“You do ill if you praise, but worse if you censure, what you do not understand.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Da Vinci is one of my favorite  philosophers and artists. I just found this quote the other day and I’m so on it and he’s right to censure shit and not try and under it is an injustice to the intellectual.

But I don’t think we do ill if we praise because some people deserve recognition for things they do and if they don’t get it enough from people they feel count the most in their lives where’s that extra sense of worth that comes from “praise” from a loved one going to come from?

To praise someone for making a wrong or bone headed decision in the larger scope of things is sort of a call of judgment on the individual giving praise. You can cause harm for appeasing a weak willed person with praise for a menial task, but on the other hand, it could boost them up as well… But to what extent can we let a retard feel they deserve “praise?” Maybe da Vinci has a point…

Let’s just say:

“Anything in any way beautiful derives its beauty from itself and asks nothing beyond itself. Praise is no part of it, for nothing is made worse or better by praise.” – Marcus Aurelius

Word to AURELIUS!

Supernova

Supernova_Companion_StarSo… too many songs throw me back to times when I felt good about spending time or just being around  someone, but this one sort of doesn’t (Mr. Hudson ft. Kanye West “Supernova”) and it comes at a time when I’m just chillin’ (thank goodness)… So it makes it something that kinda makes me feel good in the now. 🙂

Songs like Lykki Li & Drake “Little Bit” (remix), James Blunt “Beautiful,” Outkast “Morris Brown” and anything Ryan Leslie makes me feel like an asshole when I hear them now. So they’re out of rotation till I can look at them as just music and not blips in my memory of people who more than likely have or may fade away sooner than later.

It’s weird how music can spark emotion and make us not only think, but feel. My Muse describes me as being “TOO EMO” sometimes and I told her I’m just “PASSIONATE” about things that matter to me. My family, my friends, my work, my music, MY LIFE… And honestly, I don’t think she has a right to even go there with me with the amount of EMO she’s spilled on me in the past few months., but that’s another story…

And I’m well aware that passion is an emotion and if that’s considered me being emo to you than I’m guilty as sin.

I look at it like this I’ll be daamed if I let someone suck the passion out of me and force me to choose a path for myself when I know I’m capable of doing me on my own… It took me 27 years to realize it and when my back was against the wall I took it upon myself to get my act together and get what I call my DESTINY in order and that’s what will make all this “emotion” aka “passion” worth it.

SO…. be prepared for a SUPERNOVA of MONUMENTOUS proportions because I think we got something going on that’s kinda like a big deal.

“And I feel like taken off
Let me be your supernova
Before you make the biggest mistake of your life
Just give me the chance to get it right, get it right

Oh they got it all
You could see they got it all
They got the cars the boat and the beautiful house by the shore
And you know there’s more
But I can’t take another minute of it all
He wants the kids and the dog
He wants his breakfast in bed
He’s got his trust fund saved
Not a worry in his head
He’s not you or me
I wanna break up the scene and see ya running back to me”

Kanye West “Supernova”
