Bikers Eat Broccoli

I was standing in line at the grocery store yesterday. In front of me was a “biker”. He had long hair that was held back in a pony tail. He had on a leather vest and a thick leather belt with a large belt buckle. He was wearing big black boots with a buckle. This …

I notice you

I was driving home from dropping my son off this morning and I saw a young man walking down the street in the rain.. He was punching the air, like someone who is boxing. From a distance I thought he might be having an early morning workout. As I drove closer, I could see the …

The Musical Soundtrack of my Life

I’m heading out the door: I’m on my way to work. I’m back out into the world again after a very very long time and I am energized and feel very much alive every time I head to my job. I bounce to the car, throw my briefcase and my lunch in the back seat, …

In search of..a quiet place.

Aaah! Meditation. For people who do it, they get it. For people who don’t, it might sound like some strange practice involving sitting straight back and cross legged on the floor chanting some strange sounds and staring motionless in an even stranger trance. While some forms of meditation such as Transcendental meditation do involve sitting in …

Finding The Calm During The Storm

I’ve been meditating for years. I started back in 1994, after a period of high stress,an unbalanced diet, a caffeine intake of up to 8-10 cups a day and a really bad habit of trying to be and do everything for everybody knocked me on my behind.  I had various symptoms, exhaustion, the chills, headaches, …

The physics of it all!

I woke up early this morning, excited to sit down and write. I haven’t been this inspired in a long time. I have been planning this for days. Since my last post, I spent countless hours trying to figure out how to set up my blog theme and the layout of this page. Who knew …

Googling Through Grief

Right clicks feel like an access to all of the answers to all of the questions ever asked in the history of mankind.  It is much like holding your finger out as a child pretending it is a wand and shouting abracadabra to make something appear. In this modern day, you conjure up in your …

“The Simmering”

I can feel it simmering. Something is brewing. I just have to be patient. Some would call this creative block. I call it, “The Simmering”. It feels the same as the place between leaving one stage of your life and entering the next. You must know that feeling. You were in a place that felt secure, …

It’s hard out here for a blogger!

Blogging is difficult. It’s not the writing part that’s hard. It’s the getting to the place where you can write that is. The hurdles I went through just in the last two days are ridiculous. My computer sits at the back corner of the house in the family room. If I had a visual representation of …

Let me tell you a story

Every day is a story to tell. It doesn’t matter how uneventful it may have seemed, there is always a bigger story hiding inside of it. It just depends on how you choose to look at it. I could say that nothing much happened today other than I woke up, showered and spent the day …

I finally did it!

This is a test to see that I am posting correctly. I cannot believe I am doing this. I don’t completely understand blogging or even how to set my pages and categories up. It would be much easier if I just forgot about this whole thing but something keeps pushing me forward. Maybe I just …
