She never accepts apologies..

… apologies she never makes.

She will tear your heart out….

… when you break hers. Because you will.

Control, control, control!

Is what feeds her lonely ego.

She’s a man eater!!

Lost In The Residential School Hallways

ahall

It is said once you can think of an event, a heart breaking event and not shed tears, you have dealt with it and have closure. I don’t know if I ever will be able to think of an ojibway boy child, lost and abused in the halls of a residential school and not shed tears, especially since that boy child grew up to be, my father.

His spirit was left in those hallways and I don’t think he was ever able to retrieve it before he parted this earth in 2006.

As an adult now, I can understand how he lived his years trying to prove his worth and trying to prove it to himself was the greatest struggle of all.

I know he was not all he could of been, as a man, as a husband and father, yet I know he did his personal best and for that, I love him. But my heart will always ache for the boy inside the man.

Thinking of you Dad, always. ..rest in peace.

My Roots Are Showing

Forever she wakes at 4am. My busy body is set it seems to wake between 4 and 5 am. I have been for years now and just view it as part of who I am. It is my quiet time. It is the magic hours where I focus on, how to improve my victories over any specific set of deterring circumstances in my life and or improving the growth of my psychic self. Every hour on the moon and sun clock can be magical, are magical, where we can take the time, when it is bestowed upon us, to balance all matters of the mind, body and soul.

This past week, our 48 hour outing, enjoying the Harley ride with the wind in our faces, the rest stops and an over night hotel stay took us along southern Ontario shores. The views were plentiful and rest stops educational.

Like the row of trees with roots showing. Spooky and magical at the same time. The newly paved side roads..rolling black ribbons and of course the burnt nose..wind or sun? Who cares, nothing that coats of aloe vera couldn’t cool down.

Finding the beauty in each and every day, every moment takes time..it takes the time of maturity. And to enjoy that beauty with someone you love, another set of eyes and thoughts, makes it magical and the time of this ladies life, along side or in this case, behind my handsome biker.

My hearts riding in the wind, with his.

Harley & My Senses

bikeThe summer of 2017 has just started and will never be forgotten! Because it is my 1st time ever taken for a ride on a motorcycle, well 3 rides to date. And on what else but the infamous Harley Davidson. My man being a biker since his teen years and a true lover of the Harley has convinced me, if you want the ride of a lifetime, it has to be on a Harley! It doesn’t hurt to love the driver, either, 😉

He told me how my senses would be taking full notice of the sights, sounds and smells. Do they ever! I love it! The different smells of trees is so there, but so is the ugly smell of pollution at times. I learnt how the 1st ride would probably be a pain in the a**, lol but there is a powder that can help with some of that discomfort. I felt the pain that day, but haven’t since ride one.

I can’t say enough about my experience thus far, other than, magnificent!!.. after all, it is the closest I could get to riding a broom, eh. ..lol.. 🙂

I do hope you get to experience something different, that you never tried before, this coming summer. Life is too darn short, not to!

Watch for future posts of my senses alive on a Harley in the summer of 2017!

 

 

Support Please!!

For some..such a big word..support! Or maybe just to heavy a load to carry? To say I support you doesnt mean you need to lift a finger, it is a matter of emotional and or mental uplifting. But for some they just cant get a hold of it, they loose grip for many reasons.

So what do we do when we don’t have the support of those closest to us? First, it is realizing they are not as close as we think they are. Ha! It is time to find a new tribe. No we can not replace our families but we can mingle with those who appreciate many of the things we do in our lives, whether it is writing, painting or some sport, among many passions.

Life is too short and beautiful to waste it trying to share with those who don’t see it, as colourful as you do.

The Wheels Of Life Go Round & Round!

I am reading aritcles/books with regards to the human thought process, spirituality, issues, recovery ideas and overall the human condition. Having worked at the addictions centre, I did read the big book, those years ago, as well as study the program and the steps. I have been going over some of what I learnt, gathering information regarding, even coming upon The Big Book, a few day ago at a sale and buying it to read again. I have been reading, Canadian Addiction surveys, from difference sources..
” About 1 in 10 Canadians has these styles of heavier drinking, with significantly
higher percentages in the four Atlantic Provinces and in
Alberta. For a country of Canada’s size and diversity, there is considerable convergence in findings across provinces regarding the prevalence of alcohol and “illicit” drug use and related harms. There are also important differences in terms of levels and patterns of use, and risk of harms that are of significance not only to researchers, but to decision makers and ultimately to all Canadians.”
.. what caught my eye in that articles was the, 1 in 10 Canadians having this life style, to a point where it may cause harm to the user and their relationships. You love the addict, but hate the disease and that is why ALANON is out there and of course AA for the addict, themselves. No one is perfect. Addictions are diseases, not just in alcohol or drugs, but food, sex, etc. Then we have the mental labels/disorders, such as depression and bipolar, then the physical ailments such as, convulsions, auto-immune diseases and more.
So if statistics are showing, 1 in 10 have alcohol and drug issues, the other 9 maybe have the mental, physical, the gene pool maladies, leaving you a population of ailing people..lol.. and I am one of them and so is the other person on your right, and on my left. 😉 I think the world needs to be more compassionate with each other, stop being so dam judgemental!
The old saying, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors or don’t judge a book by its cover, should be more than just words! We need to take action. Read up on maladies of human kind, understand more of what others are going through. Because some day, you just may be the person who wishes, others were not so judgemental, if your life took a 360 turn, for the not so better.
Don’t take your health for granted, mental, physical and or spiritual. Some body loves you just the way you are!
Next week, to re-read, The Big Book, is on my agenda, of understanding. And remember, tomorrow is another day, to get it right and the day after that and after that and…  😉
