Macrocosm vs. Microcosm

When is it, do you think, we realize that what we each independently experience isn’t so different than what others have experienced? My, my…that was a deep thought. I began this post last night and I’ve no idea where I was going with all those Macrocosm vs. Microcosm notions…I’m certainly not in that headspace this … Continue reading Macrocosm vs. Microcosm


When Mr. Al and I begin an adventure, we like to pick a word as the armature for our mindset. Meaning…what do we want to focus on, what do we want to experience, how do we want to feel each day. For several adventures, the word(s) was “Easy Peasy.” On this adventure, we wanted to … Continue reading Delighted

Beyond Words

Just a really good day… A tease of a day…because it’s raining … again.  I was planning to plant … Continue reading Geez…

Fire Hose of Love

There’s so much mental turmoil being stirred up these days. Like someone turned over a log and all the creepy crawlies are scattering this way and that. And sensitive people feel it…feel all the anger, the angst, the fear. It compounds, feels like an unstoppable wave of yuck. Triggers our own fears. And there seems … Continue reading Fire Hose of Love
