52Musings is my writing experiment that explores thematic interconnectedness between the various disciplines of creativity and the closely coupled themes of mindfulness, philosophy, gratitude, technology, science, music and art. Through this process, I am learning that I am thriving in the confluence of multiple disciplines, and discovering the mind-blowing through-lines between them all. By writing, […]Read More What is 52musings?
You are on a tropical beach with your toes curled in the sand. The sound of the palms brushing together in the breeze teases the coziness of rain without a drop in sight. The dance between the grains of sand and the motion of your feet discards any overactive thoughts or preoccupation. Leaning forward, you […]Read More #50 – Two Words … Twice
Happy accidents want to be found, but they don’t like being sought out. These beautifully complicated anomalies appear when you least expect them. They are fed by a genuine and general curiosity of all things, and they usually present themselves as a collision of interdisciplinary ideas resulting from uncluttered awareness and a conditioned-free perspective. Can […]Read More #49 – Old Guitars and Happy Accidents
Just because you can’t see something move, it doesn’t mean it didn’t move. The smallest actions and movements are not visible to the naked eye. Does that mean they didn’t happen?

Without preparation, this noise will infiltrate with a vengeance to […]Read More #46 – Mastering Harmony on The Road To Uncertainty

The world is not always what it seems to be. At least that’s what my recent fascination with physics tells me. Just because something doesn’t manifest in the three-dimensional world, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. The observable world that surrounds us is governed by classical or Newtonian physics, which involve a set of laws […]Read More #44 – Ideas Are Not Classically Physical
I can’t begin to fathom a time where I couldn’t sit at a lunch counter, share a water fountain, or ride a bus with a friend. These were not unwritten rules, guidelines or suggestions, they were explicit regulations plastered across our towns and cities supported by the public servants of our local, state and federal […]Read More #43 – A Little More
Every minute of every day is littered with choices. What should I wear today? What art project should I put together for my son’s class? Should I call her? Should I help him? Should I buy that bitcoin? Should I partner with that company? What should I make for dinner? Could physics apply to that […]Read More #42 – It’s Elementary, My Dear Knowledge.
It’s amazing that such a small change in the single digit of a four digit number can be the catalyst for deep reflection. A few days ago, we lost a seven and gained an eight, and the mere additive transaction within the Gregorian calendar led me to a quick review of the year. What was […]Read More #41 – My Favorite Creation of 2017
