Sorry for the lack of content over the past week or so.. I’ve been dreadfully sick. Actually, who knows.. maybe you’ve enjoyed the respite from my brand of over-inflated posturing and pretentious poetry! 😉 Anyway.. I’m back…and expect words tonight..
You’ve been warned!
I’ve been the guiltiest proponent of man-bashing in my posts, through my poetry and my daily interactions. Though I think the mindsets of many of today’s men are in the darkest and most destructive of places, I am not sure that ridiculing men for it serves any purpose other than to purge my own vitriol towards them.
I mean, we have to live with men, as part of our experienced realities. I’m not sure that creating a divide between “the good men” and “the bad men” serves any better purpose than it does it any other black and white thought context.
Maybe we need to start to figure out a way to help the “lost and broken” men find a way back to their caring and protective natures, rather than the hateful and aggressive ones we are seeing now.
How do we do this? I am not sure. But should this not be the goal? Not to create more hate and shame?
Just thinking things… dangerous, truly dangerous when my wheels get turning I tell you.
Beautiful morning for a walk on the rocks, I must say… It would seem that sweater weather is here.. 😉 cozy up to someone you don’t. Ind the smell of, and cuddle yourself into a comfortable weekend streeeetch..yup..you made it. 😉
Love, loosely timed rhymes and soul squeezes from yours truly, in our nation’s great capital region.
Here’s some pics from this morning and last night’s sunset trip.
Today’s early morning beach visit still boasted full moon and assertive winds….beauty nonetheless. Hope your day is filled with just that, and something soul squeezing thrown in for good measure.
Love from that strange boy from Ottawa .
Got to see my son for some time today. He was home with a sore throat. We played trucks, had freezies.. his was orange.
Then he had a bath and we played “save the boats from the rocks and ice”, had a wonderful lunch with Granny.
Then I laid him down and I told him a story about a Lollipop Bear that my Aunt Pat told me when she used to babysit me when I was young. I have since, fleshed it out into a 100 page children’s story I’d like to publish someday. I told it to him in wide eyed fashion (probably more me than him, actually, heh)
Then he napped. Hope my beautiful boy feels better this evening while he’s with his mom.
Not nearly as brave or noble as a solider or veteran, but often I feel as absent, but just as proud…
….i woke this morning knowing I’d get to see my kids today. What a wonderful feeling. I went to bed last night at 10:30 and slept until 7:00 this morning, in order to give them my complete best.
We went to a local park with amazing play structures. We spun on wheels ’till nauseous, we hung on bars of monkeys
half-cautious. We rocked on sailing boats with sea monsters, and ran down by fresh waters. Ducks were fed, warmth was
spread, then daddy went home tired and went to bed.
It was a lovely time with my two precious stars. I will look to the sky to see them twinkling at me tonight while beaming smile on my face….
Here’s a video and song for each of my not-so-little ones…
So this is my daily smoothie recipe… try it you will be pleasantly surprised 🙂
INDIGO INFUSION SMOOTHIE
frozen bananas (1) or 3/4 blender full
half cup or cup of frozen blueberries
one vanilla or blueberry cup yogurt (brand not important)
vanilla soy milk added to blender until reaches the top of bananas (plain if you want less sugar)
1 tbsp peanut butter (not needed, but sooo good)
a few drops of vanilla or other flavoured syrup
blend until smoooooooth.
lovely indigo smoothie drink.. delicious and nutritious, altered to your preferences… (bows graciously)
I went a little earlier to the beach this morning and caught the most beautiful moon. Hope its light guides you through the blaze of another busy weekday. All the best from Canada.
