Blog Fog

I've been in a fog, haven't had much to write home about really. The heat, life, and all of the little 'this and that' have had my mind spinning around so I have been moving in high gear, and physically unable to sit and write lately.

I'll be back on form soon, I owe it to myself since I love to write, not just because I hope you comment, even though I do hope you comment.

Reading through old stuff, it would be nice to find something interesting... an old letter, more of my old teenage journal entries, something that might be entertaining. Maybe more voice (podcast) entries, but nobody really comes around enough to say, "Yeah, do ____ (fill in the blank)."

We used to have a blog-hood, people hanging out and buzzing around each other more often, now it's more like those projects that end up deserted and boarded up... kinda depressing.

"Radiation Blues" by Dax Riggs

Bury this and the rhythm of breath, there is only death
Maybe you're dead and ya just don't know
A shadow dressed only in sorrow
Tomorrow might not exist and ya should've been dead
Should've been dead like ten times over
Like ten times over
Should've been dead like ten times over
By the hand of your lover
By the side of the river should've been dead
Bury this song and the rhythm of breath
There is only death
There is only death, only death
These radiation blues sister
Gonna make me true
Movin' through the bones of you
These radiation blues
Movin', movin', movin', movin'

Time For A Cool Change

This has been a really long, hot summer to me... I read someone's status earlier that stated they had complained about the heat in their neck of the woods, and they thanked Mississippi for reminding them of what heat really was. I concur. So, no I haven't felt a lot of relief from these insane temperatures, and it has had the effect on me of making me not want to do much of anything really. I've not even felt like blogging the last few days. I honestly don't feel like it now, I just wanted to say a few words.

Today, my main objective and accomplishment was getting over a raging headache, so I wasn't feeling well for most of the day. I finally took enough Advil and a hot mineral bath, and ate a bit of supper and feel kind of human again.

In short, I can't wait for fall... late this afternoon when I stepped outside it actually felt pleasant and not like I was sitting between Satan's legs.

There is hope yet. Time For A Cooooool Change.

Dream, Dream, Dream

Today I looked down into the small deep eyes of an innocent puppy, and she only reminded me of all the spirit and soul that truly exists in the world. As small as her little canine eyes appeared, they were a vast universe of wonder and love. She looked directly into mine, unfaltering, as I sat still and stared into hers for a silent moment.

It was as if they were a portal to an entirely bigger better world... perhaps they are.

Yes my weekend has been o.k. so far, I visited my mother and I managed some time to myself to breathe. My mind has been quite tangled up in a fantasy world the last few days, and I cannot lie, I am not upset with that fact.

Some might think that staying in a fantasy world, and not "growing up" would impede your adult life and cause you not to fit into your 'adult costume'. But you see, I can take care of business, do whatever 'big kid' things I need to do, and still revert back to my flights of fancy and my world of dreaminess.

It's a special, if not rare quality if I do say so myself.

Now, let's have a quick moment of silence to allow the Negative Ninnies their chance to insert a cynical and sarcastic comment.

Thank you in advance for those, they are duly noted and promptly tossed out into a recycle container where I then have them turned into fertilizer for my lawn or other greenery.

Environmentalists can be proud.

For the rest of us, who are trying to ascend and become the best 'we' that can be, and we are spending our time wisely, filling our glasses full of joy and not poison, then we can move on to more positive thoughts, such as the following, by ME:

The only thing that makes anything IMPOSSIBLE is your belief that it is impossible. You already have everything that you want. How do you see it? Maybe all you need is a shift in perspective...

It's All In How You Look At Things!

That's right, it's Sunday and if you are here, then you might as well enjoy a bit of inspiration from your good ol' Aunt Jackie.

More favorite 'points to ponder', and a magic evening to you all! ;)

Don't miss the donut by looking through the hole. ~Author Unknown

Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth. ~Ludwig Börne

There are some remedies worse than the disease. ~Publilius Syrus

You can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep. ~Navajo Proverb

We are spirits clad in veils. ~Christopher P. Cranch

What Is Life?

Simple thoughts I would like to share today in the words of good ol' Mother Teresa (even though I am not Catholic or anything), I think these words are quite effective... Enjoy!

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
Mother Teresa

While I'm at it, why not a couple more?

Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine.

The healthiest response to life is joy.
Deepak Chopra

When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life.
Monty Python's Life of Brian

The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth.
Chinese Proverb
