2:14 pm - Hello :-)
I've been kind of sickish this past week, some kind of stomach flu :-( But, it seems I'm getting less under the weather today :-) Facebook won't let me post unless it is as a comment. Got way behind on here but I'm catching up :-) Patience is the ultimate tool :-) Next is Yahoo :-)

3:38 pm - A friend sent me this. Right on!
Give up the feeling of responsibility, let go your hold, resign the care of
your destiny to higher powers, be genuinely indifferent as to what becomes
of it all and you will find not only that you gain a perfect inward relief,
but often also, in addition, the particular goods you sincerely thought you
were renouncing.

(William James, 1842-1910 - U.S. psychologist, philosopher. The Varieties of
Religious Experience, Lectures 4-5, "The Reli gion of Healthy-Mindedness"

Hi --Blame DQ and Ishmael et al. Short on words today, as usual. Back still hurts me from sciatica--back and leg pain, a BUMMER--and today is my 73rd bday, so be good to yourself :-)

2:46 pm - At long last,
I turned in my passport application yesterday. Hooray for me :-) Thank god :-) All I need now is air fare to Zagreb, Croatia. Don't know how long I've wanted this--at least since Shrub got elected :-) Have to go see what my grandfather left behind in the old country :-) Of course I know a little bit about what I'm looking for--people who behaved like my dad did at times when I was a kid, people who approached life with a gusto I just don't find in Amerika. I feel there is too much fear here--this is a Protestant nation, a Puritan nation bound up in guilt and shame, fear and anguish, trying to do the "right" thing. Bother :-( It'll take a while I know--I've been a vitamin freak for like 50 years, trying this and then that "for my health" and it costs me like $300 a month. Bother. You live until you die, and nobody knows what's next, but it's a big universe :-)

9:18 am - Writer's Block: In Memoriam
It's Memorial Day in the States, a time to remember those who have died while in military service. Who would you like to remember today?

My uncle, Wilmer Lee Hardy. He was in the Philipines when the japanese attacked and survived the
Bataan-Corregidor march, only to die after evacuation when a US bomb/torpedo sank the submarine he was on. Bummer!

10:44 am - "Because I have nothing to say,
I must say sometning."

Seems to me that the desire==the need to communicate is built into the human phenomenon/process, the body and mind and spirit. Lord knows I try but I tend to get hung up in "what to say". Bummer! Or in spelling and my dyslexia, my mistyping as fingers hit the wrong key. I'm trying to ignore that right now, altho I'll probably go back and catch as many of my goofs as possible :-)

Yeah, I just proofread that first paragraph. My parents and my teachers could be pretty harsh about spelling and penmansship, drat it.

Things are pretty quiet for me these days, but I am striving to keep my involvement in rescuing Wall Street--and Main Street--low. Don't spend much on anything except food and other necessities. Thank Providence and the FDR administration for social security and the cost-of-living adjustment :-)

Peace and love and perseverance :-) Go on :-) O.K., I'm smiling :-)

7:33 am - The family secret?
What family secret? Who doesn't know that we are all incomplete, dogged by fears that they will find out we are less than perfect? We learn these supposed secrets from our families, mostly nonverbal, altho some are whispered to us at the damnedest times. Little sister tells big brother and big brother gets back at her by telling her what she does that is not up to snuff for mommy or daddy. Bother.

And so starts another day. Gotta start speaking my mind some day and if my audience isn't here I'll have to send it to where you are.

As Gene Autry used to sing, "May your days be merry and bright." Or not :-)

3:47 pm - Bah Humbug :-(
I should post more but run into writer's block and fumble fingers. Bother. I just tried to write a piece and lost it, this is the short version. I recently read Zero Limits by Joe Vitale and Ihaleakala Hew Len


Read the reviews? I am highly delighted that I read the book and use the process thoughout the day.

And now, later :-)

Love and peace,

Hummer :-)

2:07 pm - From adayinthelife :-) trippy :-)
open source funk OR when youtube meets mashups

holy crap. this guy has taken about 15 different youtube videos of instrumentalists doing different songs. he's taken the clips and mixed them together into some pretty phat conglomerations.

Kutiman, the masterful Israeli funk musician and producer, outdoes himself by creating Thru-You: Multiple YouTube clips (mostly instructional and performance videos) edited into slick mega-mashups. They're not just patchwork assemblages, they're sample-based original creations that coud hold their own on anyone's album... Plus they're 100% audiovisual! It's a work of next-level genius.

10:46 am - Go, go, go.
Go go go.
Go shit, go shave.
Smoke. Get ready :-)

Do. Do this, do that.
Do. Do. Do.
with a side of be-ing?

Act and react,
create and destroy.
Again. From the top--
or side or bottom.
Go on :-)

Time? No time.
Gotta go,
gotta do.

Or not.

Be :-)
