The philosophy of Blurtso

 Peace of mind

is the product of self respect.


The more I can leave behind,

the lighter my load,

and the lighter my load,

the more I can take with me.


I free my mind to the day,
I feel the sounds, the colors, the breeze, and I remember this day, 

which is every day, 

a lifetime.

  Most points of view 

are too pointed.

The less I am me, 

the more I am what I see and hear. 

The moment I become nothing,

​I will become everything.

Harlan was talking a lot about mindfulness yesterday. 

I wonder what he meant? 

I wonder if it's anything like stomachfulness? 

I'll have to ask him the next time I see him, if I'm not too focused on the present 

to remember. 

 A lot of people seem frustrated.

They seem to think the world, 

or someone

owes them something.

I don't understand that.

I feel lucky

just to be here.
