salt + pepper cats

two cats with black and white spots have decided the front yard, beneath our umbrella tree is their new fav lounge. when dN tried to chase them away, they sent him eyes of daggers and almost risked death by on-coming traffic to continue their hate-on. maybe they are re-incarnations of former inhabitants. a pair of sweethearts from the 20s.

dreams: more riddles to unfold

i dreamed about wearing mismatched shoes on the wrong feet. one shoe was a cream coloured old fashioned one with a heel. i think the other was a black ballet flat but i don't recall. once again my dream guide falls short in the interpretation dept. theories welcome.

dream analysis needed

had this dream last night about a blue polka dot dress, two other girls had the same dress only with red polka dots. were we bridesmaids? the dream book comes up empty on that one, what do you think it means?

my dreams have been colourful lately. dreamed about a poetry slam down a few nights ago, apparently if you recite poetry in a dream it fortells a slew of admirers. had another about taking a bath in a swiss thermal bathtub. if the temperature was just right, it was a sign you will accomplish your goal. here's to that!

a dentist by any other name...

went to a new dentist today. a laid-back character by the name of Humphrey. not after Bogart sadly. a quirky detail with blog written all over it. all he needs is a trench coat. we'll always have liberty village. play it again sam.

opera calling

the opera singer next door decided to practice during a conference call yesterday. mildly comical. mildly argh. yesterday was one i'd like to forget, today my head aches as payback. the sound of rain falling out the window is solace, wishing for calm and quiet. so hard to listen and follow the listen to your body advice this week, i feel these regrets and fear at not getting well fast enough. faith, pray life gives me a second chance. give yourself one.

peonies in the window

our peony bush has begun to bloom. dN brought me a bouquet today so they are delivering heavenly scents as i work this afternooon. now all i need to do is follow my own advice, caved into tears two steps before reaching my goal this morning even though the steps leading up to it were quite good. oh the drama! there is always next time.

be your own best friend

that is today's lesson. i have been trying to skip ahead and keep forgetting that you need to stand before you can walk, that you are not slacking if you visualize moving your toe instead of doing physio. accepting the stage you are at, trying to be happy NOW. most of my falls lately have happened because i move from an unstable position, hoping that if i rush to the next move everything will fall into place. i need to love myself no matter what body part is malfunctioning at any given moment. the challenge this week is to listen to my body, rest when needed, stand when you've got the energy, sometimes stopping the panic, frenzy, fear monster is the best thing you can do with the moment. the answers are within.
