Good morning to you! It’s about 10:58 am on this chilly Sunday morning as I write to you from here in North Texas. I hope this finds you well in mind, body and spirit as you visit here.
This morning, even though it’s really cold, I had to go out! The sky was clear and the sun calling out to me so of course I had to answer the call! It was weird when I went out. I looked off in the distance and as if synchronized, like 3 or 4 trail leaving planes rose in the sky together! Only one of them really left a long trail. I paid them no mind and let my imagination go a bit. I built myself a sort of crystal and metal energy chamber lol. It’s hard to tell by the pictures, but I used the things I have available to me to include crystals and my orgonite. I took off my shoes and socks and initially just moved about to music in this space and then when I got tired grabbed a chair and just basked in the sun. I could feel a definite difference in the energy between in and out of the little “chamber” I made. What I was thinking about was the orgone accumulator chambers Dr. Wilhelm Reich created. Sometimes it’s fun to be the child that lives largely inside of me and let her play!
This mornings “extraordinary” is a person; English actor David Morrissey. We were watching the 2008 Dr. Who Christmas Special called “The Next Doctor” and he starred alongside David Tennant. What a delightful character! I found myself wishing he would be either a Doctor or wishing he and David Tennant could work together! I think it would be fun to have a Doctor with a male companion for a change and these two would be great. The whole time I watched David, I kept thinking he reminded me of Elvis Presley too lol. I couldn’t find anything in his bio’s that says he actually portrayed Elvis but he sure could.

David Mark Morrissey (born 21 June 1964) is an English actor, director, producer and screenwriter. At the age of 18, he was cast in the television series One Summer (1983). After making One Summer, Morrissey attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, then acted with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre for four years.
Throughout the 1990s, Morrissey often portrayed policemen and soldiers, though he took other roles such as Bradley Headstone in Our Mutual Friend (1998) and Christopher Finzi in Hilary and Jackie (1998). More film parts followed, including roles in Some Voices (2000) and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (2001), before he played the critically acclaimed roles of Stephen Collins in State of Play (2003) and Gordon Brown in The Deal (2003). The former earned him a Best Actor nomination at the British Academy Television Awards and the latter won him a Best Actor award from the Royal Television Society. In the years following those films, he had roles in Sense and Sensibility (2008), Red Riding (2009), Nowhere Boy (2009) and Centurion (2010) and produced and starred in the crime drama Thorne (2010).
Morrissey returned to the stage in 2008 for a run of Neil LaBute‘s In a Dark Dark House and played the title role in the Liverpool Everyman‘s production of Macbeth in 2011. He then starred in the British crime film Blitz, playing a morally dubious reporter in contact with the eponymous cop killer. The following year, he portrayed the Governor in AMC television series The Walking Dead as a series regular in the third and fourth seasons and the fifth season in a guest role. The British Film Institute describes Morrissey as being considered “one of the most versatile English actors of his generation”, and he is noted for his meticulous preparation for and research into the roles he plays.
Morrissey has directed short films and the television dramas Sweet Revenge (2001) and Passer By (2004). His feature debut, Don’t Worry About Me, premiered at the 2009 London Film Festival and was broadcast on BBC television in March 2010.
In December 2008, he appeared alongside his Blackpool co-star David Tennant in “The Next Doctor“, the 2008 Christmas special of Doctor Who, playing Jackson Lake, a man who believes he is the Doctor after his mind is affected by alien technology. Morrissey had been asked to appear in the series before but had to turn down the offers due to other commitments. He approached the character like any other dramatic part, and was influenced in his performance by previous Doctor actors William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker. Secrecy surrounded the exact details of Morrissey’s role in the episode; until the day of broadcast his character was referred to only as “the other Doctor”. This prompted media speculation that Morrissey would be taking over the lead role after Tennant quit, and in October 2008 he was reported as a favourite of bookmakers. He was pleased that the episode was a “decoy” for the truth that actor Matt Smith had actually been chosen for the part of the Eleventh Doctor. In September 2009, he told entertainment website Digital Spy that he would gladly return to the show if asked.

I was excited to see posts on JRM’s fan pages on Facebook in regards to the role he is taking on in History Channel Vikings! Kyle and I are working through Season 3 on Amazon Prime at the moment as we don’t have cable. Even with the violence that goes on in this show, for some reason I really enjoy it. I think a lot of it has to do with the amazing writing, acting and location. Some like Game of Thrones, we prefer Vikings! I really care about the characters in this show, which is rare in television anymore. I am sure Jon will me amazing as always and bring a special and literal “twist” to this historical Bishop!
Heahmund (Latin: Heamundus) was a medieval Bishop of Sherborne. He was consecrated between 867 and 868. He died in March 871 at the Battle of Marton. He is venerated as a saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church.
The spin of the world prayer wheel brought forth wisdom today in my opinion. We are the “appendages” of God – the bodies needed to bear witness if there is truly a God or not in times of crisis. When we help our fellows, when we smile and offer a word of comfort…shed a tear….we “show” to another God exists. I believe that in all our different “flavors”, ways and means of kindness and love to others we prove divinity exists. “When you smile at me and your eyes glow, there is the God I know.” (phrase that came to me writing this, went into my pink spirit book!)
When lightning strikes a praying crowd And the pious burn and die; When earthquakes bury decent folk And orphaned children cry; When sick and old are abandoned too And people lose their mind: Try not for these and disasters such Answers clear to find. There are times to ask if God indeed Is fancy or a fact. There are times at which we need to go And soon begin to act. With loss and pain and intense grief We don’t have much to gain, From arguments on heaven and hell. They’ll all be just in vain. Let’s search and see what we can do For those who are in need, How best we can console and heal, How we can clothe and feed. It does not matter if we do not know Why there’s pain around. What we need are helping hands, Not learned views and sound.
