Be where

22 Jun

you’re the most YOU.

The day is a 

22 Jun

story of stories.  Even, and especially, what you think is insignificant is tremendously valuable and promising.  Right now, I’m having an iced coffee, sitting at one of those small square tables at the Hopper Starbucks.  The significance?  I’m collecting myself, my thoughts and my character, ideas and swimming, skipping in possibilities.  I’m alive–  Better, I’m mentally alive.  All the possibilities can be brought to actuality.  Which do I want?  Why not all?  Why not treat yourself to everything you want?

Be tireless.  Use and mold every moment to be your own.  The story and all the stories within it, like RIGHT NOW, are yours… are valuable, are more than enough to get you where you want to be.

Enjoy your day.  Be creative, happy, and free.

Tired tonight,

29 May

but waking early with wife.  She to spin, me to scribe.  Thought dominant for day–  resisting nothing, working with whatever’s before you.  Make everything your own.  Today, just drove through day, made every moment mine.  Even walking past a glass atop a placemat I seized, if only to move the glass a couple centimeters to the right.  I did something.  I made it MINE.  And funny, now that I’m writing (or really typing with thumbs on phone), I’m waking up.  Second wind if you want to look at it that way.  But I have to force Self to early bed.  I need three pages before leaving for winery.

Conversation with Courtney on Merlot, Zins, winemaking…

Me, reciting wine, not selling it

To want something is

21 May

humorous.  To be demonstrative of hunger and pursuit and actually acquire is worthy of study.  Be your professor, a student of your Self– study your habits and actions, enjoy your strengths and follies.  Everything is meant to come together for us.  We merely have to be more perceptive of our innate promise.  Do not want or wish.  Hungry, pursue, and establish your echo.

Day’s end…

14 May

Take inventory.  Assess and appreciate…

Immediacy is key with creative.  Blending unlike things is what reveals gems.

Early… wake up early, arrive early… early fixes breaks and stalls before they appear.

Sometimes with the creative, you have to let what’s around you control and direct.

Talk to people, learn from them.

Self-doubt will drown you.  Stay away from that pond.

Walks.  Walks solve what you think is unsolvable.

With anything you write,

10 May

put on a more-than-fantastic show for YOURSELF.
