My dad returned from WWII a little shell shocked. Many did. He managed his physical pain with 60-80 Tylenol-4 a day, the emotional pain with alcohol. I can’t imagine the pain he was in. We didn’t make it easy for him. We certainly didn’t give him the respect he deserved. He loved long walks but back and hip problems kept him from them. He shot himself at age 62. In a coma in his final weeks. I’d call and the night nurse would tell me, “he’s marching.” I hope he was enjoying his long walks again. Today, I’m honoring all who served. They gave more than we’ll ever know.
This won’t be popular but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. We humans are so funny. God permits all things to happen. Trying to control behavior, we make up rules contrary to human nature then say this is what God wants. Like this: “God will never send you someone else’s husband.” Sure He will, it happens all the time. God doesn’t care about the pieces of paper we think are so important. He’s about intent and vibrational matching. God wants for us what we want for ourselves. Whatever we begin, he’ll fuel as long as we stay focused. He fuels wherever we focus.

Finally the temps have dropped and it’s cooler in the early mornings. Something about the crisp cool air makes me want to get moving and be outside in it. I used to spend a lot more time in my yard, walking the trails, sitting at the firepit. Then I let myself get derailed for a few years when a troubled friend began showing up uninvited. A former neighbor, he knew my habit of meandering in my woods at all hours. He doesn’t recognize boundaries, so he’d walk right in. Then he moved a mile away and I’d see him walking Emerson Road 3 blocks over, looking buzzed. Each time, I’d stay inside for a few days after, just in case. It became habit to stop hanging in the yard, not knowing when he’d show up or was even there, unseen. Whenever I went outside I’d wonder if he was lurking like the old days. I got used to living back inside the house and missed the joy of being outside at all hours. A self imposed exile since I couldn’t get it out of my thoughts. Continue reading
There is so much that can be told from your astrology chart. Besides everything you would ever need to know to have the best life possible, it can show your karma and past lives. Basically, your horoscope is divided into 12 equal segments, called “houses.” Each house represents a department of life, such as self-image and will, money and security, friends and communication, home and family, health and duty, partners and committed relationships, secrets, travel and education plus spiritual attitudes, public image and highest goals, friends and social life, karma and hidden things.
The 1st house shows your ascendant and it is the basis of the chart reading for this life. However, if the wheel is turned one house down, the 12th becomes the 1st house for a past life, not necessarily the immediate past, but one that you are working out issues from now.
As planets move through the zodiac, they pass from sign to sign. Each zodiac sign rules a different part of the human anatomy. Planets interacting with the signs may reflect what is going on with the different body parts.
Aries Rules the Head
Taurus Rules the Throat
Gemini Rules the Arms
Cancer Rules the Hands
Leo Rules the Heart
Virgo Rules the Stomach
Libra Rules the Kidneys
Scorpio Rules the Pelvis
Sagittarius Rules the Thighs
Capricorn Rules the Legs
Aquarius Rules the Ankles
Pisces Rules the Feet

When they say a hurricane is 500 miles wide and 185 mph, that doesn’t mean the entire storm is moving 185 mph. Example
Hurricane Irma in Sept 2017, the eye was 60 miles in diameter. A FEW MILES OUTSIDE of that is where the 185 mph winds are. NOT all 500 miles. Hurricane Irma downgraded below a Cat 1 as she crossed land — as they do — here in Melbourne/Palm Bay we got 60 mph winds and 90 mph gusts. Florida is only 160 miles wide so we all got high winds for the maybe 12 hours it took her to pass. I’ve lived in Florida all my life and I’ve been through several hurricanes and tropical storms. It’s easy to get caught up in the news hype about approaching storms, so I like to have a reminder here on my blog of the notable storms I most recently recall. My worst experience: Continue reading
Feel free to share. I love it when a handsome man gets me OUT of bed! I came across Jamie Coulson‘s comment about anxiety and depression and found his FB group Don’t Fuel It, Cool It, about managing post traumatic stress. He’s allowing me to reprint from his writing, here is a preview. And if you’re interested in helping friends manage anxiety, check out his group. “I’m not a therapist,” he says, but he’s helped me already. https://www.facebook.com/groups/857631804381403/
