R * R TIME
THe blog will be vacant for several days , as I seek cooler temperatures. I have grown so used to the familiarity of our daily exchanges that i will most certainly miss them
How did the rose ever open its heart and give to this world all of its beauty? It felt the encouragement of Light against its being; otherwise we all remain too frightened.

GOOD NIGHT MOON
THAT OLD DESERT MOON
need i say more
1. What's the craziest thing you've ever done (and admitted to your God Daughter)?
2. If you were on a ventilator, life support, would you want your family to turn off the machines?
3. How old were you when you had your first kiss?
4. What's your favorite place in the world?
5. What is your favorite thing about YOURSELF?
As I have mentioned in prior posts I really enjoy taking any kind of self evaluation test. These five questions are part of a turn around Captivating Camille! Has going on her blog and I took her up on her enticing offer.
So.... Here we go...
1. hmmm... Well many things I do on a regular basis could be perceived by other people as 'crazy'; however, with the add on " and told your God Daughter about it", makes me think you are asking for more of the "unmentionables" type stuff.
If it is O.K. with the format of this go round, I request time to ask my God daughter as she has an outstanding memory, where as mine..... is........ well....
what was I answering???
I will post back with this answer within 2 days.
I feel like I can't breathe- Dear God ! Just the thought gets me queasy . That odd weak behind my knees , I'M falling inward sensation.
You didn't clarify if I was brain dead or not.
If this were the result of a sudden accident or catastrophic medical event where recovery was not probable, I would want to be kept on the machine only long enough for all of those closest to me for whom saying good-bye would be helpful, to be able to do that.
If it were a situation where requiring a ventilator was temporary and hopes for a recovery strong, then I would leave that decision up to the people whom I have already asked to make that decision, God, forbid, it should ever come to this.
I still have a " TO DO " list long enough to fill several life times , so I would like every opportunity to at least to check off half of my items.
Wow! That was a loooooong time ago. Yes it was the ever dreaded "Spin the bottle scenario". I was 12 or 13
QUESTION # 4
I have not yet made it to Europe, where I am certain I will have a "most favorite place" after extensive travel there.
For Now, I will say, LaJolla California, New York City, and the Yoga Studio I practice in.
Oh Crud....You did say one, an impossible demand for a middle aged Gemini =)
Question # 5
O.K. another tuffey...hmmmm. ..... uuuuuuuhmmmmm.... Sigh...........
My constant yearning to both learn and experience new things.
O.K. Miss Camille, what is the proper next move in this exchange???

Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief.
Do justly, now.
Love mercy, now.
Walk humbly, now.

WE ARE IRISH TWINS!!!
TODAY MI HERMANNA,MI COMPADRE HAS A BIRTHDAY
what is it about me ???
I get excited about taking anykind of personality test. the problem is I often dont find any of
the multiple choice answers fitting to me, or, i am really two of the answers combined , but
clicking two is never an option. hmmmmmmm...anyway, here are some results,,
You Are a Soy Latte
At your best, you are: free spirited, down to earth, and relaxedAt your worst, you are: dogmatic
and pickyYou drink coffee when: you need a pick me up, and green tea isn't cutting itYour
caffeine addiction level: medium
IN TRUTH : i would never turn my nose up at a vanilla soy latte; however, my standard out of
home coffee choice is usually a Venti ( or the biggest they have ) whilte chocolate mocha.
I enjoy soy iced, but not heated. I should order low fat milk, but i never do. I like whole milk, or
even better half and half. (yuuuuummmmmm)
This could change in my future if my cholestoral were to get in a disagreeable range.
