Identity and Lifespan
TOTAL MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE TO THE RESCUE? Total medical knowledge, thanks to the Internet of Things, is now doubling every 73 days. Consider that as recently as 1950 it had taken 50 years for this doubling. A millennium ago, it took, well, a millennium. But today, our lifespan is extending at an unprecedented rate, thanks to medical science.
So Far, So Good On Vocal
Introduction 1800 Stories This week I have passed a couple of milestones on Vocal. I won't be sharing this in the Facebook groups. I really did not expect this to happen but the Shane MacGowantribute below added 170 reads to help me get over the the forty thousand reads. I think those reads were also the reason it got a Top Story.
I know that you're waiting for me like a dog, but have some patience for the part of me that's lost - David Kushner, Mr Forgettable.
An Unexpected Phone Call
There is nothing more joyous than starting your day in the right way. I don't have work today but I do have a mammogram later, which I don't think anyone will ever say is something to look forward to. However, I am not the sort of person to let the prospect of an uncomfortable boob squashing set the tone of her day as this appointment is just a part of it.
Perseverance Pays Proficiency
Whew! The first week of NaNo is over, and you've either developed the worst case of carpal tunnel known to mankind, or you feel like good ol’ Charlie Brown’s doppelgänger; like no matter how hard you try, you just can’t win. Most likely, you’re somewhere in between.
How to Change Your Self-Image
Disclaimer: To all who want to comment, "your self worth should come within," please refrain. It's not an overnight process & internalized criticisms skew our thoughts. Seeing the reality that you are loved is a step towards increasing your self worth.
I Only Allow That Which Is Good Into My Life
I only allow that which is good into my life... This is true for me...now. It took me a long time to get to a point in which I can say, I only allow what is good into my life. I spent a long time allowing things that were not good for me into my life. So long in fact, that I did not know how to filter the bad out. Or that I even could filter out the bad. I had no clue that I could choose what came into my life.
The Small Stuff
Grab a coffee (or tea) and a moment and have a read because this is a bit of a long one, which was unexpected. Come with me into the small stuff - the detritus of Life - as I speculate on why it's as important (if not more so) than the big stuff.
Campaign for the Reality of Birds
They say that a bird in the hand is greater than (or equal to) two in the bush; so who am I to argue with proverbial maxims? Nobody should argue with proverbial maxims, because they are all completely true.
A conversation between Motivation and Creativity
On a bright and beautiful sunlit morning's eve, two heartfelt realities faced each other joyfully. Hope filled their souls as they sat on this peace filled daylight lit balcony. Both had come here early, to this lovely place, fully expecting greatness to pour from their fingertips, as they prepared to compose and entice fanciful creations of pure, lucid, intoxicating awe and wonderment.
Well, Whadaya Know - the Big Five-Oh (Oh, Oh)
What I'm Doing Here The subject of Vocal milestones came up in a comments conversation with my friend across the pond, Paul Stewart a few days ago. In that discussion, we both mentioned that we had one "right around the corner." Neither of us gave anything away at the time, but I'm going to put mine out there today, and I'm late in doing so.
The Secret to Achieving Your Goals: Don't Tell Anyone
OK... Want to hear a whacky theory that will change the way you view life? Of course you do, that's why you're reading. It’s a simple idea that I’m going to make even more simple by using cartoons, just like a very serious person would do in a Ph.D. paper. Probably.
