Your Moment of Zen

“A life lived in fear is a life half lived.”

14 Nov 07

I woke up this morning

and the following question was on my lips:

“What wonderful things does today hold in store for me?”

I have many things to be thankful for; many more to be thankful for in the coming months and years. What purpose does it serve to dwell on the things that hold me back?

Stealing a page from Tink…

I present the weekend wrap-up.

Chicken Saltimbocca is awesome, and, as I found out, both easy and relatively inexpenisve to make. Finally, a way to appreciate proscuitto without breadsticks or melon!

Love is a wonderful thing. If you’re not in it, change that. ASAP.

A few of you have written to say that you find my blog bland or boring. Life’s about change, isn’t it? I don’t get riled up over things anymore. Actually, what you see here is closer to the real me than the old blog ever was. The things that people will do to attempt to attract readers…I am happy to finally be free of that.

Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio makes a great wine to pair with the afforementioned saltimobocca.

Indian cuisine is good, regardless of if it’s vegetarian or with tandori chicken.

Carrots and leeks make an awesome soup.

There’s no better feeling than fresh, fluffy sheets to fall asleep on.

I’m beginning to post things on ebay again, downsizing, in prepartion for my move, and the next chapter of my life. What to see what I have put up? Bookmark this. I’m going to attempt to put up at least two items a day (more on the weekends, obviously). If you see something you like, please bid on it. All proceeds are going to my moving fund.

Keep CA in your thoughts this week. Keep Tink in your thoughts for next week. See everyone soon!

Music of the Morning…

…to my CA…. 😀

Through the fire
To the limit, to the wall
For a chance to be with you
I’d gladly risk it all
Through the fire
Through whatever, come what may
For a chance at loving you
I’d take it all the way
Right down to the wire
Even through the fire…

Your Moment Of Zen

“Be who you are and say what you feel…
Because those that matter… don’t mind…
And those that mind… don’t matter.”

Music of the Night

The more I listen to this new album, the more I enjoy “Dark Road”, “Coloured Bedspread”, “Love Is Blind”, “Ghosts In My Machine”, “Sing”, and…

“Smithereens”
Annie Lennox
From “Songs of Mass Destruction”

I saw your picture
It made me sorry
For all the things
I never said
It seems that you
Have cause to worry
It seems that you
Don’t wish me well

Behind the victim
Behind the trouble
Are all the things
You’ve not expressed
I see you standing behind your mother
I see you hiding behind her dress

So don’t make me sad
I couldn’t stand to watch you fall
’cause everybody has a tender heart
Remember this
I didn’t mean to break it down to smithereens

I heard you crying
I learned the story
I saw the shadows behind the past
They fall behind you
And creep up slowly
We’re only human
Behind the mask

So don’t take me down
I couldn’t stand to watch you fall
’cause everybody has a broken heart
Remember this
I couldn’t stand to break it down to smithereens

And you say
Everybody is an island of their own
And you say
Everybody has a tender heart
Remember this
I couldn’t stand to break it down to smithereens

I didn’t mean to break it down
I didn’t mean to smithereens
Everybody is an island to themselves
Don’t you know
Everybody is an island to themselves

Your moment of Zen

All conditioned things are impermanent. Work out your own salvation with diligence….The Buddha’s last words.

Music of the Morning

For my Canandian Angel

Time and Tide
Performed by Basia

It’s hard for me to stop my heart
love never knows
when the time is right
I don’t want to hurt
anybody but
can’t help loving you

I never felt like this before
I know this is special
worth waiting for
let life take take its course
that’s the only thing
for us to do

We’ve got time, oh baby,
there’s no rush
gonna be a better
day for us
hang on
and I will
wait for you
our love will always stay as good as new

Time and tide
nothing and no one
can stop us now
for better for worse
this time I’m sure
it’s gonna last

How can I stop my heart?
Love never knows
when the time is right
don’t want to hurt
anybody
don’t want to make them cry
don’t want to make them cry

We’ve got time, oh baby
there’s no rush
gonna be a better
day for us
hang on
and I will wait for you
Our love will always stay as good as…
new

It’s a matter of time
only a matter of…
Time and tide
nothing and no one
can stop us now
for better for worse
this time I’m sure
it’s gonna last
gonna last forever

We’ve got time, oh baby
there’s no rush
gonna be a better
day for us
hang on
and I will wait for you….

Musical Interlude

Another Rainbow
T. Thörnholm / M. Clauss / D. Attlerud
Performed by Magnus Carlsson

Every mind is an open book
Every life is a way to look
Always cling to your strong belief
And the world’s gonna make you see

Another rainbow
Brings you to the stars
Look out your window
Life is gonna take you far
Another rainbow
Tells you who you are
Outside your window
Every colour’s who you are

Every story inside your heart
Brings a dream that’ll take you far
You´re the child in the fairytale
Never ever afraid to fail

Another rainbow …

You’re the only one
Of your kind
Always hold
that in mind

Another rainbow …

Another rainbow
Tells you who you are
Outside your window
Every colour’s who you are
