The Daily Mess HD Antenna TV
October 4, 2022 I feel like a 100 year old man. My H.D. TV antenna is hooked up to all these channels that feature programming from the 1950’s forward.

I’m doing old people things!” Of course the commercials are geared toward that generation. They’ve cut the cord not the need for entertainment. This antenna gives you fifty...

The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 310
The answers are always one moment of awareness away. Learning to trust it by way of accepting controlled chaos is a step that's going to invite change. But we don't like that sort of behavior. The elements around you are brilliant tools to use not only today but in years that have long forgotten about this moment. Accept yourself each new sun.

Stream Thinking What Is It And Why
Learning to trust your writing, creating and speaking without weighing it down with self judgement. When something is brought to the surface of your expressions it was created ten seconds before you made any type of move. Stream thinking is very much alive in those ten seconds before actions and reactions. Getting to it requires time and exercise.
