Drunk With Power

To The Apples Of My Eye:

My dearest faithful followers,

I am here today groveling before you, begging for your forgiveness. I must offer my sincere apologies and show my deepest remorse for my misdeeds and any mistreatment. I don’t own you, and I never have. You are individuals and you are my companions, not my slaves.

Sometimes I forget that this is a family, not a tyranny. I did not gain this power through great deeds or victories, I don’t even deserve it.  I have no right to oppress you and ignore each of your individual interests. I don’t have the liberty to inflict pain in any form. I asked for you. You are my gifts, not my soldiers. You aren’t obligated to heed to my every command or execute my every decree.

I am not authorized to punish you with painful scoldings or harsh criticism. I must use words to express my wishes, and I must always remember that requests can only be asked, not commanded. I can’t enforce on you senseless demands, and I can’t penalize you for when you don’t please me. You can’t suffer because of who you are. Read the rest of this entry

Thank you SOPA, thanks for nothing!

I have two new fascinations; clouds, and driving on the wrong side of the road. I am not sure which came first though. Perhaps it was from my frequent daydreams, while driving, that made me drift from my lane and check out the clouds that were suddenly noticeable above my wandering gaze. Or possibly just because I am constantly staring in fascination at the magnificent, plush clouds that I have been rolling astray. I desperately want to climb up there and curl up in the heavenly silky, down floating cushions, and maybe reach out a few times to take little licks of the sticky and sweet spun air. (Wow, I must be tired…) Either way, I can’t stop doing either. Read the rest of this entry

Time Flies

Remember the times when days took days, hours took hours, and minutes took minutes? Well it seems that as the years went by, all of what we were used to suddenly changed significantly. Generally, time flies when you are having fun, when you are too busy, or when you are aging and every precious minute seems like it is not enough. Those were always reasons that I was aware of until we got a new added contribution to the list; technology. Our modern, fast-paced society has changed our lives dramatically and there is no going back.

I had planned a week packed with hopeful accomplishments and before I got anything done, it was Thursday. I am not even sure how it happened. I did not spend a lot of time on the computer and I did not do any intense house cleanups. So what did I do? How did I not manage to step foot into my art room that I so elegantly arranged? It is beyond me… Read the rest of this entry

Clouded With Thoughts on Speed

New Year’s Resolutions attempts have begun. I opened the yoga mat!

That’s as much as I did
That’s as far as I went
The mat is now opened
100 percent!

It was one small step for my hands,  one giant leap for me.

I am quite restless today and my brain is wired. When I have days like this, I either accomplish a lot, talk a lot, rhyme a lot more, or achieve nothing at all. So today I will present some pictures of the stormy clouds and silently cry over all the good shots I am seeing from my window at the moment and missing. It’s cold, I can’t get up to take any more pictures. Lazy and fidgety at the same time, how does that even work? (sigh) Read the rest of this entry
