WHELMED

WHELMED

I’ve been whelmed the last few days.  Not ‘overwhelmed’.  Just whelmed.  So fully preoccupied with responsibilities and deadlines that gears creaked to a halt and everything creative or clever just quit.  Stopped.  Unproductive as a government shut down. In the dictionary ‘whelm’ is described as a transitive verb 1: to turn (as a dish or vessel) upside down usually to cover something; cover or engulf completely with usually disastrous effect. 2: to overcome in thought or feeling Disastrous effect.  That’s… Read More

THE FROGS THEY ARE A LEAPING

THE FROGS THEY ARE A LEAPING

  There is a quote, attributed (as is often the case these days) to many people. The meta message is, at the start of each day swallow your big frogs first and then the rest of the day will hopefully be easy. Frogs in this case being your big issues, large tasks, most likely the things we would rather put off.

TIME

TIME

  “Time was a friend. Back when I was young. And summer was forever. Time.  Good was your first name.  Every day a lesson.  With something new to learn.” I wrote those words when I was in my early thirties. They are lyrics from a song I wrote with Roger Nichols.

CALM IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS

CALM IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS

We are all working on calming down; at least I’m assuming we are. I know I am.  I’m trying to minimize those cortisol surging moments, many of which I bring on myself. It’s easy being calm in when all is smooth and serene, It’s easy being calm when the world isn’t yelling in your ear.   But how about in the midst of the nerve wracking, hand ringing, sometimes almost rage inducing life scenarios? I’m not talking about the big stuff.… Read More
