Office Politics: Top 7 Tips for Surviving Office PoliticsBy
Kevin Kearns
The race for the U.S. Presidency is finally over. Regardless of your political affiliation, you probably wish politics did not get so negative and dirty. Realistically, wishing for a clean presidential race and a little over $4.00 can buy you a non-fat soy, vanilla-mocha, triple-iced, latte. Wishing without action adds little value. If you want cleaner presidential politics, take action towards making it that way.Office politics also require you to be proactive. You must act in a manner that will bring about your desired change. These seven tips will help you move your organization in a more positive direction.

that would be cool if it happened to our office!

Don't Listen: La la la la, I can't hear you. If nobody listened to the junk that people spread around at work, the excitement of the junk would be lost. The junk spreaders w…
Im imagining the way it could have been last year talking to you on the computer while having the most beautiful view of Mt. Serendipachi...I feel I could fly over Whiskey Lake on the long beautiful 9000 ft plateau as if I was soaring on Google Earth. I see the lake all frozen because the temperature is 2500 ft colder...what is the difference in degrees? I'll have to look up that fact...Now I'm hearing coffee from my muse...never have I felt freer financially, emotionally, spiritually, and even physically and mentally to become part of this earth that recycles all over the planet and eventually the universe....more so am I connecting with the general conciousness....
We travel together in our mortal conciousness while taking up a speck of dust on life's expanding timeline in the narrow microcosm of the universe!
puff, puff, pass.... wow
It really is a cool feeling when only friends are together....we want to reach somthing...mcC

"As much as most of us wish we could exist in harmony with the people we encounter throughout our lives, there will always be individuals we dislike. Some simply rub us the wrong way while others strike us as deliberately unaware. We may judge others as too mean or abrasive for us to interact with them comfortably. Yet no person should be deemed a villain because their beliefs, opinions, mannerisms, and mode of being are not compatible with your own. You need not embrace the rough traits they have chosen to embody. There may be times in which the best course of action involves distancing yourself from someone you dislike. But circumstances may require that you spend time in the company of individuals who awaken your aversion. In such cases, you can ease your discomfort by showing your foe loving compassion while examining your feelings carefully"
It really is a cool feeling when only friends are together....we want to reach somthing....CrowMac and my muse are together....
it is frustrating when you cant get your point across or it sounds even your muse doesn't want to hear it...

Nicole kidman can play an evil woman so well…it was fascinating seeing the woman who conned this man into loving her…

we are enjoying our Christmas in Serendipachi watching all these movies and surfing the net while we both recover from chest is so nice to spend the holidays with someone who really loves you!
"the disasters and the grief... and yes... even the rage... is all directed to one purpose. To wake me up!? " I love the writing of Ted Roosevelt and Two Feathers! I felt that I have woken up in the last few years in regards to what is really important in life ... finally waking up and smelling the coffee!"was it the Buddha said when asked if he was a God? He said. "No, I am awake."Does that mean we sleep for the rest of eternity or?? and when we are alive we need to wake up and go for it during our "waking" hours??"..the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;"I love that quote from Teddy! He went after adventure all the time his brilliant career and he reminds me so much of how wonderful life can be when regardless of all your failures in life, you can still have success!...or just the happiness in the pursuit of success for somebody other than yourself; it brings on an abundance of intrinsic re…

Thank God for snow Days!

It is so nice to relax after a Monday in school and then get the great news that we can take it easy finally seeing the largest county closed all day. That is fantastic news. It's so exciting to see the gorgeous snow on the mountains in our backyard. My muse is sleeping recovering a bout of bronchitis while I nurse her back to health while chatting with you on the net.
My renters are roughing it. Most of OKC has lost it's power due to ice storms. I'm happy that they still can get gas through the fireplace to warm up the whole living room. It is a nice warm feeling that that a family is being taken care of at a very reduced rate. They are doing so much on the place where the previous tenant neglected and let my poor place fall apart. I wasn't helping of course while the roof and bathrooms continued to . Now everything is in the garage from my previous life in the Okie Zone.
"The mountains, I become part of it.
The herbs, the fir tree, I become part of it.
The morning mists, the clouds, the gathering waters,I become part of it.
The wilderness, the dew drops, the pollen...I become part of it. "

Navaho Song found in a favorite blog!

A picture is worth a thousand words but this Navaho poetry comes close.I feel this way so much more than I have ever before in this Native American commmunity.

