Friends

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?”  ~
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh I logged into Facebook a second ago and found it was “Friendship Day.” So to my friends here, there and everywhere, Happy friendship day, I am so blessed to be surrounded by you all! You are the smartest, funniest and wisest people I know. “I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.”

Bully

I realized that bullying never has to do with you. It’s the bully who’s insecure.  ~Shay Mitchell I was going to write a longwinded commentary on this topic, luckily for me, and more probably for you, my work is taking over my life. As you know I rarely, if ever, speak of politics on this blog. I find the subject to be very private to an individual and very polarizing to a group. That said, I want to just throw something up here for you to think about. As you know cyber-bullying is the use of electronic technology to torment, threaten, harass, humiliate, embarrass or otherwise target a victim.  I’m sure you find this behavior abhorrent, I know I sure do. Heck, the sad part is, when it’s someone in authority doing the bullying and his followers find the behavior acceptable. This kind of “group think” typically creates a rather hostile atmosphere, don’t you think? Not sure what I’m talking about? I was reading The New York Times  over the weekend and ran across an article on Donald Trump.  … Read the rest24103391384_427847639c_o

Sing A New Song

If in the twilight of memory we should meet once more, we shall speak again together and you shall sing to me a deeper song. ~ Khalil Gibran Life is a song – sing it.
Life is a game – play it.
Life is a challenge – meet it.
Life is a dream – realize it.
Life is a sacrifice – offer it.
Life is love – enjoy it. ~ Sai Baba Are you going to be the type of person who sits back and lets life happen to you, or will you get up and face it head on, creating your own destiny? Just something to think about if you were sitting there thinking you needed something to think about. Outfit

On Parenting

If your kids are giving you a headache, follow the directions on the aspirin bottle, especially the part that says, ‘keep away from children.’ ~ Susan Savannah I figured out today that it’s probably a good thing I can’t have children. They require work and care you see, and as a non-morning person I’m pretty sure they don’t have too many children who live on bankers hours. Do they? Case in point, lately, Katy, you know, my resident Duchess Dee.Oh.Gee, other-wise known as the Jack Russell Terrior-isT has been leaving hints that she is considering putting me up for adoption. You can imagine the behavior, leaving my favorite T-shirt at the door next to my sneakers, pulling my backpack out of the closet, typing and printing a “new mom wanted poster” and sticking it on the fridge. A few months ago she started having seizures, since she is 15 years old this probably isn’t too uncommon. Her “DockTore” as she calls him, put her on a low dose of phenobarbital, which though it has stopped the seizures, judging by the way she constantly looks like she wants to chew on my leg, I think it makes her feel hungry all the time.… Read the restOn Parenting

Troubadour’s and Minstrel’s

Thank the God’s for the Troubadour’s and Minstrels~ Cao Kind of strange but oddly true, I began to write this blog late into Saturday night, but nodding off on the laptop I decided to save it for another day. Somehow I think the fates got it right by holding me off. There are few, I’d say an “nth” percentile of hearing abled humans who don’t have some song, just one song that they have grabbed so close to their heart because it touched some piece of their life. Just some speck, a relationship, a struggle, a triumph. The song just seemed to fill, in a musical way, exactly what their lives were encompassing at that specific moment of their lives, filling it, giving it extra color, a new dimension of richness. Heck, I can actually say a lot of my “music” is provided by birds and cows most of these days, not complaining, just pointing out that not all music is music by the human kind. In fact this blog post was prompted by the braying (yes, like a donkey braying) of a bull I have lovingly nicknamed Broadway Joe due to his proclivity to serenade me through out the day.… Read the rest23665686174_f614841388_o

