  1. Part 2: Adult Lessons from Michael Jackson

    After June 25th when I removed myself from all things MJ and the fandom, I saw tasks as tasks, days as days, and nights as nights. The richness of creativity and inspiration – although I cannot deny - it was THERE, and I DID experience it without MJ in my life, but it was dulled somehow. My internal self was really just going through the motions and we became separated in a way.

    On the tennis court today when I decided to suspend not only my belief in any USEFULNESS of bringing back ...

  2. Adult Lessons from Michael Jackson (and how he improved my tennis game!)

    Im back again spamming the blog section! lol

    As some backstory, I used to play tennis all the time since I was about 10 years old. I never really “liked” it, as it wasn’t really a passion of mine. It was good enough as a form of exercise, but I always found myself getting bored at practice unless I was playing a game against someone. My parents and coach pushed me to keep with it until adult hood. After college, I naturally stopped playing as often. But this summer, I’ve managed to ...

And after reading his book, it brought one of those threads home really well: MJ’s life and death was COMPLICATED. There was no solution to this puzzle I was desperately searching for. The more I took all these accounts in, the more layers were added to my, at first, simple interpretation ...

  4. Being on Team Michael: Part 2

    After MJ’s passing, it was easy to go right into tragedy-mode. As with any one who dies so unexpectantly, just like when one loses a big championship game – everyone goes over all the things that could have gone on differently. What had we missed? What could have been done? What were our (his) mistakes? How could this happen?

    For those who have read previous blogs of mine on here, you would know that I personally did not participate in such post-game analysis. In fact, I had checked ...

  5. What it really means to be on TEAM MICHAEL: Part 1

    After much reflection recently, I’ve realized being a MJ fan or on “Team Michael” is a lot like rooting for your favorite sports team or player. I recently saw a segment on TV about how the brain tricks you into getting a ‘payoff’ when YOUR team wins, or in other words you get a dose of dopamine. That’s why people are so hyped up and pumped about their teams. And I notice even when the team loses ALL the time, fans of that team still get pumped up about the next game. There’s something instinctual ...
