WHAT IS THIS?

Daily, snackable writings and podcasts to spur changes in thinking.

A blueprint for building a better brain by slow, consistent, daily drops of influence.

The way we think is both our greatest tool - indeed our only tool - and very often it is also our biggest leash. We are only who we think we are. Our opportunities are also limited by who other people think we are. It stands to reason that if we’d like to change who we are, we must start with an effort to change our thinking. Read more here

TINKERED DRINKING

May 21st, 2019

 

Today on tinkered thinking, we have been drinking

 

and wandering on down with a mind that is shrinking.

 

As the cup fills,

 

we take more swills,

 

to ensure there is more room to pour.

 

But what for?

 

 

A full house has all it’s cards spoken for

 

so no one else need come through the door.

 

But what if we need space for just one more?

 

A story, an idea, advice filled with lore?

 

A crammed cranium, oozing at the ears

 

is bound to be riddled, clogged, and stuck up with fears.

 

 

Metaphors like draino, light poisons to shine our mental veneer,

 

to clear out the clogs and give our minds space to hear,

 

some new concept, a realization to ring true and clear.

 

 

Guzzle and swig in the name of the unknown,

 

to toast to old ashen ideas, now withered to bone.

 

 

Make way for the new

 

it comes in any hue. . .

 

 

Choose your trend,

 

to ride round the next bend,

 

 

Neverminding myopia,

 

our plans are bound for utopia!

 

 

And of all the blathering big babies you might turn an ear

 

Nevermind the babbling voice on the phone, in your pocket, so near.

 

 

There’s no telling what dear darlings in your mind such voice might flush clear,

 

So be a dear and steer clear, not a sheep, black, white, purple, but still loaded with fear.

 

 

 

For it’s me fair friend that preservers to dare,

 

with perfuse, diffuse, distributed feelings of care,

 

for you fellow stranger, traveler rough and rare.

 

 

 

I’ll sing till my tongue grows silver and sharp

 

waging war with a rhetorical harp,

 

so that when you dear friend

 

have a thirst to mend,

 

 

and again you wander on down to the watering hole

 

I’ll have waiting for you every day a full bowl

 

To drink with ears and eyes

 

from my web of words that tries

 

 

to teach you

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to tinker your drinking

 

so you’ll never drink without thinking

 

some kool-aide from a scheming spin-king.

 

 

So gather round thinkers and listen
