Faery Dust

Image
I think all I need is a "little faery dust". Yep blown into the wind with a wish and things start to change. Wouldn't it be marvelous?

The house...cleaned.
Money in the bank.
Harmony in life.

Oh yes...a little faery dust would go a long way. But then again...faery wishes are tricky things. Just when you get the very thing you wish for....nip....it bites you. If you obtain something too easily....by simply blowing the faery dust into the wind....you miss out on the experiences that occur when you achieve it yourself.

Along the road of life, sometimes we get the things we want/work for and sometimes we don't but even when they are unobtainable...we gain something from the experience itself. We learn little lessons, we gather endurance, we shift our mind set, we learn that everything that glitters is not gold (or faery dust either).

For the journey through life is about just that...gathering more inner wisdom than jewels or riches. Oh would I turn down a lottery win? N…

Something...

Today I've had this nagging sensation that something is just not as it should be. Perhaps it's just a bit of post Christmas blues or winter doldrums. I'm not sure...just a sense of uneasiness, a twinge of sadness, and a feeling that something needs "fixing" but what?

Have you ever wondered about moods and how they seem to slip into our lives and upset the balance that we try to achieve. Once I wrote about feeling like something was hurtling at me through the darkness, just outside the range of my consciousness....I proposed that thing was another me...in another dimension....coming dangerously close to colliding with the me in this dimension. Well.....it seemed like a good explanation at the time. lol

This doesn't feel like that. This is different. A frustration that I can't "fix things" for all the people I love and care about. You know...make their worlds perfect for them or at least better. A sense of emptiness at the many sad things that hap…

Spring Break

Image
So last year a couple friends and I did Spring Break on a budget and my total cost for a trip to Hot Springs Arkansas was right at $300. That included gas, room, food, and entertainment! We are attempting to put together another little trip and as I told them....they are already putting me over my budget from last year.

So we are looking at a little Vegas package that includes hmmm....I think four days three nights, and airfare. Also included are tickets to a show. Coming in at $380 that's already over budget from last year and I have to eat while I'm there. I'm gonna make a guesstimate of $500 for this trip but I'll let you know the grand total if we actually go!

So off to count my pennies and see if I can pull off a little Spring Break adventure!!

The Quest

So dear readers.....it's been awhile but I have been busy...such is the journey through life full of things to do when one would much rather be blogging.....I hope your new year is off to a great start. My word for 2011 is QUEST.....and as I started the year I had a rather foggy idea of what the word might mean in my own life and how I might live it in 2011. As January comes to a close, I have a better more clearly developed vision of the Quest.... but it is still unfolding each day.

As I started the year I decided that throughout the year I would search for or be on the lookout for Quest clues....things that present themselves to me that seem to have "some meaning" and that might guide me on this quest of 2011. Let me share the "quest clues" I have collected so far.

On the very first day of 2011 my friends took me on a mystery "quest" which was a lot of fun. On that day one of my friends was reading from a book, and this "lesson" was presen…
