Clutter of My World

clutter
If you hold on to the clutter of your past
Their may never be room or space for anything new

Overflowing closets

Storage parcels paid on for a decade

The past and all it’s hurts and insecurities

Make for an elusive future

Wind, rain, fire and circumstance destroy possessions

Your mind refuses to let be

What others plainly see

Live and Love your present

It’s a gift

written September 18th 2018

After writing this I had much compassion for my daughter who says she has lost so much in her life.

It also bought me back too the times, I traveled cross country with nay more than a suitcase in my greyhound journey. I had a give away party before leaving. Treasured items I knew would not be making the many miles with me.

Just recently I DE-cluttered my home. So many outdated TV’s, monitors, printers, keyboards and mice, clothes that would never fit me again.

I still have treasured mementos, things that will be found when someone else has the obligation to keep or dispose of.

The time when I am no longer present.
Life is the one thing we need to remind ourselves to cherish and treasure.

Everything else reminds us of things better left in the past.

I am not my stuff;  we are more than our possessions.
Our memories are within us, not within our things.
Holding on to stuff imprisons us; letting go is freeing.

Interesting reads on the subject

Picture the money you pay for your self-storage unit each month.

$10,000 later…

I wonder why persons are willing to pay so much to avoid letting go

“Most likely a thoughtful person who values spending time on your own. You’d rather connect deeply with a few people than have a bunch of slight acquaintances.”

I drive a moped, no mandatory insurance, have a helmet, don’t wear it. My rant is similar. When I am in my lane it is MY lane. Some people think they can just pass me on the left which is such a very stupid move. What if I adjust my wheel the slightest, well that would not be a pretty sight. Than of course those that pass me on the right. Another story. Like seriously. Can anyone possibly be in that much of a hurry too get to the next red light where I will hopefully be waiting too give you a big piece of my mind.

The movie “The Lovers” was released under several different titles, such as “Singularity”, “Time Traveler” and another French title. It was from 2013, and stared Josh Hartnett in the lead role.

It is the tale of an impossible romance, set against the backdrop of the first Anglo-Maratha war across two time periods and continents.

An Indian woman falls deeply in love with an 18th century British office, and in present-day, he has an American marine biologist wife, who is also his beloved.

“if you hold sand too tightly in your hand it will run through your fingers.”

I’m not quite sure why I have a land line and a cell phone. It’s not like I answer either one very often, unless of course it has a special ring tone set up.

Just some Insight

A left turn against a red light can only be made from a one-way street onto a one-way street. Signal and stop for a red traffic light at the marked limit line. If there is no limit line, stop before entering the crosswalk. If there is no crosswalk, stop before entering the intersection.

Turning left at a green light is that pulling forward and turning after the light turns red is absolutely legal, that you have the right of way over traffic facing a red light (as you entered on a green light), and that it’s often times the only way to turn left at an intersection. And that’s pretty much the end of it. Obstruction laws apply when the destined street is full and cannot accommodate additional vehicles (and you end up sitting in the crosswalk or intersection). An officer trying to extend that law to apply to any cars that simply clear the intersection after their light turns red, is in my opinion, in the wrong, and is failing to comprehend the point of the “obstruction” law.

The powers that be in Key West government have decided to rename Key West “Westkey”…with a bar and church on every corner kinda makes sense.

Cyndi’s April Fool’s

I think we should have a April Fool’s day every 1 st of the month.
Like next month May Fool’s day and so on.

Flashback Time:

My dad dyed our little bunnies and the next morning we were not very happy finding different colored dead bunnies. I guess he was thinking of how you dye little chickies. He felt so bad.

Than we had the pleasure of hunting Easter eggs. My mama mistakenly hid than in a copperhead nest. Little slithering babies was scary as crap. Didn’t retrieve those eggs.

They found the cobra that was missing,and he had taken a bite out of crime in the Bronx…

April Fool’s

Some one just said two oceans never meet and that it is salt water and river water that meet.
Well duh,this has been circulating for so long.
Many thought it was edited in Photoshop.

Their are many places where this phenomenon occurs so no one is wrong, it’s Science and we all know how diverse that is.

Hard Boiled Eggs

Add Baking Soda to the Cooking Water

Because older eggs have more alkaline, you shouldn’t add vinegar to the cooking water, though some recipes recommend it. Adding about a teaspoon of baking soda to the cooking water increases the alkalinity, which will make the eggs easier to peel later on.

Cynthia says~ We don’t always need a KING in our lives, but we do need to remember we are always the Queen. Never treat yourself as a pawn in someone else’s game.

If you ‘assume’ something, the universe will provide those things or conditions.

Just a reminder to be gentle with yourself whatever feelings arise.

The feelings are hard enough to endure, so do not add to them by berating yourself.

Self-kindness will get you through.

https://www.scienceofpeople.com/what-is-an-ambivert-quiz/

“Are you an extrovert or introvert?”

Ambivert: Someone who exhibits qualities of both introversion and extroversion.

Why Ambiverts Are Awesome

Many people assume that extroverts are the best at sales, the best leaders and are the most successful at work—WRONG! Adam Grant, an associate professor at Wharton School, analyzed 35 separate studies and found the statistical relationship between extroversion and income was basically zero.

He conducted a personality survey and collected three-month sales records for more than 300 salespeople, both male and female. The people who ranked right in the middle for extroversion and introversion (ambiverts) turned out to be the best salespeople.

Ambiverts pulled in 24 percent more revenue than introverts, and a mind-boggling 32 percent more revenue than extroverts!

Grant guessed that ambiverts seem to strike a balance between the two more extreme personality traits:

“The ambivert advantage stems from the tendency to be assertive and enthusiastic enough to persuade and close, but at the same time, listening carefully to customers and avoiding the appearance of being overly confident or excited,” Grant said.

Life is too short to spend time with toxic people in draining places!
Ambiverts think they have a split personality

I am Blue

the most soothing shade of the spectrum. The color of a clear summer sky or a deep, reflective ocean, blue has traditionally symbolized trust, solitude, and loyalty. Most likely a thoughtful person who values spending some time on your own, you’d rather connect deeply with a few people than have a bunch of slight acquaintances. Luckily, making close friends isn’t that hard, since people are naturally attracted to you — they’re soothed by your calming presence. Cool and collected, you rarely overreact. Instead, you think things through before coming to a decision.

I give Broccoli sprouts to my hamster Chibi. She loves them.

This is my go 2 blender drink:

Ingredients

3 cups filtered water.
1/4 cup hemp seeds or flax seed.
If in a pinch use Wheat Germ
2 cups baby spinach.
1 cup broccoli sprouts, rinsed well.
1 banana, frozen.
1 cup frozen strawberries.
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks.
1 tablespoon cocoa powder.
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 Medjool dates, pitted

Flax seeds come from another ancient plant that (like hemp) was once best known for its fibers. That is just one of the similarities between flax and hemp seed. The protein it provides is another important similarity in that while flax seeds contain less protein than hemp, they provide all of the nine essential amino acids and are considered a complete protein source as a result. Hemp seeds also contain all nine essential amino acids.

Along with being nutritionally similar, flax seeds can also make a good hemp seed substitute in terms of their flavor and texture. Flax seeds bring the flavor of toasted nuts along with a mild crunch that can work in many of the same applications for which hemp seeds would be used. Flax seeds actually provide more than twice the amount of fiber that you would get from hemp seeds.

LUCKY BAMBOO

Chinese believes that if one of your bamboo dies is actually a good thing. It has prevented something happening that could have been worse.

3 stems is a favorite number because it represents happiness, long life and wealth. Yes please!

If I could just find somewhere in Key West that has them.The last one I had was a baby that after 8 years growth towered above my kitchen cabinets.A jump down form manic cat China destroyed it. It was unable to be mended.

