True friendships and an aerial view

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

These past few days had been a refreshing cleanse. We live, we learn, we grow.  You learn who your friends are in crisis, and who is your enemy. Morals, values, and even lies become hauntingly clear in all.

Friends push the other to strive to be a better person. Rick, my hubby reminded me of this fact last night. We went back to 1989, High School. He was already out of High School, and I wanted to drop out and hang with him all day. I was 17.

He took a look at me, told me I didn't have a choice, and he wouldn't have it. Then drove my dumb ass to school every day. At the time, I was trying to figure out why he didn't want me to hang with him all day. Looking back, ahem, 20 years later, I see a young person, who loved me, and wanted me to succeed, rather than fail. That's love.

I push my daughter way too hard. I wanted to raise her in a way that she didn't fall to the same mistakes. But by doing that, by the time she turned 18, she wanted freedom like a drug. I never even asked her what she wanted. I told her what she needed. I didn't allow for her to even have a say. That was wrong of me.

Being on the right path, is not about certainty, I learned. Cause and effect is more like it! We make choices, we start walking on a path, and it looks, feels, tastes right, or not. If you started a path, and it ends, or doesn't feel right, BACK UP! CHANGE DIRECTION.

There are angels in this world. I won't share her name yet, til I ask her permission. But without her, and many others, a path choice could have gone deadly wrong. And JMT grabbed everyone, and backed us out of the "No Outlet" road.  Cause sometimes, even we can't see the path end.  It's okay to take guidance from others. People on the outside have an aerial view of the path! And you never know if there is a bridge ahead, or not!

SO DARN HAPPY TODAY!

Daydream - Arthur Seymour John Tessimond

Saturday, December 26, 2009


One day people will touch and talk perhaps easily,


And loving be natural as breathing and warm as sunlight,


And people will untie themselves, as string is unknotted,


Unfold and yawn and stretch and spread their fingers,


Unfurl, uncurl like seaweed returned to the sea,


And work will be simple and swift as a seagull flying,


And play will be casual and quiet as a seagull settling,


 And the clocks will stop, and no one will wonder or care or notice,


And people will smile without reason,


Even in winter, even in the rain.

I Have Longed to Move Away - Dylan Thomas

Sunday, December 20, 2009

I have longed to move away
From the hissing of the spent lie
And the old terrors' continual cry
Growing more terrible as the day
Goes over the hill into the deep sea;
I have longed to move away
From the repetition of salutes,
For there are ghosts in the air
And ghostly echoes on paper,
And the thunder of calls and notes.

I have longed to move away but am afraid;


Some life, yet unspent, might explode
Out of the old lie burning on the ground,
And, crackling into the air, leave me half-blind.
Neither by night's ancient fear,
The parting of hat from hair,
Pursed lips at the receiver,
Shall I fall to death's feather.
By these I would not care to die,
Half convention and half lie.

Dylan Thomas

Dylan Marlais Thomas (27 October 1914 – 9 November 1953) was a Welsh poet and writer who wrote exclusively in English. In addition to poetry, he wrote short stories and scripts for film and radio, which he often performed himself.

His public readings, particularly in America, won him great acclaim; his sonorous voice with a subtle Welsh lilt became almost as famous as his works.

Thank you Charles, for your patience, and wonderful time that you have spent with me teaching me about the old world, and culture. I have met a new friend, and so happy about it!

Social Solidarity - Humanity Healing team

“To recognize the social solidarity of the human family brings with it the responsibility to build on what makes us one.

This means promoting effectively and without exception the equal dignity of all as human beings endowed with certain fundamental and inalienable human rights.

This touches all aspects of our individual life, as well as our life in the family, in the community in which we live, an in the world.

Once we truly grasp that we are brothers and sisters in a common humanity, then we can shape our attitudes towards life in the light of the solidarity which makes us one. This is especially true in all that relates to the basic universal project: peace.”

John Paul II ‘Development and Solidarity: two keys to peace’.

"If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together."

~ Aboriginal activists group, Queensland, 1970s

Let us gather today in Solidarity with all creation and vibrate love towards everyone that is in need of Healing, peace and Hope.

Together we stand,
Humanity Healing team

Deep peace of the running wave to you

Saturday, December 19, 2009


Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
 

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
 

Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
 

Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.

21 Wise Sayings

Sunday, December 13, 2009

I have special dedications to people on my website later this week.

So I am going to be lazy, and post a wonderful email I received from MountainWings.




21 Wise Sayings.

1. The best way to get even is to forget...

2. Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death.

3. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts...

4. Some folks wear their halos much too tight...

5. Some marriages are made in heaven, but they ALL have to be
  maintained on earth...

6. Unless you can create the WHOLE universe in 5 days, then
  perhaps giving "advice" to God, isn't such a good idea.

7. Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, and faith looks up...

8. Standing in the middle of the road is dangerous.
  You will get knocked down by the traffic from both ways.

9. Words are windows to the heart.

10. A skeptic is a person who when he sees the handwriting on
    the wall, claims it's a forgery.

11. It isn't difficult to make a mountain out of a molehill,
    just add a little dirt.

12. A successful marriage isn't finding the right person-it's
    being the right person.

13. The mighty oak tree was once a little nut that held its
    ground.

14. Too many people offer God prayers with claw marks all over
    them.

15. The tongue must be heavy indeed, because so few people can't
    hold it.

16. To forgive is to set the prisoner free, and then discover
    the prisoner was you.

17. You have to wonder about humans, they think God is dead and
    Elvis is alive.

18. It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again.
    Just be sure to flush when you are done.

19. You'll notice that a turtle only makes progress when it
    sticks out its neck...

20. If the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, you
    can bet the water bill is higher.

21. And last but not least -- God gave the angels Wings, and He
    gave humans CHOCOLATE!!!!!

Keep smiling, and ...if you see someone's missing one....
give them one of yours!!

The Sun was still warm

Saturday, December 5, 2009

"The sun was still warm, it hardly lit up the earth any more, however; just as a torch placed against the... only lights them up with a feeble light, so the sun, torch of the earth, was going out, letting a last feeble light escape from its body of fire, which nevertheless allowed the green leaves of the trees, the little fading flowers, and the enormous tops of the centuries-old pines, poplars, and okas to be seen.

The refreshing wind, that is to say a fresh breeze, moved the leaves of the trees with a rustling somewhat similar to that which the silvery waters of the brook made, flowing at my feet. The ferns bent their green heads before the wind. I fell asleep, not without refreshing myself with the water of the brook. I dreamt that... I was born in Rheims, in the year 1503.

II

At that time Rheims was a little town, or, to put it better, a borough, nevertheless famous for its beautiful cathedral, witness to the coronation of king Clovis...

To be continued...
