"Expanding Their VisionNine Ways To Help Others Awaken to Consciousness
1. Living by your values allows you to become a positive source of inspiration for others. Don’t hide – express yourself and embrace life without reservation. By simply being yourself, you can help the people in your life see how one person can make a difference by being a living example of consciousness.
I often think of what impact I might of made with the Navaho students at Utopachi...it was wonderful hearing a voice from our past when Ang and I chatted over the ocean to Mary...
she had become a wonderful friend and colleague to us both...she said how there was a vacuum at the school with no more after school activ…

Right now, my wife is feeding our beautiful child…I feel frustrated at this point…thinking about how many things we could be doing to have fun…
We need to at least rent a car and try traveling around the country a little bit..
It was good finally chatting with my brother, Ron. I know that he loves me even though he doesn’t really show.. I felt like I was ripped off by him the way he would take advantage of me in Monopoly or other games since I was a little child…
I felt jealous of how he would always have the friends and be successful at school thereby getting the praise and adoration of my parents…
I was the black sheep of the family always struggling in school and in relationships but oh well…
Now I have a loving wife who does not know much about domestic engineering so it challenges me to do all the things that I never had to do…I am a new father …I have dove into the pool of parenthood attempting to dog paddle in the new waves of fatherhood
I was just looking at one of the thousand pho…

Patient Persistence
Sagittarius Daily HoroscopeYou might find that you are determined to get your ideas across to others today in order to achieve your goals. If you find that you are extra-persistent today to the point that others begin to feel restless, you may want to work on developing patience. One way to create more patience is to take a deep breath and count to 10 before speaking. When you stop to count, you can become aware of your behavior when you speak to others. This could help make your interactions go more smoothly. Remembering to breathe and counting to 10 can also help you cultivate patience during those moments when you want to push people or situations forward before the time is ripe. Take the time to slow down and think before you act today, and the wellsprings of patience and understanding that you cultivate could help you achieve your objectives.

Pausing before speaking and taking the time to consider what we are about t…

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead!

wow!!...I hope that Conyers nails this pompous pig and the rest of the Bush henchmen ... will they get him as well as they did to all those crooks from Watergate??
Watching this pig grovel the way the bloke did in Deliverance wouldn't do justice for all the murders and bullshit that this criminal brain of Bush has masterminded!
No punishment would be better for this slimy bastard!
Saddam was executed....why not the same for causing a war of murders for innocent young soldiers and civilians!


""On Monday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) issued a subpoena to Karl Rove, requiring him to testify regarding his role in the Bush Administration's politicization of the Department of Justice, including the US Attorney firings and the prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman. The subpoena calls for Rove to appear at deposition on Monday, February 2, 2009.

Rove has previously refused to appear in response to a Judiciary Committee subpoena, claiming t…

The ADD Challenge!

MARRIAGE!!...
It could so easy for folks married to people with ADD to lose patience and get divorced when the going gets rough..
Imagine two people with this condition and shades of manic depression...
Could that be twice as bad??
It's easy to just say
"Fuck it! ...Another one bites the dust...
easy come...
easy go...
but suddenly there is a love child involved and that changes the whole story....
He has changed both of our lives...
Suddenly this young man came into our ADD world
and put us both into topsy turvy
and we have to figure out not the very easy solution of parenting in the 21st century...
but at least we are coping in paradise...
Can't beat taking a dip in the rejuvenating salt waters of the Pacific two times a day....
and then she gets distracted and forgets about the tomato soup, rice and pasta creation of her husband's on the stove!!

I am looking forward to seeing the inaguration and hopefully Oz TV will show a lot of it! From the Daily OM: "January 19, 2009 Evolution Through Exploration Purpose
Most living things belong to a particular soul group and are born knowing their purpose in life. An animal will spend its day foraging for food, taking care of itself and its young, and creating a home. No one tells an animal to do this, yet it instinctively knows how. Humans, for the most part, are not born consciously knowing what their purpose is. Purpose gives our life meaning. When you discover your purpose, you can live your life with intention and make choices that serve your objective for why you are here on the planet. Finding your purpose is not always easy. You must embrace life wholeheartedly, explore many different pathways, and allow yourself to grow. Your purpose is as unique as you are and will …

"Shedding Light On Ourselves" from the Daily OM
"In almost every case, we know what is best for us in our lives, from the relationships we create to the food we eat. Still, somewhat mysteriously, it is often difficult to make the right choices for ourselves. We find ourselves hanging out with someone who leaves us feeling drained or choosing to eat fast food over a salad. We go through phases where we stop doing yoga or taking vitamins, even though we feel so much better when we do. Often we have no idea why we continue to make the less enlightened choice, but it is important that we inquire into ourselves to find out. When we choose that which is not best for us, the truth can be that there is a deep seated part of us that does not want to heal. We may say it’s because we don’t have the time or the energy or the resources, but the real truth is that when we don’t take care of ourselves we are falling prey to self-sabotage. Self-sabotage happens unconsciously, which is w…

Ang just went shopping with the bub... I'm happy she still has some of her tax refund check TV is showing the "remake of Barrack" Monday night at 9:50 (here is my other gf;) just kidding... she won't tell me how much she spent on her hair...but's that's cool...I'm so happy she still hasn't spent all of her hard earned tax refund$$ and can have a good hair day!!
I haven't had to worry about hair or lack of it on my head for over 3 decades!! I guess that's like having a bad hair day for more than half my life???
It seems like baldness is the one disability that anybody can pick on.... "Look, Ma. He has zero hair!"lol



but seriously folks , we all have to tighten our belts with us in the worst depression since Okies left the Okie Zone in the "Grapes of Wrath" 30's! as beach bums we are making the least carbon imprint
for any small family in the western world(??)....cept my wife takes showers too long..;)

I dunno...I just love these images...this camera has been the best present to myself....capturing moments of time with a picture...
it's worth a thousand words......coming to Oz has brought back so many childhood moments of happiness...
we hope to see this happiness when he laughs...
we see him develop a personality with everyday..
There are so many topics to discuss with you...and yet sometimes I feel so shy to come up with the words...
when really this blog is for myself and hopefully let others tune into my life??
