Reaching this milestone was inevitable, for the light that will dawn hereafter is not only what you have summoned, but what all now seek. And with your blessing and recognition it will bathe those who follow in your footsteps and the burden they bear shall be lessened.
If it's not yet obvious to you, the real reason for this season is You. A more perfect child of the Universe has never lived. Until now, only a celebration cloaked in myth and mystery could hint at your sublime heritage and divine destiny. You are life's prayer of becoming, and its answer. The first light at the dawn of eternity, drawn from the ether, so that the Universe might know its depths, discover its heights, and frolic in endless seas of blessed emotion.
A pioneer into illusion, an adventurer into the unknown, and a lifter of veils. Courageous, heroic and exalted by billions in the unseen.
To give beyond reason. To care beyond hope. To love without limit. To reach, stretch, and dream in spite of your fears. These are the hallmarks of divinity - traits of the immortal - your badges of honor, and your ticket home.
This is the time of year we celebrate who you are.
Merry Christmas, a few days early - The Universe
Yeah, I said the same thing last year, but more people are listening now, and still, a more perfect child than you has yet to be born. Unless I missed someone...
I love this quote. I think it offers a profound piece of wisdom.
I'm not sure I can improve on Kierkegaard, other than to offer that life, lived well, is truly an action adventure—with lots of ups and downs.
It's supposed to be a challenge.
Live the beauty of your dreams.
Become the miracle of personal metamorphosis.
Please don't let another year roll by without thinking about how your life impacts others... and what you can do in the coming year to discover life by living it to the fullest.
Promise yourself that next year, no matter what...
I Will Live My Dream...
For me, my friends, family and community:
"Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such. " ~ Henry Miller
The Miracles of The Season are upon us.
No question, life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful. But it can get better.
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God. ** A Course in Miracles
You can become All that You Dream.
Prepare yourself for the Miracles that surround You.
Let miracles find you.
Join the adventure. Create Miracles in your life.
Get on the bus...once you get on you'll never want to get off...
Think Good Thoughts... because Thoughts become Things.
Go On a Quest...Tally HO!!
THE LAW OF ONE
We are all one.
When one is harmed, all are harmed.
When one is helped, all are healed.
Therefore, in the name of who I AM,
and I am one with all;
I ask that ONLY THAT WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL CONCERNED happen here and now, and through all time and space.
I give thanks that this is done.
How can Thy Will not be done?

Much of this seasonal mood has roots in the celebration of Winter Solstice, which takes place every year in the northern hemisphere on December 21 or 22. On that day, the daytime hours are the shortest they will be all year while the nighttime is at a maximum. For the ancients, this indicated the disappearance of the nourishing, life-sustaining sun and yet it also meant that in the days following the Solstice, the Sun would rise and strengthen again, bringing the promise of spring and new life. The Winter Solstice pledges the same to us today. It presents an opportunity to release that which we want to leave in the past and set our intention for the coming year.
Many aspects of ancient Winter Solstice festivals live on in traditions of the season. The Roman midwinter holiday, Saturnalia was a merry time in which homes were decked with boughs of laurel and evergreen while friends visited each other with fruit, cakes and other treats. In Scandinavia, people listened to minstrel-poets singing ancient legends while the yule log, which was thought to magically help the sun shine brightly, burned in the family hearth.
Burning indoor hearths and candles were an aspect of numerous winter solstice festivals and continue to be a part of the season today. In Iran, the Winter Solstice is observed through the Yalda festival, when a huge bonfire is kindled to symbolically stimulate the sun to grow stronger. For the Hopi tribe of Native Americans, the month-long Soyal festival includes many rituals to honor lights shining amid darkness, a theme echoed by holidays such as Christmas, Chanukah and Kwanzaa. Common to many winter solstice festivals is the gathering of friends and family to feast and spend time together. China's winter solstice festival is called Dong Zhi and is marked by plentiful winter foods.
For many in northern climates, Winter Solstice is an opportunity to celebrate the cyclical nature of our lives. You can honor the New Solar Year by creating your own Winter Solstice ritual incorporating both darkness to represent the end of a year and light, to mark the rising sun. Perhaps you will want to close off the artificial lamps and light candles or a bonfire, ringing in the solstice as in ancient times. Maybe you will choose to contribute some time to helping those having a hard winter or just spend some time meditating on how to bring more light into the world. Whatever, you do to commemorate this crucial time of year, remember that winter solstice is all about the hope for a bright and warm future.
I have journaled for many many years... since 1980 consistently, sporadically prior to that. I have journal that go back to when I was 10.
I go thru my journals specifically to look at the cycles and themes of my life, that surround the Soltices and Equinox. There are several major lessons that are recurring themes in my life. More about that later...
If you want to create your own ritual for the winter solstice, keep in mind that many modern observances involve symbols for three important actions: remembering and appreciating the year that is ending, letting go of the "bad stuff" in the past that we want to leave behind, and then setting an intention or a direction for the new year.
Orange's are the colors for the the Day.
I have honored the cycles with awareness since 1988.
Soltice exactly occurs today at:10:35 PST.
You can learn more at Candlegrove on the exact time. They have a beautiful and very informative site that is dedicated to Winter Solstice.
So for now...Happy Yule! I am off to cleanse in the beautiful rain in my back yard to remove my old wheel and build a new one.
Son RISE!!! I will also observe Son Set....
In Love and Gratitude to all of YOU.

