Usually, "notes" will arrive on a Sunday night.

More than likely the timing corresponds
to my reflection of the two days

of bliss,
away from the place I call


48 hours spent mostly in solitude
(both by choice and the ever present dictation of the cafe that consumes my life and business partner,. Mr. J.)

unless you count the brat Cat

who seems disturbed that I have intruded upon HER world
for two days

and keeps one slanted eye on me at all times...


I want to share a discovery of huge proportion.
An amazing woman,


songwriter- musician


Christine Kane

I found these words of hers on her blog
that echoed my very conversation with a co worker yesterday

I told her that if we, as a collective spirit,
could ignore the doomsday bellowing
and instead
believe the best
and act that way
speaking only positive words
sending a positive vibration out to the universe
WE could make a difference..........

and then today I find this artist
and her blog
and her thoughts that mirrored mine
and I am sure many, many more.
She wrote this:

You can choose to participate in a recession or not. You are a point of power in this game. Even if the whole world agrees that everything is in a free-fall, you can still expand. You can still generate and regenerate. You can still create and create again. This is wealth.

When you live consciously, then you are no longer a part of the mainstream thoughts — the caterpillar pillar. You no longer look to anyone or anything outside of you to define your reality. You choose that for yourself now. Remember? You define abundance. You decide whether or not to shrink or expand. You choose whether or not to participate in this line of thinking. This is wealth.

Either way, you’re going to eat food. Either way, you’re going to buy gas and go perform and teach and share your soul. Either way, you’re going to wake up each day, and decide that it’s going to be a great day.

So, don’t fire the cleaning lady. Pay her extra.

Don’t look at the numbers as you fill your gas tank. Decide to have more than enough. And then look at the sky and smile at the satellites.

Don’t shrink and hide your light. Shine brighter and share yourself with people.

Don’t deny yourself joy and delight. Buy a reckless bouquet of flowers for your coffee table.

Don’t lock yourself up in your house. Invest in yourself and go to the workshop.

You create flow. You generate wealth. Your choice to expand will always lead to greater abundance.

Be very very clear that you are the point of power in your life, and that there’s no such thing as recessions where you live.

My dear bloggie friends

enjoy her message and her music

I, for one,
am setting this sketch that I doodled out
in my favorite moleskine
a few moments ago

I was thinking about how PIA
hates Halloween trick or treaters

am heading over to i-tunes
to purchase her music

Great song, great philosophy, great sketch, great that you had two days from "crazy" land.
Now just let me tell you what I saw yesterday. Well, I saw your original little painting that I didn't win in your drawing. As a matter of fact, I will be posting a little proof of that fact a little later today.
It was b-e-a-t-i-f-u-l!!

This is my first visit here. You signed the Mr. Linky for BlogBlast For Peace. Thank you! And especially thanks for placing the logo in your sidebar.

To answer your question: After you've made your globe, send it to mimiwrites2005 at I will place it in the Official Gallery HERE. Then on November 6th you write a post about peace and display the globe with the title "Dona nobis pacem." It's that simple.

If you need help don't hesitate to write. See you soon!

Came to see if you did anything with that cute little sketch up there.
