    A Semantic Meander – What Keeps Me Young? 


    I have decided that a semantic re-mix is my interpretation on the comparative ‘romantic tie-fix’ .  I am not being one to attach to belief; the sense in sensibility experientiates a mindful approach to a non-fixed continuum.  What keeps me young? my mindset … beyond the paradigms, the stereotypes and the awkward silence of what someone else expects me to become;  because, to be come, I have already been; there! I was there.

    Human connectivity is so much more than psychology and all the human science can ever imagine to try and articulate & test.

    In fact I think beyond the academic possibility the response ability is about the articulation of it’s unique ability.

    … I tuned tuned into Phil Smith and the positively inspiring dialogue around the life ability of distinguished Centanarians.  I missed her name; but she inspired me.  She talked about having lost her life partner after 52 years together and how she is re-learning at a distinguished age.  Not aged, elderly or the frail, I have to connect with a sense of distinction.  To reach life in distinction will keep me free from attachment to material wealth and mutually connected to a mindset that plays a symphony within the orchestra of life.  I guess sometimes to conduct an orchestra one has to turn it’s back on the past & look to the music to play in the heart as a mindful concerto.

    Have a happy day I am going to be engaged by the energy of Steve Biddulph today – I am the change I wish to see in the world!

    Gates open to Jobs 

    Mother Board Breaking News …

    Roving reporter Crystal Keys shares the recent rumours that …

    Left brain Bill Gates and Right brain Steve Jobs collaborate their approach, style and communicative approach to deliver the epic design brand name ‘PeerVine’.  Running on the values of authentic strength based software programming the new “PeerVine’ will revolutionalize a platform for users to integrate their learning and adaptability styles to partner with others who want to make a move to a parallel operating system named ‘pairs’ (protocol aligning information resource systems).

    When big names start to collaborate and expand the economic advantage for humanity – humanity starts to understand that beyond windows as revolving doors,  gates will create  jobs in a mindful effort to balance a trade of economies on a sustainable human scale.

    You might ask, did I hear this on the grapevine? apples do grow on trees and pears ripen from the inside – is it time to create a new tapestry? is this the thread of things to come – ‘PeerVine’ breaking the barriers to equal participation ‘online’.

    How did you learn to Remember? 

    Children in Khorixas, Namibia
    Image via Wikipedia

    If one learned to remember – then when should we do it?  There is one thing about parenting I just realized. My youngest daughter said to me “Mum how I am supposed to remember things that I forget”. I had to think about that because I put myself into the mind of asking that exact question and I came up with – often I don’t remember something; it’s not that I forget, but then who reminds us to remember? How do we remember as adults? We have things in place to remind us, but how often do we rely on part of our brain to recall things that are important and recall those things timely? We have to remember everyday to look at the calendar or the diary; but for children? I pondered that thought and thought – wow; I have not forgotten things – I just haven’t remembered them. There are the easy things like – wake up, get up, get dressed, make your bed, put your pj’s away, choose breakfast – eat breakfast, pick up your lunch, clean your teeth, wash your face, pack the bag – what goes in the bag; homework, library books, get your hat … the list is endless & it reverses itself at the end of the day. To teach an 8 year old child to prompt her memory of things she must be aware of changing conditions everyday – not the fixed; but the changing – for example, … the “wear the dress on Thursday it’s Choir” – but take shorts as well, after school is Cricket – it is a huge dynamic; especially when she needs to be aware of her external world at the same time. No wonder they have random unexplainable sick days! That’s my daily dilemma and my challenge to remember as her parent in a chaordic world.

    How to Killer Creator 

    Are you aware; how many parents and other individuals, almost exclusively rely on the supposed expertise of authorities? In my homeschooling community there are several stories of how more responsible parents had to take their kids out of school because they were being forced by school officials to take ADHD medication (what better way to suppress creativity). What would Mick Dodson say? Anyway enjoy this clip – I did!

    The Student Weaver 

    charm-bracelet-1How best demonstrate a working model transitioning from adolescent to adult modeling the correlation of social and environmental factors influenced by peer pressure in society? How the what! do you do that?

    How do students identify habit forming behaviors before the habits are formed without personally being able to identify them? Resulting in the restriction the Mental wellbeing of their future?

