Thinking Inside the Box, Launching Into Space

As the saying goes;

Thinking Outside The Box…

Seeing that Many-An-Idea which had been construed inside THAT box,

Before the Saying was Coined –

“Thinking Outside The Box”

Were good enough, BUT as times goes by, Life changes and with Progress running it’s Ass off in Leaving us behind;

Something New had to come…


Thinking Outside The Box!

Yet, this idea is ONLY used when Everyone else who created Good Enough Ideas INSIDE that Box are doing a better job than the rest…


What about living Life in Safety or even a life within that BOX!

Life itself is taking chances and living beyond the Means we’d been given,

No one was Ever Born to live a Life in fear OR that Damn box,

Which would Tell you what you Can or Shouldn’t even Venture to Try!

There’s SO MUCH which want to Stop you, me AND everyone,

Reaching Your life’s Potential,

So just why Should you Listen to the Limitations of those who are TOO scared

Taking that Chance at Living the way they Should?

Inside the Box,

Outside that Box –

It really doesn’t Matter,

The Real Question that needs be Asked,

Which is the way that WORKS the Best for You?

As EVERYONE who’d been Following my Thoughts and Ideas would Attest to…

AS long as you Don’t Influence someone NEGATIVE in the way you live,

It really Doesn’t Matter if you Live inside OR outside that Box!

As Long As You Live The Very Best Life You Can Live For Yourself AND

Helping Where You Can, For Those Around You!

It WILL happen that We’ve got Great Ideas,

No one Might help US in getting Further with that.

We MIGHT even live;




Common lives…

Which In itself isn’t as Horrendous as the Experts Might tell US –

If you do the Best with what You’ve got and Love those Around You,

Living the life you can,

Enjoying what You’ve got,

Then this Standard kind of Life is even BETTER,

Than not Living anything in the least bit!

The Treasure isn’t that which you’ve got to Chase down,

It’s that which is Willing to Wait for you,

It’s that which is Waking up next to you,

It’s that which is Happy to see you,

It’s that which is Sharing your Life with you,

Inside or Outside the BOX…

Ideas and Life,

Just do the Best you can for YOU and those Around You,

Murphy will Always come Along and Try BITE you in the Rear,

Doing what You can,

That’ll be the Awesome Idea,

Especially when You BEAT-down that Adversity in Your Own Life.

As well, ENJOY the moments you’ve got with those Around you;

What Could Be Better Than WORRYING About The DAMN Box,

No one really cares about in any case?

Between a ROCK and a HARD place…

Lets Party

It’s been a few times, places where I worked and where I partook in the Year End function.

Whenever the Employees Expect or Suspect there should be such a thing as a Function at the End of the Year – You kind of have a potential issue coming your way…

Not only this idea of having such,

But then there’s something else which you’d have to worry about OR which can rear its Ugly Head within this situation as well.

The Powers that Be will want to throw this Party or Function to show the Employee their gratitude with the Year’s work,

But at ONE of the companies I’d been working,

Not that long –

This time and Function at the Year’s End always led to massive issues;

THUS, each Year the Location of this Function was changed to a new place,

Seeing there were Troubles and Issues at the previous place,

The Venue Operators made sure that Management KNEW they weren’t welcome again!

ONE company I was with,

THE Grinch in charge of the Company was such a Stingy Ass that I cannot even remember that they’d have something for the People working for them…

BUT then,

As with Many a times when You hear about this Year End Function OR a Christmas Party as it’s been changed to,

If You’re in Management,

Just how much to you partake in this and WHERE do you draw the line?

With the use of Alcohol in Various of these Parties OR Functions,

There’s ALWAYS the issue of the ONE, TWO or more of the Employees,

How goes well beyond what they Normally go or DO…

But then,

When you’re in charge of these Function,

Just how WILD as I can put it,

Should you get or NOT AT ALL,

When the rest of the Employees Dances on the Tables,

Two at a time find a Secret, Safe place where they get to know each other better,


Where they go SO Crazy that the Company isn’t Accepted back the Next Year…

In the Past I’ve heard Everything most of the Rest had heard from the Places where they might have worked,

BUT then,

The simple TRUTH of the Matter is this,

When the Alcohol is Talking and You do not have the Resistance,

Not to Indulge in Your Wildest Fantasies,

That is the Moment you Throw away all the Respect You’ve built over time.

