Best Birthday Card Ever

So today is my birthday — I’m 44 now (*gulp*) — and although I had told her not to worry about it, my Mom bought me a birthday card.  When she handed it to me, she hugged me and said, “I mean every word.”  She even signed it herself, which is hard for her to do because her hands shake so much.

I actually cried when I read it because it was so beautiful and because I felt so much love.  Sometimes it’s hard for me to really feel loved, so this is a special moment and I want to share it with all of you.  xx

Skywatch Friday : Forever X (-Files)


When I saw the moon lighting up these chemtrails Wednesday night, it immediately reminded me of “The X-Files” symbol and I had to shoot it. Mulder is still one of my all-time crushes (aliens and porn, oh my!! :*) and I can’t wait until Fox runs the six-ep limited series. I think I might cry.

Anyway, comments and thoughts (on my photograph or anything else, lol) are always welcome.  (I’d suggest enlarging it to get the full detail. =))

Six Words Can Say a Lot:  Show My Face 6WS

Fresh Air and Forgotten Dreams

The air tonight is crisp and smells of burning wood, like campfires and incense. I yearn to be in the forest somewhere; wild and free. I want to be in the cabin I dream about, away from everyone and everything except nature and my true self. The self that used to care more about saving the planet than getting a new iPad. How did I stray so far from the girl who was going to make a difference? When did I become so materialistic?

There has to be a way back to that girl. I know she still exists inside of me. I feel her when I’m under starry skies or watching the sun dance through the trees. I remember her passion and certainty that things could get better if only she dared to try. That girl would be beyond disappointed in who she grew up to be.

I’ve lost my way. But there’s still time to find my way back.

Tonight: I am grateful for fresh air and the idea that it’s never too late.
