BUT POINTS OF VIEW SHOVED DOWN OUR THROATS?

ARE WE BEING PROGRAMED-BIG BROTHER? DO WE STILL HAVE FREE WILL, AND IF WE DO, DO WE EXCERCISE THAT FREE WILL? DO WE BELIEVE ALL WE READ AND SEE, OR CONFIRM IT FOR OURSELVES, AND THEN BELIEVE IT.

HAVE WE BECOME SO COMPLACENT AND APATHETIC THAT AS LONG AS WE HAVE DIRCT TV, BLOGS, FOOD AND A DOOOR TO LOCK- THAT WE INSULATE AND ISOLATE OURSELVES, AND DON'T EVEN KNOW OUR NEIGHBORS?

I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING A CUTE NEIGHBOR STOREY!
I'M READING SOME POWERFUL WRITING , PROFOUND SELF EXPRESSION ON NUMEROUS BLOGS. GREAT CHUNKS OF INDEPENDENT & CREATIVE THOUGHT.  FROM AGES 15 TO 70!

QUESTION:

IF WE ARE WHAT WE EAT, BECOME WHO WE ARE BY SOCIO-ECONOMIC, SPIRITUAL , MORAL CHOICES, AND INPUT THAT WE RECEIVE,

MIX YOURSELF UP, POUR IN BOWL, WHISK BRISKLY FOR 5 MINUTES.

ADD WATER- (WE ALL NEED WATER)!

POUR CONTENTS OF SELF INTO DEEP BAKING DISH AND PLACE IN OVEN AT 450 DEGREES FOR 30 MINUTES.

YOU COME OUT AND ARE PLACED ON A PLATE AS A MEAL:

1. WHAT ARE YOU CALLED?

2.ARE YOU NUTRITIOUS?

3. WOULD KIDS LIKE YOU?

4. DO YOU PROVIDE ANY NUTRITION VALUE AT ALL?

5. COULD YOU BE A FROZEN FOOD, AND IF SO WHAT?

6. WOULD YOU BE CONSIDERD A MAIN DISH, DESSERT OR A SNACK?

7. WOULD YOU BE CONSIDERED A BALANCED MEAL?

8. OR JUST JUNK FOOD?

9. GARBAGE DISPOSAL OR COMPOST HEAP FOR RECYCLING?

10. CONSIDERING ANY OR ALL OF THE ABOVE--WHAT INGREDIENTS WOULD YOU NEED TO ADD  IF ANY,TO BE HAPPY WITH THE WAY YOU TURNED OUT? AND WHERE WOULD YOU GO TO GET THEM?


JUST THINK ABOUT THE PROCESS OF WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE ARE, WHERE WE ARE GOING, AND HOW MUCH DO WE CONTRIBUTE TO THE NUTRITIONAL PROCESS OF LIFE?

TO SUM IT UP: DESCRIBE YOURSELF ON THE FOOD CHAIN OF LIFE!


SORRY WALKING MAN!I SHOULD HAVE WARNED YA!
