Sabbatical

I’ve enjoyed my time away from social networking very much. (Thank you all for the birthday wishes; it was an excellent day. :) ) Social media’s been a part of my life for nineteen years, and as I am wont to do when the mood takes me (look back to where Energy of the Day started on this blog, its second incarnation, as Energy of the Month; sometimes I’ve taken years off from that), I’m shifting my focus for the next while back to video. I love makin’ videos, and I’ve been away from it for over a year, since before MOA went off the air (again), as it is also wont to doing. As always it had a good run, and as always it’ll be back somewhere, someday. :)

I’ve been workin’ (at work), workin’ on the outdoor stuff, workin’ on the fish tanks (got a deal we couldn’t turn down on a fifty-five-gallon long with accoutrements; thanks, Rick), workin’ on that writing project some of you have heard so much about, either from its beginning nineteen years ago or more recently, playin’ with Dude, Jr., mostly while he works with us on stuff. It’s so much fun to hear him be proud of himself for helping. :)

Dude’s been workin’ at work - He’s really enjoying the Forest Service; when we came here his goal was to work with them or the BLM, and he was told even when we were in NC that his best bet was to do what he’s been doin’, finish his education and work for any government agency he can until he gets his foot in the door. These last two summers have both feet wedged firmly in exactly the doors he’s lookin’ to go through - and on his music and, when he has time, his animations. [Check his stuff out at Psychedelic Aire.]

So this is my first fish video in… well, ever. In my earlier aquarist days, twenty-fivish years ago when I wasn’t very good with ‘em, I didn’t have video capabilities). I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed makin’ it and as much as Dude enjoyed makin’ the music that gives it punch. For your viewing pleasure, Fish, 20-Gallon Long, July 30, 2014.

Energy of Right Now

Energy of Right Now

Hey folks,

I’m kinda in the weeds right now, gotta catch up on some stuff (namely work, and work), and much as I love doin’ the Eot*s they’re gonna have to take a backseat for a little bit. Hopefully we’ll be back with ‘em before too long. In the meantime, take good care and have a blast!

Love y’all,
Peace

Energy of the Day

Children, again your dreams are at the forefront, but now it’s the emotions you invest that inform the work you’re willing to put into making them happen; to the degree that you can control your agitation when things don’t go your way, this is your lucky day. For all of us cycles of sorrow are coming to an end, and where we’ve figured out how to put our pain to good use in helping those around us stay on course we find our own paths similarly illuminated. We yearn to expand our future prospects, and now is the time to focus our efforts on doing so through conversations with our partners, friends, and families regarding the improvement of ourselves and our homes.

Energy of the Day

We are rarin’ to go at work today, full of things to say and eager to get the wheels in motion when it comes to building on the dreams of our loved ones, which is best achieved by separating ourselves from that to which we are attracted in favor of what makes sense to strive for. It’s okay to be guided by nostalgia to the degree that it leads us toward the ideals we grew up with, but focusing on the pain we bring forward from our pasts will make it difficult to get ahead, especially within our partnerships. Family and friends are our lucky charms under this energy, and nurturing their hopes is the best way to make use of the sorrow we feel around the material wishes we know are no longer in our own best interests.

Energy of the Day

Ladies, it’s hard for us to bring it down to earth today and do the work involved in self-improvement, but research brings us awareness of a creative approach to reducing emotional friction around the destruction of those things that no longer serve us in our partnerships. For all of us, training in new areas of technology allows us to remove blocks that are preventing us from communicating in ways that will help to advance our careers and shift our consciousnesses in terms of our communities. Pursuing the dreams we have for and with our families plays a big role in making us better people now, and the processes of breaking down and rebuilding what holds us back, of depriving ourselves of what we think we want in favor of what we really need, opens doors to pleasure we weren’t aware we could find in what we do for a living.

Energy of the Day

Ladies, spending some time considering what we’re creating in the world and what we’ll leave behind leads to feeling amorous and desirable today, but a bit agitated where work and dreams get in the way of saying what needs to be said. It’s important for all of us here that we persevere when it comes to communicating the things we hope for with our friends and those with whom we share our homes, and to keep irritability in check with our families when we have a hard time discerning the motivations of those around us. Resolution of issues around our careers is found by taking a close look at what draws us to them, and we find ourselves with a party in our pants when we achieve a measure of understanding around just what it is we’re wishing for.

