Weekly Collage


This is a rather strange cacophony of how I was feeling today. But it's done and I'm moving on.

Off to see Capital Steps tonight. I've enjoyed their musical political satire for twenty-five years now and I'm finally seeing a live performance.

Living consciously...

If you would be a real seeker of truth, it is necessary at least once in your life to doubt all things. - Rene Descartes

At least once? No problem! I've been doing it every day this week. So, when the practice was to shift to a more "easeful way of listening to yourself", I guess I need to pay attention. It's easier for me to be critical - of myself, others, life, the dog, that noise... than to embrace an open-minded acceptance for everything. I've had lots of practice in being critical. In trying to be more accepting I feel detached and not as animated which makes me believe I'm not yet there and along comes the doubt. I've used "practice,practice, practice" as a mantra for years and it looks like I'll be able to hang on to it for a lifetime.

Great piece. Love the bright and busy against the calm and peaceful. It feels like excitement is bursting through.
