BreakFast Is For Lovers

Heya hiya ho there! Been taking a chill pill from the bloggy world.

Happy birthday…..no, I really mean it…..to all and everyone who has ever had one…..every day of the year!

What a strange coincidence that there are only 365 days in a year, and 8 billion people with birthdays…….so does that mean some people are bound to be born on the same day???? dang! It’s a birthfiesta every day!

While time has been passing by, i cut my hair short, shaved the beard, then grew my hair long again, and grew a goatee. Someone a few days ago said “Hey, I like the pirate look”  ??????

Despite what you may have heard, the world has decided to continue turning and spinning.

Did you know fossil fuels are in fact, no longer fossils?

Hey thanks to those who have continued to come back to check on my blog. i know it ain’t been much lately.
Been working a lot on my internet marketing and website building in my spare time. Got plans to release stuffs later on this year. I’m hoping to be working for my own businesses again soon.

In the mean time I continue to work as an overnight Mgr at a CRM Marketing firm. Ah the vampiric life…….

Is that the sun?……aaahhhhrrrrgggg.

Thom Sequoia: A few words about my friend Shane Jackman

Shane has been a friend for about 12 years. He is a very talented musician, and his music has influenced mine. I could not help but comment on this recent posted feature video on

http://www.iamanexmormon.com/2011/01/my-name-is-shane-jackman-and-im-an-ex-mormon/

And more particularly in response to Shane’s Dad’s ill placed public flogging letter in the comments section  about a third of the way down the webpage. Agree or not….well you go read it.

 

A small gesture

So after my last post, I sort of took my own advice.

Now I debated whether to tell this story.  Because, I’m not trying to pat myself on the back. More like I wanted to share the feeling of this. And with Christmas coming and all…..well, you know. Don’t ya?

So I needed to run to the library the other morning in Provo.  I was ten minutes early, before they opened. So I was sitting in my mini van, and an old woman rolled by in a wheel chair, down the access ramp, and into a side concrete area. She pulled out what looked like a morsel to eat. She was dressed in grey, had one missing leg with a false leg instead, was wrapped in older worn coats, had two different shoes on, a few shopping bags hanging from her wheelchair, and well…..you get it, right? She looked homeless.

It was cold out, and I thought to myself, should I just sit here, or maybe go say hello.  I also wanted to give her some money, since she may be in need. I didn’t have any on me, so I ran to an ATM.

When I got back, the Library still wan’t open, and she was still in the same spot. I walked up to her and said hello. We talked for maybe ten minutes. I asked her if she had a home. She said she was working on that, but that the shelter had some new transient housing funding that might be coming through soon. I asked her if I could give her some money, though it wasn’t very much at all. She was very appreciative.

Once when I was young and lived in San Diego with my roomates Craig and Phil, in college days, I took a homeless stranger home for the night to our apartment. That didn’t go over to well. You know, there are safety issues to think about, etc.

I wished I could do more for this woman. What I did was really not much, just a small gesture. But it felt good to just do something, ya know?

So we went into the library together, me walking, and her pushing her own wheelchair wheels. We said goodbye, and went to our seperate tasks.

Now the only reason I brought this up to tell you, is because it gave me a good feeling to do something, anything, even if it was just a small gesture.

My two oldest sons recently helped me get my computer running again, after it crashed 3 weeks ago. that also is a small gesture of their time to help me where I was unable to. I am appreciative of that.

May you find a way to give of yourself in some small way or gesture over the next few weeks before Christmas, when we celebrate Jesus birth along with Santa’s gifting.  It really does feel good.

Chao bello!

O.K., Im back. So come on over…

Thom Sequoia - Summer 2010 - Which the Prince and which the frog?

 

Oh heya!  Just stepped out for a bite to eat, and a quick nap…..3 months ago……since my last little bloggy post, ya know?

What ya been doin since I was gone?  I hope you’ve been breathing in the fresh air and sunshine. Did you go for a walk in the woods? Stop to watch a bird, or a snail, or a tiny insect? Maybe took in a mental picture of a majestic mountain that’s been there for about a million and one years, or stopped to notice the mighty roar of the ocean heaving it’s waves on the beach and rocky crags – in and out go the daily tides, pulled by the lull of a waxing moon.

A speck of a speck on the vast river of time you say? Why I do agree! So stop making excuses and GO DO WHAT YOU’VE BEEN WANTING TO DO, but have only been stopped by your belief in your own limitations. Who says that even exists? Maybe just trying something is succeeding…..you know, the journey is the destination and all that rot! I’ll root for you. And I’ll try and do what only fear has been preventing me from doing. What have we got to lose, anyway?

Let’s go do it baby! and have fun while were at it!

Thom Sequoia website Upgrades

Heya, hiya, ho there Matey’s!

Thought I’d get off the old duff, and add some pages to the Website / Blog.  So here it is.

I’ve changed the theme, and added a TS Bio page, a Photo’s page, a Touring page, and a  Media & Quotes page.

Please peruse pervasively with penultimate parsnips and petunias present, no matter how preposterous or preponderous perchance it may seem!

SPRING THAT COMES – A thought poem by Thom Sequoia

Spring That Comes

Haven’t written poetry in years. But tonight I felt like it. Here it is, off the cuff, written in the last 45 minutes, hot off the proverbial press!

SPRING THAT COMES

I feel the Spring coming.
Repeat of each journey around this elipse we cling.
Have we been here before, hanging in space –
This precise horizon, aligned again with Father
Sun and Mother Earth?

Aging things learn aging.
But there are new things that were not
here last time around this canting wheel.
River of Souls, come see such traffic jams
of the millions who leave and the earth
children who’ve just arrived!

Look!  Yellowed pages, poems
and songs I once knew.
Muse who came through this faltering mind,
I am glad at least of one thing I have learned –
to open the door and let you through.

Point to God, I dare you. Only leave your lofty finger
alight for an hour and a day. This way you cannot
be faulted for the full circumference of such universal tasks.
Earthly spin. Heaven Design. Emote what comes.

I still remember to look down and watch the lilies bloom,
the worried ant along his trail, the cicada song,
the human tear, and warming smile not at all
juxtaposed to how or why.

For this,
Find the ones you love and drop a gentle
kiss upon their brow,
a word of love mixed upon these
event horizons.

Come Spring. Green my vision again.
And I will smell as never before, until
we come around anew.
