Earth Limb

Hey, since I'm being ignored most of the time anyway, I thought I'd post this. :)

I'm not in any way trying to demean or diminish the various issues being raised around the world that my mentors, friends, and acquaintances talk about. I listen, I process, and then I think about the root cause and come up with ideas on how it might be solved / resolved.

The fact is that [x] lives matter, or [y] equality or z [rights] -- to me -- is that x, y and z are a qualified and important subset of HUMAN. That doesn't make me dismissive, misogynistic, racist, or anything else.

I think it makes me somewhat of a "bigger picture guy".

I find myself being on social media less and less. Whether it's the algorithms or a constant barrage of argumentative people screaming for attention, the constant cat pictures or political vitriol, I'm just not as interested in society tearing itself down when I can spend my time more productively doing things for myself instead.

I would prefer a tea or beer on the back deck with a friend, just talking about whatever comes to mind. I'd prefer a phone call or a well-worded email or letter to texting, Facebooking or tweeting.

Mondays are a great for drawing a line in the sand.  The weekend is done and it's the start of a new work week, so the cycle begins again, allowing you to do something different, until the next line in the sand.  

Sure, lines are great. Drawing lines in the sand is a way of creating finish lines and starting points.  A way of allowing you to play the 'new card' over and over, but if you draw too many, for too many things, they will probably begin to override your ability to create something spectacular.

What would happen, say, just this once, you didn't create a new line.  Lets say instead that you took that moment, instead of drawing a line, to actually go the extra distance to do something truly special.  


Iced Coffee in a Large Cup

I don't know about you, but I LOVE coffee.  I can't get enough good coffee.. I stress 'good' because some types just don't agree with me.  When we go to our local Asian Grocers, we always pick up a few cans of something called Mr Coffee Mountain Blend iced coffee.  It's a thimble full to me.  The cans are 1/2 size.  I need more.  At the request of my wife, and the need for a cheaper alternative (3 cans were $8 CDN).  Here's the recipe that we've made at home that is the closest thing to it.

About Ian G. Lang

profileThis is my personal journal.  I'm a designer developer on a mid-life journey of discovery. 

You will find me on Facebook often, and, once-in-a-blue-moon on Twitter.  My grammar isn't perfect, my English comprehension is decent, and I don't really do anything that strikes me as world changing --at least in my mind anyway.  You might find a nugget or two of interesting takeaways in my ramblings.

The opinions I put on here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of my employer or associates.
