The Shock of the New

A lot of changes crashing around inside the Blimp. Your captain is in no shape for flying this contraption.

To start off, a quote from Anne Lindbergh, wife of Charles, but very much her own aviator:

“Is there anything as horrible as starting on a trip? Once you’re off, that’s all right, but the last moments are earthquake and convulsion, and the feeling that you are a snail being pulled off your rock.”

Feel ya, Anne.

I will be moving to Little Italy this weekend. Wrote a blog on The Science of Naming for an art site to be announced soon. Won an good book from James Hutchings over on Fighter Writer (Thanks again, JC!). Working on a screenplay for the Philadelphia Screenplay Fest.

Biggest change: I’m collecting my writing projects into a new creative services agency for artists and technologists, Cre8tiveIT.

I’m looking for freelance copywriters and graphic artists to join me on bigger projects, BTW.

So, yeah. Rough week on the Blimp. Stow your tray tables, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

What is meditation?

From the outside looking in, meditation is a practice of sitting in silence. Your silence, not the silence of others. Accomplishing this provides you with loads of patience, dedication and focus.

From the inside looking in, meditation is about observing one’s mind and one’s thoughts. It’s NOT about letting go, it’s not about quieting your mind. Quieting your mind is impossible if there is noise and you try to fight that noise. It only creates more noise.

Instead you must separate from your thoughts and observe them from a distance. In Buddhism, we call this observer/observed.

You detach your self from your thoughts (observed) and observe them from a distance. This create awareness of your awareness.

How does this help you in business?

Relaunching the Blimp

This is no technological breakdown. This is the road…
Helium blimp Today I am relaunching the Blimp (BLog Is MicroPilot) with a focus on History, Travel and Meditation. These topics will sharpen as I figure out why we are here, how must one live as a philosopher, how to endure the thorns and claws of an angry world, and why a blog would be able to help with any of that. I welcome guest blogs from fellow triberrs and all well-reasoned comments.

From the quiet calm above the clouds, we will become our own panopticon.
