    All this month I have been doing a daily poetry challenge with my daughter. who is using the challenge as therapy for her bi-polar condition. This is my most recent contribution. I would show hers but she is planning to publish them all in a book and doesn't want them exposed outside of Facebook. If you are interested you can check her poems out (Star Spider) on Facebook. They are really quite brilliant. In point of fact this challenge has been a bit therapeutic for both of us. My new venture (Bullet Proof) is taking off very quickly, thanks in large part to Charlene Norman's energy and skill, and so anxiety is a bit of an issue for me as well. Jim Murray

    Dear @Gert Scholtz this is more than a birthday greeting, you have been touched with a Boscherini. A Boscherini is a very unique kind of buzz that is delivered in a very particular style which is self-evident when we see it. So happy birthday but remember also that your life has been enshrined with a full Boscherini and you are now are witness to and subject of this creative force.

    Laurent in this day of birthday notifications on social media it makes a great change to have a human being put mind to someone's birthday. I am a 10CC fan so it is easy to know the first song I think of when I hear the name Donna, so naturally it is "Donna" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jw5uhwunzSQ So happy birthday to Donna and good on you Laurent to take the lead on a personalized message, it sure beats an algorithm.

    BTW If you join my Facebook please do note that I am not 61 years old and I was not born 30 September 1955 - in fact my use of James Dean photo's on my Facebook page is the clue here - because I don't think it is any business of Facebook to have my actual birth date other than confirm that I am older than 13 years of age for legal purposes.

    How this Facebook data found its way into my beBee profile is deeply mystifying because here at beBee I found to my chagrin that my birthday had been entered by someone or at least synced with data from another social media source. In any case when job applications are submitted in my country, it is illegal for Human Resource departments to ask for my birth date on a job application - so why does it make it all right to have it online?

    Anyway back to Donna - yes indeed again Happy Birthday Donna !!!

The best Egyptian musician lived for twenty six years and his songs are still alive. If we add the life span of his songs then he has a life span of an oak tree.

    Personally, Pascal, I reckon that the best way to tell anxiety to bugger off is to break al those probs down to little bite size pieces of chocolate. After all who doesn't like chocolate? As for your expenditure problem, being of Scots origin, I never did pay the price and. consequently never did grow up. 👶🏻

    08/06/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    There is a reason why when we were young some of us thought more of Catcher in the Rye where the mask is on real tight when we were young. Now I celebrate J.D. Salinger for a totally different reason, that he managed to hold on to his privacy and did not caught up in the bubble of the fame that came his way.

    At 16 the mask may be more than just anxious, but an act also, at 56 the mask begins to drip off revealing the face of life with an age. That is exactly why I don't like personal branding, for this is a way of making the mask the socially acceptable persona - so I prefer the reality of skin, when we know we have been skin deep and our brand is body armor against a society still driven by economic anxieties. Want to see how skin deep - criticize a persons personal brand and watch the mask begin to bleed.

    #6 "Mental as Anything"? Not my cup of tea, Praveen, but your "unforgettable taste" of "spirits" below does bring me back to my university drinking days, decades ago, and the unforgettable taste of single malt Scotch whisky. Back then it was a 12 year old Glenmorangie or a Smith's Glenlivet. I guess, back then, my faith was simpler and mostly wrapped up in such distractions as a consistent QA/QC of barley, water, and of course the malting and distilling processes. These days my faith is less certain as I watch my two week old grandson grow up in a world where industrial greed and the short term goals and ignorance of our politicians drives our planet to the brink of .......

    Your clear awareness of Science is your Faith dear Ken,
    And that's all there is to Zen ;)

    Our home is but some space on Earth,
    The womb it was, before our birth;
    and a tomb it will be when we bite the dust! :)

    Yet, our spirit shall roam free,
    maybe as a scientific clutch of memories;
    like impressions gathered in haste,
    or an unforgettable taste.

    And LOL Ken, when you said your Spirit got lost it suddenly reminded me of this song from way back! It's a tangent but do check it out.

