The Enchanted Pond
Ok ... back for the briefest of brief moments ... the phone calls have already begun and .... never mind ... move on. Move on. Move on. Move on. Do you think if I say it enough, I can convince myself I can do it?
China? Well ... lonnnnnnnnnng story so I'll give you the abridged version. It is King Moonbeam's 50th birthday on the 24th and we are holidaying so that he can actually turn 50 whilst standing on the Great Wall of China (one of his dreams). We'll be in Shanghai first, then take a bullet train to Beijing, then some time up there and fly home again ... all via Hong Kong. There have been no end of dramas with this trip ... hence the phone ringing today too ... as we have had flights cancelled at the last minute by the air-line. I would really like the universe to just allow this family to have one thing ... just ONE thing good for a change. We have done the BS to death and don't deserve any more ... we've spent months doing the hard yards and have months to go yet. Anyway, we have just lost one day of our trip and not much I can do about that as all other air-lines are full. We're only going for 10 days and China is NOT my destination choice at all ... but, this trip isn't about me, it's for King Moonbeam and this is somewhere he's always wanted to see ... so, he will. Our daughter isn't coming and will look after the house and all the animals instead. She has a huge Psychology exam on on the day we leave anyway.
And now, I have to fly .... ha ha ha ha ha ... oh where is lear broom jet when I NEED her?????
May you all find deep calm to rest within today. I will be sending you wings to protect you.
I shall pop in to say good-bye on Friday but if I miss you Bloom and Laie .... then, I hope that your ride is awesome Bloom and that whhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeee is heard from those handle bars of yours. Go you & your gorgeous butt! And, I hope your Reiki class brings you even closer to your beautiful spirit Laie ... may you feel the Divine within you and may you unravel the next fabulous part of your journey to Oneness. Wishing you much healing, heavenly peace and a choir of Angels singing the Enchanted Pond song!
Icey Moonbeaming her butt to work.

oh i don't know the name has slip on by me little brain lol
I never thought china would have been your destination, but sometimes our Kings need to be pampered..
Good name laie has picked out queen and king moon beammm hehe
may calmness enter.
peace,light,love,hope,balance and laughter
YEs, dear ones, let calmness enter. I like that My Journey!
We lost one day when we went to Italy due to a big thunderstorm, and we couldn't take off from our home airport until the next morning, so we just drove home and tried again. BUT, after the second day in Italy, which was a perfect day in my book, I looked at my hub and said, if we had to go home tomorrow, after only two days here, it would be enough....I wish that for you Icey, dear dear one!
On the other hand, I TOTALLY get the frustrations and immense difficulty of coping with all of your levels of challenges to getting anything done. aGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!! I hope you DO keep your hard drive and keep it safe, and someday, if things change, you might be able to at least get your writings back? Don't know. Glad to hear that you have found some bits on discs. May your journey away be a wonderful break . I love traveling for those special moments. China will be so different, but we will all be interested in hearing about your experiences.
Yes, I will be leaving for AZ on Thursday afternoon. I'm not planning to bring my computer, but I will check back in on Sunday.
Gemmy, just enjoy the cold weather. I'm glad you like it. Did you get that snow that was on the news? Looks like a heavy dose there!! It can be quiet and beautiful, sitting inside, snug and warm and watching the world get a clean cover. Of course, digging out is always work, but I have usually enjoyed the first few storms. It gets old after a while, but the first ones are nice HUgs to you!
Lady Laie, thanks for thinking of me with the boys. Often it is an emotional catastrophe, but I think that is often because I get exhausted. Maybe the biking has helped me to be stronger. I will be thinking of your Reiki too. Practice now by sending me healing thoughts for my left leg, lol
Hugs from Bloom xoxo
Thank you Sunshine, I downloaded the Prelude in G minor Opus 23 # 5...you have me SMILING!! yahoo, I hope it takes me through a ton of reports today. On my iPod, the next song is Kermit the Frog singing the Rainbow song...love it!!
Have a good day everyone!!
Hugs from Bloom xoxo
No, didn't get the storm, in fact it's going to be 50 here today, as I had hunting season all turned around, it was duck hunting season, now it's deer hunting, and the great white hunters are all out in force, and I'm glad there is no snow now,,they can't track the deer. Sorry if that offends anyone, I just can't change how I feel about it.
I got a few sprinkles of snow yesterday when I walked, but just a very few.
It seems that I have a brain disconnect here for some reason, I can't seem to get it back into my body so I guess I will not be writing much until I can get my thoughts back together.
Just know that I am thinking of all of you and reading all that you write.
Hugs and blessings
I really don't know some of you that well but I have been following this thread and I'm so sorry to hear that things are in such turmoil in so many of your lives. My family too is going through physical and financial CRISIS and I worry that my mother can't take the stress of all of our problems.
Cactuss, Icearia, 10gemini and Sheila, among others, just know that it isn't just happening to you (not that that helps get the biils paid) and let's pray that things will turn around for ALL of us very soon.
YOU ARE LOVED!!!
Just have a good trip anyway..You need to get away, but if your like me, everything is still in you mind. I just can't seem to get mine back where it belongs, but I did want to tell you that I hope you will enjoy your trip and be able to relax. I will pray that God will be on your shoulder the whole time and watch over you and yours.
