Sunday Serenity #2

This picture that I took up in Northern Washington at Renault Lake at the national rain forrest, somehow brings me peace. Maybe, it is the good memories that I associate with the picture, as well as the image. Water, somehow brings peace of mind and a calmiing affect to my spirit.

Roy Orbison

1. Name a few of your favorite Roy Orbison songs.
Pretty Woman, Only The lonely, Blue Bayou, and In Dreams

2. Tell us one of your favorite Roy Orbison lyrics.
Orbison Roy In Dreams Lyrics
"In Dreams" by Roy Orbison

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper:
"Go to sleep, everything is alright"

I close my eyes
Then I drift away
Into the magic night
I softly sway
Oh smile and pray
Like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep
To dream my dreams of you

In dreams...I walk with you
In dreams...I talk to you
In dreams...Your mine

All of the time
We're together
In dreams...In dreams

But just before the dawn
I awake and find you gone
I can't help it...I can't help it
If I cry
I remember
That you said goodbye
To end all these things
And I'll be happy in my dreams
Only in dreams
In beautiful dreams

3. How cool did Roy look in those dark glasses?
yes, he looked awesome.

Questions To Ponder

How would you go about purifying your own soul?
I would spend a few days in quiet thought and contemplation, drinking plenty of water, and be in my own thoughts.

If you were in a "Noah" situation, which animals would you take with you? Which would you leave behind?
I think the only animals I would not take with me would be the poisonous snakes and spiders.

Where would you go if you wanted to spend a week alone without contact with civilization?
My dream would be on a quiet island near the beach.

Sunday Serenity #1

My sister Joy started a Meme called the Sunday Serenity. I thought, I would participate. I have always liked this poem. Not only does it invoke peace for me. It gives inspiration and advice to follow on your life's journey, though the nay sayers and backbiters will stand in your way.
The Journey:
By Mary Oliver

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice--
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
"Mend my life!"
each voice cried.
But you didn't stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do--
determined to save
the only life you could save.

Week of April 15: 3 Wishes
If you had 3 wishes granted what would you wish for?

till next time...

If I had three wishes, man, oh man. My first wish would be to have as much money as Oprah, so I could do whatever I wanted, which would be, to help family, get myself set up, and give some to charity. My second wish would be to weigh 135 pounds and be healthy. My third wish would be to have this court battle that I am in overwith and done, so I can move on.

Sunday 7

Sunday 7:
I saw someone have the Sunday seven on her page, but there was no link to the host or place to get the link listed on her site. So, I do like the concept of naming the blessing of the week, every Sunday, that I am going to incorporate it. Though, I will have to admit that sometimes I am going to have a hard time finding seven blessing for a week and also I might forget to post my Sunday 7. Well, here are my 7 blessings for this week.
1) My friend Monte is a blessing, letting me borrow movies, finding me a good microwave and phone at a garage sale this weekend. And of course, his humor and wit.

2) My sister Joy, who, even though, in the dumps after the loss of some things in her life, still chats with me on MSN and we can boo whoo together and still laugh and give helpful advice to each other.

3) My warm bed at night, with pillows, blankets, and sheets that keep me warm and cozy.

4) My apartment inspection going well and the humor that my manager and repair guy had that day.

5) My negative doubts that happen that give me a chance to grow and develop, as a person.

6) Having divine inspiration in the smalls things in life, my plants, movies, music, sisters, brothers, friends, and even strangers, that let you know that you really don’t have it so bad after all.

7) I am a blessing to me.

