The SS Addendum

Continuing on from the previous Secret Selves post…and then we WILL NOT visit this topic for a while, as my resolve and emotion has been made clear by the end of this post: I have a vintage black leather chaise lounge/fainting couch by the front window in my living room. My favorite repose is reclined on it at the end of the day enjoying a cocktail – by 5 pm, if I’m home that early. Last week I was in the usual: with the window blinds pulled up and the outside street-scape in full view. I live in a medium to moderately affluent neighborhood. I’m directly across the freeway from the very affluent SMU campus and Highland Park neighborhood of … Read More

How much do you show of yourself online? One may think they are private because they don’t partake in any social media; but every article you read, word you look up, illness you attempt to self-diagnose, thing you buy off Amazon or any! site…these are all little footprints defining you. The theme of this post explains itself: The 6 Links That Show You What Google Knows About You Everyones Worst Page on The Internet To loosen the angst, this is fairly funny. Before Google, Here’s What NYers Asked The New York Public Library This fashion blog is beautiful in its simplicity. What I Saw Today He just colorfully sketches guy’s clothes style.

Time Is on Your Side

We made it. Passed the holidays, all our pieces are still in tact. The new year, the perception of a fresh start, as it actually just slides into another… Time is speeding up. Have you noticed? No, it really is. But here’s the best part, the time between what you want and when you will get it is also shorter now, so there’s that. You must act on it, no waiting around. And I have been spending time and waiting. Since Sunday, I believe my body has been physically glued to my bed with illness: no reading, no Netflix, no nothin! There have been moments of mental conception and new creation inside of this fatigue, and my own path has … Read More

Time Loop

‘Oh Hi’ existing blog, sorely neglected because all the thoughts stay lodged in my brain, either over-thought or neglected after a whimsy of interest; verses each tended to, uncovered, investigated…as if *steps* are needed before I can actually just sit down and write it. So many whims and flutters of interest, intrigue, insight. To sit and disclose one thought means I must pontificate on the subject whole-heartedly, as if it needed googling and thorough research. Do we come into any day-to-day conversations needing prior research? As if that is what our cell phones sitting on restaurant dining tables insinuates. And if only this were the case…Oh if people were so intelligent they would have less to say. Let us all … Read More

Fully Engaged

The pendulum has swung. From the radio to the television to the computer to all the handheld technology, the debate on how much we have become disengaged from each other rose so sharply that it descended just as quickly into the sharing economy.(hinted at in the prior post) The argument is nil, as this picture shows.   We never stopped being present, but more things are being presented to us simultaneously. No one can physically or willingly pay attention to all of it, because we each have distinct taste and only pay attention to what we are interested in. Regardless of the many cell phones sitting on the dining tables interrupting our ‘quality time’ and conversations, we now have more … Read More
