what a difference a day makes

Did you ever have words inside you that had to get out? i mean HAD TO GET OUT? I was just in the midst of finishing up this pendant, thinking about this amazing day, listening to my just-arrived-from-Amazon Anna Nalick cd, which I highly recommend, by the way, when I had to stop soldering and start writing. For quite a while now I've been paying close attention to my intuition, higher self, subconscious mind...whatever word you choose to use...and today it's telling me, screaming at me, to pay attention, remember this day and the events that occurred to cause the moments in time to come together just as they did. I wont go into details, but an over-crowded chiropractic office, my decision to not sit and wait, but to come home for a while instead, and go back 5 minutes made all the difference in the world, though I still don't understand exactly what kind of difference, but I know it did...all the little parts that made up the whole of this afternoon is noth…

rainy days and cats

…Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs
should relax and get used to the idea.

It’s a cloudy rainy day here in my neck o’North Carolina today, and I LOVE IT. I will choose rain and clouds over blue sky and sunshine any day. I would love to live in an area that gets rain more days of the year than not, but that isn’t very good weather for golfing, so the husband wont consider it. So I enjoy it when I am able to. I don’t know why I love it so….maybe because the trees and everything in nature look so different in the rain. Buildings, houses look different. Even people look different….scurrying to get in the door, in the car….no standing around outside doors or sitting on benches on rainy days. No perky fitness walkers trotting up and down the sidewalk outside my office during lunchtime…no sireeee. I’ve had friends I haven’t heard from in ages call me up on rainy days to say they were reminded of me, knowing how much I love the rain. I like th…

original since 1966

Last night I dreamed of several old friends, most of whom I haven’t been in touch with for years. In my dream they all came to visit me as a group, but in reality they don’t know each other, some of them even live in different states. Some were doing well, some were not, and some were going through the same ole shit. I’ve never been good at dissecting my dreams and figuring out what my higher/inner self is trying to communicate through them, but I do believe dreams are a big part of ourselves, and that we would learn a lot if we paid more attention to them, so I try to do that. It has definitely been a week in which friends have been at the center of my life, which isn’t always the case with me since I tend to be a more solitary soul. And just last evening was my monthly book group meeting. I so enjoy those ladies and their humor & wisdom…I love the feeling I’m left with by just being in the company of other women…it’s a feeling hard to explain, but I’m sure a lot of you know…

This little cutie keeps watch over me while I'm soldering and making a mess at my art table..... I have been surrounded by funny smart beautiful goddesses both in real life and virtual life. I had the most fun night out with the girls I've had in ages...thanks Carmella and Tina!!
