This blog updates at least weekly on any of the days below with the topics as follows:
On a Monday-Maniac Mondays = All Things that are All Things! Generally thoughts, ideas or tools we think can be useful to the personal or professional life.
On a Thursday-Tumultuous Thursdays = All Things Metaphysical
On a Friday-Funtastic Fridays = All Things Fun! (cartoons, stories about the Purple Elephant and the Little mouse...)

Maniac Mondays: Finding that Elusive Happy Place!

There's this scene in the movie 'Quiz' where the lead goes home to his parents' house and although the scene is filled with so many different meanings...the relationship between a son and a father...the lead not being able to tell his dad that he was cheating on the show...etc...etc...what always remains with me from this scene is when the lead says at about 3:08 mins into the clip below:

"You know what I just had the strongest memory...coming home from school...going to the cold bottle of milk...a big piece of chocolate's just the simplicity of it...I can't think of anything that'll make me that happy again!"

And doesn't it make you wonder where is your happy place? And doesn't it really seem to become elusive after a fact in today's busy, changing world I think we don't even know where our happy place is anymore! We can't even recall it as the lead in 'Quiz' did...of course it took him to be in a spot and in a point of deep brooding reflection to recall it but...can we...ever recall our happy place? And is it elusive or can we find it and capture it again?

In my opinion it is change is inevitable...if we were to find the same happy place again it won't be the same and hence is why I say it is elusive...but don't get me wrong I'm not saying happy places aren't necessary or aren't fun or don't make us who we are right now...and for sure I'm not saying it isn't fun to recall our own happy places! :) So I dare you! Go your own happy places...the one from your childhood and the ones in your 'nowhood' and even dare to project and visualize the happy places and spaces you want to see in your life in the future...and I dare you they will become reality! In fact when they happen you will feel a sense of deja vu because you would have already been there in your mind you see...

Believe me?

Even if you don't let's just have some fun and think about all our happy places! :)

Hmmm...let me see if I can find some of mines....

-Saturday morning cartoons!
-Watching the 'A-team' while having a big plate of macaroni and cheese with baked beans...didn't have to worry about carbs or calories then!:)
-Watching Mission Impossible re-runs on a Sunday afternoon while eating curried pigeon peas and rice. (you can perhaps tell I grew up vegetarian)
-Playing in large sand heaps!
-The first time I laid eyes on my pet German Shepherd...perhaps that's the son phenomenon mentioned here on the 'Quiz' movie clip since I'm not a parent myself.

Hmmm...seems most of them relate to 'comfort food', childhood or childhood games and TV and then there a link?

Now please share some of yours with me!

Until end of June folks keep being the change you wish to see in this world! :)

Soulful Sundays: Apologies and a Post to Go!

We've come in the company of the Purple Elephant and Little Mouse to let you know that we're sorry, sorry and more sorry for not blogging for weeks and weeks...not a single Maniac Mondays or Tumultuous Tuesdays, Funtastic Fridays or even Slumbering Saturdays blog have we posted...and not a single word of prayer was said on our sister blog UCP-Universal Collective now here's the thing...

We've been caught up in the Hustings here on the islands of...Trinidad and Tobago...the place of our birth and see we've been working for something we believe in here...CHANGE! So we've been rallying changemakers across the land to vote for got caught up in see we believe that the party that has evolved the People's Partnership echoes some of the things we talk about on these here blogs...or at least they represent hope for it in the land where the ruling party does not show a window for it and even the manifesto that the ruling party has put forward shows they have no interest in change but in just going full steam ahead as is! So we hope for...

-sustainable development
-unity in diversity

And we here at Meady's Musings Production are always about being the change you want to see! So it was easy for Meady's Musings Production to want to blog for them as they to us represent the change we want to be and see!

We don't know what the outcome will be at the general elections tomorrow on Mon 24 May 2010 but we wish for it to be free, fair and peaceful and of course we hope that change will win! :)However no matter who wins the elections on the islands tomorrow Meady's Musings Production will be willing to work with them as a citizen interested in being the change they wish to see in their homes, their community , the islands, the region, the world and quite frankly the Universe and beyond! :) Purple Elephant and Little Mouse always at our side! :)

However right after the election results we will be heading off on vacation to China via London and so we felt it necessary to drop in and apologise and leave you with a farewell Maniac Mondays post we were preparing before we got drawn into the hustings. We also wish to let you know that we will be back around the end of June and our normal Monday, Thursday and Friday installations will return more frequently then. On UCP we will be starting something called the 'God' series where we will be discussing different perceptions of God in various religions, minds and hearts! Of course we will be sure when back from China to share notes on our adventures there both from the Meady's Musings point of view and UCP as we plan to visit the world fair on in Shanghai and some Buddhist temples while there! And for fans of animal muses like us we more than likely will be dropping in on Winnie the Pooh land while in the UK. So look for it!:)

And look for the Maniac Mondays posting tomorrow on Meady's Musings it's about finding 'That Elusive Happy Place' and see you at the end of June! Until then keep being the change you wish to see!:) And if you want you can always ask our Purple Elephant and the Little Mouse to help you know they are always willing!:)
