Might as well face it I'm addicted to blogs

You may not have guessed, but I'm addicted to blogs.
I think they're awesome, In fact if I had more time I would write more often
(yes that's why you might not have guess how I feel).
Nevertheless I have come to the conclusion that I need one more blog.
I haven't decided how it will be run yet,
but I have decided that a blog is the perfect place to share some of the story, and details of my engagement.
(unfortunately I don't yet have admin privileges).
I'm not planning to post the same things here,
but if public opinion has, well, a different opinion then I will consider some level of redundancy.

the New Blog is called
after the traditional naming canon in our family.

(in case you were wondering my other blogs are The Utah Food Review
and a brief look at the candidates for the 2008 United States Presidential election.
(not fully ready yet. but will contain Brief bios, points from platforms and candidate views and where each stands on up to about ten issues (same issues for all candidates)
That can be found at

(still needs a lot of work!)

thanks for everything

P.S. GNAW is on Hiatus until further notice,
(but if you want to come just let us know and we will definitely have one Ü )

P.P.S we may also start some MNAW... we'll see.

Thinking with the front of your mind

It seems to me that a lot of people
are doing a lot of thinking.

Everything we do starts with a thought
but sometimes we are not aware of the thoughts
that lead us to our actions.

I think that in the back of our minds we are thinking about something,
but quite often if someone asked us why we did it,
we might not fully know.

The trick is to bring our thoughts from the back of our mind to the front.

I think this can be good for the people around us
as well as ourselves.

but it's not easy.

Probably we have been conditioned to separate our thoughts from our identity.
that way people don't have access to our true persona.

That way we are a lot less vulnerable.
We are safe and protected.

Actually we are not all that safe,
but it feels safer.

It's that whole thing where we have problems,
but they are familiar, so they are more comfortable.

We choose to keep out of the front of our minds,
somehow we have made that an alien territory

It's almost like it scares us, or at least that we're not quite comfortable there.
But as with most places,
the more time we spend there, the more we come to like it,

It just makes more sense,
and ironically, so do we,
we have more power.
more power within,

and more power to affect our environment
and our world

And so I guess I make a proposition
that we think with the front of our heads ,

After all,
we are already seeing there, and smelling there, and tasting there.
(in a basic (1st grade) kind of way)
