MERRY DECEMBER 25th 2005!!!!
from wistful-blue :
I may not like Live Journal enough to keep a diary there, but I like *YOU* enough to have an account so I can keep up with your (mis)adventures. :-) I'm now (oh-fish-ee-alley) "whisper_of_blue". -cat
from wistful-blue :
Um, I tried posting this in your comments section, but it said I was banned. If I said something hurtful or offensive, I'm terribly sorry. This is what I original posted in response to your most recent entry: I'm sorry about things not working out school/loan wise. You'd think with our revered president's "commitment" to family and education, he'd be more interested in government initiatives promoting and supporting people who are married, have children and trying to obtain college degrees, while continuing to work and provide for their FAMILIES. Here's hoping that sanity returns and your brow unfurrows soon. *Hugs*
from greenwitch :
I wrote, I went out into the night to play with Kali, the cat and came back in to your note. Thank you, deeply, truely, thank you.
from iceweasel :
the irony is that i feel the same way about lies... my (entirely inadequate) defense is that it's been more a witholding of truths than an outright lie, but that doesn't excuse it any. and then, as you say, finding out you've been lied to casts doubt on future interactions, which only complicates the process of setting things right. still, i made my own bed here. and i will make it right. eventually. hopefully sooner, rather than later. thank you for your input on that. sometimes i need a gentle push to take the actions i already know are right. ... on an entirely unrelated note, may i please have the password to your diary? i keep contemplating going over to lj, just for your writing, but haven't yet.
from f-i-n :
just dropped by...saying hi
from sapphyr :
HAHAHA! Your note was a riot! "WMDs?!" I LOVE IT! Thanks for the laugh :~D ~Sapphyr
from r-y-r :
I just wanted to stop by and thank you for your note. I really appreciate it, it gives me something to smile about and some hope. Thanks for always writing and being so nice.
from loner-blues :
*Sigh* You've pretty much left Diaryland, haven't you? I can't really blame ya; service here sucks and it's not like I'm doing such a stellar job with updating. Just miss your entries...that's all; and I'm not a big fan of LJ, though I can see how it's format would appeal to others. Oh, no need to reply to this either...my notes sectionn's kinda "closed" right now. :-) -cat
from absinthesigh :
Hi! I finally have my new diary up and running: http://eidola.journalspace.com/ and am putting together my list of favorite links and wanted to ask if it was okay with you if I add your diaryland diary to that list... please let me know of that is okay with you when you have a moment. Thanks! with love, ophelia
from bindyree :
Ohhh! Happy buttwiggling footie dance!! Congratulations to Jeff!
from boxx9000 :
Happy Happy Mom's Day! ♥
from elgan :
Happy Mother’s Day!
from loner-blues :
Everytime I try to leave this as a "comment," Diaryland spits it into the void, so I'm posting it here: when I read that the new pope had announced his intention to "reach out" to people of "all faiths," my first thought was: Huh, I wonder if he's including pagans in that "all faith embrace." My guess would be not. :-)
from bindyree :
Sunday morning's musings have struck a chord. I keep thinking if more Christians were actually Christians, the world would be a more peaceful place. Generally they all start out peaceful and pleasant, and then when they find out my path, they either send me to Coventry or put me on a Jesus email list. I'm not broken and yet I am treated as if I must be fixed. Sigh. No thanks. :-)
from kilowatt :
"Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can." ~ The Dalai Lama ~ I wish you a flashlight to softly illuminate all the obstacles that you can, if you choose, now dissolve within your life. I wish you a magical department store where you can shop for new possibilities. I wish you a very, very big shopping bag (made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials of course) to bring all those possibilities home. May you walk the trail of self-kindness and enchantment that involves accepting constant change and embracing your process of shedding. May you keep shedding: unhealthy relationships, unfulfilling responsibilities, negative programming and thoughts, boring and unhealthy habits. May all of your shedding be an exhilarating process that results with a more fine-tuned and burnished you. And remember: In you, I gaze upon a divine creation, a bold soul, and a splendid woman. May you bask in the brilliance of your dazzling reflection today.
