  • JustHew+You - "The Devil..." - 2021-12-01

     

    “The devil made me do it.” Did he? Did he really?

     

    We’ve all heard people say that from time to time. Sure, most often it’s in jest or a phrase used in a sarcastic sense. I mean, unless someone is truly going down the “possessed by demons” route of belief, there’s not many people who will believe the devil MADE you or me do anything.

     

    Incidentally when I was a wee lad learning to play solitaire, (yes with real cards) my Grandmother had me convinced that the pone was Old Scratch himself. I wanted to believe her,(more)

  • JustHew+You - Astrological Insecurity - 2021-11-30

     

    What’s an Astronomical insecurity? Sure, we’ve all likely got some of those too. But, have you ever thought about what it means to be “astrologically insecure?”...I’ll give you a moment.

     

    What comes up for you? Were the Mayan’s astrologically insecure? Well they were wrong about 2012, so that must make them insecure.

     

    If the world had ended they would have been correct and therefore not actually insecure. The fact that few if any of us would have been here to witness the fulfillment of their Armageddon prophecy i(more)

  • JustHew+You - Its Bleeding Edge - 2021-11-29

     

    Bleeding Edge…

     

    You are the light at the end of the tunnel

    Your soul the headlamp shining

     

    You are the darkness it penetrates

    Your pain the black fuel of the tender

     

    You are the earth and the tracks and the ties

    Your breath the wind broken by the whistle

     

    Your eyes the marker jewels

    You are boilerman and baby lifter

     

    Your days lived fill the cars

    You are the night owl and the drag

     

    Your moment the space cut by th(more)

  • JustHew+You - Mine Your Own Salt! - 2021-11-28

     

    Yeah back to it tomorrow, just another day in the salt mines with another variant on the way just in time for the Christmas season.

     

    That’s right…any other virus you may have just got knocked down another notch on the list. Think about what could have been cured if this kind of focus was directed to something like HIV, or actually curing cancer.

     

    Anthropologist Margaret Mead (1901-1978) is credited with saying “We are continually faced with great opportunities which are brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems”. (more)

  • JustHew+You - "IT's Just Floatin'" - 2021-11-27

     

    It’s fine, we all float down here…right friend? You know where we’re at…or at least where you’re at.

     

    This word FLOAT has been coming up frequently for me lately. Could be the steady rains this time of year and all the detritus we can see floating along the sidewalks and the puddles toward the Deadlights.

     

    Could be that in order to “go with the flow” you and I have to be able to stay afloat…either of our own accord, with the assistance of a floatation device or passively as a bloated corpse. I only say that b(more)

  • JustHew+You - Who Ya Gonna Call? - 2021-11-26

     

    Who Ya Gonna Call? Everyone knows the pop culture answer from the movie theme song…or at least they should.

     

    I suppose by that simple statement I’m somehow dating myself. In 1984 Ghostbusters was the first movie I went to without an adult. It was back when PG-13 meant something, if it ever did.

     

    If you look up nostalgia, one of the first definitions that comes up is, “A bittersweet longing for things, persons, or situations of the past.” And if you’re over the age of 13 you can likely come up with something that fi(more)

  • JustHew+You - N-O-N-S-E-N-S-E - 2021-11-25

     

    How you feeling friend? Did you get a serving of nonsense with your turkey day

     

    Generally speaking, there’s plenty of nonsense to go around on holidays such as Thanksgiving. Friends and family, merrymaking and eating or drinking too much…any of yours turn into turkeys before it was all said and done?

     

    You and I could share some epic stories of how these days sometimes go and perhaps one day we will…but not today. I certainly hope today was full of love and light for you, but just in case it wasn’t I want to share one(more)

  • JustHew+You - THX 4 WUT - 2021-11-24

     

    “Be not ashamed of mistakes and thus make them crimes.” – Confucius (551 BC – 479 BC) I’ve also heard him credited with saying “Man who stand on toilet high on pot” but that one’s a bit sus in my opinion.

     

    It’s Thanksgiving eve 2021 as I’m putting this down…no idea when you might be picking it up. Do you ever get sick of those people who want you to live a thankful life filled with gratitude? Okay, let’s not make it personal, let’s focus on the idea…on the theme itself.

     

    I guess for some people, a(more)

  • JustHew+You - "Cooley's DBT Therapy" - 2021-11-23

     

    You read it right…a little ”DBT” therapy focusing on “Self-Destructive Zones”.

     

    And before I get in trouble with the grammar police I’m not talking about dialectical behavior therapy. That would be like saying ATM machine now wouldn’t it, friend?

     

    It’s likely that you don’t need “Cooley’s DBT Therapy”…and it’s just as likely that it wouldn’t work for you. In fact, it’s not intended to fix anyone or deliver any results whatsoever.

     

    So why bring it up then? Well before I got in(more)

  • JustHew+You - Sandbagging Miracles? - 2021-11-22

     

    Are you a miracle worker? Maybe only sometimes?

     

    I’m not sure about the actual divine miracles that people talk about in order to become a saint or something like that. Okay, let’s take a step back…the word miracle has some pretty significant religious baggage. But it’s a pretty handy word to describe an amazing event that most, if not all would have expected to be virtually impossible.

     

    More likely it’s the things that you can do that people seem to think are miraculous. Is it to you, or do you get surprised by th(more)

  • JustHew+You - YOUR "NRT" - 2021-11-21

     

    The vast majority of the time and answer to any given question or the outcome to any given situation that's pending for you is going to go one of two directions. It's either going to go in the direction of what you want, or in the direction of what you don't want. Gonna be very few cases where it stays completely neutral.

     

    So when you're in the pocket and the answer or the outcome is out of your control, your chips are all in. Your cards are all on the table and you're waiting. What do you do?

  • JustHew+You - HOW MANY KNOW - 2021-11-20

     

    How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop? According to the narrator in the commercial, the world may never know. Do you know?

     

    I’m sure I tried to figure it out as a youth, certain that providing that answer would lock me in the annuls of fame and I would forever be known as “the tootsie pop kid” or something equally ridiculous. Fact is I’ve not exercised the patience or discipline to count and find out…at least not yet.

     

    Did you know that some people have? Yes, they’ve made (more)

  • JustHew+You - A Club That Would? - 2021-11-19

     

    "I don't want to belong to any club that would accept me as one of its members." Thank you for that one Groucho Marx.

     

    And boy don't we feel it some days ourselves? Ever been a member of a club or organization and had any thoughts like Groucho above? Legend has it he was referring to the Friar's Club or the Delaney Club or some such other organization. I'd guess you've felt that way too.

     

    Perhaps you joined something voluntarily and later found that maybe it wasn't quite what you thought it was in the beginning. Certain reli(more)

  • JustHew+You - How Long Is Long Enough - 2021-11-18

     

    How do you know when you've waited long enough? Is there a limit to your patience?

     

    Patience is a virtue right? That's what they say. I think they are the same people who would have you deny yourself the good things in life.

     

    Are there reasons to not rush headlong into the midst of a new situation? Sure, we've all moved too fast or too carelessly at some point in our lives and likely have the scars to prove it. If you've battled addiction...and I have, they'll tell you not to make any big decisions for at least a year.
