It's Friday, Bitches

I've been pondering significant subjects lately. I always do in the fall. After I moved to New York, I learned about Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, but I suspect that somewhere in my Celtic soul, I already knew it was New Year. The crops may not be quite ready to harvest, but we're all turning inward as we prepare to move inside.

Yom Kippur is all about forgiveness and atoning. The Rebbe Mohammed McCrory always points out that atoning is about becoming At One. At One with G*d, if you insist on honoring that Grandpa in the Sky, but it's all about Life. Music of the Spheres stuff.

I've taken as many steps toward enlightenment as I feel like taking right now. When you're dealing with other people, you're only going to get so far before they have to start making their own choices and taking their own steps. That reality must have been what I was pondering when I remembered these guys:



At the end of the day, maybe Mike O'Connell and Dr. Ken were on to something when they made this video. Socrates may have been dead on when he said, "The Unexamined Life is Not Worth Living," but a person needs to get out there and Live, and it's Friday after all.

Yeah and I'm sitting on my ass all day. Skipped my workout because my knees hurt, ain't going to do any house cleaning because I'm tired this morning, and laundry will be piecemeal at best.

Even better next Friday as soon as my daughter is out of school we are going to the beach.

Grandpa in the Sky! You are too funny. It's true, you gotta live, but the pondering is important too.

I like this piece, especially the Grandpa in the Sky thingy. I'm too old to get fucked up any more than I already am and pondering takes up so much of my time I get bored with it. Guess I could clean house or maybe write a blog. That's a thought.

I do enjoy your writing.

Oh wow, that was hilarious. Had not come across that. I'm such a huge fan of Ken Jeong as Senor Chang on "Community". God knows the hate crime committed against him in "The Goods" was one of the few funny moments in that pile of shit. Thanks for that!

I think it's all about reflection anyway. If you don't live you don't have anything to reflect on. Reflecting on the reflecting can get a little boring.

Heidi, Ken makes this video. I've watched it a hundred times and he never gets old.

Glad you enjoyed. You, too, tnlib

Susan, I love seeing you here.
Beach, have fun at the beach ;)

Jennifer - sounds like Hippies contemplating their navels. Only fun when you're on acid.

Damn, that's funny ! I like your Grandpa in the sky too :-)

I think I catch myself reflecting a bit too much sometimes too. I need to stop that.
