Today I have dealt with "bipolar" emotions - although I had my sort of "normal" daily things to do, the total of these things wasn't great, and I felt, as I have been feeling more and more over the last few months, that I have been slipping into something like a very deep depression. HOWEVER, … Continue reading A Sense of Purpose
Terrace House Wisdom
I have been "watching" (my version of "watching" is more like half-listening to while doing other things) the Netflix / Japanese "reality show" "Terrace House" and I just came across some wisdom that I suppose I had overlooked while halfheartedly "watching" / listening to the show. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this … Continue reading Terrace House Wisdom
Quote of TODAY!
I have been watching quite a few YouTube videos recently (perhaps I will be making a comeback myself ...) and I have seen quite a few advertisements for the various "Masterclasses" being offered. The one that caught my attention today was a "writing" "Masterclass" from / with Joyce Carol Oates in which she says - … Continue reading Quote of TODAY!
The Idea of Certain Ideas
I have recently started thinking about the ideas behind certain "ideas" or concepts we have; I have been thinking about them culturally (that is, how the ideas of things seem to exist across cultures and through extremely different languages and although there might be slightly different connotations to these basic ideas, the inherent "concepts" are … Continue reading The Idea of Certain Ideas
Wednesday Wisdom – “Righting Your Heart”
I have been sort of watching (in my "watching way" of leaving shows on while I am doing other things) this Netflix Anime called ピアノの森. It's a little goofy (the attempts at getting the "animation" of piano playing is VERY computerized, if that is a "proper" description), but there was just an interesting line that … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom – “Righting Your Heart”
The Wisdom of … “Gossip Girl?!?!?”
Who ever would have thought I would be quoting "Gossip Girl?!" But here I am and here it is - something to think about in many contexts - "It's not the secrets that cause the problems; it's the assumptions that people make about them." This doesn't apply just to "secrets;" it applies to relationships we … Continue reading The Wisdom of … “Gossip Girl?!?!?”
Wednesday Wisdom Part 2!
I just wanted to share the "wisdom" given to me by the landlady at my first "bad" apartment in this most recent run of "bad apartments." The landlady was amazing and I still think whatever she was paid could not have been enough to manage the apartment complex she did manage. At any rate, when … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom Part 2!
Sunday Sayings – TIME
I have compiled a fairly "extensive" list of my personal "sayings" - things I have thought about and written down as well as phrases that have organically arisen from intense discussions over matters of "life." I would really like to get a book of them out (to be continued ...), but I thought this would … Continue reading Sunday Sayings – TIME
I realize it is not Wednesday but I was having a "root canal" (really "root canal treatment") this Wednesday so I thought it would post it here now - I know I am likely to come up with something else for next week! At any rate, it does all tie together - I was talking … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom
