Writer's Block: Last supper  
If you had one night left to live, what would you do? Would you prefer to spend your final night with a loved one or alone? What would you choose for your last meal?


I would get together with all the loved ones I could possibly gather (and the rest hopefully through my keyboard) and spend much of the evening laughing. I would not spend it alone. I would eat a sandwich or a chicken wrap (either is wonderful) and then a caramel sundae. I would nap with my loved ones and off I would go, my matter free to take on some new and exciting form!

Also, the reason my sister keeps me sane...

I have decided that you will be one of the most wonderful mothers, whether of books that you write or maybe even your own spawn, or perhaps a grove of trees you plant and love and nurture.

As I was trying to fall alseep and failing most miserably because my mind was running wild in all sorts of manners of ideas, I finally cozied myself up in a cocoon of blankets and breathed deeply relaxing all parts of me. I was able to empty my mind but my mind felt very happy to keep you sitting in it.

I think it is so interesting how time passes and how I feel that in a moments time we may be sipping tea watching a myriad of children and animals romp around together while sitting on a big porch in some country talking about the very same things.

Kiwi
So much agreed! And I can just imagine inviting along our beautifully greying mothers, introducing them to favourite mares or low-sitting spots in trees... with little children waddling or running around our legs. ('cause let's face it, any children of ours would be pretty active--whether birthed or adopted, it'd just be a lifestyle thing! Haha)

With what ever assortment of spouses or not that we choose or they choose to accompany us in our life paths.

And having images of all these things in my head really whittles down the 'stresses' I'm dealing with now down to size. I have to remember these feelings, keep them in a special hat box in my head or something, so I can pull them out like a comfortable blanket and wrap them around my mind until I feel so connected and peaceful with the future and less stuck in Present Stresses, but still in the Present Moment.

Kristine
Well remember how the feelings smell and taste and physically feel like.
That will help you not capture them.... but incorporate them into your being.

Kiwi
It feels like wind in my face and a hand tugging at my skirt (who knows if it is small and low, or ringed and below my waist, don't know! :P) and the whuffle of an attitude-filled pony and the sound of leaves brushing in the wind, and fast-sung lyrical songs and laughter. I taste blueberries and strawberries and smell dogwood trees and fresh hay. I feel grass under callused feet because of course I haven't been wearing my shoes. It's wonderful.


My life has been a roller-coaster but I have not. I appreciate this. However I need to go to sleep so I can be a non-zombie for lecture tomorrow.

I POSTED A RESPONSE IN THE DISCUSSION! I will probably get points off for length, lack of referencing, lack of 'scientific' argument about science (which I could technically argue...given we don't know what's 'scientific,' grins at irony) and a myriad of other things, but I POSTED SOMETHING. And I started my own thread for it. Maybe I'll get points for having chutzpah.

(Meditation saves my life.)

Have you shared Always, Rachel with her? Parts of it reminded me of that.

Nawr, not yet. :) I don't think I've gone on about Rachel Carson yet. Mainly we were fangirling over musician-sheroes. She goes Lady Gaga. I tend to go towards the folkies.

Perhaps I shall someday. But it certainly is a heavy book to carry around!
