Monthly Detritus Report (06-12)

Random chatter from the Monkey Mind as it leaps from limb to limb, howls, scratches its balls and flings feces at passersby…

  • 01
    • Googled my address and, according to, I have a fireplace. I’ve been living there for 18 years and I haven’t found it yet.
    • It’s the best way to meditate (for me anyway): 10 Things I Learned While Meditating Naked
  • 04
    • “We ain’t a sharp species. We kill each other over arguments about what happens when you die, then fail to see the fucking irony in that.” ~ ShitMyDadSays
  • 06
    • I’ve begun reading the Eknath Easwaran translation & commentary of The Bhagavad Gita on my tablet.
  • 10
    • “The only devils in this world are those running around inside our own hearts, and that is where all our battles should be fought.” – Ghandi
  • 11
    • RT @wpnude: If you haven’t seen me naked, then we probably aren’t really friends. #nudist #wpnude #naturist
    • Clothing compulsiveness and body shame are the result of CULTural programming. Nudists have been deprogrammed.
    • After a very long nap this afternoon I’m feeling much better than I was this morning. Still not up to my usual 85% but by morning…
  • 15
    • “Engaging your creative nature with gratitude for the breath through movement is advanced yoga practice.” ~ Dan Clement
  • 16
    • Helped Rob move his stuff into a storage unit. It took three trips. This evening he’ll return to the nest again.
    • Watching Shaun of the Dead. I think I’m missing something.
  • 19
    • Visit from the Grass Gestapo today. Have to mow my lawn tonight. “Vee vill be back! Und vee vill bring der sign.”
    • “There’s no reason that you should accept the norms set by society unless you have researched their validity and agree with them. Most of the time, these norms turn out to be arbitrary. Even worse is the fact that so many remain convicted to ideas and morals that have no natural or compassionate basis.” ~ Nurba

    • I think we should demand that the burgers we buy look like the ones in the ads.
    • Another scorcher and the AC isn’t up to the task. Hope to hear from a local heating & cooling place to get an estimate for getting it replaced. It’s on its last legs.
  • 22
    • Need to hold a gigantic bake sale this weekend. 2 banks turned me down.
  • 24
    • Too hot for clothes. New AC on Wed but will still prefer no clothes.
    • Mama’s HP Netbook is not well. I think it’s either the AC adapter or the power connection on the computer. Of course, it’s out of warranty so I’ll probably have the honor of opening it up if it comes to that. That should be fun. I’ll have to wait until after payday to order parts. [Working fine now.]
  • 27
    • New AC being installed. Looking forward to comfort in the coming heatwave.
  • 28
    • Vivastra Hatha Yoga practice this morning in my Sadhana space. Felt good.
  • 30
    • Vivastra Hatha Yoga this morning. Great Savasana and meditation. Om.
    • Watching 4th of July fireworks from the neighbor’s yard with Abi.
