I Don’t Need Help

Seriously ... maybe.

Well, that's patently false. I need all the help I can get.

I mean, I'm going to take on more than any human could do.

And although I'm a super human, it's because I've got an open ended list of things to get done that it looks like I'm capable of so much.

Is this confusing?

It's like this, there are people who have lists of ten or twenty things...

Logic Loop Error

It's simple, really ...

I'm not sure if I've told you all this before, but at one time I was actually a computer programmer.

I learned a lot when I went to college to become a computer programmer, and one of those things was that there are two "M's" in programmer.

But I also learned some pretty neat stuff about instructions and how they need to be explicit in order for errors not to occur.

I...

In A Swirl! It’s About Comfort

Looks painful, right?

Have you ever put three or more ingredients together in a bowl and watched as the mixing begins?

There's a point at which any given part of the contents looks like all the other parts, and yet each area is unique and different, swirled together yet still in separate streaks, no two points alike, yet all are familiar looking in the mess of it.

And that's kind of what I gravitate towards,...

Eye See

An interesting view point ...

I'm beginning to believe that if you have ADHD, you have vision trouble.

And yes, I'm talking about an inability to see visible light as clearly or as accurately as others do, not an inability to understand things ...

Although that's also an issue, am I right? But another day for that, eh?

This is about our eye sight.

Who are you?

Good question, eh?

It's Friday, and I'm busy. Nothing new in that, right?

It's actually Black Friday though and, although I live in Canada and in a part of the country where crazy lineups at Walmart before they open are twelve people, I'm not impervious to the distraction this day brings.

I am, after all, the Man of Distraction! (You need to turn the echo and reverb on on your computer or phone when you...

Now See Here …

I've got this ...

My mind works rather quickly in many ways. But sadly, because it covers ground so fast, it tends to squander that ability by rapidly cycling through many thoughts that are a waste of time.

I can be cheerfully starting some task, say in the kitchen, that requires counter space. And I'll pick up something in my way that I could just put someplace else and...

Yesterday, All My Troubles Seemed …

All the power ... when it's charged

Do you like the Beatles' music? I do.

And I love the way their titles and first lines often suddenly have new meaning for me when taken out of context.

Take that "Yesterday" song for instance, yesterday that song was playing in my head. Because yesterday was the day after the day that I had no troubles. And yesterday was the day the troubles came.

And the trouble was...

There Are People …

People ...

There are people who live in houses that look like magazine photos. That's not me.

There are people who have their future plotted out perfectly. And if things go differently, they know exactly what their plan "B" is. That's not me.

There are people who buy a book and when they're done reading it they donate it to the thrift store or a charity book sale or they take it to the second...
