a Mind at Home ….

a Mind at Home ….
A few quotes from …. A Mind at Home With Itself Byron Katie Page 20 If you think that someone else is the cause of your problem, you’re insane.

These thoughts aren’t p [...]

Roasted Mexican Grasshopper

Roasted Mexican Grasshopper
Last night we went to chat about time hopping and parallel universes with a small group of folks in an old house undergoing wonderful remodeling. We spent a lot of time in the new kitchen with wine, cheese, sausage, crackers, and roasted Mexican grasshoppers. Yep.

Velveteen Frankensteen
Velveteen Frankensteen (assembly required) … Sometimes, the very nature that abhors a vacuum, hands us a broom and dust pan … to sweep together the ingredients; the strands of platinum blonde, doggy hair everywhere, scraps of satin, flannel, ripped denim feathers, leathers, gold and glitter, laying out in patterns and mannerisms, [...]
