Photo, “Archangel Boomerang” by Niki Flow

“An angel has no memory.”  -Terry Southern

This photo was taken from inside my car while speeding down the highway as a storm gathered. (I wasn’t driving.) When I saw the photo on my computer, I thought it looked like an Archangel facing down, wings folded around him, his right hand holding a boomerang back behind his head, ready to throw.

You know, I hope Terry Southern was wrong; or, that the boomerang is one of those squishy Nerf kinds.

Painting “Shaman” by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, Shadowscapes.com

TICKLED PINK
Created in honor of Pinktoes’ “Pink-Themed Song Contest”

I found a Pink Love Potion.
I bravely took a drink.
I never had the notion
It would turn my blonde hair
Pink!

I tried another sip —
Aye brave I be, not wise.
Can ye guess what happened next? Continue reading

Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience…Watts gained a large following in the San Francisco Bay Area while working as a volunteer programmer at KPFA, a Pacifica Radio station in Berkeley. Watts wrote more than 25 books and articles on subjects important to Eastern and Western religion, introducing the then-burgeoning youth culture to The Way of Zen (1957), one of the first bestselling books on Buddhism.

How Introverts Make Friends

  1. Dogs* count as friends.  (*includes all non-humans, animate or inanimate, imaginary or real, alive or otherwise.)
  2. An extrovert found them, liked them and adopted them.
How Introverts Make Friends

This was posted ↑ this way on Reddit and re-created for under1000skies with the *details after reading several comments by cat owners, and others. =)

Are you an introvert?  (If so, put your hand up, then quickly down again.)  Me too.  Some of the most interesting people I’ve never met are, or were, introverts.  Jane Austin, Albert Einstein, Dr. Seuss… (An extensive, and delightfully surprising, list of more introverts is here).

The internet is the perfect place for introverts.  Finally, we can unite (separately, in our own quiet homes.)  Go to any social media, and we have our own hashtag.  For example: #introverts on Tumblr.

Well met, dear introvert, and Happy Monday (fun day) to all, intro-, extro- and ambiverts (balanced between both).  I hope that this re-created graphic made you smile today.  If you are an introvert, here’s a fun test.  “What kind of Introvert are you? (Mine was “healer.”)

The Champion- very smart, unique, and has a vast intellect that helps them to create and invent
The Artist- non-conformist and multi-talented with an eye for change and natural expression
The Mastermind- determined, strong and inspiring, while also very guarded and private
The Protector- emotionally complex, social, outgoing, kind and yet paradoxical
The Healer- understanding, spiritual, altruistic, calm and relaxed
The Architect- knowledgeable, hands on, intuitive, and enjoys teaching others

Starting today, I’m going to do an audio version of the posts both here, on Niki Flow and on Grammy Miami.  The first two are so that my husband (or anyone who doesn’t have a lot of time to read) can enjoy these too; the last is so I can send the link to my daughter for my beautiful granddaughters.  My husband travels a lot and is my biggest fan, but he doesn’t often get a chance to read during the day.   This way I can send him the link and he can listen while driving.  The audio isn’t the best here, but we have better mics to be installed soon.
