How Using Meditation Can Relieve and Decrease Loneliness

“Loneliness is just a word, So I’ve been told. Loneliness becomes a world, that’s very cold.” Chicago Loneliness is an increasing symptom of modern life. As people have become more connected by technology, there’s less time to stay connected with friends and loved ones in real-time. That can lead to emotional exhaustion and burnout.

Relationships

I have been married twice and known many beautiful women. For most of the last decade I have been happy to live alone. Selfish? Yet recently I met someone. And things feel like they are changing. The way my thoughts have gone bring me back to a song from Jethro Tull. I must have boughtContinue reading “Relationships”

Heading into the weekend with some old ideas

I think this album came out in 1973 and I have loved it ever since.  I have been round the world since then, raised a family, been married twice, work as a teacher, a salesman, a retailer, a farm hand, and a Nuclear Physicist. But still I come back to some of my teenage music.Continue reading “Heading into the weekend with some old ideas”

Broken Heart too.

Palpitations thrusting love in the limelight; Made it hard, to sleep last night? One demands sex; the go-to man she calls me. One demands a kiss-a temptation easily avoided selfish woman.

Lazy Sunday Afternoon; Waiting! Waiting for You! Another girl, Another City, Another delay. “I fought with my sister – sorry darling.” Patient man, paying penance perhaps prolonging painful parting. Yet she comes, walking in glowing delight; Waking my breaking heart to new – Old feelings of love and respect and affection and two cats inContinue reading “Love – by Rumi and Otway.”

They sat with ankles and toes dipping inContinue reading “The Pool on the Hill – Seize the Son going down.”

Chapter 7 -At the sign of the Slug and Rider.

The afternoon wore on and the Sun sank her heavy head toward the horizon. In a twirl of mysticism the Sun sang, and  she wants us all to know that she gets tired too and is glad of the night so she can rest. The quartet trudged south though still in high spirits. They wereContinue reading “Chapter 7 -At the sign of the Slug and Rider.”

The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.

So there I was in Almaty! In love? Friends though she was quite a tease. We were each dating separately but occasionally went out together. Definitely in the friend zone with this beautiful young lady. Cést la vie! Oh yes we went to a French restaurant as she sometimes worked there; sometimes we ate there.Continue reading “The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.”