Sometimes being your true radiant self, living in the moment, glad for all you already have and who you already are, isn't always easy.
Nope, such conditions create the precise moment in one's life when the floodgates of abundance swing open the farthest, giving rise to that persistent, nagging issue of the ages:
...where to put it all.
Caught you just in time, huh, ?
Tomorrow is Winter Equinox...
I sing...Out with the Dark and In with the LIGHT!!!

From today's Daily OM
"There are times when we may feel disconnected from the world. Our actions can seem like they are of no major consequence, and we may feel like we exist in our own vacuum. Yet, the truth is that our simplest thought or action - the decisions we make each day, and how we see and relate to the world - can be incredibly significant and have a profound impact on the lives of those around us, as well as the world at large. The earth and everything on it is bound by an invisible connection between people, animals, plants, the air, the water, and the soil. Insignificant actions on your part, whether positive or negative, can have an impact on people and the environment that seem entirely separate from your personal realm of existence. Staying conscious of the interconnection between all things can help you think of your choices and your life in terms of the broader effect you may be creating.
Think of buying a wooden stool. The wood was once part of a tree which is part of a forest. A person was paid to fell the tree, another to cut the wood, and yet another to build the stool. Their income may have had a positive effect on their families, just as the loss of the tree may have had a negative impact on the forest or the animals that made that tree their home. An encouraging word to a young child about their special talent can influence this person to develop their gift so that one day their inventions can change the lives of millions. A poem written "merely" to express oneself can make a stranger reading it online from thousands of miles away feel less alone because there is someone else out there who feels exactly the way they do.
Staying conscious of your connection to all things can help you think of your choices in terms of their impact. We are powerful enough that what we do and say can reverberate through the lives of people we may never meet. Understanding that you are intimately connected with all things and understanding your power to affect our world can be the first step on the road to living more consciously."
I have thinking a lot of all the wonderful people whose paths have intertwined and crossed mine this year. Do we fully realize the impact we have on each other?
Do we in our own self denial, realize that we are all Angel's in each others lives? Think about the fondness we feel for each other as bloggers. Strangers (in the beginning) who we have never met and may never...yet bonds are created, love, respect and concern grows for each other. The Universe creates an impeccable system of support, and brings together those that were bound and destined in some way, to meet and touch each other's souls.
I am very grateful for all of you. We all keep each other feeling, moving and Shining...

I found this today as I was uploading my own video's that I have made.
This guy travels around the world and dances. He is living his dream.
What would you do if you could live your dream(s) and do anything you wanted? Imagine no limit, no constrictions. What would you do? How creative can you get? The first thing to achieving those dreams is being grateful for everything in your life and then imagining it... the Key to being grateful is here.

Another castaway has joined the island.
I got a kick out of the random question and answer in the Profile area. Fits with my post today.
Why does the taste of pennies remind you of losing a tooth?
The same reason that the taste of dimes reminds me of LSD .
to me in the mood I am in today. Leo started it. Blame him.

It just isn't going to be done today. I have a couple of major commitments and hopefully I will be able to fully sit down, contemplate on the subjects, and put it all down sometime in the next day or so. I promise I will do it ASAP. It may be in the middle of the night when I should be sleeping if I was a normal person.
I always do this on the new year. I have never done it publicly. Kind of like taking inventory and showing it to another Human Being...I like the idea of skipping the Fourth step you know. KIDDING!!!!
I am into lazy deep thought right now. Read someone else's.
I am trying to avoid depp thoughts. Trying to stay sane thru this treatment.
Did any one see my pics on the Church Site? I played with Flickr a little when I couldn't sleep last night. You can actually make comments on the pics like a blog. Perty Coowell. I might put some here too.
Tally HO! Gotta GO!!

