Living The Dream

Many will inspire you: Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emily Dickinson, Emily Car, Mahatma Gandhi, and much more difficult people to follow (Epictetus, Mary Magdalene).

Every present day culture or country leads by example, making daily compromises and making individual and collective choices.

To intentionally live through the principles of freedom, personal choice and democracy to name only a few.

To intentionally work out conflict and violence to live a more loving and creative life.

Inner peace is one quality of mind that is essential and requires an ongoing commitment to obtain at best in a peace meal way.

Inner peace is lost when violent and intent on destruction.

Part of the solution is to work for better peace in ones own life and for the same in others who share in these principles for peace or preaching nonviolence.

Antonio Vivaldi

“The Four Seasons “, no doubt the most popular of the composer’s work.

A man of means, a priest and musician, a talented violinist and businessman.

The survival of his music today is a testament to the joy still felt by music lovers internationally.

The Plight Of Getting It Right

Every new habit has its ups and downs,

But TV watching is a pseudonym for alcoholic without drinking in self destruct mode, but watching anything in self destruct mode!

I need to eat 3 meals a day, sleep 7 hours, work 8 hours and travel for an hour= 24 hours – 19 hours=5 hours

5 hours to live the good life each day.

But one hour is spent preparing for the next day. That leaves 4 hours watching TV.

After 50 years of viewing 4 hours a day, I have spent 20 or so years trying to change this bad habit.

Being addicted to TV 📺 is a slow suicide!

I have a plan to do something else each day. I am replacing it with playing guitar, listening to music, exercise, waking, going to the library, journaling, reading and writing, learning and much much more…

Anything but TV!

What is your poison?

Give it up.

I am one to talk.

The Clean

Packing up the vehicle with all the goodies: portable vacuum, cleaning supplies in tray, mop, water, extra cloths and bulk chemicals.

Keeping it all together with communications and driving and dealing with unforeseen difficulties.

Arriving at Apartments to clean all common areas.

Spending the time and effort do get the job ✅

Getting out of the way of residents, pets, fellow service people while doing a full clean.

Doing the vacuuming, windows, elevator, storage room, recycling room, changing the light bulbs, cleaning every nook and cranny: baseboards and heaters, doors and handles, stains and spots on walls and carpets and more…

Dealing with complaints, front office, property management, orders of all kinds, an ongoing saga.

Just another day in a light duty cleaner.
