I'm with you on the quiet time. Mine is at the end of the day, when I first get into bed I like to just lay there and think of nothing. Then a half an hour or so reading and I'm totally relaxed.



Peace and long life - Jules

Something that means a lot to me.....
Well, my quiet time at the beginning of every day. I get up, feed my cats, put on the coffee, and make my bed. I come back to the kitchen and make myself a protein shake to get the metabolism up. Then I sit down in my study area for a full 45-60 minutes of prayer and reflection before starting my day. I will soon be 77 years old and am still working, as well as playing music for up to three church services per weekend. I think my strength to do this comes from my quiet time.

You too mate. I've found that a nap during the day can work wonders, it doesn't have to be for long, but just enough to rest your body and mind

My brother has a pile of those B (or is that P) grade movies, some of those monsters are just pitiful, but funny. They definitely had some odd ideas back in the 50's and 60's didn't they?

I reckon a day's wasted without a laugh, life's too damned short to worry about everything

Anything that makes me laugh. The thing that means the most are the nights I curl up with hubby and watch cheesy sci-fi movies. You know the ones that aren't supposed to be funny, but when it is over your abs are really sore from laughing so hard!

Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.

At the moment I don't know my ass from my elbow, doctors and hospital appointments for my two brothers, battles with my power company and a ton of garden and house work. I seem to be running out of day.

I still try to find at least one thing to laugh at each day and I always endeavour to make my Spark pals laugh as well.

This team was one of the first I ever joined when I started here in 2008, most of the ratbags that were here then have passed on through, but I'm still here ..... is that saying something about me?

Exerpts of songs I love and that mean something to me, speak to me or of me:

Famous Last Words: My Chemical Romance
....So many
Bright lights to cast a shadow,
But can I speak?
Well, is it hard understanding I'm incomplete?
A life that's so demanding, I get so weak.
A love that's so demanding, I can't speak.

.....I am not afraid to keep on living,
I am not afraid to walk this world alone.
Honey, if you stay, you'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home.

.....Can you see my eyes are shining bright?
Cause I'm out here on the other side.
Of a jet black hotel mirror
And I'm so weak
Is it hard understanding I'm incomplete?
A love that's so demanding we get weak.

.....I am not afraid to keep on living.
I am not afraid to walk this world alone.
Honey, if you stay, you'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

.....These bright lights have always blinded me.
These bright lights have always blinded me.
I say.......
Hello
I see you lying next to me,
With words I thought I'd never speak.
Awake and unafraid,
Asleep or dead.

I'm Still Here: Johnny Rzeznik
I am a question to the world
Not an answer to be heard
Or a moment that's held in your arms

And what do you think you'd ever say?
I won't listen anyway, you don't know me
And I'll never be what you want me to be
.......
And I want a moment to be real
Wanna touch things I don't feel
Wanna hold on and feel I belong

And how can the world want me to change?
They're the ones that stay the same
They don't know me 'cause I'm not here
......

They can't tell me who to be
'Cause I'm not what they see
Yeah, the world is still sleepin'
While I keep on dreaming for me
And their words are just whispers
And lies that I'll never believe

And I want a moment to be real
Wanna touch things I don't feel
Wanna hold on and feel I belong

And how can they say I never change?
They're the ones that stay the same
I'm the one now 'cause I'm still here

Even the process of doing these things in your head NStar can be a changing point in your life.

We all have a lot to be grateful for, even though we all like to grumble about thngs sometimes. When most of us sit down and think about the good things (like just being alive and living in a wonderful country) we start to see just how much we really have.

A friend suggested I make a point of celebrating a very positive change in my life this weekend (the crazy neighbor is finally gone!)! She thought I could use a deliberate boost out of the end-of-winter blues. So, realizing that change AND finding Spark People AND a couple other wonderful processes are really GIFTS from the Universe, I have planned a simple meditation ceremony today to celebrate and do some serious appreciating of the gifts. I will also ceremonially unlock the patio gate and prop it open so me and my puppy can see out again (instead of being locked in so he can't be breaking things trying to get in!).

You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

I want to learn to meditate...my brain is so used to going into overdrive that at night sometimes I just can't sleep...I will listen to them when not at work...Thanks Jules!

She does have a lovely voice Beany, much easier on the ears than Stevie Nicks.

Can I share 2 of my "meditation" songs? They always make me feel at peace and centered.