It’s better to LOOK at what they’re doing,

Just Checking they do not Burn the place down…

Keeping WELL clear of making an ASS of yourself,

That may be the best “High Road” to travel,

Seeing that at the End of the Day,

ANYONE’s Stupid Actions could Lead to their Dismissal!

If you’re NOT really comfortable with what the Rest are doing,

No matter what they May get Up to,

Rather keep Your Cool,

Dealing as best You can,

While t

Technologically Savvy…


I very recently bought myself a new Laptop. I was running around almost a Month in advance, while I was researching what was out there.

I found that not only could I get a Second-hand Laptop from Cash Crusaders, but then found there was a Cash Converters also quit close to me.

The NICE thing about them was, no matter which Second-hand Laptop I’d buy – it would still be running Windows 7.

I do have a MASSIVE issue when buying anything of Value, spending any considerable amount of Money – not taking something NEW and NOT having that Warranty that comes with the new Item…

Ironically with this, while I was doing some Backing Up work on my older PC;

I found that the Writer wasn’t functioning correctly all the time anymore.

THUS, I was forced to use the Laptop’s Writer

AND can you imagine that there’s a Warranty on this system!

Still, I still work on Windows 7 on my PC and now, work on Windows 8.1 on my Laptop.

I have taking some time and learned what I have to know about the Operating system…

YET, even though SOME may say that it’s Easier than Windows 7 –

If those Users were to look for the Various things within the System,

Their location isn’t as easy to access no matter what you do!

YES and Yes,

I suspect the TILES and such can be Modified in doing a better Job for me to Access the program or even Accomplish what I want to do;

But then that wouldn’t be Pertinent to the Way the System is running.

I cannot even Begin to wonder what the Real change would be,

Between Windows 8 and 8.1 –

Hence, this makes me think of Cars as well.

The Manufacturers brings out a Specific car.

They see that it MAY sell well and do not allow ANYONE to tweak the final Product.

While they still see what the Market is doing,

The PEOPLE who does the Tweaking,

They get the time in doing even more of it.

Giving them more and more time in getting to the Point where they could submit all their Ideas and Findings,

TO the POWERS that BE!

In this regard we have a possible,

Facelift version of a Car which may sell pretty well.

There could Always have been such an idea,

NONE of us would Ever know if this is true or not.

The idea is to sell more of the Product and keep it in the People’s eyes, Mind and Mostly

their Hearts!

With this comes a new Thought as well,

I opened a Mail which Invited me to WIN a new Samsung S6 and it’s Brother,

Samsung S6 Edge (if I can remember correctly)…

With the Latest i-Phone 6 release,

I can see that Samsung is really Taking the Battle of the Phones to Apple.

But then, like the updated version between Windows 8 AND 8.1,

The idea of a Facelift version of a Car which is selling well AND now,

The latest Release of the Samsung S6 – which is following closely on the S5,

Are just one of the things which MOST companies do in generating VOLUMES of Sales and

Generate Potential Clients…

With the Windows Operating System I still cannot ARGUE that it’s Easier to use than I’d now use a Apple Laptop or PC.

Having Struggled with an i-Pad,

But not having other Apple Components to work with it…

There’s not ALWAYS such a big change or DIFFERENCE in the Products.

Yet, while we SPEND it’s okay for the Companies to bring out MORE technology or at SUCH a steady pace,

Who could keep up with Everything happening around You?

I just wonder, when it Happened that Technology didn’t HELP us so much,

BUT because of the Ideas behind the Technology,

It turned on the rest and Became part of the Problem –

SEEING you JUST needed TO have THAT item…

Where-to would this kind of Mind-set, Sped-up life be taking us?