I feel part of this land more and more. It has become my home before I find home again in the Land of Oz..
I am putting off my own enjoyment with the love of my life ( I hope, since my heart has been broken so many time. My muse looks at me in her red riding hood attire or maybe a xmas elf.
"they are my xmas pjs honey!"
responding to my rambling eloquence in her very innocent and young sounding voice. Sometimes I forget how young her voice sounds on the cell phone almost like a child. She perks up my day when i hear her voice because I know she loves me with he…
I need to discipline myself to chat on here for at least 5 minutes a dream come true about finally connecting the internet universe has come into the comfort and safety of my own home in my village ...I feel that slowly things are happening in the right way finan, cially and in my career...Like I said to someone in the past, I will self actualize by the time Im 54!
This week was the best week of my teaching career and confidence..Finally having my own two half hour math classes instead of just assisting teachers and students ,,although I enjoy teaching math to all the students. Im talking to more students everyday now than any other teacher from having only a couple of students in a self contained classroom.. I am walking tall knowing now how I am connecting with so many children especially in my after school clubs I've created!
Im so excited about creating the drama club and how the students are taking ownership in the program..
Im excited about seeing how a student in spe…

Driving to Amadillo by morning…the fate of my paintings and our family heirlooms worry me while we are heading again towards Arkansas to see A’s parents; again! I am frustrated at our own prograsstination to finally take off on our trips… now she is smiling at me, asking me
“Are you gonna sell a billion copies of your book?“
I guess I’m having to pay her truck payment….she’s not making enough substituting to pay for the outrageous rates also!

I set down the lap top almost at the state of limbo where one drifts off to other realities and we are shocked into vigilance when the mulitcolored lights flash behind us... She drives her jeep into the middle grassy median while trucks zoom by in their high 70 almost swiping us into oblivion...the highway patrolman runs up to our vehicle while I take the last swig of any evidence of brew overly paranoid over the previous incident. Of course I had been smokin ...The worst thoughts run through my mind... another night in the sl…
I often think of how easy it could have happened…I need to start writing to you at least everyday for a few minutes…then I can transfer it
Watching Nicole kidman going into the soul of an emotionally disturbed and vulnerable woman..then I see the parallels with my muse…how she was so depressed and then I brought her out of it..and sensing her on the upward swing..she sees the vision of what I am going through…I feel is another chance to have a child…I make love to her innocence and naïve vulnerability …but then a few drinks sometimes seems to unleash her demons~
I get excited about seeing all of the talent and visions that we could have in our future~!
I then wonder about our future together…
She sees all of what he see!
I then wonder about the soul of the witch…what issues are going over in her mind??
She’s taking care of her kids…and struggling with her health…she seems to reach me now in this moment…more so with an energy…
Now Im watching this the man denying his black ancestry!!
The suspe…
Never have wonderful things seem to fall into place for me and now us!
Found some very solid renters who will actually work on the place..
I am excited about the mother that is wanting to help her family move into a home before they are forced to move out of apartments that have been totally abandoned by management!
So now they have paid cash up front and a check to make up for their sweat equity...I'm sure they will fall in love with my home as many others have will be so wonderful to view the results of their efforts!
I'm thinking that the home will be paid off by the end of the year..
School is starting again after a much needed fall break! The weather could not have been better in our trek through the heartlands of the US!
It is so cool sharing your life with a new adventurous soul! It get's expensive going long distances with the gas and motels!
It was really cool meeting my muse's hillbilly family...actually I was pleasantly surprised with her parents. The Dad used be a very competitive tri-athlete and the Mom teaches HS math...
It is such a wonderful breath of fresh air to meet a young lady without the issues of dysfunctional families as a background''

I wonder how some of my ex gfs would have ended up if they came from functional families...Maybe we would already be parents since those types of ladies are far and few between...especially the older one looks in the market of availability..

"There is something about you... something within you that is miraculous and special. What is it? How do you nurture it? How do you keep it safe?" ( from "question of the day")

What I meant to say earlier so as not to upset any readers for not answering the question correctly:
I believe that many of us can have something miraculous and special to give to the world if we understand our strengths and weaknesses...
We can nurture the wonderful gift of giving when we see the results of our gifts....
I keep it safe when regardless of what others say I will walk tall as I know my students will when they feel good about what talents they have discovered within themselves!
History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.

I'm here at a hotel with internet access and with my wonderful muse as we travel across this "great state or what" (when they advertise for this state on the news)

I'm about to see her family in the hillbilly state of Arkansas...
I am having so much fun in a mild Hunter S. Thompson philosophy(?)
My house is falling apart and it has rain spots on the ceiling from all the rain leaking through the roof!...The renter vacated my place owing a month's rent and the electricity still going!
The weather feels like Indian Summer on our trek taking care of business and city stickers left on the garage door telling me to mow the jungle of a lawn or get rid of garbage...(a friend comes over with his pal to help me move the desk from the side to more garbajjj in to the garage)..…
It's great to be back in school , sort of...
It is amazing how summer has flown by so fast!
I'm wanting to write more but the bug has not captured my desire to write..
At least I can say hello to everyone

now I've escaped to Serendipachi again and all the worries of reality

We are still at war and Bush is still in office but at least his "brain" is gone!

