You got this.

Written by Marianne Williamson
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Long time…

It has been a really long time since I have blogged.

Now and again I turn to here because I am alone here, I am safe here, maybe? I don’t know for sure.

Christmas is really super hard this year. I do not want to be alone, but I guess I made this happen.

Funny how things turn out

ASl – Firework – Katy Perry

This is one of the most beautiful videos I have seen. I swear, for me, sometimes I really “get” the song once I have seen it signed.

This song I love, it resonates with me. I know some people do not like it, but I think if you have ever felt like a plastic bag drifting through the wind, wanting to start again… then you know.

People. I don’t get them.

Most days, I feel like I am from another planet. No lie.

Lawns. WHY do people care so much about lawns? Knickers in knots over water restrictions. Fine, xeriscape your yard! Better yet, take a big picture approach and think “Yay, my city is doing something for the planet” or barring that, think back on how little rainfall we have had this year. You do not NEED two giant green lawns. You are not a golf course.

The Bible is true and the world is only 6,000 years old. Yeah, um, okay then.

Cigarette smoking is not an addiction. Oh COME ON NOW, you are joking, right?

Anyway, have some music.

Envy, cooking, tablets

I envy people who enjoy cooking. I spent some time tonight at my usual haunt, Barnes and Noble. I was seeking to learn a bit more about slow-cooker cooking. Indeed, I learned that Crockpots came out in 1970, so 43 years late, I am learning how to use one. And not even for myself, but for cooking dog food.

I suppose if I had ever had a big family or something, I might have been forced into learning how to cook, but I didn’t.

Nonetheless, I found this cookbook to be the best and easiest to read, with recipes that did not make feel stupid.

The Complete Slow Cooker Cook Book

Makes me wonder if people who do like to cook and really buy lots of cookbooks also enjoy buying cookbooks for their tablets, such as Nook Color or iPad and reading them for fun and inspiration. I bet having a cookbook on your device and making notes and stuff would be fun.

However, it is kind of sad that people will not find their granny’s old recipes anymore.

Kinda like Hilah did when she found a recipe card that said “Cocktail 1934″

Hilah also wrote a cookbook. Her website is

Oy. I am just blathering now.
