My special mission over this past year has involved being at peace with ‘what is’ in my life. This has, in no small measure, been influenced by the declination and, finally, the death of my father.
I have been a long-time off and on practitioner of various… Read full post »
I dislike that I can't use this crossout feature in the
title which should read TEN THINGS NO ONE CARES
TO KNOW ABOUT ME
but that title would have been too long to fit into the right column feed. Here goes nothing, and I invite you to do the… Read full post »
Most people would say my father’s eyes were his most arresting feature, but being so similar to the ones that met me… Read full post »
I like to think I'm a tolerant
person. I also like to think I'm a long legged, blue eyed, thirty
five year old stunner, yet only one of those is true. I'm not what
you would call oblivious exactly, but I can have an air of
Don Miguel Ruiz has had a remarkable life, and two deaths already. He left his chosen field of medicine to live his story and his writings have become a pivotal point of light in my life. They sound simple, but now I know simplicity is the… Read full post »
I can't believe I'm entering the spray rally, but here goes.
First memory was chili with beans being thrown into reverse across the narrow aisle of floor between me and my brother's twin bed. Now that I think about it, that may be when he truly started to dislike me.… Read full post »
I struggle with posts. When I set out to write I plunk away for a bit, then go on and on with the tinkering and the editing and the re-editing and the editing of the re-editing, until I usually do the computer equivalent of balling it up and sending it Jordan-style… Read full post »
My horrorscope told me to try to get my points across today without upsetting others, so I'm going with tantric sex. Who gets upset about that?
Tantra is a spiritual practice that covers all the bases, but the idea of tantric sex caught some smart… Read full post »
I'm sentimental about puppy licks, a baby's teeny little feet, the scent in the air before the first snow, It's a Wonderful Life, and the first crocus of Spring. I have to say, though, Valentine's Day leaves me cold.
It's a fabricated holiday with no
When my Uncle Bimbo, mom's brother, called Christmas Eve morning from the field at the farm, this was the gist of the conversation:
him: this Jean?
me: who wants to know lunkhead?
him: oh, it's you. well, ask yo momma what kinda greens she wants me/… Read full post »

Who would you be without your accomplishments, or failures, your degrees, or lack thereof, your bank accounts, your experiences, your title, your home, your status?
As simple as the question may appear, it's actually quite difficult to genuinely se… Read full post »
I came across this written by a fellow member who will forever remain anonymous and posted it myself because I thought it was funny, clever, and it made me laugh...
I probably will never post this:

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then, face to face. Now I know in part, but then shall I know, even as also I am known.

After the roller coaster riding this past week, upping and downing and upping and downing, I'm in the mood to turn on some e-z listening, crack open something wet and cold, and order chinese delivery. I'd like Thai, but who does that? No deliveries of food in Florida other than pizza… Read full post »
After reading Torman's post today I came back over to my own and banged out my response to the latest tempest in the OS teapot - maybe banged isn't exactly right, but here goes.
Torman says this...

A few thoughts after reading Aine Greaney's post today...
Over the course of about a year I've watched the slow unrolling of a carpet of colorful ink furling down from under the edges of my hairdresser's shirtsleeves. Blue, gold, red, pink, and many shades of green, as her body art represents the lushness… Read full post »
Due to an executive decision on the part of OS staff this week, many posts did not appear in the FPF (front page feed), which Emily stated was deliberately switched from a 4 hour feed to a 1 day feed (actually it was 'stuck' for more like a day and a… Read full post »
I have a phone conversation with my 77 year old mother pretty much every day. Lately, they have taken an interesting turn...
