Greatest moments in Blogging History Part 3 – MrMary Models & rises above Mortality

2013-01-18 14.12.10

All my life one of my greatest desires has been to travel-to see and touch unknown countries, to swim in unknown seas, to circle the globe, observing new lands, seas, people, and ideas with insatiable appetite, to see everything for the first time and for the last time, casting a slow, prolonged glance, then to close my eyes and feel the riches deposit themselves inside me calmly or stormily according to their pleasure, until time passes them at last through its fine sieve, straining the quintessence out of all the joys and sorrows.”  

― Nikos Kazantzakis


You can encapsulate a decent part of my own personal philosophy with the words of Marcus Aurelius: “The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” My main goal has always been to live, to live fully despite the bills , and responsibility, joint pain and of course not to find myself amongst the rank of the insane.

You see I am fully cognisant that MrMary is a passing cloud. 100  years from now I will be gone. 200 years for now the last person to have seen me alive will probably have passed too. Maybe there will come a time where there will remain no trace of me, or my words or my actions and I am fine with that. Meanwhile I want to ride a bike in my boxers wearing a collared shirt with gym socks and having viagra pills in my shirt pocket. There is no logical reason why  I or anyone else for that matter would want to do this.

You know, our days are so confined by logical, and it’s not a logic of our own doing.What I mean is that there are rules that define

  1. What we wear
  2. When we wear it
  3. How we interact with strangers
  4. How wer interact with loved ones
  5. How far should we let ourselves go in socializing

I have never been able to follow those kinds of rules or any kind of rules. I think it is hard to have an ecstatic view or experience of life, as I do,  and then let myself be confined by these rules.

Greatest Moment In Blogging History # 3

Fact: I Modelled & Changed History

Outside my apartment is a ladder leading to the roof and one day for no reason I started to climb it and do spider man type poses. I told my lady who is an amazing artist to  take a picture of me and turn it into something. And here is what she produced, an eternal image, a rallying call to those everywhere who feel a deep drive to live life on their own terms. Of course I took l that image and made it into a poster to commemorate such a great moment in blogging history. Bask in the effulgence.


Long after I have gone, this symbol will still remain lodge deep in the subconscious of some man or woman [I prefer being deep in women subconsciously, ( see what a comma can do) but don’t worry guys, I don’t look at you or it while you pee]. As creator of this poster I acknowledge with humility that I as talented as I am cannot produce something less flawed than I am so there is a flaw in the poster to remind us that as human beings we cannot fall in love with perfection ( look at the greek myth of Narcissus). The greater the love we move ourselves to show the greater the imperfection in the object of our affection.

Couldn’t end it on a better note
