Which way do we go?

Posted 06-14-2009 at 11:18 AM by LookinForMayberry

My husband's been working out our travel plans for the next six weeks. This has been a big struggle for us in past efforts, because I like to have an input to the plans, and he likes to make them without my interfering. (He was the first born son, and is who he is -- thank GOD.)

So, again, the change has to be in ME. Actually, it's been pretty easy. I realized that I'm having a good time most everywhere we go, and if I just relax and enjoy the ride we are both happier.

Fear and/or Discomfort = Bad Attitude!

Posted 06-12-2009 at 03:13 AM by LookinForMayberry

Obviously, I have not yet come close to becoming Enlightened. From what I can observe so far, if I am feeling safe and comfortable, I can stay calm, loving, and compassionate. BUT, God HELP the person that scares me, or gets between me and my comfort.

I suppose, given that We are all ONE, that roughly translates to anyone else, too. The logical outcome to that has to be that when others are displaying THEIR bad attitude, then THEY are probably feeling scared or uncomfortable,...

Leavin' NYC

Posted 06-11-2009 at 04:43 AM by LookinForMayberry

Last day in the Big Apple was much better. My husband was kind enough to be sensitive to my physical incapacity (ol' lady hips and knees!), and arranged for less walking, more trips via subway -- we even took a horse carriage ride around Central Park. I love the vitality of NYC, and the diversity. I didn't recognize the foreign (to me) languages, but that didn't mean I appreciated them any the less.

Visiting NYC was like seeing a richly fibered tapestry. Who cannot love it?

It's hard to forgive ME

Posted 06-10-2009 at 04:06 AM by LookinForMayberry

I've read numerous times that loving kindness begins at home. Yesterday, I was a complete witch (with a B), and said awful, hurtful things to my husband -- because I was tired, achy, and blaming it all on him. We went to NYC with the intentions of seeing the city from the Rockefeller Observation deck, then MoMA, with lunch in between. Well, the observation deck was closed due to cloud cover, MoMA isn't open on Tuesdays, and we spent the day walking all over town. (My aging hips, knees, feet were...

Travels Around North America

Posted 06-09-2009 at 02:57 AM by LookinForMayberry
Updated 06-09-2009 at 03:06 AM by LookinForMayberry

Yesterday morning we were camped outside of Clinton, NJ. The park was a cacophony of birds' songs, and I took my binoculars out after daybreak to see what I could see. Everywhere we go, I discover birds I've never seen before and appreciate the richness they bring to my life. That morning, I'd read a thread a woman wrote about what to do with a bird that had been keeping her up all night with its singing. Her respondents all seemed to think the best thing was for her to scare it off, or kill it....
