There Is A Season

Let's out deep breath wishes another cup of tea would make itself and bring itself upstairs to me... It is October. Not only is it October, it is three weeks into October. We got home from a few days respite in July to a slew of home improvement projects that, for one reason or another,… Continue reading There Is A Season

Mr. Mercury

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kijpcUv-b8M The other day someone shared this great quote from Freddie Mercury that really spoke to me. I've found several versions of the quote.         What that means is that what he meant when he wrote whatever it was, and what the listener/reader gets out of it or interprets it as, may… Continue reading Mr. Mercury

On This Valentines Day

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APx2yFA0-B4   One of the most wonderful things within the many fine and good examples that Bruce Lee left us with, is his example of inclusiveness. Despite being met with prejudice throughout his life, he seemed to hold no such feelings in his own heart. He continuously broke with traditions. He fell in and love… Continue reading On This Valentines Day

Can You Hear the Quiet?

I've been doing some serious thinking about the world lately. Can you hear the quiet? This serious thinking isn't a new thing for me. This bout of thinking began with the drug induced suicide of a rock star. I'm referring to it as drug induced because we'll never really know and the fact is that… Continue reading Can You Hear the Quiet?

It Is Still Beautiful. Chris Cornell.

Grunge is the music that my generation created, whether the label of "grunge" is one that was met with approval or acceptance or not. Passionately philosophically divested in many ways from the heavy metal and "pretty" hair bands and glam bands of the heyday of "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" of previous generations, the… Continue reading It Is Still Beautiful.

Believing Again, II.

This will be the first of two posts today. The last few years, as previously mentioned, have been not a little challenging. I made up my mind a long time ago to let the challenging times, that's a nicer way of saying the bad times or the hard times, make me a better person, not… Continue reading Believing Again, II.

Intellectual De-Evolution or a Cultural Cycle?

SO... Second episode of Wayward Pines, season two... Blood Harvest... The youth leader Carrie utters the line... "Our lives are more important than his arrogant." My thought... "arrogance." Incorrect usage of the word, wrong form. The line should have been... "Our lives are more important than his arrogance." What I think is, how many people… Continue reading Intellectual De-Evolution or a Cultural Cycle?

Shakespeare, Darlings…

It's Shakespeare, darlings, try not to screw it up. Several years ago I went on a trip with my husband and there was this guy walking around wearing a red and white t-shirt with a picture of Shakespeare on it and the caption read, "This shit writes itself." For some reason at that very moment… Continue reading Shakespeare, Darlings…

OPEN 24 – 7, But It’s Closing Time: The Re-Rewiring of the Internet Affected Brain.

Recently Iโ€™ve been thinking about how much time we, I, spend on the internet. Iโ€™ve thought about it before.   There was a time when I did not want a computer, whether it was a matter of being something of a technophobe or simply a general leeriness for reasons that I couldnโ€™t quite explain, the… Continue reading OPEN 24 – 7, But It’s Closing Time: The Re-Rewiring of the Internet Affected Brain.

Latitude

Latitude A man is allowed to write about whatever he wishes to write about and if the writing itself is good or bad, he is then judged to be a good or bad writer. It does not matter what his subject is, however grim, depressing, grotesque or perverse, he is a writer. Historically, women have… Continue reading Latitude

Gypsy

    Remember the "family vacation?" Not the high-end, modern, version so often depicted in television and films, matching luggage and airplanes, but the old-school, load everything in the car and drive there family vacation? Roadside rests, gas stations, fast food, or the deluxe meal at a chain restaurant, sleeping in the car, drooling on… Continue reading Gypsy