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

The Reality of Manipulation

We can see this kind of things so many times over within the broad spectrum of the World of Celebrity – it happens regularly and unfortunately constantly as well.

The Irony here is this, we either have seen in our daily lives that someone endured this OR you have been the victim of this yourself.
You’d wonder what I might be talking about,
But then it’s so Easy it’s not even funny!

When you or your friend sees a Dress or more Regularly that Boy who might even like you.
Even between boys this is the issue,
There’s a Girl…

You, I, They’ve got first dibs AND
Then, it turns out that Whoever it was – ONLY saw you as a Friend.
Thus People get upset when they Might not, Don’t Want to see the Signs.
Not investing as much Energy into something that doesn’t even Exist…

Not to mention when Your Friends or close acquaintances do not think that You should be free to make your own choice…
It’s so IRONIC,
There May be someone willing to tell you what they believe you should do,
BUT They want the Freedom to do what they will!
You’re NOT allowed to Caution them against the Mistake you believe for them to be making…
Still, You’re supposed to Listen to THOSE who believe themselves to know better!

THEN comes the Worst one of them all.
When Your OWN Family want you to be Happy,
But they Totally and Utterly refuse to accept the Person or Terms or Choices You’ve made in securing Your OWN happiness.
No matter what direction you go in,
No matter what you do,
We all have the need to be Loved and Accepted in this regard.

This will not have happened; when THOSE around you believe they know BEST,
Which is sometimes the Furthest from the Truth! ! ! ! !
There are those days that they’ve seen something You’ve not.
But then, STILL it’s your right to make that Mistake AND for no one around Us to make any Choices for you.
How will anyone Learn what looks Good and What Not;
IF most of us do not get that Opportunity to make those Mistakes.

At the end of the day,
Even if “THEY” know you best,
You, Me, We All still have the Right to make-up or Minds and even THEN making the Mistake in giving the Wrong person the Chance…

That being Your Life to do such things.
THE best the Rest can do,
Support that One person,
Seeing that No One has that Right to Manipulate you OR the Situation so that You HAVE to change your Plans and Live,

To accommodate someone Else…


Trust Your Instincts

I know that Most of the time, Women in General are credited with having a better Intuition or Instincts about LIFE and things heading their way.

This may be true, as women in General also Mature faster than men do.

That said, they tend to arrive at Uncomfortable as well as Nice situations LONG before most Men do at their Age…

THUS, I do not dispute that the Intuition or Instincts are correct being said of Women,

BUT also, some Men may not care to Feel or Know something to come either.

It is there for My Believe that some Men,

If they were to trust their Knowledge, Instincts or even Intuition;

They may also see, know or wonder of things which may Transpire.

People in General are Afraid of what they do not Understand.

It’s not only Uncertainty, Fear, but it leaves us NOT to go Look for that trouble.

It keeps us Safe at times and those who do not care for this,

They Could land-up in a Difficult Position or even Worse than that.

STILL, here’s the Question,

When last did you listen to that Inner Voice, which did TRY and help you on the Right path.

How often does this happen that you can Listen to it AND

Find that it’s not Deferring you toward a Wrong Course,

Helping out more than You suspected?

If you do have this Luck OR

Burdon, when you’ve got to Speak to others as you Feel something about them;

Do you Actually Tell them or Just caution someone on Anything which might go Astray.

Are you MORE worried for them to Ask you how you could KNOW?

Do you Rather not even Mention something,

Even though you Know it can help that Person and YOU,

But your Fear of the Unknown doesn’t Allow you to Reach that Far in changing What could or May happen down the Road?

With Any kind of Knowledge and Wisdom,

There’s that Inert Responsibility to share it


At the most, help those which do not have it, Making the Best of choices they can.

Not listening to you, That’s a really BIG possibility,

Not to say they would or take you Seriously.

