There is NOTHING holding this leaf in midair. It’s not falling. It’s magic. I don’t care what anybody says – this leaf is suspended in midair by more magic. I was bestot by magical events yesterday. Suspended leaves hanging by nothing approximately three feet above the ground happened upon me nearly everywhere I looked. OrContinue reading “Suspended!”
She’s not in traffic – she’s on a bike path – for a beautiful Autumn ride. This woman expects to be seen and is taking NO chances.
Sometimes, all we need is a nap. Even if it isn’t yet noon.
(Besides morning sex)? I’ve got electricity, coffee, creamer, my laptop started right up, my kittens are happily tearing through my apartment, it’s quiet (except for them), and I’ve got a full box of waffles in the freezer. They’re (waffles, not kittens. We don’t munch on kitties, mkay?) particularly delicious smothered in creamy peanut butter andContinue reading “What Is Better Than This?”
Are the leaves turning due to the Autumn season or are they dying from the thick smoke and ash that covered our city from the Oregon wildfires (I live in Eugene)? I can’t tell. An umbrella of pristine blue sky hovers above and beyond the furthest leaves. It’s been nearly two weeks since I’ve seenContinue reading “I Can’t Tell …”
Me. I had an odd dream about being shown photographs of a birthday cake that said “Thanks for all your hard work LnN.” I’m LumenandNyx on the recovery board I visit and somehow I understood that LnN was me on the birthday cake. Realizing that the staff at the treatment center still remembered me andContinue reading “Who Dreams About Their Old Treatment Center?”
I just took this photograph from my front porch. This home is maybe 30 yards across the lawn. That is smoke from wildfires…not fog. More smoke. It’s ugly out there!
Just look at it. I have everything I need. Electricity, a coffee pot, coffee, a cup, creamer, sugar, a spoon, some other stuff and a counter to set everything on! I’m so happy! 🙂
What does it look like to you? If I still took acid, this would really freak me out.
It looks like dirty snow has been falling on the car all night. I received numerous “Prepare to evacuate” alerts on my phone yesterday due to two forest fires creeping towards Eugene. High winds have blown ash and smoke all over the city and the sky is a dirty orange color outside right now.
UGH! My city is saturated with Smoke and Ash from two wildfires about 75 miles north of Eugene (where I live). We received an emergency warning on our cell phones yesterday for a high wind advisory. This is just gnarly to go out in. So I’m not going to.
I’ve recently updated my blog and added a “Photographs” page. We had a great sober day all over the Willamette Forest yesterday (6 Sept 2020). 🙂
Continued from 5 August 2020 The following is an excerpt from my memoir Saturation~ Peggy started verbalizing that she was there to replace my “terrible” Mother who had, since our arrive to Colorado, moved to California. I resented Peggy – loudly. The older I got the more she nitpicked and tried to control me. IContinue reading “Chapter 2, A Wee Brief History of Me pt 2”
Guess who took that picture. 🙂 Gorgeous, right? And it was so loud! This was taken at Salt Creek Falls in Oregon. We traipsed all through the Willamette National Forest today. Here’s a selfie taken earlier this morning in front of the Willamette River. We were half way between Eugene and Bend. Loads of people.Continue reading “Sober Sunday, Hey!”
I find it amusing when I read other addicts moan on and on about how stressors continue to besiege them on a somewhat regular basis. I think to myself, “Get OFF your pity Potty already. It’s called LIFE. Wake up!” Perhaps this aggressive or overly assertive stance is too much for the more fragile personality.Continue reading “Wait, What? It’s Called LIFE?”
