"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

That was a snap judgment of mine on Michael Moore, sorry! It was more based on my dislike of all extremely obese people than anything concrete. But that's not a positive :evillaugh:

My positive is that I'm getting together with two old friends tonight, who are also going to be my roommates at UVA. We're getting a triple, and there many things to talk about and plans to be made!

It sounds like you had a great time, mel. I never knew there was so much partying going on in North Dakota either.

I'm glad you had such an inspirational weekend with your Shaman, TC. I'm curious to find out more about these shamans, if they make you feel that good.

I had a very laid back 4-day weekend with my boyfriend. We had a little cookout on Sunday and Monday and just hung out in the backyard and enjoyed nature.

Matt, I'm glad you're getting serious in your college preparations. I do hope you don't party harder then the good people of North Dokota. :evillaugh:

CoolBlonde, I'm still reflecting on what I want to share about the experience with my Shaman. This weekend almost went beyond the natural to the point where words are really hard to find. I'll try to share more in the near future.

Last night I was able to spend time working on an expanded pen for my ducks. The male was trying to help out by attacking everytime I turned my back. Its kind of exciting to be able to give them enough room to waddle around and do their thing, so I'll count it as a positive.

I just returned from one of the best therapy sessions I've had in a long time. We focused on setting free some pent up old emotions that I was hanging on to regarding my wife. I literally felt my body relax as I let go of these old resentments. For me it doesn't get much more positive than this.

My friends and I have been talking about bed lofts and box fans. It seems like a really cool idea to have a bed loft and then to have your computer and desk underneath the loft, plus it saves space. There are so many other things, I better get back to pondering it all over... :bricks:

I know this has been used before but the best I can say is I'm alive and stuff is moving forward more or less.

I'm alive too, and yes that's a positive. :evillaugh:

The real good news is that my family adopted a stray kitty cat that we had seen wandering the neighborhood streets for several weeks. It's a little tortoise shell with white socks, very very cute!

I started my morning with a bikeride over to Pullman (+/- 8 miles). The exercise was great and it allowed me to relieve some stress that has built up through the week. Even more impressive was along the bike route was one lone fox baby. It couldn't have been more than a few weeks old. It was playing in the weeds and seemed completely unaware of my presence. I just stopped and watch it play for several minutes. I guess it did something to relieve my since of playful spirit. A great way to start the weekend.

I was lying on the ground a few days ago, and just let my mind go and stared into the sky. For a few minutes I didn't have to worry about narcissism or anything related to it, and could just enjoy nature. I'll have to do stuff like this more often, since I spend such a lot of time thinking inside my head.