Bamboo_Before_Break

In retrospect on the 21 st of March 2018,I had a moped incident.Three weeks later X-Rays revealed two cracked ribs. The pain was horrid. I have had broken ribs when I was younger. At 69 it took a huge toll on this bod.

affection

a physical way of showing just how much you love someone. Its a fondness that consumes you. Wanting to touch, tickle, kiss, hug, or hold.

The Warriors Prayer by Stuart Wilde
(24 September 1946 – 1 May 2013) was a British writer. Best known for his works on New Age, self-empowerment, and spirituality,

I am what I am.

In having faith in the beauty within me, I develop trust.

In softness I have strength.

In silence I walk with the gods.

In peace I understand myself and the world.

In conflict I walk away.

In detachment I am free.

In respecting all living things, I respect myself.

In dedication I honor the courage within me.

In eternity I have compassion for the nature of all things.

In love I unconditionally accept the evolution of others.

In freedom I have power.

In my individuality, I express the God-Force within me.

In service I give of what I have become.

I am what I am: Eternal, immortal, universal, and infinite.

And so be it.

How to Get Pee Stains Out of a Mattress:

You need a measuring cup, tablespoon, funnel, and heavy duty spray bottle.

8 ounces/237 ml hydrogen peroxide 3% (this can be found in a brown bottle in the first aid aisle of most pharmacies or stores)

3 tablespoons/45 grams of baking soda

1 drop of liquid hand dish washing soap

Mix all ingredients into the spray bottle, swish ingredients, do not shake the bottle, and use within 20 minutes. Do not attempt to store the leftover solution. because it will leak out of the bottle. The mixture only works if you use it immediately, because the cleaning byproducts are active for only a short time period. You should see the stain lift and disappear within 5-10 minutes. Once the mattress dries, if a baking soda film remains, then simply wipe or vacuum it off. Reports I read also indicate this method works well for pet urine stains, but I have not tested it yet in this capacity.

Ambivalent

is an adjective we use to show when we’re uncertain about how we feel about something or we’re unable to decide what to do. People sometimes use it to show that they don’t care one way or the other. … Indifferent is an adjective, which means not interested or not thinking about something or someone.

Benevolent

comes from the Latin bene “well” and volent from the verb “to wish” so you can imagine that this word brings goodness with it. A benevolent society is a charity group organized to serve a community through programs, sponsorships and donations. The expression, benevolent dictatorship, may seem like an oxymoron, but it is a political term for an authoritative government that works for the good of the people under its rule.

Instrinsically

Something that is intrinsic is an essential part of a whole, so intrinsically describes something closely connected to or inseparable from something.
For example, if you believe people are intrinsically good, you think goodness is a part of being human. The Latin root is intrinsecus, which means “inwardly, on the inside.”

Intrinsic

Anything intrinsic comes from within.

Belonging to a thing by its very nature

“Even though people have the feeling that you are avoiding them, don’t hesitate to zone out if you are so inclined. It is likely that you need peace and quietness in order to ponder over your problems and to sort out what is real from what is imaginary. You also need solitude to assess the situation and to find the right answers to your questions. Silence helps you deepen your thoughts about spirituality and also encourages your meditation. Take full advantage of this short constructive retreat to recharge your batteries.”

“Your icy voice put out the stars
it cracked my heart, and broke it in splinters
your tone as cold as Colorado winters
but I promise to soon forget
the contract we almost made…you’ll feel
the swift response of an equal
as the dream begins to fade
I’ll drown you in pseudo kindness
and a casual, friendly glance
I can almost imagine your blindness
as I watch and wait
for the chance
to suddenly – cruelly – make you know
how easy it was to let you go”

nounArchaeology
noun: Clovis

a Paleo-Indian culture of Central and North America, dated to about 11,500–11,000 years ago and earlier. The culture is distinguished by heavy, leaf-shaped stone spearheads.

