Wu-Tang Clan is something to bake with
After traveling through Bavaria, Austria, and France for nearly a month, I thought I’d come back with plenty of Blog fodder. Between Jen and I, I’m sure we took more than 1000 photos, and there’s a story to tell, and a discovery to share for each day we were gone.
But honestly, I don’t know where to begin. I could show you photos of the countryside, quaint castles, the Eiffel tower, but it’s about what you’d expect. You’ve seen all of this stuff in movies, and that’s about what my photos look like. If you’ve seen any of this stuff in person, you know that photos and movies don’t do it justice. Not even close, really.
The most interesting things I experienced were the social and cultural differences. I could go on about this for hours. One of the observations I made was that the European people seemed generally more secure. Insecurity is truly the root of all evil, and the driving force behind our ridiculous consumption, and generally bad behavior. I’m sure when your country has centuries of history, you have a better sense of who you are. I can only make broad, sweeping conclusions at this point, and I’m sure I’m not the first to realize this, but if countries were people, then the U.S. is definitely a teenager, and Europe is retired. I love that been-there, done-that, self-assured, no agenda, self confidence that old people have. I want that, and I want to be surrounded by people that have that. I guess I know there’s only one way to get that: Time. And unfortunately, it will probably take us hundreds of years, and a couple more iterations of the government.
Between larger projects, I make lot’s of small stuff. Check out this custom cookie cutter for fellow Wu-Tang Clan Fan Devoya Mayo. Here’s a couple photos supplied by Devoya, host of the Enter The Wu-Tang Tribute.
