Off to Chi-Town

I'm off to Chi-town for a few days. Other than today, which is expected to be stormy, the weather should be pleasant.

Sorry I haven't written this week. Was under the weather a bit. But I did see a few minutes of Michael Jackson's funeral (it cost LA $1.4M) on CNN, read that Jim DeMint make an arse of himself by comparing the US to Germany shortly before WWII, politically that is, and believe that Sarah Palin's grandchild's father is probably right as to why Gov Palin is stepping down: the smell of money.

And yes, Elizabeth will be in public again in October, at a women's conference hosted by the First Lady of California.

My cat, Elmora has to be boarded due to her hyper-T problem. Please keep her in your thoughts.

Have a good weekend, BW readers.

She's gone

This is my about my Mother. BW readers, hope this becomes clear to you.

Elizabeth Edwards realized that her life of what she imagined as a young person was gone and to create anew.

My life has changed many times in recreating the past, and realizing, I have the strength to go on with a new one too. I had some bad/weird things happen to me in the past few weeks, but I feel the need to push forward.

I didn't talk to the sky last night. EE may or may not call it faith. I call it prayers instead in my thoughts. And I think I am about the journey, not about the faith to an afterlife. I am not critical though of EE's faith towards the afterlife, especially being raised that way.

Hall and Oates from the pop days of the 70's recorded, She's Gone.

I thought it was about a big breakup. In truth, I think that is the main topic. But I believe it was broader than just the lyrics presented.

When I had seen that my mother had passed, "She's Gone" was the song which passed through my thoughts immediately. It was supposed to be about a breakup btwn a woman and a man, or perhaps any couple, including GBLT, which it should be in real life . To me, the tune was about losing a loved woman in my life. Broadly speaking, it was my mother, not one who took a hold on me personally, but who loved me, and for eternity loved all of us, including me.

But I felt she was gone.I have to move on. And I will. I love my friends online and those by on FB too.
