it is amazing about all these disasters that happen in this state..
first with my common law girlfriend passing away after Mom passes away
and then Murrah bombing
and then 911
Hurricane Sandy
and mother nature bangs against Moore won more time...
my wife wore my sooner shirt the day before it happened and then I wore it to keep warm..
she looked at the weather channel the same day it was happening with no clue
that something was in the air...
what is a 6th sense??
ive lost the internet at home and so now I have to get a few free minutes at the Oasis
overpowered by all the delicatessens and coffee shops surrounding me before the twilight on the coast which  I treasure so much!!

May 21, 2013Focus on the Possible
Sagittarius Daily Horoscope

Your hopeful nature about the success of your future plans could give you additional encouragement today. Having an upbeat outlook might be a way for you to visualize everything that you want out of life and could in turn help you to manifest your dreams. Should you at anytime find that doubt or negative thoughts creep into your positive attitude during the day today, you can make a list of the things that are truly important to you in the future and place it somewhere that will always catch your eye. As you look at this list you might create a mental picture about how you would like your life to be, using this picture to make it easier for you to remain focused on your goals. You might find that having a trigger such as this could keep your thoughts optimistic and could eliminate any misgivings that may arise. 

 Keeping our thoughts focused on what we are able to achieve creates an energetic space where we will be more likely to reach our goals. Even though doubts are a normal part of life—for we never know what the future will bring—if we let ourselves give into them our attention will be drawn away from what we really want. Concentrating on what is possible today, however, will make you more likely to act in a way that will give you confidence, encouraging you to take the steps needed to make your future dreams a reality.

things are going well if I just go one step at a time!

its easy to get upset with people, events and maybe especially with your own mistakes..
ive made choices that many folks wouldn't do, but I hope that some of them have been good... coming to Oz and seeing the birth of our Aussie son here on the Coast I still feel was my best choice... if we can take just one step at a time like a great chess match we will reach the 8th rank and be anybody we want..

I wonder about the lack of transparency at the club with so many things at the club.. and how ridiculous for them to suddenly keep a secret with the results of the club championship... ok.."its not like the sale of a sheep station" but to the average old athlete who appreciates a medal at his own club if its not within his realm to get a medal at the Aussies! One gets yelled at or ridiculed if they question anything at the club and then perhaps they are labeled as a trouble maker or not acting like a member of the club.
I love the concept of the surf club... there is always politics wherever you go, whether it's tohatchi or Mermaid Beach

thinking more and more about figuring out a plan to put my book together.. 1.. the ocean and beach is the petri dish to this creation
2. discipline myself to a couple hours a day of writing
3. strong prayers to the sun each morning and a large cup of coffee, sunglasses and Dad's green bath robe, gaining inspiration each morning from the rip where we buried the ashes of our parents...
4. a strong swim past the waves and then body surf... get my heart rate up and feel alive...
5. another strong cup of coffee while family goes for a walk while I furiously write the story of how this species that I met in the ocean evolved...
6. take at least one picture of the day before its gone
7. take a step towards living permanently in Oz...

I know this is facebook and all the connotations with this way of communicating.. I think I have a select group of friends somewhere off in cyberworld and see how their daily lives are and cant help but compare to my own life and my family's life..
im excited about a lot of things and could easily be overwhelmed  with the challenges of living on the coast, but approaching like a surf race has become my spiritual(?) motto.. there are a lot of things appearing on the verge of an upward state of being...
becoming a self actualized surfer/dad/beach bum just on the verge of discovering a rare species of hominid that escaped to the sea between the migrations of Indians to the Americas and the indigenous Australocromagnons that came over the great land mass and canoes....

May 1, 2013Inquisitive Explorations
Sagittarius Daily Horoscope

You may be probing others today for the truth that lies behind their opinions. This may be because of your quest for a deeper understanding of what makes people tick. Since it is interesting and fun to question and investigate what interests you further, you might find that this a perfect opportunity to not only get at the truth in your interactions but also use this as a chance to arrive at your own greater truth. You can, for example, think about what is fascinating about other people, using this as a catalyst for reflection to try to think about what may intrigue others about you. Being open to a more profound questioning of yourself today could make you seem much more open to others, which could make them more willing to divulge their ideas and feelings more candidly.

Our desire to comprehend the inner workings of other people often stems from our own need to understand ourselves. It can be easy to scrutinize someone else, asking them to reveal what is going on inside of them. While this might be interesting for us, it is only truly an exercise in exploration if we use it as a chance to also look within ourselves. When we do this, we create a bond of trust that will foster a more authentic form of communication with others. Looking within yourself first will make it easier for you to use your curiosity as a chance for greater growth and understanding today.
