29 Oct 2016 Dream about men in canoes, bead meditations, cell phone photography (like multi-verse concept), Interpol (Steam Punk genre Pioneer to the Falls), Corpse Bride (Tim Burton film with beautiful music) and Dr. Strange on Jimmy Kimmel (birthday party)

Good morning to you, it’s 5:21 am on this Saturday morning as I start to write to you.  I’m feeling so much more rested than I have in a couple of days…..I actually remembered a dream!

It was very short.  It was about seeing men, white men, preparing for a journey on the water.  I remember one yelling orders at the others and they were all moving very quickly.  The journey was to begin not in speed boats but in canoes.  That’s all I remember but it’s very symbolic to our current moment isn’t it?  Perhaps the fastest course is not always the best when preparing for a journey.

For me personally, I’ve been really thinking about wanting to travel and not just to Burleson lol.  I have been imagining traveling everywhere I’ve ever wanted to go with Kyle BUT like the men in the dream, we will start our travels in a “canoe” or gentle, measured fashion….ease into the idea.  We are planning on traveling to my childhood home in Sioux Falls South Dakota for Thanksgiving (one of absolute favorite holidays – even more than Christmas) and this will be a 8-900 mile trip.  This will be the first long trip away from our home here in Alvarado since probably the last time I was home which was in 2005?!  I honestly can’t remember traveling more than a few miles from here for years now.  Yeah, it’s been a long time!  It’s like I got here to Texas and fell into a “safe” abyss and got comfortable in there.   We will start with this holiday visit and build up my stamina for future travels….we will start with a canoe before the speed boat.

Pioneer to the Falls

(I found this group when I started to be interested in the Steam Punk Genre)

28 Sept 2015 - my costume for this year will be the same....

28 Sept 2015 – my costume for this year will be the same….

Show me the dirt pile and I will pray that the soul can take
Three stowaways
Vanish with no guile and I will not pay, but the soul can wait
The soul can wait

Well, it is still pretty what with all these leaks
We’ll be fine
We’ll be fine

But if it’s still pretty what with all these leaks
Will we find, oh
And supervise

Show me the dirt pile and I will pray that the soul can take
Three stowaways
And you vanish with no guile and I will not pay, but the soul can wait
I felt you so much today

Oh no, you try
You fly straight into my heart
You fly straight into my heart
Girl, I know you try
You fly straight into my heart
You fly straight into my heart
But here comes the fall

So much for make-believe and not so
So much for dreams we see but not prepared to know
Your heart makes me feel, your heart makes me moan
For always and ever I’ll never let go
Always concealed, safe and inside, alive!

Show me the dirt pile and I will pray that the soul can take
Three stowaways
In a passion it broke; I pull the black from the gray, but the soul can wait
I felt you so much today

This morning when I let the dogs out, attached to our back door was this gentle visitor!

29 Oct 2016 - now this huge visitor is very symbolic too....these creatures move very slowly and sometimes so slowly they don't survive. I can remember finding one of these in a much smaller size dead on our garage door because they didn't move before the heat of the day.

I’m learning to use my new phone camera and I am not used to pushing a button and having an instant photo taken….here comes the multi-verse theory that came to me about that.  It’s because of what I’ve been having to do with these multiple images after I take them.  I have to look at each image and examine them for quality and choose the best version of the image…..delete the rest if I want to.  There is no reason to keep the other versions of the same image!  Could this be the way it is with “multiple dimensions” or “multiple versions of ourselves?”  It the cycle of life a refinement, discernment process to create the “best image” or “best version” of someone or something – large scale like a planet, small scale like a slug or life forms so small they are not visible to the naked eye?

Definitely an interesting “train of thought” right?  Fun!

I wanted to close with music Kyle and I heard last night while watching one of our favorite films (not just for Halloween) from the past 11 years (that’s how old the film is now!) Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride.

The solo:

The Duet:

*Kyle told me this morning Dr. Strange is at 93% “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes……of course it was going to be amazing!

  1. We just embarked on our journey as philanthropists, Jackie! My sweet husband and I have been wanting to make a difference and support causes we believe in; however, we’ve felt stymied by limited financial resources. As our situation has improved, we budgeted a small monthly amount, spread among what we believe are the neediest causes, and signed up for automatic monthly donations. So, we, too, are starting in metaphoric canoes! Philanthropists. We do like the sound of that! lol 😉 xoM

    • After reading your comment, you can’t see me, but I’m smiling from ear to ear! “Grinning like an idiot” but I don’t think I’m an idiot so that doesn’t work LOL. For Christmas we are starting to ask our families to donate to their favorite charities on our behalf in lieu of sending us more stuff. We in turn have our favorite folks that need help like our local animal shelter. They need food, collars, leashes and basic things that for some reason they aren’t getting supplies of or any sustainable financial support to do so. We also like our PBS folks (KERA), Music and Memory and Meals on Wheels for examples. Thank you for helping to make a difference in our shared world (and your hubby of course!). Much love to you M.
