Subject:How did it get to be 2011 already?
Time:8:01 pm.
I was glancing over the ramblings I've posted around these here intarwebs. I've wasted a fair number of letters in my time. Poor old Live Journal, you were once the center of a digital universe.

My life... these days... Today I had an interview with one of the most unusual companies I've ever visited. I'm building a Temple for Apogaea. I'm going to spin fire in front of the man during the Burn. Neat stuff.

Life is alright.

Subject:Time Is Relevant
Time:11:08 am.
The world does not run by your time. Opportunities exist when they exist and if you fail to make the right choices at the right time, you can not expect those opportunities to wait for you.

Live in the now - right now.

Subject:Everything That Went Wrong
Time:9:47 am.
Mood: depressed.
I suppose I was high on life. Why shouldn't I be, everything was going so well.

Today I reflected on a lifetime and fell into a photo marking one of oh so many choices I wish I could re-live.

Perhaps the grass is just greener over there.

I'm spent. I have no "try" left.

Subject:Hello Universe
Time:8:36 pm.
Universe,

Things have been... challenging... over the past few months. I'm stressed. It's not that life hasn't been really good to me; it has. However, the challenges have been a lot to take in.

This next step in life, it fills me with fear and concern. I want to look forward to life with excitement and joy.

Please, universe... let this be a good trip.

Thank you,
Scotty

Subject:You were always on my mind...
Time:10:02 am.
Just listened to Data 80's "You were always on my mind..." Made me smile.

Things are clicking in my mind. I feel pretty solid. Last night I went out and bought some crap. I finally got a lamp for my bedroom. I've been using a sick joke of a light fixture - it's little more than a bulb screwed into a base sitting on the floor in the corner. I also picked up a wavy shelf thingy that caught my eye. It looks sharp in the corner behind the lamp. The top has a light it in and the shelves are glass.

I also picked up two down pillows because my pillows are utter crap. The new ones are pretty nice. I picked up a new set of red sheets that will match the curtains (I hope). I haven't had new sheets in a while. I put them through the wash last night so I'll get to try them out soon.

I'm thinking with the reds and blacks in my room, I need a few more earthy tones. I put a plant on top of the shelf, it looks good. I also tossed a green cloth under the items on top of the shelf. I want to cover the other window (currently has no curtains) with a bamboo blind. I remember seeing a whole pile of them at good will the other day.

I'll probably get a bed frame and a head board soon too. When I do, I can spin the bed around and put it under the lamp. The lamp I got has 5 curved arms that reach up and just almost touch the ceiling. There's a large base piece to keep it from falling over. I need to put something 'over' the base and the bed should work well. In fact, that's how they have the lamp on display at the store, they put either a couch or a bed in front of it and let it stretch up and over.

That leaves me with one wall in my room that's almost entirely bare. I'm thinking mirror... is that too suggestive? A mirror in front of the bed? Heh...

I'm kind of going for a slightly Asian look.. actually something more like this:


I'd like to find a humidifier that puts off steam. I'll probably want a couple of more plants. The walls bring in my white. The plants bring in my green. The curtains and sheets bring in my red. The bamboo will bring in an earthy tone. What to do with the big empty wall? Hmmm... what do I want to see when I first wake up in the morning... other than my girlfriend lying next to me?

Subject:Two weeks and I'll be there...

Pucon Chile... snowboarding down an active volcano...

Subject:you can be closer to god...
Time:10:44 pm.
Mood: weird.
you can't wait around to take advantage of opportunities...

you have to react when the moment of decision is at hand...

I find it hard not to spend time looking backwards at various memories wondering, "what if I had ___..."

the problem with that, I think... is being distracted by those thoughts when the next opportunity appears.

Subject:Stockings
Time:4:10 pm.
This man I'd known for so many years seemed so excited as he came over and got my attention. I knew he had another great brainstorm he needed me to help him implement. My mind was elsewhere as we strolled through the warehouse like office space, but I told him to buy me a cup of coffee and we'd talk it over. He said something about not having time for that when suddenly the landscape started to change.

The bright lights dimmed, the music came on, and the office suddenly seemed more like a rave. People I hadn't seen in years came pouring in through doors and from behind desks. Clothing started to fall off of a few folks and there was dancing going on.

I walked briskly through the now crowded room nodding good byes and grinning at all the faces I had almost forgotten over the years. I caught a pair of dark eyes across the room that I hadn't seen since my first few years of high school.

I walked straight towards the not-so-natural blonde. I knew I had a dumb grin on my face as she glared back, almost hostile - but unbroken. Within talking distance she turned away from me - towards the brunette next to her. They kissed - and you could tell it wasn't the first time. I think that's about the time I noticed her dark stockings. She looked back at me, her lips straight and her eyes sharp.

Unlike me, I reached out and grabbed her arm. She looked at my hand - and then back at me in disapproval. I pulled her halfway to me and paused. She broke and grined. Then I kissed her.

There was a violent crashing sound all around me. It jarred me out of a deep sleep, but woke me up to the pleasant noise of a thunderstorm. I felt weird, I don't normally have dreams like that.

Subject:Still neglicting LJ
Time:2:19 am.
LJ really is a neat site, but I've not been drawn back. I tend to post more on my MySpace blog these days. I'd like to reclaim my LJ account soon... explore the new features, develop a topic focus, and explore the different communities available here... All in good time. Tonight I've simply started updating the links on my primary site. To those of you on my friend's list... I have no clue what's going on any more... I look forward to poking around and see what you've been up to. I'll try to post some pics of my travels. This week I'm going to Sayulita Mexico again. I recently went the Merida Mexico. This summer I'm going to Chile. I also quit my job in Texas and accepted a new on in Colorado. Lots going on... lots.

Subject:Steamboat Springs
Time:9:53 am.
Wow, I really have been neglecting my LJ...

Steamboat Springs was fantastic...



Here's the video from the trip...

That's two snowboarding trips for me this season... and we're planning a third. I don't think I'm going to go on any more than that... I want to spend the rest of this year's travel time seeing friends, exploring new places, and getting in at least one good surf trip.
