From what I hear from the “Old Locals” (I refer to myself here as a “New Local”…), The Snow has been late this year in Pagosa. In fact, it’s anticipated arrival seems to have triggered more anxiety than the Presidential Elections, since so much of the local prosperity seems to hinge on whether or not the Wolf Creek Ski Area is open. And for that, it seems you need snow.

I think my friends Mark and Heidi have struck on a new snow-making technique, and it seems to have worked. I’ll call it: LLASS (Lend Leslee A Snow Shovel). I went by their place last night to pick it up, and, voilá… arrives The Snow!

Now, by my standards, I’d call this more of an Atlanta-style snow, but I’ll wait until I get into town later today to see if the Old Locals even consider this The Snow.

Just the same, I admit my relief that my introduction to Pagosa’s version of the magical, awe-inspiring crystals has been this gentle so far.

I smiled to myself as I made my morning coffee, to notice that the way I feel now reminds me of going into labor with my son… I had been hearing for months, from others, about what it was going to be like. Finally, the day came when I actually felt my own contractions. It still took someone telling me, “Yes, THAT is a contraction”.

So now, I’ll just spend the day watching the slush melt, and wait to discover what it takes before an Old Local tells me: “Yes, that is The Snow“.

Here’s hoping that November finds you all safe and happy!

my mind feels kinda like this lately: a little dim, a little brilliant, what the heck is that thing in the sky, a tightly knotted mess of limbs and leaves but thank goodness there’s a trunk and roots… somewhere… is that really a jet, or a flying saucer… oh yeah, Ghost Radar calls those Bob, have you ordered the pizza yet (it’s getting dark… now where can I find that little copyright symbol…), and would you look at the stuff flyin’ out of that big dark thing!

My fingers feel like doing a little tapping, so I hope y’all enjoy it as much as I do…

Siriusly, things seem to be going rather well right now, and I’m quite enjoying some of the ideas being batted about lately, especially now that the Vatican has been outed.

It’s just going to get more and more fun as things progress.

I mean that sincerely… Those of you who know me personally might have some idea of what the past 3+ years for me have been like. And those of you who may not know me as well… are about to.

I’m pretty happy that I’ve been spared from having to ask for anything more than unemployment benefits (from the government – family deserves their fair credit for being there for me!) while I was laid off for two years. Many of you can perhaps imagine what it’s like to lose 2 homes, move 5 times in two years looking for work, give up custody of your only child (with special needs), end up with nothing left but what can fit in the 12-year-old CRV, and spend a little time in a certain now-closed mental institution, the mere name of which causes mental health care professionals to groan.

At least that part was free… well kind of. Since I had to file bankruptcy, I guess it’s in someone else’s hands now.

I know my Mom is probably reading this and thinking, “Oh dear, I thought we were doing so much better!”

Well, Mom, we are, and I love you and Dad from the bottom of my heart.

In fact, I’m doing so much better that I’ve realized that if I share this little bit, maybe some people who were feeling down will smile, and some who’ve had an easier time will remember feeling grateful…

Because there is one thing that I’ve learned in the last 3 years for sure: there are a whole lot people with similar stories in this world, who might be feeling alone or embarrassed.

And they deserve to know they’re in good company.

And we’re all going to be alright.

Another thing I’ve learned is that a lot of us are on meds. And who knows why, but even if meds are a poison of “Big Pharma”, they may still help. I was surprised that they do for me, and I’m still me. I’m glad I gave ’em a chance.

Because I’m here to tell you that there are also a heck of a lot of people out there who are brilliant and kind and psychic… or empathic… or just “sensitive”… or maybe even telepathic.

So I’m glad to know that I’m not alone.

And many of us have diagnoses of depression, bi-polar, schizo-affective, ADHD, but there’s really not anything “wrong” with us. We just would benefit from other people dropping their fears and allowing us to be different from them.

“We” are here to teach.

And most of the folks we call “Autistic”? Don’t even get me started. I prostrate to anyone who has the guts to fearlessly refuse to engage people who try to manipulate them.

(I know that sounds like a broad-brush accusation, but I promise it’s not. Some contemplation and compassion might reveal the meaning behind those words.)

So I’m here, and I’m gonna say it as loud as I can in a blog:

I REPRESENT.

And I advocate.

I’m getting clear messages from around the globe (and our unseen dimensions) that things in this muddy old world are finally shifting. I’m ready.

I think I have 8 blogs registered with WordPress (and a YouTube channel, and soon an online shop, but we’re talking about the blogs, right?). Seven of them are active (well, okay, a few are a little cobwebby right now…), and the idea was that I needed these to keep my trains of thought in order.

That’s actually worked pretty well, like filing cabinets… But with re-blogging, it’s like having little wormholes between them!

As I prepared to return to work a couple weeks ago, I caught a glimpse of how we can expend a lot of energy trying to keep things separate. Really, it might be easier to integrate.

To talk about stuff… together, like…

So I decided to have my coming out party here online, and boy it feels good.

This little blog is my “normal” corner of the world. Other pieces dispense Buddhism, Fed-Up-Neo-Buddhism, New-Age-Wacko-UFOlogy, Just Havin’ Fun with friends on the Spirit Train, My Bandaid Buddhist Dream Log, and Because U Think To Ask, a nascent but soon-to-burgeon resource about the Hollow Earth and Extra-Terrestrials. Another (Up2the5th) is a resource for folks who just remembered why they’re here and want to connect and learn more.

Last but not least, the newest one, FORT (which is still waiting for posts), will teach anyone who wants to know, a wonderful way you may be able to connect with your Spiritual Guide (I use a pendulum and Intuition).

For free.

See? I’m all over the place…

The best part is this: if you enjoy my posts here, but are not interested in Buddhism, and think UFOs are Ultimately Freakin’ Odd, that’s quite alright. Please know that as long as you’re polite, you’re welcome in all my little corners!

And I love questions.

So thank you for hangin’ with me for this long. I’m so grateful for the web, and blogging, and people who are different.

This finger-tappin’ session was particularly enjoyable for me.

Thank you for sharing my space, and may we all have a remarkably wonderful week!
Namaste,

During my walk this morning, taking pics of nearby Shoal Creek, I thought I saw a ghost move across the lens!

I snapped wildly as the specter floated about, but I was unable to see anything with my naked eyes…

I kept watching, annoyed by the mosquitoes that just wouldn’t leave me alone while I was trying to capture my ghosts!!!

Oh.

(clears throat)…

I guess since I’ve seen how dust motes can cause “angel-orbs”, it only makes sense that skeeters can cause “demon-shades”…

Can you see the gray blobs in the pics below?
