18 May 2018 Collage and Low Tide

Hello to you.  I hope this finds you well.  I’ve been very tired the past couple of days and just wanting to sleep.  Kyle thinks it’s probably me just coming down from the past few months of an extreme high.  He’s probably right.  The cycles are very taxing for me and the older I get, the more difficult they can be.  So my little travel buddy Link and I just have been resting as we can and trying to restore the ol’ battery.   My life can be  like the ocean currents with the high and low tides.

The drawing today is a collage of stuff I’ve been watching and thinking about lately…all just floating out there in the collective conscious space.

I am sad to see so many more shootings in this country, the latest in Sante Fe Texas….a 17 year old kid too! (http://abc13.com/10-dead-10-injured-in-shooting-at-santa-fe-high-school/3490869/)!  What is sad for me is these shootings are taking place in homes and schools.  Our kids are supposed to be safe in their homes and at school and they aren’t.  Even with all the new security and open carry laws, it’s just not getting much better.  We keep putting band-aids on top of what the real problems are like allowing so many troubled people access to a tool they can use in an act of passion (not self defense).  A tool they end up using to do something they can’t ever take back.  It’s not just the victims and their families that suffer either, it’s all of us! It is essentially an act of terrorism to go into a public place and shoot people.  Why these types of shootings are not treated at as an act of terrorism I don’t know but that’s what it is.  Now you have a whole bunch of people who are afraid to send their kids to school and go out into public places again.  Every time this kind of shooting happens in this country, it is an act of terrorism.

17 May 2018 Drawing and Dream

Hello to you.  Hope this finds you well today wherever and whenever you are tuning in from.  Feeling gratitude today.  I had a weird dream last night/this morning.  It was about some hotel/hospital where people were going to get plastic surgery.  I saw Prince there and it was like his face was stitched on and it was a white version of himself.  This was the case of many of the people I saw there.  I think this dream was triggered by the CNN show we watched last night, “Video Killed The Radio Star.”  Since it was from the 80’s, they of course mentioned artists like Prince, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.  They talked about how difficult it had been for musical artists of color to break through on MTV.  They have a clip of an interview where David Bowie asked one of the MTV VJ’s why there were so few videos with black artists and he got a bullshit answer.  You could tell by how David responded that he wasn’t falling for it!

It made my heart ache to think on how many artists I knew and loved from the 80’s like Prince that are no longer here with us!  It’s a tough gig to choose to be a performing artist!  I miss them and am grateful for their contributions to such a big part of my developmental years.

14 May 2018 Random

Hello to you.  It’s Monday again.  Hope that wherever and whenever you are is good.  I am feeling that surreal and random feeling this morning.  Had to have Kyle give me a kiss on the walk just to make sure it was real lol.  Have you ever had moments in your life where you need someone to touch you so you know you are really here?  For Kyle sometimes it’s a feeling like your transparent, not solid.  I’m so grateful to even have the luxury of that feeling.

A bunch of words with numbers today.  It’s so addictive for me lol.  I will look up the value of a word and then find a whole bunch of other great words on the same page!  My Aunt asked me if this was like coding.  I said I guess you could look at it like that.  For me it’s just been like having a conversation with the past.  Sometimes when I see the value of a word I will chuckle out loud to myself.  It’s kind of like being privy to an inside joke or something.  I know….”nerd” but it’s fun for me and stimulates my brain like puzzles do for other people.

I told my Aunt this morning what is interesting for me is finding the numeric value of words matching or further defining the actual definition or meaning of a word.  My favorite example is TREE, which is 48, which is 12, which is 3, which cycles back to 3.  When I think of the life cycle of a tree, I think of life, death and rebirth!

11 May 2018 Nature’s Pharmacy

Hello to you today.  Just stopping in to say hello.  Yesterday I received a box of essential oils I ordered using up the rest of a birthday gift card.  I am very pleased with them and think it was money well spent!  There are a lot of different companies that sell oils like this and some are better than others.  When I can afford it, I buy Young Living brand oils from my friend who is a distributor.  We’ve been using the ones we got yesterday in the  diffuser we picked up at Michael’s (it’s great, doesn’t require a filter!).  With both of our allergies acting up right now, having the diffuser going has helped out.  I of course geeked out and did the numbers for the oils that came in the kit and I wasn’t surprised to see several came out to the 3 cycle (life, death and rebirth).  My main “go-to” oil is mostly Peppermint.    Do you have a favorite?

9 May 2018 Avengers movie (Spoilers), numbers, drawing and Wakfu (animated series)

Hello, hope this finds you well.   My allergies are saying hello big time these past couple of days.  Tis that time of year for nature to be doing things that make my immune system fuss.

Well to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary, we went to see Avengers Infinity War.  My husband enjoyed it more than I did.  What I’m struggling with is going to the theater, holding my bladder for 2  plus hours and leaving the theater overwhelmed, sad and slightly disappointed.  Twist the eye of Agamotto (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_of_Agamotto) back to our anniversary in 2012!  We went and saw the first Avenger’s movie on that day and it was a totally different story!  We came away from the theater so pumped up and excited!

8 May 2012 – we went to see the first Avengers film for our wedding anniversary date!

What I’m seeing happen to these Marvel movies is what happened to the Harry Potter franchise for me.  The first couple of movies were balanced and “lighter” and then just progressively got really dark and depressing to the point I didn’t even go to the theater to see them!   When I actually take the time to go a movie theater to have that experience, I want it to be a positive experience and it just hasn’t been for several years for me.  We actually heard people crying in the theater when we left it yesterday!

To be fair, there was ALOT going on in this movie.  I will probably have to watch the movie a couple more times to continue to process all of it.  I had to do that with Dr. Strange.  I didn’t like that film either on the first go around.  They managed to squeeze in like 30 plus main characters and added a few extras like Peter Dinklage’s ginormous dwarf to the mix (we loved that!)  There were quips that made me laugh out loud that did help break up some of the tension.  It helped me a lot when the Guardians of the Galaxy folks showed up in the film but even that got really dark.  I mean they killed Gamora! BOO!  (Zoe Saldana: https://movieweb.com/zoe-saldana-hollywood-walk-of-fame-star/)!  I actually got goosebumps when they went to Wakanda which is Black Panther’s world.

The end of the film was surreal for me and I honestly didn’t feel anything about it.   I guess it’s because I know that all the writers have to do is rewind time or come up with some paradox and everyone will be resurrected.  Seeing Thanos in his happy moment at the end,  made me think of Marlon Brando from Apocalypse Now for some reason.  There he was all peaceful while we the viewers know countless lives, to include those of superhero’s we care about, have been reduced to literal dust.

I was of course curious what the “numbers” would say about some words pertaining to the film:
