People always ask...what are your plans for tomorrow?
What do you mean you don't have any?
You must have some idea what you want from tomorrow !
I have ideas, and dreams and things I'd love to do
so yes I plan some things, and hope for things, and build my own dream
of what I want to happen
I want to dream the dream with 'HIM'
I want to build the road to tomorrow together
and explore every new day as it unfolds
as two energies dreaming as one.
UNTIL I FIND HIM
I live each day to the fullest
I enjoy the bountys of my days
I dream wonderful things just for me
and share the days connected to
a wonderful world of people
as I look for 'HIM'
I have fun
I heal the animals and people around me
I dream my revolutionary dream of the world comeing together
I go whereever the wind wants to take me
I shine the light in me on all who pass by
and I look for the light that will instantly
brighten my light 100 x more
if you see him, let me know :)

MY FRIDAY STORY
There is a body of water in Israel that is actually below sea level. Water constantly trickles INTO it, but, because of the law of gravity, nothing can flow OUT of it. Do you know the name of this famous lake? It's called the Dead Sea. It's called this because the mineral deposits have accumulated to such an extent that no living thing could survive in this water. The water is literally dead.
Contrast this to what happens with "living water." When you think of the term living water" the image that comes to mind is a rushing river or bubbling spring that is FLOWING. It's filled with life and movement. It doesn't just "receive," but is also giving" simultaneously. There is LIFE there.
There's a valuable illustration here. Many of us believe that we need to RECEIVE more of something in order to be happy. Whether what we desire is money or love or something else, we think that we need MORE of it in order to be fulfilled. As a result of this, we begin to operate in fear and therefore don't GIVE anything because we're afraid that we won't have enough. The result? Like the Dead Sea, we become lifeless.
When we don't GIVE, we die.
Life is meant to flow. When a pool of anything stops flowing (giving), it becomes stagnant. Stagnant water breeds disease and death. It can't breathe. It can't receive any more. If nothing is flowing OUT, there's no room for anything else to come IN.
The solution? Give.
As you give, you WILL receive. It's a universal law. You see it at work in nature. You see it at work in the economy. You see it at work everywhere, because it's true.
We've somehow been deceived into believing that if we DON'T give, we'll have MORE. Or we're afraid that if we DO give, that we won't have anything left. On one hand, this seems to make sense. But it doesn't work. Because when we don't give, we shut off the flow of what's coming in.
If you truly desire to receive more of something, start giving it away. I know this sounds crazy, but it works. If you want someone to be kind to you, be kind to them. If you want love in your life, love someone. If you want money, give some money away. If you want joy in your life, give joy to someone else.
The universe only responds when we act. Take the first step and watch miracles begin to happen. Too often we're waiting for something to come to us first. Take the initiative. Give and you WILL receive.

Well last night as the wind and rain was pounding my house, my neighbour came over to inform me that a huge piece of aluminum had come loose and was flapping back and forth in the wind.
I put on my coat and went out to look in the almost dark evening.
Squishing though the front lawn, to look up at something I myself could not personally fix !
I can do allot of things,. but climbing up a 40' ladder to the 2nd storey roof to nail back the huge piece of flashing that should be covering the wood, which is now soaked from the rain.
So I have two choices...one, get pissed and yell, and then start...the serious "what am I going to do?" or two smile as say, "What's next? " and view this as something that needs doing..getting upset isn't going to get it fixed..only calmness will get it done right. So now I must walk down that home repair road as a single woman who knows jack squat about it.
and it all depends on how we deal with it.....
We must be willing to step out of ourselves, out of our little scared, defensive identity and into the person we want to be, one who does not look for faults, one who is not temperamental, or jealous, one who does not judge and we must be willing to do this a thousand times a day if necessary.
Every moment we have the choice to be happy....you choose it...and then be it
So this could be a very exciting road...yes an expensive one..and I truly believe money means nothing except what it can buy you here.
Maybe someone to try on the slipper will come from this...you never know....
off to find recommendations.

