50 SHADES OF RAY part 2


  And so the new year is upon us and just like I promised I'd post the second half of Ray's 50 shades. 2013 is just around the corner and even though my city and much of the eastern sea board have been hit with a wicked snow storm the new year promises to be even better. The second part of this list proved to be more challenging than the first. I didn't wanna repeat myself with part 1 only using different words and phrases. Much of these are from life experiences that we all go through that on a daily basis that make you laugh, smile, sigh or down right frustrated in anger. And of course I made a list of fifty.
On the horizon in the near future I'll also be posting some short stories. Some of these includes some erotic pieces I've been dabbling in as well as a sci-fi short or what ever subject my imagination gets pulled towards.


1.       If you were to live 700 years the difference between a 40 year old, a 60 year old and a 20 year old would mean they’re still both children…you’re never too old to learn something new.
2.       Good sex with a stranger is better than bad sex with a known lover.
3.       Don’t pass the driver materials to read
4.       Good things come to those who wait, but even better things come to those who know the difference between waiting, ready and procrastination.
5.       Tip the waiter
6.       Stop renting out space in your head towards your fears.
7.       You and you alone hold the key to your success; no one can bestow it upon you.
8.       Relish in the rays of the sun and praise yourself
9.       Always hold a new baby when you first meet them, they like that.
10.    Don’t rely on your anger being the driving cause for accomplishing anything, what happens when you’re no longer angry.
11.    All dogs go to heaven, including the ones that bite, so spend less time hating your enemies and focus on loving your friends.
12.   Sometimes all you need is a new pair of shoes to put a spring in your step
13.     Be nice to the elderly woman next door.
14.    Keep it simple
15.   Real life experience is worth more than any book smarts any day, providing you keep the book close by for those times when you get stumped.
16.    The world don’t need to hear all about your dirty laundry, keep some discretion on your Facebook posts.
17.    The best things in life are free, including peace of mind
18.    Rules are guidance for wise men and blind obedience for fools.
19.     Take responsibility for the life that you want.
20.    Give out love like it’s free.
21.    Placing blame instead of assigning or accepting responsibility is a slippery slope
22.    Spend less time chasing the world
23.    Feel comfortable in your own skin
24.    All things being equal, All equal being things, All beings equal things…read that a few times to let it sink in.
25.    Life is a theory in relativity
26.   The world moves in one way, outward and upward towards less fear, if you move otherwise you will become entrenched underfoot.
27.  Surround yourself with people you admire and challenge you to be your best you.
28.  Every now and then get that blood pumping in a good way.
29.  Turn off the TV and read a damn book.
30.  Connect back with your creativity, write a poem, paint a picture, laugh or have sex.

50 Shades of Ray


It’s been a long while since I added some words to my beloved grandiosity spot. I’ve started a few times to only run out of words or simply couldn’t muster enough brevity to follow through. It’s been on my To Do list of things for 2012 even if we are in the 10th month of the year. I suppose my main poke might be my muse of being a perfectionist. In that sense you’re left with many projects that lay on the shelf to one day see the light of day as soon as they are supposedly ‘ready’. But aren’t we all like that to a certain degree. 

In my day to day life I’ve come up with a few choice thoughts and knick knacks that often run through my mind to keep me sane and logical. Hopefully you may find a few that you like and enjoy. The goal is to come up with 50 of them. More to come, soon, I promise.


1.       Happiness comes in all colors, including old people who have long lost their minds.
2.       Don’t feed the squirrels’ cause they will just keep coming back.
3.       Don’t argue with people you no longer respect, you’ll just keeping offering clever ways of their deficiency instead of making your point.
4.       Sometimes it’s just good to laugh at what others think of you, instead of using your precious energy to prove them wrong.
5.       Pissing in the shower never hurt anyone
6.       Some foods taste best as morning leftover
7.       When the police knock on your door and you open it, try not to make any sudden moves.
8.       Do what you love, love what you do. Even if you are an assassin, a hooker, a politician and someone who has no clue of what to do with their life and just hanging around and going with the tide of everyone else.
9.       Do not throw stones at sea gulls
10.   When walking your dogs remember to walk your dogs and not let them walk you.
11.   Kiss your lover passionately even if love is not present.
12.   To first fall in love, you must first fall in love with yourself before anyone else.
13.   Children are geniuses
14.   Alcohol doesn’t solve our problems, it just makes us feel smarter than what we really are.
15.   When surrounded by fools telling them that they are fools you will eventually become one, it’s best to downplay your cleverness until you can safely get away.
16.   If happiness is a choice then why the hell are you so damn miserable, shut up and stop complaining.
17.   Most marriages don’t last because people can’t calculate – account for – look forward to – make room for – make critical decisions on – take time for CHANGES in the relationship…man that’s a lot of things.
18.   Separate your garbage from your recycling.
19.   If you are what you eat, then 12 beers a day means you’re are a dumb ass…but somehow think your Einstein.
20.   When two people are fighting only step in if you can actually kick at least one of their asses.