I joyously accept my beautiful home away from home on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the world, the Gold Coast.

The desires of my heart are fulfilled when I swim and surf in the crytal blue waters of the Pacific.

I'm planning on going there for the winter break for 2-3 weeks..I'll have to find someone to take care of my darling Buffy so maybe I can find someone that will be staying here during the xmas break...they can put her inside my home in Serendipachi while I'm gone...

It was sure nice having an escape from reality travelling with my canine soulmate all around the northwest part of this …
Im having the greatest time of my life for a very long while. I'm having a wonderful time travelling with Dad's old Infinity...sometimes it seems like it's going to konk out but she hangs in there...We'll be heading to Glacier National Park and then to Banff Canada and Vancouver, BC...and then to the downtown section where herb is legal!


Backwards Voodoo!

Thankyou Michaelle Christchurch, for helping me to be happier than I have been in a long while!

Heading out to Yosemite and maybe wine country in the great America! far the voodo curse must have had an opposite effect! Maybe 2 negatives make a positive or Mom's hand knit sweater serves as a protective talisman to turn your negative energy into the most positive energy in a very long while! This will be the best way to overcome the curse that I've been under since 911! !

The 2007 - 14th running of the Hardrock 100 Endurance Run will start at 0600 July 13th and end at 0600 July 15th, 2007 in Silverton, Colorado. The ’07 course will be a 100 mile COUNTER-CLOCKWISE loop through the back country of the San Juan Mountains in beautiful southwestern Colorado. The Hardrock 100 connects or passes near the old mining towns of Silverton, Lake City, Ouray, Telluride and Ophir. With a total elevation gain of approximately 33,000' and an average elevation at near tree line of 11,186', the Hardrock 100 peaks out at over 14,000’ on Handles Peak, one of Colorado’s 14’ers.

I am sitting here in the gym of the highschool where this amazing race started at 6am (I slept in of course). I've made some friends with some of the 130 runners are staying here at this very nice hostel with a very warm motherly innkeeper that makes us feel at home while I deal with t…
War is good for the carpet baggers, the oil companies,other greedy corporations , and the military industrial complex that are raping the people of Iraq so that obese westerners can have their big trucks and SUVS because they are too lazy to walk or ride a bike!
The Bush family is enjoying the profits from war as they have for several generations!

right now I'm at my favorite pub, the Miner's union where you can get $2 amber bock beers...of course it doesnt compare to the .75 cent beers at the Buzzard Beach!
My body is saying to me to get more exercise and play more (even it's only with my canine soul mate)...
watching Buffy running in and out of the cold Animas River high up in the Rockies, just for the sake of exercise and play, made me realize how all animals, especially humans, pent up all day just getting fat, need the chance to play (exercise)...
We should observe animals more often instead of just listening to the mores of society and the fast food mcdonaldiZation of this country...

watch how dogs naturally take care of their bodies..
Their own natural instincts know far more than us on how our bodies communicate with us!

I wanted to thank God for this beautiful day in the mountains and then seeing the cleansing moonsoon rains come down and cool everything so that I actually have to put my mother's hand knit sweater on!

so this rambling doesn't make sense, M?

In dem Augenblick als ich gerade weg von der Hitze bleiben möchte. Die Berge sind kühl, wenn Sie nah an 10.000 Fuß erhalten. Ich kam gerade in Silverton an und betete sofort in des Str. Patricks der Kirche. Sie hatte übereinstimmend den Namen meines Lieblingsjesuitlehrers in der High School auf einem befleckten Glasfenster, Vater O'Malley. Ich glaubte sofort einer Freigabe, besonders als ich die wundervolle Kathedrale des felsigen Moutains draußen sah!
I go around the corner with my soulmate and see the almost endless view of the Rockies against the red sky from a setting sun and I hear Neville singing Amazing Grace. It was at that point that I really wanted to believe in heaven where hatred, fear, animosity, jealousy don't exist..There is only love...It made me realize how much that I have to enjoy every moment..

I have only a few more days of good health and vigor before the new moon... the worst could happen .....someone's gonna put a curse on me and if that don't work then Joe Pete will break my legs or I will mistakenly eat Mema Valetti's poison Manicotti.

I'm gonna have to find the catholic church in Durango and pray for my salvation.

