Morning resistance breaker in Waitsburg

Updated: Nov 13


VIDEO TRANSCRIPT https://share.descript.com/view/Ldbt28CaPRp


Embrace imperfection practice, deliberate imperfection, even.


And I'm doing some of that right now, even just in the way this recording is being done, because I don't even have a good microphone to use. I kept trying to use one and the audio volume dropped so much that the quality decreases because it's trying to overcompensate for light lack of vocal, resounding vibrations. So I'm just saying there's a lot background noise and it kind of sucks. So I'm not doing that, I'm just using my laptop's normal microphone and I'm holding onto my web camera. Not because I don't have a place for it, but I think it's more interesting maybe. And then I don't have to worry about the focus and the light balance and it can move around and still have one hand to gesture and, and whatnot. So it's okay.


I just wanted to make a video. I just wanted to make a video and I've been kind of trying to the past couple of days, but I haven't because there's like, something's not right with my audio. And I haven't been willing to just simply take the headset off, take the mic, the crappy mic. I do have away and just record despite gaps and yeah.


Lackluster outcome of my audio and just make a video and just go just, okay. I just want to talk I just want to share. I just want to show up in this way, have it be recorded so I can just put it out into the world. Number one, that's just a, an offer to anybody to my. My future self future family, future partners, friends acquaintances loved ones.


And it's also just me knowing that I'm showing up in this type of space in such a way that the context of my communication is inherently directed toward another soul and another heart. Another body, another breath. Another ear lobe or two, or multiply that usually by two, but not always by two. So, grounding, a little bit. It is about mid morning. I think it's about 10:30, 10:26. According to this specific clock. The time barometer and I'm over here in Waitsburg and my parents' house. No, I don't have this fancy of a home background for myself.


Sometimes I have a nice fancy background and I'm here at least until tomorrow, today being Saturday tomorrow, being Sunday, stayed here last night.


My parents are over in Idaho visiting their cabin. They're going to the harmonica festival in Yellowpine, Idaho. I think they're checking on the new house. They bought out there with property, a little bit of property and they're doing their thing. So they need their horses watched. I'm watching their horses.


Five of them beauties out here. And I think there are three geldings and two mares, but I'm not sure if TIG is a mare so I'd have to check their underside to know that. Three cats in the house. One of them Dolly's walking underneath the table right now, and it's just a wonderful time to be here. Yeah, I'm happy to retreat a little more into myself than into any specific destination or gathering of people or anything other than just what is in.


And what's experiencing right now, what's being experienced and doing the experiencing. So yeah, that's kind of where things are. I'm going to finish my coffee end this recording session here in a bit. And I think transition right into some, some working out, probably just running today. Some stretching movements just tuning into my body, some nice, very.


Mm. sedative music or oceanic music. And I don't mean by the oceanic region and like their top charts or anything like that, but the music of the ocean, perhaps. And yeah I'm spending some time to rest and step into myself and how I want to respond to a particularly both exciting, but also vast and important invitation.


And which comes with of course, commitment in various forms and formats, forms and formats, I think is almost saying the same thing. That's okay. There's flavors and formats.


Even this, like holding my camera, it feels like a, kind of a more fun format then my typical flavors, Hey, get some exercise. Take a fucking bath because my parents have an amazing bath tub. They have amazing stuff generally which they've worked hard to acquire and that's what they like.


So that's what you like. Hey that's a whole other conversation.


I'm not getting paid to watch any animals, but I'm taking a bath, having some of their coffee and I've used their kitchen a bit and I did do a little laundry here. So it's some reciprocity it's part of the sacred economy. It doesn't always have to be monetary or commodities of services and goods.


I am probably gonna sign off here. And I'm proud that I've done this video for myself, because it's just been, you know, breaking through that resistance of making things perfect or up to standards or whatever my standards are not to say that that isn't valuable planning and execution, but when it's an impediment to flow and throughput and opening and unleashing then yeah.


it is kind of a problem. So. better to just get on with the show. Okay. Anyways, I'm happy to do this post today. Happy that it's out in the world after I post it and yeah. So happy to settle and maybe step away from the words and the language for a bit to refamiliarize and remember into sensation into intuition.


Emotion and oneness.


The dry bottom of the Coppei Creek in Waitsburg, WA that borders the property of my parents' house just outside the city limits. It's been dry awhile now and later in the evening I saw a couple teenagers walking away from the underside of the bridge at the bottom of the frame
