What’s next?

If you’re stuck in “I have no idea what to do next?”  try doing something completely different.  I once worked in an office where there was an archway into the middle section of the space.  And a great majority of the time, when people walked through the archway they forgot what they had come there for and had to retrace their steps, go do something completely different, to figure out what it was they had needed.…Details

Phoning it in

It’s fair to say that most people do not enjoy the work they do.  Most subsist or do whatever it takes to survive.  It is a modern notion that the majority of people can have ‘fulfilling’ jobs.  And luckily we live in a world where there is the possibility of making that happen. …Details

Removing the obstacles

There are obstacles in life that can’t be changed.  If you’re paraplegic, that’s and obstacle we haven’t figured out how to move yet.  There are a lot of tools that you can use to help you do more things and be less restricted, but the fact is that you won’t be running marathons and no amount of positive thinking will make it so. …Details

Previous Lives

I have never quite understood the notion that this one life is all we get.  It never felt right to me, because if that were true, all mistakes take on such crushingly huge proportions that we might never move.  It means that childhood, especially if it is abusive, is just a waste of time that we do really need to rush through in order to get to something relevant. …Details

Fall into each other

Fall is the gathering time.  Gathering in of crops, gathering in of ideas, gathering all the lost bits and pieces that got strewn around during the play of Summer, gathering our wits to deal with everything that begins again in fall like school, work, projects, and plans. …Details

Beyond Boundaries

People make structure out of chaos.  That’s what our highly developed brains are supposed to do.  It’s our one weapon for survival in this dangerous place we call home.  We have no fur to keep us warm when temperatures drop, we are slow-moving, we have no defensive weapons, we basically have our brains, opposable thumbs, and the ability to stand on our hind legs which is a minus when it comes to speed, but a plus in other areas. …Details
