Session #30

  Summer is over and as autumn begins this most delicious time of year, the images of freedom bounce through my melon. This summer I walked past various places, people and memories that evoked the past. That same past that restrained me from being the true Seumas ( or James back then), always lying to … More Session #30

Session #29

As this fiftieth summer of my life rolls on towards it’s end, so many past events as a JW crop up. Earlier this month as I walked past the Memorial Coliseum in Portland on my way to a photo shoot, I witnessed an event I used to take part in yearly during the summer months, … More Session #29

Session #28

When I look at the date of the last post here, I just about die. Seriously? Does this mean nothing worthy of a post has happened or…? Not at all. Just now getting thoughts together for a post! And lately it has been regarding my own spirituality as well as what role my body plays … More Session #28

Session #27

  As the anniversary of my father’s death approaches next month and my mother deals with her own health issues, I find it even more necessary to live in the moment and not predict or live in the future, nor even the past. Not that it brings heartache nor depression, not even sad melancholy. Just … More Session #27

No, it has not been all the most glorious nor perfect existence, but in comparison to other folks…it … More Session #25: Walls

Session #24

It has been more than two months since my last visit! Busy, busy, busy! And just when I thought to myself that I might not need this blog any longer, something pops up to make me step back and rethink that. What was it this time, you ask? How about the final month of this … More Session #24

Session #23

Summer has been moving along at breakneck pace! Life has been very good and my therapy sessions here almost forgotten! There have been a few rain clouds now and then passing over head internally but to be truthful….nothing that caused any major anguish  or ill feelings. Do I really need to search my soul and … More Session #23

Session #21

We are taught so many things as we grow up, some of which stay with us because they are logical and positive, working well within our mainframe of life. Some philosophies, beliefs and teachings simply change as we age and think in a different way, asking questions and learning,studying all the angles possible. This has … More Session #21
