To Bloom and Fly

If you try to force a flower to bloom, prying its petals open, you will destroy it. If you let it be, to do what it does naturally without your "help", in its own time, in its own way, as nature intended, it will open itself to the world. If you open a cocoon before… Continue reading To Bloom and Fly

Dream Bigger

Do you ever let yourself daydream the most fantastical daydream you can possibly imagine for your life? Some people don't daydream like that. Others will come up with a great "dream life" and then put the kibosh on their own daydream as being "unrealistic" or with the phrase, "it could never happen." Over the years… Continue reading Dream Bigger

Forward

This isn't what I was going to write about today. I was going to write about dreams, about thinking positive, being happy, and dreaming bigger. I'm going to save that post for another time. Perhaps tomorrow. I logged on to my computer today and the first thing I saw was a headline about the shooting… Continue reading Forward

New Motto

I have a new motto. For some years now my motto has been, "Get up. Go on." It is a good and fine motto. There is nothing wrong with it. I may continue to employ said motto if and as needed. Now I've got a new motto, "Dream bigger." Dream bigger, because it is a… Continue reading New Motto

Inspirations

I've re-started a Tumblr page, and I've created a companion page to this page. The goal is, to keep what is good, to focus on the good things, to find ways to use the internet creating one's own filters for content while also creating content. I couldn't take anymore of the ugliness. I am a… Continue reading Inspirations

The Vibe Changed

  I've been tempted to log back on to twitter, to save my account before the thirty days is up. I've resisted that temptation. I've lost track of my phone several times in the last six days, since completely exiting the social media merry-go-round. No sooner was I tempted to get back on twitter, than… Continue reading The Vibe Changed

2019, a moment

Update

I am now free of all social networking sites. Last night, after much thought, I deleted my Instagram account. This posting is essentially for any of the few who were following me on any of the sites. I'm not there. Feels good. TS

2019, Great Songs, Music

The Music

https://youtu.be/BU-EVLryGxo   I can tell you at least one unequivocally good thing that I did get out of having used social media, it introduced me to some music, way back when, that it's likely I'd have otherwise missed. ~ Teri     https://youtu.be/1xqaQrlXV6o   https://youtu.be/R68rSUlrScU https://youtu.be/paeNnR33i5Q https://youtu.be/obcgU-oLjnA     https://youtu.be/ypwcitHSEQo     https://youtu.be/uv-EZx-qI_8

The Monday Night Movie of the Week

https://youtu.be/qnGgsJ26dao   Network. If you've never seen this movie, I'll tell you that the May-December romance between characters played by William Holden and Faye Dunaway, is slightly less believable in this day and age, but that it is an otherwise incredibly brilliant bit of intended satire that has turned out to be stunningly prophetic if… Continue reading The Monday Night Movie of the Week

Making Changes, Driving the Car

I am off twitter once and for all and for good. (Only took how many tries?) They just changed their format anyway and, I wasn't digging it. But, I'd already made my decision. I think the point at which something goes from being something useful and enjoyable, to being a distraction, for whatever reasons, it's… Continue reading Making Changes, Driving the Car

Ergo Ego

"There is something about yourself that you don't know. Something that you will deny even exists until it's too late to do anything about it. It's the only reason you get up in the morning, the only reason you suffer the shitty boss, the blood, the sweat and the tears. This is because you want… Continue reading Ergo Ego

R.E.M.

https://youtu.be/xwtdhWltSIg I just got home from a couple of (sober) perspective altering days in the mountains. I'm contemplating, mulling, a post about that, but it got me to thinking about these quotes, and this R.E.M.ย  song. "We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all of our exploring, Will be to arrive where… Continue reading R.E.M.

Earthquake Weather

This implies that I smoke cigarettes. I don't. I value my lungs. I used to smoke cigarettes, and I was excellent at it. Here's the thing, I am a thinking person. I am also a feeling one. Shallow waters, I ain't. I can create beautifully themed web layouts for myself all day long but if… Continue reading Earthquake Weather

What Makes You Happy?

Here's a quote from the book "Illusions", by Richard Bach... "In the path of our happiness shall we find the learning for which we have chosen this lifetime." That makes the question pretty simple, though perhaps the answer(s) won't be.ย  What makes you happy? When are you the happiest? What are you most happy doing?… Continue reading What Makes You Happy?
