Karen sent a message that caught my imagination . . .

It’s as if the rug we have been sitting on all these years is being pulled out from under us, and layers upon layers of dust and dirt are being shaken out all over the place.
Now it is up to us—all of us who are on a spiritual path—to be the ones to make the connection to the Light in spite of the darkness, to be the lighthouse for others, to grow our consciousness and give more care to the people around us. 

The spiritual light we create through our kindnesses and through the human dignity we extend to others will be the light that guides our fellow beings forward on their path.

(Thank You, Karen Berg)

I was asked what could happen in an hour
which caused me to remember
an episode of

(factoring in commercials)

Here is a pinwheel of the Ponderosa
which did not take an hour
looks spiffy
and reminds me 
of good things

Having Fun!

I stayed home today.
The puppies are happy.  And, when i post this, we'll go for a walk.  When all three of us walk together, i think we resemble a circus because Mr. Franklin Bumble is small and Baby Mia is Very Tall . . i suspect some people Think i am walking a polar bear when they see her . . . 
I talk out loud to them all along our way
They are good to put up with me.

I am taking several classes.
I got to create a "diptych" yesterday.
Most of my classmates do their work with digital devices.
How funny to realize I am considered "old school"
because I use this computer.
create something material
then, i walk away and enjoy my life.

sigh . . oh well.
I was considered a "throw-back" 
because I enjoyed needle work
("sticks and string" to create art)

and called a "throw-away"
when i was a kid
(nope, not latchkey, which is sad
"throw away" - which is an adventure.)

walk it is
woof woof
love & love,

7,378,025,250 and rapidly counting . . .

i used to check the world population clock often
got out of the habit
i have No Idea Why i decided to look today

The page offers a lot more information that it used to
and is super interesting

The number is rising so fast
I simply want to imagine sitting
quietly on a bench in the garden

what a large family we are.
love & love,