So, so sorry that you lost everything like that.. Specially the writings, now that would break my heart, so many things in life just do not seem fair, hard to understand, specially when they happen to good people.
Going to get ready for our walk now,,beautiful morning here, still cool out, crisp fresh air.
Love, hugs and blessings
I was overwhelmed with emotion and started to cry reading your post. Oh the fear of a 5! ---glad I'm alone and got it out of my system. : ) It was your emotion slamming into me… usually I can block, but instead, I'm experiencing what I call a weak moment today --- Yes, not what U would label Weak, you'd probably say Feel It, go with the flow of your Feelings! : > ) Well, feeling is good but when I'm overloaded it renders me useless. Someone said that feelings are like waves we can't stop them, but we can choose which ones to surf! Today-- Can't stand Mr. or Ms. Smarty-pants' quote-heehee!
Imagination is Infinite!!! Nothing can change the gifts you have to offer. What is meant to be given to the world will grow and you won't be able to contain or lose it, for that is what a gift is. During this time only the 'negative and old' will be shed for it is no longer needed. Think of pruning …. only the best is kept for strength and beauty.
China wouldn't be my first choice either. I feel the delay will be valuable in hindsight. I think thats what Bloom was trying to say also.
' Move On, Move On' ---stinky mantra!! Sometimes so is Let Go, Let Go! : ) I'll say it thrice, " May calmness enter"
Sorry not much help today …… just feeling down 4 u.
Part of me does understand, but I'm with you on hunting, even if words like conservation blah, blah are tossed about. I cringe and physically hurt. One of the things which kills me is bragging by hunters. I see anything dead or even injured automatically I say a prayer out of respect and honor for its life.
You alluded to it a few days ago and I wondered if we were having the same issue. I've been having the same going on …. brain disconnect among other things. I'm sure this doesn't help you in the least, but knowing someone else was experiencing this, helped me. Thank you for saying something! I can't put my finger on the cause. Lots of theories but nothing concrete …. we could just blame it on Icey's bored and bearded man!!! He's may really be putting 24/7 to good use!
Maybe something I discovered this morning will help you ….. I'm dehydrated. With the yard work you've been doing, walking and weather changes, you may need to increase your intake. I know we all joke about drinking, but just one on top of all the physical work you've been doing might've done it. Water can't hurt and we are always being told to drink more, right? ( H2O, not Jell-O, LOL!) Hope U feel better!
Absolutely LOVE Kermit's Rainbow song!!! On its own it makes me smile, but I've one of those Mom snapshot moments in my head of the first time hearing it with my kids. Frozen in time ….. All 4 sitting there smiling when it came on TV! Love that its on your iPod!
I think you do pretty darn well with the extended family of boys! Having a house-full, after a full work week ---- no wonder your emotions are on high volume! Pat yourself on the back!
LOL! Don't need certification to tap into loving energy, LOL ! Always sending out healing thoughts! WHEN i remember, ssshhh, : )here! It'll be a great way to focus what I do already. I've asked hubby to help me by letting me practice --- THIS OUGHTA B Interesting! He's asked me to practice on our Sheltie/Aussie Mix ---- ROFL! I'll have an easier time getting the Prince to relax!
Oh yeah, U 2 ---- Hydrate, hydrate! Safe journey enflight and pedaling!
Beautiful music, such great choices and loving soul energy shared! Thank you!
I just looked at my post to Cactuss after the shush/dl part it should've read heehee Not here. Forgot to fix the autocorrect, ahhh!
I hope the energy of today follows youeverywhere you go and with everything you do. May it send you higher than the ethereal realm of love and make your head spin in wonder and awe!
Hey, what a nice surprise! Lovely candle of light! And words of metatmorphis like the butterflies adorning it! Glad you're 'getting out', : ), dear one!

SWEET DREAMS TO ALL...GOOD MORNING ICEYYYYYYYYYYY
Wow! I have once again missed too much! Icequeenie sista!!! I am so sorry to hear about your computer crash! Such a loss! Let us send that evil wizard off on a learbroomjet to the moon forever!!
I hope you and hubby have a wonderful trip to China. How exciting and really , there is lots to see, too much. I have never been but daddy went with President Ford, I think it was Ford, when he was in the Air Force. Such funny stories he had. In those days, even an officer in the military had to eat and drink what was served as not to be rude. He said they drank something strong, alcohol, every time the big guns said "gambeh" Spelling? His General got wasted and siiiick,LOL! Just be careful of the food and drink!
Missing you and sending you big, huge moonbeam hugs!!
MyJourney siesta!!! Once again, you are cracking us all up, keeping us in stitches up in here! How did you know I knew how to fly,LOL???
Love the poem, so sweet!!! Now, where is my Otis? I need him to escort me back to the martini bar, it is time!!!
My son just played his playoff game in football tonight, they lost by just one touchdown, actually there was only one touchdown. What a nerve wracking game!! All without a drop of jello! LOL! I will continue to be busy with all of the 8th grade activities up until the end of the first week in December, so I don't know how often I will be here. It is crazy busy!! But, I sleep when I can, even in the day. Must be getting old, huh? Did I say that? I am tired! Ignore that remark,haha! I know, lack of cocktails made me say it!!
