I am hated for loving

This is a word I did not know. I read it on someone's blog here and had to look it up because it did not understand the context in which they used it to describe themselves. As I was commenting on one of my blogs, the conflict of this word came into my mind. As such, I wanted to comment on the...
I smile a lot. More than not smiling I would say. Oh yes, there are moments when I don't smile but that is specifically to convey non verbally something to another and it is coupled with a situation and not randomly dealt. This is infrequent though and I have to calculate not smiling because it...
For the last couple of weeks we had family visiting. It was really good to spend time with 3 of my nieces and nephews. It's hard to spend time with family for me. We all live every where else and far away. We had 9 people in the house, but we have plenty of room for them so it was comfortable...
I know the power that it has had with me. I have cried many times to various smith/moz songs throughout different times of my life, albeit it's been a while. So for me, "getting there" to what's inside with a song is not strange. But take an average person not used to "getting there" and it is...
So why did I stop here. Information about boxes of smiths/morrissey stuff I had collected in my teens and early twenties. http://www.morrissey-solo.com/threads/129588-I-need-history-on-this-can-t-find-on-internet?p=1986806701&viewfull=1#post1986806701 My first post on solo - nov 2013...
Morrissey got pretty beat up on the boards today. In the midst of all that, I carry bits of a better time with him through my life. A little bit of that came up tonight. We have visiting family with us so we have been going nonstop the last couple of days. Tonight I went into my daughters...
"On the southern San Mateo County coast, Año Nuevo is the site of the largest mainland breeding colony of the northern elephant seal." I arranged my schedule today to get home before noon. Grabbed the family and headed for the coast. Ended up being in the 70's and clear. My wife and I haven't...
I am not that crazy about food. I mean, I eat because I have to live. I don't have fancy tastes and enjoy very simple food. My wife and I go to the big box every 5-6 weeks and buy our quick foods. We are constantly on the move and I eat about every hour and a half. My wife eats very similar to...
My love of flashlights started when my kids were young. We were camping almost every month and taking multi week trips around the country during summer. Every night, the ritual was to walk around on the forest trails, turn over logs, peer into crevices, look into the trees. All with the desire...
After dinner, I was doing the dishes. My wife snaps a picture of me unexpectedly while she giggles away. I ask her what she is doing. She smiles and says she has sent the picture to her sister. I smile and continue the cleaning. I ask her to send me the picture as I don't think I have ever had a...
Winding down the day. Checking the inbox, I find the coach got a photo of this weekends race. Got a podium finish in a very hard race. We climbed 1300 hundred feet in the first 32 minutes and averaged 24 miles an hour (when this photo was snapped). Early this morning I did 48 miles on the...
Sitting in a layback plush comfortable lounge chair at the backyard of a friends house. Listening to Pearl Jam's yellow moon on the stereo. I can smell our spiced peppers caramelizing on the barbecue. A warm late afternoon, but the hazing clouds are rolling in. Very beautiful, peaceful and...
"You're in the war, you're in the fight. You want to show your strength. You want to show you're the strongest. And then you win and you have this feeling, this new experience......" Thinking like this, one does not recoil, complain and hide from others. I think you can't help being...
Well processing a great long weekend. Got some emails of great photos at races over the holiday. So here it is in reverse. Sunday, I hade a race. This is the standout photo. For perspective we are cornering at around 30 mph. Saturday, got out and did what I do, USPSA. Took Morrissey...
I still listen to Morrissey. So let me explain. I was out of town over the weekend racing. We had eight teammates going and we all broke it up by carpooling. I picked up the guy closest to me. It was a several hour drive. I was listening to a shuffled up playlist in the vehicle from my...
I am a visual person all the way. Pictures are something I like to explore of a captured moment in time, frozen for any who gaze upon, to wonder. I was going through a file cabinet and found this envelope. I did not put it in the cabinet. My wife and I have separate cabinets for our mementos...
This morning Last night. Stayed late in the city with friends. 9pm and a lot of commuters heading to the peninsula. Every now and then I will get a wild hair and change the routine. I do this periodically and it's like a breath of fresh air. I have done this one before. I like the...
The first time I heard The Smiths. It was mid 1986, I was at a friends house with a girl I fancied. Since he lived on the border of high school districts, he had friends that went to a neighboring high school. At the time I was listening to what was referred to as new wave and punk music. Goth...
I am doing a mid season training block of zone 2 heart rate distance riding, no racing, just long steady distance. Todays 70 plus miler was the last day of three, 200 mile weeks. You see, when you are racing it is very intense and volume has to come down or you can't recover. So today I...
What if that were the case. What would you do today. Who would you be for yourself and someone else. Who are you inside. What will you ignite in yourself that will make you shine. At these ideals, I fail regularly but put together some really good days in the attempts. It can be easy to just...
