gratitude monday 5/11

Monday morning. Hit the ground running. Sigh. Breathe. Hmmm, that feels good.

I’ve been off my blogging sked for a few days. Too busy! I am going to get back to basics today with a fifteen-item gratitude list. The most grounding thing I know how to do. Well, up there anyway with circling with my sisters in ritual and having powerful magical orgasms. The top three!

I am grateful for:

eating food that I have grown from seed; this is a complete and utter miracle to me

watching seeds sprout and turn into plants and food

a Mother’s Day afternoon with my daughter, gifting her with a heart necklace (without you honey I would not be a mother)

safe travels in my reliable vehicle—from Oakland to San Jose to Milpitas to San Jose again to Walnut Creek to home

family dinner with my sister, brother-in-law and my dad—laughter and love

the most powerful and lovely full-moon ritual Friday night with my new most favorite song ever (lyrics below)

being the astro reporter for my circles, getting to know astrology again

the pagan festival Saturday: sunshine, lots of people, parading and drumming, smiles, hugs and friends

the sunburn I got Saturday is getting less painful already, and now I remember sunscreen!

I asked for and now have a new sponsee

the mysterious dizziness is lessening

I have released sugar again! phew, it was getting ridiculous

the mysterious internet cancellation(!) Friday only took an hour to resolve

I have my yarn all balled up and I have learned how to cable cast on and I’m ready to roll on my crone’s shawl

I have a meeting tonight to discuss a new website

Lyrics to Opening Up

We are opening up in sweet surrender
To the luminous love light of the One.
We are opening up in sweet surrender
To the luminous love light of the One.
We are opening. We are opening.
We are opening. We are opening.

We are rising up like a phoenix from the fire,
Brothers and sisters spread your wings and fly higher!
We are rising up like a phoenix from the fire,
Brothers and sisters spread your wings and fly higher!
We are rising up. We are rising up.
We are rising up. We are rising up.

We are opening up like a lotus flower;
Let the love light shine in our hearts tonight.
We are opening up like a lotus flower;
Let the love light shine in our hearts tonight.
We are opening. We are opening.
We are opening. We are opening.

Life is good and I feel totally blessed!

Do you see obstacles to your happiness? Who put them there?

What obstacles do you put between yourself and your happiness?

Sometimes Mercury retrograde can be merciless

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
