quote:

I saw a winding path ahead




It was said by oh so many voices
a person must have their own choices
and yet it is so very clear
we hold our own hearts very dear

~*~

So in that moral atmosphere I begin a chain of events that may lead us one unto the other and hold all things so near and dear; Should one and all join in, no barriers, no fences, just clean air to clear our thoughts...

it may become a garden, or a sky; it may be written deep, or high; but perhaps you and you might join to witness a gathering of sound and coin your thoughts here for some to view, wouldn't it be grand of you; but if you only choose to read...well God wish you all good speed...

I hope we gather as one kind with ever effervescent waves of mind, and sing to heavens that they hear, and wave our hearts out in the clear; then hold some hands when they need held, and listen to the peals of bells...

when candles lit and stars sing sky, I wish you all the best, and I?  I shall sit just there, and wave at you...

for that is what I know to do.

A new journal is now open.

~*~

Just like me to start out by screwing up, huh?

Isn't home wonderful?  You can fix it if you wish...but of course, there's always chance for reposts, and reposits, somewhere in here...

The countdown has begun.  Our last "planning meeting" before we hold our legal professional state seminar beginning Friday.  Our chapter has held them before, but because of retirement, passings, and priorities, our membership number is low.  Our local chapter, because of its' geograhic point in our state, usually get the highest numbers.  In a few hours I will know whether or not we will be in the black with what little "profit" we will see.  As a "non-profit" organization, our main gifts at the end of each fiscal year is to have local chapters and the state organization to be able to give scholarships to students - we use to focus on the legal field, but opened it up to any student willing to take on the paperwork.  I know the funds aren't much - they can pocket as much as $750 if they gather both local and state funds...but still, nothing to sneeze at...

So Friday we begin registrations and social time; Saturday is packed with speakers and continued legal education; then Saturday night we hike those who want to go to a local winery for dinner and music by a talented, local artist; and then Sunday is board meeting.  When you're going - it's all fun...when you're hosting...it's more like chaotic fun!

So starts the week!

Hello all... I've found my way home again. I checked, and it does appear that the last time I was here was quite some time ago... I lost my internet. I still don't exactly have it back, but I'm not living at home now, so that's how I'm here.

I'm in this house right now just hanging out all by myself because everyone is out... it's amazing how things have turned out. I've been here almost exactly a week now. I love it. I haven't been this happy... well... ever. When the last journal started, I was a very happy child. It all started June 28th... I was just too excited to say anything. I was afraid that if I said something everything would fall apart... my happiness used to be far more fragile.

I've just decided that I make no sense when I'm happy. Sorry. What I'm trying to say is that I'm living with my girlfriend and I'm here alone now because her parents are at work and she's in school, so I'm here to visit.

No, that's not what I meant. Let me try again.

I'm in love! HAHA!

*bounce bounce*

It makes me very happy.

Anyway, I've missed you all, and I'll try and not disappear again.

Geez Kari...I have not a clue as to what you're talking about.

But that's not news, with me is it?

Believe it or not, I'm STILL cracking tile.

But this time, it's for my window seat!

How sweet is that?

I wanted to thank you properly for starting this thread--I tried to tell folks the other was for everybody too, but nobody believed me. laughing

And that's not news with me either.

But an update on the house.

It's not finished.

And we're living in it.

So everybody knows what THAT means.

It will NEVER be finished.

So now I am campaigning to sell both houses and buy a new one. Already built. And inspected. shaking my head here...

I feel like Cinderella.

Without the fairy godmother.

But hey? I've got my own room, with doors too!

I can even lock them if I move the file cabinet in front of 'em!



"laughing and crying, yanno it's the same release" -- Joni Mitchell

and Ki?

Warmest hugs my little crazed buddy--tell me, when you disappear, where do you go?

I've been having this urge of late...

Consider this a hit and run...

But now that I have access at home maybe I'll return to the scene of the crime!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Hmmmm...what is Sunshine talking about.  Well...

I belong to Salina Legal Professionals, which is a chapter's leg off of the State level of Kansas Legal Professionals.  [Didn't everyone know that? ]  We hold three meetings a year, and each chapter is on the "round robin" tour...and I think the next one is in Emporia...I'd have to go look.

Anyway, all seminars are primarily for Continued Legal Education.  But don't think for a moment that we don't have fun, too!  For those who can get to their location on Friday night, they are feted wonderfully [we've even had a few Mardi Gras nights in our past...] and then, hangovers and all [for those who imbibed] we hit the classroom hard on Saturday for as many as six educational speakers at times.  We will have five speakers on various subjects for our Saturday morning.  We arrange for breaks, lunches, etc.  We have exhibitors come so the ladies who believe they are really supposed to be out shopping...can!

Sometimes on Saturday nights, we just go wherever we wish.  But some chapters arrange for a special evening in Fall and Spring, and we've arranged for an Italian buffet at the Smoky Hill Winery, featuring Ann Zimmerman for our entertainment, a  local mediator and songstress who has a wonderful voice and a great following.  I can think of many poets here who would truly enjoy her songs and lyrics!

Sunday is Board Meeting morning...again, the host chapter provides the means for breakfast and such...

Now...whatever "profit" comes after all expenses are paid out are split, 60/40 to KLPI and hosting chapter; 50/50 at Annual Meeting [more expense because it's a bigger deal...] and everyone crashes Sunday evening after a super weekend.

The last time Salina hosted an event, it was Annual meeting, I was up as President for State, and it was truly a long, extremely happy, joyful weekend, as I had friends and family from all over the USA drive and/or fly in for the event.  I will never forget that time...nor my state organization family and blood family/friends for helping me get to that status.  

No one does anything alone.

And it was an arena of experience that I never for a minute thought I would achieve, until I saw it, and thought..."I think I can do that."

A mind is a wonderful thing...

And Serenity? This was a trick comment on your part to get me to add to the journal, right?

So Karilea, basically you are saying that you don't have enough to do around here so you seek fulfillment elsewhere? You are just amazing.

All of my spare time is consumed by involvement at church. But that probably isn't surprising since I have a degree in theology. Which qualifies me to be genuinely in awe of Denise.

By the way, the Serene one is very clever. It's nice to know she still has her touch. And that smooch was mine, right?

I have to come back to say what I was unable to deliver in an email:
"Yanno inno, Dear, dear friend,
And the knowing is of such great value to me. Bless you for your faithfulness. Always I will treasure your friendship.


If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Damn Kari...

no offense meant and I hope none taken, but if I were you? I'd be TIRED.

Hell, I'm just me, and I'm TIRED.

I'm gonna go snuggle up with a Larry and a Skyfire, and see if I can find holes in the lids that keep the dreams in...or out?

This, our start
where we may dwell
in bright sunlight,
or memories' well,

to hear the common
sense of man,
to learn from all
to do what we can...

This, a refuge
for one, and all...
where we write our thoughts
at the Butterflies' Ball...

Autumn winds whisper
Soft, gentle promises of new life
Of beginnings not so long ago
Never contemplated

Autumn brings with her
Reason to slow down
Time to appreciate the cycle of things
Time to see the beauty of newly colored horizons  

Autumn grows through to winter
Giving warmth like no spring nor summer
I will hold her in my arms
Cradling the tiny piece of me and mine

Thankful for a Daughter and the Autumn she brings


Just thought I would let everyone know that my daughter is having a girl and her name will be Autumn.

When is the baby's due date, Susan?  My littlest ones are scattered throughout the year...and they are such joys to hold and behold...

And Autumn is a soft, serene name...

Did someone need some hummingbirds?