If YOU don’t even listen to that Inner-voice,

Why would they believe you If and When you try helping out…

The ONLY other question is this, do you Hear, Feel or Know there’s something not good or strange coming-

And what do you do about it.

For Yourself even, as this May not happen Regularly,

Would you Even do a thing about it, if that was, You did Feel something in your Bones?


The ABC’s

The ABC's

Learning your ABC’s is actually a Phrase Kinda made famous from the US if I’m not mistaken about this one.

The ABC’s of Life is a whole different situation;

I’ve Seen, Heard and been Privy to the various ideas of various People around me;

WILL and WANTING to do something in their Lives.

All of this is really good and I’d Never Ever tell a Soul not to REACH beyond for something Better in their Lives;

BUT then there’s so many People I’ve seen and found that didn’t GET the Basics RIGHT!

As the Saying goes:

Even the Best Laid Plans can go Astray…

But then, How many more People just goes Forth,

Not even Considering where they want to GO,

Or what kind of Plan they’d need be Putting in place in this Regard.

The moment we do not Plan well enough Ahead,

That’s the Time, Moment AND the Situation where we could Easily

Loose Traction in reaching our Goals or Destination!

It’s NOT to say that Things WILL be better the Better You plan ahead,

Seeing that Murphy’s Law or LIFE in General does tend to play a Role in our Plans.

You can DO whatever you can,

But things Just happen on their Own!

Thus, if you do plan,

This could easily involve someone who has more Knowledge of your idea,

Willing to help out more than you’d expect OR

They could just support you in doing what you need,

WORKING Your Rear Off in making things happen.

It is very easy for anyone to Fall off the Band-wagon,

Even MORE so when you’ve lost your Direction,

THUS, having as best Laid Plan AND

Those around who know what you’re Working toward;

They’d ALSO feel a little More involved in your Life,

They just might be that Pillar you need when things turn out a little


AND so,

All your dreams and ideas should Actually come with a

Action Plan,

Just to make the Next smallish – er Goal a little easier to reach.

