You Probably Won't Like This.

I need to vent and I'm pre- empting this post stating it because you're probably not  going to believe or even like what I'm about to say but I have to get it off my chest.

I don't like Easter.
In fact, most holidays kinda crawl under my skin. It's not because I don't honor what they mean traditionally or religiously. I do. And...
I love Jesus.
In fact, I love him so much that I will go to bat for him and say there is NO WAY he'd declare war "in his name" on earth when his word was to love and yes, he'd totally be for gay marriage.
But,  I don't like Easter or majority of holidays because of the gross mockery society and  has made of "celebration and honor" in efforts to push retail sales and an economic agenda.
I was trying to convey this to my father this morning. I don't understand why, when I had a child, that meant somehow I'd  be forced to participate in the gigantic distribution of sugary sweets and or plastic toys …

Is happy to be.

Almost a year ago, I made a call to the universe in regards to finding a life partner.
I did what I thought best to do, law of attraction style and what all the 'relationship' coaches  had advised in their seminars and cds: I wrote all the qualities and awesomeness I could bring to the partnership out on paper and felt good about what I had to offer.  Then....
I wrote a list of all the qualities physical, emotional and spiritual  I want this person to have. I tucked it away in a drawer and only thought about it when the pangs of my heart twanged over relationship endings, new beginnings crashed and burned or the people who came forward were hungry for the story I could well, tell them about....them not 'share'. 
And of course I've learned quite a few lessons. Some of them louder than others.   Some, so emotionally hard, others physically & spiritually painful but each of them,  if even on a friendship/acquaintance level have definitely cracked me open with fla…

Have YOU Seen Long Island Medium?

I bet you have. Lots and lots of people have. In fact, lots and lots of strangers or acquaintances
or people just browsing in my shop let me know. If you are close to me, you know that I don't have cable. As for L.I.M I think I have seen a skit I believe on SNL about her but that is the extent of it.

I'm stoked that people are excited about a show dedicated to a woman who walks the same path I do - in between worlds. We need more pioneers! More trailblazers!  Again, those closest to me know I'm stoked when any woman overcomes whatever it is and makes something of herself.  I get excited because - well....I'm excitable!
And I give free hugs.
I digress.
So I've never seen Long Island Medium.
But I know enough to know that this woman has the
kind of balls that are um....different than mine.
And yes. I said it; I HAVE BALLS!

If I didn't I wouldn't be writing this. I have rules between me and spirit and I've learned mine pretty hard knocks. Like:

What About Love?

What about it? You ask.
I know. It's trendy. It's fleeting.
It doesn't last.
Nothing does right?
It's for the birds, a concept thats nice on the big screen but it doesn't play out that way in real life.
Maybe you think that Love is a fad that has gone out with juke boxe's in the fifties and has gotten injected with anti inflamitory's so the notion of it could be remembered in sappy songs if you still even listen to the radio.

Well I won't let it die. And I'm not going to give up.
I'm going to fight for it.
I'm not talking about just the romantic kind either even though I'm a sucker for a good chic flick and officiating weddings makes my heart sing!

But the kind of LOVE I'm talking takes a little more work and
courage than that.
I'm talking straight up loving thyself
then taking that light and Loving thy neighbor.
I'm talking absolutely radiating LOVE to your core.
I'm talking infectious like the flu but more like using i…
