more than fireworks This 4th of July has been interesting to watch unfold over the years. It used to be a “given.” Everyone knew that the 4th of July was the “birthday of the republic.” Independence Day. The day we celebrated the unique freedoms of living in the best country in the world. It was… Continue reading the 4th!
the long game
trust and faith, with some research for answers when needed…. I’ve been tending tropical plants for as long as I can remember. Tending, because you don’t really “grow” them. They seem to be like cats – they bloom when they decide to bloom. Not because you think it’s time. Many of them only play the… Continue reading the long game
are you ready?
or are you waiting to be saved by a miracle? Because, as my husband likes to say, “hope is not a strategy.” We are watching the entire planet morph into tyranny, following a script that has been telegraphed in all its parts. The next part is global famine. That will open the doors for the… Continue reading are you ready?
why we’re there….
and what’s next? I hate to always be the voice of doom and gloom, but there is some serious shit coming down the pike, and it’s better to be a little concerned about it than to be blindsided by it when it hits. The sad thing is that it is being done to us and… Continue reading why we’re there….
surface illusions… real infrastructure We’re having our dining room floor joists replaced. It’s an interesting process here in the Lowcountry, where most homes have a crawl space instead of a basement. Our house is from the mid-60s. It sits on a brick foundation which sits on a concrete footing, and underneath the house itself is… Continue reading from within
finding yours A few days ago, someone said “love should be the frequency, not fear.” That’s correct, to a degree, but “love” is not enough. You have to have a spiritual center, a higher power as they say in AA, the frequency that brings you real peace. It took me 50 years to find mine.… Continue reading different frequencies

Part Deux It’s Sunday. SO the first thing I’m going to say is Get Right WITH GOD. Find a way to find God. Now. Today. This morning. It’s getting that serious. Everywhere. God doesn’t want a lot from you. He wants you to admit you have sinned. There’s not a person on the planet who… Continue reading watching from the sidelines

may be the best place to be The world is getting crazier by the day and it’s hard to know what is real – except God and nature. Even food can be fake. I bought a couple cans of “tuna” a few months back that contained no fish at all. The cat wouldn’t even eat… Continue reading watching from the sidelines
and their cumulative effects At my age, the joke about “getting old is not for sissies” has just become a mantra used for comic relief. Getting old is NOT for sissies. Things may slow down, and you may be fortunate enough to have a plan in place… …but that doesn’t stop the challenges. Even transhumanism… Continue reading lifestyle choices
keep on truckin’
has a whole new meaning I’ve always thought it would be interesting to be a long haul trucker. It seemed like the perfect independent job. You pick up something one place and drive it across America (or Canada or Europe) and drop it off. You carry your lodging with you, and you’re your own boss,… Continue reading keep on truckin’
