another year, another carved pumpkin...but this time in front of my house! I did it again! I botched the mouth. Oh well, the tradition continues.

Music: Moving, Secret Garden

I am hooked on this song! I first heard it when I was getting a massage last month and it's been in repeat mode at work, home, and car. During the massage I was up in the clouds moving to this song and for the first time I finally saw the full spectrum of the chakra colors but the violet hues were all around me carrying and moving me in ways I had never experienced before. I didn't want to come back down from that --whatever that was!

Life lately, has been moving at the speed of sound. At work we are moving to our new building and since hurricane Ike, Houstonians have been on the move getting this and that done and cleaned up. I just bought a new bike and I love the way it moves me from here to there. During my meditations, I can't stop moving or at least my body is moving/vibrating to the chanting. A new season is upon us and yesterday afternoon after work, I was sitting in the backyard and watching all the moving. Leaves falling, squirrels moving their fall harvest from different spots, birds hurriedly flying south for the winter and butterflies moving from garden to garden for that last taste of sweet succulence. Here's to Mother Nature and her message to us that even though circumstances may be dire (economy) life is moving! So look up to the clouds and move to the dance of life.

Another weekend came and went with most of it spent working. Working the extra job to try and get ahead but with the economy tanking I wonder how much am I really getting ahead and if all this time working is worth it. There's so much that I miss doing. I have cut back a bit more than usual though as I'm now rotating my Saturday's off just to give me a break! I did treat myself to a massage yesterday and it was much needed as my therapist was having to work extra to get all the kinks out of my body. I was so excited to finally have a free evening of doing nothing and was looking forward to watching the baseball playoff game between Boston and Tampa Bay BUT was so dissappointed to learn that the game was on CABLE! I hate CABLE! NO FAIR!

1+48=another birthday

a smile from me then (1 year) and a chuckle on this 49th year of my life along with a lil tear of nostalagia rolling down my cheek. I just got a wake up call from my mom @6:10 a.m., which is the time of birth noted on my certificate and every year she calls to wish me a Happy Birthday. O.k., off to crawl back into bed for a bit as today is my late day at work.

Bad Economy

with all the bad news about the economy,
I thought I would share
which just warms my heart!
These birds were stranded and thanks to
IFAW they were released back into their
habitat but not after getting a clean bill of health
by animal vets. The date on the video reads 2007 instead of 2008.
You can read more of the story here.
Yeah Brazil!