Earth Day

Tomorrow is earth day, it has been on my mind since I watched Oprah yesterday and learned some helpful hints, though some of the suggestions were expensive. The environment is important, everything on the Earth depends on each other to live. Balance is the key, I do believe that, wholeheartedly. There are some things we can do, and there are some things that seem radical to the extreme. My mom recycles, a lot. She saves everything possible, jars, plastics, and reuses them, I can see the value in doing that. I do use the butter containers, and yogurt containers as storage containers, (something my mom taught me), why waste the plastic and buy expensive containers, when you are getting two uses out of one product. I have a patio, and I want to so badly start a patio garden. I am in the process of moving, and that is one of the requirements for my new place. I want to be able to grow tomato’s, a mesculan mix of greens, herbs, and pretty flowers on the patio. I would also love to feed the birds too. I have not thought about the canvas bag idea for grocery shopping, that is something I am considering doing. It is not expensive to buy a bag that is big enough for groceries and that will help save on paper products and therefore save some trees. Any tips on container gardening would be very much appreciated by me, since I am a novice.

Green For Earth Day!

Your Life is 52% Green

You're life is pretty green - and you know a lot about how to live an eco friendly life.

So congratulate yourself for being good to the earth. And maybe think about implementing some of the ideas from this quiz!

Thirteen Movies I Watched This Week YOUR NAME

1…. Final Destination I enjoyed this frightening movie. Though I liked two a lot better.
2. Final Destination Two: I enjoyed this final destination better than the first one.
3. Devils' Advocate Al Pacino plays an excellent devil and of course Kneau Reeves does an awesome acting job in this one too.
4. Dark Crystal This one started off slow, but it is still a classic that I remembered watching as a kid.
5. Cruel Intentions I enjoyed Reese Witherspoon in this one, I didn't know this was the movie she met her husband Ryan Phillippine in.
6. Strange Days This indeed was a strange movie, about a new drug that is out there. I enjoyed it though. I didn't know that Juliette Lewis could sing so well.
7. Fight Club Wow, this movie has a twist, doesn't it?
8. Hackers This movie is about old school computers,it still was well worth the watch.
9. How The Grinch Stole Christmas Jim Carey play an excellent Grinch. I love Jim Carey as an actor and I'd like to see more of his movies.
10. The Incredibles I like this Disney movie. It had great action and a cool story line.
11. Metalopolis this is a cartoon tv show about a metal band, it reminds me a lot like Spinal Tap, I couldn't find a link to it on the net. My friend Monte recommended it. I enjoyed it and I had numerous laughs.
12. Spiderman I was not that impressed with this movie. I haven't seen the other ones yet, maybe those will be better.
13. Manchurian Candidate This movie made me think a lot about what our government and the people in office are capable of.

Autism Warning Signs.

Oprah recently aired a segment about Autism. I wrote a blog about it just recently. This month is national autism awareness month, and I have a good friend, whose son has autism. There are some warning signs and I thought I'd share them with you all.


I enjoy herbs. They can be used for many different purposes. Natural things that come from the earth give us balance and good health.
It is a family trait, my sister Vickie and I talk about it a lot. We both have a green thumb. I have always loved the smell of sage and the green color. There are many different varieties available. You don't have to just use it for stuffing. It is good on fish, salads, and even sage tea is good. I have been wanting to grow some of my own herbs.

Drivers Use Your Car For Something Other Than A Battering Ram

My friends brother got hit by a car today. Amber has been a friend of mine since we were both In 8th grade and her entire family is awesome. Gary was crossing the street, in a cross walk, and this car hit him. I don’t understand how people can drive so carelessly. I am a driver, I keep my eyes on the road and everything that is around me. You never know what is going to come before you, especially when you come to a cross walk and you are stopped at a light. Your vehicle is a dangerous weapon, it isn’t only used for transportation and hauling you and the kids around everywhere, it is also deadly and dangerous. I wish that people would have enough sense to be thoughtful and considerate and not be in a hurry to get to their destination, that they forget common curtsey of others around them. Get off the phone, stop putting makeup on in the mirror while driving, stop faxing, texting, and engaging in other things besides paying attention to what you are maneuvering around. There are others in this world besides you. I’m just frustrated by the lack of consideration. Please, I am asking everyone, be more aware of things around you, especially when you are driving. And remember the rule in all hand books, pedestrians have the right of way.

