Now that I’ve done my major technical fiddling I’ll quit procrastinating and get back to writing.


Primal Screams

I am a proponent of many different methods of stress relief including meditation, yoga, chanting, rhythm induced trances, boxing and primal screaming.

Primal screaming takes the least amount of thought. There is nothing intellectual, no out of body experience, no hallucinations, no touching the face of whomever you want to touch – it is pure animal.

There are two things I want to tell you about this technique:

1)      It is sudden. It is over as soon as you run out of breath. You must let go completely. The scream emanates from the lowest recesses of your bowels. When you are finished you flop down and enjoy complete freedom from whatever pressure caused you distress.
2)      Don’t do it in your cubicle during business hours.

I’ve got to go now – the people from HR are here to do the exit interview and escort me out. I’ll log in later…

I like to start without a plan. I manage to get into something before finally realizing a) I’m doing it wrong or b) it really looks stupid.

My blog startup was no exception. Even when it’s plain as day I can ignore every example around me and plow on. But then an epiphany! Some voice inside my head says “You dummy! What is a blog! It’s not stories! It’s journal entries, real life, happening stuff – get off the toilet and go fix it!”

By the way, that voice might have been Annie. She has provided some valuable editorial assistance for real.

Did the work and now I”m tinkering with the theme.
