Potency and Value

Potency and Value
  Potency: or … bang for buck. It’s a young and burgeoning marketplace. I soon hope to find some standardization on formulation. I’ve talked to a couple folks about potency. Maybe this picture will spark greater clarity. I’ve used two ‘recipes’ of Charlotte’s Web CBD oil; the middle grade and th [...]

Artwork? Play

Artwork? Play
I’m spending some time with ink, pigment and paper; attaching eye to shoulder, wrist and fingers. Never really doodled. New ground. Just fun. I also attempt to disconnect from the judge, critic, historian, reviewer – just being the do-er.   Share this:PrintFacebookGoogleLinkedInTwitterPinterestPocketTumblrLike this:Like Load [...]

Tools

Tools
Someone said, (a couple years ago) they (she) thought I might be (probably was/is) an artist. I first heard this in July 2015. It’s now late February 2018 as I write this. I’ve been buying paint, paper, and brushes, (in limited quantities), ever since. Maybe, just maybe, I needed another, (just one more) tool before I start. Maybe [...]

a Mind at Home ….

a Mind at Home ….
A few quotes from …. A Mind at Home With Itself Byron Katie Page 20 If you think that someone else is the cause of your problem, you’re insane. You do the work on your own thinking, clean up your own mess, and the problem disappears. Life always becomes simpler and kinder when we questioned or stressful thoughts.

Roasted Mexican Grasshopper

Roasted Mexican Grasshopper
Last night we went to chat about time hopping and parallel universes with a small group of folks in an old house undergoing wonderful remodeling. We spent a lot of time in the new kitchen with wine, cheese, sausage, crackers, and roasted Mexican grasshoppers. Yep. With all the regular snacks available there did not seem to be a lot of interes [...]

Flip the Definition

Flip the Definition
This idea occurs to me after reading books, quotes, and ideas from Byron Katie (www.thework.com). She asks, or challenges us to ask, the four questions. And then, more importantly I think, ask the turnaround questions.* When I started to talk to myself about ‘flipping the definition’ I simply mean to examine a thing, event, label [...]

Every-thing-ness

Every-thing-ness
Everything is all there is. Nothing is apart from it. All of of every thing unique – not the same as any other thing; snowflake, finger print, grain of sand, galaxy, zebra hide, diamond, turtle shell … this moment. This moment. This moment. Are you getting the idea? We get slowed down by similarities, comparisons, judgements. Yes, [...]
