The Cold Within

Six humans trapped by happenstance
In bleak and bitter cold.
Each one possessed a stick of wood
Or so the story’s told.

Their dying fire in need of logs
The first man held his back
For of the faces round the fire
He noticed one was black.

The next man looking ‘cross the way
Saw one not of his church
And couldn’t bring himself to give
The fire his stick of birch.

The third one sat in tattered clothes.
He gave his coat a hitch.
Why should his log be put to use
To warm the idle rich?

The rich man just sat back and thought
Of the wealth he had in store
And how to keep what he had earned
From the lazy shiftless poor.

The black man’s face bespoke revenge
As the fire passed from his sight.
For all he saw in his stick of wood
Was a chance to spite the white.

The last man of this forlorn group
Did nought except for gain.
Giving only to those who gave
Was how he played the game.

Their logs held tight in death’s still hands
Was proof of human sin.
They didn’t die from the cold without
They died from the cold within.

Timothy Kinney

A quote I ran into sitting a gallery row one day……

It makes me smile when people are complete assholes for no reason at all. They have no idea how much their bullshit fuels people like me.

Author ~Christopher Poindexter~

When others get mad at me for reacting to their bullshit then claim I am the messed up one, the one that is an asshole, a bitch, etc. makes me laugh. Spread your crap, your bullshit. I like fate. I don’t even have to respond, act, or anything because one day, others will see you for who you really are, the way I see you.

What’s Up

You know after about two or three years working on this blog, I kinda think it represents how I do things. Keep slowly working on it, not always consistent. Have lots of time constraints. pretty random…….. But I don’t give up, I change here and there, well, some things anyway. i like to think of it like my core stays the same I just try on different things, outfits, experiences, etc. Like what’s next, wooo hooo.

At 34 I want to say you spend your childhood having fun, it’s like you know exactly who you are. No problems. Experiencing the world the whole time. You get a little older, people start telling you about the world, you have to do this, do that, should be like whatever, listen to what they think you should. You spend your teenage years confused by what’s happening to your body, lol. Fighting any and all authority, whether you show it, admit, or do it openly. Your adult years are like here ya go….do whatever…..you leave one set of rules (which looking back are a lot easier) to another. You meet all sorts of people with all sorts of ideas of how they think life should be. You get kids, jobs, bills, life, blah, blah, blah…..

Thirties, you begin to say hey, what is wrong with who I am. Maybe I want to just ignore what everyone has told you what things should be and just be like it was when you were a kid. Or can you even remember anymore? Well, I know I can. But now I have so much more available to me. Much more at my disposal. You begin to find there are people out there like you……you feel normal……well, normal in the sense that there are others that are like you. You fit in somewhere. You are normal to them, lol. I guess. Well, ok anyway, lol. It’s like I was listening to the Q100 the other morning and they asked people to call in about fits the had thrown just because, lol. Oh it was so funny. This one lady, wanted some sort of ice cream or smoothie from say Mcdonald’s and her husband went to another restaurant and bought it. He gave it to here, she just threw it our the window. lol One lady did something so bad her and her boyfriend broke up. I wish I could remember more. They were so funny. That show does have some good stuff on it. And listening makes me feel like hey, yeah i did something like that maybe I’m not so weird, or bad, or whatever.

It’s just life, people making you feel bad or acting like your weird or not being a well adjusted adult for doing things like that…………this is what I say, so what. Sounds like a normal thing to do. Just because we are adults doesn’t mean we can’t act 5 every now and then. It’s when people act like that all the time is when there is a problem or really hurt people, well, physically is what I ‘m thinking anyway. Just clarifying that………… Well, enough for now. TTYL or some other day, probably not any time soon. But ya never know, lol Random thoughts……..

