A Lohbado diagram... sometimes when a lot of nonsense floods the mind, it helps to look at the picture then hit the delete button. Go for a walk, relax, visit with a friend.

autonomous faculty of anxiety

One afternoon, after walking around for years with a knot of anxiety in the stomach, Lohbado concluded that the mind included an autonomous faculty of worry. The faculty of worry generates a feeling of dread, a sense of doom and gloom. The body tenses up, waiting for the unpleasant phone call or the traumatic registered letter. Sometimes in the middle of reading, a wave of worry would surge through his nervous system, making it difficult to concentrate.

Lohbado closed the book and looked up at the ceramic duck on the top shelf of a wooden cabinet. He took off his glasses and with his point and shoot camera, took a picture of the duck and his glasses, then heaved a sigh of relief. A duck provided focus, to steady the mind when thoughts were bobbing about.

meditation on the Plains of Radiation

Ernie died in a bistro. He slumped over the table. His face sank into a plate of spaghetti. He died in the pasta, tomato sauce all over his face. He was soon forgotten. Leave the dead to eat the dead. More people appear on the horizon. Soon a whole crowd fills the bistro. Open a window. Body odor, pepperoni, old cheese, compost smell, plus body heat, open a window. The ventilation system in the old building is not so great. Like most buildings in the neighborhood, it was done on a shoe string budget.
