Yeah, I feel ya, Spongebob. I wasn't expecting much from today, except trying to get some information for my house so when it's time for the improvements, all is in order. I'd hoped to have more time for Masterclasses, gardening, and writing... but the records issue sucked up most of the day. Especially after the … Continue reading Optimism, the hard crash, & stress cleaning all in one day…
I've been on a bit of a cleaning streak the past few days. I have no clue how, after months of just being listless, searching for something but getting nowhere, and having no energy... I just got up and started cleaning mid-morning on Saturday. I put my keyboard down, started some laundry, went to my … Continue reading When you’ve finally snapped out of it, but have no clue how it happened…
This is just a small question in a fabulous post by the great John Pavlovitz written two days ago. I had to think of what was bugging me (other than everything) about the "Tit Offensive" as some have called it ("Beer Gut Putsch" works, too). But that's what I found disconcerting, because from my understanding, … Continue reading Borrowed Q #157: Jan 6, 2021 was… a “revolution” of what, exactly?
My Copy: 9781982131739 (image from bn.com) Well, if you read Fear, then you can assume this is the continuation (and book-end) to what was brought up in that book. And you'd have a good reason to believe that, wrapping up just a few months before the 2020 Election. Rage is a very apropos title, namely … Continue reading Rage, by Bob Woodward
My Copy: 9780425213575 (image from bn.com) I skipped this book to the head of the line when I was about to go to the hospital for scoping procedures and knew my eating habits would need to be changed. I've been wanting to do so, but this book had some great wake-up calls and reminders to … Continue reading Sugar Shock!: How sweets & simple carbs can derail your life–& how you can get back on track, by Connie Bennett, C.H.H.C. & Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D.
I'm not exactly a luddite, but I'm one of those folks whom the weekly/ monthly planner book, pencil and highlighters have generally done a good enough job for decades. I hate having to sign in through services like Google (which has 30 things I don't care about and maybe 1 or 2 I need, but … Continue reading Needing Help from the Freelancers: I’m drowning in app options for task managing / productivity
I caught the new Dune teaser a few hours ago, which made my jaw drop a bit in surprise. Of course, being a teaser, it was damned confusing, too (and part of me wonders how much they paid Pink Floyd for that interesting slow cover of "Eclipse"). That trailer prompted me to take out the … Continue reading Q#147: Question for the Dune fans out there–is it worth it to read the other books?…
I admit, I don't really go for the Woo anymore. I used to get rocks and cool crystals and stuff when I was a kid, and like many an X-Files fan (the Mulder years, anyway), I considered or subscribed to conspiracy theories or the supernatural or paranormal and what was possible or impossible. However, I … Continue reading When emotions have become too damned much in a short time: an empath searches for sanity.
(photo from nymag.com) This has been bugging me for the past 24 hours. I mean--what the hell was THAT? Now, I admit, I'm no longer religious. The more I read the Bible, the angrier I get. I can't stand church and what it's become over the years for a lot of denominations and their followers. … Continue reading Blitz Q #133: What was the point of that Trump at Church photo op?
I don't really understand the statement, "Covid-19 is a hoax" that people are putting on Facebook, Twitter, protest signs the past few weeks. Um, Covid-19 exists. Over 80,000 people have died from it and hundreds of thousands are carriers of it. It's been around and about all over the world. So, how is Covid-19 a … Continue reading Q #132: What do the protesters saying “Covid-19 is a hoax” mean? (& other q’s about all this…)
