Mt. Olympus, Weaving, and Lightning Bolts

Where to start?

Is life and thought process just one tangled ball of string? Gnarled and ratty, with me trying to make some sense as I weave my thoughts in and out of the mess I've made with the thread life gave me.

Yet, that's such a defeatist attitude and makes me seem some sort of accepting whiner. When in reality it more as if I got this thread of life handed to me and through my own decisions and choices I've made the weaving of my life tangled in some spots with passionate reds, glowing yellows that burst in the tapestry of my choosing.

Could I honestly look back and not see the beauty of those colors? Sure...there are the threads of gray days and smokey blue ones that seem to contrast so starkly against the warmth and vibrancy of the red and yellow of passion. How could you truly appreciate the beauty of a flower if there were no weeds to compare to? It is the same with needs sorrow to hold its hand at times so that joy has some sort of depth to it, rather than being a manic, careless, shallow thing.

For sure, it is more comfortable to only write of the beauty in life, the joy in life...but humanity persists in hanging around.

Why couldn't I just be a goddess sitting on Mt. Olympus ready to throw my lighting bolt around? Oh yes...that was Zeus' job, right?

But Zeus thinks I'm cute.

Watch out now, ya hear...I'm a little testy lately.

Btw...I'm using cashmere thread in the tapestry of my life so that I can at least have that luxiorously soft and warm feeling that it imparts. Give me a tangled mess, but let it be cozy and warm.

I want to be a goddess, too...but I'll bet a goddess might get bored and would want to get right down in all that ball of string and bat it around like a cat. Cashmere..the cat would like cuddling in it

What webs we weave... even when were not necessarily trying to decieve... Ok... so when I was reading your third paragraph my mind instantly reverted to my Uncles ranch on the Brazos river here in Texas. (I am so ADD) Anyway.... Over the centuries the river has flooded out of its banks (a catastrophy in it's time).. eroding the land around it.... sweeping away whatever lied in its way.... Today it's one of my favorite places on earth.... for these floods carved and scuplted a beautiful bottom land. We're no different than the earth we live on.... and sometimes turmoil and set backs can eventually make us better..

btw..... I've missed you!

Like you said, it's the tangling complexities that weave the beautiful tapestry. Cashmere is wonderful, but even scratchy woollens can be fun if you wear them well.


On Trav's post Tag! You Are It! , he is making us do the following:


The first player of this game starts with and shares "6 weird/things/habits/oddities about yourself" and people who get tagged need to write a blog sharing THEIR 6 weird habits/things/oddities.

At the end you need to choose the 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their latest blog post and tell them to read yours.

And you are one of my peepz.

So you gotta do it…

Hi Mags darlin...Zeus likes you too. You get right on up that mountain.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh...Gem...what a beautiful image. I know a spot in California that has sandstone, somewhat like you describe - Agua Dulce Canyon; the winds and perhaps floods at one time or another have made swirling sculptures that entice the eye to wander over the never-ending curves.

I hope that I will always learn from these life experiences and come out better for it.

Thank you for missing me.

Spinner...yes scratchy woolens can be rather stimulating.

I'll get to the weird stuff soon enough...I promise.
