Memos from January 2006

Tuesday with AMF

A Game of Weights and Bal­ances by stechico.

Boy oh boy. Anoth­er week, anoth­er Tues­day. Since when did my weeks become so long yet so short? Long, in terms that the week­end is a stretch; short, in terms of not get­ting to do a lot of stuff that I’d want to get done, or start­ed with. I’m telling you, it’s all a con­spir­a­cy. Some­thing is mess­ing up our time on this great Earth. It seems to hap­pen after high-school.

But alas, noth­ing like a nice game of bowl­ing to take your wor­ries away. Although a “peace­ful” sport, you can get more stressed out just try­ing to knock two pins (a split) over one. And we thought we got “sim­plic­i­ty” fig­ured out. What does the val­ue “less is more” hold in this game? Nada.

Oh boy. Bowl­ing. A game you think you know, but you have no idea.

Something For Your Third-Eye

Work­ing for “The Man” by stechico.

It was just inter­est­ing see­ing and think­ing about this after the first time I saw it. It led me to think about every­thing I/we absorb in our every­day lives from walk­ing on this green Earth. Whats true and false? Are we just a part of “The Matrix”? What would you do if you were giv­en a choice to take the red or blue pill? Things to pon­der.

You see, I’m not real­ly a polit­i­cal-type. I guess its those days spent con­vers­ing with polit­i­cal­ly mind­ed peers and col­lege pro­fes­sors who had some­what a dif­fer­ent view on things in our Soci­ety. One thing is for sure though, we all should think for our­selves. Knowl­edge is FREE.

There is a lot to be learned from our world, as well as each oth­er. You just got to keep your mind open. Well, I guess that’s one of Life’s great mys­ter­ies. We just have to find out one day at a time. May your jour­ney allow you to seek truths—starting with your own per­son.


Note: Actu­al pho­to came from ESPN/Boxing Pho­to Wire.

Osha Elephants

Asha Osha Ele­phants by stechico.

Besides the great and tasty food that they offer, Asha Osha — Thai Restau­rant has a lot of ele­phant figurines/statues as decor. This set was a “dou­ble-take.”

After call­ing it “Asha” for the past few months, I final­ly got the cor­rect spelling from a friend. It’s actu­al­ly “Osha”.
