Life through my myopic eyes.

On Hold

Everyone at one point or another gets their life put on hold. By that I mean, you get put in a “holding pattern.” Like an aircraft you are just circling around waiting to land. And like an aircraft, you life is “up in the air.” Getting your life put on hold is common. It can… Read More ›

Manipulators

  The world is full of manipulators. We all know at least one, although I think that the figure of “one” is much too low. Unfortunately, manipulators are not easy to recognise. They do not have a sign around their necks stating their intent or (unfortunately) saying “unclean.” But if you look carefully you can… Read More ›

Incapacity

I have discovered that I do not handle being incapacitated well. You would think I would be quite good at it considering I had back problems for years. But I have gotten used to “living normally” and being relatively pain free. In my defence I will say it is not just being incapacitated that bothers… Read More ›

Another Blog??

So, here I go. Opening up yet another blogging format. First I just had to try Blogger. Then I had to try Tumblr. Now I am trying WordPress. Why. Do I have a lot to say? Do I have  a lot of ideas rumbling around in my head? Do I feel I have something special… Read More ›

It is also “over-used.” Let me explain. My heritage is strong Native American. Both sides of my family tree in the not too distant… Read More ›

Work

I take metaphorical pen in hand to write this latest blog because of a question that was asked by  Dolan Mayorga. He asked, innocently enough, what I did for a living. I was stumped for an answer. Why? Well, the organisation I work for has made it against the rules to tell anyone on the “world-wide… Read More ›

Zombie

After injuring my back at work over three weeks ago, I am starting to feel a little bit like a zombie. Between the medication and the pain, I have become an almost monosyllabic creature. I rarely say a full sentence. I usually respond to queries and conversational starters with little more than a grunt. I’m not only… Read More ›

Jobs

The comic Chris Rock does a brilliantly funny routine about jobs versus careers. Chris says, ” When you’ve got a job there’s too much time. When you have a career you don’t have enough time.” “People who have careers need to learn to shut the f**k up around people who have jobs. Don’t let your career make someone else sad!”… Read More ›