from loner-blues :
No, I didn't get your e-mail. Let me make sure you've got the correct address: [ winsomeblue@gmail.com ]. *I* got confused for a while there and kept typing in "blues" instead of "blue." I *really* don't want to see what my brain is like in twenty years. Scary. -cat
from r-y-r :
I have been trying to get ahold of you since you emailed me your story, but using comments lately for me is a lost cause. I just thought you should know it was absolutely beautiful, I really enjoy reading what you write and cant wait until you complete a book and get published in a magazine, although, I enjoy it as much when you email the stories, I cant be selfish and you definetly should me making a living out of your talent
from sapphyr :
Your last entry about bed time sounds so fun and sweet. It made me miss my own daughter's baby days so much which made me smile. Thank you! ~Sapphyr
from bindyree :
Thank you for your naked and vividly written descriptions of your ritual work; I am honored to lay eyes on the words, and I wish I had the courage to write the way you do. Again, humbly -- thank you. :)
from loner-blues :
The perks of Gold Membership: locking your diary (temporarily) to make layout changes, only to find it won't UNLOCK once you're done. ARGH! LOL Anyway, until such time as Andrew sees fit to deal with the problem -- USERNAME: fucked, PASSWORD: over. Hope you're enjoying your retreat. -cat
from r-y-r :
I have been trying to leave a comment on the last couple of entries, but it has been impossible, so I thought I would leave a note to let you know that I got your interview, and will be getting to it shortly, plus I wanted to wish you a great weekend getaway, enjoy yourself and the piece and alone time and come back with great stories.
from sapphyr :
LOL! "REMEMBER AL GORE'S MACRENA?" That was the best! I would love to see a sunset there if it isn't too much of a bother. Have a wonderful retreat. Fondly, ~Sapphyr
from loner-blues :
Okay, I tried twice to sign you comments section regarding your most recent entry but for some reason, neither note took. So I'm posting the second one here. (This is for you entry on 3/36/05): Damn, I don't think my comment went up. ARGH!! While I feel for Andrew, I am getting a wee bit frustrated with the inability to leave comments. Anyway, I left a note saying there's no reason to feel guilty for imagining what it would be like to have freedom from the obligations of being a wife and mother. Show me a wife/mom who's never felt that way, and I'll show you a Stepford Wife. It is entirely healthy, natural and NECESSARY for you to maintain your own life and cultivate your own interests, otherwise what happens when the girls do grow up and move out? You'd have nothing to do! Maybe right now, it's just a matter of engaging in pursuits that you're absolutely BURNING with passion to pursue. The others can wait until your schedule eases up...as the girls get older and become more independent and involved with their own lives. I know, unsolicited advice...bad Cat. I'd just hate to see you run yourself ragged trying to be everything to everyone (including yourself). I absolutley agree that you must take time for yourself and your interests, just not at the expense of your health and/or sanity. :-D So...what two or three (extra-cirricular) activities can you not imagine giving up right now?
from eggsaucted :
Thanks for listing me as a favourite!
from iceweasel :
Truthfully mostly I *do* agree with you anyway, which makes me appreciate even more the way your entries will sometimes cause me to turn issues around in my head (if I haven't already done so) and consider them from (one of) the other side(s). I keep meaning to come up with my own book/movie/music suggestions and questions, but the questions I come up with are either being answered day by day, or else I'm sure the answers are already somewhere in your diary, in the entries I haven't read yet. Rather than make you repeat yourself, I'm procrastinating... but will get there soon!
from wildforests :
Would love an interview :)
from loner-blues :
I just finished reading...probably leading you to wonder if I ever turn off my computer and leave the house. :-D
from loner-blues :
I hope these questions are up to snuff...1) When did you first become interested in the practice of witchcraft? What about it appealed to you? When and why did you chose to become a Reclaiming witch? Are you raising Gabby and Nina in the Wiccan tradition? Why or why not? 2) You wear so many different hats: wife/lover/mother/daughter/friend/witch/writer/activist/dancer/working woman; what is it like to fill so many roles? Does one (or more) ever conflict with another? How do you balance or maintain focus with so much going on in your life? 3) Though nothing can ease the grief of losing Jasmine, what are your outlets for that pain? Does Jasmine herself (or possibly, her spirit) play a role in any of these methods? 4) You and Jeff have been together for a long time now; how has your relationship changed over the years? ( I.e., from high school sweet hearts to young newly weds; married couple without children to married couple with children, etc). 5) What has keeping an online journal done for you as a writer? What effect has it had on a more personal level? Does pursuing writing as a career still appeal to you? Why or why not?
from loner-blues :
OH YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES!!! *Major happy dance ensues* Ahem, pardon me. :-D It's just...I was kind of hoping you'd ask me to interview you because I've had some questions brewing for a while. Just give me a little time to come up with the last two...I want to make sure they're worthy of you. -cat
from sapphyr :
Hi! I wanted to write a note to say, "Thanks" for adding me to your favourites list. I appreciate your readership. I visited your diary and was amased! You have a beautiful story and family. I look forward to reading more. ~Sapphyr
from strangerlucy :
I'm rootin' for you, toots (in general, sure- but this time regarding the second interview). thanks for keeping me around despite my lack of dlanding lately. i'm hoping spring brings posting inspiration my way :)
from make-it-stop :
I just wanted to say that I am sorry I have not completed the interview yet. I will probably not be writing *anything* for a while. I am dealing with some major personal drama but I hope to be back up and going soon. Thank you for the wonderful questions...
