It's getting longer and longer between posts ..... harumph! It must be getting time to hit the road, doncha think? Life is getting too settled in, but then it's kinda nice. New Mexico is actually GREEN, the rains are magnificent, the air temps are in the low 80s and lower ... imagine that? The Olympics are in the air ... am glued to the tube at night watching all thos gymnasts and swimmers 'n divers. Synchronized diving. Never saw that before. Am totally fascinated. Am bedazzled at Athens' ability to pull it off and dreaming dreams of what might have been. My mother was a swim teacher/coach and her dream was to have Olympic children swimmers. It worked for both of us (baby sister Sue and me) until we discovered boys, each in our own time. Remember this was a parent's dream.

Oh, well, this is as close as I get to the water these days.
The hot tub in the backyard in Belen. Brightwing is parked
just to the right.

I saw some movies since we last chatted. One Sunday several of us gathered in Albuquerque to see the documentary "Outfoxed" and another one titled "The Corporation." That was a long day and a lot of popcorn. Some of us liked it and some of us didn't. Now I have a DVD of "Outfoxed" because I forgot I ordered it. Oh, well.

The following week some of us went to see "What the Bleep Do We Know?" and that is a keeper. I would like to own that DVD when it comes out because it would be really cool to view it over and over to discover all the nuances and subtleties of that movie. I liked it because Ramtha, as channeled by J.Z. Knight, was the entity that "woke me up" in 1986 via videotapes and life hasn't been the same since ... thank goodness. I am forever grateful to that energy and for the path I was catapulted on to ... my very own spiritual path ... as if I/we were not on it anyway, I just wasn't aware. Oh, to be awake and aware! The last 18 years has been quite a trip. Wouldn't have missed it for the world. The whole secret is learning how to be IN the world and not OF it. It's terrific once you figure that one out.

So it's time to close and get ready for Leah tomorrow, who will be a houseguest for awhile. She is coming to visit me and tour the land and have dinner with Nathan ... which will keep us all busy for a few days.

Just a reminder of our beautiful mesa ... a most sacred spot
on this planet ....

Desert owls living on the mesa ....

And another glorious sunset ... ahh-h-h.

"Myths are public dreams; dreams are private myths. By finding your own dream and following it through, it will lead you to the myth-world in which you live. But just as in dream, the subject and object, though they seem to be separate, are really the same." ~Joseph Campbell