    What measures are in place at this level of development to guide, teach, support and roll out demonstrations demonstrating Mental wealth as a critical health issue today for tomorrow?

    Brace yourself! – think of a bracelet …

    All the subjects are there and the links between should create the relativity to “individuality” in life but who teaches what is relative to what? Life is the theme of this bracelet; the links are the knowledge and the attachments should be life’s skills and tools for self-discovery, self-understanding and self-preservation.  But who has time to convey that? this way? too busy.

    I have had to teach my daughter; after understanding she had to be at peace with all the locations of her classes; how to negotiate and balance times for homework, fun and chores. Her day has another aspect other than the previous 3 and that is; school.  High School.  High time for some other factors to start to rise to the height that students need in the adolescent transitional period of their life.

    My point is. For the parents and carers who are not in-touch with the lives of their adolescents who is going to teach them these inter-active skills? – who teaches them how to identify thoughts; string events together and recognize patterns to keep away from harm and seek support – most bored youngsters will try anything once! and hey if it leaves you with a “feeling” that is different to the ordinary of before – then?

    It is stressful not to have a demonstrated working model.  Could you imagine if we got through High School and didn’t know how to pick up the phone and call someone for help when it was required? Or; we wanted to purchase a vehicle and the model couldn’t be demonstrated? – but hey! It looks good?

    When one has a broken leg; one is hindered by the ability to run – when one is  bothered by worry and concern how does one know that;  if not for another’s observance?  Who has time today to observe and proactively demonstrate a working example of “how to set things straight”;  to assume one can “fix” ones problem is a smelly paradigm and it ignorantly takes the power from the person; to demonstrate is the orchestration of identity’s empowerment; which is a global necessity for the future – the youth; our youth.

    Red My Post? So What! 

    I read this in the Courier Mail today – I don’t see Red – I just read it … and …

    Queensland Teachers Union president Steve Ryan hung up on The Courier-Mail after claiming the kit did not exist and the Government would never give that advice to teachers. That is a bit incongruent isn’t it?

    Did Steve Ryan hang up denying the kit existed and the government are lying? Is that it?

    What??? – I don’t even understand that previous sentence then to add the next!!! … Red! lol … seeing red is a reality “confused” with who is in denial and who isn’t!.

    “Mental health is a serious issue,” Mr Ryan said. ((Everything is mental – that is why everything “else” is manifested!))

    Mental illness group Mind Frame said about 14 per cent of children between four and 17 suffered from mental problems.

    (I wonder? do those children that “require” assisted learning …. are they in this bracket? or are behaviour problems adequately served as a disorder? – how is mental health defined for government funding for kids at school?”) … and then; what about the other percent that are just brushed off as “oh! a naughty kid?” – who become the kid that tries to commit suicide? Or becomes a drug user? … maybe Mum or Dad has the mental illness and the child has no idea what is going on – does anyone ever consider that aspect? Or is it easier to tell the kids to “toughen” up because the adult had too? That is ancient thinking if I ever heard it!

    Teachers could teach better if they were not so stressed themselves. Teachers could learn other courses that could see an interaction of diversification and really help themselves in order to help the future – the children. Take the pressure off the teachers for goodness sake; that is a mental health issue in itself.

    The world observes a financial depression; isn’t what goes on in the mind because of that? hello … wise up and ease up on the children and let the adults become more responsible and less accountable for just a “job’ paying a salary. Let them make a real difference in society. Empower them with the skills to re-build tomorrow for the children.

    Good luck with the “secret” – if society keeps on like this the fortune will be a big noise for them; all the time. Evolution is amazing karma – the calmer the adults are the calmer the children are. Hopefully my comment will be published (in colour) because I was the child who cringed everytime something coloured Red was near me. Yes! comment … I was going to comment at the Courier Mail – but! I had too much to comment for the “capacity of the pre-formatted field” – i.e: not enuf room.

    Oh! And as for Red pen marking? It’s only a suggestion for consideration.  Inside out is the indication of what the matter is all about.  If a heart is damaged by no love then the colour Red is a very confronting colour.

    Lets hope they see you Pink as White because having seen Red all over is a blend of who you are today.
