Random Thoughts....

I was recently inspired to re-read a speech I remembered partially, delivered by one of my heroes Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 40+ years ago regarding America's involvement in Vietnam. It's eery how, if you substitute the word "Vietnam" with the word "Iraq", 90% of the speech could be delivered realistically today. Here's a piece of it, and there's a link folllowing that will take you to the speech in it's entirety..... for those who care.

I was having a conversation with a close friend of mine and we discussed the concept of “living intentionally”. I have long thought of myself as being a conscious and intentional person, but lately I’ve been pondering the meaning. I want to share with some of my other friends, my personal thoughts on intentional living.

I finally remembered (and found lyrics for) that song that's been bouncing around my cranium since the fest. It's School of Fish, three strange days. Part of it.....

Floating on my back
And staring at the gray
It was completely still
Except the pounding of my heart
Bringing me back to life
From three strange days........

Y’know what I think? I think it’s the fucking traffic – I mean it took me an hour to get from Carlsbad to Via de la Valle. WTF?!?!?!? I know, it’s not just that – but real life SUCKS! I want to live in paradise, with the woman of my dreams and have the traffic be a donkey cart that’s taking up the middl... read more

So, lately I’ve been pondering relationships – the intimate ones, with that unexplainable heart and soul connection – and I’ve wondered how certain people are attracted to other people that we would not have guessed would happen. Also, how we can be attracted to someone who is obviously not “right”. You ALL know what I’m talking about – maybe not specifically, but we ALL know this. He’s too cynical, or she’s still figuring things out, or they’re just not right for each other. But my quest... read more
