Still Awake!

Just thought I would let you know that I am still awake and I should have just turned the computer!!!!! I hate typing on this silly phone, ok I got to stare aimlessly at the dark walls (I got sick of staring at the celling)

Must find sleep must work in AM!

I have to work in the morning and like normal I can't sleep so I am deleting pictures on my phone lying here in bed. I want to turn the computer on am finnish my post but then I will never get to sleep at all. This is the reason I prefer to work nights!!

Like me bummer sticker (well window sticker)? Its one of those you either get or you don't. Lol. Who gets it, do you?

I am hungry too. Arg I need to sleep not type mindless rambling that no one cares about on this teeny tiny phone keypad. Ok I am gonna stop rambling and try to sleep. lol no really that was not a joke, no seriously I am. Trying anyway!

Apology

Sorry I have not posted anything much but I had to work on my day off and have been called in early and asked to work late on the other days this week.  Not complaining at all I need that dreaded stuff we worship called money to pay my rent and pay for my car so its all good.  But I really wanted to finish my post on Zen, Goddesses and life in general, hope I can get back in the "zone" I was in when I started it!


But on a better note I got my Hippie Hat back after a year without it!!!  Very happy!!!  Ok OK  enough about the hat!


probably won't get much posted until sunday - sorry!

If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it's to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel.

Aerosmith: Seasons of Wither

As the Seasons of Nature and our life change this Mabon I thought this was a good video for today!


(they sing a short song first called Sometimes it fades into Seasons of Wither and this is the best preformance I have seen them do of this beautiful song)

This song always comforts me for whatever reason??

I was working on a big long very interesting post on beliefs and god and goddesses and all that but I just got called in to work again so this is all you get for now - I will try to finish it tonight when I get out of work!

Lessons from Jim

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that's bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they're afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they're wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you're letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”

Yummy Goodness!

Finally got my pie in the oven!!  Yummy I will be eating homemade fresh picked apple pie at about 2am.  LOL


Will be making homemade whipped cream first!!!


I am starving right now but don't know what I want to eat - well mainly cause I don't feel like cooking anything else.


So when in doubt of what to eat forget about eating you must not really be hungry - do some Yoga!

Procrastination!

The word for today is Procrastination!

I still can"t manage to get my ass moving and I know its cause I was supposed to be off today.  Less than an hour before I have to be at work and no yoga or anything else yet.

PROCRASTINATION is making me LATE!

Where did this damn cup of coffee come from!!!!

So I am drinking my coffee, I add a bit more to heat it up, I start washing my dishes, then in dawns on me my coffee is over there by the computer - where the hell did this coffee come from?????   ok still trying to figure out that one, dumped it out.

And why is there a woman trying to beat the world record for rubbing hot chillies in her eyes on my TV (BBC one of Gordon Ramseys shows) and more importantly WHY is there a world record for rubbing chillies into your eyes?  Who does thinks .. hmmmmm  I need my 15 minutes of fame I think I will rub hot peppers in my eyes!

Apples are peeled for making the pie when I get home from work, have to make a Mabon Apple Pie!!!

Why do I have so much to write and say today and no time to write any of it!  Just time to ramble!

So where did that coffee come from?

No Exploring today - Plans Changed!!!! Bummer

video
Well I did have today off.  I just got called in so no exploring where I live.  This video is from the last time I got to explore!  Don't know what happened to the sound?  And nice finger aye?

I have a headache from hell not too happy about going to work but hell I really like my job and I need the money so off to work I go.  I need to get some more coffee in me and get to my yoga done.  I was gonna make an apple pie and I only have 2 hours, but I think I will peel the apples and have them ready and make the pie when I get out tonight.  Arg I got to do so much before work now!  oh well my intent was to write some interesting stuff today - no time now damn!!!!  

Well I will try when I get home.


Lessons from Steven


"Every life has a measure of sorrow, and sometimes this is what awakens us." 

— Steven Tyler


Happy Mabon!

