FIFTH WEEK MONDAY: THE SPIRITS INSIDE THE GHOSTS THIS ALL-HALLOWED’S EVE


Having received beyond helpful pastoral advice this a.m. about sharpening my sensitivity to social cues in promote more satisfying group interactions–and:

Having successfully cheered up a good, younger friend who just waved her National Guard husband of two months off to Afghanistan–and:

Having received very encouraging replies to my comments on several writers’ blogs–and:

Having grown very comfortable with sitting and writing for 4+ hours straight–and:

Having successfully chased off the goblins from early childhood memories being written about (which is essential to both my plotline and some of the public venue causes I am currently passionate about supporting)–and:

Having remembered again this year what “Halloween” started as–and:

Having decided not to fret too much over an writing job proposal, as it is not really part of my vision at this time–and:

Having floated back into a state of peaceful acceptance of myself and my strengths and weaknesses–TA DA!–

I in delightedly shaking hands with my own spirit inside the loving spirits of those saints who have gone before me from my family tree!

Here’s a little thought blooming in a corner of my heart today:

RUSTLE PAST THE SHADOWS

TIPTOE INTO THE LIGHT

STAND TALL OVER THE ABYSS

KNEEL BESIDE THE HIGH PLACES

 

My favorite quote today:  The last words of Steve Jobs as he looked over and past the faces of his loved ones just before he lost consciousness the last time:

” OH, WOW! OH, WOW! OH, WOW!”

Now, THIS is the spirit inside the ghosts from my past that I want to carry over into tomorrow, All Saints’ Day!!

I will be celebrating the love of those saints from my family tree on November 1, 2011!