"Harlequin Enterprises is ready to get you all revved up.
The romance novel publisher has hooked up with NASCAR to put out a line of truly racy romances.
In the pole position, due next month, is "In the Groove" by Pamela Britton. It's the story of a former teacher named Sarah Tingle — yes, Tingle — who is forced to take a job driving the team bus for a fictional driver.
"He's upset 'cause she doesn't know who he is, and sparks fly," Harlequin spokeswoman Katherine Orr said.
It was Britton's idea to stage the unlikely wedding of NASCAR and Harlequin. She wrote a racing romance last year titled "Dangerous Curves" and wooed Harlequin with the series. The publisher popped the question, and the two embraced wildly in a feverish clinch, also known as a licensing agreement.
It might seem a star-crossed affair. But NASCAR claims that it has 30 million women in its fan base.
Harlequin, which sold 130 million books in 2004, offers a spectrum of sexuality in its various series. The NASCAR books will have "a very low level of sensuality," by romance novel standards, Orr said. "It's a family-oriented sport."
But one that, nevertheless, makes Sarah tingle."
Harlequin Romance Writer's are one of the most widely read Author's that there are. I have never quite figured that out personally, but then I am not into romance novel's. I don't believe I have ever even read one and I know I have not ever read one of the Harlequin's.
I think I'll go to the thrift store and buy (ugh) a couple for a quarter and (ugh) read them. The thought makes the nausea start churning in my gut.
I am as worthy of writing garbage and getting rich person who wrote all that garbage and got rich. They have just been smarter than I, and targeted the right market.
If your interested in the submission guidelines they are at the Harlequin Website along with a lot of actually, very good "Learn to write and get published information."
Maybe we should have a little "Who can write the best NASCAR oriented Romance Novel" Writer's Group. Like real novelist's do.
Some possible titles:
Humpin at Humpy's
Love at Lowes
Sittin on the Pole **teehee**
I couldn't help that one.
Rae Monet has written one that probably will give you an idea of the content. You can check it out here

I wrote this really great post and messed up something and kept losing my links...then I published it and lost it. Oh well...it was just a bitch fest.
I was finishing my daily routine for you. You don't want to know. It makes me tired.
What is the big news and buzz about tonite? Well let me tell you. There are a lot of men upset at a NATIONAL EMERGENCY that happens this evening. OH my GOLLY GEE...SIT DOWN WHILE YOU READ THIS.
Will the Victoria's Secret Holiday Special be broadcast in HD or NOT?
What is Victoria's fuckin Secret anyway?
I think Victoria is a cross dressing Man.
Here is a book you can get the real Victoria for Christmas.
Thanks to Tina Renee for turning me on to that link. **lol** Very funny. Just what I needed. (by the way, Tina Renee has the best Tony Stewart site out there.)
Oh! While your here...run over to The Church and read the post about the Driver's Survivor Contest. Read carefully because it's a funky tricky little contest. then go to and vote for Dale Jr every day until we put him out... then we will move onto Jeff Gordon and Jimmy Johnson from there. We have to be cunning....

I have recieved several e-mails today wanting to know if I was ok. Thank You!! It feels good to know somebody notices when I am not here...
Here is a sample of my average day :
12 AM: Wake up hot flashing. Strip Naked. Lay there til I cool off and try not to wake up Dale.
12:20 AM: Give up on that bullshit. If he wakes up, he wakes up. Crawl out of bed. Start freezing. Put warm dry jama's back on. Shut the french doors and go lay on the couch. Fall asleep...
1:00 AM: 17 year cat with Kidney and Kitty Alzheimer's disease wakes me up yowling like he is part Siamese because he wants tuna fish juice. He thinks...no.. he wants water...no...he changed his mind. He wants outside. No... wait it is cold out there and he is afraid of the dark these days. I take him outside. He wants right back in. We cuddle up under the blanket again, on the couch.
1:30 AM: Fall asleep again.
2:ooAM: Wake up with another Hot flash. Strip naked til I cool off. Now I am freezing and I need to go back in the bedroom to get more dry jammy's. Open the French doors...Wake up Dale. Dale turns into Satan. Satan falls back to sleep. I crawl in bed and fall asleep again.
2:30 AM: Repeat scenario 1...plus the Cat starts his thing again.
3:00 AM: Rpeat all every half hour until 5:30 or 6 AM if I am lucky.
6 AMish: Give up. Get up and make coffee. Answer all email as caffiene kicks in.
JEESH I am getting tired reading this. I better go take a nap and finish it later....

