The Borg Loses in the End

This, to me, is the ultimately heroic trait of ordinary people; they say no to the tyrant and they calmly take the consequences of this resistance. Philip K. Dick

Yesterday, three million women and men marched in every state and on every continent in the world. Every continent, even Antarctica. In 51° below Kotzebue, Alaska, people marched. In sunshine and rain storms, desert heat and arctic cold, people gathered to resist. Of course, the naysayers mocked and dismissed. “Resistance is futile,” they quote The Borg, an implicit confession of corruption. They forget, the Borg is destroyed in the end.

It’s All About Headspace

Cajsa built us a gym on our islands, which really feels even better than my converted bathroom for working out. There is something to be said for getting away from your life and selfishly focusing on yourself for a little. It calms me, it helps me better at focusing on other people when I get that time away. It makes me WANT to get back inside my own house and I feel a little joyful about it when I’ve put everything into a hard work out.

I love it.  Continue reading

I Will Always Wear A Kimono

Every once in a while I will get super ambitious and shoot ahead like I’m a young, super enthusiastic blogger who is planning ahead. My enthusiasm is usually crushed by my typists real life and then I’m stuck spinning my wheels around my little island home, decorating and playing my my pets. It’s not a BAD gig by any means, in fact it’s a lovely place to be.

But I get annoyed with her for acting like I don’t exist for days on end. Continue reading

Free, unrestrained and unhindered.

“the things in our control are by nature free, unhindered, and unobstructed"

Epictetus wrote in the Enchiridion, “The things in our control are by nature free, unrestrained, unhindered.” We control our own actions, words, opinions, what we like, what we don’t like, and what we want. If we stick to what we control, he suggests, we are free of restraint. It is when we try to influence the things outside our control that we are trapped. It’s good advice. The difficulty is figuring out what we can control.

That’s been on my mind a lot. There’s a lot I don’t like happening, but what can I control? I can choose despair or resistance, that’s up to me. I need to focus on what I can do, not what I wish would happen. So even though I feel like kicking more than an exercise bag, I will instead focus my mind and my heart on resisting despair.

My Inner Peace Is In Here Somewhere

Collabor88 is inspiring us all to find our inner peace and get the lead out this month with their theme of GYM CHIC. I suppose the feeds are going to be full of folks working out, thus count me among them. Yet, it’s not a bad idea after all. Keeping yourself centered and focused and healthy should be a priority. Perhaps if we focus on it for our avatars, some will bleed over to our typists? Continue reading

And bring your dollies three

“It's too cold outside for angels to fly.”

Blueberry / Show Time / Maitreya – Nel Shoe

Hey, hey, oh playmate,
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree

Slide down my rain barrel
Into my cellar door
And we’ll be jolly friends
Forever more, more, more.

“It's too cold outside for angels to fly.”
