45 Things I learned in 45 Years of Living

How old are You?

Loaded question, huh??

Some do not feel comfortable divulging this kind of information.

Personally, I don't mine. I turned 45 on the 25th. (That's my calendar age/chronological age.)

What's my biological age?

What age is my life experience?

Emotional, mental, spiritual or intellectual age/experience: how do you put an age to any of that?!?

Age is tough to measure like inner person growth. One can "approximately" measure (aka guess) with some accuracy my height: 5'" or estimate my...

Partners Communicating: Tactfully

“I much prefer the sharpest criticism of a single intelligent man to the thoughtless approval of the masses.” Johannes Kepler

Kepler's got a point, eh?!  He had a few. "Galileo, Kepler, and Newton proved that matter is governed by rational laws."
Scientifically speaking, we use incorrect terms when we refer to “sunrise” and “sunset.” But in everyday speech, these words are both acceptable and accurate, when we keep in mind our terrestrial perspective. ~excerpted...

Partners Communicating: Commendation and Counsel Compassionately

Communication is essential for life.

Our eyes communicate information, our ears, our nose, our mouth. All senses communicate simultaneously.

Communication is a learning process aka giving and receiving process.

A smile :) or a frown :(  can communicate much to the world/fragile-life around us. When we frown, do we get a frown back? When we smile, do we get a smile back?
Positive Communication Giving is Positive Communication Receiving!

Opening Up Options

Exploring options is comforting (to me). Sometimes we are faced with seemingly either/or choices.

Random Miscellania about…Nothing?

's a cold morning for us Floridians. Where's my cup of tea? (Where are my socks?!) Why do I constantly misplace my tea and never finish a hot cup?! Oh, there it tea. "Hey Kid, (L-P) can you please nuke it for Thanks honey bunny!"

My breakfast: brain or body? Body a couple bites of yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Real healthy, eh? (oh, and a couple bites of a wheat English muffin.) Slept...

The Sun is shining where You are or it's not.

What will you do?

What will I do?

As Partners and BFL: breathing-fragile-life inhabiting our particular ecosystems and/or emotional climates in which we dwell and/or are do we find contentment? How do we find satisfaction? Especially if/when things don't seem to being going our way or working out as we anticipated or desired? Will we become positive? Or will we be negative?...
