Spring is here or soon will be. Of course down here in South Louisiana it’s been in the 60s and 70s for months. Today’s high is 85. Don’t envy me too much for summers here hit the high 90s and if the heat doesn’t kill you the humidity surely will.
I am past my hip replacement surgery and boy does it feel good to be on the other side of that one. I am one month out now and am walking with a cane. I can drive at six weeks and look forward to my regular gym workouts in two more months.
I feel a new beginning coming on, after what was the hardest two years of my life. But I digress and if you want to hear more about my harrowing journey you’ll have to read it on previous blog entries. I am leaving the past in the past.
Now, I am concentrating on healing, then a full-time job in Austin, the move there and my new life there. Yippee Ki-yay!!!! Can’t wait to taste Texas BBQ, especially beef ribs. It’s hard to find good beef ribs. I like pork too, but beef ribs are the best.
Yes, I still eat meat. I’ve been toying with becoming a vegetarian, but never could get myself to stay away from the occasional hamburger or BBQ.
In the recovery and time off, I’ve got to keep up on the world news. My heart goes out to all those suffering in the recent earthquakes and tsunami as well as those in the Middle East struggling to overthrow their fascist regimes.
We can’t deny that the earth and the world is changing. Chaos seems to rule the day on several parts of the globe. People say this is the end times. Yes, perhaps many things are going to end. I would be glad to say goodbye to the way the banks and corporate America rule this country. I would like to see humans pull together instead of fighting religious wars. I would like to see hatred of Jews and Muslims end. I would also like to see American and other countries be less dependent on oil and put funding into clean reliable energy. I don’t feel it’s nuclear power for reasons now obvious.
Change, yes things are going to change. I believe more earth and climate changes are ahead as well. I also see more non-democratic countries coming into consciousness and wanting their freedom. It’s like the whole earth is waking up and saying no more. No more materialistic thinking. No more religious persecution.No more poisoning the earth. No more restriction of freedom.
Perhaps end times are followed by a new beginning. In many cultures including the Mayan, there was either no prediction of what was to follow 2012 or it was total destruction. Perhaps it’s left up to us. Perhaps we either choose to love one another or continue to hate. I believe a new beginning must be based on love and freedom, not hatred and restriction by governments that have outgrown their usefulness.
We are on the verge of a new way of life here on earth and those clinging to the old ways of living are going to be left behind. Perhaps that’s the Apocalypse means. For me I am going to live each day to its fullest.
It hasn’t been reported so much on the news as of yet, but I can’t help but notice how we are pulling together more than ever before. Japan is getting aid from all over the globe and now several countries including the Arab world have united against Libya to rid it of it’s fascist leader. So some good has come out of some very bad situations or so I think.
Blessings to you for living during this amazing time on earth. Enjoy the beautiful full moon and Spring Equinox energies. Love to all!
