Representing mothers everywhere, addressed to our children, just in case your mother has been unable to say this...   I do not apologize for who I was or am since emergence into this reality was not my choice. An array of genes sprayed me into...

Squawks In Prose

Finding my voice.   A challenging endeavour, for as the first squawks emerge someone somewhere ridicules the effort. Gleaned from psychological manuals, support is the water that inspires a bloom. Using this conclusion, how does one inspire a...

A day named August the first -

There is no point in addressing you directly. You would not understand.   Others would insist that not making more of an effort to reach you is cowardice on my part, in fact, I have no doubt it is a sentiment with which you would agree.   ...

Dear One, Are you listening?

Dear one... we have crashed into each other.   I am saddened you perceive how I am affected as a criticism.   In addition forgive me if I cannot lie down flatter.   That you have knocked me down is an innocence on your part. It is...

Oh oh... unfiltered expression

Here I am, myself and I with me. All together we are astounded with the mystery we have emerged into. No answers have we but full of questions we ponder this wondrous reality.   First of, I would like to analyze the extreme probability of my...

Temporary Sucks

Facing temporary requires courage. We peek from under the innocence of permanence and quickly withdraw pretending we haven't seen it.   Some of us react with anger using it as a protective shield creating and spreading more harm than benefit....

hell is other people yet...

We need each other. A man alone will soon discover he cannot exist without other people or at least some conscious companion. Tesla who was by his intelligence a man apart, bonded with pidgeons.   Encoded in the memory of our inherited DNA, eons...

Updating the list of lack

Good morning world.  How do I find you? Are you miserable counting the paucity in your life? Are you busy updating the list of lack? Has the negative become the only shade you see? I understand.  The negative is a powerful force. Its...

Searching for purpose

Once I searched for a purpose. I yearned for a something that would give my life meaning. Looking back, my search was based on acquiring fame, fortune and validation of my existence. These greedy egotistical yearnings hid a deeper nobler desire. I...

The Ones Who Don't Win

In this world of selective support, each of us are required to find proof we make a difference, that we matter.  In a competitive struggle to grasp the little attention which is on offer,  it is the physically symmetrical, the most entertaining or...

The Habit

The habit began easily without permission.  It sneaked into his life uninvited.  Unbeknownst of its deadly affects, he succumbed to its pervasive influence.  As a sensitive youngster, he was a pushover.  The habit was compelling in its arguments. ...

No distraction here... move along

Dedicated to open hearts who will either consider or recognize.   For the others, I feel a momentary sadness for an exclusion that does not fall under my responsibility. Scene:  immediate at the stream, regarding the ebb and flow. Not every thought...

As I see it... for the moment...

"That's human nature for you!" I hear someone say for the millionth time. Would we, humanity, become more creative if we instead changed that utterance to 'that's human habit for you'? Not to deny that in a frozen moment, we humans don't have a...

I abhor the cowardice

Why is it necessary to apologize for how we struggle?  The lie is that some of us can pretend they do not grapple in their lives. Their facade so carefully constructed that we believe their lies of how well they process this life. Don't  be...

Unconsciously we create the horrors...

Before ... I ... The world out there revolves, vibrating billions of  thoughts, expressions and actions.  No one is in control.  It is a true democracy.  The unconscious democracy is the only true one that exists. The people who rule are given...

Oh by all means

Oh yes and by the way...  by all means... be yourself ... you know that nasty, negative, complaining, ridiculing, abrasive, arrogant, hating one that can't change... Yes by all means be your fucking depressive written in stone self! Yes... be...

Time to Burn a Bridge

Very seldom do I burn a bridge.  I know that someday I may need that bridge once again.  Am I burning a bridge... perhaps... I don't care. Thank you, dearhearts for triggering my release from a too active social site.  I hardly rant.  My usual is...

Emulation

I was posed the idea by our noble Sec that emulation, a word I used in my last blog expressing why I think competition hurts us, is also competition. After an investigation, by definition, as Sec suggested, I learnt that yes, emulation is defined as...

Comfort Can Only Be Accepted, Not Given

As I read other's complaints, rants and sufferings my empathy rises, propelled to comfort.  Right on the heels of this desire is the wisdom that comfort cannot be given.  It can only be taken.  Currently tentative, I falter in my words anywhere.  The...

The Really Ugly Duck

The other day I stumbled upon some stories inspired by popular childhood fairy tales.  These stories in Jon Scieszka's collection were quite similar to the originals but ended with a twist.  Amongst the slightly perverse stories was one titled, The...

Whenever I am lost...

Whenever I am lost computing what is lacking in my life, I am miserable.      Considering my mind's warnings, listing what was missing as an important process of qualifying my existence,  my misery was insured.  Subtly without realizing it, ...

Is Everyone Doing Their Best?

Most people argue when I say, "Everyone is doing their best." They do not agree that 'everyone' is doing their best.  They believe that some people know better but choose not to do better. This view however as I see it, lacks the question of who is...

Practicing Letting Go

Saturday.  I am not energetic but it's the day we have decided to clean out the basement; we have vowed to de-clutter.    My life has entered the letting go stage.  Amassing no longer a wise choice, the current project is to execute a lighter...
