THYSM

Pocket Mind Map

The first time ever in my life, of holding and folding paper, I expanded the To Do list. My unruly, never-going-to-get-done-to-do-list.



THYSM: Treasure Hunt Your Star Map

…  a hands-on management tool; a Pocket Mind Map for your labyrinth way home.

Instructions to follow.

First: put a T Topic and a Star on each section.

Next to the star, note personal keyword planet moons, for each Star Topic. Yes … personal keywords.

For instance: Toys .. list your favorite toys. Etc.

A Treasure Map has a single X marks the spot. Our life treasures are made up of many spots. Let’s call them out.

The star map will allow you draw lines between the constellations in YOUR life. You will see shapes and patterns. You will see you.


THYSM is simply a way to get found.

__________________________________________

TOPICS: Tips • Toys • Tools • Trials • Tacos • 

Talents •Tickets • Terrors • Totems • Trinkets • 

Triumphs • Tribulations • Transformations • Transgressions


What else? The whole alphabet. Go for it.


Requirements for a Pocket Mind Map: 

One half a regular file folder or a sheet of card stock.

Measure a bit. Make 6 sections nearly even. Do not be concerned about exact. This is a pocket mind map. When you are on the trail you won’t mind that this thing isn’t exact. Before folding, score the measured sections lightly with a ballpoint pen. It folds better.


(Breaking News -  sad note! This might all be done easier with a dozen 3x5” cards and a rubber band. Let me repeat: Might be done easier.)


Happy Trails Text me when you get home.









Completely Naked

 Completely Naked


I’m calling off my search for God 

and going into recovery mode.

The ghost dogs are howling.


If you care about our separation

I can certainly meet you back at 

the Garden of Eden.


Without our notions 

we all will be received

completely naked.

Poem



Arm Wrestling

 Arm Wrestling
(or wait* lifting, maybe)


Elbows down, palms 
gently, fitting together.
Wait until I say go.

Meanwhile, facing each 
other, eyes closed or not.
Wait. Wait. Wait, 
until I say go.

there it is ... Wait. Wait. 
the tingling radiance,

Ah … Go! Go! Go!

This wrestling a rouse,
a hug without hugging.
Smile. Radiate joy.
Everyone wins.


Asterisk for the listeners

*wait is spelled w a i t.

 THYSM


Treasure Hunt Your Star Map

A legend on your map home.

Put a Star on each Topic section.

Note personal keyword planet moons for each Star Topic.

Also a Pocket Mind Map, hands on management tool for the unruly To Do list. A fine example of an Already Being list you keep in your heart pocket.


I am entertaining myself. I highly recommend such to you.

Surfing the tsunami

 It’s not that I 
don't care about 

whatever but my 
priority lists suffered 

a 6.5 Richter and 
I am surfing the

tsunami
now.

Pocket Mind Map

 Pocket Mind Map


This requires a ruler, a ballpoint pen*, and about half a file folder, or sheet of card stock. Measure, score, and rule, or not, fold along first, then thirds. It will be bulky, but you do not need another hard surface when making notes. Fold it and focus your mind. Expand your traditional to do list with a larger sheet of paper. 

  • * If you do not want ballpoint markings on your blank map, use a screwdriver or butter knife to make the scores.

In the winter spring of ‘23 my To Do list, and the greater projects list was getting unruly. I could not sese how it would all work out.

And I simply needed to add more space. I could focus my mind on a single thing for a minute and then fold it away. 

So I folded a piece of card stock. After a lifetime of holding pieces of paper, I finally folded a piece of card stock into six panels. Simple wonders.

I hope you find it useful. I'm having a ball ... ahem ahem ... greater clarity and productivity.

June One Moon Whatever

June 1
9:52 PM.

I stepped out the front door to look at the moon to my right. I look to the left, north, as if - habit - traffic. The moon … whatever.

My Iranian neighbor was out, spritzing his car. And north beyond him, the Chinese neighbor fellow was out also spritzing or not.

And me, in my Dalai Lama, white knight shirt, turned immediately back indoors.

I have no wish for incidental conversation. And there's this poem to compose. No time to wax, or wane, or waste.

We can Google the moon if we need to. Fuck it.
