Peace & Quiet

Just got back from a beautiful Memorial Weekend retreat in the mountains up north! Aah, what silence... how deep! A supreme Transcendental Meditation (TM) course, a sublime experience!

Jai Guru Dev.

Celebrating Memorial Day Weekend

... in silence... in the mountains... to be one with Nature...

See you when I get back. Have a safe one.

Post Script

This quote is not my usual soft, sweet, delicate quotes which I normally prefer. It's more like a jolt. Not one of life's gentle reminders, sort of, and it can surely wake you up! Sometimes we need that. 

I do!

"Quote of the Day"

Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing, it was here first. - Mark Twain

Golf is Calling Me...

You know when you have all the signs to your dreams, desires, or what have you?? My desire to learn and play the sport has never been so profound that all hints are literally falling onto my lap these days! I see all signs on billboards, ads, golf jokes on email, people on buses, in their cars, or wherever with their golf clubs, you name it, everyday, every hour, every minute, between blinks! Just this morning, I heard a a group of people on the street cheering, celebrating loudly whatever they're celebrating and I suddenly remembered The "Bay to Breakers" happening right now so I turned on the tv to check it out and the first channel that came out was a live coverage of a golf event somewhere. I changed channels and it was a golf commercial and changed again and it was sports channel featuring golf - 3 in a row!!!

I'm really ready to learn the sport now. Yes, to learn! I need a buddy to do it with me to motivate me. Even a mini golf course as starters! Anyone interested?

Two Women Chatting...

One said, "If I can wear 4 and a half inch stiletto when I turn 60, I'm in damn good shape."
The other responded, "If I can wear 2 and a half inch heels when I turn 40, I'm in damn good sh..!"

I can't believe I heard this... Really cracked me up!

Another Gorgeous Day!

I know. This is 2, even 3 in a row! But as I said, you can count the days in SF as splendid as these so it's worth blogging about! In my old old age, 400 years from now, when I look back to my blog, I can say, "Aah, that was May of 2011 when we had 3 straight warm, sunny, drop-dead gorgeous days in San Francisco!"

Gorgeous Day!

It's so rare for San Francisco to get this splendidly warm! Welcome, Sun!

Beautiful Day

A walk along the trail
A visit to Rainbow's grave
Pastries from Boulangerie
Indian cuisine for dinner
Grande mocha from Starbuck's - decaf
And home sweet home
A day off together
What could be better?

Beautiful Dream...

Lola Ceria was giving me a small box of Vicks Vapor Rub for my allergies. And even though I had one already, I accepted hers 'cause there was so much love and caring in her giving. When I opened the box, there was no Vicks; instead, there was a round piece of mamon (sponge cake) nicely wrapped in plastic...

What she gave me were really symbolic of her love for me. There was so much warmth from her. My dream was so real it reminded me of Bambi's dream about Mama around her birthday, giving him a loving hug, "feeling warmth and love from her, so strong, so pure, so beautiful, nothing else mattered!"

It's the same emotions I felt with Lola.

Thank you, Lola, for the 'visit'. I love you and I miss you.

See What Multi-Tasking Does?

Paying my bills on-line, at the same time, looking for my i-pod to listen to Bill Evans' "Waltz for Debby", while cleaning and straightening up the hallway on the way to the studio, then Norman asking what I was going to listen to - without thinking, I answered, "Bills for Evan".

I will definitely write a song with that title.

What Is The Whole World Coming To??

All the recent events in the world have created global effects, that is, on an extremely grand scale - from good to wicked! Unbelievable! Is this Nature's balancing act to cleanse the world, from Japan's catastrophic earthquake and tsunami to eliminating Osama Bin Laden from the face of the earth, at the same time, blessing the world with Pope John Paul II's Beatification and the Royal Wedding??

What is happening everywhere??
