9 Aug 2018 – Tis the gift to be simple

Hello to you.  Not much to say today.  The dogs and I have been kind of “off” today.  Spot’s tummy has been upset so much she hasn’t wanted her normal indulgences, I’ve been teary and Link has been worried about the two of us!   Kyle is fine….he has video games lol.  My dreams had a music theme last night.  I dreamt about Prince and I had a dream about singing a song I’d never heard before but of course I can’t remember the words.  Before I woke up I was hearing Rod Stewart singing a song with the phrase “Becky’s coming home tonight”  in it.  I looked and that isn’t in the songs I know by him so my mind was off on it’s own with that one!   I need a dream recorder thingy!

Anyhew – I hope this finds you well wherever and whenever you are.  My prayers go out to all the folks being traumatized right now in big or small ways by forces they can’t control.

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free,
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain’d,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be asham’d,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come ’round right.

Hi there!  How are you doing from where and when you are?  It’s 8:35 am on this Wednesday morning.  I don’t have an appetite this morning and haven’t been sleeping well for several weeks now.  I think it’s how busy I’ve been in the dream realms.  There have been lots of dreams.  So many I can’t keep track of them enough when it comes time to write them down.  Just before I woke up this morning, there was something about an elderly man and some sort of medical procedure that was helping his wife.  There was some liquid – thinking this was inspired by my interest in Keshe Foundation plasma.  The liquid was milky white like the stuff in the batch I have beside my bed.  Just before I woke up he received a call on a digital device from his wife, it was good news.  Wouldn’t it be nice to think that somewhere in the world this was really happening for someone?

Last night before bed I went out and did a silly chalk drawing to add to the mural I’ve got going on our back patio.  At first it was just one eye and then I decided to make a bunch more in the circles.  I’ve been having a little dry spell in my creativity flow….that’s o.k. because my chalks are almost used up except for the colors I don’t use very often lol!  Looking at it this morning, the drawing looks like something Pablo Picasso might have dreamt up!

Thank you for stopping by to visit here whether it was intentional or not.  Knowing my ramblings and scribbles might be a positive point in anyone’s day gives me encouragement to keep at it.  Much love and light to you and yours!