Write it down,

Talk to ANYONE and Everyone who has any idea about yours,

They may give you In-valuable INFORMATION which you ONLY learn

By struggling through this – when you do not Have to do that…

Best of Luck…

Herbert’s HAT (World of Imagination Series, Book 1 of 6) Chapter 2, Section 5

HBD Cover Small


As soon as their nausea passed from the spinning in the grass Timmy’s parents looked around at where they were and at the forest itself.
“We’re seriously not going in there, are we? A dark, scary massive forest why would you want us to go in there?” Victoria asked in a fearful tone.
Standing still, they stared wide-eyed at the forbidding place. They were challenged each time they took a step and found neither of them had any strength left. Now, they were supposed to walk decisively into a frightening never ending forest?
Herbert only smiled at them. “The only one we should be worried about is Timmy. Inside this forest is the only place here, where you’ll see him without having to use any part of your imaginations.”
“Brilliant!” Donald said as he smiled widely.
“At least we’ll finally see him—right?” Victoria asked, “Well, what are we waiting for then?” She now appeared to look as enthusiastic as Donald did.
“Yes, you’ll see him. The only problem is while inside there, he’ll be glowing like a very sharp strong shining light. If he glows too brightly, they’ll come after us and capture all of us. You do need to know it would be really bad—no one escapes from this forest once you’ve been captured. Even if the Elders wanted to help, if we’re trapped inside there, we’ll not come out no matter what. Seeing him would be the only thing as well, because you couldn’t touch or hold onto him either,” Herbert told them, suspecting the question might come up.
“I have no idea why you’re taking us through here then. There must be another way in. if you’d only try to find it!” Timmy yelled at him, “What other way is there to get around this forest?”
Standing at the edge of the deep, murky expanding forest, they heard the roaring of something inside of it. They were terrified even more now than before. The four stood back as everyone wanted to use the other as a shield.
“If any of you make a sound inside, we might as well go in directly to their nest because there’s no way we’ll sneak past them if you lose your cool,” Herbert scolded Timmy, “You need to relax and you need to follow your own way through here. You’re the one who is invisible and you’re the one who’ll have to lead us through there. You’ll be shining just enough for us to see and nothing more.”
“Isn’t there another way?” Victoria asked.
“I asked that myself, so why don’t you answer me Herbert?” Timmy asked, “What are you not telling us?”
“The only way would be over the forest using those very fast birds. The ones we couldn’t even see or catch even if we wanted to. Not one of them has ever been captured!” he told Donald and Victoria while looking at the still invisible Timmy. “I’ve not told you because you just might scream or worse…lose your temper again.”
“Scream or lose my temper? Why in the world would you care—?”
The next roar they heard was close to them now. They dropped to the ground, just waiting. Lying like the dead.
“Whatever you do? Do. Not. Move,” Herbert warned them in a hushed tone while still lying there, not moving a muscle.
Within the darkness of the forest, they couldn’t even see past the second tree. But then suddenly, they saw the creature’s eye while it looked for any kind of movement outside the forest itself. It had only one eye. The whiteness of the lone eye almost shone like a light. With the eye moving, did they hear the sounds from the creature. They heard some trees being pushed over. Then the sound of tree limbs cracking under the pressure from the creature. Immediately, they heard where more branches broke in another place. There was a second creature searching through the darkness. They were sneaking up on the four—double-teaming their prey.
One of them moved away and the group could hear the sound of metal rubbing over metal. The screeching sound echoed the loudest from the back. Everyone lay like statues. Not one of them even swallowed too loudly or too often. They kept an eye on the spots in the forest where they heard both creatures. They once more, heard the roaring sounds ripping through the forest. Their roaring generated an actual wind and blew parts of the dead forest over.
Herbert only now breathed normally while looking over at Timmy. “If you really want to catch any of those birds, I think you should climb one of the trees over there. Then you can struggle getting up the waterfall. Flying might be the hardest to do from there, but with your willpower, you just might get there. But then getting up there and catching one of those isn’t impossible after you’ve been there a year or so.” He stood up while still shaking. “The big problem comes when you take a hold of one of them, because the rest will come and attack you…Forcing you to get off the other and thus fall to your death.”
Timmy himself still stood looking shaken by what he’d seen. “What—were those things—Why the one eye—What sort of monstrous creatures live in that forest?” he asked the questions rapidly.
Herbert almost didn’t hear what he’d actually asked as the questions were all muddled into one garbled sentence.
Neither Donald nor Victoria could seem to get up. Their legs were shaking pretty badly.
Herbert took a bright pink fruit from a nearby tree, giving it to them to get some energy back into their bodies and he turned to Timmy. “If you cannot control your fear or emotions, then all of us will die in here. If you don’t want to grow-up and you just want to stay here forever, it means you’ll never know more than this place and here isn’t as real as where you come from. You need to relax because we do not have any other choice in the matter.”
“Okay…okay. But do we really have to go in there? Just how far would we have to go before we’re out on the other side?” Timmy asked while staring at his weakened parents who were getting up slowly. “They wouldn’t last here for one day on their own would they?” He realized that just like at the start of this, Herbert was the only one who could help them.
“We have to go inside the forest now,” Herbert told them, walking over to the exact spot where the creatures looked through the trees trying to see them.
“Just let the record show—this is a very-very bad idea—we’re all going to die inside of this really-really weird scary place,” Timmy warned as he now stood next to Herbert.
Donald and Victoria slowly made their way to where Herbert stood.
“I really don’t want to go in there,” Victoria whispered while holding Donald’s hand tightly.
“We can at least see Timmy while we’re in there.” Donald squeezed her hand with his. “We have to continue to try and get out of this place and get back to our normal lives. If we survive this, we’ll need a very nice normal vacation.” He tried to give her a shaky smile.
“Don’t worry too much, we’re just following Timmy. He’s the one we’re going to have to worry about.” Herbert put his hand on Timmy’s shoulder. “One very careful step at a time…buddy.”
