Here we go...

Happy to report that Pake completed the preliminary work for radiation today. The staff is very kind and his nurses are stellar. He walked in and out, with a smile on his face. Today's highligh was getting to choose the Pandora music, "2000 something Country" (I'll keep my opinion on that to myself :) 

He'll be here once a day, starting next week. It's going to be a long 6 week haul, but we all agree that it is better than surgery. He's had enough of that to last for a long, long time. 

I'm super proud of Pake's positive approach. Not one time has he felt sorry for himself or complained. What an inspiration he is! 



Everything is better with {old} Country Music!

Following the muse...

Today is the first day that I have even entertained the idea of doing something creative. Though I have taken timeouts from busy weekly schedules, I have yet to do much in the way of self-care, save reading a book. I will always have something to read. I have also been reading necessary and technical works by FAFSA and BCBS... if you know the acronyms, then you feel my pain! 
I'm still in a state of deep sadness/mourning and sometimes shock. I get through my days as best as I can. I've had plenty of distractions, both positive and otherwise. I'm seldom at a loss for "something to do" though what I usually crave is sleep. I'm not even ashamed to say that this past weekend I slept for a blissful 14 hours. I was far, far, far behind. 
In the midst of unpacking from the weekend, going through bills, trying to find the counter and listening to the rhythm of my children arguing conversing, I was inspired to STOP and color. To complete a large page is simply out of th…

Friends Along the Trail

I didn't think about taking pictures and recording stories of the wonderful people I met on my journey, until the last day 🙄. I met up with Patricia and Staci in Crestone. Very cool ladies that I had the pleasure of sharing  about the Ki energy work that I do. Then there was Brian, the volunteer guide at Chaco. Brian has an amazing story that I will share in another post. The final leg of the journey was where I met this Soul Sister, Ranell Fox. 

I was driving out to Royal Gorge, I thought it looked like a cool stop. I was wrong. After spending so many days alone, in quiet solitude and virtually undisturbed from crowds and chaos, stopping here was an absolute assault on my system.... LORDY! 

Throwing the binoculars in the backpack I walked to the visitor's center and felt my entire being constricting. Too many people, too much noise, too much.......everything. My entire quest was to connect with my soul and the Earth energies. To remember why I am here, to recalibrate and rejuv…

I hit the highway...

"My friends from high school
Married their high school boyfriends
Moved into houses in the same ZIP codes
Where their parents live But I, I could never follow
No, I, I could never follow I hit the highway in a pink RV with stars on the ceiling
Lived like a gypsy
Six strong hands on the steering wheel I've been a long time gone now
Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down
But I've always found my way somehow" The Long Way Around~Dixie Chicks
My theme song. From the first time I heard it, I knew it was ME. I've never been known to follow a traditional path. I usually start coloring the page and then I veer off and ignore the lines.  Today I'm doing something I've always wanted to do. I'm hitting the highway in a little gray jeep. No stars on the ceiling, but definitely tunes blaring from the speakers. Destination: unknown, I'll know when I get there.  I'm taking a spontaneous, solo road trip. The time is right and although I have a lot that I need to/s…