I took this picture this summer from my back yard.
Going Away To Go Within Retreat
Occasionally, we need to pause - and step away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. One way to do this is to get away from our daily life and go on retreat. Far more than a vacation, a retreat offers us time to ourselves to rest, heal, reflect, and renew our spirit. It is a time to cocoon so that we may emerge renewed, refreshed, and ready to return to our everyday lives with a new perspective. A retreat gives us time for uninterrupted meditation so that we may go deep within and spend time with ourselves. A retreat may offer quiet, solitude, and sometimes even silence. Retreats often take place in humble dwellings with simple fare so that our senses may be reawakened to the beauty of unadorned tastes and the sights and sounds of nature. When we spend days in contemplation, we can more easily hear our heart when it speaks to us. We also are able to really listen when a bird sings, deeply breathe in the smell of flowers, grass, or earth, and delight in a soft breeze blowing on our cheek. When we go on retreat we have time to connect to the sacred geometry of a labyrinth, discover epiphanies through asanas, or take a long, reflective walk through the woods where we can give each step our full attention. Without the pull of deadlines, relationships, the Internet, or other media, we give ourselves time to go deep into our own solitude where we can fully reflect on our joys, sorrows, and fears, owning and releasing them as needed. We may even come to know and understand our life path more deeply. Hopefully, when we return home, we can take a little bit of this time alone back with us and create the space for deep reflection on a daily basis. We also may come back to our life renewed and ready to take on the world. The beauty of going on retreat is that no matter where you go or how long you stay, you'll always meet yourself when you get there.

I am going to start posting some of my artwork, jewelry designs and photographs with you all. Let you in to my life so" Who I Really Am" is always here. Some of you already know these things, but for those of you that are new to my blog, there may be a suprise or two. Maybe I will surprise myself. This kind of activity spurs more creativity in me and BOY do I need that right now.My NANOWRIMO Novel deadline is MIDNIGHT. I need 2000 more words to meet my mark. I can do it!!
I practice a program called Artist's Way and am an avid student of A Course in Miracles. Here is an 18 minute MP3 Gratitude meditation:
It is very nice, and free to share.
I have a new post on The Church of the Great Oval about NASCAR and my Daughter. I did a big booboo. Funny
And now...I must return to the Novel...2000 to go.

The neatest thing happened this morning. Dale is very ill today with side effects from the medicine that masquerades as poison. Today is the worst day he has had.
My youngest daughter has (thank the Universe) finally left her husband. She took her Power back and left...I am so proud of her. She rented a little house, took my granddaughter Paige's things and said " I am outta here" after months of trying in a no go, not healthy for her or Paige situation. She gave it her all. I am proud of her for giving every shot she could and proud of her for calling it quits, no matter what it took. She left everything and doesn't care. She is filing her divorce papers tomorrow.
She called me this morning to see if I had any extra pots, pans, etc. that she could have so she didn't have to spend any extra money. I gathered up some stuff for her...a goody bag of dishes,dish soap, towels, T.P., shampoo, silverware and cooking utensils, extra blankets, sheets and pillows. (Guess what she's getting for Christmas?)
When they got here , Dale was finally asleep, so I ran the goody bag(s) out to the car. Paige said " Is Dale-papa sick?" She is 4 by the way. I said "Yes, honey he is still sick but he gonna get well again." She replied " I need to go touch his forehead and he will be well Grama."
I said okaaaaay ...I bet your touch will make him feel better...and hauled her in the house. She went over to where Dale was lying on the couch and told him" I am making you all well and layed her little hand on his forehead. She took her hand off, said "I think I will do it again" layed her hand on his head again and said "I'm done! Your all better now." It was precious. She skipped out of the house all happy.
It lit him up like a light.
For now anyway... his pain is gone. Interesting, huh?
I think we are capable of so much when we are children. We lose that along the way. Forget. Children can remind us to remember...again.

