Perhaps you're wondering, "what does 'dig my sneaks' mean?" Exactly. Now you've got it! Truth is, I named this blog the first thing that popped into my head and stuck with it. In a retroactive endeavor, I will now give meaning to this obscure title.
First, let's take the word dig into consideration. Just know that all conventional uses of words will be dismissed in my blog-- keep up. I like to take the more "artistically distorted" route-- if there were such a route-- in my writing. Consequently, I am not using dig in the context of digging a hole. No. Rather, let's think of it as to understand. Perhaps you've never interacted with a slang-savvied individual-- let me create a quick scenario:
Two men are having a conversation. One is explaining, the other listening. At the end of his explanation, the explain-er asks "You dig?" or simply "Do you Understand?" The listener responds, "I Dig" or "I understand". Very Simple stuff--stay focused, we're almost done.
The word Sneaks is simply a derivative of Sneakers or shoes. Typically, shoes are worn on the feet, which are used for walking (of course, to every rule there is an exception-- I've seen some rather bizarre things pertaining to feet happen in Riverside, especially off University). At any rate, My Sneaks is synonymous with my walk which is often symbolic for my life.
Dig My Sneaks therefore simply means "Understand My Life"-- Granted, not the most philosophically rich Title, but it will do. In order to Dig My Sneaks, one must know 3 things about me:
1. In a world of macro/micro-blogging, people are obsessed with following and or being followed by others. I, on the other hand, deleted my twitter in hopes to be more committed to the following of Jesus. If ever I decide to get another, I'd like you to "Follow me as I follow Christ"... Mkay, I made a new one.
2. I'm a starving artist/student. Not necessarily in that order
3. Writing is my passion-- I appreciate every read.
Welcome to Dig My Sneaks, an online environment conducive for thought provoking conversation and most importantly, spiritual enlightenment.
Let's enjoy ourselves, shall we?
