hi ladies. just checking in from the beach. thanks for all the wishes...we arrived safely and have had a wonderful week. I miss my life at home, though, that's for sure. It's weird, i guess I live pretty sheltered from greater society or something -- it's hard to understand how disconnected from the Earth so many people are... i'm such a recycling/reusing "tree hugging dirt worshipper" for the most part eating a mostly vegetable diet, yadda yadda (like I have to explain it here) and to be here and see such mass consumption and disregard not only for fellow humans but for the Earth is so odd.
What is really cool, though, is watching the ocean worship! Everyone just standing at the shores playing and in awe of something so much greater than they are. I keep thinking of the goddess Sedna - especially when we see the dolphins swim by - it reminds me of the balance of the Earth and the give and take of life. Anyway...
revolting- big hugs to you, my friend, i hope this month turns around for you. dang cars! i had mine stolen a few years ago and what a pain in the hiney!
happy birthday to Aubergine, Millie, Heckedy and all the August-born mamas!!!
i love hearing about everyone's healthy goals for their lifestyles. I think I gained everyone's weight while here. (and enjoyed every dang hershey kiss/m&m I devoured!!)
And Maia- yes, my name is after the onion...and the sammy kershaw song. My dad and I were traveling together in 1996 and we heard the song whose protagonist is named Vidalia. It begins "ain't nothing so precious as a first born child" and goes on to talk about how vidalia always makes the boys cry and gave one kid hell because they picked on her name... and my dad said that the song always reminded him of me (true). So, I asked him how we'd spell it and it became my "handle" as they called internet nicknames back in the day. *phew* that was a long explanation. Also, I'm with everyone else - love the hair.
Happy Friday and enjoy the full moon! I've read about some of you putting water out for the full moon and was wondering if anyone could tell me what you do with it/the significance for you/ how you do it. I hope that makes sense.