    #3 ah but see when I read a thinker such as you (I perused many of your articles on Sunday, they called to me) I ultimately am reading me as I process my thoughts and ponderings they inevitably lead to. So both of our Souls are grandly dancong. Then I'm googling Harvey and seeing this book is about goals for children if a subtext can be trusted but I haven't hopped into his mind and looked at the Source to reflect an opinion on that myself. Yet I'm happy at the moment that I reach tiny daily goals in my business bubble everytime I get to help someone find a new career home, and am thinking creativity is a goaless boundless sort of thingy that just happens, unpracticality be darned. And me oh my I Love it. :)

    By reading me you make me smaller but by reading yourself you enlarge my soul. There is a book which is as old as I am, both born in the year of 1961, and that book is ironically called Pen, Pencil and Brush by Harvey Weiss. This man must have been boundless in his creativity because the Open Library has listed 68 books by him


    The last and final one is dated 1961 and it is Pencil, Pen and Brush.

    What did I learn about Harvey Weiss. The first thing was to discern which Harvey Weiss it was. There were plenty of successful people called Harvey Weiss and why not - what a great Jewish name, how can one go wrong with a name like that?

    However with some careful digging I found tiny bits here and there that basically only told me what he did with a paper, pen and brush but very little on the life that held that pen, or pencil or brush and in Google Group I found references to his Obit. Apparently he was born in 1922 and died in 2007 and in between he created a lot stuff that reminds us that he had done something. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/alt.obituaries/_EqOkTepk6A and once upon his life he had good hands.

    #1 aha! I suspect I'm not a very practical person, I wonder? Practical from the pen or pencil pov? Wait, I'm neither, just me. And who knows what I was on about anyways, I might have been chasing fireflies. I did visit your practical wisdom of learning journeys for a reading session Sunday, along with Sinclair Lewis's It Can't Happen Here which I'm currently reading slowly, so I found some meaningful words to assist me (Thank You!) as I suppose I'm on a learning exploration of my own. :)

    The side by side layout can be accomplished by adding an image, though right now I found some trouble adding videos to buzzes but I have the patience to keep hitting the video linking until it appears in my buzz.

    My awareness of pens and pencils was highlighted by the NASA problem that pens leaked in space, and the answer to innovating a better pen that did not leak in space turned out to be a pencil.

    Is the Pi in Pencil because there is a Pi in Pencil but not in Pen?

    The practical value of words is meaningful.

    Onward in the unfolding, yes! My unfolding is jam packed with interviewing and cheering on my wonderful job seekers today instead of poetry, my favourite thing. But balance, right? I'm learning! Thank you all and hope you have a wonderful free state of mind and being day in which to create and follow your Heart's desires! Much Love!

    @Melissa Hefferman Well done. The unknowable unknowns that lead us to a new now that once it arrives, in that instance of newness, it too passes and causes us to both reflect and at the same time lead us ever onward to the edge of other unknown unknowables. Truly great post that makes one think about the linear and circular nature of it all.

    Évasion by Mohammed El mribte (From LI) @El mribte Mohammed (bB)

    derrière les barreaux
    Au fond d'une nuit sombre
    De l'intérieur d'une âme cassé
    Une lumière jaillit
    Une idée que j'ai eu
    Habitude devenu

    derrière les barreaux
    Au fond d'un coeur brisé
    Une vie vient de naître
    Une vie vient de naître
    Une vibration visée
    vers un espoir d'un grand désir
    vers une lecture massif
    avec grand plaisir
    à suivre...

    behind bars
    At the bottom of a dark night
    From the inside of a broken soul
    A light gushes
    An idea I had
    Habit became

    behind bars
    At the bottom of a broken heart
    A life has just been born
    A life has just been born
    A targeted vibration
    Towards a hope of a great desire
    Towards a massive reading
    with great pleasure

    The disguised poet- that is what I find from your first poem that I read from you @Sara Jacobovici.
    "reach and grasp, brush the fingertips
    of emotion, strain to touch the cells
    of the mind – live on live on
    immortal you are and I"

    Where have you been hiding your "poetic" talent?

    I remember reading poetry to my son when he was very young. The words and rhythm would rock him to sleep. Later in school he could always write interesting, pleasing poetry. Poetry definitely does things to the brain and words bring a different type of pleasure than music. Perhaps it is the subtle use of meaning and the sounds of words when spoken like onomatopoeia that stretch the brain in different ways. Thank you for bringing back that memory, @Laurent Boscherini.

    Grit is that 'extra something' that separates the most successful people from the rest. It's the passion, perseverance, and stamina that we must channel in order to stick with our dreams until they become a reality. - Travis Bradberry
