3 Questions – play, moon & twists

The “Fate and Consciousness” thread continues with two more on the nature of consciousness.

Ailsa is away tonight tramping – camping up a hill known as “the pimple” – she called it “a lovely spot” this evening.

A few small posts over the last few days.

Question of the Day May 17, 2011 ~ Playful encounter

Reflect on your adult play… Describe the last playful encounter you had with a co-worker, neighbor or friend

You ask for the last Adult play.
This is not an X rated site.
How my wife and I play is up to us, and not really for sharing – hence my silence.

At Lions Club last night there was lots of playful banter and innuendo – a lot of fun – as well as serious discussion and coordination of work for the community. Then I came home, snuggled in with Ailsa, ……


Question of the Day May 18, 2011 ~ Full Moon Gazing

Please Gaze into This Full Moon Photo That I Took. How do You Feel?

This evening I watched a red moon rise out of the sea on the deck of a friend’s house.
It was an awe inspiring sight, no less so for the knowledge I have of the beginnings and evolution of the moons, and myself, and the atmospheric conditions that made it look red, the the manner in which my eyes receive they photons, translated them to an FM neural signal and sent that signal to my optic lobe.

It was an awesome sight.

Great to be alive!!!

Twists & Turns in the Road of Life May 17, 2011

What’s the most unexpected twist or turn that you’ve encountered along life’s journey? If it was seemingly “negative” at the time, did it turn out to be positive after all?

So many twists its hard to choose a “most” (sometimes feels more like life in a tumble drier).

It would probably be calling in to Kaikoura 20 years ago, to give a day’s training to a girl operating a computer system I had sold to Virgo Fisheries.
I did the training session with Lynette, then went back to the motel where my mother an son were.

A couple who used to farm up near where I lived at Waitakaruru had moved to Kaikoura the year before so I decided to look them up. As I called around, it happened to be Diane’s birthday, and she had invited a few friends around. One of those friends I liked the look of. Following a 3 year long distance romance, we got married, and after 4 years in Waitakaruru Ailsa convinced me to move to Kaikoura (before asking her to marry me I was very clear to her that I was never leaving Waitakaruru).

A few twists in there, and many more since.

Wouldn’t have missed any of them.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
