“I make mistakes, I’m not perfect.”

“Yeah, but just because we’re not perfect doesn’t mean we get let off the consequential hook.”

Being human doesn’t give me a free pass to act like an asshole.

It’s a lot easier to stay humble than to get humble.

I think Taekwondo, among other life lessons, taught humility.

tcr! tcr! · Apr 24, 2019 at 1:45 pm

It most certainly did. I picked up a lot of good stuff there with you guys!

Laurie · Apr 24, 2019 at 1:58 pm

Things that have stuck with me, for sure!

Yep! Me, too.

Go out of your way for people. You’ll be mildly surprised by the results.

After I’ve made a mess of things because I’m nervous I remember the question I was supposed to ask:

Where is god in all of this?

Sadly, when I know I’m quite right I’m most likely not.

If you don’t ever get attached to people then you’ll never be disappointed.

But how do we not get attached to people?

tcr! tcr! · Feb 7, 2019 at 4:46 pm

Now that is a very good question.

Fitwidge · Feb 7, 2019 at 4:48 pm

If you don’t mind me asking… is this a relationship issue?

tcr! tcr! · Feb 7, 2019 at 5:23 pm

More of yesterday’s familiar theme.

And kinda like having your heart shattered by a two handed hammer. The red and white bits and pieces explode everywhere. Faster than a sneeze, angrier than the bees.

And sugary shrapnel blasts your eyes and then of course sticks to your socks until the following Sunday.

Peppermint anyone?

Don’t want to, afraid of losing it forever.

tcr! tcr! · Feb 11, 2019 at 6:48 am

Can’t have it both ways. Sucks but that’s just the path we’re on.

-DTXX- · Feb 11, 2019 at 6:49 am

True…

Fiercely independent critters

tcr! · Dec 27, 2018 at 12:55 pm

Pro tip: be really good at accepting people’s help.

As humans we can be fiercely independent critters but pride is irrelevant and unuseful.

Wanna know why? You know that good feeling you get when you yourself extend your hand to help, for no other reason than you’re a good person? That warm fuzzy you get when we make the world not all about us?

Don’t deprive someone else offering help that same kind of warm fuzzy feeling. It’ll make them feel good and very well may be the best part of their day.

PS- my dictionaries are telling me that “unuseful” is not a word. They can go fuck themselves. 👍

Raindrops on the conifer

tcr! · Dec 14, 2018 at 9:06 am

Taking a good photo and making it better.


1- I took the original as I was walking down to the garage on my way to work.

Raindrops on the conifer 1


2- It’s not bad but I didn’t like the bottom greenery, it’s too big and blurry. The left side was also too busy so I cropped the whole photo tighter.

3- The garage’s gutter cluttered the picture, too, so I nuked it.

4- The colors were okay but they felt bland. I dropped the Shadows down to -0.35 and bumped the Saturation up to 0.21. Now I love it!

5- I did this all in Photos for macOS in less than 5 minutes. To remove the gutter I used the Pixelmator Retouch extension with the default settings. Yes, your whole life has been a lie.

6- Life is all about making things less complicated, less cluttered. Noise just distracts me from what’s important.

Elaborate UNC

tcr! tcr! · Nov 22, 2018 at 9:14 am

Too many choices makes life harder. As an example, you could have a plump sweet piece of apple pie or a piece of tart juicy cherry pie. Decisions, decisions… 😢

Mitchell · Nov 22, 2018 at 9:28 am

If there were never options to begin with how could you be dissatisfied with what you have. Something like that right

tcr! tcr! · Nov 22, 2018 at 9:51 am

Pretty much. I think life can get overly complicated when there’s too many options. Then I turn into a indecisive pile of goo.

Mitchell · Nov 22, 2018 at 10:03 am

Happy Thanksgiving btw

Pro-tip: stop acting like a moron

tcr! · Oct 24, 2018 at 11:26 am

Something like this is what I’m referring to: you’re pulled over along the side of the street at a mailbox, depositing your envelopes on a Wednesday morning.

It’s not Christmas card season but you still got bills to pay or ballots to send. You’re lost in your own world of stamps and bubble wrapped packages. Maybe the taste of envelope glue is still fresh in your mouth. Maybe not.

Regardless, then you pull out into traffic without signaling, without yielding, without common sense. Then you cut across two lanes without haste and turn right.

All of that. That’s being a moron.

It’s more than wearing blinders and seeing only your direct path. It’s putting a bag over your whole head and wandering around life clueless. Bumping into people and obstacles like you’re at Funway on Saturday night.

Look, other people will be annoyed when you’re acting like a moron. Expect that. Underline it in your head. You may even get the truck horn.

My point is, we’re all gonna act like morons. It’s what we do. I won’t hold it against you.

But when you see yourself, feel yourself acting like a moron, stop.

Don’t maintain. Don’t forge or plow ahead. Pull up life’s emergency brake, take the bag off, and wave meekly yet happily in complete, acknowledged defeat.

Hang your head if you must. Because people just want to know that you know that you were indeed being a moron.

The key is to stop though. Just stop. 👍