My Heart Used to Light Your Way

“I love you no matter what you do, but do you have to do so much of it?” — Jean Illsley Clarke   Somewhere between the evening news and getting caught up with the DVR’d shows I’ve not been watching last night it hit me that I’ve taken a huge step backwards in the love and life categories. It’s probably why I’ve been so blue lately, I’ve been barely breathing. Today, on the first day of this weekend I am recommitting to live my love, live my passion, rekindle my curiosity and dedicating these days to living my dreams. Sure we can all say that, but at some point for it to be true we have to show intent, not just words. Are you with me? In this moment, live your values. With each person you meet, live your compassion, your respect, your authenticity. Be real, that’s a hard one isn’t it? We put up these persona’s because we fear the real us is sadly lacking. Come with, let’s put aside just thinking about or wishing for those things that are most meaningful for us.… Read the restMy Heart Used to Light Your Way

A Carefully Whispered Lie

To every whisper if you listen carefully, you will hear or fail to hear something. ~ Auliq Ice I know, I know, the picture has nothing to do with the words. Though sometimes I imagine you can hear a quite a few whispered lies in the deafening silence of a softly falling snow. I had other directions to wander my words on this day, but the following poem fell into my eyesight and the day otherwise just became a tad bit melancholy. “When you left
you left behind a field
of silent flowers
under a sky
full of unstirred clouds…you left
a million butterflies
mid-silky flutters You left like midnight rain
against my dreaming ears Oh and how you left
leaving my coffee scentless
and my couch comfortless leaving upon my fingers
the melting snow of you you left behind
a calendar full of empty days
and seasons full of aimless wanders leaving me alone
with an armful of sunsets your reflection behind
in every puddle
your whispers
upon every curtain
your fragrance
inside every petal you left your echoes in between
the silence of my eyes Oh and how you left
leaving my sands footless
and my shores songless leaving me with windows full of
moistened moonlight nights and nights
of only a half-warmed soul and when you left…
you left behind a lifetime
of moments untouched the light of a million stars
unshed and when you left
you somehow
left my poem…unfinished.… Read the rest23549661489_2bb0415d7b_o

Embrace

I feel like life is really short, and it’s important to enjoy yourself and embrace whatever comes your way, whether it’s a challenging day or a great day, just welcome it with open arms. No matter who you are, you can’t escape challenges; they are part of life ~Miranda Kerr I’ve been sort of melancholy and quiet the past few weeks. I can’t point to exactly why, but I can say once again, I’ve thought long and hard about moving on from my Second Life. Heck, I only logged in once since December 23rd and when I did log in I just sort of stood there staring into cyber space. Though I’ve missed quite a few of you, for the most part I’ve been spending time with the sorts of people who like to hang with Cao version 1.0.  Am I leaving Second Life? I don’t really think so, but if I ever do, I know I would never leave those I hold so dear to my heart behind. You are not my Second Friends, you fit quite perfectly in that portion of heart reserved for the first batch, I reckon some of you are even on the status level of my posse material.… Read the rest23808163172_478dc6f0e5_o

Winters Cold Bite

Blessed are the weird people: poets, misfits, writers, mystics, painters, troubadours for they teach us to see the world through different eyes.” Jacoby Nordby   I always get a little sad about this time of December. One of my fondest memories of my dad, who died December 3rd, 2013, was when he would bring out his really old box set of the Hundred Aker (Acre) Wood by A.A. Milne and read to us. It was one of my favorite Christmas rituals. So now, I continue to read, though in a solitary sort of way. So as I read on, I will leave you with a quote from a very intelligent Eeyore to remind us as we get cut off in lines, or bustled about, or parking spaces are stolen right in front of our noses, the true beauty of the season can be kept with, “A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.”    Outfit

Walk With Me

“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.” ~ Steve Maraboli I love this part of the holidays, the shopping mostly done. Sitting with a good book and drinking eggnog. The silence of the home as if it knows if it waits still enough Saint Nick will include a house present for it. The crinkle of presents being peeked at when the crinkler thinks no one is listening. Find peace and happiness. I wish you all a year filled with peace and happiness. Outfit:
