Social Media verses Self-Evolution

Follow my blog with Bloglovin November ’15 Review I read this picture with quite a lot of relief, truthfully. Where most people place blame outwardly, I often need reminding it is not necessary nor constructive to internalize everything or beat down myself so much. And the ~so much~ is the root of the problem: Today’s World The link goes to the Lefsetz Letter, a blog by an experienced exec in the music biz., touting ‘first in music analysis’. This one highlights great observations: Scarcity is History or More Information, Greater Ignorance.  He was recommended by Seth Godin, an internet entrepreneur-genius I admire. Bob Lefsetz writes in a one-stream-of-thought style and yes, mainly about the music business, but the post are … Read More

Apology Tour

BrockaMood Room2 Comments

I don’t cut people any slack. I’m your worst boss. I’m a hard shell with high standards. Few see me or know me as emotional. But the center is soft. I hover over my every move and analyze my every thought, so why wouldn’t I project this behavior onto you? Who do you think you are?! I don’t cut myself any slack. I have the right to offend. Everything to me is a literal observation. This is why I straddle the line of autism, this is why I find sarcasm NOT FUNNY or sarcastic. I even hate the word! Shoot me before I will watch a late night comedian. I find sarcasm irritating and annoying. I get along better with … Read More

Memories and Memoribilia

When I was growing up, I was the least affluent of my friends. I had many affluent moments and a handful of exposures to some great wealth, but generally speaking… There were 3 significant homes I had with my mother. The most impactful -relevant to this post- was the house I lived in during my late junior high to high school years. I’ve written of it before. Worth a read. A short story. Needless to say, i’ve come to reflect on it as a tiny museum shop, without the fantasy that term might actually suggest. There were walls covered in pictures and shelves with stuff, tedious furniture items mainly used to display other things on, multiple shadow boxes filled with … Read More

Often, and this happens quite often: I’ll be thinking on a scene or place, a forgotten person, or an idea : and then immediately someone is going to or returning from that place, a number of food bloggers are manipulating a nut or vegetable in the same off-handed way, the long lost friend calls or actor is back in the news randomly, and a business blogger will acknowledge the same concept or working theory I just settled on. Call it coincidence, but this happens weekly, consistently. I know that the internet in and of itself is a brain; but it is connecting us in a new way too. A micro example of this: a couple very disparate blogs I read … Read More

I wanted to acknowledge how appreciative I am for the birthday wishes and messages I received yesterday, from near, close and far off. I felt wrapped in a hug all day. I love various penmanship, too. Last week was a tough week for me personally, mainly because i was putting up resistance to changes I needed to make; yes, it’s often in our head. I’ve got to stick to my guns and chase my passions. Nothing is perfect the first time and I will re-do it till it’s right. I’m not patient with myself, either. One thing I wanted to share was how I am officially off coffee (12 days), at least till an upcoming trip to Portland, Oregon in … Read More
