duct

Let’s unclog the duct. Fanatical cleaners will agree. The secret, of course, is to throw everything out. As fast as possible, to keep the duct clear. At what cost to keep the flow?

left

What was left on the table? What more could have been done? What was left behind, what position for the far right to exploit, leaving nothing left for the 99%.

withered

Withered. That’s what happens when you don’t take time to drink out of the well of refreshment, rejuvenation. When you don’t take time to give yourself the nourishment you need, your own unique set of nutrients: breath, music, love, sea salt, love

welcoming

Welcoming, surprisingly enjoyable music, considering it was an amateur music group and they were playing really hard music;. They didn’t play well yet the music was exciting and in fact nail biting, you wouldn’t that that would be enjoyable, sort of like viewing a train wreck, but it was enjoyable. Sometimes music isn’t about the music.

interested

I’d be very interested in finding the Secret. What secret, you say? The secret of what makes different people tick. I’m interested in interesting people. And interested in being interesting, interestingly enough. What interests do I want to develop? Hopefully lucrative interests be

support

Supporting my topic of And the Winner Is…it is about enjoying what you do without being focused on a number one goal but also being excellent. To relax, have a good time and not be focused on the competition and at the same time being able to support each other without being competitive. It is possible. Right?

motivated

Motivated to win. That’s what he was. I asked if he wanted to enter the contest. Sure, he said, he was thinking about it. But then he wasn’t sure he wanted to put the work in if he won to get to the next level. I hadn’t thought that far. To me being in the contest is enough. Winning is the frosting on that cake. But he said, why bother if you aren’t going to win?

selective

Selective. We can afford to be selective as to whom we hire, said the temp who answered the phone. It was great to be on the other side, even if that side was temporary, dishing out what she had received. A newly minted bachelor’s degree and a temp job was disappointing. She wanted to be selective, not just in a position to pretend to be selective.

active

Active. Alive. Advanced. Accelerating. A+ Appreciating the active lifestyle and activating the energy of others and activating the energy of yourself and then who knows just what that will activate?

» Posted By Ruth Levitsky On 03.20.2014 @ 8:26 am

Active. Active volcanoes. Active minds. Active hearts. Active pens. Active trains. Active me, active you, time to act, time to react, time to redact, to make a pact, to do something, now, even when, you don’t know how. Reactive. Proactive. Activate your self.

forefront

Be at the forefront. Don’t let the foreground go underground. Plan ahead. Be prepared. For anything. The forefront is the place to be. Don’t live in the past. Dwell in the glorious present which leads to a glorious future? What fore? Be fore it’s 2 L8

dealer

He was a dealer of dreams. A dealer of illusions. He made me think I was better than I was and my vision of success became an illusion. But this dealer of dreams had no idea that this hallucination of success, this vision, was soon to become a reality and that he turned out to have given her not such a bad deal after all.

terrain

It goes with the terrain. Terroir, it is called among the gourmets-for wine, cheese. From the land, part of the land, for good or bad, it is all to do with the territory, it goes with the territory, and you just hope that what you get goes with a good, delicious terrain.

» Posted By Ruth Levitsky On 03.12.2014 @ 10:48 am

The terrain wasn’t conducive to growth. But what goes with the terrain? That is for one to discover. There might be oil underground that will lead to riches. The soil may hide secret riches for those who are patient enough to undertake to discover what these riches are. if one doesn’t give up or give in.

witnessed

I witnessed the injustice. I was part of the injustice. And all I wanted was to save myself and also to fight the injustice. But without giving my name. Because I didn’t want to give up, even though with what I had witnessed, it would have been better to just walk away. But I didn’t want to walk away. I wanted to correct what I had witnessed. Butg sometimes, all you can do is walk away.

bowtie

Bowtie pasta. With lots of cheese and butter. The 4.99 pasta night Wednesdays is a good bowtie night at the local Bogetega. It comes with a thick slice of Italian bread, lemon water is on the table. A plastic hand will accept your grateful tip.

seated

Here I am seated, planted. Seated can be a place of growth, of focus, of change. Or of inertia. Physics isn’t everything say those who don’t understand science. A body in motion stays in motion? Like the ad taking up space in my brain, like my tail taking space in this chair. Please be seated.

» Posted By Ruth Levitsky On 02.26.2014 @ 8:01 am

Please be seated, they say. Where they tell you to sit. But I want to sit where I want to. Although in the past, it would be good to be told, so I would have someone to sit with. I wish they told someone to sit with me or gave us assigned seats and helped with social navigation for those socially challenged. B

emperor

I’d like to be an emperor. They are, well,emperioius, grand, regal and full of themselves. We all should get to feel like that. Sometimes, that is. Otherwise, it would be pretty obnoxious, even to ourselves. And boring.

compensate

what could compensate for the dissapointment, the disappointment when things don’t turn out the way you planned, when the equation doesn’t equal your expectatoins, when you expect the scales to balance, for life to be fair, but it isn’t, it won’t be, so you compensate in your expectations

talon

Didn’t I see your talons before, inserting yourself into my flesh? Be gone, talon, be gone. It’s time for your manicure and I’m your manicurist against talons that sink into unwitting flesh. Snip, snip and your power is gone. C’est fini pour toi!! Au revoir!

offset

Offset. Something. To compensate. One thing leads to another, the song says and one offset leads to another. A compromise. Not getting what you wanted and compensating for that with an offset. Eating your broccoli to offset eating that donut. Or eating the donut to offset the broccoli.

wavelength

Are you on the same page? The same wavelength? Some waves, let’s face it, are longer than others. I wish I could just google this right now, have a permanent link to my brain to access an online dictionary, an onramp to my own wavelength.

confide

Didn’t I confide to you yesterday? Everything. And did you keep it in confidence or post it all over the internet. Somehow this word is very familiar from yesterday-did someone break the confidence and give me this word again? A gift to reflect.

third

I took third in the Speech Contest last time for Humorous. I want to be first this time. But do I? On flute I’ve always sat third, to play the cool piccolo parts. Not everyone can be third. That has it’s own challenges and I took it for granted that everyone can play the third part.

orphans

Widows and orphans in typography. They will drive you crazy, once you discover who they are. Old fashioned typing class, old fashioned even in 1975, with the manual typewriter. So technical and such a skill. Now we type with your thumbs and most people don’t recognize a widow or orphan when they see one.

unkempt

Unkempt? Just what does that mean? Too many books, too many bags..and not organized. Unkempt, not in a straight line. Not clear. Too many directions. Like this writing contained only by the oneword time limit that allows for only so much unkempt-ness. But for me, unkempt is far superior to “kempt”.

struggle

What have you struggled with? You look back and you wonder why you found it so hard in the first place. And that made the struggle worth it, even though you had no choice at the time. And hopefully you’ll remember this lesson, just in time for your next struggle. And you wonder just when that will be and if you’ll remember the lesson you just learned.

clasp

Clasping at grasping at straws for excuses, clasping to hold everything together when you are running late, unprepared and not where you are supposed to be. Clasping on to the illusion that you have your act together and hoping you aren’t clasped against a wall in your excuses as to why you weren’t where you should be.

unplanned

Everything is unplanned, even planned things. Like last week: all the stuff cancelled due to snow, despite all the planning. And sometimes things work out so well, you swear it was planned. Except that often the best laid plans lead to disappointment so why bother planning? Although people really believe that they can plan and everything is in their control.
