2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.

Naturally Yourself

Naturally Yourself ?

Clouds forming over the Gardens at Waters East


When am I most naturally myself?

What people,  places,  and activities,

Allow me to feel most fully myself?

What is my heart’s deepest desire?

Well –Think About It!!!

Your Death – – by OTL

Unless you understand death,

          you will not comprehend living.


How you live each and every day,

Defines your understanding of death.


The myths you may or may not use in

          understand death,

Shape your reality in the living of each moment.


Belief in the here-after,

Belief in the only here-and-now,

          Expresses itself in each moment you are alive.

Eschatology may be the study of Death – Then What,

It best expresses itself in the – Now So What.


In either case – you may be living a lie!


Walk with Me

Be Still – – – and Know