random thoughts this winter
they do not run together...they are just thoughts...little poems? maybe
LIFE IS AN EXPERIENCE THAT MUST BE LIVED AND SHARED...
NOT JUST AN OBSERVATION.
EITHER GO WITH IT AND ENJOY THE RIDE
OR SIT ON THE SIDE AND NEVER EXPERIENCE THE THRILL
BE TRUE TO YOUR HEART
AND BE NOT AFRIAD TO REACH OUT
I ONCE WALKED AROUND IN CIRCLES,
ALWAYS LOOKING UP INTO THE BLUE SKY
THE VIEW CHANGES, DAY TO DAY
BUT YOU CAN NEVER REALLY KNOW WHERE YOU ARE
YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE!
AS I WAS WATCHING THE CLOUDS ONE DAY
I FELT ELECTRIFIED
AND I DID NOT KNOW WHY
I LOOKED DOWN AND THERE YOU WERE
WAS IT YOUR AURA?
A VIBRATION OR ENERGY WAVE?
THAT SET MY OFF ALONG THIS PATH
WET, COLD LIQUID
FALLS FROM THE SKY
IT TOUCHES THE EARTH
LEAVING EVERYTHING GLISTENING
BRIGHT WARM LIGHT
SHINES BETWEEN THE CLOUDS
REFLECTING IN THE PUDDLES
MAKING THE WORLD SPARKLE
YOUR ENERGY HAS RAINED ON ME
I SPARKLE AND SHINE
THROUGH MY DAY TO DAY WORLD
BECAUSE YOU ARE YOU
words that fall from thought to form
leave my mind and find thier way to paper
here, there and everywhere
like the rain they must fall
like the sun they must shine
and like the moon they pull me
here, there and everywhere
to shine like pieces of rainbows
and reflect the love of life
ACROSS THE WAVES THOUGHTS TRAVEL
ALL THOUGHTS, GOOD AND BAD
AND THEY AFFECT THINGS
ALONG THE WAY
IF YOU COULD SEE THE DAMAGE
EVERY NEGATIVE THOUGHT DID
WOULD YOU STOP?
AND SEEING THE JOY THAT POSITIVE
THOUGHTS LEAVE ON YOUR SOUL
COULD YOU KEEP IT UP? CHOICES....CHOICES....LIFE IS FULL OF THEM
WHY DO WE CHOOSE THESE PATHS?
WHAT DO WE HOPE TO LEARN?
CAN WE TRUELY HELP EACHOTHER, EVEN THOSE WE DO NOT KNOW YET?
FOLLOW A PATH THAT HAS HEART
A JOYOUS PATH
FILL IT WITH LIGHT
AND LOVE AND MOST IMPORTANT
LAUGHTER TO MAKE IT THROUGH
THE MOON WILL ALWAYS SHINE
EVEN IN DARKNESS IT IS THERE
IT'S POWER PULLING AND PUSHING
EBBING AND FLOWING
WE ARE ALL ONE, SOME JUST A LITTLE MORE FRACTURED
SOME SO COMPLETELY LOST THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO DO THIS PATH AGAIN AND AGAIN TO UNDERSTAND
SOME UNDERSTAND WAY TO FAST
DREAMS GIVE US WINGS
ENERGY IS WHAT WE ARE
WHAT WE HAVE
AND WHAT WE SHARE
PIECES OF RAINBOWS
FALLING FROM THE SKY
TOUCHED MY HEART
AND WOUNDED MY EYE
I CRIED A TEAR
OF COLOUR AND WONDER
AND NOW I PONDER ON THEE
COULOURS, RAINBOWS, ENERGY
OF YES AND A CUP OF TEA
morning sun shines brightly
reflecting off the frostcovering my window
and scatters pieces of rainbows
across my eyes

people rush through so much I've got to get here...Ive got to be there and in all that rushing around they forget something, that time is something we made up so we could measure stuff...because we seem to like order to the universe, well I don't I like natural Entropy I don't own a watch, over the course of my life so far I have broken every one , not on purpose but it happens...I will bump into something..broken watch..fall off a skateboard and fly through the air into a pen of buffalo's who just looked at me and went...snurff and went back to their lunch..did they care that my watch was broken, that my ass was raw and bleeding from ripping across the top of the fence? Nope, finally realized that I was not meant to watch time, all the clocks in my house have different times, and the only one I believe most days is my cell phone.Years ago seeing as I didn't believe in time...yes I know it exists but I don't let it have any real power over me I knew that there were people who would want me to know about time and being on time in this society and back then I did partake in allot off illegal substances but still got to work on time, still made all my commitments because my dad taught me something..your word is your truth and don't say things if you don't mean them, or you're not going to do it...better to say No then to have people waiting on you. so I needed to a way to judge the passage of time when in altered states so I started asking people constantly 'do you have the time?' ' what time is it?" and after a couple of weeks I noticed something...every time I ask 'what time is it?' it had been exactly 15 minutes since the last time I thought