Georgia On My Mind

must've been all that exercise ;)

Healthy, Wealthy and Wise

This morning, I arose at 6:30am, nearly two hours before my usual wake-up time, and 'worked out'. I cannot tell a lie, it was difficult to get out of bed. There was some definate nausea and contempt. But once I started moving I actually felt energized. And by the time I had finished, I felt fantastic!  I guess all that mumbo jumbo people always spew about exercise making you feel good blah blah blah, is actually based on something! Who knew? I may just do this stuff every damn day!

Courage, My Love

Today I was captivated by the life of Amelia Earhart. I’d known of her vanguard flights before, and of her mysterious demise, but I hadn’t realized the scope of her adventures and her courage.
I was most certainly inspired! And inspiration grows on no trees in my wood lot. So here are a few of the inspirational quotes I came across, to accompany these photos of the beautiful Miss Earhart:

"Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace."

"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward."

"Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others."

"Worry retards reaction and makes clear-cut decisions impossible."

"Adventure is worthwhile in itself."

Lighting the candle at both ends of the street

lately i've been feeling a little frazzled. a little raw around the edges. a little dissatisfied and dizzied by what I have come to see as my life. it's as though i were a drunken teenager at a makeshift party in someone's field, who spent the night stumbling in zig zags and woke up not knowing quite where she is nor how she arrived. i feel as though i've let go of this gushing hose that once watered a colorful bed of flowers, but now flails about madly, soaking me senseless. if i do not think of ways in which to sneak up on this slippery water snake and take it in my grasp once more, i will surely drown.

but there are aspects of my life that are more than satisfactory. i have much to be grateful for and many resources at my disposal. with this blog, i mean to sort through the mess and assemble the broken bits. to harness the hose and to lead the poor shit-faced teen back toward the path.
