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…

Earth Day Canada

A memory from September 11, 1970

As a young boy my elders gave me a lesson on why not vandalize a tree.

I eventually learned about ecology, inner tidal zones, and naturalism.

I did a lot of tree planting and forest fire fighting as a young man.

I spend a lot of time outdoors: walking, hiking and biking.

I try to recycle, recover and reuse.

All these activities are still practiced across the country.

Earth Day April 22, 2018

The slogan this year is to consume less and pledge more…

There is too many plastics being consumed and I pledge to cook more food and buy less plastic.

I will ‘put my money where my mouth is’ and pledge more cash and resources into getting kids more playing time outside.

Climate Change is a good cause to help in the year to come, going to earth day is a proper way to change myself.

I need to read and write and therefore research this day today!

Sugarless

Try a glass of water.

Hell, try fasting. But, if you get hungry, eat Whole Foods

Eat more protein, fiber and and good fats (olive oil, avocado, ground flaxseed).

Give up sugar, you will still eat it by mistake, but give it up…

You will feel less cranky and more energy.

Try less sugar, your body and mind will thank you.

Surrender To Mystery And Find Peace

When I let go of my belief and focus instead on fear of being, can I find peace?

Yes, my meaning comes from the inner connectedness we all share through our epic stories.

All writers hope their narratives or epic works will last the test of time.

As someone who connects to people I am willing to feel the ‘anxiety of being’.

I don’t enjoy it, but find relief by connecting with and understanding myself and others.

I like to share those experiences in the form of a character and a hidden message in one of the many forms of writing.

I believe it is just another way to connect with life and transmit it in all my affairs.

I love to read and write…

Gratitude and Gratefulness…a kind of blissful essence

Love to show people how much they mean to me…

I love my apartment and I love this little shelter. I found at the bottom of the stairs: it was made by a homeless man.

He took a bench from the apartment and carried it down the concrete stairs to set up in his new hide-a-way. He had other accessories: candle, flint-lighter, blanket, ashtray, cup and saucer, and other clothing and food. He managed to stay a day or two until he was kicked out…

I am grateful he had a day or two…

I am grateful for my faculties Of thought, feelings, and beliefs…

I love my action, body and mind…

I love doing no harm to others…

I am grateful for my mistakes…

I am grateful for my recovery and relapse…

I am 100% grateful, at the moment, it is the most important part of me,like a touch stone…

I know I cannot be this way all the time…

I know I will continue to succeed and fail in many ways till my end of days…

But I wouldn’t give up this moment…

For me it is a lifesaver…

Just Another Moment Of Positive Psychology…

Reading The Writing On The Wall

It says there is a limit to people, places and things.

This is important when trying to assess the use or how to treat oneself or others.

The proper use of impressions is like having a moral compass with problems we are faced with in our day to day lives.

Sometimes it is best to follow the rules or tried and true methods worked out by previous generations.

The past has paid dearly for all the answers, wealth and experience past down from our people, countries and more…

Presently, we are learning much and receiving much that is roughly described as good bad and ugly.

And the future holds more of the same.

Yet, moral discernment is a complex ability.

We need to use it in all manner of ways.

Today I fail.

Again, and again, and then, perhaps I will learn to set myself right.

In this same sense, some of us live and learn to some degree…

What we write on this wall is a true measure of our moral responsibilities.

I like to read and believe ever word on this wall of ours.

May we all contribute many more paragraphs….