from linusthegirl :
Did you get my address? I'm just asking, because I have visions of inadvertantly sending my address off to the wrong email, and getting a kitten head in the mail. Or something equally awful like that, because I don't blow things out of proportion. Nope. Not me.
from harri3tspy :
Thanks for replying anyhow. I never figured out who posted about it, but I think I found the book. I've been having the same problem with notification. I received notification of your note, but found half a dozen others there that I hadn't seen. Grr.
from kilowatt :
In an attempt to respond to the most glorious comment of appreciation that I received from you, I slipped into my hand-knitted gratitude socks, nestled into my sweater of personal reflection, slipped on my silk-lined coat of clarity, and glided my hands into my acceptance gloves. Still lacking the adequate words to construct an eloquent and lyrical reply, I partook of a mental stroll into the wilderness to assist in anointing my thoughts with words and images of gratitude. Your resplendent comment of appreciation eradicated any traces of hostility and negativity that I had previously received from others. I thank you for your exquisite thoughtfulness and consideration, spreading adoration like rose petals in an effort to wipe clean any pointless verbiage from others. Ms. Ilmomof3, you are an absolute delight! For today, I wish you a peace that is transmitted to each cell in your body. And may you listen to the specific high, clear notes of your soul.
from thedetails :
I hate that I'm so connected to the computer all the time. I don't know if I'm an addict (My Hubby is) but I know that I'd have a hard time giving it up if I had to.... guess that makes me an addict!
from iceweasel :
I just wanted to leave a note to say how much I'm enjoying your diary - I'm working my way slowly backwards from where your banner ad dropped me in, and am constantly delighted, inspired and moved by how evocative, courageous and engaging your writing style is. Thank you for sharing your life this way.
from loner-blues :
Oo! Oo! I love that title, especially "Missives from the Front Lines..."! That would make a FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC non fiction book! And you are absolutel the perfect person to write it! Ooooooo! Now I'm excited. Oh gosh! I just realized I was supposed to post my answers to the interview in your comments section. Darn it. They're so long though, sheesh! I don't want to take up that much space!
from bettyalready :
Your banner has that SAND font which I've only found on MAC's and my MAC is dead. Which means no more banners with my favorite SAND font.
from luvabeans :
hey, know what? you should check out stitchnbitch.org. the way i understand it, there are crafty groups set up all over the country ... if a group is posted, there's pretty much an open invitation to anyone who wants to attend. my friend set one up, (it's the one i go to,) and last week, two women attended who'd read about it on the site. these women didn't know any of us, but they had a great time and are planning to return, as far as i know. thanks for reading!
from momma-at-17 :
They are tough questions. However despite of that here are my answers: 1) Where the heart is ? Billie Letts. This book is one because I can relate very much so to the lead character Nova Lee. In the book she is a 17-year-old girl who finds herself pregnant and then her boyfriend, also the father, abandons her when he gets the first chance. Yet she comes across people who care for her despite what happened to lead her to that point. In my opinion the book is way, way, way better than the movie. Twister- This movie because I always wanted the type of relationship that could last through anything. And even though mine can't seem to last through a pregnancy I still hope that some day I could find someone that even though at times I may hate them with a passion, but when it all comes down to them the relationship that has been built can withstand that. Thirteen- This movie because even though I wasn't thirteen it really showed how fast things can get out of control if you let it, and it shows how hard it really is to get out of a lifestyle that you have created for yourself yet you don?t like. I know how hard it is to get out of things like that. Baby Love- Catherine Anderson- This book because it shows that even as a single mother there are people out there who will love you. Just because you are a mom doesn't mean your life is over. It is just the beginning of a wonderful new journey. I hope that I can overcome my fears as well as the young mother in this book. The Magical House of Zur- ???- This book because it is a book that my grandmother left me in her will. She was such a strong woman and was my role model and I always try harder knowing that she is watching, I don't ever want to let her down. Every time I read this book it reminds me that you don't have to be perfect to be accepted. You just have to be yourself. 2) I started blogging at Diaryland during a very rough time because I needed some way to get my emotions out without feeling weak for expressing them. That way I could get them out and those who meant most would know what was wrong, but that way it was easier to be strong for myself and those that I care about most. 3) In five years I want to be at a successful point in my life. For my child whom is currently on the way, also for myself. It may sound weird but I don't want to end up one of those teen mom's who feels resentment towards their child for any reason. I want to make a good life for myself as well as my baby. 4) The most exciting thing that has ever happened to me still has yet to come. I don't have all that many memories that I like to remember. Although thinking back it was probably December 9, 2004 when I got to see my baby for the first time at my first ultrasound. 5) The word "mother" means to me someone that would un-blinkingly sacrifice anything and everything for her child. Some one who is filled with the most unconditional love anyone could have. Possibly one of the happiest people on the earth, because no matter how rough times may get all a mom has to do is look at her baby and remember that it is all worth it for that amazing little miracle. Now I am curious... What does the word "mother" mean to you? If you don't mind my asking.
