The Daily Mess Before We Think

Utilizing the strength of what feeds your imagination. The stuff that happens before you think. Life is a series of continuations. Something has to unfold before thoughts break free inside of you and me. Learning to trust instinct. Research shows our brains make up their minds ten seconds before we become aware it. That's where I want to be. To be aware before ink stains the page. Reaching areas of thought before the rest of me invites judgement. Where do thoughts go wrong? Why does another...

Pretty New World

May 25, 2022 I’m clearly not the only one who hopes to one day wake up and see a pretty world again. What would it look like? Sound like? Smell like?

The Daily Mess Not Sure

I talk a lot about the positives that arrive from being a great listener. What we've never really shared are the negatives that come with being a great listener. Toxic people like great listeners. Toxic people get very upset when great listeners have been weakened and are unable to serve. Two words fell from my writing instrument this morning. Not sure. Not in tune with the thought. Not sure. A signal of not being prepared. Not sure. Unaware. Not in agreement with. It's like standing on a...

The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 295

May 24, 2022 A huge change is coming to the forest. Within a 48 hour period we’re going to move from early winter 70’s to late night 20’s. The mind body and soul have natural ways of embracing the constant edge of unpredictable outcomes. No matter how many years of experience we carry, the natural disturbance plays with the human heart. It generates challenges. Learning to see the forest for what it is teaches us to move through our seasons. Understanding the impact of sudden disturbances...


Danielle J Lindeman Releases The Book True Story What Reality TV Says About Us

What do we see when we watch reality television? In True Story: What Reality TV Says About Us, the sociologist and TV-lover Danielle J. Lindemann takes a long, hard look in the "funhouse mirror" of this genre.

Reality TV, Lindemann argues, uniquely reflects our everyday experiences and social topography...


The Daily Mess Hurt Then Ache

I must be getting old. I don't get disappointed with myself for wanting to get an additional thirty minutes of sleep. Yet I'm not having dinner at 4:30 in the afternoon. Nor am I burping and farting in public and acting like it didn't happen. We do say things that older people get away with. It's some unknown rule that states the elders say bad stuff and it's easily written off out of respect. Mom and Dad always talked about their legs, back and arms hurting. What they never spoke about was...

Stream Thinking Habit Versus Ritual

Habit versus ritual. Are they the same? A ritual is something done to prepare for action. While a habit is something done repeatedly for the purpose of performing the action itself. Preparing for action taking on the purpose of performing the action. The words prepare and perform are huge in my life. I don't perform until I've prepared. Away from broadcasting it's no so different. Every Sunday I prepare for my spiritual studies by clearing the way to be present. The performance is based on...