Movie Marathon

I borrowed some movies from my friend Monte and so the last three nights, I’ve been having a movie marathon. The first movie I watched, “Cruel Intentions” starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon, and Ryan Phillippe. Monte recommended this movie. I see why he liked it. It is intriguing, it is a different type of love story, and though the end was sad, it was well worth the watch.
“Final Destination” starring Devon Sawa and Ali Larter is a thriller. The whole movie was a jaw dropping, make you think, and makes you question so many things about your own mortality.
“Final Destination 2” is just as good as the first one.
“The Dark Crystal” a Jim Henson production, the creator of the Muppets brought back some memories for me tonight. It is simple, but it has a lot of heart and soul in it.

Thursday, April 05, 2007


I have always liked the Desirada, I first encountered it reading Simple Abundance that my big sister Joy gave to me.

April Is For Autism

This banner was created by Precious Jewel Graphics

This month is autism awareness month. The reason I am bringing this up, is because my dear, sweet friend Amber. Her little boy Cullen has autism, I am not positive what form. He isn’t as bad as some, but it still affects him and her family. There are many different names for autism, but they are all linked. There is Asperger Syndrome, PDD NOS, Autism, Rett Syndrome, and Childhood Disintrigrative Disorder, Cullen has one of them. He is getting the help he needs, and he is still a bright loving boy, despite his disability. Just because he has a disability, doesn't mean he doesn't deserve the same care and respect that so many other children need. There is a medical news site that provides some good information. There is also a myspace page called autimoms where you can also get a ton of information. We all need to be aware, compassionate, patient, and loving towards everyone with a disability, that they cannot help but to have. It doesn't mean they are dumb, incapable, or any of the phobias that people who have never dealt with people with disabilities or who don't suffer from one do not understand. Families who have children deserve our patient, love, understanding, and compassion, and not to be chastise, condemned, or ridicule because of it. If anything, I'd wish for more understanding and empathy for everyone involved. They are capable of many things and they also don't need to be put aside or pushed away either. Maybe, because I have seen many of my family members, though they do not suffer from autism, they do have blindness, and other disabilities that they were born and can't help to have. They are strong independent women and men. My mom has RP, and she has been in advocacy for many years. She didn't let it cripple her or stop her from living a life that she wanted and deserved to have. She still gardens, walks, cooks, cleans, and though her age is more of a problem, than her eyesight, she is still strong, independent and fighting for independence for others who are disabled. I greatly admire her for that. Maybe, that is why I feel strongly for others who are dealing with loss, but who have found the strength, wisdom, and courage to move on and do what they must to be who they truly are inside. Isn't that after all, what really matters?

Yes, I Admit, I Love Movies

SUPPOSEDLY if you've seen over 85 movies, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. There are 239 movies on this list. Copy this list mail, go to your own facebook account, paste this as a note.

Dying To Be Dark

I decided today to dye my hair, a mocha ash brown was my palette of choice. While shopping at the store with my sister in law and the family, while they were looking at automotive parts, I was in the hygiene area picking up some things. I passed the hair products, um, I need a change, so I went for color. Three years ago, an ex-friend of mine dyed my hair this funky red, that just looked absolutely horrible on me, so I went for the dark brown. That red still had not completely gone out of my hair, almost three years later. I love it, it put me back to where I was younger and carefree about life and I had many possibilties, not that I don't now. It was a challenge, since putting the hair color on is a chore in itself, and figuring out how long to leave it in and what is next, but I am enjoying my new look and the way I am feeling about me. Now I feel more confident in making the other necessary changes in my life now. I have not bitten my nails in a month, which was a hardship to beat, but hey, I did it. Now, I have nails. Things are a changing and I like it.

My Psyche

I was surprise how accurate this was.

Your Psyche is Blue

You are deeply emotional and very connected to everything (and everyone) around you.

By simply understanding other people, you are able to help them heal and let go.

While you are a very deep and thoughtful person, you do have a very silly, superficial side.

When you are too blue: the weight of the world's problems hangs over you

When you don't have enough blue: you lack perspective and understanding
