It’s been bad recently, or is it that I’ve been bad? The promising weather is keeping me from updating too often. After updating has been done, almost last minute nowadays, stepping away from the laptop is the anticipated next move. The other day Alexis, improv peer and yoga teacher and life strategist, brought me to a nook of Skaneateles that unbeknownst to me: Charlie Major Nature Trail. We had a nice walk, sitting by one of the waterfalls, wading in the water, wading in the freezing Skaneateles water, and throwing off our equilibrium on the swing set.
It’s the home stretch of her Mindful Month, and she’s continuing to post a couple times a day; I’m just a few days behind schedule. However, I’m going to keep the practice going. It’s only necessary; good things, feeling should be cherished and continued. After a lunch date yesterday, it’s good to hear other meditation fans having an uphill battle with fitting in time with deep breathing as many of us are.
So, I’ve been disregarding and ignoring The Abyss in the sense that better things have to be done. This has nothing to do with indolence, but these better things that have to be done are enjoy life. There is much enjoyment that technology gives us all, but Mother Nature is just as appealing. I’m going to keep following, sometimes giving the rope some slack now-and-then. It’s a nice day out, and you all should enjoy yourselves on the WordPress pontoon boat.
With Maya Angelou’s passing yesterday, my practically last-minute update for The Inevitable Coffee Ring‘s Thursday segment, The Esspresso Shot, was semi-inspired by her. E. E. Cummings is quoted, and the collection of poetry I bought weeks ago is the focus of the piece, but Angelou’s passion and her philosophy was considered greatly. She exuded creativity and passion, and only wished for everyone to do the same, and that is to simply say the least.
This will end here, because you have your two links below leading to the this week’s two Syracuse New Times pieces.
The first is a rant, and it’s my taking a step back from my living in Syracuse to living in the United States.
The Espresso Shot piece is lethargically creative Non-fiction, and it was purposely written strange. It teeters quasi-tip-of-the-iceberg-David-Lynch-first-thought-before-creating-Twin-Peaks strange. No, I am not comparing myself to Lynch. There is an abrupt ending, open-ended, which is purposeful.

I play with words and invisible objects.
A mind, a pen and a piece paper have the best relationship ever.
