Day To Day

Routine encapsulated by a period of 24 hours.

Mundane habits that suit life like breakfast, lunch and supper.

Many activities like visits with people who share our lives and ambitions.

To go on walks and accomplish chores, and sundry activities.

What a wonder to live in peace among so many people.

Gratitude to the few and the many for this simple day.

The Will

He blew his mind out with a kind of drunkenness, or sleep deprivation, or simple distraction.

Or was it a kind of duel personality, the one who lives and the one that survives.

I call these two parts of myself the Philosopher and the Animal:

Philosopher: I must practice restraint and give up desire, for it is prudent to learn from aversion and do no harm.

Animal: I want what I want, give me it now, I need to eat!

P: I see it is wise to be a good neighbor like I strive to be good to myself. To me, the good life means to use proper impressions that do no harm.

A: I will it, now, I will kill or die for it now.

P: You can be my friend but do not try to kill me or I will be forced to restrain you.

A: I am cunning and will not kill you, now what will you give me?

P: I can not bargain with you my friend, but I will not harm you and will help you from harming yourself or others.

A: Then you are in my debt. You can pay me with your life and then I will take everything.

P: I am sure you will try, but for my part, I am grateful for my life and that is why I am grateful to have you as a friend.

My debt is the job of the animal.

My will is the job of the philosopher.

To find a balance between these parts of myself is my ultimate challenge.

I believe we need to collaborate and cooperate with these two selves to learn to live, laugh and love.

My Debt Of Gratitude

The future is full of virtue,

It feels like my friend and acts like a saint,

The art poetry shows a depth to gratitude that fills my mind with peace when I toil to produce it.

This noble parent is still bearing it’s offspring,

Keep pride in mind when virtue fails,

Do no despair while the future looks so fair,

Fall perhaps upon the past with it’s great wealth of fodder,

Reexaminations of mistakes, with their solutions can bolster the imagination.

The estate of mind can build a present that can capture this moment with great recollection.

And the past is the greatest teacher to the wise students or practicing philosopher.

Be here as often as your mind will allow.

Don’t squander a moment with doubt, you have arrived to live, laugh and love.

Give others your treasure and keep your practice alive: do no harm.

Cicero calls upon her as the mother of all virtues, you may ask her to call upon you.

There seems to be a buzz on ‘all about’.

What are you ‘all about’, eh?

Maybe it’s just me.

But popular culture has been on this a lot.

What about you?

What about the stuff, pronouns?

How many people are we talking about?

Maybe abbreviation is key?


A bout?

Bout, eh?

Promote without ads,

Publish using traditional publishers,

And never be rich,

For the love of words,

Loving characters, plot, story,

The truth about self publishing is not more dark, it is different.

Yet, writing is difficult enough without the harsh judgment of traditional publishing or self-publishing.

You choose, but what is traditional anymore?

The writing business is more complicated with all the new internet devices and the way the public uses multimedia on every imaginable device.

Art for art’s sake, seems old school.

Education is key,

Sales and marketing is growing along with the whole industry,

“…Into Hell Is’t Entsy, I mean easy!”

Sorry for the use of Shadow Hunters, S1,E2.

I can’t resist. I was spoofing on a riff, where I envisioned ‘Entsy’ in place of ‘easy’.

Maybe, I will look into ‘Entsy a little more…

The free dictionary says, Entsy-the Uralic language spoken by Yeniseian.

It gets pretty technical from here.

I have always found people more important than science, but anthropology can help us understand each other and language helps too.

The world is massive and the people diverse.

It is worth getting to know each other on any level.

“If” by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you are blaming you…

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those to Imposters just the same…

If you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run.

Yours is the world and everything that’s in it and you will be a man my son.
