Sailing In The Room Alone.

Deconstruction of reality; the construction of the intangible world.

Twiddling With The Uncomprehensible.

The subconscious fear of conformity has surfaced. We are uncomprehensible creatures. We seek for comfort in acceptance. We travel in packs. We would trade our mothers to "fit in." But we also take the road less travel. We make bold statements with our striving differences. What are we? What does it mean to not be one-in-a-million?

Courage spiked with confidence.

Treading water, we'll make it one day.

Final Image To 'Watching The Clock' Series.

The Great Escapist.

Well, we might not be, but mice have a great sense of direction and from generation to generation, they have master the ability to outsmart us and outrun us.

Escapism, a great way to prolonging life, but also a pitiful one depending on the context. We escape from the world for many reasons. From reality seems to be the big one, responsibility, the future, the past, and the present. Escaping mentally and emotionally through substance seems to be the quickest road away from pain, stress, life, but keep in mind that life cannot be ran away from; warning, you can run, but you cannot hide.

If escaping is the only way, then escape to a place you can call home, a place surrounded by loved ones, a place of peace and serenity. Don't allow yourself to be a victim of your own traps.
Live to be free and content.

Watching The Clock Series: Sick As A Dog.

Sick As A Dog; a person who is ill, various kinds of ailments, sick with stomach problems.

Being sick can keep you up all night. Feeling feverish, sweaty, clammy, chilly, and twisting in pain can be quite hard to fall asleep to. Waking up at intervals to take the appropriate medication can also pull you out from a deep sleep. Drastic emotional states of mind can lead to the destruction of the physical state of being. Take care of yourself, only you know your limitations well.

Watching The Clock Series: Dreamsequence 6: Bull Stampede

Grab The Bull By Its Horns; Dealing problems head-on, taking charge.

Problems won't go away, you have a big, white elephant in the room. Suppression does buy you some time, but you will have to pay twice the price later on. These are words to avoid: delay, hesitance, procrastinate, rain-check, hindrance, suppression, bottle up, sit-with, endure... Take the bulls by their horns, take them on, one by one, dwindle down the stampede. You are not just a matador, but a conqueror of life and every precious moment of it. So live for the moment now.

Watching The Clock Series: Dreamsequence 5

Birds Of A Feather Flock Together; Those of similar taste congregate in groups.

Scientifically: Ornithologists explain this behavior as a 'safety in numbers' tactic to reduce their risk of predation.

Psychologically: We are creature who self-divide ourselves into cliches and categories and subcategories. We give ourselves labels and praise amongst those who fit our mold and we scowl at those who do not fit in and yet again, label them too. It is a tough world to live in when one must give in to conformity in order to gain status. We contemplate whether it is worth it. America was suppose to be the land of freedom and all about individuality, but you will find that beneath the surface, are hidden cookie-cutter traps and agendas of conformity whether subtle or blatantly obvious. Come as you are, do not give in to social pressure, on the other hand, do not try and seek for attention in extravagant ways either.

Just be, and be so content just being.

Watching The Clock Series: Big Fish In A Small Pond

Self-Perception, Mental States and Social Situations.

Ambitious, passionate, motivated states of mind move us along through the hurdles of life. Sometimes we stay idle in life because we are comfortable with the current situation. But what is life without challenges, without change, without successes and failures. We cannot forever be the big fish in the small pond. It will be difficult to be pulled out of the box we sometimes put ourselves in. Sometimes we need to prod, provoked, challenged, and made feel uncomfortable. Without all those things, we would not be willing to strive to better ourselves and broaden our horizons. Sometimes it is okay to be the little fish in the big pond, to be challenged. We must always keep moving forward. We must not think of ourselves as being immune to anything or everything, because we must prepare ourselves for the unexpected. Allow yourself to be vulnerable, so your weakness are revealed, then build and strengthen yourself up and be ready to face the unexpected.

"You might be a big fish, in a little pond, doesn't mean you've won, cause along may come, a bigger one." -Coldplay.
