“Even the oceans have shallow spaces.”
— Phillip Rhoades
Wise Or Foolish?

Two novices were walking when they met a man beneath a tree. They spoke with him for many hours. At the end of their conversation the novices spoke to each other. One said that the man they had just met was the greatest fool, the other said that he was the wisest of all.

They continued their argument for a time and then went to their master. They brought their master to the man under the tree and let the two speak for a while alone while they returned to the monastery.

"Is he the greatest fool or the wisest of all?" they asked when the master returned to them.

"Yes," replied the master and then went to drink his evening tea.



You could wake up to this every day.



"(Be)cause You’re My Stalker"

I’m never alone
‘cause you’re always there
and when I need a hand
yours is always spare

And I know you care
‘cause you wrote it on my window in blood
‘cause your my stalker
and I know you’re there

I can feel your eyes on me
whenever I’m asleep
And I can hear you breath
when I’m in the shower
‘cause your my stalker
and I know you’re there

But don’t worry
I’m freakier than you
your my stalker
and I know you’re there

Hey, why are you runnin’?
Don’t run away
Hey, come back!

Now, I’m your stalker
‘Cause you stopped stalking me

Now, I’m your stalker
And I’m always there for you

Come on, come back and stalk me
I’ve got some lovely bushes in my yard
You can hide there

‘Cause you’re my stalker
and I know you’re there
you’re my stalker
I know you care

"…Rialto’s randomised controlled study has seized attention because it offers scientific – and encouraging – findings: after cameras were introduced in February 2012, public complaints against officers plunged 88% compared with the previous 12 months. Officers’ use of force fell by 60%.”

 ”Forgotten Feathers”

You kept me face down to the ground
so long I forgot that there was sky
Watched my blood and tears mingle in the dirt
and almost believed your lie
‘til I saw my feather sitting there
and remembered I can fly

You can’t keep me down
no never anymore
I can soar above your dirty hands
I can fly

I let you keep me down
Listened to your lie
You laughed at my blood and tears
turning dust to mud in my eye
‘til I saw my feather sitting there
and remembered I can fly

You can’t keep me down
no never anymore
I can soar above your dirty hands
I can fly

You can’t reach me
not with your dirty hands
I’m part of the sky
I can soar above your dirty hands
I can fly



This link leads to a printable PDF version of what I’ve been drawing in my notebook to keep track of productivity.
I break the day into Half-hour blocks.
X == Productive half hour (a half hour in which I worked on something important to me) Grey == Non Productive (TV, chatting, etc)

Each half hour has a note area where I note what I did.
The first column has a totals box to make checking my “Quickgraph” for accuracy easier when counting productive and unproductive blocks.
There’s a box to keep track of cups of coffee with counter lines.
There’s a “Day Totals” box for quick review at the end of the week/month/etc.
And some space to doodle.
It’s a little basic level time accounting, to keep me actively working on my life goals through the day.

If you get some use out of it, or have some questions, let me know. :)

"The Future is Getting Free"

You told us there’s no tomorrow
You already sold it today
and you wonder why 
we don’t plan for the future

You told us we can never win
the rules are made for you
and you wonder why
we don’t play your games

You say we’re just lost and losers
but we know, oh we know
This is our time, this is our world
and you are fading away
We won’t sell tomorrow
and we sure as hell won’t sell today
We’re not lost or losers
We know right where we are
in our world, in our time
and you are fading away

We are sorry to see you go
but you are on your way
This is our time, this is our world
and you are fading away

You said there’s no tomorrow
but we own tomorrow
and we own today
We’re not lost or losers
We know right where we are
in our world, in our time
and you are fading away

You told us there’s no tomorrow
You told us we can never win
You said we’re just lost and losers
But this is our time, this is our world
and you are fading away
and you are fading away

and you are fading away

My dad taught me to wrap gaffers tape around all of my bag straps because you never know when you’ll need some for a quick repair. (at Cavendish)
