The Aspect Of My Life

Go Pet Friendly

For those of you that have been following my blog for awhile, you know that I have had my questions regarding my willingness to commit to a dog in my life.  Years ago I had Patty the dachshund for an overnight stay and another time I had Rosebud for 25 hours before sending her back.  Neither dog seemed exactly right or the timing wasn't right or something just wasn't right.  I loved having Ralph for a few nights but I was equally happy to have him go back home.  So look who showed up as my neighbor for the last several days:

They have been great neighbors and conversations with Amy have answered a myriad of questions and been gently encouraging regarding dog ownership.   She even thinks she might take a picture of me to post on facebook and ask all her followers which dog breed might suit me best.

So even though  I recently killed my air plant,  I am still thinking maybe the time is right to reconsider a dog.

Astrolo Tea

Do you love tea?  My friend Pamela does.  She loves it so much she has created her own business, designed a website and poured her heart and soul into hand crafting these amazing loose leaf teas.  Please check out her website that was just launched today and if you are a tea lover, I can promise you that you will love her blends.  And if you are not that into tea, her teas just might make you change your mind.

Rock on Pamela Morgen!

For those of you interested in the Festival I will be traveling with this summer here is the link.  Also, be sure and join up for the free webinar that will start April 25th.   I was interviewed so at some point my voice will be coming across the air.

Being so open and public has really pushed me past my comfort zone.  But that is what a break through story is all about....right?

Cloudy Skies/Sunny Skies

I am sitting in the Eugene airport waiting to return to Arizona.  Just as I have finally acclimated to the cool, rainy Northwest it is now time to return to the hot deserts of the Southwest.  I am returning to the sun of the South with my own internal sun lit and replenished.

My two week visit started out as too much time, and ended with not enough time.  The generosity of three friends enabled me to split my visit among homes which hopefully made it easier for all of us.  This was the first time in years that I was able to spend hours, full days and over nights with friends, finally having time for long conversations, hugs, laughter and tears.  I feel full and blessed to continue to have these people in my life.

My legal issues with my son have been resolved and completed, each of us breathing a sigh of relief that we can now move forward.  It has been a painful learning experience for both of us but we made it through the tunnel and our bond remains unsevered.  Definitely one of the most challenging events I have gone through.

I decided to return to Riverbend Hot Springs in Truth or Consequences, NM for a 6 week workcamping stay so won't be back in Buckeye very long before I head down the road.  Hot mineral springs, starry skies and the Rio Grande are calling me back.

Life feels good.  It feels expansive, full and rich.  Some days the sky is cloudy and some days the sky is sunny.  Life is living the full spectrum.
