Somewhere Over the Rainbow

June 27th 2006 2 minutes to read

I’ve been in a bad depression lately, not sure how to get myself out of it.

It’s been raining off an on the last few days, actually, it’s raining a bit right now.

This weekend we (my son and myself) went strawberry and cherry picking, and then I went with my sister to the Pride Parade, then took my son to the Strawberry Festival so it was a busy weekend. Also, for the 2nd year in a row, we ended up on the news at the Parade. I don’t even know how it happens really.

I still need to do laundry.

I feel so out of touch from my spirituality lately and I don’t know how to fix it. ETA Thanks to Sam’s comment, I also realise that a large part of this is my disconnection from nature. I wake up, go to work where I sit ALL day (usually alone) in the office, then go home and usually sit at home too because it’s hard to go to the parks because they are PACKED with baseball games, soccer games, and some sport parents are crazy… really crazy. Daniel doesn’t really like to go to the forest preserve or going to visit the gardens and such (although usually, that costs some sort of money even if just for expensive parking), I can’t container garden (ity bity porch 100% covered in shade), so I can’t figure out how to work around this.

I really can’t function much anymore, everything is getting to me.

Here are some photos from the weekend.

I only got four hours of broken-up sleep last night. I’ve never been good at napping. I’m just left in this exhausted awake state of being.


Happy/Blessed Beltane, everyone!

Playing Catch-Up

I am pretty sure the last two weeks are catching up because I am beyond exhausted today. Trying to get caught up with the online world.

I Redesigned, Again

I redesigned OSN. It looks best at higher screen resolutions. That’s where you get all of the fancy effects. It’s fine on mobile but absolutely shines on a computer. Hopefully, everything works across the board. I tried to make the homepage an actual one, harkening back to the olden days of blogging.

{hugs} maybe next time you’re at the farmer’s market you could pick up a small bouquet of flowers? :)

I hope things look up for you soon. I know the feeling of being out of touch with your spirituality, I’ve felt that way off and on for the past few months, hopefully things will get brighter.

Your photos turned out beautifully, I am so jealous. I took a few dozen of some roses outside of Youngstown and only a handful turned out halfway decent.
