Hello Everyone,

October 2015

I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.

It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.

It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.

It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.

Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.

May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.

I have added a tab - Whisper my words, which is a link to my site where I post stories, poems, AndMore events and the Watcher's Journal. Take a peek and enjoy.

Inspiration me...when to let go...revoking

'You don't have to make a decision today' ~ (Catherine) Biting Back by Claudia Cunningham

'.....instead of using the whip on myself for not being able to make my decision on a dime, I tried to relax and pay attention to what was happening in my everyday life.' ~ Biting Back Claudia Cunningham

'If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.' ~-Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

How many years does it take to finally say enough!  To say, I will not let you take advantage! To say, I don't want this anymore!

It takes as many as it will for your heart and mind to agree.  Sad but true.

It always leads me back to my cousin and our trip several years ago to Rhode Island.  Where she explained the Point of no Return and how I mastered that approach.  To take and take until something inside shuts down, I walk away and that is that.  Sometimes when I can't either make a decision or my heart is to wrapped up to allow me to make a decision, this is the only route I know.  Most times, it just happens and it is always unplanned.  In the back of my mind I am preparing myself on how to tell the someone or someones - ENOUGH!, yet I don't and something inside just......stops.....

It was interesting to see something similar in this book. -  'In fact, once we've come that far, I'm not even sure there's any turning back----and that's also a good thing.' Biting Back by Claudia Cunningham

I have since reading this book, slayed some vampires, pushed some back, drawn lines and boundaries for others.  Yet...there are 3 that remain.  I can't decide and at least in one case the inevitable holds true, that vampire will need serious slaying.  Thus far, I regain my energy.  And.....you CAN regain your energy.

Thus far, I see clearer, it is happiness, sadness, preparing and confusion, but... nonetheless clearer.

I find myself in situations that are either the same or worse, but I see them as the situations that they are and arm myself.  Now that...is...progress.
