Curiosity Is The Spice Of Life

To learn how to break or form a habit,

Learn how it works,

Learn how curiosity works,

Teach her how to fish and she will learn how to live.

A Day In The Life…Of A Writer

Gawd, up at 5 or so, busy on my iPad reading and studying some topics for entries on the blog:  Day Light Saving Time (DLS) (Note to self:  Just made the same mistake about spelling this title i.e.) adding an ‘s’ on Saving, but I caught it.

There are so many things to do today, and I am in bed reading and writing for 2 hours.

I love my breakfast this morning:  smoothie!

Get dressed, put in a load of laundry, put the chicken breast in the oven at 350 Fahrenheit, do all that bathroom stuff, more reading and writing, and my 30 minute meditation using the poem, “If” by Rudyard Kipling for inspiration.

Time to organize another block of time:  Microsoft Office Personal subscription (update credit card for this account), install Excel , do excel, update 40 apps on my iPhone, look up definition of innovate=introduce new method to make changes.  This will help to keep me motivated to read and write.

I have a to do list:  Walmart, garbage, stretches, watch documentary about Canadian Youth Unemployment, Snakes(eating up arm/body) (brain storm this imagery), war/poverty, foods, breathing, relaxing, impulse -control:  don’t watch T.V., Visit Mom and Sue, Shadow Work, Movie:  Man In The Iron Mask, Book:  Don Quixote by Cervantes.

I think I will reassess the list above:  they are prioritized as follows.

Garbage, Go to store(Yates street Market is the alternate-leave of Walmart till next weekend.), check in with mom and Sue, Start Reading Don Quixote:  intro “Author’s Dedication Of The First Part” is a lot of fun.

Well, iff, I am alive at the end of the day, the visit to my relatives included lunch and supper and an evening of entertainment.

Must get to bed by 8, I will be up at 4:30 AM for work tomorrow.

Another day.

 

 

Living Paycheck To Paycheck

Being poor or living in the lower class is difficult for many people.

Education is key.

Motivation to change is critical.

Innovation will lead to motivation and a healthy change.

Too many people feel like a slave to money.

There is no simple answer to this struggle in society today.

For people who are willing and able, a preventative approach may be better than a cure.

I found this video that may be of some inspiration to you: https://youtu.be/alQdO6LFbKU

Daylight Saving Time (DLS)

Seeing the ‘big picture’ with DLS seems to be about agreement on society’s need.

Most argue about the pros and cons but most go with the flow because of it’s basic need to produce a working schedule.

Like it or not, it is time to prepare for the time change,

With all the stuff we do these days it is nice to have a heads up.

If for some crazy reason you want more information, it is simple to google the date and time for your location.

After reading all about it on Wikipedia, you may want to check out the article to settle your own mind about some pro or con about this silly but necessary change.

Unplug The Device To…

Chaos is the new spam: too much of something you don’t need!

Learning to purge the chaos takes discipline.

A series of thought experiments will result in the upgrade.

Making it work,

Socrates knew, the only way to help humanity is to help them think.

You can lead them through example, he did nothing but try to think: practice in a large way.

It’s simple in a way, decide what you want and do it a lot.

The Vacant Soul

Even within the void, the soul survives,

When all life ceases,

When the universe collapses,

But wrench away all love,

For even an instant….

There is more than a gap, or hole,

For a hole in the soul will heal,

The inconsolable are clamoring to vacate the soul,

The mighty wars are destroying what soul lies within us,

Diseases like poverty, depression, and a lack of sustenance,

Yet, as we stand clear, or when all of us have fallen, the soul will remain,

It will endure all kinds of hardships,

It will remain for eons,

But even the soul will falter,

In the darkness, in the void, beyond, there is nothing.

Deep inside this vacant place where only the soul can visit,

We can learn a lot about absenteeism, desperation, abhorrence, disgust, and resentment.

But even here the soul is free.

It is like the soul will always be of value to those who can not care for themselves or even stand to live anymore.

The soul is a hearty representative.

To extinguish the soul is beyond even our collective ability.

But to be in a state where all color fades from the eye,

All life ceases to attract,

Here is where the soul lies vacant,

But it is still waiting,

It will wait forever.

Perhaps, time will pass, and life will return.

A vacant soul awaits you.

You can return.

Strive, inch by inch, don’t give up, never say never, life is too big to go away forever,

In this sense, the soul is immortal and alive,

So if you must despair, become inconsolable,

Try, inch by inch, when the color reappears, when you can feel life in your veins again,

To rejoice, you are with your soul, try not to neglect your soul.
