Reputationist

When I started this blog in 2007 the following is what I was up to - things have changed - some. I'm what my handle states - an Oldude. The problem with this acknowledgment is my thinking and ambitions have not quite got the message of my "oldness". I've started an online Coaching practice and my rant is about how to improve long term happiness - For the World. My thing, I believe I can change the world - isn't that a hoot. The way I intend to change the world is to foster a wider and deeper appreciation for "mindfulness": The daring, flair and grace of Jayz; the political savvy of Cornel West; the creativity of Mos Def with the business and cultural daring of Richard Simmons. I've thought enough - being a philosopher of sorts - and trained hard with some of the sharpest minds ever on the planet - Cornel West and Michel Foucault to know the total absurdity of trying to change the world - but I do and I will. There it is showing my age again.

It takes time… > 70yrs but – I can do this

How to Do Nothing First you must wash the window to observe more clearly the dandelion seed heads bobbing in the wind. Next, announce on Facebook and Twitter that you will be offline for the next two days, if not forever. Heat water for tea. Remember the bill you forgot to pay, and then cleanse […] … Continue reading

Is it meat or…Experiment?

High-tech alternatives to meat burgers have captured the attention of consumers as they’ve trickled into the market. While black bean burgers are already widely available, plant-based meats that strive to look, taste, and feel just like traditional meat are only just hitting the market in a big way. There’s a lot of work ahead for… via … Continue reading

In the spot light

I’ve never been to keen on the outdoors life.  I move around it like it’s going to infect me with some sort of fungus or even worst.  Now I’m with Maggie –  she has great respect for it – that’s fine, but what and how I will cope is the trick to our life together.  … Continue reading

What I do for love?

I come to this question after years of experience being loved – feeling all the warmth, desire and longing that are found widely in sonnets, plays, songs and the like.  They take us through  a door at its heights of ecstasy and lust to the depths of a cave of despair and longing for it … Continue reading

To Deserve A Gift?

It is not the office of a man to receive gifts For many the pastoral voice of Ralph Waldo Emerson speaks to a self that stands for a kind of freedom that lights a fire in their heart. It screams of self esteem in the face of a demanding horde that would control and break … Continue reading

The Great Divide – Context, Framework and Power

The End of Days May 21st 2011 – for some this is the day – the last day of time.  I don’t agree.  Bad theology may predict some event or the other, but like a broken clock does correctly define current time twice a day – someday will be the last day in time, but … Continue reading

How Men and Woman can be Worthy Friends?

It’s very common for female profiles to suggest how men can achieve a level of success – the problem – “friends first…then”. Damn – why that – the sentiment is understandable, I guess. No one wants to be seen only as means – a body, smile, or vesicle for someone’s… pleasure. As far back as … Continue reading
