“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.” E. B. White For much of my life, I’d felt a deep urge to help others…but it never seemed like I was doing enough. I believed… Continue reading What will I do today?
A short video clip of Cesar Millan and Eckhart Tolle talking about the positive energy that dogs (I would extend that to all animals) bring to our lives, showed up in my inbox this morning, and I wanted to share it with you. Sending you all thoughts of harmony, happiness, and fun today! Mary
The other day, I began imagining that a ball of light-energy was radiating love and good feelings from my center (solar plexus) to everyone that I met. I found that it took quite a bit of effort to keep focused on that image and not let my mind just wander wherever it wanted to go.… Continue reading looking for evidence
A while back, I wrote about my 85-year-old mother wanting to get a computer and me nixing the idea. I really couldn't imagine her learning any new technology (since she has never shown the slightest interest in anything like this before now). Well, she decided she was going to get one and asked Amanda (her… Continue reading A good plan and a hair crime
I went upstairs on Saturday afternoon and found Fred peacefully sleeping in what had been Ben's bed. I'd noticed Ben downstairs on the couch, but that they had exchanged places (or more likely, Fred just took over Ben's spot and Ben adjusted accordingly) didn't occur to me until I was taking their pictures. I love… Continue reading “I distinctly remember forgetting that.”
When we returned home from Mexico, I unpacked my small suitcase and stuck it on top of the dresser. I had planned on putting it away (but am never very fast about that kind of stuff) and the next thing I knew, Ben had found his new favorite place to sleep. Each time I looked… Continue reading Wouldn’t it be interesting if….
Jack sat down with a cup of coffee the other day, and Eleanor jumped onto his lap and then put her face close to his face, like she's done since she was a tiny kitten. Eleanor was a "breakthrough" cat for Jack. When I met him, even though he really liked cats, he said that… Continue reading The healing power of Love..making new memories
At some point in my life, I started to believe that I wasn't any good with plants. I don't remember how it began, but it ended up with me not having any house plants at all. If offered one, I'd politely refuse it saying that the cats ate them. If I received one as a… Continue reading the power of belief
A friend sent me a slide show last night of 50 photographs (the link is below). The images that I loved the most, were the ones that were not posed or trying to be dramatic; they just were. For a large part of my life, I have had the feeling that I should be something… Continue reading Missed the boat?
None of our cats have loved getting attention from Luke, but Noah has always been really afraid of him. Yesterday was different. I looked over and saw Luke licking Noah's head, and my first reaction was to shoo him away, but as I waited a second, I realized that Noah was enjoying it. Something changed,… Continue reading an inventory; re-labeling my life