Far be it for me to tell someone how to celebrate their Christmas.

I was saying to my brother the other day how lucky we are here in Australia.

He went to the doctor for iron deficiency and the doctor has referred him to a gastric specialist which he will see in January, covered by Medicare. All this just to make sure there is nothing untoward going on.

Wow! Sign me up for that! The 10th still seems like a long time to go without my hip being treated. What a way to spend the holidays. Now I have added a cold to it as well. Such is life.
The new year should provide many new adventures.

For our health insurance (Medicare) alone you can't find a better place than Australia. Never mind all the other things that are available for the populace.

If you go to hospital for a problem you get treated the same as anyone else and if you are on a pension/health card there are no hidden costs or extras you have to pay.

I love my country emoticon

I hate being treated like a second class citizen just because Medicare is the only insurance I have. They wouldn't even x-ray my hip in the hospital. I was in and out in less than 2 hours.
And the pain medication they gave me only lasted for 4 hours. And for this I'll get billed at least $1,300.00. I really didn't want to go but the pain finally won out.

I gave a gift to a friend yesterday - even though we agreed no gifts in our little circle this year - just because I bought it last summer being unable to resist. For what it's worth she is a ferret lover like me but can't have any just now. I gave her a little ferret toy that is needle felted and so very realistic. I just can't tell you how happy it made me to give it to her!

You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

A lot of older women stick with husbands because they don't have any skills to fall back on.

Years ago women were considered to be fit for housework and nothing else. There were no avenues for learing a skill or to amass a nest egg to fall back on. Young girls take it for granted these days that they can do what they want, it just wasn't so back in the 50's and the 60's.

Why are so many woman over the age of 50, afraid to leave their spouses? Do you think it has something to do with not wanting to start over again at that age - especially if they are currently housewives or have health issues?

I think it really stinks when a 92 year old woman, with 7 blood relatives right in the same city, has to have a daughter-in-law notice that something is not right with her. Her kids see her at least once a week and no one has noticed or mentioned a thing. What the hell is wrong with them? My DH, her son, sees her daily and never said a thing! Are they just waiting to collect her money when she dies but don't want to make her last days comfortable? Creeps!

I used to work for a guy who always thought that someone, somewhere was trying to rip him off.

I'm of the same teaching as you Val, money is another thing I'd sooner chop off my fingers than take what is not mine, but there are those who see nothing wrong with theiving and lying to suit themselves. I only hope that one day they are on the receiving end of a bit of theiving and lying.

I guess I was raised to trust others...and I raised my six kids to trust others...or at least give them the benefit of the doubt. It feels as though now we are guilty until proven innocent. And the customer is always right, even if it's obvious they are wrong. Thanks for letting me blow off steam...it was not a good week at work.

AGIRLCANDREAM - I live in a retirement community and I see that every day here. The manager always assumes her employees are plotting against her for some reason or another.
All the kids that serve in the dining room and all the housekeepers are constantly being watched by her. She changes employees faster than many people change their underwear. I think you have really stumbled on something that lots of us out here are seeing. I wonder if it is coming from the administration in Washington. Are they making us all feel so uneasy?

Ours was called Remembrance Day here.

The Vietnam War was for all the right reasons, but when you conscript young men to go overseas to fight and die and treat them like dirt when they come back, you are asking for nothing but trouble. The worst part is they abandoned the South Vietnamese to the North in the end and now they have trade deals with them. Our governments have NO shame.

The Korean war was a similar situation, but they called it a "police action". Funny how a war and a police action end up being the same thing. At least they never left the South to North Korea's mercy.

We had a Veteran's Day breakfast here today, not only for the veteran's and their wives living here but for those that signed up from the community as well. I got to talking to a retired General and he told me that the Vietnam era vets have more homeless and street people than any other war group. That was my era and that really bothered me. They called Korea the "forgotten war" but the Vietnam vets were the forgotten troops that were treated like crap when they came home. Their memorial wasn't built until years after the war was over. By that time, most of them were so bitter they didn't even care!

Definitely not in his butt, but a whiz around his pockets? yeah why not!!!

I always think that pets should be obtained at shelters etc. I don't know what they are like in other countries but over here in Australia they are temperament tested to make sure you are not getting an animal with behavioural problems.

In his butt or his pockets?

