A crisis is the fastest way to your future…

Reading through something that I had once written to someone I came across a portion that I feel like sharing.  Many strange and unusual things have been happening in my corner of the world and rereading this made me take new stock.  It didn’t solve anything.  I’m not even sure there is a problem to be solved persay.  But it did make me look at things with a new lens.  Sometimes perspective is half the problem and once it shifts so goes the problems you thought you once had.

“It may be coincidence or the normal flow of life but it seems that everyone around me is stuck in some form of existential quicksand.  We all have our hands on the vine that may enable us to climb out of the murky mess but our feet seem unable to break free forcing us to dwell in this strange state.  Someone once told me during a difficult time in their life that a “crisis is the fastest way to your future”.  I always assumed that the “crisis” in question was a tangible, a happening an event or series of events.  But recently I realized that a “crisis” can be one of pure perception and that there is no time limit imposed.”

“I’m not…”

 

From time to time I am going to list some of my tshirt designs on this here blog o’mine.  Blogs are the newest and fastly becoming one of the most popular forms of marketing.  Although that is not the reason I started it I can’t help but take advantage of the opportunity this forum provides.

So with that in mind take a look at my latest.

Reflection…

Recently while reading the introduction of a book there was a question posed.  I have been wrapping my mind around this question for a couple of days now and thought it worth asking.  “Sunlight on a canal is reflected up through a window onto the ceiling, then from the ceiling onto a vase, or a silver bowl.  Which is the real sunlight?  Which is the real reflection?”

Seems like a simple answer but is it?

Why can’t I finish…

I am a reader a huge reader.  I am sure that one day you will happen upon the entries here and see recommendations, reviews and links to favorite reads.  But today I am stuck.  I have been attempting to finish several books that I started all of which I still have an interest in and yet I can’t seem to complete one of them let alone all of them.  So to this I pose the question why when you have a list of “Can’t Wait to Reads”  can you not finish what you have already begun?  Even if they were on your can’t wait to read list in the past.

In the beginning…

So here I sit poised with fingers ready and waiting.  An empty virtual notebook for recording whatever I find worthy of sharing.  It goes without saying that I can’t think of a single thing to say.  This comes from a desire to keep everything crisp and clean and perfect.  Once I start to post that changes, it becomes soiled forever.  It’s like a relationship, blogging is.  Everything goes along just fine and then one day you say something you shouldn’t have.  But it’s to late.  It’s out there never to be forgotten unable to take it back, never reaching the point you once were at.   One morning I’ll wake and find that I no longer want what I posted out there for the whole world to see.  I suppose that’s the risk one takes when choosing to share anything whether it’s your life with virtual strangers across an electronic web or a person sitting across from you hoping to share your most intimate moments. 

Living one’s life based on the oh no’s and what if’s leaves it empty and far less interesting.  So here goes!  Why not?
