The Downward Search for Nuance

The Downward Search for Nuance

Looking down on it, as I so often do, the room seems alive. A bit dark, but that's only because the man who lives there has went out to get dinner and has shut all the windows and doors, save mine, so as to guard against burglary. Normally it is so vibrant. Maybe that is why my mind resides there. I can find the vitality and freedom that is lacking in my actual surroundings. And even though I do nothing but gaze down into that window during the evenings, I feel as though I lived there for years.

The Reality of Virtual Relationships

The Reality of Virtual Relationships

The world of social media is allowing us, as a species, to communicate in a manner closer to pure consciousness than we have had the chance to in our recorded human history.

Let's face it. Bodies are complicated. We all have physical needs, wants, quirks, and awkwardness. It takes a lot of trial and error to bond with a person when bodies also have to be sorted.

But when we get online and we type, is it not the case that much of that body overhead can be put aside? It is for me.

Mourning Broccoli

Mourning Broccoli

In a moment of sheer genius or intuition. I plopped that huge broccoli stalk down in front of her. Assuming I'd pick it up, untouched, after my dinner.

She immediately started sniffing it. Then she started eating it. My dog LOVES broccoli. Raw broccoli. Preferably the stalks. She will get around to eating the florets, eventually. But she starts at the hard, dried out bottom of the stalk and works her way up. When she does get to the florets, it is a treat for me, because she starts shaking them apart like prey.

deja écrit - the sensory experience of reading something you wrote yourself some time ago

I believe I am not alone in realizing the fact that I spend too much time fretting about what I am writing. I would like to encourage myself – and maybe you – to get on with it a bit more.

I am relatively at peace with the world of critics who will tear what I write apart. Which is to say that they terrify me, but I cannot place the blame for my reticence out in the world. My battles are primarily internal.

I fight within myself as to my own concept of what is befitting my oeuvre.

Healing Sound

After a post of full frontal honesty, nothing clears the mind like clearing the mind. My journey with Tibetan Bowls started around a dozen years ago.

She loosened me up for around 10 minutes and then said I am going to place something on your back.

That something was the most profound healing tool I have yet encountered.

A Tibetan bowl.

A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time

This book was a very strong instigator of the way I have played the game of life. I am not afraid of inquiring about the mysteries surrounding our existence. I feel it a privilege to dwell in the uncertain and unknown. And I find it a gift to be able to bring just a sliver more clarity to the extent of what is truly possible, when we unleash our minds to travel each day, open to being WONDERSTRUCK!
