The Daily Mess Daily Choice

5/20/2022
May 20, 2022 I’m sure. Not a good place. Those moments when you still take a leap. Our heart might fear but instinct says to do it anyway. A coworker asked about my upbeat attitude. I honestly replied, “Is that what you really see?” What they weren’t experiencing was the horrid pain from a torn Achilles tendon. How was this guy with extremely long hair still up beat in ways that helped others find their own happiness through laughter? Living the Black Belt Path. Winning is a choice. Sure, I...

Gary Lennon From The Documentary Castro's Spies

5/20/2022
Castro's Spies tells the largely unknown story of an unofficial Cuban civil war fought for decades across the Florida Straits. This Irish documentary is a fascinating narrative of intrigue, intelligence and espionage, told in first-hand testimony from those that lived this remarkable story; from the spies and their wives, to the groups they infiltrated in the U.S. and the law enforcement agencies that would eventually dismantle their spy cell. The film features real FBI surveillance footage...

De Frag Episode Eighteen Hidden Speak

5/20/2022

The Daily Mess Seeds Of Music

5/19/2022
May 19, 2022 The Battle Hymn of the Republic is playing inside my head. I’m not sure why. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored. I stop in moments like this. Memories of September 11, 2001. It’s well documented in my daily writing. While doing so, I was humming Amazing Grace. In the moments after writing the planes hit the towers. When music enters your head and heart look up the lyrics. Get into what...

Nobility And Humility

5/19/2022
Here we are! Right here! But where is here? Planting your thoughts is a daily exercise that requires less nobility and more humility. I recently read a story about how American's refuse to let the high prices of food and fuel to get in the way of how they're living. People aren't stopping! American nobility is shouting out, "How dare you do this to me!" Humility is humbleness. A can of Ravioli versus Chic Fil A. Buying at Goodwill or Nordstrom. When the Achilles tendon of this nation breaks...

The Daily Mess The Numbers

5/18/2022
May 18, 2022 I’ve been to the professionals! There’s a real injury. Fixing it is going to be the greater challenge. You can’t ignore your Achilles tendon. My average day is 13 to 15,000 steps. The app claims I’ve walked 2,864,037 steps. That’s 1,350 miles. It seems so small! Like my daily writing. 28 years sounds like longtime until you physically see the number of books that’ve been used. Not as many as you’d think. Has our view of larger than life changed? Look at what we do on social...

Johnnie Christmas Releases The Book Swim Team

5/18/2022
Learning to swim is a very serious issue in the Black community. Longstanding issues of race and class have meant that pools are either not present in Black communities or are poorly maintained. Parents who can’t swim are less likely to have children who can swim or encourage their children to learn. Johnnie’s inspiration for SWIM TEAM was to encourage young African American children to get in the pool and learn to swim. In SWIM TEAM, a splashy, contemporary middle grade graphic novel from...

The Daily Mess Blocked In

5/17/2022
May 17, 2022 That feeling of being blocked in. Nowhere to turn. Invisible walls that keep moving inward. Your mind wants to collapse. Your sky carries no color. The ideas are almost nothing which makes writing or creating a greater challenge. The choice is to call it out. Writing about that feeling of being blocked. Get in its face. The edge of the universe. Darkness meeting light. Sight with no sound. Only the voices in your head. If they could be heard outside the mind there would have to...

The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 294

5/17/2022
Garrick is one. He finds great joy in pointing at the black bear statue in my forest. On Christmas Eve I placed a black bear statue on his side of the forest. I didn't want to tell him where to locate it. That's part of the excitement of life. Locating things that others have put on your path and not telling you about it until your heart and eyes find it. The same is true about conversations. Just like the bear in the forest people endlessly say things that go unnoticed. The moment you...

Ira Shapiro Releases The Book The Betayal

5/17/2022
The Founding Fathers gave the U.S. Senate many functions, but it had one fundamental responsibility—its raison d’etre: to provide the check against a dangerous president who threatened our democracy. Two hundred and thirty years later, when Donald Trump, a potential authoritarian, finally reached the White House, the Senate should have served as both America’s first and last lines of defense. Instead, we had the nightmare scenario: today’s Senate, reduced through a long period of decline to...

The Daily Mess Pain

May 16, 2022 What if the pain you feel isn’t your body but rather your knowledge? I openly admitted to a coworker how painful it is to get old. I’m constantly being introduced to a new area of ache. I blame a lot of it on my 15 years in martial arts. My Sensei always put focus on kicking the knee and lower. I didn’t understand. It didn’t look cool! He told us about our aging years claiming we wouldn’t have the strength or ability to kick above the waist. His vision was a seed to become...
