Bag of Wet Mice

Saturday, November 11, 2006

This story reminds me of someone....
Hmmmmm. Who might it be?
Someone truly arrogant.
Gee...It'll come to me.

"...the poor fish was dumber than a bag of wet mice, unable to realize that he was his own worst enemy."

I've never had a professional massage. And yet I have a persistent back pain that interferes with my morning meditation to the point that I have thrown my arms skyward shouting,

I get like that sometimes.

This morning I was chatting with the local masseuse. I asked her how business was these days. Then I confessed my back pain. I told her I had always been hesitant to use massage because I didn't want to bother with a temporary solution.

pain -- relief -- more pain -- relief -- yet more pain-- and so on

sounds really frustrating

I wanted a permanent solution to my pain...and if I couldn't have that, I would just have to learn to live with it. (In my mind I'm thinking "I have no intention of throwing good money after bad.")

Then she said something that astounded me. She said, "I tell my clients to notice how long it takes for the pain to come back. After learning more about their particular pain cycle, ideally they would want to schedule their next massage a couple of days short of the cycle to remain pain free."

"Free of pain....?" I said.
I never thought of THAT.

More about pain from YouTube (suitable for all ages).

Battered Flag

While working my chores today, I listened to Air America's Jon Elliott read some of the names of our fallen in Iraq.

Then I looked out my living room window at the shredded flag (courtesy of mis-management at our apartment).

Battered Flag

Seems there is a heap of mis-management in this country.

Vote on Tuesday....and then roll up your sleeves. There's work to be done.

Good Day Bad Day

Friday, November 03, 2006

The bad first...

I stomped out of this morning's meeting. Some oldtimer, who should have known better, decided to blatantly talk politics. I wonder what the newcomers (3) thought.

...and the good:

I saw a grown man hopping like a frog in Balboa Park. He was surrounded by children, so I think I can safely assume he is playfully sane.

AND I found two more bent coins today. I never told you about the coins...did I? Here's the deal

A mystery person has been leaving bent coins on the city sidewalks. I have been finding them since I arrived in July. Today I found 2 more. The coins are found in several blocks, but one block in particular is a hot spot. I don't walk that area much any more, but when I did I was finding at least a penny a day.

mystery coins

Are they meant as gifts to the Gods? (oops)
A favorite pasttime of someone who is horribly bored?
An anti-establishment message?

What do you think?

I have looked for the perp, and I suspect a very wrinkled homeless person. I can't tell if this person is a he or a she; but he/she is often sitting at the hot spot.

I'm not going to ask. Would you?
