Morning everyone. Before I slide out the door, into a giant tube and rocket off into the great heartland of America, I wanted to take a moment and leave you with some thoughts. I don’t care what ANYONE says. Believe in yourself. Seriously. There’s nothing than can improve the quality of your life more than […]

Silver Blue here (duh, right? Who’d you expect, Roxette Bunny™?) with series of questions: 1. If you meditate, do you use music, and if so, which artist/album do you recommend? 2. Do you have an preferred reading material when it comes to enlightenment? (I’m steering clear of the traditional Christian Theology at this point — […]
I wish violence on no one. The photo was just too cute to pass up, however. Know that I love each of you in my own way.
For the last time. You. Yes, you. You know who you are. Go away and leave us alone. Nobody wants you around.
I’m sitting here with what may be my last cup of Wawa coffee in the morning for a week. (Well, ok, I’ll have a cup tomorrow morning, but I probably won’t be brewing it, having purchased it on the way to the airport.) There is much going on behind the scenes here at the Ramblings. […]
I didn’t realize the number of people who actually would write and ask me not to shut up. The door’s not closed. Posting will be sporatic, at best, until I decide which direction Ramblings of Silver Blue 4.0 will go in.
Yes, boys and girls, we knew it was going to happen. The Ramblings has run its course. It served the purpose I needed it to, even though I didn’t know it. (Graphic by Brandon McFadden) Much as I’m reconstructing myself, maybe I’ll be back on the blogsphere at some point. For now, I have to […]
A classic from Sheena Easton, “I Wouldn’t Beg For Water.” I make friends, I make enemies, it doesn’t matter all that much to me I’m not the kind who deals behind the scenes I won’t sell my soul, I’d be nothing without some integrity Chorus: I wouldn’t beg for water, I wouldn’t beg for water […]
Words from Helen Steiner Rice that have gotten me through some storms in my life: “If I can endure for this minute whatever is happening to me No matter how heavy my heart is or how dark the moment might be… If I can but keep on believing what I know in my heart to […]
“Better Days” (circa 1976, Jane Olivor’s album “First Night”) Well another day has gone after all is said and done you are here as you were before. Cos it feels as if we’ve been through it all and back again now I know there’ll be something more…. No more tears… left to hide… we have […]
Not having faith in yourself, or other people not having faith in you? Discuss.
Remember there are answers that you may not have wanted to know. Words I spoke to my mother 20 years ago. Words I need to remember. Sometimes, I forget that not knowing might be the best thing. I’ve told you everything I possibly can, there’s nothing left inside of me. (Note: slightly altered) [audio:bt-gia.mp3]
Ever had one of those out of body experiences where you’re conscious (awake) and aware of your surroundings? I did today. Since all the stress of life seemed to want to take refuge between my shoulder blades, it was only a matter of time before I did some relaxation techniques I learned years ago in […]
A dear friend cornered me today, complimented me on my weight loss, wanted to know my secret, and then told me something about myself that I really hadn’t considered. Before each major, life changing event in my life, I’ve lost weight. Lots of it. Enough to make up an entire person. From when I went […]
We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or to other peoples’ models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open. – Shakti Gawain
Howdy everyone! It’s a wonderfully cool morning, at 65 degrees. The blackberry brandy (and associated meditation) put me out like a light. I slipped into a deep slumber. Dreams, however, were bizarre. If they truly are a window to my world (read as, my life), then there isn’t a question in the world that can […]
Ok, I hate being pumped for information. The last thing I am willing to do is share information about someone to someone else whom I don’t know at all. What have I gotten myself in the middle of? I wish you all a good night. Be kind to each other.
Good evening. It’s time for brandy (blackberry), meditation (after I blog), and for me to not get caught up in the webs that other people weave. There’s a lot to think about tonight, and I’m still in a good, serene mood. Coffeemate (I know, you LOVE seeing your name appear on the blog!), thanks for […]
Moonglow, whom many of you know as the purveyor of fine jokes you’ll often read here on the Ramblings sent me something I must share immediately (it’s in the comments section to Fortune Cookies, Part Deux). Her wisdom: Remember one thing…. Everyone dies, but not everyone LIVES! 🙂 ….. Y’all are just making me feel […]
Dear readers: I’ve been formulating this post for most of the day; parts of it were written pre-“Piercing the Veil” from this morning. As you will see, the potential book title actually came from the following events. I’ve added a new category to the blog, one that I feel is very important to me. After […]
Tink’s cookie said: “To find ourselves, we must first lose ourselves.” Where am I? Who am I? I think I’m on the road to enlightenment. 🙂
The photo that Food Network had online didn’t do even the tiniest bit of justice to this dish — so I decided to not include it.. I’m down with a migraine, so I won’t be cooking this today…but.. I can guarantee you it will be on the menu when I start cooking again in a […]