"Chills run up and down my spine for the new moon!"

Some one wants to cause me harm...
Is that news?

considering all the hatemail from rednecks and Bushistas having a few too many in bars and starting fights since they cannot argue well, rednecks very often get physical...What do I say to them?
"Take a number!"

One xgirlfriend has a father connected with the Mafia and is threatening to do voodoo on me !
She wouldnt talk to him for 1o years and wrote how her Dad wanted the father of her 2nd child to be in cement boots along with Jimmy Hoffa references....And we wonder how a lady could grow up to be emotionally stable with a crook for a Dad and an emotionally abusive mother?
It's understandable that broken homes cause years of issues for the children and tend to get mixed up only in abusive relationships.

She has made references to Italian names and beating heads for a living...

So if anything happens to me it's probably more likely the Cosa Nostra connections rather than her voodoo... Maybe her connections could even reach me …
It is so hard for me to pack and move but when I'm finally on the road again...the sadness of immobilization leaves me...

I have a feeling some exgfs have been reading this blog because of the fan mail...

Now Buffy and I might check out the alien festival but I swear that I have dated women that are as strange as the aliens that I have only heard about...

It's nice to get loving messages from Muffy... I guess her, Charles and Buffy have been some of my few friends...But it was great to chat with DR. Thomas, my part Native American friend and unofficial mentor!
Chills run up and down my spine for the new moon! The loony witch will put a spell on a weird pair of grey socks with green stripes that I forgot that I had...I always felt that this woman was never into black magic but listen to her hatred:

This is where Voo Doo comes in handy. I don't ever use it though, unless there is just no other alternative. For example, I once used spellwork to cause a woman who was abusing her child to have severe stomach pain any time she went to beat the child. Thank God that situation got rectified. On the next new moon, I will be getting rid of something else that's been bothering me, and it used to own a pair of grey socks with green stripes that are going to be key in my spellwork. It will be great fun, and make me feel a total release, the same as I did when I burned every lie that was written on paper to me. And, it works. My keen bullshit detector is working just fine.....the little abused boy went to a safe home, and hopefully soon I wi…
What Is Bipolar Disorder? Bipolar disorder, formerly called manic-depressive illness, is a condition that affects more than two million Americans. People who have this illness tend to experience extreme mood swings, along with other specific symptoms and behaviors. These mood swings or "episodes" can take three forms: manic episodes, depressive episodes, or "mixed" episodes.
The symptoms of a manic episode often include elevated mood (feeling extremely happy), being extremely irritable and anxious, talking too fast and too much, and having an unusual increase in energy and a reduced need for sleep.

there was one emotionally disturbed lady I dated who had the above episodes..she kept repeating how she was extremely happy and then went through very depressed periods.she became extremely irritated and anxious when her parents were coming to stay almost as if she was preparing for a final exam. The house had to be spotless so she sent me off to teach her 9 year old son t…
"By not passing judgment on anyone, and instead sending hope for their healing, we may create something positive out of a difficult situation. We can then release it, since dwelling on it can cause an energetic drain in our system, causing us to really only hurt ourselves. When we can release our hold on negative events and interactions, we leave it in the hands of a wise universe to work out the best solution for all involved. "

Fun with Raphael and Erowyn

I'm extremely passionate about finding my niche where I can really soar.
I'm passionate about finding
my Utopian Shangri La
(Raphael says that you have to realize your Shangri La by living in the now..It's easy for him in his beautiful place)
I'm passionate about doing something really great and making a movie/documentary/book about it..
Im not passionate about my procrastination...its the side of myself that I detest.
Most think that I have a tendency to get obsessed (OCD)about some projects..

I often just smile at them and look forward to when the projects are done..I consider that the best revenge to all the naysayers!

That is what drives me and motivates me instead of just staying in bed depressed about all the things I should have already done in this extremely short life.

So here I am again in my home away from home...I get used to a place and it's cool to see the same familiar streets except that it has the warm ambience of mid-summer..
the anxiety of summer accelerating without doing anything is wearing off as soon as I take a road trip and hang out for a night smuggling Buffy in the "Bates Motel" in the middle of Gallup next to some of the very limited dives ... Maybe they could call these places "Stumble Inn's"...The inn keeper saw me on the hotel camera taking my blonde bitch for a walk...She was smiling when she asked me if that was me sneaking my dog out for a walk (she has had some loose poop since changing over to the high quality dog food just before the trip...a mistake but I had run out of the other)...The inn keeper was also 50 and made me feel better about my reflection in the mirror doesn't look too bad for the flip side of the half century...

