Here be my tweet for March 2013, and not dragons. It is about appreciating silence, and not filling it in with noise. It’s a daunting challenge, because for me, my brain is a noisy, noisy thinking machine. When I don’t get a response to a message or an “ACK” to something I’ve tried to say, I create outcomes in my head for why there is silence. Maybe my breath smells or I said too much or I said too little or and so on. But it’s silly to do that, because I’ll never know why without actually receiving an “ACK”. It’s as if I pursue where a paper plane flew when I threw from the top of K2, and I don’t let the view imbue true roo.
Whoever got the John Cage reference in the tweet gets +10 points.
Love in March,
Here you’ll find a link to my February 2013 tweet. It is about thinking that you did something wrong, made a mess, but realizing that if you hadn’t acted you’d probably feel worse. It’s hard to say how you would feel or wouldn’t feel in another parallel universe, but maybe someday we’ll find a way to squeeze higher dimensional branes together and take a peek at ourselves in other universes. I’m going to start a copyright on LookingGlass©, the IP that allows this to happen.
This is my tweet for January 2013. It is about how I am The Grinch, and I learned to love my life last year, hoping to learn to love even more this year.
Remember, we made it through the end of the world, so 2013 can be anything we want it to be, even all Mad Max if we so desire.
Here is my tweet for the month of December 2012. It’s about the end of the world, which some people speculate will happen this month. I don’t think this will happen, and some smart folks agree with me, but there’s a poesy to imagining yourself as one of the last humans on Earth.
The video isn’t related, but the last words of the song are. Have a listen.
I only write on Twitter once a month, and in the form of haiku. It’s so infrequent I can use real estate on this blog to alert you when I update on Twitter.
This is my tweet for November 2012. It’s about someone I saw recently and I’m very glad I did.
