Perception is a tricky thing, and it’s often wrong.
Well, not wrong as such, but rather it depends a lot on the perceiver, including their mood, their mind and their experiences.
Throughout this Movember experience, I’ve been trying to figure out what my moustache was going to look like. I’ve had several moustaches in the past, [...]
Once you have broken the overwrought pattern, the ends of it wave back and forth, madly trying to connect to other things. New patterns form, weak and unsupported, very tenuous and temporary. Strange insights may be had at this time, as the patterns are formed in your mind, and it feels freer than ever, [...]
I now look upon a collared shirt with no vest or no tie as somewhat lacking. It’s like it lacks structure and form.

It's produced each week for CHSR-FM 97.9 in Fredericton airing at 9am on Saturday mornings, or afterward as a podcast on theweirdshow.com.
Wandering Out Loud

Occasionally, these fascinations turn into a podcast or blog post at one of my other blogs, Understanding Podcasting.