from pharseer :
I'd actually joined WW before & lost 100lbs, then quit b/c of my nervous breakdown. Now I've gone back & am trying to get to goal, but it's much harder this time around. (isn't it always? *g*)
from momma-at-17 :
Hmmm those are toughies. Would you like me to answer in here or my diary? That's the only question I've got if you don't mind. Other than that I will have your answers however I've got to think a little bit.
from so-heartfelt :
Found you on Blog Explosion! I like your site! mollie
from winterfire79 :
seems like there is more to you than being a dreamer of yellow fields and sunshine. you show alot of yourself in your open-diary. am i wrong? it's lovely. your mind moves faster than wind through trees, yet still can keep the train of thought from wrecking. I respect that full-heartedly. i have written life scenarios in many forms. down to ridiculous quotes ... like, killing for peace is like f**king for chastity. i have a need for dependance in writing. minds can be crowded spaces pending akin to a storm. just avoiding insufficiant self-indulgence. send a note back if you like. c.j.c.
from momma-at-17 :
I saw your diary through a banner and came across the Interview Me entry and I thought that it sounded really interesting. Also if you don't mind I think that I will keep reading because your writing has intrigued me.
from pandionna :
Clicked the cracked banner for ya! :-)
from bindyree :
You're welcome, sweetie! Your diary is lovely! Just like you. :-) Merry parts and blessed bees. :)
from elysium1982 :
well congratulations on keeping up/doing well with your diet. =)
from loner-blues :
Awww thank you Monica. I'mma tryin' to be good. :-D I'm so glad you like the cards! I thought they might appeal to you kitschy, as well as your witchy sensibilities. ;-) Just my way of saying thank you for the Gold Membership. YOU rock sista!
from foxgallagher :
thanks :)
from loner-blues :
"I think I see...a nipple." LOL I want to live in Europe where it's perfectly natural and healthy to acknowledge the fact that we have BODIES! -cat
from kilowatt :
I thank you once again for your aptly phrased and well-timed words of sympathy, encouragement, and support. I am honored by the time and energy you invested in writing me such heartfelt, touching, and compassionate comments. I thank you for your extreme thoughtfulness and generosity. May your day brim over with beauty.
from kilowatt :
The only words I can conjure up at this juncture in response to the compassionate and considerate expressions of your exquisite nature are "Thank You." Each word you left me is most appreciated. Your tremendous encouragement and sympathy uplifted me. Furthermore, I thank you for all of the beauty that is within you that you so freely share with others. ~ May you spend at least some moments this weekend to bask in a spirit of thankfulness for your own brilliance, levity, indefatigability, playfulness, and radiance! "Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened. Don't open the door to the study and begin reading. Take down the dulcimer. Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground." ~ Rumi in Open Secret ~ May your day consist of inexplicable, exuberant, and buoyant joys, such as sliding down a hardwood floor in your socks, freely dancing along to your favorite song in your living room, enjoying the effervescence of a bubble bath, performing cartwheels in your yard, and playing a game of tag with your children. May your evening consist of dancing in dappled moonlight, dreaming under a canopy of midnight blue, and wishing on your favorite star. I thank you again for your exquisite thoughtfulness and compassion.
from r-y-r :
Thanks, I appreciate it!!!
from loner-blues :
Thank you Monica! I'm not able to use Yahoo! Messenger at the moment, but as soon as I get the new comp (which should be within a matter of weeks) I will d/l the program. I'm not on AOHell that much right now because it's hit or miss with my lemon but my s/n is my last name. (You remember it right? If not, leave me a note and I'll e-mail it to you). -catbert
from cats-corner :
I'll be starting a new diary when I get back next Monday: "loner-blues," not nearly as depressing as it sounds. Tell no one. :-) -cat
from make-it-stop :
My husband and I, too, are at the "last step". It's funny that you worded it like that because that is how I've been thinking of it. I've been seeing someone on my own but I'm sure we will both be going soon. I don't see any other option. It's make or break time. Shit...it just sucks. I understand. That's all I really wanted to say. And thanks for the really nice note.
