I have meditated in the past, on and off, mostly by doing focused breathing. When I began doing yoga along with my fitness routine (and mastering the side plank) I became more focused in my meditations. I began to understand the link between focused breathing and my body in ways I didn’t before.
Yesterday, two people walked right past me, literally a foot distance from my physical person.
They knew I was there, waiting for them.
They walked past me and into the parking lot like their life depended on it.
I thought, have I reverted to being invisible again?Continue reading “Kicking the pity party to the curb”

I woke up an hour later than usual this morning and I felt it simmering deep in my core.
*It* being an unidentifiable something. The onset of depression? Some other emotional upheaval?
Maybe it’s the change in weather. Or the doom and gloom on the news I sometimes watch when I join my mom in the tv room.
(Note to self: stay out of the tv room.)Continue reading “Writing to turn the negative pull into uplifting cheer”

Shocking, I know. 🙄Continue reading “You’re too sensitive, stop taking things so personally”
On this Monday morning, after a few less-than-pleasant wake-ups by smelly puppy and later an attack by muddy puppy paws, I took my tarot card deck, shuffled it, and asked myself the following question (while shuffling):Continue reading “Onwards”
What is this silence people speak of? What does it feel like?
There’s a lot of noise in my life and in my head.Continue reading “Silence, music and The Purge”
The other day I pulled the Three of Swords card and immediately thought, oh no, not again.
Just look at this card. Three sharp swords are stabbing a bright, red heart. 💔
But then, I looked closer.Continue reading “Tarot Tuesdays – swords and air”
Something has been percolating in my brain for a while, but I couldn’t find the words to talk about it on a public forum until today. Perhaps I will find the words if I simply type them into the keyboard.
It began with a syndicated episode of The Big Bang Theory. I see the scene in front of me but I can’t find it when I google it. It’s not so much the scene that made an impression anyway, it’s the phrase.
