By just sitting here “in joy” in myself
The blessings of an unshared life are hardly blessings, at all.
Keep on sharin’ the love, my friends! ~JVq
“I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could’ve been any clearer
If they wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change”
~Michael Jackson (Man in the Mirror)
That’s a dangerous attitude. The fact is that there are individuals out there who are not what they seem; sociopathic, predatory, adept in the pretense of empathy. My experience is that to “assume” anything, usually makes an ASS of U and ME
Where I take responsibility for anything, at all, I discover freedom.
Love, free and clear, my friends! ~JVq
Relationships bring my life meaning now as they always have. How may I be of service? ~JVq
What we might think of as “others” offer the “I’ a window, a very real glimpse, into the alternate dimensions of our collaborative expression. Who wouldn’t be inspired by a parallel reality with whom they could hold hands? Love always, JVq

The anxiety that I imagine one would feel crossing a cold, dark, and mysterious ocean toward uncertain shores in a creaky, old wooden sailing ship.
Lately, the struggle has been with convincing myself

Thirty years that Marc has been gone from our sight. I wish that I could tell you honestly, Michele, that ‘time heals all’ but I can say that those we love are always with us.
We’re all safe, Mica. The house was untouched, my tomatoes were not a complete loss. Whatever else was insured. The Youniverse is always providing a nudge in one direction or another (to the end of showing where we’re still unconscious). . . . .unless an abrupt shove is necessary
I’m so knocked out that you’re familiar with Yogaville, Mica. I don’t live far from there, and yet, my wife is the only other reference to that place I’ve ever known
“All visitors to this home bring joy. Some by their coming, others by their leaving ” LOL, Don!
Both my wife’s and my cars, both less than 2 years old, were recently totaled. With ongoing supply chain issues, they were worth more with 18K and 11K miles than they were the day we bought them new. How very fortunate to find the option of a replacement, at all
I’m also faced with the challenges of recent patterns of freedom/responsibility emerging from the fractures of valued relationships. Skill and persistence along the course of this unexpected detour, Trinity.
Interesting. The second reference I’ve heard in my life to genetic memory; the first being the explanation as to why honeybees will ignore obviously melliferous plants that are “not within their genetic memory” in favor of bland and common dandelion, clover, and alfalfa, etc. I had suspected the term was just pseudo-scientific woo. Thanks for the insight.
