home being where the heart is

my folks having a moment at Jughandle, just up the road from the house
i feel so lucky lately * i may be missing one or 2 of my heart's desires, but what i do have is no less precious * i spent the holidays in my birth home, Caspar with my folks * it was the first trip i took with my new truck (3 days after i came home with it) * i took the coast road, out to Newport on to 101 which is a wonderful road to drive all the way till the last turn at Leggett on to the windiest road through the redwoods suddenly to the coast again, & home *
mellow was my theme this holiday season & i really enjoyed it that way * i feel replenished & happy to get back to work * i've been glued to my screen since i got home, giving my website a serious make-over * i got rid of some old pages, put up a new one (Caspar) along with a couple slide shows of the photographs i took around the homestead * i always take what i think is a ton of pictures & still end up wishing i'd taken more *

it's good to feel my roots, to have a home to steady myself with when my current home is a little less certain * it's all about the simple pleasures * i can't stop playing with my pictures & my site, working so much Sunshine's getting very bored with me * which is a good habit to get back into after the holidaze anyway * i get a giggle when my newest crush Billy Boyd as the yummy little Pippin pops up every time i clear my desktop (what a great set of crushes in that movie, most available in all sorts of lovely forms at lordoftherings.net) * Sunshine & i went to see it yesterday, my second time * i can't get enough, such an obsessive little crush-junkie... love the story, love the characters & love how they come through in the (gorgeous!) actors... love to have something to obsess over * sigh... simple pleasures, see? & hope for the future *

making lists: about this page

the stunning movie The Pillow Book is the inspiration for this ever-evolving page of lists * there are lots of links mixed in on my lists -- if i could find a good link on any item, i included it * some links go straight to Amazon.com or the IMDb but watch that bottom status bar because there are some other great links hidden in there * if you're interested in a little history, follow the story behind this page on the one that came before it, otherwise, read on for more rambling words and lists of beloved things -- is that an oxymoron?
Sienna Moonfire Potts: current obsessions from the webster of Sienna Moonfire Designs
my horrorscope today
(for the week of 1 January 2004):
I saw my Aries friend Alexis yesterday. "You're even more festive than the last time I saw you," I told her. She had on red silk pants, a burgundy cashmere sweater, silver scarf, black snakeskin boots, and beaded black tunic. I noticed several new piercings and a Hindu-style red dot on her forehead just above her eyes. She also happened to be carrying her snake, which was wrapped around her arm. "The older I get, the freer I am to hide nothing about how I really feel," she replied. "It's not even rebellion any more -- it's generosity. I have this sense that the world needs me to express my most extravagant self." I nominate Alexis to be your patron saint in 2004, Aries.

angel cards i just drew:
strength    humour    freedom

how am i doing?
i love it! it is generous to express your truth with creativity... i've been focusing my energies on my site for the last several days & it certainly does contain a lot of my truths... i honestly don't think about what it's like to come upon my site from another person's head * it would scare me if i did! then again, it is nice to be known...

something good happened the other day:
my map of Oregon came so now i really have to redecorate my walls * the other treasure is the collection of old family pictures i brought up from Caspar * when i got here i just threw stuff on whatever nails were up already so it will be fun to spend the time on setting up my gallery, the history & wishes of my life all over the walls of my nest *

& i cooked:
pasta with hot italian sausages *

animal friends:
there's a new baby here at the farm: Star, an itty bitty premie Nubian goat * she came along in the worst of the snow storm here (which was a rainy windstorm in Caspar for me) & Sunshine wasn't sure she would make it but now she seems to be doing well *

Sunshine feeds baby Star from a bottle
Nubian baby Star stands on her own
what i am reading now:
sayings on my mind:
home sweet home *
fake it till you make it *
man *
ain't nothin' like the real thing baby *
just because something is possible
doesn't mean you get to have it *
it's all connected *
all things in moderation *
embrace the dark side *
use it or lose it *
love it or leave it *
the answer's usually both *
nobody's just anybody *
regrettin' shit is a waste of time *
i'd rather regret som'm i did than som'm i didn't *
one door never closes without another one opening *
there are no innocents *
life is bittersweet *
damn, we're in a tight spot *
