What is Life?

Grab a juicebox, sit back for a while, and enjoy my personal blog. I hope you find my topics and categories to be of great interest. Now here are some things to ponder…

Life is a challenge – meet it. Life is a gift – accept it. Life is an adventure – dare it. Life is a sorrow – overcome it. Life is a tragedy – face it. Life is a duty – perform it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a mystery – unfold it. Life is a song – sing it. Life is an opportunity – take it. Life is a journey – complete it. Life is a promise – fulfill it. Life is a love – embrace it. Life is a beauty – praise it. Life is a spirit – release it. Life is a struggle – fight it. Life is a puzzle – solve it. Life is a goal – achieve it. Life is a garden – DIG IT!

Speaking of life, let me introduce you to the book Soul Pancake that was written by Rainn Wilson (best known for playing Dwight Schrute on NBC’s The Office) and a bunch of his friends. The idea of the book is to chew on life’s biggest questions, like:

  • Can men and women really be “just friends”?
  • If you only had one hour left to live, how would you spend it?
  • What paralyzes your creativity? What fuels it?

Based on the wildly successful website SoulPancake.com, this book urges you to explore philosophy, creativity, spirituality, love, truth, science, and so much more. With bold questions, intriguing challenges, and mind-bending art, Soul Pancake creates a space for you to stimulate your brain stem, spark your soul, and figure out what it means to be human.

What’s inside?

  • 180 Life’s Big Questions (the ones that gnaw at your innards)
  • Visual masterpieces from 90+ artists
  • Unusual activities that launch you into the world
  • Exclusive commentary from the fascinating minds of: Amy Sedaris, David Lynch, Heather Armstrong, Dr. Drew, Jesse Dylan, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Harold Ramis, Josh Ritter, and Saul Williams.

CAUTION: To all the world’s thinkers, artists, poets, and misfits: SoulPancake is a movement to chew on Life’s Big Questions. Side effects may include a sudden change in the way you think about what it means to be human. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Soul Pancake’s website also provides some rockin’ content (interviews, blogs, challenges, contests, features, and more), but it’s really all about having YOU—the SoulPancake community—bring this site to life. Say what’s on your mind. Be real. Talk about WHY WE’RE HERE. And if I say something that offends you, let Rainn Wilson have it.

Just remember: Life is a rich, weird, difficult experience. So join Soul Pancake as they go on the spiritual and artistic journey of life!