from elgan :
Honey, we all have those “lucid” moments when we see the futility of our lives, the meaninglessness of life and don’t see why we should prolong the inevitable, that eventually we will all be brought home in a wooden box and that is that. And yet, the rest of the time life is good and we have so much to be thankful for and to enjoy. Human beings never asked to evolve into sentient beings, able to contemplate their own existence, but since it happened, we may as well make the most of it and live in beauty. For that is what we are truly capable of, finding the beautiful in the mundane. *hugs*
from creda :
Yeah, I definitely thought of the boo-bah connection when I saw what they were called. I wonder if that's how they got their name?
from elgan :
I should warn you, the Diaryland chatroom attracts a lot of 13-year-olds and the cry of "asl?" is heard across the land. But you can still meet some interesting people there. Thanks for your note.
from candoor :
happy new year :)
from foxgallagher :
My layout needs some improving, but thanks! =P
from thekirks :
I'm sorry this happened to you again:( Nevertheless, I hope you have a happy new years. I have something I'd like to send you having to do with Jasmine if that's okay. Just let me know.
from make-it-stop :
"High Fidelity" was the last that I read of his. After reading "How to Be Good" and "About a Boy" I was terrified of being let down by his most hyped book. His wit and humor makes me want to go back and reread paragraphs just to soak the words in again one more time.
from zingerbabai :
hi, i dont personally k now you, but i saw a thing for your diary and i thought i'd read it. i absolutly love it...it definatly gives me a lot of food for thought. i just thought that'd i compliment you! yay! emily
from thekirks :
Just wanted to wish you a happy holiday!
from hothead :
thank you so much for your lovely comments...this is a hard time of year for those of us who have lost someone we loved so much. hope the holidays are good ones for you, considering... love, hothead.
from absinthesigh :
I just re-wrote my entry with more quotes from Joss if you wanna go back and read more 8-). I think the photo was taken in the beginning of the shoot and Book and Inara were not filming yet. ARE YOU DYING TO KNOW BOOK'S REAL STORY OR WHAT??? cough cough sorry... got carried away... sniff. with love, ophelia
from myownjourney :
Thanks for the note. I like to read other peoples thoughts on things even when they are completley different from mine. I think we are on totally opposites sides of most everything, and that's not a bad thing. There is always something familiar and can be related to in everybody. So, yeah, that's why I linked you. I find you interesting, not in spite of the fact that your a "wiccan" and a liberal but maybe because of it? :) Anyway, as they say, I believe in your circles, "merry meet"[?] :)
from boxx9000 :
MJ - I have nothing of *ours* the EX took EVERYTHING! (not an exaggeration either) I am wearing a scissors gold charm around my neck (cut all ties) Maybe a voodoo doll (revenge) But, I really want to move on and put DISTANCE between us. I have heard it takes HALF the number of years to get over a relationship. Half of 25 is 12 years and 6 months. Will I live that long?
from elgan :
Happy Birthday, dear. Thirty-four seems so young to me now. Enjoy it!
from elysium1982 :
happy birthday beautiful!
from foxgallagher :
Thank you. I take it you're like me and very opinionated against Bush, eh? :P
from absinthesigh :
*H*A*P*P*Y* *B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y*!!!!!!!!! with love, ophelia
from grngrl75 :
Hi hon..just wanted to respond to your comment in my other diary. I'm not worried about having the baby because of what you thought..it's because I lost my first baby due to severe preeclampsia. I just hope it all goes smoothly next time! Thanks so much for leaving a note!
from cats-corner :
Hi MJ, I just wanted to let you know, I *did* get your comment on tonight's (12/10) entry...I'm having problems with HaloScan though (ARGH!) and I had to take the comments thing down. Hopefully I'll be able to figure out how to make the stupid thing work. Ah, how I love technology! :-) Oh, and thank you so much for the comment about my diary in your profile! I'm very flattered. -cat
from hissandtell :
Oh! How is your knitting, darling? Someone sent this to me this morning, and I immediately thought of you: http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTwomb.html (I'm planning on having some made up for Yule tree ornaments.) Love, R xxx
from absinthesigh :
ack ack! Yes I heard about Serenity!! sob weep gasp. I have oodles of banners and they al have the wrong date on them. I am working on an interview to post from Joss... it has some *amazing* (and hopefully not too old news) revelations about the plans he had had for the characters of Buffy before he had to end the show because of Sarah leaving. with love, ophelia
from kilowatt :
In a random twist of fate, I discovered your dairy and I lingered to read your words. The poet, Ruiz says every human is an artist, "and the supreme art is the expression of the beauty of our spirit." There is an effortless elegance emanating from your writing that I cannot help but admire and adore, so much so, that I was compelled to add your diary to my list of favorites. "Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~ I hope that your day will be a delightful adventure of bliss, laughter, discovery, satisfaction and inspiration. I thank you again for the pleasure of reading the expression of your "beautiful spirit".
