my obsession

MY OBSESSION: EXPECTING MORE I have not really taken my best shot for a while. Been holding on and standing in the corner, doing Rope-A-Dope for beginners. Must I explain. 1974. Rumble in the Jungle. George Foreman and Muhammad Ali. Boxing...

smart. spirited. sensible.

SMART SPIRITED SENSIBLE So I am having one of those days, where everything seems to be going good. I have no complaints and just when the party seems to be getting started, I suggest and molest my better self into taking a nap. And when I...

do it yourself

DO IT YOURSELF I heard this on the radio, and now its part of my blog. The voice said, “Do-IT-Your-Self Doesn’t mean you have to go it alone.” And of course there are times when you feel very much alone, and have nobody to turn to fix the...

Mother of MORE

Mother of MORE So I went and watched NCAA basketball at my social club last evening. And had plenty of time to think about why I put myself in the game, or became a WATCHER in the first place. Some of this that I am about to tell you has to...

include the battery

  INCLUDE THE BATTERY So I want to write a blog and be original and such, but something is preventing anything but an ordinary writing for today. But to write is to signal, and blow smoke across the reservation of friends, that the old...

delicate beauty girl-child

DELICATE BEAUTY GIRL CHILD The women in this family are beautiful. “Count On It.” And sure enough, when I was young, I learned my numbers, and placed myself as number one, and my sisters as one-too-many. And that was long ago before my better...

what's it like

  What’s IT LIKE Blending my topic with your interest, and I ask myself often, “On a scale of one to ten, how important is it to me that you share my interest?” And is fun to begin this way, bringing you into the conversation, from the...

she left me

SHE LEFT ME: GAIN is Loss I like to think my blogs are reality and that between the sheets of fun and excitement, is something we can hang on to, once the moment is over. And there is no telling, but then we do. Outward signs of hanging on,...

As I See It

AS I SEE IT I like it when I sort things out, and am comfortable with the situation at the end of the day. Things have changed around here, and I know it starts with me. On this day, I wasn’t sure what I would do. Spend the day by...

More OR Less

MORE Or LESS Changing light. Clocks moved forward. Lost an hour. Lost a lot. And lately I have been over thinking the idea of Losing Something You Don’t Really Have. Throwing the baby out with the bathwater. And it has occurred to me. Should...

not quite right

NOT QUITE RIGHT Before you start accusing me, let me confess. Is easier that way. Life is a Journey. A voyaging and a passage in the sea of time and space and out of place, most of the time. But I don’t have to tell you, suddenly, over a...

more and No-More

  MORE AND NO-MORE So I thought I had this blog written, and is true, I didn’t. So I am starting over. After youth and I am starting over. Second Life. Computer Life. A Different Century. And I could spin this to all-day and combine it...

head bounce

  HEAD BOUNCE   I never wanted to be a bouncer. I dislike being around drunks. And standing on a sidewalk outside a sleazy music club, isn’t my cup of tea. And is the local language and Basketball Tournament time. March Madness. Brand...

walk up

WALK UP I am not sure if it is a city term, or if it makes sense. We can blame it on moving the clock forward one hour today. And when you mess with my light and chemistry, well anything can happen. Took me all day to get use to the idea, I just...

energy to care

ENERGY TO CARE It is pretty obvious when you walk into a room, that you are given that glance and once over that suggests strong opinions in the moment. One Look. Eye Candy. And the big question in the moment might be, “Do I Know You?”, and...

once upon a time: STONEY

ONCE UPON A TIME, STONEY Thursday and almost weekend, actually. And I am being hard on myself. Turns out I am going into regular spells of not having energy for all things I want to do. Giving not thought to why this might be, it has not...

save yourself

SAVE YOURSELF I can’t begin to explain it, even to myself. I watch. And try to participate, but it is becoming harder and harder. But I shouldn’t be surprised. I am not 21 years old, and have a lot of powder in my shoes, fending off bad...

only a visitor

  ONLY A VISITOR I started my day 12 hours ago, and my plans for the rest of my life, or this day, or shall I call it the immediate future, is to DANCE ALL NIGHT. So that sounds about right. I like this time of night, as many who read...

never too late

never too late NEVER TOO LATE “There are no shortcuts to greatness.” And then I would be asked about how much money I had in my pocket, and if I would put 10% of that in a jar for a rainy day, and the rest to shave and get a haircut and...

meditate or not

  MEDITATE OR NOT I haven’t figured out why I am doing things like I am in March 2010. Winter and let’s move on into Spring, and I wish we could do it without moving the clock forward, as it turns out, my body rhythm always gets the...

displacement

DISPLACEMENT- REPLACEMENT CHOICES When you are released from daily work, be it growing carrots to feed the rabbits or chopping wood, or designing a better knife, you find that it is best to keep busy. Starts with movement and extends on to...

personal freedom

PERSONAL FREEDOM Still doing my Mayan Mind blog series and am into the 3 rd essay and day of this exercise. And today the idea is to tell everybody what it is, intimately and personal to me, my idea of personal freedom. Simple enough. Topic...

contact the contract

  CONTACT THE CONTRACT Sometimes I stare in disbelief at the blogs I write. “Why Bother?” I ask. Seems like such a load of crapola sometimes. Laughing still at Easy2Say’s offering. BAG OF POO, $2. And this got to me.With TWINS on the...

expectations

EXPECTATIONS Was at the East-West Bookstore for a workshop on Sound Healing and noticed so many books on Maya Culture and the 2012 calendar event coming up, and yes I have been finding dollar books recently that deal with the Indian cultures...

magnitude 88

MAGNITUDE 88 So let us go together into DA Blog. Seems awkward, as I am stumbling forward without much safety net. Been sick too long. Have a slight disrespect for science and medicine as it seems to be around me in my less than great state...
