Going south, we watched spring
unroll like a proper novel:
forsythia, dogwood, rose;
bare trees, green lace, full shade.
By the time we arrived in Georgia
the complications were deep.

When we drove back, we read
from back to front. Maroon went wild,
went scarlet, burned once more
and then withdrew into pink,
tentative, still in bud.
I thought if only we could go on
and meet again, shy as strangers.

I Got Kin


So that your own heart

Will grow.


So God will think,


I got kin in that body!

I should start inviting that soul over

For coffee and



Because this is a food

Our starving world



Because that is the purest




Happy Birthday ‘Murica!!!

In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present-

BREAKING NEWS:  Welcome to the one spot on the Inter-Webz where you WILL NOT find bloviated and self-serving “Merican presidential coverage.  If that is your “thing” today?  We’re pretty sure someone out there is Pinning and Tweeting something about it …

Quick show of hands:  Are you currently experiencing a “perception” problem in your life?  A quick, simple and pain-free adjustment in our own thoughts and behavior will shed light and lend meaning to seeing yourself in a whole new way.

An item we talk quite often about  is not taking care of our MINDS and BODIES with regular exercise and a healthy dose of mindfulness and meditation.  When we neglect these items the cumulative effect often leads to feeling down about the way we look.  Now the simple part:  Getting up early to Workout, choosing a carrot, apples and a sandwich over Chickfil-A for lunch …  The simple “things” we do provide an instant boost to our self-image.

Simple stuff peeps, so simple in fact that you forgot what you just read above!

The Plan-

This Is Going To Be Pretty Unbearable …

The more you Twitter the worse you run-

Shame, Shame we know your name peeps!  Not a single one of you reading yesterday took the bait we so generously tossed in your general direction:  You teach what you need to learn.  One little, painless comment for or against would have placated the cantankerous Uncle Sachmo!  But no way Jose, you were way too busy lamenting about all of your grand adventures over the past weekend … Now you shale all suffer.   Performing our best Jesse Pinkman impersonation:  Listen up and pay attention, bitches!!!

The single worst part of dispensing advice to others either in a random blog-o-post or over a few cold PBR’s is that NO ONE (re-read this again) actually follows through with what you have to share.  When most self-absorbed (<— If this word is too abrasive choose another one that best fits your personality) peeps ask a question, they already have a picturesque answer in mind-which is usually, the answer they would like to hear coming from your mouth.

Quick question:  Why ask for advice or help in the first place?  When you know you will not use it.

The challenge to our dear readers today is this:  When someone asks you for help or an opinion later this afternoon.  Zip it up and don’t say a thing to the person asking!  Listen for once and lend a good ear.  Chances are they could care less what you have to say in return.  Listen and help guide them to the answer they want, the answer they want to here from their own mouth.

Is this you?!? <—Must clicky!

Or is this you?!?<—Must Clicky(Dear Lord above let this be you!!!)

The Plan-

The Workout-

Before dawn go outside and enjoy the Moon and Venus dancing in the sky above you.  Awaken your senses with a nice flowing Sun Salutations Series, bringing balance and energy to you this morning.  What you do after this is up to you …

Hat Tip: Tyler Leavitt


Pretty unbearable indeed … Smile and ENJOY!!!

Speaking of Sharks?!?

A relationship, I think, is like a shark, you know?  It has to constantly move forward or it dies.  And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark-

The only reason this post gets put up?  Australia is so much cooler than ‘Merica … Especially the Today Show!