from grngrl75 :
Thanks for the suggestion! I guess I've just been too lazy to do that, but I need to start..hehe.
from treesssa :
Nope I didn't get a reply from Andrew yet. Hopefully soon. I did recieve a couple of comments through mail that are 2 days old today. So maybe its just something with the server here. I'll let you know, when I get a reply.
from elgan :
I was so nice to see you had added me and to read that incredible comment. You make me blush! I shall be adding you forthwith.
from brucegirl :
So you're almost finished with your Christmas shopping too. Good to hear. It's fun to shop, but when you don't know what to buy and the person don't have any wishes, it can be... bleh! I solved one problem today - phew!
from might-could :
Hi, thanks for your nice note. I thought of what I said earlier and really, truly, YOUR diary was not the place for that comment. MY diary is! : ) I am (believe it or not) considered extremely tolerant but that's because I do a lot of work to be so with others. In my diary, my head, I *do* get angry and think lots of things. Mulling them around, the angry with the sweet, helps make me the Human Girl I'm trying to be!
from poetlucia :
I just wanted to say the bible is truth, but its sad that people use it to teach hate and things like that the bible is about love, forgiveness,hope and faith. But God is good all the time And loves all his childern. I believe americans shouldn't be force to believe one thing but have a choice. You have a choice to believe in God and his teaching its not forced on you, thats a misunderstanding a lot people have including christians. But there is nothing wrong with asking questions, But I believe God is there for everyone and the bible is true
from gigamonster :
"I am obsessive about books; I read them, I horde them and sometimes, when no one is looking, I press my open book against my nose and breathe deeply, taking in the unmistakable scent of Book." I do all of that too. I especially smell them and I do it in public where everyone can see me!
from danglemyfeet :
... I personally find you terrifying. Honest. Nothing dry-humouresque about that remark AT ALL.
from danglemyfeet :
... I love you. I mean that. You sound awesome to the infinite power. ...Cheers.
from moonwhispers :
I certianly hope I didn't offend you with my circle comment. It's just that I probably have not reached that point yet where I am comfortable with it. I would feel weird... like, what do I do *now..?* LOL. And as far as the UU you suggested, I have looked into it and it REALLY doesn't seem to be for me. The ONLY thing I am drawn to is this... so I figure its this or nothing. I just want to learn everything I can. :)
from creda :
I'm getting caught up with your prolificacy and just want to say: great posts, the whole bunch! I'm very glad you're posting more frequently! And your beautiful post about Jasmine and your philosophy of death: I'll have thoughts whirling around my mind on that for a long while.

Ooooo! Female Sags are *THE BEST*...my favorite out of all the zodiac possibilities, not that I'm biased or anything. :-D -cat
from nixtress :
Thank you for the note :) I was really bothered for that boy. It's disheartening to know how many mothers can be that way. Hope you have a great holiday.
from absinthesigh :

both my parents died 4 years ago. I believe their energy was recycled. They exist in my memories now. Losing a child would be more difficult than parents. (((hugs)))
from jenne1017 :
hmmm only one without comment??? ;)
from greenwitch :
The d'land news item about spam in supergold comments may be what caused the problem with my entering a comment. If it continues you might want to email Andrew. Good luck with the pms fix. The desert effect is interesting. Maybe your body is trying to overcompensate for the climate.
from greenwitch :
Have you tried evening primrose oil? Liferoot (senecio aureus) is a good long term help with pms. Leave me a note if you need more info. I tried to leave this in your comments but I got a white screen with the word banned in the upper left corner and the comment didn't take - strange.
from grngrl75 :
Thanks for the comment:) Ya know, I always think I'm bored with Illinois but I'll probably always live here:)
from boxx9000 :
Oh, how perfect Edvard Munch's SCREAM!!!!!! I am so upset with 4 more years of Bush. None of us will survive it. At least CALIFORNIA didn't vote for him. The rest of the country is insane.
from clarity25 :
Thank you so much for your note, it's good to know that I'm not alone with the pain and anger I feel over the results of the election! I really want to scream and kick something. (sigh)
from boxx9000 :
HAPPY HALLOWEEN.....BOO! What are your kids going to be for Halloween? and you?
