Last Christmas Blaze, the dog, found a delicious bone in his stocking.
We had to hang the stockings higher this year because Blaze kept trying to get into his. Poor thing. How do you explain to a dog that all good things come to those who wait?
A good friend started a new blog. Pam is a writer who delights in Christmas trees and has 38! On December 1 she started posting photos of one tree a day. You'll love these beauties! Visit Pam at http://pamstebbins.blogspot.com/
Do any of you birth drums? This is Owlfan, a drum I birthed last year, a drum with a vibrant, bass voice. When I took him from his cover this morning, I discovered a piece of twisted rawhide had separated from the Elk skin. It has been several weeks since I've played Owlfan. The care and feeding of drums is important. Once we birth them, it's our responsibility to nurture them so they, in turn, can do their job. Owlfan is a healing drum, a drum used in prayer. I don't know if I can repair him. Do any of you know? I can always birth another drum, but Owlfan was my first...(sigh). Despite his inability to speak today, he's a gentle reminder that we're each here for a purpose and if we aren't allowed to fulfill this purpose, we lose our power. Attend to your purpose and have a beautiful day.
Walking through Chester County Bookstore today, I saw a calendar with photos by Masaru Emoto, who claims ice crystals in water change form when beautiful words are spoken to the water, words such as "love" and "gratitude." When negative thoughts or words are sent to water, it forms disassembled crystals, or none at all. When I got home, I decided to try a little experiment. I filled a glass with water and took it outside to "commune" with the water in my pond. After a while, I brought the glass of water indoors. As I was passing through the kitchen, my husband looked at the glass and said, "That's the most beautiful water I've ever seen." I reminded him the glass was from our cabinet. We use it all the time. He said (and I kid you not), I'm not talking about the glass. It's the water. Something's different about it. It's beautiful."
I'm inspired today to speak softly and gently to my water because, as Dr. Emoto reminds us, most of the human body is made up of water. Grab a glass, speak beautiful words to your water and drink up— then let me know what happens!
Today is my birthday :)) and I'm celebrating with this special
guy I found on November 15, 1989 in Santa Fe, NM.
I didn't get to participate in Rock Week but I didn't
want this special stone ignored. Isn't he gorgeous?

These photos were taken through a window screen so are not
clear, but I decided to post them anyway. This little guy
doesn't look like the other deer in our area, yet he goes about
his business, just being himself.
