I awoke in the middle of the night, thought of a mantra and returned to sleep without writing it down.  Dreams swallowed it so I begin again, assessing who I am, where I'm at and where I'm going, and then releasing all of that to see what percolates up. And from there comes thoughts addressing...

   I have trouble understanding how 3 seemingly bright young Americans were captured 'hiking' in Iraq. What in the hell were they thinking? Who goes 'hiking' in Iraq for godsakes? Didn't they realize there is a war going on? Aren't there thousands of beautiful places to 'hike' that aren't...

As I've passed the half-century mark, I've come to the place in life where I no longer finish an unenjoyable book or movie rental. There is a point I reach at which I know I've spent enough time at an unfulfilling piece of fiction, and can expect more of the same if I continue. So if (after a given...
