Movie Night – Jojo Rabbit

February 9 2021

Extra movie night for me – “Jojo Rabbit”

I went into this one not really wanting to watch it. But I checked it out from the library, and it’s due. So I went for it. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I think I felt every single emotion, rounded off with deep laughter. Definitely not a movie I would typically choose to watch. However, I’m so glad I did. The Rilke quote that ends the movie … 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 …. That’s my memoir in four lines. I have lived beauty. I have lived terror. And I just kept going. None of it was final. Even though it felt like it at the time. I. Have. Lived. ❤️❤️❤️

Another story from Lillian …

Once years ago there lived a mermaid named Rainbow who lived in the ocean’s deep blue depth who lived there with her good friends Pearl and Coral. Rainbow dreamed of seeing the deep dark blue sky and seeing unicorns.
While up in the sky soaring high above in the earth’s deep dark blue, lived a unicorn named Skyla who dreamed of seeing …

Happy Happy Happy Valentine’s Day to my forever loves. Love you, Thomas and Lillian, forever and ever, always and always …. 💖💖💖 … I made each of them a heart shaped crystal sun catcher (with crystal beads). Sending oceans of love to all of you, too … 💜💜💜

Throwback Post: A Potential New Team TLC Casa


September 20 2013:

How’s this for the view for the potential new Team TLC Casa? Similar view we have now …. tad different angle. About 5 minutes from here and a little closer to the freeway! Just looked at it a few days ago and the beautiful owner’s sister bought one of my books when we met her to look at it, they’ve offered to lower the rent by $60/month without me asking and when I looked at it again today without T & L so I could concentrate, I drove off with a new cool jacket she felt compelled to give me! I’m so HappY with me when I allow myself to receive with the knowing that I deserve it!

March 26 2021 Update: We did not end up getting this place. I can’t remember exactly why. But, I think I waited a tad too long to let them know and they rented it to someone else. It was a very cool experience, though!
