I proceed

-- by Luminosity  
I proceed. I am led by impulse. I am led by emotions. Sometimes I am led by a craving for baked goods. I have been led by avoidance. Lately I am led by better judgment, by considered opinion, or by God.  I fly crooked and circle back. I pull backwards. Sometimes I attack. I feel feelings or I feel the lack. I try to includ...

What I did today

I was up with, I was up with the crack of 9:30. I went out to do something. Dealt with some stuff. Someone said something inflammatory. I told them off. Basically the rest of it went pretty well. I remained calm, mostly and present. After that I went to a nearby farmers' market. I got some stuff there. I should have a bumper sticker on my ass that says I...

Appetites Like Stray Cats Outside A Window

Quoting from A Tender Struggle Story of a Marriage by Krista Bremer
Algonquin Hill Books of Chapel Hill, 2014 "In the past my appetites were like stray cats outside a window, staring at me with recriminating yellow eyes . . . But now they scaled the walls of my self-discipline and clawed at me, demanding carrot cupcakes with cream-cheese frosting ....

Are You A Tea-holic?

Posted by Luminosity , in Tea Blog, Food & Drink 23 January 2016 - - - - - - · 231 views
tea
Could your teeth be described as sepia-toned?
Do you know where all the bathrooms are?
Have you become violently angry over the subject of tea bags?
Are there no teas sold in your immediate area that you would care to purchase?
Do you know the difference between first and second flush Darjeeling?
Have you been known to ask for the manager? Are you t...

So

Had some good news. Something had been rescheduled so I didn't miss it. Whew! Seems like my efforts did pay off after all. In spite of those efforts, however, I don't feel as clear and light as I should today. Have a headache like rubber bands on my head. Maybe I'm consuming too much acidic stuff and not enough raw food and juices for my current routine?...

Preacher Syndrome

Posted by Luminosity , in Personal 31 December 2015 - - - - - - · 327 views

A disease that afflicts men usually over forty. They are as fallible as anyone but seem to need to preach to others in inappropriate circumstances, usually in a loud vice. Can be brought on by listening to sermons.  
Not everyone can be the sermon giver. Some people have to be the audience. Just because you are a man of a certain age, doesn't qua...

Did all I could today. It was intense. Normally rest of day would go well, but today it was jagged/uncollected. Contretemps. Endless dysfunction in the younger people working in businesses these days. Strange. But I did all I could and then went out to get away. Did my best. 
Always grateful to have clean clothes, hair and food. Some other stuff goi...

I feel so disappointed

Needed some hot meals but something interfered with that. Too bad, I was all set for them. A store malfunctioned. They could have done better to fix it. Just tried some soup from another place. They say it is tortilla soup but it tastes like someone doctored up some corn chowder, which isn't even a soup in my opinion. They have corn chowder on another day...
