“What we do during our working hours determines what we have; what we do in our leisure hours determines what we are.”
It appears as though men are being paid for their “leisure”. It’s nothing new and fits in here too.
I chose that photo, so maybe you could recognize it.
Cameras have come a long way, haven’t they?
Remember that flashbulb once it was “LIT“? It was like instantaneous molten plastic/glass had frozen – all bubbled up. I don’t remember if it was hot or not.
It probably was, because we lived dangerously back then. Right? It’s here.
I’ve written several things, and have already removed them – so if you see something you like – you might want to read… before they instantly – go “POOF“!
Or if so inclined you prefer variety – then please feel free to tell me – I’ve always been open to suggestions.
One piece that is “GONE” revealed the secret to my artistic photography,
Which began earnestly using a pocket-sized, red – digital Kodak – until it died… on me.
My face can kill a camera. No, not literally! They only have so many – clicks – then they break.
It’s like bending a wire repeatedly, eventually it snaps in half.
What’s the moral to that? Persistence pays off!
Here’s the other quote for you, by Mr. George Eastman:
“I don’t believe in men waiting until they are ready to die before using any of their money for helpful purposes.”
©IM Infusion Musings a casual peer level life coach. My style is to guide and write to you impromptu, personally, and help you smile. I’ve been known for years to make the tough stuff in life really clear, lift burdens, and help make life appear more simple – or less complex – to understand.
I grew up living my life – focused on listening intently to (communicating with) my Korean mother – translating and explaining the minutia of seemingly everything. Sometimes her words were the wrong ones – totally, and I knew what she meant – exactly. I was the only one in the family who knew what she meant with precision.
Writing like this is more homey or cozy to me. It sets me apart in this world, and I like it.
She and my Creator, using nature vs nurture formed my unique mind too. Being born in petri dish of incredible unimaginable diversity helps tremendously with innately understanding interwoven intricacies in communications, and the most difficult relationships. Including the one with your “self”.
My Korean mother reared me as child to think globally and about others first, founded upon a culture of respect. It’s definitely flawed for women around the world. It’s a common theme that’s out of balance.
My mother would also like to contribute!
From our unique bond and communication, my hope is to reach ANYONE HURTING, or share the way to stop the cycle! NOT to impress people.
It helps if others would interact, yet my topic(s) is deliberately chosen, extremely personal and painful. I can wait. Got a topic? There’s a contact option at the top. No website necessary. Please be patient. Curious about something for a friend? Suicidal thoughts? (WARNING: Call the crisis line, 911, go the emergency room, or call your country’s emergency number immediately if escalating badly FIRST!)
I’m experienced with it voluntarily and professionally. (Did you realize red looks black to certain color blind men?)
I am NOT here to be your counselor, give advice – OR – be anything for free, OK? I have a life, please respect it. I can also tell the difference between questions and manipulation. “Peer” means I speak on your level of experience with natural empathy, or I can relate. Need an explanation so you know you aren’t alone, and can breathe better? Ask me, come read, more importantly – learn – to understand, calm down, and relax.
(Without help – I am seeking employment! This is voluntary. When gainfully employed I am extremely dedicated.)
I post whenever – not according to analytics, although I am very analytical. (Not to be confused with analyzing people, it’s a preconceived notion to think nonsense like that.) Again, I am NOT HERE TO IMPRESS or judge anyone. If you are interested, then YOU MAKE the EFFORT and FOLLOW ME.

It took a life time to reach this point of understanding, and it certainly cost me more than education and money. How else would I understand?
If you would you please?
If you are in danger or know someone who is – of domestic violence or domestic assault, who needs information QUICK. This link HERE – is The National Domestic Violence HOTLINE. It is in the USA, but the information is very helpful, even if you are located outside the USA.
My writing will be more discreet leaning toward safety for women (yet there is no specific age or gender) who feel like and think they have no voice. It will be disguised behind unsuspecting beautiful, generic titles and pictures – for obvious reasons.
It’s not only for women though. There is no gender when it comes to fearing for your life, or not feeling safe in your, or outside your own home. That covers PTSD.
Anyone is welcome here – from anywhere around the world. I’ll mix it up with humor!
EVERYONE has been touched by this issue. Please share this, and help save a life. It will not be the first time I’ve done it, nor will it be it be the last. If you support this cause – I ask you sincerely, “Will you please support my endeavors?” – with togetherness – we succeed.
This specific category of forgotten human beings – globally – is going completely unnoticed publicly.
eaWomen suffer the most and greatly (yet there is no specific age or gender), and do not exist to be cheated on repeatedly and unsuspectedly by a dangerous misogynist serial adulterer, punched, slugged, strangled, knocked unconscious, stabbed, raped, shot, poisoned with street drugs/alcohol, conned, stuck the house with no transportation, criticized, abandoned, neglected financially and/or emotionally, driven to second guess our own choices, bruised, kicked, conned or used as bait unwittingly by males posing as conservative, christian, open-minded liberals, unmarried, military, or uniformed anything, questioned relentlessly, intimidated; females (there is no specific age or gender), and are not here to be smashed in doors repeatedly, burned with cigarettes, laughed at, called names, hit with trucks/cars in a garage, head put through a wall, hair ripped out, heads smashed on concrete and bleeding, left apologizing for bleeding on a borrowed sweater, left hiding behind long sleeves or any garment, told how to lie about bruises; grabbed by the scuff of the neck, while being cornered and yelled terribly foul names, facing a tightly clenched fist in her face – or some other deadly weapon; resorting to cutting, being threatened to fight, thrown, terrorized for years inside the house – careers destroyed in the eyes of society, all while hidden from family and friends behind HIS personality, left, feeling ashamed – and “we” aren’t to be blamed for anything, but are – for every single thing beyond imagination “except world hunger”. It begins all over with more lies… when – the – door – closes.
The list goes on.
Sadly, so many could silently – add to it – and maybe are… Which one describes you?
Enough is enough. Together, we can stop the cycle and get out of these potentially deadly relationships. I have an answer, but it will not be clearly defined! Nor am I here to be held accountable for the actions or behaviors of another human being. I do not hold that sort of power over another’s behavior.
Hands in the air – whatever you do – I am NOT telling you how or what to do! You are an adult and your life is your own responsibility. True?
To escape anything with your life in tact is how you gain the title – “Survivor“.
If you made it this far.
Remember: Personal safety FIRST, and the word “evidence”.
