• Tea Monkey commented on the post, maestro 4 years, 9 months ago

    maestro? not today. Just a humble grandma waiting for the next time we get to be with our grandson. Priorities sure can shift.

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, entitled 5 years, 1 month ago

    entitled – skip this. Its what’s left when you’ve already been shortchanged and you’ve been taught that this is what you then get. Compare that to self accomplishment which we would much rather have. Ironic that when there is not enough money our society creates situations of entitlement, but its often for things that look shiny on the outside,…[Read more]

    writing like prophets
    soapbox standing in my mind
    who am I kidding?

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, sill 5 years, 8 months ago

    sill: our window sills are crammed with stuff, a young boy’s dream for bounty. He looks over to us first then dashes over to explore as much as he can before we can catch him.

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, revenue 5 years, 8 months ago

    wait, can I do this one over? That “your money or your life” book (now a financial integrity and free website) has a phrase about revenue that has stuck in my head:
    Am I making a liviing or a dying?
    Maybe I need a re-venue.

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, revenue 5 years, 8 months ago

    re-venue is more like what I’d like to write about. A fresh place, a fresh view for what I’m working on these days.
    Just don’t want to trade my old problems for new ones.

    celebrity shouldn’t only be for famous people because shouldn’t it be for a person we celebrate?
    I celebrate you.

    backlit fort coverings bring joy to the little monkey that is my grandson. Things you do with grandchildren you can’t with your own children are just beginning.

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, dissolve 6 years, 4 months ago

    Everyday trying to solve the problem as if running against a brick wall when all I need to do is dissolve the negativity and worry inside and jump in and play and laugh and enjoy what we have.

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, husband 6 years, 7 months ago

    husband where are you
    working nights while I work days
    ships and merrygorounds don’t cut it
    but the love post-its sure do help.
    I miss you.

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, promise 6 years, 8 months ago

    promise is not always
    yet we tend to think that it will be so
    pressure or safety?

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, arts 6 years, 10 months ago

    When will the world realize that the arts is not a genre, subject or category, it is a way of living. And a darn better way of living at that.

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, charge 6 years, 11 months ago

    living life is not about being entertained.
    charge forth and be in the real moment.

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, flex 7 years ago

    I want to just pound out on these keys the toughness of today – it seemed like all the students wanted to flex their behavior to see if the rules still applied. They do, even with all the compassion we feel for […]

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, stillness 7 years ago

    stillness is something I’m really looking forward to feeling again. Things have felt so chaotic inside, that I’m not moving fast enough, even though I am probably moving too fast.

    Stillness needs internal […]

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, refuse 7 years ago

    refuse to slide into autopilot
    most of the time anyway
    is it satisfying when you do?

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, want 7 years, 1 month ago

    more time
    less distractions
    more of his interruptions
    less worrying
    more chocolate.

    what a monday word
    so busy with lists, why think about ideas?
    concept is better

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, approval 7 years, 1 month ago

    Approval:
    First we seek approval, then we hope it doesn’t matter, then we hope we don’t get approval. Or reverse this for men.

  • Tea Monkey commented on the post, texts 7 years, 1 month ago

    texts: So I have 60 seconds to write about texts. It makes me wish I had a better sense of being able to write meaningfully. The only way to do that is to do this!
