wise words for a tuesday



At first people refuse to believe that a strange
new thing can be done, then they begin to hope
It can be done, then they see it can be done
– then it is done and all the world wonders
why it was not done centuries ago.


~ Frances Hodgson Burnett

a first class year to you too!


i received this new year’s message from a family of  beautiful souls.  I loved it so much, i want to share it with you.

Swift like a bullet train, a brand New Year is leaving the station. If you cannot be the engineer, be the most joyful passenger. Look for a place at the window. Enjoy every single landscape time can offer you, with the same enjoyment as if it was your first or your last trip. Do not be scared of the cliffs or the curves and the stones that can prevent you from seeing the road ahead. Try to take pleasure in the trip of life, noticing each bush, creek, edge of the road, and every nuance in the scenery. Unfold the map and plan your journey. Pay attention to all stops and be aware of the whistle announcing departure…and when you decide to get off the station where hope, friendship or love had beckoned, do not hesitate… disembark there, with all your dreams.

I WISH YOUR TRIP THROUGH  2015  IS A FIRST CLASS ONE

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

missing notes!


if you follow my posts regularly, you probably know about my freakish “electronic disorder”.  if not, you can read about it  here & here

just this week i blew out 2 light bulbs, which were both replaced less than 2 months ago, my tv remote decided to stop working for no apparent reason and the batteries in the dvd remote completely corroded. i can only get internet service in one small spot in my apartment – unless of course it’s raining or even just extremely humid, in which case i cannot connect at all.  i’m actually grateful to have tv / internet at all since i canceled all services with time warner cable on april 12th due to my current financial circumstances.  the cable guy felt sorry for me so he left me with hook up to the basic channels 2 – 13 (minus channel 12 for some reason).  i hook on to the one internet network in the building that isn’t locked and wake up in fear each day that the person who unknowingly shares it with me will move.  all of that, i can live with – but now my notes have vanished.

i have an ipad with a ‘notes app’ that syncs with the notes on my phone.  i use the note pad regularly to record everything.  it’s the record of my life.  this morning i opened my ipad notes and all pages were blank.  no notes. nada.  i rushed to my phone hoping for a back-up copy and found only blank pages there as well.

i’m wondering about the message here . . .
