And Then There Was Me

🌟The 123s of how I came to be 🌟

Shall I tell you a story? ~

The pendulum has swung from its previous extreme ~ from giving ~ to receiving ~ by being.

Posted 1 day ago

When I’m talking

I am giving;

When I’m listening

I am receiving…

And my world changes into something bigger.

My life is FULL of …

LOVE
GRATITUDE
PLAY
EXCITEMENT
HEALTH
PASSION
WONDER
CHANGES

Yes, my friends, it’s a wrap for the Wednesday #Full series.

The list that I started with
is not the one I’ve ended with.

It always starts with LOVE 💗, and defining it for myself ~
LOVE is acceptance;
Suffering is attachment.

What are seven qualities ~ feelings ~ emotions you choose to fill yourself with?

Ice is to Eskimos, as…

Relationships are to Punjabis.


The more important something is to us,

the more words we have for it ~


Just us Eskimos have many words to describe snow and ice, the Punjabi people of India have many words to describe relationships.


In English, AUNT and UNCLE describe our parent’s siblings, and their spouses; Punjabi, is more exacting ~


Thaa-ee-ah = Dad’s older brother(s)

Thaa-ee = Dad’s older brother’s wife


Cha-cha = Dad’s younger brother(s)

Cha-chee = Dad’s younger brother’s wife


Phu-phar = Dad’s sister’s husband

Phu-ua = Dad’s sister


Maa-sur = Mom’s sister’s husband

Maa-see = Mom’s sister


Maa-maa = Mom’s brother

Maa-mee = Mom’s brother’s wife


And when it comes to grandfathers and grandmothers …


Naa-naa and Naa-nee are our

Maternal grandparents


Daa-daa and Daa-dee are our

Paternal grandparents


Every relationship you see,

is relative to me ;-)

Wonderful, is what I am ~

I wonder often;
but I know for sure
that wonderful,
is what I am.

And you, my friend,
are you wonderful too?
What do you wonder?
I ask this of you.

My creativity is fuelled by the fires of passion;
And man, am I ever full of it ~

Full of passion;
Full of rage;
Full of piss and vinegar;
Just plain full of it.

…creativity that is ;-)

So full of this creative fire, that it now appears to be burning me from the inside out. I have developed a skin sensitivity to the fiery hot passion of our sun.

The fires 🔥 of passion
burn bright, but brief.
This mortal flesh
cannot contain,
nor sustain
it indefinitely.

Healthy boundaries ~
Healthy relationships ~
It all starts with me.

What new adventures head my way?
The EXCITEMENT that I feel, cannot be contained.

Sin-gal, and her trusty sidekick, Heure d’jour, rushed to pack the supplies they’d need to help this newly arrived, and desperate, case.


Sin-gal was herself, single, but having experienced more bad dates than your average SWF, she’d made it her personal mission to help make the world a better place by HELPING DATERS DATE BETTER - this was etched on the frosted glass door of her converted Queen Anne home. Single San Franciscans knew that help was on the other side.


Quickly, she tossed the package of tissues (Kleenex brand, ‘cuz someone always needs one), to Heure, her trusted friend of many years. Heure had always been there for her. Always been a shoulder to cry on. And now he was that shoulder for other single men and women.


Into the duffel bag went the tissues, and they were off to solve their first official case…


Thirty minutes into her coffee date with Matt, Jane had bent over to pick up her napkin, and that’s when she knew with absolute certainty, there would be no second date.


Seated at the table, Matt looked quite presentable. As a yacht engineer, he’d led quite an exciting and adventurous life. He’d get dropped off, by helicopter, onto the decks of these massive pleasure boats that were stuck in the middle of the ocean. He’d pull a MacGyver and patch them up as best he could, and then set sail for Fort Lauderdale, where he’d hand the keys back over to the owners, just in time for that season’s Key West Race.


Fascinating!! This is turning out to be a great first date with a great fun guy, is what Jane thought until she dropped her napkin and noticed a different kinda fungi.


She tried to focus as Matt continued to regale her with stories of high sea adventure. A flash of movement caught her eye. Sin-gal and Heure d’jour had arrived! They rushed over to Matt’s end of the table, and with the stealth of a Genin ninja, placed the anti-fungal ointment next to Matt’s elbow, and then disappeared.