Ok, I have been trying to come up with something to write, i just can’t think of anything. Been trying for days. Well, there was this one moment when I had an idea and then like 15 minutes later I forgot. Big Yahhhhh!!!! Well, I am used to forgetting stuff I want to do at this point so no biggy. What a few weeks this has been….. Between family stuff, some good, some bad. Some of the bad actually will turn out for the good I think. 🙂

I found some activities to do with my daughter this summer with the county rec center, I’m excited!!! Hope it all turns out. 🙂 I can’t believe she is going into high school this coming school year. My babies are growing up. I just don’t feel old enough, but I have heard that from several people. You don’t ever really feel old enough to have teenagers, grandkids, etc, etc………I have two teenagers now and my 6 year old. I’m only 34, but in another way I’m like OMG I’M 34, nooooooooo, lol it’s not that bad. Well, except for the aches and pains, lol. I like being 34, you feel more centered and who you are, not so wondering and trying to figure stuff out. I still like to wonder stuff, I’m just saying wondering who you are, who you wanna be, you understand that is always changing, growing. You don’t always have to be the same. But you don’t have to put up with shit from others. Not that you ever had to, you just did to keep the peace. Now I just walk away, ignore the bullshit, they are generally not even worth the bitch slap they deserve, lol. But enough about that.

Namaste, peace, and all that other stuff, blah, blah, blah. No disrespect, I just like saying blah, blah, blah. You should hear my youngest say it, It’s so cute, lol.

Yah know, I have been thinking……..it’s dangerous I know. lol. Things that make me happy……..

One: not have to do dishes……lol

Two: no kids on my weekends off and no kids at least half a week on week long vacations……..if you were me you would understand. Everybody’s life is different………

Three: respect……..age means nothing here. You don’t respect, you don’t get it………be a good steward…….

Four: everyone picks up after themselves, no slobs. This is a different world now. no more excuses……….

Five: ex’s don’t exist, two to four conversations a month if you have too period (divorces with kids, gotta add that cause I gotta deal with that junk, ugh),…….no more listening or doing things to please there weird crap.

Six: For married couples to listen to their spouses more, not family, not ex’s, not friends, your spouse! People do weird things…….

Seven: nobody to hide from reality……….over excessive use of technology, (we can do other things), ignoring responsibilities, if you don’t know, then learn. Learn how to learn on your own…….. people are capable of great things. I did believe……..

Eight: nobody blaming the past, others, excuses, this is a new world now……….forget everything you have every known. If you can’t forget stupid crap, then teach yourself how………no more excuses.

Nine: For others to learn how to focus, learn more about people, not just the fun stuff. There is more fun out there than partying, drinking, and such. And sometimes it takes hard work, time, and boring crap, but it is worth it. Trust me, I know. I have tried a lot of different things……… stop making excuses………

Ten: oh yeah, it would make me happy to never have to pay to go out to have fun, or drink, go out to eat, or anything else like that. I love vacations, even more so if I don’t have to pay for anything……….. any bills too– yah!!!!!

Eleven: If your not happy then do something about it, not the same thing we have always done. It makes everyone around that person unhappy too. There are about 7 billion people in this world, their are a lot of people out there that are happy………..

Twelve: I see the potential in everyone, it makes me happy for them to see and act on it. And it is different for everybody, don’t rely on what others do, say, or anything.  Advise is helpful and nice, but it only goes so far. For others to trust in themselves and stop making excuses………

That’s about all I got so far. oh, buy me stuff, surprise me (with happy stuff), think about me (not just wondering what I’m doing, where am I at), learn about me………I need alone time sometimes, i prefer daytime between 9-10am-ish to about 1-2pm-ish

A story of Four People

A friend of my husband’s came and stayed with us a while a few months back. We wrote this really awesome piece and left it on our refrigerator. I thought it cool enough to put here. So…….here it is. lol

This is a story of four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody though Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anyone could have done.

Again, I thought it was pretty cool.

Hope you are doing well Jason……I know it’s been rough, but hang in there, man.

Oh, I almost forgot, I finished reading Starseed. It is a totally awesome book. I put a couple of quotes on my facebook page from it. And I think that last post on here with the pics has a section from it. If you get a chance read it. It’s not a long book. About 150 pages.

Oh yeah, Happy New Year……..wooooo hoooooo