about it...so now I never need a watch I just have to do math constantly when I don't carry my cell phone...so it's a good thing I'm a math person and that math excites me :)So don't let time rule your life...use it to your advantage play with it bend it, shape it, and for heavens sake don't tell someone you'll be there at this time is you know you are always late or forgetful Know yourself and be true to yourself and give yourself a window of time and with saying that I have a window of time I must go fill....people and animals and society all want my time...good thing I can stop time when I need and start it back up and this is a start up time...see you when I stop time again and come play in my world of wonder peace and watch the Moon she is me I am her and I am always around, you may not see me but I am there shinning my energy somewhere in the universe so if you need a good thought look to the moon and absorb the rays and if you have extra good thoughts send them back at me and I'll make sure if someone else needs them they get them peace people
We are all connected.
sometimes we may not see the connections or not want to feel connected but we are and there really is nothing you can do about it. It is an amazing sensation if you stop and listen to the buzz of life, from a tiny seedling popping out of it's seedpod and pushing it's way through the wet earth to the birth of a blue whale. Like the a spider web all connections do affect one another, it is a delicate balance.
I have walked through my life connected to the natural world and everything in it from a single celled amoeba to the giant redwoods, but always had a problem where people where concerned. The natural world doesn't lie, doesn't pretend, doesn't give you false hopes it is what it is. Humans are a complex life force that have always boggled my mind, strange that I am on and know my own way around my own mind but trying to understand humans has been a road I have been walking for a while now. I know the capacities of my own mind and that has lead me to postulate that others are also capable. We have spent so much of our lives with people telling us how to think, what not to think, and the worst...you must be nuts if you think like that! Thankfully for me I spent enough time in my own thoughts to not be afraid of 'THEM' those people who are so afraid of what they might find if they played around inside their own minds.
I've been thinking about dreams and the fact that we spend almost 1/3 of our lives asleep in a place of magic and wonder...we must explore all that side of reality has to offer...the playground of spirit. In the magic place is we take the time to look around we can see the threads of the web, feel the tugs from people far away, visit all the places our hearts want to go and really have been there..just not with our bodies.
I am looking for my 'One' I have had lots but they weren't the one and so I've gone on or they have left not being able to understand me. Lots of people don't get me...they think I'm fabulous and love me and and overjoyed at having me in their lives but they can not go to the places I'd like them to come with me...and that is alright..they just aren't ready . I know that the one and I will be able to communicate fully without words, they will become redundant in the world we create together, we will know each others energy immediately.
Life is about connecting, helping, sharing, being part of something bigger than ourselves so remember to try and connect just a little bit more each day and on newer levels. Do not be afraid to have a conversation with a relative stranger...what have you go to loose? Yes we need to keep out commonsense around us, and trust our gut feelings because their is negativity and evilness in the world but we can't let that control how we communicate to each other...I believe is we can get everyone to feel connected then there won't be as much negative energy running around mad and angry.
So come on, open up, look people in the eye, take the time, be kind, be grateful and most of all
SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND AND FEEL YOURSELF IN THE WEB
