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.

 

 

Avocados, again!

There seems to be an interesting kind of relationship involving nutrients and the body.

In this case, it has to do with eye health, specifically to do with two nutrients available in avocados.

Well, if you are interested in learning about it, watch the following vid.https://youtu.be/rY-t1USXObY

I am tempted to talk about the nutrients and how to get them from avocados, but I will leave the choice up to you.

 

Back To Home Plate (watering the plant)

“Abela Abela  Green, where art thou, Abela?”  As I walk in the door to my apartment, I see a rather depressed looking plant.

“You look completely dehydrated, how about a drink?”

I take her in my arms and swing her big ass into the bathtub and turn the water on her.

I leave her there for a good 5 minutes.

I turn off the shower.

I return about an hour and a half later, “How art thou Abela?”  I survey her body from top to bottom.  I don’t miss a curve or a ‘white lily.’  “Back to home plate.”  I carry her gingerly out to the plate I sit her on by the window.

“You should be good for another week.  Take it easy girl.”

50 Shades Of Pain

Gallstone pain and pregnancy pain pale in comparison to broken hearted pain.

Afternoon pain is similar to evening pain but the latter is grayer or something.

Can pain gain from celebrity?

Wandering pain is never really happy, until it settles down.

Why go through the pain?  As if there is a choice.

This is very painful.

More pain please…

What a pain.

Yes, pain me please.

Top ten pains can show how ridiculous it is to try and control pain.

Suffering through enough pain is like a contract renewal:  there is never really enough to satisfy.

In the middle of all the pain, I just have to keep telling myself to go for flow, the here and now is what really matters.

Is there such a thing as lucky pain?

Pain can be philosophical. .

Surrealism

What’s next?

I don’t know.

Beauty and Truth, don’t always look pleasant, the same, or stoic.

To show how it really is, takes a little play acting or showmanship.

The old cliché is to exaggerate the truth to make a point.

Why are you pressing that knife against my flesh?

Look, it is just made out of rubber and it bends, and flops around, it can’t even hurt you.

Salvador Dali famous painting showed a time piece melting in painting with all sorts of distortions, exaggerations, humour and odds and sods.

Plant Therapy

Abele Green is my 15 year old Easter Lilly that needs a haircut.

She gets equal work for equal pay.

I have the responsibility to water, weed and repot her.

She keeps me honest and freshens up my place.

A reminder of my friendship with my mother, I try to treat her with TLC…
