Aquarius Moon

Happy Blue Moon Friday! Anytime there are two full Moons in a month, the second Full Moon is called a Blue Moon. Blue Moons aren't as rare as we are led to believe. They happen every 18 months.

This Full Moon is special to me. It is the Full Moon in Aquarius. Special and amazing events happen to me during this Full Moon. For all my Moon and sun sign Aquarius babies, this is our lucky Moon.



Then, as the broad moon rose on high,
The maidens stood the altar nigh;
And some in graceful measure
The well-loved spot danced round,
With lightsome footsteps treading
The soft and grassy ground
-Sappho

The energy of the Full Moon is for everyone to use. A Blue Moon is extra luminous, dazzling and beautiful. Aquarian energy is about freedom. Personal Freedom. Freedom for all of Humanity.

Think where in your life you feel most free? Where you feel more alive and yourself? Whatever you do, think or to feel like that, bring it to parts of your life where you feel stilfed, bored or burdened.Do one small action towards your personal freedom.

Which could look like saying no, saying yes, more exercise, cooking great food, less internet, reading more, telling people off, setting your boundaries, loosening up around people, dropping unwanted activities.

Be Free to be you!

Also before I forget, this is a great time to make wishes. This time spend your wishes on yourself. Wish big and happy.

As always, I wish all of you a freedom filled Full Moon weekend.

P.S. I have an intuition love letter I send out at least twice a month. If you are interested, click here to sign up.

Somewhere in Time music

As much as I love Somewhere in Time, it was many years later that I found out there were lyrics to go along with the theme song. I don't think I ever shared this video here. If you are a Somewhere in Time fan, you'll love this. If not, perhaps the song will be pleasing to hear. This version of the song is sung by Nonoy Zuniga. There are other versions you can find on Youtube. Enjoy.




Music and lyrics by John Barry

Somewhere in time
We met on timeless hills
And in the evening mist we kissed
And time stood still
Before the dawn, we found forever
Moments are timeless when I feel your caress

You'll always be inside of me
And I know when love is true
It's always with you

Somewhere in time
I came to realize
Love never goes

Love never goes
Once it has touched your heart
Just like the strength of wine that's left
As two lips part
A taste of love will linger after
I know the meaning of all that I see

You'll always be inside of me
And I know when love is true
It's always with you

Somewhere in time
I came to realize
Love never goes

Somewhere in time
We met on timeless hills
And in the evening mist we kissed
And time stood still
Before the dawn, we found forever
Moments are timeless when I feel your caress

You'll always be inside of me
And I know when love is true
It's always with you

Somewhere in time
I came to realize
Love never goes

Love never goes
Once it has touched your heart
Just like the strength of wine that's left
As two lips part
A taste of love will linger after
I know the meaning of all that I see

You'll always be inside of me
And I know when love is true
It's always with you

Somewhere in time
I came to realize
Love never goes

National Vanilla Ice Cream Day

Oh, Vanilla how do I love thee. I remember one of my friends mom telling me that it was boring that I love Vanilla ice cream. Boring!!?? It's a shame that even now saying something or someone is Vanilla means they are boribg.

How can this sweet simple delight be blah? Things don't have to be complex to be interesting.



I am here to remind you that today is National Vanilla Ice Cream Day.

Go out there and get a yummy scoop or two of Vanilla ice cream. Be proud to be a Vanilla ice cream lover.

If you are lactose intolerant, they do have Vanilla ice cream for you, too. Breyer's has a good one that my husband, Sean, eats.

Enjoy your sweet treat today and stay cool.

Pump up your Monday



I know, I know it's Monday. Depending on where Mondays find you: at a 9-5 job, sahm or sahd, coming in from the night shift, unemployed or laying out at the beach, you can still make Mondays great.

Yes. You can. Here are my top five ways to Pump up your Monday:


1) Go out to eat. Don't cook. Go out for dinner with family and friends tonight. Unwind and let someone else cook for a change.

2) Go to the movies. Wanting to see the latest movie and don't like weekend movie crowds. Monday nights at the movie is relaxed, fun and drama free.

3) Plan something fun. Go dancing, to an exhibit, a stroll at the local botanical gardens, a jazz club. Make Mondays your day to get out of the house and into life.

4) Make Mondays your yes day to yourself. Whatever any one asks you today, if it doesn't make you light up don't do it. Yes, even with work. Shift it to tomorrow or delegate it to someone else.

5) Make sure to spend time outside today or tonight. Sit in your local park, walk among your local wildflowers, take a book to read outside. Bask in the sunlight or moonlight to fill your soul.

Remember it is your life and your Monday. Don't let Monday go by without having fun and filling up your spirit. Have a great and Happy Monday.

Jayne Kennedy

Happy Friday, my fellow dreamers. Since Friday is the day dedicated to beauty and love. I like to share one of my favorite beautiful women who was one of my sheroes growing up.

Her name is Jayne Kennedy. She had a multifacted career as a model, actor and one of the first African American women sport casters on tv. Jayne to me epitomized glamour, beauty and poise. Jayne always carried herself with a quiet strength. She eventually decided in the 90's to focus on her second happy marriage to Bill Overton and raise their four girls. She still remains one of my favorites even today.

Eternity at Sunset



And still within a summer's night
A something so transporting bright
I clap my hands to see -
Emily Dickinson

One of my favorite time of summer is the sunset hours. That time that hangs suspended between day and night. The sky has a beautiful energy and I can feel for just a while I'm outside of time. I think to myself this is what eternity feels like. Time has no meaning. It is just me, the sky and my thoughts.

If your life gets hectic, take this lovely time to just be with yourself. You can read, write, dream, pray, plan. As day and night use this time to connect, so can you connect with your own spirit.

Romantic Vignette #13: Butterfly girl



Charlie could feel a warm feeling in her belly before they came. She loved her friends, at times she feel different from them. She knew it has to do with the butterflies. Then one day, she went to her local park. Charlie got turned around and the sky began to look dark. She got scared. Soon,the butterflies came. Pretty small ones in pink, white and yellow dancing around Charlie. As they fluttered around her, Charlie followed them back to the path she knew;and,was able to get home in time before the storm. Charlie finally accepted she is different and liked it. No other girl had butterflies as good friends.
