We look like a blooming flower! Last day for The Romano Duo visit and I get a wee bit of respite.
Thomas and Lillian are off to enjoy swimming and dinner at The Nugget.
How much can I do (or not do) in about six hours? Letting go and finding out …. xoxo
Respite: Twas a ride for sure!! I already knew I was going to stay home as I haven’t had the place to myself in a year and a half. So …. did a wee bit of yoga, sobbed and released, read, sobbed and released, wrote a poem, sobbed and released. I truly know how to party hardy!! HA!
It was a full day of much connecting and releasing. I even released in my sleep that night too!
Going for a walk and hanging out in trees. Thomas and I had a wonderful walk this afternoon.
Thomas’ friend told him that he should live in a mansion when he earns a million dollars. Thomas told him he’d be living in a tiny place just like where we live now. “Why?”, his friend asked. Thomas answered, “Because I like it and I can.” Love, sweet love. xoxo

“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
.. from the blog … “We wrote stories, beliefs, habits, and fears on strips of paper. It was such a wonderful, blissful feeling sitting with both of them doing this. They really, truly understood the process and what types of things to write on the strips. I was so moved. There was a beautiful excitement in the air. A magical anticipation of ….”
What a blessing Mr. Happy and his human companion, Debbie, are to us! It has just been the perfect pairing! xoxo
“I am here working on a 4 month consulting job and have my dog, Happy, with me. I needed a loving person to take Happy outside for a potty break around noon time every weekday and to dog sit when I am out of town. What a treasure to find Camilla living in the same community. She is a blessing. I highly recommend her and Team TLC to help out with your special pet family member! -Debbie, Building #17

October 27 2016:
More beautiful gifts from nature on my morning walk. A walk in hugely gusty winds. A walk which prompted me to say out loud, “Okay. Here I am. Speak to me.”
About 5 minutes later a young lady came up behind me as I was walking away from a spot I had been standing. She was yelling “Hello” to get my attention.
We chatted about photography, the lake and the different wildlife that visit, writing, poetry, and getting out of ones own way to create from the heart.
Turns out she’s a 15 year old student at Wooster High and is currently taking a Spoken Word Poetry class. She was so excited to be talking with me.
We were practically alone out there as the weather was shifting to heavier wind and rain. She asked if I’d come speak to their class. Of course I will!
I know I am to begin speaking more so if you ask, I’ll most likely say yes! A little bit after getting home I received an email asking if I’d be willing to be a speaker on a panel next month. Of course. Yes! Thank you and I’ll have more please. xoxo
On the morning walk …. a short video of nothing …. and everything. xoxo
