My Beginning: Bio Feedback

Have you ever tried Bio Feedback? Back in my early 20’s (seems a lifetime ago) I was really interested in the power of the mind and still am to this day. I used to read a science mag (forget the name now) and I read an article on bio feedback. It...

Time to take up arms

There is too much violence and theft happening these days. The Police say, leave it to them,they are the law. They finally arrive and usually it's too late (they cant be every where), and the offenders are long gone.   I did a security course...

Bloody Aussie Government

Hi guys, I usually dont talk about politics in general. But if you know what is happening here in Australia....................HERE WE GO AGAIN. The people vote for one person........those within kick Kevin Rudd out and Julia Gillard...

The Inner Sanctum

Hi guys, this is somehing I made a few months ago but thought I would repost and share again. Hope you enjoy it.    Welcome to the inner sanctum of your mind. This is the place where thoughts and memories are locked away. Many are afraid to...

When it all goes pear shaped

  We go about our lives in an orderly fashion. We attend our job on a daily basis and adhere to the policies and procedures that are set out for us. The Police enforce law and order and patrol the areas and assist with any disturbances. There is a...

remember to breathe

Its such a simple thing to do, but when we are stressed we tend to hold our breath. When I was first an acting manager,  I made a woodburning sign and hung it on the wall above my desk that said exactly that, "Remember to breathe".............it...

Say What?

  What I look for is “Original thought”. Words that question our very existence and may even pull apart the structures that binds us all together. Not talking about anarchy, I’m talking about the restrictions and rules of society. Everything has...

Till Death do us part

  I work with elderly people and I am fortunate to see many old couples that are still happily married and still trying to live at home. The place that I work at allows me to work within the community and visit these homes to assist people where...

Dream Lover

I am thankful that I have found my live Dream lover. It took some 34 years, but we found each other. Deb and I have been married for 9 years now and I am grateful that we found each other.   We wake and talk about our dreams, no matter how...

Thinking outside of the square

  Once upon a time………………when I went to high school, there was this one fellow who was a master at arm wrestling. He was a year younger than me, but he could beat the seniors and some very strong lads. I came to know this fellow, his name was...

They whom dare to dream

  Thinking back to the earlier days when people were told the Earth was flat and you would sail off the edge of the world. The church dictated as to what was right and wrong. Fear was used as a controlling factor. Any one that challenged “the...

Teenage Dilemma

I wrote this little poem...actually, I started singing it. It started as a song and changed it into a poem. Teenagers can be difficult at the best of the times....especialy when they are asked to help around the house....all of a sudden, they are...

Christmas - A time for some to feel lonelier than ever

  For some of us, we are very lucky to be surrounded by family that love us and we can share special moments. We know that we are loved and we can embrace those we hold dearly. On the flipside, there are people that don’t have any family, have been...

Our bodies are timeline maps of our lives

  I was looking at my hands and saw a few old scars and marks. We get so used to our bodies that we just ignore these old healed wounds. I started thinking that these old scars and burns etc., map out a timeline through out my life and every one of...

See beyond the words

Not all of us are perfect typers nor do we spell words correctly at times......but that shouldnt take away from the message that they are trying to communicate. There are some that "NEED" that comma to fall in the right place, or for the sentence to...

Little sayings

  We all have a few catch phrases or little sayings that may blurt out from time to time. I do warn you in advance that these are a bit rough and crass at times. Some of the ones that I love to use are:   ·         “Back to back they faced...

The late night performer

  We all have heard about the phantom of the opera, I loved the musical, still have the vinyl.    I have heard of a story about a man that used to recite poetry and practice various plays or drama that he had created and used to perform these...

WTF

  Unusual to start my ramblings this way but bugger it, we are all human. I am amazed at how often people can talk without really saying anything at all. Here’s an example for you….. and this is an actual conversation or rather “statement” that was...

Funeral plan ads

  Through an average day during peak times on T.V there are constant ads for funeral plans. These will appear on every ad in-between peoples shows that they regularly watch.    I work with the elderly in their homes in the community and they...

A shark's perspective

  I love Australia, great beaches and most of the population is based around the coastline. Which means……they love to swim. We know that they know that we are out there but still the cheeky buggers try to tease us. Out of the water they may be top...

Instant Gratification

  When I look around I see a lot of youths wanting instant gratification.   “Could you pay me now and I “promise” that I will mow the grass when I get home”.   Sure enough, the parent gives them the cash, they go off and have a good...

Escape

When I was 15 I finished school and started working, often, I was working away from home with out friends or family and I was away for months at a time. These were lonely times, sure, i made friends, but missed family and friends deeply. I was a...

Emotional growth

  Childhood, teenager, adulthood, middle aged and elderly cycles of life. Relationships formed with friends and partners, “enemies” that we encounter along the way. All of it moulding and working towards shaping us into the person we are today. ...
