Is there No Escape???

My dreams are having a hard time differentiating reality and fantasy. Yes, I know, having studied sleepy time dreams of ride the rainbow elephants across possible planes of existence, their meaning, REM sleep patterns, out of body experiences, etc., I am aware we often are using our dreams to work though the challenges of unreal […]

Another Day – Another Coffee Shop

I’m sitting, drinking a loaded decaf coffee (almond milk and brown sugar – gawd I am decadent) at a round table for four at the Flightpath Coffee Shop. While is most definitely not Quacks, It is a decent coffee and snack place on Duval here in Austin. I have been joined by a woman who […]

Awww, grow up already! Shall we?!?!

Okay everybody. Don’t like someone/something? Or … don’t like what’s happening in your life/world/government/neighborhood? Let’s just stop it. Now. We can change. We can now choose to cease our behavior and grow as infinitely better beings. “What’s that?” I hear you say, “But she or he said ‘blah, blah, blah…and this happened there…blah, blah…’ And […]
