Hello Chels!

Tarzan that pumpkin is so cool!


JustMike, I am so very happy to hear that you and Dada are doing so well there! Loved the Halloween video! I love this Holiday and wish I could have gone to maybe a paranormal presentation somewhere this year, but it wasn't in the cards.

Groot!!!!! Where the hell have you been young man? Good to see you!

Hello Wis!

... little drops of joy and a strange sorrow come to my eyes.


Oh yes, I know what you mean. She is going, but at least slowly. And, as far as I can tell, without physical pain. So the joy and sorrow mix, like apricot juice with lemons. But lemon juice also has its benefits.

We are pretty settled now. There is still a lot that needs doing at our cottage but even when it's about zero celcius (like now), we're warm as toast as we have a good stove and plenty of woodettes.

We're as well as we can be. I have a couple of operations to get done but they are not super-urgent right now (and I got checked by a specialist recently who confirmed there is no great rush), and aside from her brain condition she is probably in better physical shape than me.

EDIT to add:

I believe when ever I cross a line, knowing or unknowing, I should make amends.


I follow you. Just don't beat yourself up over it. You should not need to recompense when you are unaware of transgression. Anyone can be offended by anything, so the key is reasonable humility. But humility of itself is very powerful: it is also a strength if it is not taken too far.

Hellooooo Groot,
Hail to you. How are you?
You have been gone so long I had to reboot to find you in my memory bank.

Crappie, long time no see.
Any thing new? Win the lottery, moved to the Bahamas?

Gordi made this "dress" for me. Just thought you would appreciate it.
I do, it is very pertinent.

That may well be, but it makes for a perfect play on words, combined with my original avatar.
A little anecdote.
When I was a young girl, I hung out at a farm where they had horses, just a select few. I loved the couple who owned it.
They had a grey all most blue stallion named "Shadow".
They let me tend to him and ride him. One day they asked me to train him!!!!
For months I worked with him and was asked to show him to the buyer from Sweden.

Oh dear I haven't thought of this in decades. It brings such powerful emotions.
He was a magnificent being, gentle but wild, to accomplish any thing with him I had to be cunning. He treated me like a queen, never threw me, but demanded my respect.
Right now with tears, I can feel the last time I slid off his back and he put his head to my chest.
Sorry for the mushy tale.

Where we live, Halloween is not like it is in the US. But I can tell you this: one reason we bought our cottage was because it was on a "dead end" street in this quiet little village, and the dead end is because at the top of the road 100 yards away, there is the local cemetery.

We never have any issues with them. Our own neighbour, who passed last year, is up there now. She was a sweet soul and I know she'll keep the others in check.

We're prefectly happy to live close to the local cemetery. After all, we all wind up in one if we're lucky. And we go up there sometimes, just tom ake sure it's all neat and tidy. My wife and I do a little weeding or cleaning and also water flowers in the warm weather, and when there's been a storm and tree branches are lying all over the place, we tidy up. Just so it all looks nice.

We're ok with it.

Where I lived, in, Denmark, cemeteries where beautifull little parks, one in the heart of every village usually surrounding a church.
I loved it and miss the close connection with the past here in the US, where they are situated far apart from people. Here they are deserts of mowed grass and plastic flowers.

Reminds me of something I wrote and made a thread on.

As Shadows Fall

You walk here as shadows fall around this place of silence and serenity.
Words no longer spoken, where bones lay sleeping and souls fly free in some ethereal realm.
Their lives were lived, like stories unfolding from a book, some still told by those left behind, others gone so long that there is no one left to tell their tale. Sometimes we see their resting place and wonder what their stories were about, how they lived their lives, what they looked like, whos lives they touched. Were their lives hard or filled with wonder and joy? You leave a gift of flowers for the ones you know and love and walk away into your own life, as your own story unfolds and the pages turn.

Happy Halloween

I wish we all lived down the street from each other as Halloween is not much of a big thing where I live. (everyone here is basically bible thumpers. No offense intended)

My cats and I will just have to celebrate in our own ways I guess. lol

The bad news from my cardiologist is that my heart may fail me any day now. He is working on ways to prevent that but it's going to take a few months to see how my heart is doing before surgery is an option.

My you find pease upon your path

Mushy? Not at all - to me, at least. Beautiful and uplifting? Yes.

Horses are among my favorite people.


He is worthy of any tears you shed.

Thank you, my friend.

You know how much these little communications mean to me.

I need say no more.

That must be incredibly hard to deal with.

I would say to your cardiologist: "If you were me, and knowing what you know, wouldn't you try to find a way to hurry this up? After all, those few months could mean years to me -- or you, in my place.

Please, help me to live."

With love and hugs,


Mike

You're scaring me my friend and you must be scared too. Big warm hug! I have no words and that is not like me.

Looks like we could all use a group hug right about now.

This is a wolf group hug. Calling out to all, singing together to affirm the pack as one.

Oh My, yes it would be wonderful if we did, but we can pretend, we can "make believe" as when we were children and there were no boundaries.
We can hold hands, we can talk, we can hug and it is real. It isn't in our "imagination" as the "grown-ups" tell us. Make believe is real.
Just reach out and hold our hands.

I am so sorry, mostly because this idiotic system doesn't preserve life.
I have a question.
What do you want to say to us?
What do you want to say in general?
I really want to hear what some one on the edge has to say, you may change the course of some ones life.
Don't be brave, just be you.
HUGS from WISter.
