IF : Island Escape


Okay, I could use an escape right about now. How about you? The planets are going crazy out there causing all sorts of opposition and tension. Good times! With plans of moving to Rhode Island and other things on my plate, I'm about burned out to the max and need a lot of R&R and self-care. We're still in limbo as to what we're going to do. I may just batten down the hatches for winter and ride this personal storm out. This island is looking like just the place I need to be right now.

For all of you affected by hurricane Ike, my thoughts are with you and your loved ones for a safe outcome.

Please remember to help those who need it most, and remember our four-legged victims as well.

~peace and love~

  6. Hope your personal plans come together soon. I know how hard it is to be in limbo as to where your life is going to end up next. The next chapter should be something you are looking forward to. :)

  10. oh.. i didnt know you were thinking of moving out of the area. :( i may have to move too; but just from the apartment - not to the other coast. My move seems overwhelming; I can't imagine how overwhelming a move to the other coast might be!

  12. Last week I went to the dentist, and above my chair on the wall, he has this saying:[it always makes me less stressed, less anxious and I nearly always have to laugh, I hope it will help for you too]:

    "There are only two things to worry about, either you are healthy or you are sick. If you are healthy, then there is nothing to worry about. But if you are sick there are only two things to worry about, either you will get well or you will die. If you get well, then there is nothing to worry about. But if you die there are only two things to worry about, either you will go to heaven or to hell. If you go to heaven, then there is nothing to worry about. And if you go to hell, you'll be so darn busy shaking hands with your friends you won't have time to worry!"

    :D
    Hang in there, my dear!!

  23. Beautiful!!! Love the contrasting moods between shores - from flowery vibrant colors to misty cool woodsy- both have their own kind of beauty.
    Hope you get deserved R&R- and the weight of decisions is lightened. Decisions- uggggg-- same here.
    Peace.

  25. It's as if the beautiful flowers are showing you the way to the perfect retreat for your weary soul. This is such a lovely piece. I hope things resolve themselves for you soon. I think the toughest part, emotionally, is being in limbo.
