Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast
Jan 12, 2023
If you don't know it's impossible it's easier to do. And because nobody's done it before, they haven't made up rules to stop anyone doing that again, yet." ~ Neil Gaiman Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said. “One can’t believe impossible things.”. “I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” ~Through the Looking Glass People d…
It's All Just a Big, Freaky, Wonderful Game!
Aug 19, 2022
"It's All just a Big, Freaky, Wonderful, Game!" ~Elizabeth Gilbert In Elizabeth Gilbert's book, "Big Magic" she discusses if it's better to be a trickster, like Buggs Bunny or a martyr, like Sir Thomas More. I'm not POSITIVE that I want to be a trickster. But I'm sure that I DON'T want to be a martyr, which apparently is my natural inclination. Well, WHO would really want to play the role of "victim?"

Summertime on the Point Sometimes I think I’m completely adjusted to my new life, but then I know - it hasn’t even begun. I filed for divorce. It was the right thing to do for my own health and happiness and also for his. Though we’ve been some type of companions for over a decade, we were never husband and wife, not the way I define it at least. So the time is upon me to redefine, in a kind, honest and loving way, how I choose to be on the earth. Who I am, What I will spend my hours doing, H…
I Live in an Eagle Sanctuary!
Apr 10, 2022
I have seen eagles in a "Death Spiral." I've seen it 3 times now, once last spring, but twice in the last week or so. Seeing something so dynamic takes my breath away! Any normal human would be moved by such a sight. I was sitting in my studio writing in my journal and planning my day, which I do almost every morning, when I saw them. It was as if the universe decided that my window was a movie screen and played the scene out for me...only for me. The giant birds circled each other getting clos…
