quiz: what’s your mission

April 6, 2009

1

Okay, it’s a hokey internet quiz. But is it better to have five minutes of boredom and nothing, or five minutes of boredom and some uplifting blog fodder? You Are the Artist You are unique and inspired. You aren’t happy unless you are making art of some sort. Almost anything can be a catalyst for […]

Powerful enough to come back from the dead, apparently! Yes, we are reanimating the running through rain blog, and wish me luck preventing the computer from crashing with all this blogging I’m doing lately.

If Things Look Down, Look Up

December 3, 2007

This is a marvelously inspirational column by Thomas Hoving, heartlessly stolen from the December, 1985 issue of the now-defunct and oft-lamented Connoiseur magazine. Early this fall, I had one of those “Chicken Little” kinds of days. Not only the sky but the whole world seemed to be collapsing. Riots, bombings, apartheid, earthquakes, and plane crashes […]

But if […]

video meditation: handling suppression and judgement

August 27, 2007

I like this series of videos; alas, their blog seems not to be updating much lately, in addition to being in a template too narrow to display YouTubes properly. As usual, I’ve put the video over the jump so it doesn’t slow the blog down for people on dialup. This is a good basic meditation, […]

August 20, 2007

2

Your life is a strange and complex web defined by the tension between choices made and choices forgone. On internetducttape, engtech has a good post about weighing the cost of your life choices and making informed decisions, including the decision to incorporate deliberately “unproductive” time in your day-to-day routine. Remember, inspiration and insight cannot strike […]
