A Moment of Independence

created on July 4, 2008 - Cambridge, MD

Independence comes in little moments for me these days.
A moment to pluck the worlds social issues out of my mind.
A moment to free my mind from the struggles of how to get by.
A moment the placement of a single flower pedal is my only goal.
A moment to find the the next splash of color needed for my piece.
A moment to be amazed at how my Higher Power provides it all.
A moment when the application and searching pays off.
A moment my soul smiles.
THAT moment I experience INDEPENDENCE.

WHY HATE? — Philosophy?

The "Why Hate" radar picked up the quote below on a post over at

"Philosophy is to be studied, not for the sake of any definite answers to its questions, since no definite answers can, as a rule, be known to be true, but rather for the sake of the questions themselves."
— Bertrand Russell

We cannot seek truth with HATE.

Self acceptance is being loving and happy with who you are NOW. Some call it self-esteem, others self-love, but whatever you call it, you'll know when your accepting yourself cause it feels great. Its an agreement with yourself to appreciate, validate, accept and support who you are at this very moment, even those parts you’d like to eventually change. [ more at]

Why Hate? — Appreciate!

Building Gardens

On their journey through the Bahamas, the RIver People stopped by the Versailles Gardens and snapped this photo for the Yhate.

It was this location that Lenny Kravits shot the video "I Build This Garden For Us" in 1989 for his debut album "Let Love Rule". There are few songs that could be more appropriate for Yhate. Oh, CHECK THIS — drums, guitar, base and lead vocals are all LENNY!!

Now, if you will excuse me, that garden ain't gonna build itself. Gotta get on meh overalls and get ta gardening. Keep yer eye out for that statue.
I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us
I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us

In this garden, This lovely garden,
I build a temple of love
Walk with the Father, Won't be a bother
To touch the Earth as it was
We'll farm the land each day
And in the sunshine we will play
Glory glory for the day He came
Our tears had gone away
We'll make love in the shade
And in the ocean we will bathe
Little fishies in the sea, Say hooray

I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us
I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us

In this garden, They'll be no war
No racial prejudice, You'll be my brother
Of any color, You'll just be okay with us
We'll live each day in peace
In hope that we will one day reach
The rest of the world, When they are ready to be teached
The kingdom will come, Thy will will be done
On Earth as it is in heaven, I build this garden
I build this garden for us, Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us
I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us

I build this garden, yeah, No war no more
Gonna build yeah, Yeah ouh.

Schools Out!

This year meh son's mother bought him a lunch box so lunch bags simply did not get created at the pace they were last year. Last week we couldn't find the box so along came 3 new bags. His classmates all wanted one and knowing his past experience he told them "Don't worry, everyone will get one". Problem: This was the LAST WEEK of school. Cuz I luv the kid I somehow managed to crank out 16 more bags for his classmates for that last day of school.

Why Hate? Go Create!

Saturday Morning Cartoon

Thought meh cat was the only one that prefers this kind of water over the fresh stuff in her bowl. This vid speaks to meh symbolically as well. A moment may be tragic at first experience but when we learn that we'll be fine in the end, it could actually be worth repeating.

"I'm Looking Over....

... a four leaf clover that I've overlooked before". Every morning I manage to find a four leaf clover in a particular area of my yard. Of course this means I've developed a reluctance to mow the lawn in that spot in fear of loosing out on the lucky clovers I might not have spotted. Eventually it becomes harder and harder to harvest what luck may be captured out there in my yard.

The solution is quite simple — cut away what can no longer grow so that a new batch of luck can grow into my life.

The Art of Detachment

American artist Robert Rauschenberg talks about “Erased De Kooning Drawing”, from 1953. In the 50s, Rauschenberg asked the Dutch abstract expressionist painter Willem de Kooning if he could erase one of his drawings as an act of art.

This vid is a cool find from "Nu"

RIGHTWay or HIGHway? Our Choice

The more we live in harmony with our Higher Power's will for us, the greater the harmony within our lives.

I wish to live in harmony with my world. Today, I will examine my actions, asking, "God's will, or mine?".

Why Hate Hibernating?

Over the holidays you'll notice a drop of posts and creative endeavors on the Yhate blog.
Seems time for blogging is hard to find in the days of observation and family. But worry not, although temporarily sluggish the posts may be, creativity and the quest for a HATE FREE society still lives and is soon to be re-awakened.

Our hopes are great but our goals are simple. Yhate continues to pose the question and seek solutions, "WHY HATE? — Go Create!" Along with the HATE FREE BLOG awards, we have many new ideas to implement for the year to come. If it's just to read this blog or to help infect the world with our propaganda, be involved.

This is a New Year Humanity!! Now go out and make it YOUR YEAR!!
