I’ve been pondering, yes more than usual, and I think that I am going to throw some of my thoughts out there. No order, no goal.
I’m sick and tired of the economy. And seeing as I am part of it, I’m going on strike. For the year 2017 I will only buy necessities like food and toilet paper. And of course home repairs, car repairs, and vet bills…..but you get the idea. F-them.
About social media, yeah it sucks. It time sucks and it can be a wasteful distraction from better things. I mean seriously, you’d feel one hundred times better if you took a nap rather than spend an hour on Facebook. Cutting back, but not cutting out.
And regarding Donald, I dont want to hear what he tweeted. Until a story is actually news worthy, I’m tuning the Donald out. Can I tell you something? When I hear his name my stomach literally turns. He, and the mention of him, makes me physically sick.
I will support issue that are dear to my heart. Mother Theresa once said,
“I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.”
I never understood it until this year. It’s that mentality that I have to carry to get through this f-up world. War and social issues are complicated and there is just way too much negativity. My body can’t take any additional turmoil. So I hope this year, to support some of the most simplest causes protecting human rights, animal rights and our environment.
You do know I am extremely liberal. And by the way, I am proud of that.
I made a list to live by, for my daily grind….it’s a bit over reaching. I can’t find it now. Shit. I forget everything. It was things to do everyday. Making life habits. Now I have to think it all up again.
- give something
- do art
- play with dogs
- write something
- I cant remember… probably yoga….I’ve been meaning to take that up for years.
Anyway you get the idea. I just can’t waste another year filling my head with all the crap in the world that I can not control.
Those are my thoughts for now. Just ramblings …. I hope to be writing better stuff real soon…..Carry on and cheers!
When I need some inspiration on my road to minimalism, I look to my dogs. If you have dogs you’ll know what I mean. They are everything. All inclusive beings, without owning anything. They don’t own any material things willingly. They may have one favorite toy or bone, but those didn’t come with a title or proof of ownership. Maybe one thing. Everything else they have we humans have pushed onto them. You know like the collars, tags, leashes, sweaters, Halloween costumes, you get my drift.
( who says “drift” without the word snow next to it ?)
Dogs are super Gods. Not only because they are minimalist but also because they have mastered their general day to day existence in life. Everyday they wake up and it’s the best f*cking day of their lives. They are ecstatic to see you are still with them and eager to eat their gruel-in-a-bowl. They play, they run and when they tire they slip in to a deep slumber.
When they wake up or when you come home, it’s like the very best f*cking day in their lives, again. You are back, and they are eternally grateful. Their tails give them away,wag wag wag wag. So dogs actual get two days out of one without much effort, and they are happy about it. I don’t think there is a day they don’t love. Every day is great! Wow, they are super beings!
Beyond the basics; air, water, food and shelter, the only true possession a dog need is love.
What’s not to learn from that?
Tip: Wag more Bark less

One day one thing: Sorting my pets’ bins (cats and dogs) and donating to local animal rescue.
