A Mercury Retrograde Cocktail of Confusion

Mercury is about to go retrograde. Which means it looks like it’s going backwards but it’s not actually going backwards but it is for astrology. It’s an optical illusion of the mind. Before it goes retrograde it goes through a period of about a week of passing through a shadow phase where misunderstandings, miscommunications, and... Continue Reading →

 A Man Takes A Single Rake to The Beach. And When You Zoom Out And See It… Mind BLOWN.
It only takes a couple of hours once the tide is low enough to create the designs.- Andres Amardos 
For Andres, his art is “more about the process and less about the result.”
Watchout Loud and let me know how YOU feel about it.

How he made such large geomatery: making his beach mural explorations, he uses a rope as a guide so that he can make the geometric patterns.

King Akbar was very fond of Birbal. This made a certain courtier very jealous. Now this courtier always wanted to be chief minister, but this was not possible as Birbal filled that position.  One day Akbar praised Birbal in front of the courtier. This made the courtier very angry and he said that the king praised Birbal unjustly and if Birbal could answer three of his questions, he would accept the fact that Birbal was intelligent.

Immediately Akbar asked Birbal the three questions and informed him that if he could not answer them, he would have to resign as chief minister.

To answer the first question…

Who is the Narcissist? – This is a rant

Brilliant post!
Vividly descriptive and very insightful, a masterpiece of observation of human nature!

Madeline Scribes

 

Let’s pretend you are stuck in a room of about a dozen people and they are all dancing. They are laughing, smiling, having a great time and they are all dancing. Everyone is dancing except for you and that’s because you hate dancing.

You hate everything about dancing.

Winning the One Lovely Blog Award!!

I would like to thank the very lovely and brave Madeline Scribes for nominating my blog for the One Lovely Blog Award.

I love blog award nominations because they are a wonderful way of receiving encouragement – blogging is one of those things you do for yourself first, as you power your blog, but then when what you do touches others it gives you the sort of feedback which is priceless and celebrates who you are just as you are and who others are as they are – and it is also a great way to encourage others – the blogging world is a community and when we support each other we support ourselves.

I love Madeline Scribes’ blog and her writing is beautiful, full of courage and the fire of a truly inspiring soul.

Please check her blog out if you have time and if you haven’t already, and please check out the blogs of her nominees.

I will get around to passing the award on… it may take me a while, but I eventually do what I say I will… eventually (you said that already).

Thank you!

Madeline Scribes
