Five Basic Tools To Bionic Blogger-hood…

“Grace is available for each of us every day – our spiritual daily bread – but we’ve got to remember to ask for it with a grateful heart and not worry about whether there will be enough for tomorrow.” –Sarah Ban Breathnach Road to Bionic Blogger: The distant volcano is soon conquered... Recognizing Grace: Five Basic Tools On the Road to Bionic Blogger… Recently, my good friend, Rose, blogger/writer at What’s My Plaza, sent me a quick note via Facebook.

Divine Knowledge: The Tale of the Magic Tree…

“Said a tree to a man, “My roots are in the deep red earth, and I shall give you of my fruit.” And the man said to the tree, “How alike we are. My roots are also deep in the red earth. And the red earth gives you power to bestow upon me of your fruit, and the red earth teaches me to receive from you with thanksgiving.” Kahlil Gibran Many moons ago, in an ancient village far, far away, when ...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy!

“If you want to be happy, be.” Leo Tolstoy Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it. Groucho Marx I was not your typical happy child. I was shy, serious, bookish actually, and only found happiness when I ...

A change of style and a twist

I haven’t taken part in many of the Writing 101 prompts, to be honest I haven’t written very much at all just recently.  I did take a weeks’ holiday, but mainly it’s work that has just got in the way of me enjoying myself – I’m going to have to either get more organised or magic up some days with a few more hours in them!  I found the latest prompt very interesting however; my post is not really about ...

Inspiration: Grateful for the Quietude…

Spurgeon Inspiration: Grateful for the Quietude... butterfly watching Inspiration: Grateful for the Quietude... fishing Nature is beautiful but most of us are too busy to enjoy it… For every moment we spend caught up in the hustle and bustle of a demanding world, there is a toll ...

Inspiration: A Taste For Balance…

“Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings.” ― Rumi Flavor: (1)Distinctive taste; savor (2) A distinctive yet intangible quality felt to be characteristic of a given thing: “What matters in literature . . . is surely the idiosyncratic, the individual, the flavor or color of a particular human ...

Inspiration: A Shift In Perspective…

“Our passion and principals are constantly in a frenzy, but begin to shift and waver, as we return to reason.” Laurence Sterne Inspiration: A Shift In Perspective... “Humans have the ability to shift perspective. We can experience the world through our senses. Or we can remove ourselves from our senses and experience the world even less directly.

Surrender to Your Nakedness

I’ve kept clear of writing lately opting instead to dip my brush into tiny puddles of primaries and pastels. It’s not that I haven’t felt the urge to write, but rather I’ve grown tired of my own words. For me writing is a reflective vocation where my words spell out the contents of my heart. If my heart is heavy, my words are heavy, and quite frankly I’ve been in such a state of introspection lately that my writing has ...

False Start on NaNoWriMo 2011

Photo image copyright by Meredith Ann Rutter For a few days in November, world-renowned sand sculptors worked their magic at the second annual Siesta Key Crystal Classic Master sand-sculpting competition in Sarasota, FL. Talk about attention to detail. The sculptors had to keep the sand just the right amount of moist during sculpting and had to wield just the right attiudes of angle with their trowels, even as they had to respond with aplomb to curious onlookers’ questions. I was aware ...

Fairness is Overrated…

For the past few decades, the big trend in corporate America has been “pay for performance.” In other words, the more you do on the job or the better your results for the organization – the greater your compensation. The underlying idea of this trend has been a fundamental component of capitalism since its inception. For example, the more a sales representative sells, the higher their bonus. When a professional athlete performs exceptionally on the field, court, track or ice, their pre-negotiated ...

Fearless Floating

Did you ever get an idea and then when you follow through with it it turns out all wrong? “Huh?” You say, screwing your face up into a confused mud puddle. You taste the soup and it’s too salty; you compare the photo to your painting and yours looks like a one dimensional rendition of cartoon meets real world. You date a dream boat only to find out that he has leaks. Not only is he not sea worthy… he’s ...

My Failed Facebook Marriage….

Facebook ended my marriage (sort of).... You probably don’t know this about me, but I’m a sensitive soul….a petite, genteel flower if you will. I drink Celestial Seasonings sleepy-time chamomile tea as a pick-me-up. All of my under garments must be made out of crushed velvet and infused with Downey fabric softener and other anti-chafing agents. Even my toothbrush bristles are made from 100% baby rabbit fur. Suffice to say that I have a delicate constitution. That’s why it’s so difficult for me to (sob) write ...

Book Marketing, Part 2

Retail booksellers are familiar with a great publication called “Shelf Awareness” that gives them current information about the book industry, publishers’ plans for upcoming books, and some of the publicity underway on recently published books. The online magazine provides lots of ideas to help booksellers present the latest to their customers. It is a terrific marketing-support outlet for publishers and booksellers alike. Recently, Shelf Awareness has expanded its venue to include a publication aimed directly at readers. It’s a free e-newsletter ...

Advice From a Clutter Cutter

Michael Hyatt is the consummate “Clutter Cutter” – in other words he knows how to deliver a message that cuts through the clutter to reach a desired audience. I believe all of us have a message and an audience who wants to hear it. To accomplish that goal, I recommend Michael’s brand new book titled Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. I received an advance copy of this book for review and believe so strongly in its message that I’m giving away ...

Governance is for losers

To be a real grown up is to be a tough son of a b.  The demented poor poor moderates are there and not, OK and not, passionless and not, unable to counter all full-sides from the scowling right, the indignant left, those with grit in their soused middle.

Tough, smart, authoritative and demeaning…. the happy hamsters of the middle never see nonsense for nonsense, never show up nonsense for nonsense …. never deal with bratty children or over weened teenagers as bratty children or over weened teenagers.

Who will smack down the smackers… vilify the vilifiers … make trivial the trivializers, demand not plead …. be skeptical not caressing, like governance not rule.

Rule is what is longed for… not long ago and far away.  Governance is for losers.

Dominance Games / Politics…..politics, news, commentary, analysis….

The dumb …… the honored creed. The rancid bastards …… the true…. the thrill…
