Merry Merry

Sitting on the couch,
wrapped in the hugging warmth of those loving arms,
watching the orchestra playing on TV,
and the dancers on the shiny ice,
Looking out through the window to even more layers of ice everywhere,
and feeling merry.

Happy holidays to you my dear reader, I wish you all lots of love, joy, and peace.

Fighting FUDS

Nothing is more harmful to a positive creative attitude than fears, uncertainties and doubts (FUDS); yet most people let FUDS control their lives. It is much more productive to learn to control your FUDS; to transform destructive negative attitudes into a new, positive reality. To do this, simple acknowledge the negative feelings and then focus your energies on what you want to substitute for them.
Suppose you are driving along and your oil pressure gauge comes on, warning you that your car is overheating. This is a negative indicator. However, you don't ignore it, nor you become paralyzed with fear. You simply stop at service station, have it corrected and drive one. Following this incident you do not look at the oil pressure gauge continuously while you're driving, allowing the gauge to monopolize your thoughts. To do so means slow and erratic driving, if you had the courage to drive at all. So it is with your fear and doubts. you need to acknowledge them, and then replace them with positive thoughts.

Orchestral Christmas

I like holiday season mostly because of its musicality. I enjoy different chorus signings and also many of the holiday orchestral pieces. I'm listening to this Pandora station, quite drowned into the music.

Things I never say

Things i never say
still looking for the kids land where words are spare
haunted by my expectations
in the land of all words.
