More Cyber Stalking?

I've been examining certain names on Facebook and other social networking sites, and I discovered all of the names I picked out for my children under one surname that's rather significant to me. All I can say at this point is Thank you. I'm honored someone would validate our memories in that way.

They say "with age comes wisdom". There also comes a certain peace and knowledge of who you are and what you're here on Earth to do. There comes a time when you realize you don't have to regret any of the decisions you've made in the past, because no matter what, you're still exactly where you're supposed to be, doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing. That knowledge brings about a certain peace and contentment. Breathe. Smell the lilacs. Plant some more flowers so you can smell sweetness all summer long. Stop worrying about anything. Count your blessings.

Its Spring

It's very beautiful out today. Sunshine, and not too warm yet, but all the leaves are out on my maple trees in the backyard. These trees leaf out early and they are the last leaves to fall. Finally figured out (I asked) the yellow bushy things on the other side of the alley are bamboo. Who would have thought!! I am going to have to go over there and see if I can get some roots to plant. The place is abandoned. The place next to it is abandoned and has gorgeous ferns growing there that I transplanted years ago to my backyard. I think I will put the bamboo on the west fence line. There once was a time there were no trees in the yard at all, just a very dry sunny yard with nothing but grass. Now I have trees 40 or more feet tall. There are also thousands of tiny little trees growing under them. Anybody need a baby tree?

The President promised to abolish daylight savings time. I'd like to see that happen soon enough that we only have to change our time one more time..........ever!! Whoever enacted Daylight Savings Time in the first place obviously had no humor and couldn't take a joke. What was that email I got from the Indians? How does cutting a foot off one end of a board and tacking it on the other end make it longer?


Okay, I've stopped holding my breath since the election. I've also stopped reading the newspapers, stopped watching any news whatsoever. Decided if I'm going to survive no matter what. I need to read my own blogs, practice what I preach, and revert to the Abraham Hicks teachings that I've been telling everyone else to read! We make our own economy by our beliefs. I'm doing great and expect to do much better. Nothing is impossible and the only roadblocks we stumble over are the ones we put in our own path.

Write your own story. Tell it like you want your life to be, not how it appears to be right now. Nothing is impossible and you can do and be anything you want to. If you worry, that's your spirit, your soul, telling you that you need to change your thoughts. Instead of focusing on your problems, focus on your blessings. Keep doing that until you are no longer worried and have put your self into a better-feeling-place. It is not nonsense. Give it a try. Harken back to your early days in Sunday School. Count your blessings! Then go from there.

I'm in the process of writing my own story the way I want things to be.

As a result I've agreed with myself (isn't that easy) to stop worrying about anything.

My favorite thing to do these days is watch the bull riders of PBR on the weekends, and watch Ty Murray on Dancing with the Stars on Mon and Tues. I am amazed he's survived so far, though I knew he was a success because of his persistence and hard work, I wasn't sure how his personality would survive the "unmanly" spray tans and the like. So far I think the PBR fans are keeping him going. I've learned there are many more of them than I'd imagined. I've been watching PBR for the past four years. I've got my PBR hunks calendar on the wall (with my favorite Paolo who was injured and isn't riding, and my very favorite "Hollywood" i.e., Guillherme Marchi who won last year.) I sit there in my rocker-recliner crocheting and watching the cowboys and the bulls. Sometimes I root for the bulls.

In the meantime, I'm working very hard on my intellectual properties. Trying to finish up the women's historical adventure novel, Kekionga, and at the same time trying to market my animated feature film screenplay The Wish Factory. Working right now on finding backers for it, and exploring the production of a short animated trailer to "sell" the project to backers.

Also working on our 50th Class Reunion. How did I get that job? Well, no one else was doing it. This year I think we're going to have a very good turn out. There aren't many of us, but most of us have been relatively close over the years.

My psychic said I have too much to do. Maybe he's right. In the meantime, I've got to get busy and go to the Taurus birthday party at my brother's.

Stay safe, breathe, keep doing that. Love and kisses. Jana
