hello... hello... hello?

is there anybody out there? (yes, pink floyd)... and yes, i know a few of you are there and read silently and that's fine, but i do care about you all the time and hope all is well and want to know how you are so i ask directly like this, from time to time :)

you don't have to feel in the mood to answer at this moment, but just know that i wanna know and i appreciate the information about you know cuz i care about you :)

it's one of those nights (maybe eagles too) where i actually slept, but woke just after 4am and was awake, mind full of thoughts, some chasing their tails and others concerned with unfinished business and others excited about changes... the two thoughts (after emptying the bladder) that brought me to sit down here were a new kitten and a new job, on that order, at least consciously... jackson's friend rescued a tabby kitten she found and is raising it, taking case of all of the health and training and such and jackson wants to adopt her (the kitten, not the friend)... you can find more pet thoughts here... the second thought is the new job... they called today and all the screenings and paperwork cleared so i start orientation monday morning... so it is good excitement and likely why i am sitting here and not in bed...

but also, seriously, how are you? :)

Haven't been in email for a while as you see, but hanging on here keeps me from detaching completely from communication... thanks much for the yay... hope today is a good day...

it's a windy day. a very windy day.

isn't detachment supposed to be some kind of enlightened thing?

maybe even more so on a windy day?

i like the wind, even when it is on the dangerous side, though i like to be able to find a safe place after a while too... too much wind is tiring... i hope it does not get too windy for you...

yes, the right amount of detachment at the right times can be enlightening as it allows a clearing of the mind of emotional and clutter leaving room for expanding perspectives... meditation can allow detachment from the physical reality, quieting the mind, kind of like erasing a blackboard so anything can be written on it... i find that through writing... used to find that through running, music, sex, even food... sometimes through movies/tv...

letting go of the real life connections for any period of time can be very healthy... but do it for too long and unhealthy habits or illusions or both can fill in the empty spaces in the mind and life...

maybe even more so on a windy day :)

I'm here. I've always been a big fan of new beginnings. Hope yours have been lovely.

candoor said...

yay thanks Steph, so far really good... lovely and fun and rewarding and easy so far, though i definitely see enough challenges ahead to make it fun (cuz easy is no fun for long)...

and keep writing - i love reading you :)

Likewise! :-)

Catch up (and know more)

musical distractions

If people had visible signs or meters that told something about them, what would you want it to tell you?

dumb poll (above), smart responders

all the previous poll votes were somehow erased, so, nevermind... ironically or coincidentally or whatever, the results were very close in practical numbers to the results above shown with just three votes, if you understand the mathematics behind that extrapolative reasoning... i will probably remove the poll at some point... it is a ridiculously useless feature...

SEARCH ME

the thing is, with my tendency to babble and meander and whine and allow distraction to take the lead more often than not, even in this blog that sort of meant to merge brevity with focus like some bloggers do, searching for key words does not always lead to specific information about the subject of that key word... but... here is a start at an easy way to search for key words in this blog... use the search box at the top of the blog to search for words not listed here... if ya wanna, that is... and feel free to suggest words to add to this search shortcut section... click on the words below :)

WORK ... JOB ... MUSIC ... LOVE ... SOFTBALL ... KA ... 42 ... LOL ... LAM ... LAA ... ... ...
