Give Until It Hurts…

Give a F

(language alert!) A few weeks ago, I read a great article by Mark Manson called, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck. The gist of the article is to carefully consider whether an asshat or asshat-situation deserve one of your very valuable fucks. Don’t hand out fucks like they are candy. It is much calmer way of thinking and living your life. Now, when some asshat or asshat situation is about to make my blood pressure leak out of my ears, I look them right in the eye and tell them that they do not deserve one of my fucks. In my head, I say this. It’s very freeing and I highly recommend it.

We’ll Always Have Coffee…

Coffee Zen

The creative juices are a little dry right now – must the be the time of year. Very little rain. However, the coffee is still flowing so I thought it’d be nice to share a coffee-related favorite.

Hopefully, inspiration will make it’s way back with some new ideas.

Happy Summer.

Chock Full of Repeat…

Chock Full O' Zen

Another repeat…This one popped in my head while driving one day.  I was compelled, when I got to my destination, to sit in the parking lot and draw it before I went in. A very zen moment, I guess.

The book is getting full of new ones, just no scanner. If these earned their keep, I might have bought one by now. Until then I will stay green and keep recycling the old ones.

I love Twitter because of all the great material it provides. This was inspired by David Morris, the CEO of Dillanos Coffe Roasters. He posted the above saying to his Twitter page last week and, of course, I stole it (with his permission). His website is Dillanos.com and he is @coffeemaverick on Twitter. Thanks, David!

It’s Dead, Jim…

My scanner, that is. Actually, it’s not dead. Just not working at the moment. Apparently, when you have a printer/scanner all-in-one, the scanner will not work if the ink is low. Who knew? I sure didn’t.

My muse (my imagination, not the Mrs.) has been quiet lately so it’s not like I have a huge stack of stuff to post, so the timing is ok. So, while I work my way to the ink refill store, join me in a little Zen.

What’s funny about this one is I conceived it as I drove to see my therapist and drew it in the parking lot.

Hope to be back soon with new stuff. Any ideas you’d like to share?
