đ“‚€ signal vs. noise

The Goddesses and the Gods sing my song (La la la la la, La la la la la la, La la la la la, La la la la) Sirens and The Princes sing my song and they love me; For when vibrations resonate with their own frequencies, There is (always) harmony: It’s how friends, lovers,Continue reading “đ“‚€ signal vs. noise”

Musing on Life Through Jack London’s ‘The Star Rover’: “The one man” and “The one woman”

I’m a fan of Jack London. He is, like Steinbeck, one of those California writers who hold a special place in my heart. I see myself like them, and their philosophies speak to me. And while Jack London is best known for adventure stories like Call of The Wild, The White Fang, and Sea Wolf,Continue reading “Musing on Life Through Jack London’s ‘The Star Rover’: “The one man” and “The one woman””

Life As a Failed Hypothesis: Try Again.

I’ve hit a wall today. I feel like throwing up. Fact is, I’m here, where I am in life, as a result of my choices.  In a word, I made the wrong hypothesis. It’s all very complex, you see; allow me to rewind so that I may tell the story in full. In 2010 I builtContinue reading “Life As a Failed Hypothesis: Try Again.”

A Minor Breakup Poem, Magical Optimism, and The Toxicity of Self-Pity

Thought she was my priestess, But she was a chimera Her head in my lap, Eyes on fire, Masking the truth behind black mascara and desire Looking up to me always, Only to let me down again And in our tempests, I tried my best to swim But joy perished, And I returned to theContinue reading “A Minor Breakup Poem, Magical Optimism, and The Toxicity of Self-Pity”

Post Romantic Nostalgia, and Reprieve

As the sun sets earlier in the evening, I can feel myself being wrapped in the same discomforting melancholy that always calls as Autumn rolls around each year. The thing is, while the feeling is familiar, I cannot quite put my finger on what causes it, why I feel the melancholy of dark Autumn evenings.Continue reading “Post Romantic Nostalgia, and Reprieve”

The Cottage and The Castle

I took a nap this afternoon and had a very lucid dream; I dreampt I was outside of a small cottage, posting an old wooden sign bearing the namesake of my blog – only the S was gone: 7Saturday. I then heard a stirring from within the interior of the cottage, which prompted me toContinue reading “The Cottage and The Castle”

A Delightful Life

Delightful day; what more can I say; I ran, I hiked, I swam, I read, I cooked, I napped – I did everything but make love, which, in itself, is another kind of delightful day, just not the one written for today. But I conspire with fate for days like that too. I’m working onContinue reading “A Delightful Life”

Self-Forgiveness and Forgiveness: Tools and Practices

I just wanted to take a minute to share a Google Doc I created with 5 resources / activities for self-forgiveness and forgiveness. I’ve previously written on forgiveness before, but this entry provides the “how to” (whereas that entry focused more on the “why”). I hope this benefits others as much as it has benefited me.Continue reading “Self-Forgiveness and Forgiveness: Tools and Practices”

For You’re One of The Lucky Ones

Note: The original Song and video are great as well, but I find this remix slightly less melancholy. Sometimes I don’t think it’s fair – But I smile, Because life is good to me You might think this notion silly, And for a time, I did too But trust me – You see, I’ve beenContinue reading “For You’re One of The Lucky Ones”

On Choosing to Be Kind

Update: 10/31/2014 I wrote this entry while being emotionally riled, and while I feel I did an effective job of being constructive with my emotions and providing a great deal of substance to the reader, I do not feel I wrote all of this in the proper tone or from the optimal perspective. As such,Continue reading “On Choosing to Be Kind”

And This is What Love is

One of the things that continually bolsters my spirituality is the way synchronicity and serendipity have a way of bringing the right signs, messages, people, and lessons into my life. And what’s really shown me this is the fact that I went through a kind of dark night of the soul over the past couple yearsContinue reading “And This is What Love is”

Some Thoughts on Writing, Hiding Behind Poems, and a Poem on Modern Love

At the end of this entry is poem I worked on last night and today, and as the poem’s opening line states, it was not an easy poem – but beyond that I don’t I think it’s a particularly great poem; however, there is some substance there; although, it certainly lacks a consistent tone or styleContinue reading “Some Thoughts on Writing, Hiding Behind Poems, and a Poem on Modern Love”
