"The Human Circuit"

-Energy and Effort.-
It was easy being lonely in the wilderness, high up on the side of a mountain. The brain was well aware of the score and made it clear every time the heart sent out a pang. “Enough! We are miles away from anywhere. No one is going to hear you.”

So, there was work… constant energy and effort… chore after chore. Trying to make it to the next day.

-Structure and Routine.-
Living in the city was more complicated. Less work. More interaction. Posturing. Planning. Waiting for a turn… or permission. The brain can become confused. “The heart is sending out pangs… constantly sending out pangs… they never stop... but no one is responding. Why not? There are people everywhere. What is wrong with them?”

The brain has to be taught about relationships and how they are built and maintained by structure and routine.

-Emotion and Logic.-
Emotional is not the opposite of logical.
Emotion is energy.
Logic is structure.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.
