Loose as a Goose

I think I’m right on time being fashionably late… for me at least. *cringes @ the word exercise*

So, let’s see what this loosening up is all about, Alfie.

So here we go! Here’s a “loosening up” exercise from Allen’s book just to get your creative juices flowing. How do you see yourself? Has your perspective of yourself changed over the last year? Have you EVER come into a new understanding of yourself? If so, what precipitated it?

Hmmmm… How do I see myself. With my eyes and through my eyes, this time without rose colored glasses. At the moment, being serious, I see myself as a mess. It happens. There’s good times, and there’s bad times. Wasn’t that the beginning of a book? Oh, wait, that’s “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,” TALE OF TWO CITIES. And believe me, that wasn’t pulled out of my head… I turned to the librarian, and he was Hubby on the spot, with a prompt answer.

And isn’t it true… it IS the best of times, after all I made it to now, and that’s pretty fucking good. It also is the worst of times, being as I’m two years more neurotic, in the middle of this blasted cold, which, I may add, was one of those things the weather people got wrong, once again. I’m crotchity, whiny, pissed off, and pouting; and those are the good times. The bad times feel like The Walking Dead, truth be told.

“Has my perspective of myself changed over the last year?” No. Seriously, this has been my perspective for the last 3 score; (See “The Gettysburg Address”). I’ve actually never thought of myself in terms of scores, but it’s new and I can actually use it and maybe confuse some of the young whipper snappers…

Lastly: Have I EVER come into a new understanding of myself?

Over the years, I’ve come to realize new things, through my own evolution. I think that is a natural process. What precipitated these new understandings was experiencing life with all it’s nuances.

    So glad you got it all figured out! But I wanted to hear why each color was special to you! I had look a mani wheel to see what it was. AND I, too, am fascinated with Machu Picchu. Just started reading The City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston. It’s a chronicle of his on a team which found that city. SO interesting!

      Oh shoot… didn’t pick up on the why of colors.. Will have to go in and give a response to that part. I’ve always had a thing for Machu Picchu… and ruins in general! That book, title alone, sounds interesting. Cappy wants me to get it and read it to him lol

      I first saw a mani wheel in the opening of a video on Buddhism, and the wheels were huge. In the opening sequence, it shows a woman going down a row of wheels, and spinning them, each in turn. I definitely would like to have that in my back yard; but I had to get the small one, and I spin it every morning while at breakfast.

    Fascinating post on things that interest you. Machu Picchu is something that has fascinated me as well. I’ve always wanted to go and hope to some day.
