Beach Walk 703 – Specific Accuracy

Writing up the notes for today I realize yesterday was about “distort” and today is about “accurate.” This political season has a lot of people tossing around terms like right, wrong, stupid, smart, etc. These things feel good to say but are generally not provable. They are full of loopholes, shall we say. But when you are very specific, either about descriptions or your opinions/feelings, then you will almost always be accurate and spot on.

Hawaiian Word:
Pololei: accurate

Beach Walk 656 – Right Brain Bliss

Here’s a great story. A Harvard researcher, Jill Bolte Taylor, had a stroke. It de-commissioned her left brain.

She found her bliss deep inside the exploration of her right brain.

Beach Walk 536 – Got a Cold; So What?

I caught a cold this week; some would say because I work too hard, but then again, a little friend of mine had a cold and I was busy wiping her runny nose a lot!

I am not a believer in absolute rights – that somehow if I lived “right” I wouldn’t have caught the cold. Even if it was from all my hard work and long hours, so what? I choose to push myself very hard; if that means I crash a little every now and then, it’s OK by me. It’s about getting off my case, thinking I should somehow be different, that life would be better without speed bumps. Sounds really silly as I write it, but I know, it’s easy to get caught up in things in the moment!