I want to clarify what I believe to be the reason my favorite Moron Hosts will say they beheaded and killed then cremated me and Babs and Denise and who knows how many others by now..... before they post their explanation, if they ever do.
Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust. May my posts and comments Rest in Peace with Jimi... because they are gone (at least to me) forever.
Anyone who reads my blogs know that I rarely, if ever swear in my posts... Never on The Church of the Great Oval and rarely on the beheaded dead and cremated "On a Quest" and "The Church of the Great Oval #2" formerly published on the blog host that does not allow Free Speech or Artistic Freedom through Photography.
I was appalled at the fact that Bab's and Denise's blogs were cremated. Yes... they frequently posted passionate expletives, and push it to the edge photo's and polls etc. So do many other Bloggers at that same host. The only difference between Bab's and Denise and the other Blogger's that post the type of "humorous, sometime a little racy" posts is Bab's and Denise were also very vocal in voicing displeasure at the problems within the new owners infrastructure and lack of professionalism. Here are some of the frustrations expressed by many, which began this great drama.
Problems with infrastructure...
Links and references to Apology's and Excuses:
Welcome to the New Blogster
Welcome to NEW Blogster again...
Starting to get the picture?
Here are a couple interesting posts from the new owner of "Let's run the site like NAZI'S":
** I want to note I was one of those people who wrote him nice e-mail and posted nice comments on his blog encouraging him to hang in there.
That this too will pass.**
"I just talked to Arthur, the former CB at Blogster and he swears that the speed and time out issues that we are seeing now were exactly the same under his regime. I would like to know from everyone if you had all of these speed and timeout issues prior to three weeks ago, because the site has not left Arthur's server. We have done nothing to cause these problems. Its apparent to us that it is something Arthur has done and he is not being cooperative to get the speed fixed. I apologize for this." Walleyeman posted 10/14/2005
So much for my favorite Walleye Man posts. I will save the best for last. On with the story...
My first thought was "Oh, it is just another tech issue." I watched as comments began to stack up on the owners blog and on the new editors blog. All censored, with #### covering up the FUCK word. Then I noticed as I bounced back and forth reading those comments that some of those comments were disappearing minutes after they were posted. But only the comments that were "bad". The naughty comments.
I then thought: "oh they don't really have an actual human editor, it's a bot."
So I started fucking with the FUCK word. **(F.U.C.K. was an acronym for Focused Unaturally on Carnal Knowlege in patients mental hospital medical charts originally, by the way. The word did not exist prior to Freud.)
I found that if I mispelled it like fuk it would be in the comment. Okay, it's a bot. *f*u*c*k* worked. Bot again.
The real question of the day was not answered yet. Still a mystery.
What happened to Babs and Denise?
I wrote several posts... something about "Where the FUCK ARE THEY AND WHAT IS THIS CENSORSHIP BULLSHIT?" and titled them something like FUCK FUCK FUCKITY FUCK and FUCK YOU FUKKING FUCKSTERS...and left a comment or two in the same light, posted a very artistic picture of a couple of penis's tattooed like snakes and a bite me sammuch just to see if a bot was doing the editing or if a real human chickenshit ROBOT paid to delete person was actually reading the posts and comments.
WHAM!!! BAM!!! YOU'RE GONE!!! On a Quest was gone. All my comments were gone...all the links and comments on my blog buddies were gone. There WAS a real person reading comments and blogs and killing the bloggers who fussed. Get rid of the bad kids. Kick them out of the Club.
I "ran" as fast as I could to the COTOG2 blog and started notification of my buddies that they were going to kill me. Posted a couple of "Fuck you farewell assholes, don't anybody click on the Google ads and make these fuckers any more money, I wanted you to delete this blog along time ago any way and you said you couldn't" Left a comment on the owner and editors ads with a lot of mispelled words like fuk ufukkincoksukinfuksticks or something like that and went out in a blaze of GLORY... in the middle of e-mailing Grumpy.
I imagine they will say I was harrasing them with bad typos, encouringing financial failure by telling people to boycott their Google ad's, posted porn and objectionable and/or copyrighted material and therefore violated you know who's the asshole's user agreement ( I started blogging there when Arthur still had it) and they reserve the right to boot anyone off they want....etc....etc...
That leads me to post my very favorite Walleye Man "article"...
"I GET A HARD ON WHEN I TAKE MY MEDS"
"Right after I get my drug, I have a burst of energy, don't want to sleep and usually get a hard on immediately as the drug is going into my veins. Sometimes I wonder what I would be like if I felt that great all the time- I think it scares me." Tony Walleye 10/13/05
Well... now I have to tell you...that scares me a lot too.
Maybe those artsy fukity snakes belonged to him.
I am always amazed at what my Daily Note from the Universe says...always perfect timing...here is my note for today:
It's always been my intention that one day you'd inherit the earth, have dominion over all things, and thoroughly kick butt.
How does today sound?
Think of it,
You can get your own daily note's here at Tut's Adventurer's Club.
It's an awesome organization. Tally Ho!!
Thoughts really do Create Things!
Think good ones!
Think fun ones!
Dare to Dream and Act on those Dreams!!

Well here is the new home where you have my permission to say anything you want. If I don't like it, I will delete it and not my blog host. Thank all of you for your caring and support. I intend to build a strong and united team here.
Never fuck with a Scotch Irish Red head who's already grumpy, hot flashing ( I call it POWER SURGING) on Thanksgiving Day.
Now I will begin Blog hopping to grab links for da blahhhhhhhhgggggg.
