Before you diagnose yourself with a mental illness make sure you are not in fact surrounded by assholes...

Categories of Verbal Abuse

3. Discounting (saying your perception is worthless and your witness has no real value)

4. Verbal abuse disguised as a joke. (making light of abuse)

The Product Matrix

You are surrounded.

Surrounded by products.

The Product Matrix is the way corporations are controlling you.

These very corporations are killing the Earth. 

I urge you to shop local and boycott.

Grow your own food.

Get back to the Garden of Eden.

Name That Blog... Baby


Traveling down the highway I have noticed this:

If you go the exact speed limit you can see the beauty in the architect of the road. As you cruise thru you can imagine how many times they had to test drive by to visualize the path ahead. The landscapes, the sun set, the sun rise, it is all beautiful from the architect's eye, going at the speed prescribed.

As I travel down the highway of life (with no radio mind you) I realize, God has also posted a speed limit thru time and space. God's speed. So breathe, smile, and go slow. After all, he has been time traveling since the beginning and I do believe he has perfected the road just for us...

As for the broken radio. I definitely think God is trying to tell me something.

Blogger Alarm

Apparently my blogger alarm went off cos I keep writing these one month at a time on the dot.

I had an excellent idea to share with you, but I forgot it. I'm slacking... always, always, always, write it down. Every simple little idea. You can always come back later and elaborate. But you have nothing if that idea is lost in the shuffle.

I'm going back to the spot where I had the great idea. Be right back...

Nothing left there but a good feeling.

I can only hope you come back to me.

Blue Sky, White Clouds

Greeting Earthlings. As you all know I took a hiatus around the Sun and am now coming back into Earth's orbit. Gravity has taken everything away from me and bestowed a whole new life upon me.

This is what I have learned. Never take anything for granted. God will take it all away from you to show you how good you had it. Even today equipped with my new handy-dandy set of problems I am thankful for them. They are mine, all mine. All mine to keep me occupied, out of trouble, and setting goals.

Blue Sky, White Clouds. I finally understand what this mantra means. You want those white clouds in your blue sky. Trust. Life will never be perfect. You will always exchange one problem for three. 

So now as I sit here with life x's 3 wishing for yesterday's problems I turn around to the sun and enjoy the partly cloudy skies.
