Currently, April 2016

Books: Finished off A Star Called Henry. (A very Dublin book). Pulled from the reading shelf a long-waiting book (2004!) to kill time with during my trip to Minneapolis, My Kind of Place by Susan Orlean. It's more observations on a place than a travel book - and I like that about it.

Gratitude: Springtime, doctors who pay attention, medical miracles, the mending health of beloved niece, and every single kind soul who sent a prayer, a good thought or positive energy our way (we know it made the difference; thank you!).

Happy: Rizzoli & Isles, tiny sprouts in the yard and buds on the trees, the friendly people of Minneapolis (and thanks for the "sha hey hollar damn"!), and the return of Rusty the Wonder Dog. 



Perfume: Discovered Les Perfumes de Rosine Majalis is perfect for a cold wet spring day. Still enjoying the Library of Flowers exploration. I maintain their Kirimashi Air is the perfect travel perfume - lingers near but not so much sillage that your fellow travelers must endure it. This month's Library of Flowers try vial - Willow & Water  - is  a fantastic combination of luscious white flowers and greens. It's perfect for spring, and I love it enough I'm probably getting myself a full bottle for my birthday.


Random: Lack of laundry facility at (otherwise cool) new space means early Sunday AM trip to the laundry mat. If I get there early enough, I listen to several people pray for the famous people they perceived as "good" people.



  • Wouldn't it be nice if we did more of this for regular people?
  • Prayer is energy. Ever wonder if why people are propelled to success is the power of the energy behind them? (Kind of had a flashback to Stargate's last 2 seasons - and if you caught the reference, you might be a geek.) 

Stress: Moving. Oyi. It was a week at the beginning of the month. Hopefully it's worth it.

Take-away - It has been a roller coaster month. And somedays, the whole trick is just hanging on.
