for the first time, today i was tired of the predominant winter colors- two- blue and white, punctuated by occasional black. i need color. flowers. growth. lilies. SPRING. no wonder some people get into exotic indoor plants like orchids and amaryllis- especially up here, especially in january/feb.
today 2 of my sisters and i went to the como conservatory- ferns, palms, 100% humidity..and a 2-toed tree sloth hanging out in a large faux-tree. what an amazing creature, such arms, such legs, such a funny face. which i'm sure is exactly what SHE was thinking about US...
week-end looks to be interesting. sunday, a group of women is/are getting together to plan a 'crone' ritual-one of the women 'won' the services of a unitarian minister for any kind of ritual/ceremony, (she entered a bid at a charity silent auction) and she thought she'd honor this time of her life with others. should be interesting. i don't know if i feel i'm right for the Voice of Wisdom, but i've certainly, (thanks to surgeons) gone past my "mother-goddess" state, so perhaps this is a time to celebrate the next 2/3 (i enjoy optimism, it's so new to me) of my life.
and there's always faure', whose music has been listened to all week as i proceed alphabetically (yeah, i know) through my CD collection.
life is good.
