Walk On

Walking is my favorite form of meditation. I’ve tried static meditation but my mind is too active. So I sit there mentally berating myself for not being able to stop thinking thoughts or I fall asleep. It’s all or nothing with me. Walking has a monotony, rhythm, that is lulling and allows me to emptyContinue reading “Walk On”

The Tao of Me

I took a sociology class in high school. Looking back on it, it was more like an anthropology class because we studied different regions and their customs/religions. It was in this class my love of all things Eastern was solidified. I have a strange and passionate love of Eastern cultures…all of them. I love theirContinue reading “The Tao of Me”

Flipped

I struggle putting things together from written directions. Ikea is my mortal enemy. As are all Ikea wannabes. Directions get flipped in my head. I get confused. I’ve never been diagnosed with dyslexia but from all of the hack online tests and learned articles I’ve done and read, I probably have a solid case ofContinue reading “Flipped”

Charmed, I’m Sure

Long, long ago I was watching Johnny Carson and he had on Jimmy Stewart. Yes, I’m that old. Anyway. This was before TCM, probably before cable TV and so definitely before I had the chance to see many of the wonderful classics. Back then the classics that would play on the 3-5 channels we gotContinue reading “Charmed, I’m Sure”

Drop Some Knowledge

My oldest child is really artistic, so much. They animate and act and dance. They are also really athletic. Most sport have come naturally to them. So what I’m about to write is in deference to the fact that they have all the tools they need to be successful in life. They are however alsoContinue reading “Drop Some Knowledge”

Fool Me Once

I saw someone post something like ‘you get one shot to lose my trust then it’s gone’. I almost replied with ‘yeah me too but you get like 3-20 years of repeated offenses and then I might get serious about ghosting you and giving you the cold shoulder’. I’m an easy target. I’d like toContinue reading “Fool Me Once”

Nostalgia

I’m in a nostalgic mood right now. I expect it will carry through right to mid August when the kids go back to school. This time of year always makes me reflective. Maybe because it’s too hot to go outside and do anything so I’m coop up thinking. Never a good thing for me. ThinkingContinue reading “Nostalgia”

Jerky Boys

I grew up surrounded by the XY chromosome. My adult life hasn’t been much different. So I’ve spent the better part of my life turning down beef jerky when it’s offered to me. The most recent was when my SO offered me some. When I turned it down flat, after they picked their jaw upContinue reading “Jerky Boys”
