Loose gizzards on the deck

The Coach's Notes #42

(image: out wandering the fields surrounding Southam).

It’s been a rocking good week so far! Hope you can say the same, if not, give me a call, maybe I can help you turn it around.

I woke up this morning with a few less aches and pains. This ‘ole body of mine has definitely been put through its paces. I am reminded of how intertwined the mind, body and soul are. What you do to one affects the other two in equal measures. As I slowly regain control of my body, I can feel my mental power increasing. And with increased mental power my soul begins to sing to the infinite beauty around me.

Everything touches everything else (alchemical principle #6).


Here are 10 things I thought were worth sharing with you this week:

  1. As it is Independence Day in the States, I’ll lead with this: Ten ways of looking at the American flag, from around the globe.

  2. No One Called the United States “America” Until It Became an Empire

  3. I drank coffee and looked out into the brilliant first morning of the year. Kafka in Amerika

  4. I got into a deep conversation today with someone about the education system and the need for reform. We a new educational model that reflects the way the world works now. Why a great education means engaging with controversy

  5. Why bugs deserve of respect.

  6. Have a very Nicolas Cage 4th of July.

  7. I love poster. And reading about the history of posters has made want make more posters and do some non-destructive street art.

  8. “The way to one’s own heaven,” wrote Nietzsche, “always leads through the voluptuousness of one’s own hell.” Could happiness exist without hell?

  9. Those unexpected moments when we see who we really are.

  10. Will the sharing economy end capitalism as we know it?

Ok Good people. If you scanned down this far, thanks for reading. I hope you find one or two of the links useful or inspiring.
