Several Thoughts of The Day:

1. When did I get so jaded?

2. I love New England.

3. It's time for an attitude adjustment.

The last month of my life has been mind opening; no, literally, picture a figurative can opener and a can of spaghetti and said freshly opened spaghetti quivering with newness, excitement, and some brand of fear. (After all, spaghetti can be eaten.)

Plus, as is obvious by my neurotic note making above, I need some time to theorize philosoph-ize and re-prioritize various things in my life. And hell if I'm not convinced that spending that selfish reflection time in a slow, thorough way isn't the kindest thing I can do for myself. Hell, that any human being can do for themselves.

What stuck with me into the week; the advice to streamline contradictions in your life. Your actions. Values. Lifestyle. Relationships. Dialogues, monologues, every logue in between. To create a wholistic life by living wholistically (holistic s the w reeks too much of religion for my tastes).

You know, the older I get, the more it occurs to me that the best advice is the simplest advice.

I think this picture of me sums up the approach I need to adopt:

Written in an email to Philippe:

It's so scarily easy to loose sight of your capacity to innovate and bend things to YOU and not become, conversely, BENT..