"Lady,
In swirling cloak of crimson,
of burnt orange and saffron,
You ride the winds of morning.
The scent of burning leaves fills the air;
the Second Harvest draws near.
Solitary once again You embody balance -
You are an archetype of the Self -
consummate, remote.
I long to follow as You seek the
formless wilderness
with never a thought to the cost.
You are the bright flame of morning,
impelling and unrestrained.
Bless me with Your passion."
-  Galen Gillotte
------------------------------------------------------------

"Leaves fall,the days grow cold.
The Goddess pulls her mantle of Earth around Her
as You, O Great Sun God, sail toward the West
to the land of eternal enchantment,
wrapped in the coolness of night.
Fruits ripen,seeds drip,
the hours of day and night are balanced."
-------------------------------------------------------------------

"O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stained
With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof, there thou may'st rest,
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe;
And all the daughters of the year shall dance,
Sing now the lusty song of fruits and flowers. "
-   William Blake
-----------------------------------------------------------------

"The Wheel turns on - 'tis Mabon-tide.
Dawn and dusk abreast now ride
darkness, brightness, calm and storms.
The hand that holds the scythe transforms.
I vow this wisdom shall be my own:
poise will let my power be known.
From balance the Wheel now turns toward the deep.
Through Winter, by vow and faith, I'll keep."
Ashleen O'Gaea
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Enjoy this the second harvest of that which you have sewn throughout the year!
Prepare and nurture the same for the third and final harvest in October.
Always remember we do reap all that we sow.
We are responsible for ALL that we sow!
Daizi

Good Morning - well my morning anyway!


Morning around here is Coffee, computer, Cat Stevens (today, it was Kate Bush yesterday), Postcards and Yoga.

And my damn coffee is cold, I am soooo procrastinating this morning.  I need to write my postcards to my aunt, it makes her very happy to get a few postcards everyday from me and I only got one sent last week cause I was moving all my stuff around now I have to make up for it!!  I don't feel like it right now!

I have to leave for work in an hour and a half, I have not even done my Yoga for the morning!  Bad Me!  Got to go get some hot coffee!

Need to check out The Unknown Death Crones (not unknown to me  LOL- luv ya Nix) blog since I posted a reply on there bitching about the organization of Wicca might have started a witch war, oops!  And why does everyone ASSUME you are Wiccan if you believe/worship a Goddess/Moon, that has always bothered me.  I am not Wiccan, I do agree with many of their beliefs but not all, and I have issues with the duality and that is a huge part of Wiccan so don't call me Wiccan, please!!  ARG - get off soapbox its to early for this!  ok back to hot coffee and Yoga - this is not the best combination either.  I think I will finish this discussion later tonight when I get out of work!

Ok rambled on enough  now I have to get going running very late this morning!

Annabel Lee - Edgar Allen Poe poem Sung by Stevie Nicks!!!


Damn was looking for my favorite Edgar Allen Poe poem and found this!!
Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!

Kate Bush - Moments Of Pleasure

Stop all that swirling your making me seasick!
Hmmmm ... Moments of Pleasure.....What are some of mine?

The purr of a cat snuggled up with you
The smell of the fresh rain
Dancing under the Full Moon
The touch of a loving man as he reaches for your hand
Swimming in the ocean at night
The smile of the Full Moon as she looks down on you
Coming home
Waffles/Pancakes with real maple syrup
Cat Stevens in the morning with a good cup of coffee
Apple picking
Ferret whiskers tickling your nose
Peanut Butter & Fluff sandwiches (ok admittedly I am eating one right now)
A good long kiss in the pouring rain!!
Bonfires (and marshmellows)
The smell of a fresh Yule/christmas tree
Having all your bills paid & having enough extra to buy a book or cd after putting some in savings!
The smell of the heat when it first comes on
The smell of a house heated by a fireplace
Actually getting something done on my day off
The sun popping through the clouds on a cloudy day
The smell of the ocean
Waterfalls
Riding a horse
Morning coffee with someone you love
Finding something you thought was lost forever
Feeling a past moment from long ago
Feeling Zen
Finding an old friend
Maple Sugar cotton candy
Where ever it is that the scent of Patchouli oil sends me
That warm feeling -  you know the one
The first time you get to open the windows after winter
The first snowfall
Playing in the snow
Listening to the song "The Crystal Ship"
Any time I get to spend with my Uncle Noel
Remembering Joe's sock obsession
Creating Art
Watching the leaves change
Seeing a bear walk into the woods
Sitting by a river
Listening to someone from Southie talk (south Boston)
Sitting down by the Mummies in the MFA
Realizing you might not be happy but you ARE content
Listening to your mothers voice saved on the answering machine
The smells of Autumn

Well I guess thats enough for now  ;-)

So tell me some of yours!!!!!