from grngrl75 :
Thank you for adding me. Wow, I had only read one entry when I added you and hadn't read your profile yet. Looks like we do have some in common. It's hard for me to tell everything in this journal because my hubby reads it but it tells most things:) I look forward to reading more of yours:)
from girlinshadow :
Thank you for adding me to your favorites list. -Shadow
from clarity25 :
Thanks for your note, It's good to know someone else out there relates with my fear of rejection. Maybe we could motivate eachother to break out of it:)! I also liked your entry on the election debate and your views. I agree entirely, I think my biggest fear is that people aren't educating themselves about politics and aren't aware of the gravity of the situation. It's not about loving Kerry, It's about getting Bush out of office.
from linusthegirl :
Thank you.
from boxx9000 :
I mailed my absentee ballot today. I was very tempted to vote Green Party (but not this year) I voted KERRY/EDWARDS. How many more votes do we need now?
from treesssa :
Oh, I am not going to ridicule anyone that choses to vote. I would assume that if you vote, you are confident with your candidate. Thats good. Unfortunatly, I'm not thats why i chose not to.Thanks for the note.Have a good weekend.
from iamhubpluh :
If you are voting AGAINST Bush, check out http://BADNARIK.com he is for stoping the war in Iraq, and NOT sending more troops as Kerry is for (based on his debate answers). Vote your heart, not the less of two evils!
from creda :
I think laughing is totally appropriate! Silly, silly me.
from clarity25 :
Hi thanks for your note and of corse you can add me to your favorites. I'm flattered that you would want to! I'm so sorry that you lost your child, I can't find the right words to express it. I can only imagine how painful that must have been and the grieving process involved. I wish I had the right way of telling you that I feel for your loss.. I just began to read your diary .I like your list about yourself, and your views. (the part in the beginning about squeezing kittens had me giggling..I completely know what you mean!) I'm going to work my way through your archives, I just wanted to say a quick "hello!" first.
from cats-corner :
Hehehe...well, I know I'm not the best person to make a case for their own sanity, but do you trust my opinion when it comes to judging good writing? People are not crazy Monica; you are a gifted writer and I hope to have the privilage of seeing your work published someday. Thank you for the vote of confidence. -cat
from nygypsy :
I've talked so much about you people here should know you. However, I had to share your Trinity post with my friend T. With tears in her eyes she asked if you wrote children's books. I said no, she said "you should". Another vote for getting published. Read my posts over the next couple of days. It may drive you mad but if I can "open some doors" you should too. Love from New York!
from anonadada72 :
Yeah, me too -- both excited and bummed. I was really looking forward to Saturday's pagan pride events, and to finally meeting you. But if I don't get moved this weekend, I miss out on the extra recruits (my brother can help me move this weekend). I hope we do finally get to share that cup of coffee -- either here (I'll be coming down often) or in Prescott. I admire you in many ways, so I'd be disappointed if we couldn't eventually translate a D-land friendship to a real life friendship. :) Have fun on Saturday! I'll be sure to keep in touch even though the new job might mean sporadic updates. ~ Jess.

I'm an enabler! Wheee! :)

Did you bang your head, scrape your chest and pee your pants too?
from creda :
I just found a trailer for the Grudge--looks creepy and engrossing! I always have to ready myself for horror films though, 'cause I sure do hate the nightmares. It seems a great role for SMG too.
from cats-corner :
Haha! We need to come up with a word that adequately expresses how deeply our addiction to books runs...I'll work on that one. Oh, did the e-mail about "Mindprints" make it to your inbox? If not, I will resend asap. *Hugs* -cat
from hipmama979 :
Of course! Do you mind if I add you? I enjoy reading your entries. It gives me insight on things to come.
from the-book-bag :
Thank you for all the notes and for reading my diary Monica. You're a wonderful person and I will miss you. I hope everything goes well for you and your family in Arizona. *Hugs* -cat
from the-book-bag :
"Phenomenal Woman" has been a favorite of mine ever since I first watched Maya recite it on OPRAH! I just love her!
from witchful :
Woohoo! Tori! I knew we were sisters. Song is "The Wrong Band", and it's one of my faves.
from the-book-bag :
Oh, that's okay. I'm TERRIBLY un-hip when it comes to music. *Hangs head in shame* -cat :-)
from linusthegirl :
Time to ask an odd question..do you know anything about mandalas? Specifically, the colors in them?
from treesssa :
Yay! I won! Thanks for adding me. And yes, your admiration is much appreciated.Have a great day.
