Managing Your Feelings Is Not My Job

“Whistling girls and crowing hens always come to some bad ends,” my grandma used to say, just before she would tell me that while I was a gracious loser (she was right; I am), I was a “very poor winner.”  By that, my grandma meant that I loved winning too much and that, when I did win, I wasn’t good at pretending not to care.  And, she was right; I do and I’m not; it’s made me a hell of a lawyer.  My grandma loved me and she was just trying to prepare me for what she called “the real world.”

One of the almost unconscious (and completely unpaid) jobs that women are doing all the damn time is managing their own behavior in order to manage men’s emotions.  We do it so much that we’re often not even aware that we’re doing it.  While the Jungian projection is that…

The Pop Kids – a letter to Pet Shop Boys.

Idle blogs of an idle fellow

I’ve been fan of pop duo Pet Shop Boys for longer than I’ve been drinking tea in bed, which given I owned a Teasmaid at 14, is bloody ages. Perhaps this was an early indication that rock ‘n’ roll was never going to be my bag.  As a teenager, with my nose pressed apprehensively against the glass of adulthood, I needed a band that shone a light into the future; of Opportunities and spurned lovers, parties every night and of course rapped lists of dog breeds. Neil Tennant’s lyrics of debut album Please captured it all; the excitement and desperate longing to leave Suburbia for nocturnal pleasures in New York and West end towns.

The urban disco thrills and cowbells of Please celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, yet still it returns me to a place of being understood; where…

Tulip Fields

At the weekend me and kB went to Holland.

Windmill
On the first day we went to Zaanse Schans to see the windmills (see above).

Red Tulips, Holland On the second day we went to Keukenhof and had a bike ride around the tulip fields (see above).

. Amsterdam
I think for some time I’d been a little bit worried that we would get there and there would be no tulips at all. However I needn’t have worried – there were loads. There were still some daffodil fields as well!

Pink tulip fields

 We arrived in Amsterdam at about 930 am. We navigated our way to the station at the airport, bought a day rider thingy, and got on the train to Amsterdam Centraal.
Once at the train station (Centraal) we got the bus to Zaanse Schans – this is where my planning paid off as I knew where to get the bus from and the bus times.

Being Present – Part 1

What is the difference between being present and being asleep?
As human beings, we can only function in one of the following two states:

  1. Awake – being present and having full control of our thoughts, emotions, and actions.
  2. Asleep – acting based on conditioning and instincts with virtually no control over our thoughts, emotions, or actions; living life in automatic mode without controlling outcomes or circumstances.

Being present is part of what we call an “aware” state, which also means being awake and fully conscious of your internal and external environment. Conversely, when you are asleep, you are in a state of reduced awareness and have no control of what is going on around you. In this state, you allow your instincts and conditioning to take over your life. The price that you pay for not being present is all sorts of drama, including broken relationships, missed opportunities, loss of…
