    I'm a ramblin' guy...
    The following post makes indiscriminate use of the following lingual fictions:
    "Is", "Are"and "Never"

    Believe it or not.

    Hello to any and all, I've just finished updating my friends list. This has entailed many additions from wilson_lizard's friends list. I hope to make it around to read a little more often and keep up on what I hear bits and tantalizing pieces of as it is.
    More retooling to come... read you all later.

    Week of June 3
    Copyright 2004 by Rob Brezsny

    ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is a Native American nation that
    white people call the Winnebago. The tribe's members refer to
    themselves, however, as the Hotcâgara. That's your first metaphorical
    clue for the week, Aries. You should firmly correct anyone who misnames
    or misidentifies you. Here's another tip, courtesy of the Hotcâgara. In
    their origin myth, the great god Earthmaker wakes up to realize he is the
    only being in the universe. In his abysmal loneliness, he weeps. His tears
    become the oceans and rivers and lakes of our world. I suspect that the
    tears you cry in the coming week will also, like Earthmaker's, be
    profoundly creative.

    Jolly good fun
    Here I am breaking my long non-posting streak!
    I owe the inspiration to inanna and winged_elf for thier wonderful hospitality.
    Kiddo and I made the trip to Seattle yesterday and did the childrens' museum for a few hours w/ inanna and her little 'uns (I'm uncertain to thier lj known-ases), after which we dropped the kids off with a recently-returned-from-an-obviously-shitty-day winged_elf (Bless his Very Soul!) Thus freed, D and I had a lovely time out. Good coffee, Good company, Good talk. Thanks again you guys.

    Your Brain Usage Profile

    Auditory : 56%
    Visual : 43%
    Left : 53%
    Right : 46%

    Zanzibar, you are mildly left-hemisphere dominant while showing a slight preference for auditory processing. This overall combination seems to indicate a well-working blend of logic and judgment and organization, with sufficient intuition, perception and creativity to balance that dominance.

    You will at times experience conflict between how you feel and what you think which will generally be resolved in favor of what you think. You will find yourself interested in the practical applications of whatever material you have learned or whatever situation you face and will retain the ability to refine whatever knowledge you possess or aspects of whatever position you are in.

    By and large, you will orient yourself toward intellectual activities and structure. Though not rigid, you will schedule yourself, plan, and focus on routine and continuity of operations, rather than on changes and disruptions

    When changes or disruptions occur, you are likely to consider first how to ensure that such disruptions do The same balance is reflected in your sensory preference. You will tend to be reflective and measured in your interaction style. For the most part, you will be considered objective without being cold and goal-oriented while retaining the capacity to listen to others.

    Preferentially you learn by listening and maintaining significant internal dialogues with yourself. Nevertheless, you have sufficient visualization capabilities to benefit from using graphs, charts, doodles, or even body movement to enhance your comprehension and memory.

    To the extent that you are even implicitly aware of your hemispheric dominance and sensory style, you will feel most comfortable in those arenas which emphasize verbal skills and logic. Teaching, law, and science are those that stand out among the professions, along with technical sales and management.

    Getting around
    Hi to anyone who might get this in their reading material. I'm going to try to post a little more regularly and start commenting on journals of the folks I read. Today I should be writing a list of things to get in order to begin teaching classes in Aberdeen this September. I received an invitation from my friend and mentor MP to use her space and contacts for the purpose so it's all up to me now. Yeeex. If I get anything good down, I'll post anything I think is worthy later-on

    It's been a long time since I've done anything here but I'd like to make thanks for the lovely trip we had to Seattle last week to visit Wingedelf and Damashita. I had a great time and I look forward to seeing you all again! :)

    notes on/in water
    I was given a link to a page talking about a phenomenon that I've seen before in an alternative culture magazine two years ago. It involves the crystal structure displayed by water that has been exposed in various ways to human influence (prayer, music, and pollution as examples). The pictures are beautiful and thought provoking.
    Here is the site with pictures.
    The other article I saw suggested that it was the crystal patterns that were more essential for body maintenance than just the h2o molecules themselves.
    Just thinking about the nature of thought and what the way the water responds to focused intent says about our ability to *feel* what other organisms are thinking and feeling. It seems a very clear picture of how we project our selves into and onto our surroundings, frequently without any intent in doing so.
    With the awareness of one's effect on the reality of others comes the direct experience of karma as the actions and thoughts of the individual are reflected in any organic (water based) materials or beings in the area. To say nothing of what others emotions and thoughts and actions do to our own functioning. It quickly becomes apparent that our separation as individual life is not a clean matter and is much more like the division between the cells of a tissue that shares function. The actions and vibrations of the single cell ripple and can propagate through the entire system.
    All emotion serves noble purpose to humanity.
    What comes is a surprise.
    Consciously vibrate love to all life.

