Upstream Dreams serves as a personal blog, it is an outlet to express my thoughts, feelings, and reactions to the multitude of interests I have. These interests may range from politics to international relations, to history to sex, love, war, style and fashion, to astrology, anime, movies and books, social justice to basketball, current events, art, music, etc.
Upstream Dreams is my way of making sense of the thoughts and opinions I have daily but usually, stay locked in my mind.
Upstream Dreams gives its readers a glimpse into my Mind’s Eye, offering my perspective on various things. Posts on Upstream Dreams may be long or short, it may be a picture or a full-length story, it really depends on the day or how I am feeling at the moment. I assure you, though, each post will be unique and thoughtful and will give readers something they never considered previously.
So what does Upstream Dreams mean? It describes, in part, the psyche of the 12th sign of the Zodiac: Pisces. Erykah Badu, in her song called “…& On“, a sequel to her more popular hit called On and On described the nature of her star sign Pisces in her second verse: ”
This describes the dual nature of those born under the sign of Pisces, one nature attempting to swim against the currents of this limited reality into the more ethereal and spiritual realms. This Fish longs to transcend this universe through spiritual illumination or enlightenment akin to the Budda, Christ, and other spiritual deities.
Unwavering focused, and determined, this fish is why Pisces are described as otherworldly or dreamy in their personal characteristics. The Upstream Pisces Fish swims boldly against the currents of time/space, the reality we currently perceive, and into the multidimensional universal waters where everything is one and bound by infinite love, compassion, and understanding.
The contrasting nature swims Downstream into the waters of materialism and the physical/natural world. Both fish are tied by the cord of fate and drags the other along in its path upward or downward.
Upstream Dreams is divided into two categories of posts: Upstream and Downstream.
While Upstream posts might be more philosophical or spiritual inquiries into things such as the nature of good and evil or pondering systemic oppressions, Downstream post might involve my thoughts on who will win the NBA Finals or the latest iteration of the iPhone…
Either way, Enjoy!
