The electrical service was out all afternoon at the organic market along with about every other business in DelRay yesterday due to a transformer, offering a sliver of insight into what the first day of the last days of civilization might look like. Self-centered, childish behavior on display by young, educated, affluent people was unnerving and disappointing. I shudder to imagine what might happen in the event of an actual emergency.
I’m done peopling.
Relationships. A man is surrounded by the reflections of his own soul
These wild things that we displace for the sake of a parking lot, the raccoons evicted from underneath the porch, the wasps that have spent the summer diligently building their nest beneath the eaves. We eradicate “pests” for our convenience and safety with very little regard for the niche of life and purpose that they have evolved to fill and, in doing so, we extinguish a hue from the spectrum of our spirit and destroy something wild within our own souls.
“It is not a turtle tha...
“It is not a turtle that crosses the road but rather a road that crosses the mountain”
Love’s the only thing that’s ever saved my life
Fragility. Endocrinologist holding out on refilling a longstanding prescription until I had made an appointment lead to an interruption to my accessing slow-acting insulin for almost a week. The indirect impossibility of controlling blood glucose with fast-acting insulin alone has given me insights into my own death; this is the way it will be as the exogenous insulin runs out or the supply chain breaks down.
Most of us have relatives, some of us have family
Difficulties have shaped my experience of resilience like a corner, we’re literally backed into a corner where there is no longer a roomy field of options and choices we might’ve enjoyed previously. As with irrational numbers that gradually diminish, becoming smaller and smaller the further the divisions stray from the decimal but never end, I’m reminded that we have and are everything just not everything at once.
. . . That some moments are better than others
Micro-dosing at the unfulfilling retail job can really salvage even the most frustrating of shifts.
This is the best question I’ve ever read here!
Maintain a vibe that attracts it
Stay curious to realize it
Be present to enjoy it
Try not to manage it too much when I luck out and find it
Have the right fam around to share it
Keep healthy to recover from it
After my shift yesterday, I’m just grateful for a day off
Bark less, wag more!
“Complaining digs us deeper into our emotional ruts. Humor, compassion, forgiveness, and gratitude are the 4-wheel drive of a joyful heart.”
After the Great Housing Swindle of 2008, we moved enough times that I’ve located all the tiny images of “Sammy U” that are hidden in the graphics on the sides of every U-Haul moving van. My duct tape kingdom for a walk to the beach.
I’ll throw in a horse for anything south of Hatteras along the Outer Banks.
I’m familiar with Yogaville!
My wife’s at a Nats game as I type this with her friends. Not my idea of fun, LOL
I’d cure type 1 diabetes and share that cure, free and clear, with everyone, everywhere;
and Novo Nordisk, Dexcom, et al (who are beholden to shareholders and profit, not patients) would have me killed