Energy of the Day

Men, the investments you make in your families today pay off in increased financial independence and improvement in any home business you run. We can all stand to indulge in a little romantic daydreaming under this energy, especially with regard to the material things we’d like to provide to our friends and significant others. However, while talking about these wishes bolsters our good fortune now, making them happen is another story and the best way past the obstacles in our way is to be pragmatic about the reality of the situation and go with the flow rather than pushing for instant gratification.

Energy of the Week

There’s an emotional choice to be made this week regarding the physical energy we intend to put into the workings of our homes and how we’ll address the turbulence any changes we make now may cause in our partnerships. We have our doubts concerning what we should do with and about the things we share with our significant others, but a creative approach to expanding the scope of our alliance allows for the forging of an effective new beginning. Anticipation of the friendly support of those around us facilitates acting in ways that aid us in making the most ideal use of what we have toward building that of which we dream.

Energy of the Day

Children, your dreams are big right now and you’ll do well to follow them with the help of your closest allies, realizing that there’ll be both work and pain involved in making them happen, and that that pain is part of the gift of understanding you’re meant to give to others. All of us will be best served under this energy by speaking with whomever we come across about what needs to be done and where we need to work toward balance between career and family in order to create a legacy of which we can be proud. We’re thinking ahead here with a deep desire to expand upon and make the most of what’s come before, but it’s important to keep our agitation in check where words and actions don’t necessarily come together.

Energy of the Day

Time management is an issue today, and we find ourselves discouraged due to an inability to get our points across through the written word, whether to our families, friends, or colleagues. Disciplined perseverance and a creative emotional approach to tearing down that which stands in the way of achieving what we hope to at home, paying attention as we do to the well-being of our bones and joints, especially our knees, bring the best opportunities for what we build in its place to exceed our dreams. This part of the cycle is never fun, but keeping in mind that it is a cycle helps us look forward to the payoff for moving through it in a purposeful direction.

Energy of the Day

Today we struggle with speaking at work and at home in a way that doesn’t cause conflict with our friends or consequences in relation to the things that we intend to leave as a legacy. We’ll just have to go with the flow and do what we’re able to stay in tune with our partners, remembering where we came from and what we stand to gain by keeping our emotions in check. Grounding ourselves in the reality of how our words affect our reputations makes the best of this energy and keeps us firmly on the path to success.

Energy of the Day

Once again, the dreams we share with our partners are at the center of today’s energy, and the more emotionally invested we are in them the more likely we are to be called upon to let them go. The reasons behind this aren’t clear in the moment and we feel blocked in discerning a new direction, but clarity will be achieved as knowledge and understanding are gained and the philosophical illusions under which we’ve been operating fall away. In the meantime, examining and discussing with our significant others the ways in which we’re both bound to and separate from those around us helps to ease the tension we feel over our mutual inability to move forward in ways we find desirable.

Energy of the Day

Where we feel like fighting with our families and friends we need to be fighting for them today instead; it’s a struggle keeping our emotions and the way we express them on track now but it’s well worth the challenge. The dreams we share with our partners seem to be coming apart at the seams at the moment, but we’re only required to let go of those bits that stand in the way of building together what we really want. Self-discipline goes hand in hand with self-improvement here - following the leads of our breasts (yes, you men have them, too) and stomachs keeps us on track in this area - and the work involved in directing our energies away from overindulgence pays off in leaving more to put toward creating abundance.

Energy of the Day

We’ll be best-served keeping any agitation we’re feeling at work and with our partners out of our voices when we speak with our families and friends today if we want to preserve the relationships we’ve spent so long building. There’s much beauty to be found in our communities today, but we find the darkness and mystery in ourselves blocking the creativity we need to use it wisely and make the most of the potential it bears. Going with the flow, remembering what it is that’s truly important to us personally, and giving up what we think we enjoy in favor of what’s really best for us are the keys to making our current efforts worthwhile.

Energy of the Day

Special attention must be paid today to our written communications, especially those likely to affect our careers and marriages, and to the well-being of our bones, joints, and knees. Overall balance in life is achieved here through creative approaches toward our relationships (particularly in the bedroom, or wherever we might decide to get frisky), and by destroying those things we’ve built that no longer serve us in order to make room for the construction of things that will. There will be obstacles now in applying our energies to those areas in which we can expand and be fruitful, but our previous experiences help us keep an eye on our reputations and act accordingly in pushing past any blocks.
