Outgrow Beginners Mind

I took the past week off to meditate, and read books by meditators. Many ideas were useful – I’ll cover them in future blogs. But first I want to comment on one that jarred me: The idea of beginners mind as something to be…

My Prosthetic Floats

The owner at my gym asked me if I had a bikini for summer.  I think he was teasing, and he’s been hitting on me lately, which I think is totally inappropriate. So, I took this as an opportunity to give him a straight line and possibly turn him off at the same time.  “Of course. I need one to hold my prosthetic.”

 

I’ve tried the one-piece mastectomy swimsuits.   After the suit is thoroughly wet, the prosthetic sinks…

Starless Fragile Red

I woke up from a dream and the dream was me. I was embedded in the matrix of a new life and the old life at the same time. I was able to…

Drunks in the Hood

There are two bars on my block, and several others on nearby blocks. So, when I wake up to find my flower box half-way down the block with dirt dumped out and flowers torn, I don’t know which bar overserved. At least I know that the drunks weren’t driving, unless they ripped up flower boxes while meandering toward their cars.

It’s never just my flower box. It’s flower boxes all the way down the…

Crazy Client of the Day



Some of my computer clients ask me to do the simplest things, like download a file from the web.

That’s what this client said she wanted. She’s an out-of-towner, so she brings her computer to my house.

She asked what time she could bring her computer over. I told her 9 AM.

She said she’d be here at…

Minority Population

 There are about, what, now? 315 million people living in the US. Of those 315 million, approximately 3.5 people are homeless. That is around, what? One percent of the population. 
 
We are, currently, the smallest minority in the nation. Interestingly, we are all colors of the rainbow, from all walks of life. We are educated, we are beautiful, we are intelligent, and we continue to evolve.
 
In just the three years I have been a homeless person,…

Vegetarian Propaganda Backfires

Our local library offered a free vegetarian cooking demonstration – which means watch us cook and get a free meal.

My husband, the alien, and I went. It was a sales pitch and we came home with the “wrong…

New

Several times a week, I hang up on folks who call claiming to be Dell Technical support. They claim to know some nonsense about my having an infection in my computer that isn’t a virus and can’t be caught by my antivirus program, but that this mysterious person has managed to detect without even knowing what kind of computer I have.

But this time, the caller didn’t feel dishonest. And I had written to Dell about when…

Separate and Equal

Last week I went to the Constitution Center to hear Dr. Danielle Allen of the Princeton Institute of Advanced Studies discuss her latest book, Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality. She says, “In just 1,337 words, the Declaration changed the course of the modern world, but it is now rarely read from start to finish.”

The Declaration begins:…

A Scarlet Letter

I’m not a fan of The Scarlet Letter. It’s just one of those books that I thought everybody reads – like the Bible. It’s one of our common stories, with one of our common and therefore short-hand images. Kind of like Juliet talking to Romeo from her balcony.

Recently, I watched the movie Burning Bridges with a group who were for the most part younger than I am. This movie features a community discussion with 6 young men…

A break in the daily grind

Nicola Tesla where are you now?

Tesla1

What a sad state of affairs that we all talk about Nicola Tesla now. His genius surpassed Einstein and his gifts to mankind were of tremendous bounty but we never saw any of those things while he was alive.

Albert Einstein2

The corruption of our government isn't a new thing. The corruption of all governments for that matter but what I find criminal is that our government is as if not more corrupt…

The Myths of Swimming After Eating

 

Whenever we had a picnic near a lake as a child, we were told to never EVER go swimming for at least an hour or you were going to have cramps and die. Each time I heard that particular ridiculous information, all I wanted to…
