This is the story of Max the tree,a tree that is so wonderious and giving that I had to give it a name,but instead when I become upset I start to see thing differently.I had wish Max the tree was with me today to help me feel safe and secure for Max is a tree so old and wise and arms that reach from one horizen to another,to form a perfect circle to hide and protect one who seeks it.I wish I was a sturdy and strong as he for Max must be as old as time its self able to stand alone and strong… Continue

Not one day in anyone's life is an uneventful day, no day without profound meaning, no matter how dull and boring it might seem,no matter whether you are a letter carrier or a queen, a shoeshine boy or a movie star, a renowed philospher or a downs syndrome child.Because in every day of your life, there are opportunities to perform little kidnesses for others, both by concious acts of will and unconscious examples.Each smallest act of kindness even just words of hope when they are needed, the… Continue

Hi there its been sometime since I sat a wrote one of my wonderful blogs.The reason I write them when I do is to help me think through my life and to see it in words instead of through actions.I was out shooting some rolls of film trying to remember why I love being out doors so much when I began to feel so alone.I was walking among the Lilacas,and cherry blossoms,the smell was a mixture of both sweet and strange.The wind was blowing as lightly as a whisper when I was returning to a time of my… Continue

I just got today's hairy thought: Chat has, as all chats do, devolved into a dullard's grind of "how's the weather" and "hi" and "where do you live?", yada yada yada. No thought allowed zone.
Fine, but why not try to infiltrate neuronic activity into the zone? I commit myself to inserting a non-sequiter at least once a day into the chat. Something meaningless, trivial, pointless - another words, miles above whatever's going on in the chat zone.
I, as the arbiter of… Continue

Yes, I have been here and said this before, on the old TBD I got soooooooooooooooo much flack when I posted on my profile/page that I did not want to befriend MARRIED or IN Relationship and here I would add the "It's Complicated" gents.
I did not post that here and once again I am getting more friend invites from married dudes than from single ones.

In a book "The Moral Society: A Rational Alternative to Death," John David Garcia presents a revolutionary ethical theory much in the spirit of Spinoza. The author shows that through the ethical development of art, science and technology man can achieve far more than the advocates of supernatural Utopias ever imagined.
What is the "Game of Life?" According to the author it is a game in which we are the pieces as well as the players. It is a game in which the stakes are… Continue

So, I'm taking a day of R and R today, and I thought I'd try out this 'blog' stuff that all the hip kids go on about. I'm still relatively new to this TBD thing (7 weeks, I think...), and while the demise of the old site hit me a lot harder than I thought it would, I came to the new site with fervor. Being relatively new, I missed out on the birthing pains that a lot of the veterans went through, but frankly, I wouldn't have cared one iota if the new site would have been nothing more than… Continue

It's time to act and stand strong and allow the future generation's to see that we are not this selfless group of people that left behind a mess that is so destructive and ugly . Make… Continue

Hi - I was on the first Tee Bee Dee site. Recently, I got the Message of Doom - entitled
Message from RobinWolaner: A Message I Didn't Want to Send. I thought TBD was doing great! I am sorry that the group has to end there, but glad it is starting here. I will try to re-join the groups I was already in and do my profile too. I plan to be proactive about adding friends this time.
It's a lot more fun with friends!

Many TBDers have planted their flags here, like the Americans planted a flag or two on the moon. We marked the territory, so we consider the job done. Were not really there, but we went there once.
The Ning TBD seems in a frozen, in-between place. So many folks from old TBD seem to be here, they've planted their flags, but they're hollow accounts, place-holders for when or if their true love sinks beneath the waves.
I am a traitor to my TBD-land, I find it easier to move… Continue

Have you ever noticed how in social networking, this new world, that you think you know somebody based on very little information, usually a brief post and an avatar. If the avatar is not their picture, you develop instantly a whole conception of them, vivid and detailed, whether you would like or dislike meeting them, etc. Then they post a picture of themselves, maybe a few years old, and your shocked: OMG, that is sooo not what I expected! They are white, they are gray or black or green, they… Continue
