Category: T is for…


THE TAO OF TIME

Good day, dear friends and readers and visitors and everyone else…

Just a note about this piece, before you get to it…

This piece began as an analog work of art (i.e. not digital), maybe as many as 20ish years ago. For some reason, I was able to hold on to it, through several moves (some cross country) and much weeding out of stuff. Now, I realize this isn’t just any stuff, as evidenced by the fact that it survived lo those many years. Now I have the original stored/stashed away somewhere, so good… well, I can’t find it. So, having intended to convert it to digital, considering the fact the original showed the wear and tear of the years, much like myself. Hence, when I was moved to put it into the digital realm, today, I pretty much had to start from scratch. Fortunately, I think my same muse as back then sort of helped me out, and I think most of it is as complete as that one was. The beauty of this one is that it will continue to be a work in progress for me. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible, even if I had the original in hand, because I had run out of room, and I didn’t have the limitless capacity for modification/change/growth that we enjoy today.

But, I will say, I am as proud of this, as I was of the original, all created on a 5×7 piece of cardstock, painted (pretty simply in the IRIE color palette) and then all caligraphed by my own novitiate hand. Just knowing it’s around somewhere, is enough for me.

so without further ado, I present to you (the title was an addition of recent days) THE TAO of TIME…

Thanks so much for visiting, stopping by, passing through, etc…

just so you know, this final (WIP, so sort of final) version has much inspiration from my time here and all the wonderful folks I’ve come to know and love…

So, thanks very much, for your inspiration…

WOW! COOL! I feel soooo special!!!! REALLY!!!

But what’s the “Twilight Zone” music gots to do with it? I hear you thinking.  Well, T is first for Tagged, which I have been, thanks to the effervescent Lisa from A Gripping Life. I don’t care if they are “duty full”, I love these little community get-to-know-ye things. Now, the second part of T is for… Twilight Zone music (doodoodoodut, doodoodoodut)  is because (honest to goodness truth), I was just reading Thypolar’s recent post about her being “tagged” by some wicked (NOT really) lady called Mrs. Sparkly. Probably the questions are different, but, you know, one tag is as good as another tag, right? After I finished reading her post, I returned to my inbox, where all my weekly notifications lurk (and I have LOTS of them, just take a peek at my page awesomeblogsifollow if you dare to doubt this).  So, I clicked on the next in line, and there it was – a comment from Lisa, informing of my taggee status. That’s just too spooky.

So, first I most graciously accept this honor and thank the loverly Lisa at A Gripping Life  (love her avatar) for thinking of me!

Then, I believe, it’s time to post the “rules”, which I dutifully do:

Rules

1. You must post the rules.    check
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.   check
3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.   check
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!   check

1. If deserted on an island what is the one book, one film, and one album/CD you would request. hmmmmm… book (I grok) would be easy – “Stranger in a Strange Land” by Robert Heinlen.  Movie: if I’d seen it, it might be the Swedish version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” – for sure not the diluted American version – but since I haven’t seen it, I will choose “American Beauty” (I’m sure I”ll be able to use Kevin Spacey as an answer in here somewhere). CD is (thought it would be harder to agree with myself on one) “Pathways to Surrender” by Chris Spheeris (these tunes make me weak in the knees and choked up now, just like they first did in 1988) – I highly recommend them all, but “From Where They Fall” and “Walk with Me” are totally sublime.

2. In Heaven, I hope there’s an unlimited supply of Starbucks, hands down.

3. If I could change one body part it would be my colon, because it has been nothing but a pain in the arse!

4. My favorite day of the week is Monday. Because I love looking forward to a full set of weekdays. Answer could be different if I were a working stiff!

5. The person who makes me laugh the most is George Carlin.

6. My dream occupation would be Kevin Spacey’s best friend, or a prolific sci-fi writer or an astrophysicist or a composer of beautiful music. For now.

7. My favorite dream car is a Jaguar XKR-S convertible, because you can’t get one “off the rack”.

8. My most hated Teacher was none – I liked ALL my teachers. Worst class gym (’nuff said).

9. Would you rather be eaten by sharks or eaten by lions? Or, live in a world of mud? (This last option is a family joke, by the way.) Live in a world of mud with Kevin Spacey and no one else!!!

10. My favorite smell is garlic sauteeing in butter.

11. If I had to change my first name it would be Hannah, for one, it’s a palindrome, for two, it’s a beautiful name, especially when spoken.

Now, my tagees:

Before I tag you, though, please feel free to decline to participate. I judge not, nor do I bite. 😉

If I Were Brave

ok, so I can’t count. One or two of these folks haven’t posted for a while and may not feel well, so I added a couple tagees for good measure. If there is ANYONE I didn’t tag, that would like to be, just let me know and I’ll add you right away.

and your questions are:

1) If you could live in any OTHER time, when would it be and why?

2) What about yourself are you most proud of?

3) Who is your absolute favorite musical artist/group? Movie?

4) What subject was your favorite in all of your schooling? Why?

5) The most important thing I want to teach my children is____________.

6) What three things would you grab if your house were aburning and you knew for sure your family and animals were all safe?

7) Do you have nightmares? Care to share?

8) Coke or Pepsi?

9) Do you believe in the paranormal? Do you have any experiences you’d like to tell us about? Please?

10) My favorite season is _______________ because__________.

11) What one 6 word phrase or sentence best describes you?

(I’ll start you off – for me: “Did I say that out loud?”)
(I believe I owe this idea partly to Lisa, as well, though I’ve done my fair share of 3-4-5-6 word stories and the like.)

Trump trumps Mitt…

greetings friends… yes, today is Friday, and shortly you will get that for which you have been waiting all week (fractals, right?!?!?), but first, I wanted to start off today with my favorite pundit sharing his delicious points of view…

enjoy…
