Do you know how difficult it was to pick something that I liked about my character and set it in stone as something to encourage and practice for a week? I am sooooooooo much better at picking something I do not like and need to change.

What I picked (which is my business) is something that while I have it in spades and it is a very good thing, it is not something that I allow myself to do in all areas of my life. And that is the key word here, ‘allow.’ I didn’t really see that so clearly until I settled on this certain something as my new found companion for the week.

But it is funny the already subtle shift in my thinking. I find myself reminding myself that I am a certain way as I encounter situations where i usually don’t let myself be like that.

Oh so cryptic.

And the reading thing, and small…meditation thing, funny too that I am reaching for that so easily rather than my usually habitual diet of news and gloom. Oh I still read that today, but it took all of two seconds to remind myself to do the other first.

Blogging, however, is like pulling teeth. I have really gotten into the habit of skipping a day or two between posts. Ooops.

its all fun and games until you have to do something that you committed to doing that also cannot be done “on the fly” and requires you sit, commit and give some time to it.

and basically, it has been way hot and way humid. Earl looks like it is coming this way, and my brain power is floating somewhere down around nil….but I am holding to my commitment and showing up

and ooooohhhhhhh I just had an idea 🙂


first one of the day


and also my excuse to stop torturing both of us and go outside

About cassandratribe

"There are few artists that can do what Cassandra Tribe does. Whether with her poetry, her videos or her blog, Cassandra examines the truths that most of us can never come close to realizing and shows it for what it is, both beautiful and frightening at the same time. She exposes our inner-most workings like the cross-section of a powerful but flawed machine, our gears and springs, nuts and bolts removed and laid out before us. She is a true artist. Her new video, Requiem for a God, is the latest example of Cassandra's willingness to tear open and examine the very things that make us human. Shooting the film entirely by herself, she also eliminates all the little excuses we come up with to keep us from ourselves and our truth. You see, even when she's not trying to be, Cassandra Tribe is a beacon of truth and humanity in this darkest of worlds." (Michael E. Quigg, The Culture Network, June 2009)
