5 Twenty

To time.

Having just watched a fifty three minutes episode about the brain of Einstein, I am in a time warp. Space moves around mass, distorting acceleration. The universe is expanding. And I’m just laying around in my bathrobe watching my smart TV.

I did my Crossfit Class at six o’clock. I quickly, donkey kicked myself into a handstand.

I went and surfed. I took my time and waited for the waves to slow down.

Now I know that the universe is responding to my movement. I thought it was the other way around.

Time stands still while you surf, and then it takes an hour to drive home.

A second movie which lasted seventy four minutes was about magic and miracles. It was all done in a timely manner by a man that talked rapidly.

I heard myself repeating his words in slow motion, not simultaneously.

I could feel the hands of time and the waves of motion.

My bathrobe is aging at a separate time from myself, as viewed by my Smart TV.

They are light years apart.

And my grandmother, watched the Edge of Night, as The World Turned.

Time after time.

Not of this World

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADespite wealth, fame, and accomplishments, all human beings are subject to impermanence. People, places, and material things will always come and go; we can’t stop it. There are times we will be stripped of everything we have tried to hold onto. Once we accept those seemingly unacceptable circumstances, we will be led to surrender; and on the other side of surrender is a joy and peace that is not of this world. (From The Mindful Addict)

It’s a new day, of a new year. And today my resolution is God-conciousness. I have zig-zagged for thirty years. I get side tracked. I become involved in worldly things. It never works. Continue reading Not of this World

My Desktop

Don’t lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality.
Ralph Marston

My desktop is full of inspirational quotes, such as, the one above. Surround yourself with the positive. “You can do it!”

When He Was 25

1986

We had gone back to the Island, after a year of travel. First we had gone to Houston. A word of warning, don’t bother to bring marijuana with you, to Texas. It’s cheap and plentiful. Second, take some with you to California. It was hard to come by and outrageously expensive. But we know that things have changed and I would have no idea concerning cost or availability of any drug. But back then, it was a different story.