"Armadillo by Morning" I I'm taking my time heading back west to take care of business with my school, my abode and my decisions for next year when I turn in the contract.
The hotel here in Amarillo has internet access in the lobby and not in the room like it was supposed to have, so I'm delaying my trip so I can chat with you!

I still have the anxiety but then I let the fuck it attitude takes care of it... I imagine just hanging out in my place on the beach for a few weeks with a little Ganja and some Aussie neighbors!
"She'll be right mate! Pass me a pint of Tooheys! No worries Mate, look at the gorgeous sun rise! It's my beach!"

It will nice to know that I will have some funds in both lands to use in my very modest lifestyle!

I have felt that way …
still vegetating in the okie zone before I head west again and make the decision to work in the land of enchantment at least one more year....
It's almost surreal the being here again in the same locations but so many changes...visiting the old Haunts...I went to Mikes in Oklahoma City...again after being personally attacked there 3 years ago by one of their customer..another young jerk who spent time in prison bullies me for no reason...amazing..but when it was their fault and I warned the security about his continual harassment. They did nothing until he physically attacked me.

I have been told that Mike's in Oklahoma City is still a very violent bar with fights every weekend. I will write a letter to Daily Oklahoman (disappointment) about the violence in clubs.
They let me buy a pitcher of beer until the fairy bartender and old lady that remembered me decided I had to go ..

What am I thankful for?I am lucky to have finally found a very fulfilling job and be financially secure. I have had very loving nurturing parents that were always there for me. They took me around the world and were dedicated to my education.I had a strong nuclear family with my parents always together. They taught me to exercise and always eat healthy. I was very fortunate to have had a wife who loved me with all of her heart and it made me realize that only the good die young. I am happy to realize what true love was instead of just a facade and getting used.

"I hope this doesn't qualify as babble to you?

The surrogate children that I teach love chess. The 300$ after taxes, that I earn for coaching the whole year, I sink totally into the program since there are no funds. I asked the woodshop class to make giant chess pieces for outdoor chess with the lumber and paint I bought. I offer an outlet for students twice a week in my classroom that might be otherwise be getting into trouble. They painted a 100 sq ft yard chess board with the school colors and beautiful indigenous wildlife in the surrounding border of the cement chess board. The biggest complaint about the school is the ugly grey cement buildings. Now there is a beautiful board in the center with the "cougar pride" mural right behind it.

We have played chess outside a few times and hope to have some human chess next year if I decide to go back.I would have loved to have this opportunity as a child especially if there was nothing but poverty in my home life living in a shack with no heat.

I give time and money to my kids…

Back to the Okie Zone...its weird the way 2 years have passed so suddenly...Im at least excited about seeing my old neighbors ..My house has so much work to put on it...
Im still waiting to see the reaction from everyone about my large eagle tatoo on my arm..I impulsively had it done with an experience native artist on the Rez. It was so beautiful...Im trying to tune into art so much more since the arl class did their wildlife on the boarders of our chessboard.. had a good cry with one of the secretaries about the whole ..she remarked how so many don't want the chess to succeed because they are jealous..
i knew that but to hear it from her made my day and I was getting all verklempt about how my chess players are walking tall. My four best players are special ed and they have proved to themselves and everyone how smart they are!

"Everyone is looking for a miracle outside rather than looking at the power within"

A major weight has been lifted...the judge said at the end of the day that he would have to recuse the lawyer was a very sharp individual that I would find out at the end of the day loved playing chess in law school. I did not realize that my teaching would be the ace in the hole. He must have known that the judge was a teacher too so he was there is a very good chance that the case will be dismissed...I had a great lesson in the legal system..I became familiar with the cities' Navaho officer went to the same school...
The judge realized how punitive the system could be and that the governor was on a vendetta to prove a point....the lawyers were much more experienced than the young prosecutor

Now I can go to Oz...I guess the joy of losing the pain hasn't sunk in yet..unfortunately, the travel place had been closed for a year which was about the same time I booked the flight with her..I want to revel but Im tired and of course emotionally drai…
its really good to chat with you!!...even though the court date is tomorrow ...I suddenly have such a good feeling especially having the contract in hand ...and having a superlative day teaching chess...
the kids were giving me a hard time and they knew that they were getting on my nerves..they dont respect me as they are with other adults..
then dealing with the last politics of the schoool..I just wanted to stay out of it and Jesus planning for his coup de tat of the sped department... and then relaying the message to the Borg
but overall, I felt that I had a victory of so many kids involved in and engaged outside in this one game of chess while bantering with adults the way uppity adolescents love to banter while Im somewhat relaxed outside in my shorts , trying not to think of the impending trial!

Now there is an air of summer relief that we are through all of it...
