On Contests

I can’t read music. Instead, I’d do stuff inside the piano, do harmonics and all kinds of crazy things. They used to put me in these annual piano contests down at Long Beach City College, and two years in a row, I won first prize – out of like 5,000 kids! The judges were like, ‘Very interesting interpretation!’ I thought I was playing it right. ~Eddie Van Halen

Yeah, I’m kinda like THAT guy, I always have been. Give me a perfectly good coloring book and I can’t wait to draw OUTSIDE the lines. But for those of you who are a competitive sort, [Leezu!] is having a contest I think you may be interested in. Sorry for the late notice, I just learned of it yesterday, but with the prize including 10,000L’s I thought I should pass this on to all you creative sorts out there. Yeah, don’t mind me, I didn’t even read the instructions, “take a snapshot at the special photo booth placed in the store for your convenience” but then what do you expect from a Cao anyway? Deadline is April 19th, so you better get moving on this one! Besides, they give you a gorgeous swimsuit just for participating, see? Everyone’s a winner!

Pick and Roll

If you know me, you know I am a little batty when it comes to my Gators (University of Florida) sports teams. Don’t blame me, blame my parents. I was born there at the colleges hospital when my da was in medical school and have gone to all the football games and watched a lot of basketball games as well. Don’t be hater’s you other collegiate fans, I am a product of my environment. But with that said, I have to go meet up with the posse because we are going to a birthday party at a friends house. We are going to drink a few drinks (we have a designated driver) and watch the gators play Tennessee in basketball. I’d like to say I’m going to play that Cornhole game, but they all stand in line NOT to have me play on their team.

I can’t say I blame them, heck, I reckon I don’t really even want me on my team either. Last time I threw the bag past the hole, over 3 men more than 6 feet tall and square into the swimming pool. But dang, where’s the loyalty? It’s okay, let ‘em be that way, because what I lack in skill I more than make up for in laugh factor. Besides, I’d rather be watching the basketball game anyway.

The take from? I’m gonna pick up something cold to drink and roll on out of here, but I wanted to wish you all a wonderful weekend surrounded by all the people you love the best. Have fun!

The Poignant Longing for Beauty

I oft wonder the sensibilities of a virtual lover and why one would choose to partake and another would not. Perhaps it is the isolation and loneliness that inhabits us with the nomadically spreading of the world. Typically in generations past families didn’t sprawl quite so far from one another, and here I have a sister in Kentucky, one in Wyoming and a brother in Florida, but certainly not in the same city where I reside. I wonder if this longing for virtual flesh is actually a searching for home. All creatures are drawn to beauty, the only difference the individuals definition of what is beauty. I saw a picture today and it set within me a longing with a keenness and poignant passion, a kind of breathless awe even, which suggested that beneath the longing to possess and be possessed by beauty there lies a longing to be known by another fully and humanly. Something of it struck some deeply hidden chord within my soul, making me yearn for, what? I’m not sure. But I do have to wonder perhaps the crux of this need for possession is the need to no longer travel and search, to find the place at last, where I fully belong. A home.

If home is a place where we fully know and are fully known and understood; where we find peace, rest, acceptance, where all seems right, how come the most we can expect from it is something fleeting and transitory? Because though it give us our happiest moments on Earth, at other segments the loved ones depart to manage their business or private affairs, care for other loved ones, another bill comes due, our budgets needs readjusting, unexpected expenses arise, or we lose our employment. So then, in a virtual affair, isn’t it plausible that much of its ethereal success is it seldom becomes mired in the day to day mundane complications of employee attrition, budgets and any of the multitudes of routine inconveniences which naturally befall someone during a life time?

Take from? For the first time in a long time, no I don’t think I have one. While I was watching the world today I saw a picture, a beautiful picture, it sent my senses careening, nudging some deeply hidden memory within me, so I stopped to think. In the thoughtfulness I realized, the emotions that arise when I can’t hang on to scattered moments of beauty forever could only be described as… homesickness.


Old Soul

Old SoulJacket: Sonatta Morales, *8*, Goldrose . Necklace: Mandala, Pearl Rain . Earrings: Mandala, Pine Cone .

I’ve often been told I have a very “old soul.” I didn’t think really hard about it, but by the time the third or fourth person made the comment I began to wonder why. I’m not truly sure still, but I reckon it’s due to a couple of factors. I have always been bookish, even in very young childhood but I am more so now, if possible. So I’ve learned a bit about human nature, nurture, and an insane amount of minute facts that tend to have no reward but to clutter my brain (or make me quite clever at the show Jeopardy). As an introvert, I spend a great deal of time watching and thinking, preferring this past time to actually speaking to people. Don’t get me wrong, I love, I absolutely adore, people. We are all so colorful, beautiful, smart, silly, cagey, grouchy, happy, sad, under-educated, over educated, homebody, busybody, well-travelled and not so much and so many other techno-colors of uniqueness. I adore you all because under this unique exterior we all share so many qualities; kindness, anger, meanness, hope, no hope, most of all the urge to be loved. But when it comes to life, I prefer my place sitting on the bench watching and listening to interactions to being the center of activity. Having lived my entire life with this quietness seems to give a person a predisposition to listening to the little voice within, the visceral intuition we are all born with, but some choose to ignore. So perhaps these are the qualities of an “old soul.” If not, I’d love to hear what you think.

But it’s so late, the day has past me by somehow. So the take from? Yeah, it’s time. Wouldn’t the world be such a wonderful place if we all realized that under it all, we are all the same? We want food, shelter, clothing, well I do anyway, mama buy me some Jimmy Choos! We breathe air, bleed when cut, have hopes and dreams, some of which are stomped on and shattered by others. We stress, get tired and sick and dimes to donuts we’ve probably all loved and lost someone because no one is an island. No one is invincible, we all have moments to stand tall, usually cross referenced by the moments that we fall. But we are all here, why not embrace the good of those around you and forgive them their “bad?” Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we all learned people isn’t singular, it’s plural. And that guy next to you that you don’t like very much? Well he’s people too.
