What I Learned from Casper About “Ghosting”

What I Learned from Casper About “Ghosting”

“Ghosting” — I don’t like that Casper the Friendly Ghost’s profession has been given a bad name. I mean what did the friendliest ghost you know do to you? When I was a kid the Casper of my childhood cartoons, Golden Books and comic books wasn’t like all the other ghosts, he was different, he made friends with people and rejected haunting people. Again the friendliest ghost you know. He would never modern day “ghost” anyone.

A few thoughts on getting through, what happens after a suicide, when you are the one(s) that are left. What do you do, how do you cope and make sense of things? This is a personal story of my family.

When You Break Up With Your Phone & Invite The Quiet

When You Break Up With Your Phone & Invite The Quiet

I have thirteen Twitter accounts on my phone that I “manage” or do things with for either my two companies, a smattering of clients, organizations, and a few family members (they get stuck sometimes).

I have six Facebook accounts as well, three Instagram, only one Snapchat, a myriad of messaging apps and conference calling software.

Countless email addresses, seven that I actively use daily.

A bunch of Office 365 Tenants.

And now double-digit Microsoft Teams.

One Slack, yes just one.

And I am absolutely and utterly angry that I now wear readers, which I lend to many to read menus.

As a member of the globally known band The Black Eyed Peas that is exactly what rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, DJ, activist, and cancer-survivor Jimmy “Taboo” Gomez does every day. Social justice warriors come in many shapes and sizes, and Taboo brings his heart and passion to many groups and issues that are near and dear to him for the betterment of our world.

Despair. Disappointment. Disgust.

Despair. Disappointment. Disgust.

I see a lot of social posts about despair, disappointment, disgust, and “what is happening?”

The dismantling of one’s ideals and what we thought is true, of who we are and what we stand for as a people is disheartening.

But you are not the first nor the last that this will happen to, it is and has been happening since time began.

For new ground to be broken, there will be cracks and fissures that swallow people up whole.
