Ok, so a new toy

So I bought myself a Christmas present: an iPad. I told myself it was needed for my web work, but who am I fooling? It is for that since I need to be able to check web designs, but it is also a seriously cool new toy, and I’m really enjoying it.

Warm Wishes for the New Year

Sitting here drinking a good bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and thinking about the past year, it has, at the very least, been interesting, and sadly for many very depressing given the economy. My friend Frank DeMarco’s guys upstairs are fond of saying , “all is well, all is always well,” but when those of us down here in the swamp are ass-deep in alligators, sometimes that just elicits a “WTF are are you babbling about?” It is sometimes (most times?) difficult to see that from down here when things appear to be going sooooo wrong.

The thing is, it is true. Shifts, or shit, happens, that is part of life really. The only thing we can do is to remain centered and work on making our life work, because we are, going forward, going to get precious little help from those currently in charge here in the physical. More to come on this subject soon.

In the meantime, Happy, happy, joy, joy.

Two Years in Paradise and Winter Solstice Wishes

SantaI’m sitting here tonight celebrating two events. One is the second anniversary of my moving to Hawaii, and of course the second is Winter Solstice.

December 22 2009, I arrived  “home” to Hawai’i Island and it has been an incredible adventure. At times it seems like just yesterday I stepped off the plane, but at other times it is hard to remember being anywhere else. My friend Frank DeMarco asked if it was 4 or 5 years since I had moved to Hawai’i, so it isn’t just me apparently.

Winter Solstice is a time of reflection and sitting here tonight my thoughts can’t help but turn toward what the coming years will bring, but crystal balls are notoriously foggy and as Yogi Berra said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”.  I’m not even up on current events lately since I don’t watch TV and only occasionally look at headlines on the internet. There are, of course, no shortage of dire predictions about the future, and some of it may very well be true to some degree, but  I’m simply not going to focus on those things and lend my energies to them. In the latest SharedWidom newsletter, Hank Wesselman said:

No matter what happens over the next several years, we’ll be at our best if we are grounded and heart-centered.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

To all my countless two or three readers that still stop by (ok, and everyone else too) I wish all of you the happiest of holidays and love and happiness in the new year, come what may.

Author and friend Frank DeMarco on Coast to Coast AM

My good friend, author and publisher Frank DeMarco, will be on Coast to Coast AM this next week discussing his newest book, The Cosmic Internet. The Cosmic Internet follows The Sphere and the Hologram and chronicles his continuing interactions and discussions with a group of non-physical entities that he simply refers to as “the guys upstairs.”

You can read more about the books by clicking the links above, and you can find out more about the Coast to Coast AM interview, including times and dates, on the Hologram Books website.
