Spring has sprung!

Today is the Spring Equinox. I celebrated it by spending time in my garden and appreciating how everything is blooming and blossoming and blowing up. It is truly a joy to be able to experience growth in this manner. And I must say that it is no accident. It takes a great deal of time and effort to tend a garden and keep it beautiful, but this effort is never work for me. It is not a task, it is a privilege, it is a labor of love and so it is the easiest thing in the world. Here is a guided tour of my glorious garden on this beautiful first day of Spring.

Today I also went to the Winter Solstice sculpture, The same sculpture I observed the Winter Solstice at this past December. The reason I went to a Winter Solstice marker on the Spring Equinox was to actually see how far the sun has travelled along the horizon on its way from Winter to Spring. It was a beautiful thing to see the proof that we are on a planet spinning around a star. It was a joy to have a tangible experience and understanding of what seasons really mean.

Here is a picture of the Winter Solstice sculpture catching the sunset on December 21st.

Here is a picture of the sun setting on March 21st.

You can clearly see how far north the sun has travelled on its yearly path. It will go the same amount farther north until it reaches the Summer Solstice where it will stop and begin its trip south along the horizon. The sun will then end up back in the same place it is today on the Vernal Equinox, and eventually it will end up back inside the sculpture on the Winter Solstice. How magnificent the cycles of life are.

May your Spring be full of fulfilled intentions and new growth.

Altar Ego

I wrote this poem on a single sheet of loose-leaf paper in 1993, at the age of 19.

Altar Ego

My name is Infinity.
I am the playground of the gods.
I am the defier of the odds.
I am where everything has room to grow.
I give light somewhere to go.
Killing time is my only crime.
My grandeur is as sublime
As the world behind your eyes.
My scope is as blatant
As the stars that fill the sky.
I am the cause and effect
Of the unchanging change.
I make reality
And its twisters
So wonderfully
Painfully beautifully strange.
I keep science guessing.
Their curse is my blessing
Allowing for the progressing of thought.
I hold the answers to every question you’ve got.
I am the future and the past.
My gift to you is the present
Forever.
I am eternal.
I am never.
All and nothing are my realm
Where I am king.
Excited uncertainty
Is the feeling that I bring to life
That keeps it all interesting.
I dwell between numbers.
I live the impossible death.
I know no walls.
I am free
Within me.
My name is infinity…

Driggling

I came up with a new way to skate. I LOVE the bike path by my house but I was getting a little bored with just speed skating so I threw in some juggling / dribbling, or as I like to call it Driggling.

Driggling is something that I have done for almost 15 years. With the help of director Larry Clark (Kids, Bully, etc.) and some other good friends I have finally put it on film. I am currently shoping the concept to ad agencies for $trictly arti$tic rea$on$.

UFOs ?

I was never much of a UFO enthusiast. Part of me had always believed that not all UFO sightings/encounters are fake, but I never put too much thought into it. Then I found myself taking a lot of pictures of the sky in an effort to document the chemtrails and sylphs I was seeing so often. That’s when things got weird.

I was showing some pictures I took to a good friend of mine and he saw something other than clouds floating in the sky. Here is that picture.

What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming?

What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

NLP is a form of conversational therapy that optimizes the way you organize and utilize your thoughts and feelings. NLP is a way of thinking about the way you think, which can change the way you feel about the way you feel.

The most important part of this work is usually changing an attitude, not solving a problem, because how you are thinking about your problem is your problem more than you think your problem is.

Often NLP is referred to as a “pattern interrupt”. My job is to gather information, identify resources, and help you disrupt negative patterns.

The beauty of NLP is that it’s about process not content. It’s not about what the details of your problem are; it’s about how you do your problem. We won’t sit there like in traditional therapy and make you go over every detail of your problem session after session. I’m far more interested in discovering the way your problem manifests itself, so that we can interrupt that pattern and install new behavioral strategies. We won’t work on your stuff; we’ll work through it. We will learn your process then I will guide you to a new process. I will show you what your thoughts and feelings consist of, and then I will offer you the choice to change, (because if you don’t have choices, you can’t make them).

Behind Your Eyes

Here is another little poem I wrote back in 1994

Behind your eyes
And between your ears
Is where you’ve been lost
For all these years
Restricted by fears
Drowning in tears
Dying to live
Before you’re dead.

Everything ever is
All in your head
Yours to do with
What you choose.
If you play the game
Know how to lose
That is how you win.

You must look
At how you look
That you might see
All there is
To do
Is be
And the only way
To be
Is free.

One Dollar Per $econd

(I wrote this article in 2011 when the national debt was a mere 14.5 trillion dollars.)

A Dollar Per $econd

As the $hit continues to hit the fan, I just thought I’d put our 14.5 trillion dollar “national debt” into perspective. Since supposedly TIME = MONEY, for the sake of this example let’s say that one second equals one dollar.

60 seconds x 60 minutes x 24 hours = 86,400 seconds per day.

86,400 seconds per day x 365 days per year = 31,536,000 seconds per year.

31,536,000 seconds per year x 2011 years = 63,418,896,000 seconds since the beginning of the Common Era.

Which means that if you saved one dollar per second since the birth of Christ, you would have 63.5 billion dollars.

Moving on…

The Winter Garden part 4

I have not written a post lately because (among other things) I have been preparing to perform my one-man show tomorrow.

I have not been too busy to tend the Giving Garden though. It is doing wonderfully. Here it is as of February 19th 2015

It is going to be a bountiful Spring. I have planted many seeds that are about to blossom into fruition.
