YESSSSSSSS.....I really am a Grandma, I have 4 Grown-up (Well, as much as children ever grow up..LOL) Children and 6 Growing Grandchildren, another Grandson expected in April...... My Grand daughter really did invite me here...Probably so I could give her gifts... wink Actually it is because:
I AM A KEWL GRANDMA... LOL..... I live in Chicago, (city girl) . I love Nature and enjoy Photography. I have begun practising Shamanism again and it feels GREAT! smile

David and I have parted ways.....which is always a painful process.
I am looking for a new job and starting a new chapter in my life....


Please go to the art forum and see some of my photography- I have a couple of Great Hawk Pics and some great Heron pics as well as a few others. Please leave comments and vote! Thanks!

Wolves are my Passionate Life Power Animal, Horses
Herons and Hawks are favorites as well

SING as if no one is listening
DANCE as if no one is watching
LOVE as if you have never been loved before

I would like to Share this wonderful Piece by:

Oriah Mountain Dreamer:

The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.

If you like this one, look up The Dance and some of her other works!

Been Hacked??? There are Gaians waiting to help!!!
