Ramblings of Silver Blue

Inside my world, inside my head.

Ramblings of Silver Blue has been relatively Ramble-lite as I have been re-centering myself, deciding what I want out of life, and where I want to go next. So much stuff behind the scenes… but they’re best kept in an offline journal. I may invite you in, but that doesn’t mean I see each and […]

We’re having a summer heatwave…. and no, I’m not singing an old showtune. You know it’s going to be a scortcher when it’s 82 degrees before sunrise. yesterday, on the way home, Saffyre told me it was 102. All the way home. Heat. Oppressive. The Wii? Oh yeah. The Wii. More boxing. Some tennis. Lots […]

Do We Wii? Mais, Oui!

After becoming addicted to the Nintendo Wii at my grandmother’s house (she loves bowling) on my trip to Ohio, and looking (no, SEARCHING) for one at regular retail (I’m sorry, but paying more than twice the price on ebay doesn’t interest me), I finally located one last evening. The good thing is that for the […]

With my morning cawfee…™

After my period of intense self-examination yesterday, along with my blogging of the same, I went and had some wonderful Chinese food, then came home and tried to pick up the pieces and put in something worthwhile. Nothing came to mind. Oh sure, I could have just rambled along, as I usually do, but I […]

I don’t believe you know me Although you know my name I don’t believe the faults I have Are only mine to blame Happy Sunday people. Countdown to the end (for now) of my “brush” with organized religion. Next Sunday’s it. There’s a backstory to it, but I really don’t feel like mucking up what […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

I started a Detox program today (a system called Detox7) and it really seems to be working. They tell you it’s not a laxative, and while that may be true, something’s happening. Of course, it could all be psychosomatic, but… I am of the belief that if you think it’s helping (and as long as […]

Howdy y’all. The weekend is here, my coffee is hot, fresh, and delicious. Some shoutouts (in alphabetical order) this morning: Angel With A Camera: You are missed, terribly. The way you could always make me smile is something that can’t be replaced. Say hello to Ice Queen’s Lady In Waiting for me, please. Anita: Keep […]

It’s amazing what sleeping in your own bed, in your own comfort zone can do. I awoke this morning for the first time in a week without back pain. Of course, that also could be the result of my releasing stress instead of allowing it to build up. While yesterday was my Monday, today is […]

After hours with Silver Blue™

G’evening. I’m back. Unwinding, getting ready to have my final meal of the day, thinking back on the challenges that taking a vacation, no matter how short, can bring. Having the hard drive blow up really put a spanner in my works today…though…I would like to think that I made the best of the situation. […]

Much to say, no time to type

I was glad to get back to work today, as I do really like my job. What I didn’t like, hadn’t counted on, and really didn’t need to have happen was that my hard drive decided it no longer wanted to play with me. So, here I was, trying to finish three projects, sans PC. […]

This is strange yet somewhat comforting to be blogging in the morning. To be “re-wried” (as it were). I head back to the office this morning, so that’s another layer of returning comfort I’ll be experiencing. More later. Mind is still a bit blank. 🙂

Return. I. Think. I. (Maybe.)

Well. This has been a journey that was full of surprises, tears, hurt feelings, and the like. Sounds like any visit to family, doesn’t it? I learned that Nintendo’s Wii has a bowling game that will give you a full body workout if you let it. (Yes, my grandmother has a Wii.) I discovered that […]

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 […]

Just joking, of course.

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.

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. […]

The door is not closed.

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.

24 Jul

I’m on the outside, looking in.

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 […]

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 […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

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 […]

Piercing The Veil of Illusion

I’ve gone through numerous different potential names for the follow up to Through The Eyes of Silver Blue, including The Heart And Soul of Silver Blue If Music Downloading is Theft; Photography is Kidnapping And all this time, I thought… (which also is the name of another fiction book I’m working on with “Jonathan Gibson” […]

After Hours with Silver Blue™

Gather round, boys and girls. Silver Blue’s going on a trip. Perhaps the best thing for everyone. It appears that in the past few days that I have had quite a catalyst-like effect on a great deal of people and events. I’ve even managed to make a few important decisions on my own. I’ve been […]

Ack! What is that glowing orb in the sky doing peering through my window like some sneaky pepping tom, disturbing my slumber and raising the temperature of my abode? Oh wait, it’s cooler OUTSIDE than it is INSIDE (72 versus 76). I’m moving slowly this morning, but that’s good. At least I know I’ll get […]

The Summer of the Food Movie

Ratatouille and No Reservations (the latter of which is having a sneak-preview this evening in US theatres). Has anyone seen either? If so, your take?

With my morning cawfee, part deux.

Ok, back, new cup. Made it to bed around 12:30 last night, and was up by 6:45. Most of the time, though, I was simply laying there, in the darkness, listening to the white noise of the fan as it blew the room around. Sandra Lee just went off; she REALLY needs to learn a […]

Morning comes early around the Shenandoah Forester. Tink’s still dozing, but that’s because she’s dreaming. Today’s a big day for her. Sorry, I can’t say more than that. If she wants to invite you into that part of her world, she’ll give you the details. With the sun starting to burst through my windows, and […]
