About Me




Perception over Judgment

That is what makes me feel most alive — most open to creation, to people, and to God.  It speaks of awe, of fascination, and of delight.

My thinking is spherical — not linear. My thoughts come in the forms of emotions, of images, of colours, and of many themes all intersecting. I have always leaned towards humanities and a rather artsy-fartsy way of living. And, because of health issues, I have been finding it more and more difficult to think in a linear manner. Instead of beating myself up over what I can’t do, or what I struggle with, I have decided to embrace and celebrate the ways in which I can express myself.

I am a 45-year-old woman who has been married to her knight-in-shining-armor for 20 years. I have experienced a great deal of trauma throughout my life, along with some amazing adventures. I am also open to great beauty and wonder. This blog is my way of processing my pain and challenges, as well as a wading into Joy and Mystery.

You are welcome here. I am interested in the essence of who you are. Please share with me your feelings and perceptions.

      Thank-you, thursdayschild108! I haven’t signed up to follow any blogs, as I think the e-mails would make me feel overwhelmed. However, I do bookmark some of them, so I can check them out as I am able to. I have your blog bookmarked. I love the title you chose: “You Can Still Change Your MInd”. It speaks of openness and possibilities. That is exciting!! 🙂

    You said you are artsy-fartsy. Have you tried zentangles? They are doodles. And they look like the doodling at the top of your blog. If you google zentangles you will see what I mean. Since you are housebound, maybe you would enjoy that kind of art. There are online clubs. And it doesn’t take a lot of movement or supplies. 🙂

      Thank-you, Sensitivity Road! I had never heard of zentangles. I just looked them up on-line. I like the coloured ones. They flow. The black-and-white ones hurt my head — too much detail for me to take in.
      I checked out your blog. I think it’s wonderful that you are writing about living with multiple chemical sensitivies. We are generally not “seen” by people, so it’s great to get the word out about mcs and how toxins affect everyone.

    Looks like you and I have a lot in common! Age, awareness, self-awakening – all of these are roads I walk upon as well. thanks for the welcome!

      Hi melodylowes! Yes, you are very welcome here! 🙂
      I believe that we are given great gifts at each year of our lives. It is unfortunate that we live in a culture that attempts to nullify the beauty of growing older. There are so many treasures to be discovered and embraced!

        SO true – we have lost the idea that gray is a sign of wisdom and that wisdom is even a desirable thing. So sad. You’re so right – there is much to yet discover. And the journey is full of wonder!