from treesssa :
Led Zepplin 'Thank you'! By the way, it wasn't me looking through your archives, but i have added you to my favs, i think you rock. Now, even more so, since you posted Led Zep lyrics!You go sistah!
from linusthegirl :
I wish I knew something to say that would comfort you.
from anonadada72 :
I hope the move is going well. I'm still counting on us getting that cup of coffee some time. :) To bring you up to date: I've decided to lock down my diary for a couple of different reasons. But I sent you the password. I think I sent it to your diaryland email address, so if for some reason you don't receive it, let me know and I'll resend it to your other address. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you once you make it to sweltering hot AZ. Brightest blessings to you. ~Jess.
from the-book-bag :
Oh I would NEVER ignore a note from you, especially one with so much care and thought put into it. I don't have words to tell you how much I appreciate what you said. I wish so very much that there were some way to bring Jasmine back to you and your family...I truly believe though that she is an angel now, watching over you and your family, loving you with all her heart. Thank you again for your note. It means so much to me to know that you care. *Many, many hugs* Oh and I'm sending all my positive, keep-you-and-your-family-safe-on-your-move vibes your way. -cat
from pandionna :
Oh my, of course. My diary is open to all, now that the lock-down business is finished. I've been reading through your diary and Jasmine's Memorial. Please count mine as another life that Jasmine has touched.
from the-book-bag :
I'd be a goddess from the Greek pantheon just because I'm obsessed with Greek mythology.
from greenwitch :
Yes, goat milk soap is WONDERFUL. I have a neighbor making it for me. I can't have lye and cheese on my stove all at the same time. Hope the sleep thing is going OK :-)
from hissandtell :
I've been loving catching up on your older entries that I missed while I was away. Just wanted to let you know, darling...love, R xxx
from the-book-bag :
Of course it's all right that you added me to your favorites list. I'm so flattered that you like my diary! Thank you for the compliment. :-D -cat
from fuzzmom :
Thank you so much for the kind words. I'm glad you're enjoying it. :)
from anonadada72 :
Changing Hands is the best. And, lucky me, when they had to move from their Mill Ave. location, they moved RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE!!! I kid you not, it's on the SW corner of McClintock/Guadalupe and I live on the NE corner. Yes, definitely a "pro" on the AZ list. :~)
from hissandtell :
Hello, you. I was thrilled to see you'd added me - thank you. I've been re-reading some of your entries and am enjoying them enormously; I look forward very much to catching up on more of your diary. Love, R xxx
from sullen-grrrl :
Thank you so much for the encouraging note. Its nice to know that there are people out there who truly do understand the many emotions that come with a loss- and who don't think that you are insane :) Have a great day!
from kitchenwitch :
Oh yeah! I really like the Anita Blake books... I only have the first, fifth, and the last two though... so I was kinda wondering what the heck I was going to read when finished them... thanks! (I am annoyed, I went to Borders and two used bookstores and I can't find the ones I am missing from the series... Its getting on my nerves! I want to read the rest!) ~blessings~
from p-o-y :
Welcome to Pieces Of You!
from anonadada72 :
Thanks for the WW/PT well-wishes. Good luck on your own ass-shrinkage efforts!
from widower :
Thanks for the note in my guestbook. I read through your diary yesterday and throughly enjoyed it. I could really realte to how you are feeling too. My daughters death isn't something I write much about on my web site in part because her death is still hard, at times, to deal with. I don't know if a parent ever gets over a death of a child. However, I know it's possible to have a happy and productive life. Anyway...thanks again for the note...I've added you to my favorites as well.
from life-my-way :
I was just wondering, have you ever read widower's diary? His early entries are about his grief after the loss of his wife [then 8ish months pregnant] and then their daughter a few days later. He, like you, is working on a book about grief--you might be interested in his writing and grieving process as a contrast to your own. Happy springtime fertility ritual to you and your family. K
from la-the-sage :
I hadn't been here for a while. I am so sorry to hear Jasmine has moved on. Not sorry for her exactly, she is free of pain now. Though I am sorry her time here was brief and such a struggle. I am sorry for you and your family to have to be here without her. To lose a child is so hard! My mother heart is aching with yours. ~LA
from trancejen :
I hope she's OK - God, that's some scary stuff. I'll be thinking about you and sending all my good wishes.
from rowan79 :
RF- I am so concerned. I will call the cell phone asap tonight! I love you all! Ro
from rowan79 :
I dedicated to Earth this year, too! I am working on silence and witnessing the process.
from rowan79 :
I just finished 'The Parable of the Sower'- it was excellent! I could barely put it down!
