The Two Whos on life's little things -- "I do not wear anything"

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

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Calibrate your Food, Calibrate your Thoughts"

From the Two Whos

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

I Resolve to Evolve

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?

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Singing in the Rain, Dancing in the Downpour!"

From the Two Whos

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

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Eat like a thin person?"

From the Two Whos

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

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "What is it that we need?"

From the Two Whos

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

Albuquerque Airport

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

34 Gigabytes a Day

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

Further Adventures in ABQ Recycling

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

So GOOD to be home!!!!

It's so wonderful to be home working in my own studio again. There aren't enough exclamation points to cover that statement. Every day it's been cool but sunny. I saw from experience, New Mexico is truly one of the best states in this country to spend a winter in. We do a lot of travel to Michigan and Seattle, and between the two, it's usually grey skies and either snow or rain, or both.…

And Now, A Breakfast Experience, In Memoriam

There are restaurants of all ilk, possessing personalities all their own- like the ones where the chefs come out in their whites to yuk it up with the clientele. And of course, there's the kind that have rude waitstaff as part of their schtick. I like those. I have patronized dining establishments that were true "neighborhood… Continue

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Extreme hair cut"

From the Two Whos

Mary Oliver has a beautiful poem describing how our attention changes our perception of the ‘perfect’ Lily…how ‘perfection’ is an illusion, as well as is an imperfection (see bellow). When things get a little ‘unexpected’, look at the ‘light’…see the way …. and the veil of perfection and imperfection will fall away. Yun has experienced it over the weekend.

Yun gets a hair cut once in while… Continue
