Rhodiola for Focus, and Obsrvation
        Something I learned many years ago. We bock out all observations which do not pertain to survival or the task at hand.

       However, now that I am on high dose Rhodiola, I can be very VERY aware of many many things which I never paid attention to. Fascinating!

       I was at work a while ago. I noticed a Palmetto bug walking past me. I did not turn to look at it. I just paid attention to it. It froze and stopped all movement.

       How the fuck does a palmetto bug know I am looking at it?

       At home, the Palmetto bugs are my housemates. They have no fear of me or concerns I might stomp them. They could care less if I look at them walking on the floor. Some even come over to me to sniff my sandals to see what I have been walking in.

       They know I am no threat. They sure learn quickly!

       On my way to work the other day, I caught sight of a lizard on the wall of the Cabildo. I stopped to say Hi to the lizard. Someone came up and was about to kill the lizard. I knocked his hand away with my staff.

       The guy was upset. "What did you do that for? I was just going to kill the creepy lizard!"

       "Did that lizard steal your girlfriend or eat your dog? I don't think so! Were you going to eat the lizard? I doubt it.

       "NEVER kill another being unless it threatens you or you plan to eat it. Especially when you are just a visitor here. Don't fuck with the local ecosystem!"

       He backed away, looking confused and a little frightened of me.

       More and more, I am beginning to feel like Doctor Doolittle's cousin who relates to non-mammals.

       Seems to me Rhodiola might be good for Autistic kids to help them focus. Also for researchers trying to figure out a complex set of interactions.

       I am also understanding mis-communications with Raven. We had an open relationship, but she freaked out anytime I had a female friend, whether I wanted to go to bed with the gal or not.

       Tonight I realized something. When Raven spoke of her past, she became non-monogamous near the end of a monogamous relationship when she began to explore other options. Whereas I had multiple lovers with no thought of leaving my primary relationship. So we meant different things when using the words open relationship and non-monogamy.
