8/25/10 Friendship Inspirations


Inspired by a couple of quotes...

The quotes

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive. ~Anäis Nin

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies. ~Aristotle

I've written about friendship before and I'm sure I will again. Just as I'm sure you will get tired of me talking about it. But my friends are my family so they mean a lot to me.

The first quote is very true. I believe there are many worlds to be found in each one of my friendships. Life would be a dull and boring place if you didn't have friends.

The second quote really resonates with me as I've had that experience many times. I have many friends and have many acquaintances. The friends I know find me in some of the strangest ways but I always know a kindred soul. Something about their eyes. They say eyes are windows to the soul and that is very true.

So now I’m going to open this blog to comments for my friends to comment on why we are friends and why are you drawn to me? What makes me the one you can rely on. What do you see when you first see me whether it be online or in person?

I'm also going to attach a video of one of my favorite Beatles tune.

Until next time.....

8/21/10 Inspirations from The Pagan Norse

Ramblings inspired by the video Pagan Norse....

I'm again finding myself learning another piece to my comes to me in jagged pieces. Perhaps, I will eventually finish this jigsaw of my spiritual life. I was online for some reason and was drawn to this video Pagan Norse. Now I'm sure some of you are knowledgeable about the Norse gods and goddesses. I wouldn't go as far as say I would worship these gods and goddesses because I don't go for the whole god and goddesses ideals. I think they were legends from long ago that through people's perceptions have made them into gods. I would venture to say spirit guides of sorts. Many years ago I was drawn to the Norse mythology and find myself again back to this circle. I was specially interested in Freya and I like the thought of Valkyries. At one time, I felt a feminine energy that I felt reminded me of Freya’s energy..I think she is still with me but in the background with everyone else that help me along with my path. I was talking to another friend about this phenomenon and he said maybe my true self was coming to life. The old ways are part of me very much so. A lot of things I agree with are on this line.

My family is Finnish/Scandinavian in origins so when I hear music along this idea I feel a deep resonance inside I'm closer to finding the next piece in my spiritual jigsaw.

So moving forward I'm going to check more into the Finnish beliefs and so forth and see if I can find more pieces to fit.

Feel free to comment on this post as I'm interested in hearing other people's opinions on my spiritual jigsaw puzz;e.

Until next time... draft

8/14/10 Dream Ramblings


Today's blog is about one of my dreams I had. I forgot to write it down in detail today when I woke but I remember most of it.

For some reason, I was at a different house. Let me describe the house and then go on to my experiences there.

Looking out, we had a long rectangle of windows that opened like patio doors. There was those curtains that are specifically for patio doors long and in strips and you can move them open and close. The backyard had a deck and in one section a small inground pool to the left and to the right there was a grove of trees. Further back there was a privacy fences all around. I wish I could describe in further detail but this is all I remember. I remember hearing a sound and going to the back doors and looking out. In the grove of trees there were large humanoid figures dancing around the trees and hold onto something while chanting.

In the center of the trees there was a little garden and it had fairies flitting around. I remember being entranced in this dream but a little scared. Like I was seeing something normal people don't see. Then this overwhelming fear of something coming and I was filled dread. The scene around me got dark like night suddenly came. And I remember seeing that the humanoid shapes weren't around the trees anymore.

I feel myself going to the patio door windows and locking them all and drawing the curtains closed and the feeling I had to find this book of something that would stop the oncoming darkness and it was in this house in a secret passageway. My cat Olivia woke me from this dream once then I fell back into the dream and finally my cat came up to me and nudged me awake further. At that point, I got up out of bed and was awake.

I've seen different glimpses of things in my dreams before but this was a new one even for me. What message was I being given in this dream? Perhaps a key to unlocking my gifts and my destiny. A new book idea showing up. I really don't know but I'm intrigued now. I haven't dreamed so vividly and frequently for some time.

Any one else have dreams or out of the ordinary experiences to share??

Peace, love, and balance to all of you who take the time to read my ramblings.

Until next time.....

7/29/10 1st day of Lake Erie Camping Trip

7/29/10 Journey to Lake Erie Islands

Been awhile since I've last wrote in my blog. I felt lost without writing stuff. I need one of those writer block tools to start crazy stories or something. Who knows I may actually work on one of my old manuscripts.

We are taking our family trip to Lake Erie Islands to East Harbor State Park campground. We rented a cabin there and also brought a tent so the girls can have some space.

What randomness shall I write about today. Well let's start with something mundane. We decided to rent a mini van because our car doesn't have any working air conditioning and the kids are packed tight in the back seat. The rental van we got was a 2008 Dodge Caravan. Really nice. Very comfortable ride and drive. Wish I had the money to get this but alas not in the cards for me until Ry finds work again.

Another dealer in town has a pacifica we love but it's almost 12 grand. A bit over our budget right now. My car is on it's last leg. The two front tires are bald and showing the belts and shocks are very bad. So we are down to one car again.. That's fine for now until Ry gets work.

Okay onto the next random subject. When I was browsing online last nigh, I came across a hidden side to one of my long time friends. Not in a bad way. One of my best friends from high school starting posting videos of herself singing. What was interesting I found out that her singing voice is very different from her speaking voice. She sings beautifully with a little more polish she will work wonders. I think she needs to try out for America's Got Talent next year.

What other randomness to write about....hmmm.

Listening to hubby mp3 player in here and got a really good tune playing makes me want to dance.

Beautiful day out today. ..a little hot but will work out as soon as we get to the campground, we will be hitting the beach and taking in an evening swim. My exercise for the day.:)

That's about all for now.....

until next time...
