Walking work  The handful of exceptional entrepreneurs I know are extremely busy; like, you have to contact their assistant to schedule a 5 minute phone call kind of busy. The better of them use the general coffee-tea-happy hour cocktail hour meeting as a chance to kill two birds with one stone, whereby they walk. An opportunity for exercise. When I was in Santa Barbara back in March, there was the walk through the farmer’s market meeting. Grab some fruit and veg, get exercise, discuss business. When I was in Boston, I was being a tourist but also walking through plans. Recently in Wisconsin, clarifying ideas and objectives seemed to come specifically from walking. Last Saturday’s book editing proposal involved walking … Read More

Ode to Sleep

BrockaHealth & Wellness, Mood Room, MusicLeave a Comment

From where I sit: I’ve slept ~6 hours in the last two nights, each. This.is.no.bueno.for.me. Zombie-esque. 7.5 hours is my minimum. I hate everything otherwise! I don’t verbalize it as such, but I think it. I think it so hard. I am concrete being drug through mud. Over the years, under the guise of this fog, I’ve made objective observations. The experience has repeated itself enough, I can somewhat rise above it. There’s always the general anger over the circumstance; the physical ache within my self, my body; the negative thoughts…The real fist punches are the negative thoughts. Now an observer of them, I can classify them as ‘other’, as apart from me and very circumstantial. I’ve learned to overcome … Read More

The daily diet particulars may vary any given week, month, or year; but this is not about food. Finally the day has dawned, and I’ve added a distinguishable link for Books to my blog menu. This post is noticeably short, because I want you to go there. and my angels around me in unison sing, ‘Hallelujah!’ The bookshelves of individuals is great insight into personality, am I right? I left out some categories. You’ll especially notice if it’s a particular genre which occupies a lot of your reading. I hint at others. Books are personal. They take up residence in both our minds and our homes, or in data on our tools. They need readers to even exist. A book … Read More

A number of the more popular podcast interviewers I listen to do a little answer session of submitted questions occasionally. A few others just read and answer daily mail during the week. I’ve decided to just throw things out there for this one. Much stirring currently. I sang all day today. Hallelujah to that! I visited with a friend I haven’t seen in 3 months. He’s been in Los Angeles gutting-restoring-furnishing a place he bought. His Dallas home is behind a church, and after years of negotiation, the church bought the block, so they could expand. We’ve known each other 10 years and this feels like one of those life shifts But oh how life is very cyclical, how small the … Read More

Discipline

I’ve started singing again. I want to make note of this. It’s been awhile. There has been a terribly long dry spell. I would like to blame it on my podcasts listening verses music listening. I’ve entirely changed my environment. My current environment doesn’t seem to breed it.  A lot has changed in the past year. I neither hear myself in sounds of soliloquy casually around my home, nor in the shower, nor freely belting in the car; and I have definitely not creatively puzzled together lyrics for a new song. I’ve wondered if the whole singing thing blew in like a breeze and left as quickly as shutting the window pane. {typing this line kinda breaks my heart, so … Read More
