Year of the Tiger 
What can I say 
Your  tooth and claw 
gave scares that will stay. 
I fought like a Lion 
And didn't live like a pussy 
Anything less 
Would have made me a wussy. 
Your jungle was fierce 
And your forest was thick,
I still made it through 
Without stroking my stick. 
I barely played this year 
And all I did was work 
I never had a dull moment 
Not with my smirk...

What Is Gaslighting?
Excerpted from The Gaslight Effect: How to Spot and Survive the Hidden Manipulation Others Use To Control Your Life... (or at least try to)< I added that part...

Something I heard this morning on the tube while washing breakfast dishes and getting ready to go to work.

"My husband was having an affair with my sister for about year. But for a long time right before I caught them in bed with each other, they both tried to convince me for over a year that my suspicions about them having an affair was just me being crazy, paranoid and not well. Even after they were caught fucking each other for a year, after the divorce, they still behaved with me like I was crazy and paranoid I commend there efforts but they both fail; mind games"

Later on facebook I posted the above...

Melissa Ulto: that is called "gaslighting"

William Fuentes: Gaslighting? What is that?

Are You Being Gaslighted?

Your husband crosses the line in his flirtations with another woman at a dinner party. When you confront him, he asks you to stop being insecure and controlling. After a long argument, you apologize for giving him a hard time.

Your boss backed you on a project when you met privately in his office, and you went full steam ahead. But at a large gathering of staff - including yours - he suddenly changes his tune and publicly criticizes your poor judgment. When you tell him your concerns for how this will affect your authority, he tells you that the project was ill-conceived and you'll have to be more careful in the future. You begin to question your competence.

Your mother belittles your clothes, your job, your friends, and your boyfriend. But instead of fighting back as your friends encourage you to do, you tell them that your mother is often right and that a mature person should be able to take a little criticism.

If you think things like this can't happen to you, think again. Gaslighting is when someone wants you to do what you know you shouldn't and to believe the unbelieveable. It can happen to you and it probably already has.

How do we know? If you consider answering "yes" to even one of the following questions, you've probably been gaslighted: >>>

1. Does your opinion of yourself change according to approval or disapproval from your spouse?

2. When your boss praises you, do you feel as if you could conquer the world?

3. Do you dread having small things go wrong at home - buying the wrong brand of toothpaste, not having dinner ready on time, a mistaken appointment written on the calendar?

Gaslighting is an insidious form of emotional abuse and manipulation that is difficult to recognize and even harder to break free from. That's because it plays into one of our worst fears - of being abandoned - and many of our deepest needs: to be understood, appreciated, and loved. In this groundbreaking guide, the prominent therapist Dr. Robin Stern shows how the Gaslight Effect works and tells you how to:

Turn up your Gaslight Radar, so you know when a relationship is headed for trouble

Determine whether you are enabling a gaslighter

Recognize the Three Stages of Gaslighting: Disbelief, Defense, and Depression

Refuse to be gaslighted by using the Five Rules for Turning Off the Gas

Develop your own "Gaslight Barometer" so you can decide which relationships can be saved -and which you have to walk away from

Learn how to Gasproof Your Life so that you'll never again choose another gaslighting relationship.

"After you've done it for so many years, you have to find a new direction. You have to find something in your soul that's going to push you towards - to find your inspiration" ~Elvis Stojko

"Fashion is so close in revealing a person's inner feelings and everybody seems to hate to lay claim to vanity so people tend to push it away. It's really too close to the quick of the soul" ~Stella Blum

"oh yeah I forgot that part"
Hot Yoga for the mind...

"Simple, clear purpose and principles give rise to complex and intelligent behavior. Complex rules and regulations give rise to simple and stupid behavior"
~ Dee Hock
"If you use these principles wisely and intelligently, there can be no uncertainty as to the outcome of any endeavor, and no limit to your possibilities"
~ R.M
How does it work, oh yeah that way. Even if you win you blah blah blah. I guess that all depends on what part you really care about. Some talent's come with principles that can be applied to anything you put your mind to. Mathematicians and accountants after work some time gamble, cards, poker, whatever. They say, most carpenters are precise kinds of people, get the job done right the first time on the first try, motivation? The bill.. A thought processes does not have the mechanics of spelling during an idea, that comes second. Get it down first and then shape it up. Only a dumb-ass is going to be concerned about the spelling as they are jotting down or short handing an idea on paper.
"We are formed and molded by our thoughts. Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them" ~Buddha
Even if you win you cant beat there rep as quickly. That guy stinks; when it comes to selflessness. I could be wrong. Now selfishness, that might get him the wins, and that stinks even more. Personal best can be a drive, its tricky when the moment arises. I have neglected my self for a long time along w'dat-drinking-thang to tolerate something that has always been my choice to put with. Vanity, is a brick tied to your back hand. This pool hall is a village with little tribes and clicks of people competing with one another. When is the last time you shot well and lost? The pressure is off if you embrace humility. The perseverance afterward is the big blue, wave, ride, the source. Much more rewarding.
"In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock" ~Thomas Jefferson

3-O-Clock High

3:O-Clock cue ball masse into the top short rail from the long rail just a little past the middlle pocket; Alcatrazed. I shoot for the 4 ball.

The cue ball still in 3:O-Clock-masse spin after making 4ball, then proceeds off of bottom long rail slowley parking the cue ball directly in the middle of the table with an 8 ball directly in front of center pocket for the win.
