One of my friends posted this on Facebook and I was compelled to share after I saw and read it. Then afterwards, I got to thinking…
In math, 1+1 is always going to be 2 and no one argues. I love the definitive quality of it… Hence, this is the reason why I have a tainted view of history. It’ll “always” belong to the victors or rather, who controls the narrative of a culture. We like those “grand heroic” characters but in reality, it’s the relatively unknown minorities (ethnic, socio, and/or economic) who truly changes things.
Anyways, the caption that I read with the photo above reads below…

On revisionist history… “In the case of e-mail, very much like TV, it wasn’t done at MIT. It wasn’t done at the the military. It wasn’t done at a big institution. It was done in Newark, NJ, one of the poorest cities in the United States. It was done by a dark skinned immigrant kid, 14 yrs old. So the narrative there is what changes and it shocks “certain people” who want to control the narrative; that innovation can only take place under their bastions.” - V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai (the REAL inventor of E-Mail 8/30/1982)

There’s comfort in knowing the world doesn’t revolve around me. I wouldn’t be able to keep things in orbit.

—Just came up with this tonight… So yes, I guess… me.

Concrete bouquet. What a survivor. 🌸

No clue who this guy was until I stumbled onto his work last night. All I know is that I just ordered a book of his poetry… All because I felt the BRAVE vulnerability in his work. // Cheers @beautaplin ⭐️ #newfan #art #poetry #words #powerful #inspiring //

Took this photo weeks ago when I got in really late (or early a.m. depends on how you look at it.) …apparently, this flower only blooms at night. apparently, I AM this flower. #nightbloomer 🌌⭐️

When night owls unite. 2am life. Repost from @jeremypassion. #Beatles #Yesterday #MiniCover

Shared the stage with DRH for his show this past weekend. There’s a part of me that doesn’t want to make a big deal out of this but for real… It’s a check mark off my list. We’ve written together and even had him produce my stuff but never sang for his material (let alone live) until now. Didn’t really think stuff like this would happen. Feeling blessed and I just wanna cherish it at the moment. @

So fun! Thank you @drh3. (at The Satellite)
