Magick, Mediation, Motivation – or lack thereof

Magick & Meditation Month was pretty much a bust I don’t feel like I accomplished anything and, in fact, I have regressed terribly in terms of other kinds of personal discipline, like exercise. What I was most hoping was that daily ritual would – yes “magically” – help my real life efforts in the interminable struggle to make ANY sort of money in Godforsaken Podunk. That … Continue reading Magick, Mediation, Motivation – or lack thereof

More on Mudras – Magick & Meditation Month

I mentioned a few days ago I’d started reading this book on mudras. I’ve pretty much finished it, the relevant parts anyway. I’ll return it on my next visit to the library As I mentioned on Insta 3 days ago, I started practicing a new hand mudra during my seated meditation, Pran Mudra. View this post on Instagram Card of the Day: 4 of disks, … Continue reading More on Mudras – Magick & Meditation Month

“Lazy” is a symptom of a larger apathy

Exercise just isn’t a priority right now Well, it’s true, that even after a couple decades of self-motivated effort that any break in the discipline can take root in a short period of time. This is why it wasn’t at all a waste of money to keep purchasing HR monitors when the old ones failed, especially if you consider the difference in costs between that and a … Continue reading “Lazy” is a symptom of a larger apathy

Mornings are good though

Such an aimless existence. Every morning I wake up slowly, but my first interactions are always positive. Cats! I usually get pillow cuddles from at least one of them, then I get up and get my coffee fixings. I feed them upstairs. I’d have to sit on the toilet in the downstairs bathroom with them if I didn’t, to keep track of who eats what … Continue reading Mornings are good though

Sloth of New Year’s

It’s a rest day? Welp, I think I need a day off exercise. New Year’s Eve was low key. We cooked and there was no bickering and that was fantastic. Actually we got steaks to grill, which is definitely not  a weekly event so that was a treat. Watched some Grimm on Prime. Watched some Lucifer on Netflix. Went to sleep before midnight. And apparently … Continue reading Sloth of New Year’s

The force is not with me today – partial yoga & other stuff

Rogue Was a little dizzy this morning. We went to Rogue in the Pearl last night & both had the halibut fish & chips. (Also beer, and then some whiskey.) Very nice food only they seem to have ruined their vibe with the recent renovation. We got there a bit past 6pm on a Friday night, and the main room was mostly empty. When we … Continue reading The force is not with me today – partial yoga & other stuff

Coaxing oneself along with planned rewards & Meditation

Here’s a night time post. That’s three today! I need a break from The Road though. First day in and I’m already at 53%. This book was published in 2006. I was surprised! Thought it was older than that. The movie was only three years later, which is pretty rapid turnaround. I looked it up on Amazon but it’s not available for streaming, not that … Continue reading Coaxing oneself along with planned rewards & Meditation

Reading at Starbucks

The kitschy building across the street is Casa Colima, a sort of serviceable, whitewashed Mexican restaurant. They do make really good margaritas, served in those big goblets, too heavy to pick up single handedly. I can’t afford to be a cocktail person anymore though, and I rarely suggest it, as I’m enough of a freeloader already. Not by choice! But then that doesn’t matter. Finished … Continue reading Reading at Starbucks

Christmas, dreams, what to do today

Merry Christmas! I replaced the Amazon can you feel it commercial music with the theme from Winter Soldier pic.twitter.com/rXMcDGoWcJ — Omar Najam (@OmarNajam) November 24, 2018 I had some wacky dreams last night The most memorable involved being in the same room with a gargantuan Drumpf and a swarthy, bearded, sort of West Village type sycophant, assisting the orange one in some way that was not … Continue reading Christmas, dreams, what to do today

I’ve become a master of getting back to sleep in the morning

Multiple times! This morning it was four. When I wake from a dream in the early morning, before daybreak, Theodora will usually sense it & come over meowing for pets and attention. If it’s later in the morning, she’ll just come wailing in the room in outrage and wake me up. Henry’s more subtle. He’ll circle the bed clockwise, usually stepping on and pulling my … Continue reading I’ve become a master of getting back to sleep in the morning
