Warning ##|\!

McDonalds 5.31.17I have stopped listening to the audio recording of Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosserr I simply could not listen to another CD.  Not because it was awful, the truth is, it is an interesting and well researched book/CD. “Part investigative journalism, part social criticism,” it was a New York Times bestseller and has been critically acclaimed.

On the back cover, it says ” a fine piece of muckraking, alarming without being alarmist”..  my sensibilities just couldn’t take anymore.. I got up to CD 5 and couldn’t listen to anymore.  “the dark side of the all American meal”  The laws in Canada are not the same as the USA, never-the-less…   There is a lot of common sense, and ah ha  moments. If you are not aware of this book, or this author,  then if you are  interested in something different.. please check it out.  I got mine at the public library, I thought it was something else, I really didn’t peruse it… I just thought it was a quick and easy…. NOT!

The news these days has been so repetitive, bleak and often shake your head, sad.. that I thought it would be a change.. NOT!

Time to find a feel good holiday movie to watch, or simply listen to music, if I thought I could go to sleep, wake up and the world would be different… nah.. that is wishful thinking…

Time to find a quiet world, where the air is clear, thoughts are able to chill, and time for a while, floats in a happy space.

halloween

diabetic fund rasier_001

Hey, how was your day?  Decided to drop in to the Diabetes Fund raiser in Second Life. It is a good cause, of course since I was there, I felt I should look around.  Found myself a fun costume.

I wasn’t ready to  do a lot, change worry about hair style etc. so you can see, I chose accordingly, the virtual world, is no different from our day-to-day, we still have to deal with choices.

My ribs are showing.  You can’t see how hard I had to resist having one of the special Halloween cupcakes I got for hubby.  LOL it was hard, but knowing I had just committed to not having dessert for a month, and I mean JUST….  I settled for the plastic spiders on the icing.

I actually took up needle and thread today, instead of applying more bond, or glue to the fabric piece I was working on.  I sewed the part of the roof that had not bonded properly to the background material

Now I’m at a dance with some fab music happening while I am busy sharing time with you.  Multi-tasking at its best.  You can see my avatar is dancing behind Nick, he and his wife Mel are dressed in identical outfits.   They are rather clever.  The party is just getting underway.  Will go and be social.  Meanwhile, we are ending October, tomorrow we start into a very busy month… some time soon we hope to here when the operations will be. I do know that we already have a lot of medical appointments set up for November.

Please understand if I am not as regular with my posts…. I will do my best, because sharing time with you all, is good for me.  Over the years, you have all inspired me at some time or another.  I love the connection we share.  You are all the best!!!

and was seen sitting on a pumpkin in someone’s store

an angel takes flight (Georgina)

9.25 bye Georgina_003

My sister in law was a strong resourceful woman, she battled with medical problems what seems like forever.  Yet she raised her family, say her children marry, and then the blessing of grandchildren.   Had she stayed around, she and my brother in law would have celebrated I believe their 49th. anniversary.

9.25 bye Georgina_001

The last few years saw her visiting the train station, more than I’m sure she wanted to, but an intelligent woman, she knew that a journey was soon to come. I never failed to marvel at her sense of “life” no matter her physical limitations, she always had an aura of vibrancy and life the emanated  from her.  Everyone who met her, dealt with her, enjoyed her presence. Even in the greatest discomfort, she made you feel welcome by her side.  A “true lady”, genteel, she will be greatly missed.

She was a ray of sunlight that shone just a tad brighter than most.

9.25.georgie_008.png

The last few days, we saw the skies cloud over, we felt the murmur and call of the Universe.

9.25.georgie_010

One night the stars shone extra brightly, the next morning, we knew, she had spread her wings and flown home where she will shine down on us from up above.

The sunbeams that dance across the lakes, and caress the changing seasons, will always be a bit of Georgina, reminding us, she is not far away,  Her legacy and faith in “life” will always BE.

wandering

9.25 SL_001

sometimes,

we wander to the right

but get tempted to venture

to the left

9.25 SL_006

sometimes

we wander right into the fire

9.25 SL_010.png

where there is nothing to do

but close our eyes

nice and tight

9.25 SL_008.png

till our thoughts

wander back into the light

9.25 SL_015

only we ourselves can define our reality

PL Precept #11  Always be with God

wherever you wander,

you are NEVER alone

Travel safe my friend – goodbye

goodbye Lizzie 9.18.17_008.pngLizzie was an artist with a thirst to create, not just anything, everything she did was alive and vivid, just like her. Her creativity knew no bounds.  When she first was told she had cancer, she said, OK, let’s deal with this.. and did what she needed to do, she beat the odds.  Once, twice, the little vixen fought her way to live another day.

goodbye Lizzie 9.18.17_005

This last fight, she grew weary. She laid down her brush,  with the quiet dignity of the true diva she was, she spread her wings and took flight beyond the heavens into the “night”..

goodbye Lizzie 9.18.17_009

We will miss you Liz, your energy and spirit,  a diva  warrior like no other,  will forever glow in our hearts.  Rest in peace.
