4 June 2016 Finding stillness in times of crisis, Farewell to Muhammed Ali, Arizona meteor, Dune House of Corrino quotes

Hi all, how are you doing today?  I’m doing alright I guess….kind of mopey this morning LOL.  Kyle didn’t make us coffee this morning…whine…(first world problems) so Peppermint tea it is!  Need a perk-me-up!  It’s been raining for what seems FOREVER and it’s muggy , buggy and for me allergy druggy (like that?  3 “uggy’s in a row?!).   My prayers to all near the Texas Brazos River and any other parts of world who are dealing with the consequences of the imbalance of the elements right now.  Focus on what you can control and that is your behavior and how you feel afterwards about what you decide to do and what others have done to you!    

May be the colors of this beautiful quilt my friend at the My Beautiful Things Blog (https://mybeautfulthings.com/2016/06/03/krowji-the-pandora-inn-and-mylor/) found will inspire a respite from the floods:

Yesterday afternoon it was raining again and I decided to go outside for some “immersion therapy” and something came to me as I was out there, towel over my head….”being still doesn’t mean the storm, it means being still within yourself!”  I looked at my hands, the leaves of our pecan tree and the other objects around me and that made so much sense!  The raindrops were falling and washing over my hands but my hands were there to catch them as they fell.

 

Did you see that Muhammed Ali the legendary man and American boxer died last night?  Only 74 but you know what?  I’m happy for him….he’s finally free of the prison his body had become for so many years.  My condolences to his family, friends and his fans today.   He can truly float like a butterfly….the next birthday.   Death isn’t the end, it’s a “rebirthday.”

“Muhammad Ali, the silver-tongued boxer and civil rights champion who famously proclaimed himself “The Greatest” and then spent a lifetime living up to the billing, is dead.

Ali died Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital, where he had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications, a family spokesman confirmed to NBC News. He was 74.”

Isn’t it interesting that the day before, Thursday,  a meteorite exploded over the skies in that area?!  Only fitting he should out of this world with such an event – a big bang!

“For a brief moment early Thursday, the Arizona night sky lit up like it was day. Just before 4 a.m., a massive fireball meteor exploded in the sky. The space rock raced through our atmosphere at over 40,000 mph, NASA estimates, and the flash was 10 times brighter than a full moon.

It was the brightest meteor event ever observed by NASA’s All Sky Fireball Network, says Bill Cooke, a meteor expert at NASA.”

I wanted to share these 3 messages of wisdom from The House of Corrino (new Dune series) book I’m reading by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, I think they might resonate with you:

 

If you haven’t heard or read it today – let me be the first – I LOVE YOU!
