I know that my children believe I am more insane now than ever before. But, I don’t care. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. To me, it feels as though I am learning more than ever before, and connecting more than I ever dreamed possible. London, Georgia, BC, Australia, New Hampshire, Texas, Calgary, NYC, the list seems endless now. Yesterday Kris put up a new Cake Day post, which means I had to fly right over there and see it. What I also saw was a comment from a beautiful young mother in Italy. She recently started a food blog, in English. We are now linked to her because I reached across the vast miles via the interwebs and asked her if I could share the joy, and food. She agreed.
For a really long time I bought quilting magazines, hoping it would help me to be a better quilter. They really didn’t make much difference in my skills, but I enjoyed them. I do this with food too. I read recipes and practically drool over the impossibly glamorous photos, but my cooking is no better than before (in fact, now that Daniel and I inhabit our empty nest, it has gotten much worse). My intentions are good though!
In Human Rights news, Dan Savage wrote yesterday about a new project that I think JulieLanders can totally get on board with. It’s called Write Your Principal and it was started by a woman named Jacquie Shine, who lives in San Francisco, with her “wife, our dog, a lesbian-riffic number of cats, 3 bicycles, and a million books.” Sounds like our kinda people doesn’t she?!
My good friend Cherie told me about a sort of holiday bazaar thingie that was being held at the fairgrounds this weekend. I corralled Empress and Jade to join me. Message to my First Born Child: thank you, more than you know, for your generosity and patience. Emmy, thanks to you as well, but ya know, maybe a teensy bit less. Because you haven’t given me back my belt! Don’t they look happy and excited?! And see all the treasures we found? Thank you both so much for today! Really!
And Han, I am still curious about this new eye doctor of yours? Kurt Russel? Seriously?
Archangel Raziel: Use your God-given power and intention to manifest blessings in your life.
You are a luminary, a sage, a wise one, a high priestess/high priest, a wizard, and a supreme manifestor. Now is the time to summon up your spiritual strength and power and put your authority into action. Lovingly and firmly transform your intentions into reality. Say prayers/meditate about your intentions, and ask for guidance and signs to shape your manifestations to the highest possible level, and for the highest possible good.”