Watched a good show on the First real Americans on National Geographic. They were known as the Clavis and came into the America’s too a new land via Siberia. The Native Americans who were first thought to be the First are descendants from them. They have discovered a cave in the Yucatan that holds so many treasures in the deepest and darkness depths. Ice age mammal bones and a human said to be at least 13,000 years old.

I thought about how things change seemingly so suddenly.

More than likely an outcome already set in motion.

Like Old Home being razed too make way for new development. When people we love withdraw from us, the school shootings that yet again took innocent lives.

Illness that we have no real control over. At the mercy of Doctors and medical teams that are often time as clueless as we are.

I made a OLD HOME video.

I had hominy, an egg and cottage cheese with apple butter for early breakfast.

I made Fish Baja Tacos for my solo dinner last night.

I know I won’t be around to see it but I can easily envision a world made of skyscrapers where beautiful land once was, little space craft used as transport, gardens grown hydraulically in the sky. Perhaps 25-50 more years.

Of course there is that major possibility of an all out wipe out of what we know as Earth, our home.

The Broads

Click here for awesome photos of Broads in all their awesomeness.

http://www.sarah-bishop.com/girls/index.html

Someone asked me yesterday if I had ever been A BROAD.

I replied “I’ve been a BROAD my entire life.”

“So, what is a Broad?

A Broad is a gal who takes no crap from anyone.

A Broad is smart, loyal, honest, supportive, sassy, funny, and knows who she is.

A Broad can bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan, regardless of whether or not a man is in her life.

A Broad doesn’t have time to be jealous of the women around her.

A Broad doesn’t have time to gossip nonstop, though a Broad is extremely capable of dishing some good dirt (the only difference is she’ll dish it to your face).

A Broad knows the true meaning of the word vent; she can lend an ear while her friends vent, and let out a good scream of her own with her fellow Broads.

Basically, a Broad is as real as any woman can get, and I’m proud to have known a few real Broads in my life.”

How my dad got the nickname “Nub”

From the Frederick News
October 17, 1946.
“George Martz, 25, son of Mehrle and Estelle Martz of near Shookstown, was working on the Harry Free farm as a laborer, and he lost four digits of his right hand when he was trying to get the corn husker going again after it stalled. The report is that he put his hand in the machine and it immediately caught it and mangled him to his palm. Another worker with him, stopped the machine and got him to the Frederick hospital where he apparently stayed for a good while.”

All this taking things as they come
Tends to make you forget to put anything in.

And you wander through these

I say it to be proud
Won’t have my life turn upside down

Like weights strapped around my feet
Tread careful one step at a time

So fragile on the inside

Cynthia says~Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

Most people come into your life temporarily simply to teach you something. They come and they go and they make a difference. And it’s OK that they’re not in your life anymore. Not all relationships last, but the lessons these relationships bring to you do. If you learn to open your heart and mind, anyone, including the folks who eventually drive you mad, can teach you something worthwhile. Sometimes it will feel weird when you realize you spent so much time with someone you are no longer connected to, but that’s exactly how it’s supposed to be. You are exactly where you’re supposed to be. We all are.

Hurricane Irma Cat 5

“If ever there was a storm to take seriously in the Keys, this is it”

They are calling this A Perfect Storm

Monroe County also has issued a mandatory evacuation of all residents. It will begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Everyone is rather upset that I along with many other Conch’s have decided to ride it out.

Traffic is horrendous. Gas stations over flowing and running out of gas. No bottled water in the KEYS.
Stopped at Pets market and got supplies in case Chewy can not deliver before storm.
All tourists ordered to leave our Island.
Locals Mandatory on Thursday.
I will not be a sitting duck on any bridge going out of the Keys.

I would rather be here barricaded in my castle with my animals.

I have never in 25 years evacuated.

We can only hope and pray that Mother Nature is not as mean as she is expected to be.

It is not an easy decision to make.

I have 9 birds, two cats and a hamster. We will remain together.

My daughter and her man will bunker down with me.

I am taking this very seriously.

I am also doing what my heart tells me to do.
