"All the leaves are brown and the skies are grey...California dream'in on such a winter's day"

I find looping, repetative music really soothing. Like when websites have a little sound clip running in the backround non-stop. The drone sets a nice rythem. Office depot had this quirky tune running on repeat on an in store kiosk for sirrius radio. Very trance inducting. maybe the overtones that are created make you buy more.

[Middle English entencioun, from Old French intention, from Latin intenti, intentin-, from intentus, intent, from past participle of intendere, to direct attention. See intend.]

Synonyms: intention, intent, purpose, goal, end, aim, object, objective
These nouns refer to what one plans to do or achieve. Intention simply signifies a course of action that one proposes to follow: It is my intention to take a vacation next month. Intent more strongly implies deliberateness: The executor complied with the testator's intent. Purpose strengthens the idea of resolution or determination: “His purpose was to discover how long these guests intended to stay” (Joseph Conrad). Goal may suggest an idealistic or long-term purpose: The college's goal was to raise ten million dollars for a new library. End suggests a long-range goal: The candidate wanted to win and pursued every means to achieve that end. Aim stresses the direction one's efforts take in pursuit of an end: The aim of most students is to graduate. An object is an end that one tries to carry out: The object of chess is to capture your opponent's king. Objective often implies that the end or goal can be reached: The report outlines the committee's objectives.

I stumbled across this book yesterday at Barnes and Noble and looked up what my destiny, or Karmic Path as they call it is. It is "Intention". What this means is that my goal, or path this time around is to learn how to follow through with a plan and not get side-tracked in simple diversions. Oh, so funny.

It's become painfully obvious this is the case. The events of the past month have been one of those "wacky" reminders the universe (God, if you're so inclined) throws at you to keep one on track. Keep on track. Keep on track.

Ok, I'm back.
