For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.

However, let it be clear from the get-go that we in no way encourage or practice oppressive happiness: the colonial, ableist, sexist, racist idea that one must be constantly happy, inviting of and emitting strictly ‘positive’ energy (as if our spiritual, emotional, mental energy conformed solely to the binary on which we understand computers and batteries to function), and that to do or be otherwise causes illness and/or perpetuates it…Many practitioners believe disability and illness can be cured with a ‘positive attitude’ or ignore the effects of oppression on health while urging us to cheer up…We never simply give-in out of hopelessness or out of a colonial idea that we must individually remain happy, ‘positive,’ and policing of those who are read as ‘negative.’

"She was the still point of the turning world, man. I never got over that girl. Never. I mean… you know, I loved a lot of ladies, but not like that. That was real. I’ll never forget the first time I saw her. I didn’t know what had hit me. I didn’t know what to do, cause it was so easy with all the other girls, but she wouldn’t look at me. I was never the kind to pursue, if you know what I mean. That girl drove me crazy, man."Trip Fontaine, The Virgin Suicides (1999)
