I’ve been thinking a lot about cooperation lately. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’ve been watching the lack of cooperation in Congress and am hoping for better.
Whatever the roots, my thoughts tend toward the performing arts. Artists are known for their egos and their temperaments, but what they should be known for instead is their cooperative attitude, especially those in the performing arts. Yes, there are those whose egos become impediments to cooperation, but most performers I’ve… Continue
From Two Whos:
Yun went shopping over the weekend. More accurately, Yun accompanied one of her friends shopping. Knowing that Yun is not a shopper, nor beauty salon visitor, Cece was excited for her: “Good for you! Have Fun!” Yun was a little apprehensive: “Yeah!” This sounded suspiciously like Cece’s excitement over the SEO!
Yun stepped into the Dillard with her friend who had the intention to buy a pair of pajamas, a pair of shoes, and… Continue

Sometimes, You do not Know Something is Wrong, until you know that Something is Wrong!”
Cece has lost a lot of weight and is meticulous about her meal planning. She uses a nutritional program and plans her menu every day. This includes weighing and measuring her food when she is home. As you may remember from a previous post, Cece has been looking at all kinds of variables to explain why she… Continue

My lovely machine (to me, anyway) stands neglected. I haven't ridden in over a month and this galls me every time I look at it. Look at it's headlights. See that glint of reproof? Meant for me and only me, muchachos y muchachas.
Perhaps I should state here and now my intentions for this new year? Public humiliation as a punishment for failure is a great motivator, non?

There is a saying, “ When it Rains, It Pours.” For Yun, it has every truth in it.
After the Saturday fiasco, (see “I am not Guilty”), Yun is back to her normal self, productive and happy. However, it is as if there is an after quake for her emotional storm. Yun’s life is full of ‘events’. She has had quite an eventful “day after” with one thing going out of order after… Continue

Hey! By now we all know that if our operating system is not working, we change it out and get another. If we were speaking specifically about computers, we might change from Vista ,which people felt did not work well, to Windows 7
Yesterday, Yun was working on changing her emotional operating system and today I am working on changing mine. Changing our belief systems..or the way we operate is… Continue
It can be little discouraging when running about the town, and all you see is people everywhere with bags of stuff. What is all this stuff? It is likely not needed… but wanted … just because.
Well, there is nothing bad about the stuff, but the desire to have things, bigger and better things, in order to be happy, is irrational. Like the rat running on the wheel trying to go somewhere, the true… Continue

I just had to post this picture of the airport when I dropped my husband off so he could fly to Seattle to work. This is a stranger..don't know who it is, but they were the only car behind us when we stopped to unload. There were only 3 cars in front of us.
In Seattle, where my husband will eventually get off the plane, there will probably be about 100 cars out front in the 4 or 5 lanes the pass the front of the airport, and in… Continue
In this season of counting calories, I found another statistic last month that concerns me about how much I’m consuming. The New York Times reported that we Americans take in 34 gigabytes of information each day.
That translates to 100,000 words a day. Written or spoken, printed or televised, texted or phoned. And the variety of sources grows constantly: YouTube, Facebook,… Continue
So far I've dropped off hazardous household materials and taken a collection of glass bottles to go live in the great glass bottle ranch in the sky. Now, I find myself faced with a slow New Year clean out of my garage. The cardboard boxes I have no problem with - break them down and toss them in the recycling box. Unused (but still useful) items have been taken over to Thrift Town as ARC donations.
But what was taunting me were the two old… Continue
