    2020: A Year in Review lucid

    2020: A Year in Review

    (Dec 31, 2020) 2020 is a hallmark year for global destabilization brought about by the Covid 19 pandemic. Trump lost the election to Joe Biden, but he wouldn't leave office. The killing of George Floyd ignited what has now become the Black Lives Matter movement, sparking global social unrest. China geared-up its global expansion going against all flags. How did all this affect me?....more »»

    Reversing/Slowing Down the Aging Process

    (Dec 30, 2020) Aging is seen as a process that inevitably leads to degradation of life which ultimately leads to death. New science argues that that is not necessarily the case. The aging process can be slowed down. You can be 60 years old and have an energetic age much younger than people half your age. Or, you can be 30 and be biologically 60 years old.....more »»

    Hike to Huay Keaw Waterfall

    (Dec 20, 2020) Having stayed here in Chiang Mai for over 2 years now, and I didn't even know there was a waterfall within city limits. When James organized this hike, I got excited.....more »»

    Yoga Mat

    (Dec 19, 2020) In an attempt to assuage a jealous boyfriend from having other thoughts about where his girlfriend was, I gave him a full play=by-play conveying full transparency of what happened. His reply was unexpected.....more »»

    Hiking to Wat Pha Lat along the Monk's Trail

    (Dec 19, 2020) With the start of the burning season in Chiang Mai and the unpredictability of my visa situation, joining Nicola's hike crew had a sense of urgency to it. But of course, it's all about being with wonderful people I'd like to spend time with - yoga people but hanging out outside the mat.....more »»

    Movie Review: Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)

    (Dec 18, 2020) Circa 1984, Wonder Woman, while working for the Smithsonian, encounters an ancient stone that grants wishes. The stone falls into the hands of a megalomaniac who was bound to destroy known civilization. Wonder Woman is the only one who can stop him, but at a very high cost that left her torn.....more »»

    Are You Psycho? lucid

    Are You Psycho?

    (Dec 9, 2020) All the psychos I've come across with don't know they are psychos and even go about describing other people are psychos. This left me thinking, what assurance do I have I'm not?....more »»

    Muffin Man

    (Dec 8, 2020) We were a gathering of 8 old and new friends at a music bar. Muffin Man rises up his chair and gives everybody a piece of his muffin - everybody except me. Hmmm. How to deal with this brush-off in a way that gets my point across but not create discord?....more »»

    Polyamory lucid

    Polyamory

    (Dec 4, 2020) Polyamory - consensual, ethical, and responsible non-monogamy. Definitely counter-instinctive and an intellectual construct with logic as its building block. While discreetly practiced under wraps, it's far from mainstream. Perhaps viable over the short term, but questionable over the long term. Even with moderate success, it seems to hang precariously on slippery slope. In my yoga parlance, it's like doing a Tree Pose. How long can you manage it before you lose balance?....more »»

    The Wim Hof Ice Bath

    (Dec 3, 2020) I'd been doing the Wim Hof breathing method with remarkable results. Part of that method is to immerse in a ice bath. When I learned of an ice bath here in Chiang Mai, I didn't waste time in signing-up. How long can I sustain it?....more »»
