Prisoner of Time

Nani’s clone.

My day was a long one. From my waking hour to this point in time it’s been a 14-hour day. By the time I hit the sack, it’ll be a usual 17-hour day. A mixture of work, personal commitments and inspiration working on my website. A mix that locks me in a cell of routines, I struggle to escape!

It’s vicious of course. You’ve been there, done that too I would imagine. We eventually hit the wall, fall exhausted, and the next morning we do it all again. In the American psyche, it’s called perceived productivity. If you’re not perceived to be productive, you’re perceived to be lazy, less, perhaps untouchable in some circles.

Never mind that when I am “unproductive” my mind does neat things. I think about stuff that makes me feel good.

I love dogs. I used to be a devote dog to my pet dog. My pet dog loved me. She and I connected. You know how Spock does his Vulcan thing with his fingers?  My dog and I were so advanced, we could do the Vulcan thing by just looking at each other. Smiling, tongue out, huffing and puffing. Really, just so connected. I strived to be an ideal companion to my pet dog. And she was so devoted, so protective, so fun to be with. Unfortunately, a dog’s life span is shorter than humans. So, well, you know. She’s gone, but I still think about her.

Dog’s are nature’s genetic clones. Since then, I’ve seen many clones of my beloved dog! They’re so blatantly cloned,  I can’t help wonder that without them, civilization would not know about devotion, compassion, patience, understanding, unconditional love. If there is such as thing as living many lives, many lifetimes; I’ve definitely been a dog many times over.

  1. I don’t even know how I stopped up here, but I thought this publish was once good.
    I do not recognise who you might be however definitely
    you are going to a famous blogger in case you are not already.
    Cheers!

  2. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend
    to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thank you!

  3. Thank you all for your kind comments! Wow, your question is very profound! I am sure as all people wanting to create; be it writers, artists, musicians, dancers, oral-story tellers, etc. we all need to be centered and grounded to reach into our creative selves! For me, I prefer solitude. I center myself by removing as many distractions as I can. Noise (natural or artificial) is a major distraction so I try to remove myself from distracting noise. The exception would be “White Noise” such as listening to recordings from actual thunder and rain storms, or water dripping from a bamboo reed into a cold, stone basin. Other distractions could be from work and related deadline pressures.

    The idea is to give yourself time and space to be free of distractions within the realm of creating. Try to avoid spreading yourself too thin by doing too many activities. If you just have too many obligations and commitments, these too may distract you.

    From a relaxed state, you want to enter a state of spontaneity! You want your creativity to emerge, flow, weave in and out, up and down, around and around in free-flowing oscillating cycles! Whether you are forming thoughts from mental images or images from vibrant paint colors or persuasive brush strokes, you experiment spontaneously.

    I cannot describe every creative persons energy but I do know, each would rather direct such energies to beautiful outcomes.

    The downside: Unfortunately, not everyone understands why creative people require their own time and space to be alone to create. Not everyone will understand how or why you spend hours upon hours engaging, many times past the point of exhaustion. Some people may misconstrue your wanting solitude as being stand-offish or anti-social but actually, when you’re creating, you’re really working. You’re really happy! It’s all on a different plane! Also, drink a lot of fresh water.

  18. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100 sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

  19. certainly like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few
    of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I
    in finding it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I’ll
    surely come again again.

  20. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.

    But think about if you added some great pictures or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with pics and videos, this website could certainly be one of the most
    beneficial in its niche. Very good blog!

  21. Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures
    aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet
    browsers and both show the same results.

  22. Aloha Benefits of Coconut Oil!
    Thank you for the heads up. I believe this is an issue for the Host engine I am using, and I do hope it will be addressed, however not being a technical wizard, I’m not able to say how soon this can be resolved.
    Thank you for letting me know.

  23. I do believe all the concepts you have introduced in your post.

    They’re really convincing and can definitely work.
    Still, the posts are very short for beginners. May you please lengthen them a little from next
    time? Thank you for the post.

  24. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
