hello old bean!
long time no see or hear from . . . as the saying goes.
you and i started back in the first of september ~ thanks to the wonderful
encouragement and expertise of our beloved captain fritter of the blog
he’s the pirate with a heart of gold.
don’t tell him i said that. he wouldn’t like it.
he thinks he’s wicked bad. LOL.
he set us up and we took off.
flying through the internet ether like a little comet with cops on our tail!
we posted every single day.
we dipped our toes in the precious stream of memories. over and over.
it’s so good to remember. yes.
but it’s even better to live in the now.
because the now is all we have.
and so peanut . . .
you and i are on a new course of “now”.
there will still be memories offered. they’re a part of us. and a good part.
but the best is just living every single day.
and i’ll be striving to do more of that “now” living! right now . . .
my now is filled with the most loving caring genuine people i think i’ve ever
and most of them i’ve never even met face to face!
i’ve had some not so good days the past few weeks.
the grand finish were the tests i took on thursday the 6th.
never again will i take the nuclear stress test to the heart.
the medicine doesn’t react well with my body. it feels as though you’re
dying a very painful death. they’ll just have to figure out what’s wrong
from this test. it’s the last of it i’ll EVER have!
am going to rely on good proper food and light exercise. meditation and
quiet times. and the fun of this blog! that will be enough.
and if whatever ~ well. que sera sera. it’s a good way to live.
a sensible sane happy way to live.
speaking of happy ways to live!!!!
the captain sent word to me that he has finished an e-book about living
in his beloved paradise ~ the florida keys.
i think ever since jimmy buffet hit the air waves . . . a lot of people have
had the quiet little dream in the back of their head . . . well someday . . .
someday i will ~ or better yet ~ we ~ will run away and live in the keys.
it is a quirky gorgeous paradise for sure. i came across his site quite by
accident. did you know that it’s a regular institution ~ every evening people
gather together to watch the glorious sunsets over the water.
if you listen really closely you’ll even hear . . . sssssssttttt!!! when the
magnificent sun hits the water.
his e~book is a tell-it-like-it-is manual for literally picking up and moving
to the keys. what to expect. what’s real. what isn’t. the real truth as you
need to know it for making that kind of change.
the captain is a straightforward man. there is integrity there.
and there is a wicked sense of humor and an even wickeder tongue.
but what do you expect from a rascal of a pirate! eh mateys?
anyhow . . . he has been SO GOOD to me and so patient with all my
techno questions and illiteracy . . . i wanted to have a link to his e~book
on the peanut. he’s a good pirate. and it’s a good book. it will be a
fun read whether you’re planning to go to paradise or not!
do check it out!
i’m just so glad to be back. it has been hard to stay away.
this post is getting way too long. so i will finally close it down. because . . .
i have reading to do!
i have to visit all your many posts that i’ve missed!
so . . .
peanut . . . til then old bean.
i’m off to visit all my friends.
my wonderful friends in
australia. canada. norway. oregon. california. new mexico. virginia.
new jersey. florida. arizona. india. new york. france profonde.
this internet neighborhood is so amazing.
each of us with blogs have our own huge circle of friends that wish us
peace and good will.
just think. these huge circles are all connecting with each other all over
this little blue planet.
maybe. just maybe . . . there could be peace on earth after all.
til then old bean.
