Jeb Corliss: A Lesson in Flying?

Disclaimer: may be disturbing for some viewers

Is Jeb Corliss suicidal? From the fate of his professional adventurers mates who were less lucky than he, I am inclined to say “yes”, I admit. Continue reading

short blog-work of long lives

 

i am always going nowadays, a work
in progress, and god seems to work that way.
and blogs are a life in progress,
and progress creates lives that way.

you are a life-blog at work
and I am a player of words working at
processing blogging life, in a way
that shows progress, like a life-roll, every day.

and god works in you.
and you progress along your way
playing and working, and blogging
to work at life processes. and that helps

lifes blog-roll of time moving always on, to stay.

They FU@%||*#@ you up, your mum and dad.

Rhetorical Composing MOOC: a 10 Week Long Carnival of Writing

1st MOOC Experience as a Contributing Writer

MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course. I registered to many of them through www.coursera.org out of curiosity and for cultural enrichment. Don’t be fooled by the generosity (courses are ‘mostly’ free) and  the ‘benevolence’ and support of the educational teams: they are quite demanding in terms of reading and activity completion; i.e. time consuming .

To Detox or Not to Detox ? That Is the Question

It’s at least a month I want to go on my bi-annual detox (I’ve already missed the Fall one), but instead I go for the chocolate bar or the cookie jar. Spring is particularly suited for detox and I might miss the propitious season for it with my procrastination. Why can’t I follow through this time, though I used to be so steadfast with detox before? At the beginning, I thought it was because I was too rigid with this process: all or nothing type of thinking. But it seems to be the contrary that is actually at play, I reckon. Maybe I don’t want to be rigid anymore with this or with anything else for that matter. Maybe I am more respectful of my rhythm and other’s and I am rebelling against the health and wellness fanatic in me? I even stopped lecturing my daughter and husband on what to eat and why. I forget to take my supplements. My husband told me recently that I am more fun to be around [thanks Jon] and my daughter gives me more cuddles. Continue reading

Peter Schlemiel and Icarus

What’s in a Shadow, Dear Michal?

“ Sell me Thy shadow” entreated the obsequious man
in the gray coat. No treachery in asking
‘What’s in a shadow that lures you so, my man’
‘Shlemiel, for thy lovely, lovely shadow
I give you Fortunatus magic purse’ Continue reading

‘Something Fishy’ :Wordpress Theme of my Life

I like the theme I chose for my blog . It is really spot-on. I don’t know if it was my inanity with technology (accident) or providence but the first one I chose and thankfully quickly discarded, I remember, was quite ascetic. It’s as if something in me knew what was good for me and nudged me to the “something fishy” theme, as if to tell me, you think yourself so serious, not so. I only realized that this was exactly the liberating theme for me, when Nancy Shapiro at http://commonthreadcoaching.wordpress.com/expressed to me its potential in the following terms: “Michal! I love the theme you use…it is playful, light, and also an apt metaphor for coaching itself…fishing into the deep for what truly matters for each person.” My “daemon” and Nancy knew better.
