Dateline: By now, from reading Overheard, Pt.1, Pt.2., you know I’m working away at the Professional Bull Riders Rock Bar. I’m on a barstool slugging back coffee and tapping my laptop, surrounded by partiers who are not in Las Vegas to edit a manuscript. Periodically, one of them whacks me on the back and tells me to stop with the laptop, that Vegas is for partying. As the night continues and my ‘friends’ drink and drink, those whacks are harder and harder. I order a glass of iced wine to numb the friendly encouragement.

Okay, let’s get one thing straight right off. The disaster was not all my fault. Today is a very windy day. On an even playing field with no wind, I could have saved the others.
A lack of furniture forced me out of my cave and into the new world, the one where the next generation lives. As far as technology is concerned, I give them their fast and clever thumbing. But when did the kids take over furniture? Not that technology hasn’t led me down the path of updatedness. In fact, the 60” HD at the end of the bed is the reason I’m out More >
Dateline: DFW Airport International Branch Headquarters, chair in the corner, face to the wall.
First, I’d like to apologize to those unfortunate passengers on flights with me this weekend. If you are thinking, “Maybe I was on a plane with her and I didn’t know it,” you were not. If you recall a short blond woman, her agonized face mashed into the window, who seemed determined to cough up her lungs, or heard one side of the 737 you were in crackle and thunder, just maybe you were. I’m very, very sorry.

Your Emotional Guidance System…exaggerates how much other people’s choices actually affect you.…I am reminded of the wife who prayed when leaving the house with her husband driving…that their car would at no time be behind a woman in an SUV talking on a cell phone….Because, should Fate be so unkind…the tone of the outing would be sacrificed to a rant on the downfall of society.
Your Thinking Guidance System is able to distinguish between events passing over your life like puffy clouds in the clear blue sky…and events truly affecting you….such More >
This T-Shirt caption had me thinking how each person has their own comfort zone. How, for example, for some people horses and writing are in that comfort space and website development means stepping just beyond and being anxious like crazy. Anxiety is the body’s response to real or perceived threats. How could learning a skill be threatening?
Learning a new skill can be threatening if you have the belief you are supposed to already know everything, or have the belief that everything should be easy for you.
Which got me to thinking, ”To what degree have I let my choices be determined by my Emotional More >
The feathers. As you all remember (Doubt entry) when the lady went up on her roof and split the pillow? She learned what happens when gossip, or any negative or positive bit (flake, feather, comment) is set free in the world. The effect is like thousands of little bits of what you say lands on, sticks to, and changes others. AND remember–NO GUILT here thinking about all the negative feathers you’ve shot into the atmosphere.
You remember when something against the rules was done in your third grade class, and the teacher looked out across the room and said, “I’m not talking More >
We’ve lived in the same house for years which has a large laundry room on the second level. The dryer, like all, has a removable lint filter (cleaned often) which has behind it a tube leading through the wall to the outside. Sometime during growing up I was told that if you didn’t keep that tube clean, it was a fire hazard. Then I’ve seen thirty foot wire brushes designed to clear that pipe. (Okay, it was that Air Mall More >
