~how it may naturally flow sitting across from you I hate saying I’m going to do something and not. I wanted to post sooner than now. In the same way I hate getting my hopes up about something and being disappointed. That’s life. Pardon the delay. Boston was a wonderful whirlwind. I never really sat but to sleep and enjoy a long desired Bloody Mary at the Cheers bar and also split a dirty martini at the hotel bar. Both relished. Aside: the Cheers tv show is equivalent to Frasier. Frasier is really an updated, sophisticated version of the same relationship dynamics. Proceeding in this same format, both as entertaining and more intellectually satisfying, Seinfeld follows. All the same premise: a … Read More

Doubt

I’m still in a watching and waiting mode. It’s mainly a time management thing. The wants butt up against the responsibilities right now. And aside from work, my personal responsibilities are heavy. I feel so un-participatory in many factions of my life. Some days it’s a struggle to even be on social media. I don’t want my year-end to close with celebratory gifts and endless List of (ANY) thing to do-read-buy, etc… Tis the season for listicals… And this will be the first year in many I (am) will ignore any list of books to read. Most are shit anyway. Tapping into the library database means I can freely (literally and figuratively) stop and start as much as I want. … Read More

‘I’m here for 15 minutes or I would’ve cancelled altogether, sorry to rush.’ I said this a couple days ago. And it perfectly sums up a worse part of my personality. Take it or leave it, one extreme or the other. And I’ve just not wanted to write here. I’ve wanted to be in my own space, minding my own business, participating minimally. Taking in so much gets overwhelming; the digestion takes all the energy. It’s my own fault. What is the purpose of this knowing? How does it serve me, or how will I use it? I Want To Tell You All The Things. Every day I want to post here. I wonder, what is the purpose of sharing this, am I … Read More

Sleep, Perchance to Dream

BrockaHealth & Wellness, Mood Room, MusicLeave a Comment

I love sleep. It is my favorite pastime, the favorite part of my day and best part of my diet, the secret to recovery and longevity. Ask any model what she does before a shoot or a runway show, every single one will say drink lots of water and sleep, even before working out. As much as I love it, I don’t do it well, such as why I am also a big proponent of power naps. Back in 1995 NASA did a study on the perfect nap time duration. They could’ve called to ask me; i’ve known since I was 8, it’s about 25 minutes. I’m so sensitive to external stimuli, all conditions have to be pretty perfect for a … Read More
