oh yeah, it’s the 19th of august.
wow. how time flies.
yeah, this post is ALL about me.
things i like. love. and things
i don’t like so much.
((searched for my birth mother & found her when i was 18. that’s another story for another time.))
i was raised in NY.
started running away from home at 12, moved out for good…at 15…
went on cross country road trips 2X…
i love to read. and write.
i gave up.
when i see different ART forms or mediums or techniques…i want to try them all.
i’ve learned to say ‘no’, ‘enough’ over the years. well, not always.
ilove a lot of things…but at the top of my list…
i love my sons.
(that beard, is braided under his shirt & goes all the way to his waist!)
i’d rather be anywhere else except florida…but if i never came here, i wouldn’t have met sam.
feathers. shells. rocks & stones.
fossils & artifacts.
turtles. old books. (found) old glass bottles.
pens. insect wings. art/craft supplies.
i think i’ll stop there.
i’m a kid inside.
i’ll just about hyperventilate beforehand…
forget to breathe…get light headed.
it’s hard for me to get CLOSE to people.
winter over summer.
at least it continued until i was in my early 30′s.
it was an even sadder day when strangers started calling me ‘Ma’am’.
i love being outside. nature. taking pictures.
bugs. spiderwebs. flowers. mushrooms. anything with dew.
waking before dawn. the moon. clouds.
anchovies on pizza.
fruit pie, not cake.
i like (the natural) peanut butter, but it always seems to give me the hiccups.
mmmmm, cheese. onions. garlic. red peppers. jalapenos.
give or take meat. i could easily be a vegetarian,
but sam likes his meat & potatoes.
i talk in my sleep. a lot. have very vivid dreams.
jeans. t-shirts. that’s me. sneakers, crocs, hiking boots & winter boots.
i’m NOT trendy, don’t care about fashion.i don’t like to talk on the phone.
don’t have a smart phone or ipad.
DO have an ipod and e-reader.
don’t like when people litter. litters are for dogs & cats.
i’ve never spent $$ on a matching set of furniture.
love to shop thrift stores.
wool makes me itch and turtle necks make me feel like i’m being strangled.
all cotton. polyester makes me sweat.
don’t like to have my picture taken.
i’m not political.
i like mystical stuff. native american. celtic. tarot. crystals. candles. dream catchers.
tattoos (have 5). rock music. the sounds of birds, crickets, cicadas,
the bass guitar, wind chimes, waves crashing, the wooden flute, thunder, purring cats,
the bone rattling kick of nitro in the top fuel dragsters.
oh yeah, i saw a UFO once. in hollywood, florida. looking to the sky. late night.
i spotted a V formation of tiny lights. just sitting. hovering.
and in a split second it was gone…appearing on the opposite side of the night sky.
our anniversary was the 16th (10 yrs together, 5 married)
and sam’s B-day is the 21st (54).
but this year we’re home. we have both my sons living with us.
it’s a bit crowded, in our humble little home…
they’re sharing the 2nd bedroom we have.
they are eating machines.
but at least they’re working…
concrete, stucco & stone…
and help out around the house…
like splitting wood, hauling dead downed trees…
work for the young & strong!
i’ve made it this far.
i need to make it ’til the day i can retire.
downsize. live VERY frugally…
in our truck camper.
hit the road.
with no destination in mind.
so, that’s it.
there’s always next year.
ONE MORE thing…
thank YOU for being a part of my life this past year…
for wandering & exploring by my side…
and for being there through my good times and down times!
i almost nixed this.
felt like i was writing a personal ad or something.anyway, have a nice week!…
i’m eager to begin my next 365 day journey under the moon and around the sun…
