It’s been a bitch of a summer so far.
It seems as though the only thing I have time for this summer is working or worrying about all the work to do and cursing the CFH along the way.
My love and my light, Mr. Jazz is having a hard time of it too, with his job driving him insane these days. And above anything I hate to see him unhappy.
It seems like a lot of my friends are having a hard time of it.
The planet is going to hell, the weather has sucked majorly so far.
People are dying left right and centre.
And basically, I’m feeling somewhat overwhelmed. And sad. And heavy and dark. And totally off kilter. And it annoys the living hell out of me because I know I have no reason to feel bad about things since I have it really good, and thus I get frustrated which only adds to the whole freaking mess. Aaaaaarrrrrgggggghhhhhhhhh!
So, in an effort to realign my chakras (or whatever the hell that new age mumbo jumbo is) and stave off the urge to bludgeon an innocent passerby (well, maybe no so innocent, but that’s a whole other kettle of fish), here are some things that make me happy...
Glass winged butterflies (yes, they are for real, their wings really are transparent)
Clover. Preferably the four leaf kind, but I'll settle for three as I never ever in my 47 years found a four leaf clover
The cry of a nighthawk in the dark - though it can sound a little sad too. And yes, I know, I posted this pic yesterday. Deal with it...
The area around Palm Springs, where I haven't yet been, but soon will with my love.
The Sonora Desert
The open road - it's infinitely hopeful