I also think everyone that wants a pet should adopt them from a shelter or talk to a local vet about abused animals. They often get put down because they don't know anything but pain when they can actually become wonderful pets. It's sometimes better to bring them into a home without other pets though. Sometimes it intimidates them otherwise and they can defensive again.

Wasn't Jeff Goldblum one of the pilots in "Independence Day" with Will Smith? If that was him, I think he's geeky cute but still cute - but then I used to have a thing for the guy that played "Hoss" on Bonanza.

I live in a place where you have to share a laundry room. I must be the only person here that believes in emptying the dryer vent when I am done. Can't lint build-up cause dryer fires? Perhaps I should have dh do the laundry and burn the place down!

Physically abused women can cover their bruises and often they just fade away. Mentally abused women are far more often, scarred for life.

Music is a powerful force for remembering, celebrating all that is good (and bad to a lesser degree) in our lives. It brings up such strong feelings and a song can mean something very profound.

Peace and long life - Jules

My husband and I lived common law for 15 years. We dated for two years previous. 7 days after we actual made our arrangment legal, my husband died in a car accident. One song that always reminds me of my husband is sung by Vince Gill.

Sage thoughts Stacy

More music here, something soothing with one of my favourites.

And then something to make you wake up and want to dance.

I LOVE that Dylan Thomas poem too. emoticon

Here's two quotes that mean a lot to me. They basically say "be you" and "love what you have not what you don't."

"To be upset over what you don't have is to waste what you do have." - Ken Keyes

"Remember that you are unique. If that is not fulfilled, then something wonderful has been lost." - Martha Graham

Hehe... Haha... LOL... LMFAO... Bwahaha... Muwahaha... :D... :P

Love that Dylan Thomas poem as well as the saying that we should die with our bodies used up and sinto life everlasting with a margarita (martini, wine, or pick your favorite libation) in one hand and chocolate in the other shouting WOOHOO, It has been one hell of a ride!

Music is a great way to chill out, I really couldn't live without it. Good ambient/relaxation music is the best for getting in the right frame of mind.

I do love this poem from Dylan Thomas, they say that his father was going blind when he wrote this poem. The dying of the light is a reference to darkness and being blind. It always seems to mean, to me, to mean to fight against death or at least going quietly.

What do you think?

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

That was indeed a beautiful piece of music. My friend Eddie recently put a whole stack of different music on my MP4 - including Gregorian chants - which he said are amazing when you're in the right mood for them. Coming home on the train unwinding could be the very time to give them a try!

Robbie Williams is very well know in Australia.

You'll notice that music is a big part of me, it always makes me feel at peace no matter whether it's ambient, world or some loud rock.

I loved the movie Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and even though this clip is supposedly from the movie the Hero, it was originally in the former. It is a beautiful piece of music wonderfully played by Yo Yo Ma on my favourite the cello.

Two very diverse and interesting choices. Mine is Robbie Williams singing 'Strong'. Don't think he's that well known outside of the UK (I could be wrong) but he's been to hell and back, more than once, with the help of drink, drugs and other addictions. Left Take That back in the 90's when they were the biggest British boyband to go solo and then try to make his mark in the USA. Several failed relationships later he's finally settled down with American actress Ayda Field (?), got married, re-joined Take That and seems happier than ever. This song reminds me of how vulnerable he was, and I can be.

How about a relaxing, healing pow wow song. This has a heartbeat behind it and is incredibly calming. I swear if you sit in a rocking chair you'll rock yourself to sleep. This makes me very calm and centred.

... And tell us about it.

It can be a poem... Song lyrics... A funny Website, as in something that makes you laugh...

Here's mine for today:

From "Beautiful" by Eminem
It reminds me that you shouldn't listen to what others say about you... Be you... Stay true to yourself... No matter what, you are beautiful. Why? Just because you ARE.

"...But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful woah
They can all get f****d. Just stay true to you so
Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful woah
They can all get f****d. Just stay true to you

Lately I've been hard to reach
I've been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world
Where they can be alone...
Are you calling me, are you trying to get through woah
Are you reaching out for me, I'm reaching out for you so

Yea... To my babies. Stay strong. Daddy will be home soon
And to the rest of the world, God gave you the shoes
That fit you, so put em on and wear em
And be yourself man, be proud of who you are
Even if it sounds corny,
Don't ever let no one tell you, you ain't beautiful" emoticon

Hehe... Haha... LOL... LMFAO... Bwahaha... Muwahaha... :D... :P
