YAY...finished the update. I felt that I was taking way too long. I've added a music clip to some of the pages. Also if it worked, I have added music to my blog. I have added a new graphic to the magick page...love that wolf...he is sooo beautiful. Took me damn near half the day to track down the owner, of the picture, and get permission...which was easy, because he had the permission as well as the code on his page. But I considered it important enough to seek permission, to find him.
Sometimes I don't sleep very much, being hyper or just have things on my mind. I went to bed late last night, although I'd been up since 5 a.m., and awoke at 5:30 this morning. This is my last day here, my friend's nephew is here to take care of the dogs now. They will have to get use to him, but I think they will be fine. They are fine dogs, once you and they get acquainted. I haven't had any problems with them. So, here I am, pleasantly tired, and yet wide awake posting to my blog at 7:06 a.m. I did think about laying back down, but I know that I will just be more tired. So, what's the point? As long as I can do whatever I need to do, I'm fine. A shower will help, and I will be doing that shortly...ok, within the next couple of hours anyway. Before I go home, most likely. I have had a mostly peaceful time here. And I will be glad to get home. But I know from past experience, I will be there for a little while, and want to be somewhere else. It just means I'm restless, always seeking that peace within. I have found happiness within, a long time ago. But not peace within...there are times when I feel the peace like a gently flowing river. Or maybe the gentle (or not so gentle) surf on the beach. Then there is a silence around me, like a shield, regardless of how much noise there is present. I really need to analyze this in order to rectify the situation. No, lol, I'm not going to bore you to tears with my analyzing. That would be rather mean. Besides, it isn't for you, it's for me. It's also a private process.
I think I need to go to the mountains, and commune with nature, earth, universe, or who/whatever I need to talk to. Although it really doesn't matter where I am, or what's going on...the answer is within. I just need to ask, then listen. Gee, Hon, ya think? Yeah, I think. Regardless of how my life is at any moment, I'd rather be me than anyone else. I like to hang out with me, and I amuse myself sometimes. Egotistical? Or just damn sure of myself? The latter of course...I might not can count on anyone else, but I can always count on me. I get it done. Always have, always will. Be writing more later,
Peace and happiness,
P.S. To my daughters, if you ever read anything I write, know this: Where ever I am, whatever I'm doing, you are always in my heart and mind, and I love you, and miss you.
