Collective Consciousness

Cardinal on a snowy day

I found an interesting philosophical writing by someone on social media who uses an anonymous name. I’d like to give them credit for it, but I don’t know who it is that wrote it.

Chemical Attack

I have a covid story to tell.

This was a frightening experience for me, and I’m emotional as I type this out.

In the first part of this blog post, I’m going to share my experience with having covid-19, and how I caught it. This will be much longer than my usual.

Birthday Celebration

During a time long forgotten, when life was still normal and humans didn’t have to wear masks, people were able to hold surprise birthday parties.One year ago today, we held an 80th birthday surprise celebration for my mom. The picture above is when she first walked into the room.

Bloggers, Dreams, and Outings

Well hello there. I hope this blog post finds you well.Last week we took some time off to enjoy the fall weather.

Each little outing we attempted started out with mishaps. I mean mishaps to the point where we almost gave up and said, forget it, let’s not do it.We plunged forward anyway, and each outing turned out perfect.For one of our outings we entered an enchanted forest. Or at least it felt that way.I wondered if talking critters and pixies might approach us at any moment.What does this have to do with bloggers and Dreams, like the title says?

Nothing. I’m changing subjects now.

Lately, I’ve found myself having dreams about my blogger friends. In one dream, I was at some sort of a bloggers convention. Anneli was there, and so was Angela.I remember asking Anneli (in the dream) if I was pronouncing her name correctly.

I also remember asking Angela how she was doing after having to say good by to her beloved Sunburst, the horse.

A few more of you were also there, but I couldn’t make out who was who. One seemed like she might’ve been Kate and the other Kathy.

This has happened before, dreaming about bloggers, and it tells me that you’ve all had a significant influence in my life, and I thank you.I may be scarce (or in and out) in the blogging world in the coming days. Hopefully I’m wrong, but I fear there are some tense days ahead. We’re going to need to take special care during the coming days.

Everyone stay safe and well.

The Best of Everything

With all that’s going on in the world, my husband and I like to escape to a different era by watching Turner Classic Movies. We recently enjoyed a classic that we learned was the basis of a television series which aired in 2007-2015. This got me to comparing the two, and how they portrayed their characters.

Have you ever heard of the 1959 movie, The Best of Everything?
