The other night I saw the movie "The Day After Tomorrow" on TV. I don't know what the reviewers said about this film, but I thought is was worth seeing. I can't stop thinking about it. Mike tells me that this is an improbable senerio, but to my uneducated mind it makes sense,

After catching a bit of the news about the flooding in Bombay, where they experienced 37 inches of rain in one day, it seemed even more possible.

Some things just stick in your mind. Like the so-so book I read once in the early Eighties. THE HAB THEORY wasn't a great book but the premise has not left me. Even after all these years.

This morning, the spray unit on my kitchen sink broke. My usual handyman is in Ghana, so I couldn't just ask him to take care of the matter.

Later today, I stopped by the hardware store and found a replacement. I asked a nice young woman who worked there how to fix it. She explained. This evening I replaced the broken sprayer.

This might not seem like such a big thing to most, but I've never before done even the littlest plumbing repair. I'm so proud of myself.


July 28th is a day for firsts.
Happy Birthday, my wonderful first born son.

On that day, I was sure I had just given birth to the most perfect baby that had ever come into this world. ...And, then the fun began. :-)

Happy Birthday Mike!

Your mom still thinks you are pretty wonderful!

Stopping a moment,
she took a deep breath,
and felt renewed strength.

Then she moved forward.

I felt separated yesterday.
And, the day before that.
And, the day before that.

It had been a long time since I'd felt part of the One.
I was not present ...even with Her.
I didn't ask the question I wanted to.

The sound of the weeping of the multitudes
filled my ears, entered my heart
and broke my peace.

The world intruded. Our actions horrified me.
I felt sadness ... and guilt ... and powerlessness,
as the powerful moved forward

enacting their laws
and disguising the selfish motives
while we consumed in great quantities.

Our excess seemed obscene
as people continued to starve
and die horrifying deaths

while we played
and bought more stuff
and complained about taxes.

Nothing has changed
but for some reason today,
I see the faint light of hope.

Have faith.

...by Aldous Huxley

"We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies -- all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never experiences themselves. From family to nation, every human group is a society of island universes."


The other day, I tried to explain my mystical and spiritual view to someone. I failed.

So Pete comes home from a meeting this afternoon and says;
"Let's go to the movies later."
I say; "OK."

He says; "I want to see War of the Worlds.
I say; "I don't want to see that movie. It will be too scary."
Pete says; "Judi, it's science fiction! You'll love it."

I say; "Let's go see a comedy instead."
Pete ignores what I just said.

Pete has to finish something before we head out
While I'm waiting, our friend, Jim, calls.
I tell him that Pete wants to go out to see "War of the Worlds"

Jim tells me that he saw it earlier this week.
I ask Jim; "Is it scary?"
Jim says; "No, it isn't scary." "It was beautiful."

He liked the special effects.
Jim adds; "You love science fiction, Judi."
"You will love this movie."

Can't believe these guys.
My heart is pounding and I am still trying to exhale!

I am alive.
I am well.
I am busy.
...Be back soon.
