I managed the first half of 2013.  Here is part two.  Apparently I was a little more  wordy the second half of the year.
I’ve kept a handwritten journal off and on most my life.  What you’ll see here are excerpts and edited renditions of journal entries I made from July 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013.  These normally never appear in cyber space.  It won’t be strictly linear.    I don’t always date my journal entries and I’m not always sequential.  I may jump in on any page and add new thoughts.  Life isn’t linear.  At least it isn’t for me.
Don’t attach too much significance to any of these. Each is past tense and no longer exists.

Life if messy.  Litterati.  Just pick it up.

The situation appears grim.
What? Now?
Thank you.

Sometimes a creative mind needs limits

You just have to listen
I only hear what I want to hear

Wedding photography is interesting and fun. No more weddings for me.

I had a spell. Weird
It doesn’t matter.
It never has.
How fun is that?
I saw many many poor people. Heart broken.

Guinness
Escapees
Self audit?
Do I have a legacy project? What does that mean?
My truth is important. What does that mean?
Is truth learned in sharing? Are we all little parts of a big truth?
There are many pieces to my truth. Listening to the still small voice.

To understand, to know me, it is only necessary to see and hear me Where I am, where I’ve always been, and were I always will be.
I think. oops

It’s hard dealing with idiots.
People eat so, so often.

Don’t expect to be loved or liked. Just love.

When something is labeled it diminishes in size to fit one’s concept of that label.

One king died
One king conquered a new land and ruled there
One king alone remained
You’re right Jade. It doesn’t make any difference.

I’ll just keep your fuel costs and some illusions. It’s a child. That’s $5.95 here. Let go or be dragged.

NOLA bound. Interesting trip. Some good. Some horrible. That is the nature of change. It can be dramatic/traumatic.
I’m functional except when I’m not. I’m not delusional right now. Maybe later.
Let’s not start assigning values.

A business plan? Maybe.
Chop Chop! Hack Hack! A bit more yard reclaimed.

What would possess a man and make him think he could remove a hot, glowing heating element from a turned on oven? I don’t understand.

It must be hard being the only person who knows anything, the only smart person.

Compassion is what I have to give. We could all be happy together. We just can’t see it. Kind of sad. Kind of not sad.

A pilgrim, not knowing where the next step will be placed.
There is no tourist guidebook.
There are instructions.
The (non-)path isn’t marked.
It’s different for everyone.
The mind is it’s own place.
Never stop looking for what isn’t there.
Delve deeply into life. Don’t waste your opportunity.
Harvest comes.

It’s 73 today. I like warm. I get outside more.

No thought is vast.

Something extra ordinary comes, go for it.
When we wake up from this dream we will sit on the shore of some ocean and laugh about all of this.
Dancing?
Spazzing out?
Eye of the beholder
Says more about the beholder than the dancer/spazoid

Learning to spend days in a row not speaking to another human.
I think it’s time for a vow of silence.
Maybe during spring break.
Is a week possible?
Maybe start with one day?
This week?

Psychoemo-spiritually I’m doing pretty good this winter.

I need Christmas traditions. I think I’ll start with these.

How pleasant to sit on the porch on a sunny afternoon.
Is life a quiet symphony of death?
