slowing down and smelling flowers

Every so often I need to be reminded to “stop and smell the roses.” Well, today I’m not near any roses so daffodils will have to do. On sunny, warm Saturday afternoons like today has been, it is important to take in these sights, sounds, smells and even feelings. By the way, I smell someone grilling nearby and I’m feeling calm with a twist of pensive reflections.

Today, I decided to spend some time at the park with Alice while enjoying some relaxing music. John Legend is on call at the moment. Normally I take a lap around the pond on foot, but I’m just going to sit and admire. My next step would be to take over a bench… but alas, I forgot my earphones yet again. No worries, that’s what Alice is for.

Another important thing to note while I bask in this beauty: my mind is pretty free. I’m not concerned with anything or anyone. It’s nice. Just as quickly as I realized this, tiny buggy things attacked Alice, forcing me to roll up my windows. Sadness. Could be worse. They could’ve been mosquitos, or bees! Then watch my calmness disappear followed by an intense drive home. Good times, indoob.

    Welcome back! Is this season 2 now? Sterling and Kortney return from hiatus but there's not enough time to talk about all the things that happened in the last few months or years since the last episode. Some of those things they don't have enough time to talk about include HBO Max, Disney+, Heaven's Gate, Tenet, Letter Kenny, and more. Sterlin […]

    Sterling invites Vilissa, Janelle, Neysha, and Nick to join him and Kortney for a special live episode discussing the regular nonsense such as appearing (and later disappearing) mirror monoliths in the desert. Sterling also asks a series of questions which yields a favorite response of "cotton balls of sheep."  This is also the last episode of 2020 […]

    What is Dreamstorm? We couldn't tell you but it's fascinating and you need to experience what we know of it (watch the YouTube clip here) and if it can help manifest the gingerbread Oreos that Sterling craves. Also, Sterling learns a startling fact about Kortney! Sterling also freaks Kortney out with the rules of the Elevator Game which may or may […]
