Inspiration... and synchronicity

I found an amazing blog today... it inspired me beyond belief. I am exhausted from moving (it's a local move, so we've been in the process of moving for a week now), but I have an over-abundance of nervous energy now. I must create. I have to write.

GG and I, as you've been told, dear reader, have been doing The Artist's Way. It got slightly put aside due to her family emergencies, her trip to Mexico, and now my move. But we still are on our path. I put a link to GG's blog on the bottom of my blog by the way.

And now, back to the amazing blog. I truly feel like I've made a new friend, in reading Geoff's blog. I can't even tell you how I found it... just some randome searching at work. And I read his entire blog in one sitting. Here is a link to his blog: I encourage all creatives to read it. His journey is inspiring... his words touched me in such a way, it's difficult to put into words.

A major component of The Artist's Way is synchronicity. GG and I are very aware of synchronicity, and hopefully we will continue to be.

One example of recent synchronicity... my sister is missing. She has been missing for two years. I was talking to GG's husband about it the other day and he went and grabbed a newspaper that he had just been reading and it was about sending a DNA swab to the national DNA database. That way, if she is found, at least we can be notified... synchronicity. Of course, that points to the worst case scenario. And we all hope she is well. Lynda, if somehow synchronicity brings you to this page... we all love you and miss you dearly. Please contact us.

And now... I must say that so many have touched my life. Every single thing that has happened to me in my life has molded me into being the person that I am. And I love who I am. So... if you are reading this and you have regrets for some random past transgression against me, please know that you are most likely forgiven. Life is hard, sometimes bad choices are made and I am certainly not exempt from making my share. There are many people in my life who have either passed away or I've lost touch with. Each and every one is a profound loss. Daily I miss my mom and my grandparents... but I believe they are with me.

One song that speaks all of these thoughts the best is "In my life" by the Beatles... one of my all-time favorite songs.

In My Life
by the Beatles

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all
But of all these friends and lovers
there is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

With that amazing song now going though your head...I think I will say goodnight.