    We just got back from our latest trip and holy moly, I'm getting apointments left and right. Satisfying, but dificult considering it is looking like we are going to have to stay in one place more than we were previously planning for with a new possibility of putting Kiddo into school. It makes it harder to leave when my private practice is starting to really pick-up. Oh well, I guess these are the prices of success at this point. Still, I'm happy with the work and things will continue in this vein no matter where we wind up settling, and my oh my, Oregon was beautiful!

    Expectation as Obstacle
    This morning in a conversation with wilson_lizard, it occured to me that the problems I'd experienced with other relationships had all fundimentally stemmed from having and expectation, hope or 'goal' for the relationship going in. For the most part, my relationships were not highly communicative, but I can only assume that my girlfriends had their own agendas which didn't mesh with what I was after (sex). Please forgive me, I was young and inconsiderate at the time.
    When I met WL, she had no agendas besides looking for sex for a night. My hang up that had made it difficult to see anything but the undiscussed quest for sex in my previous relationships was effectively defused. This allowed for the room in my attention to actually get to know her as a person and talk with her about sex.
    I realize that it was only because WL was comfortable and communicative that this was possible (not to mention that she enjoyed and wanted to have sex), and maybe it was was the difference of dating women instead of girls, but it seems to me that if we as humans didn't couple so much as a way of achiveing goals and more for simple personal or sexual chemistry, success would not be as rare in long term relationships.

    Moooving forward toward coward retreat fully aware capable newsworthy plagarist phenucian -all proof eh? in the frying pan to the eventual upswing. I'd like to feel as in a tribe of council with many of my elders besides, weather id is spring timing or not. True notions of insipiration are separate from usual accounts of prearambling.

    The Rainbow Bridge
    This morning, I drove to McCleary to work with my dear Friend and Mentor M. She was injured in a mva some months ago. She has always been extremely supportive in my efforts as a bodyworker and encouraging of my taking in new directions. The appointment was a short notice sort of a deal, but i have made it clear that my work is at her disposal if needed.
    As I drove over the crest of the hill just outside our house, a faint tint of a rainbow stained the clouds at the horizon roughly marking the direction of my travel. As i neared town, the clouds behind me cleared for the rising Sun and before me a low, complete arch made itself visible. The intensity of color at the feet of the 'bow was like few I've ever seen.
    I had to hoot and howl for that one.

    After turning off the main route to Olympia into the basin that nestles the casino into its little magic pocket by the highway, I was wittness to something I've never encountered before today. The "end" of another rainbow (one of many today) actually appeared below the horizon from my perspective driving along the bottom of the short valley. colors were visible between me and things as close as a roadside espresso stand. The pale, washed effect of the refraction appeared to fill the bowl of the landscape as i passed through Into the trees of the foothills.

    The session was very good and has left me feeling confident and ready to rock.

    Hi all,
    I'm new to the live journal thing, and at the encouragement of my wife, I am entering the fray. Largely to take part in the discussions in this group. I have been married in an established poly relationship for 9 years ( we've been together for 13). Polyamory is something my wife, K brought to the table when we first started dating. At the time, it was a welcome change from the totally unexamined, robot-relationships I had had previously. K was and remains the most straight-forward communicator I've ever known when it comes to relationships.
    Well basically, the open side of our relationship has been mostly K's activity, as I'm pretty content to interact with her most of the time and just enjoy the conceptual space. Lately though it has been occurring to me just how slim the chance of meeting someone who fits in to criteria of our rules for outside partnership. Definitely different boats for women and men in this situation.

    Currently, I seem to be embroiled in a period of change where things that were very deep down in my original imprints are surfacing and being examinable and dealable. Good stuff, got to recomend EMDR to all I know. And a good massage.
