An end of an era!

Greetings! It's Thursday night, and I can't sleep, soooo here I am, bothering YOU! lol

What's on your mind, you ask? Well, funny you should ask. I am thinking about seasons- and change. This past week, a group that I have attended for the past eight weeks drew to a close.

What awesome times they were! We had the best hosts! They fed us, loved us, learned with us, and fed us... : ) seeing a pattern??? lol

Al D., or "Doc Bean", is pictured here meticulously prepping up vanilla bean seeds for his famous, or rather ALMOST famous Al Bucks coffee.. it's going to catch on... I know it! <3>

Having met and gotten close to some cool new friends, and much as I am saddened to think that I won't be spending Monday nights with them any more - I know that there will be another adventure waiting for me around the corner. Just as awesome as this one has been...

It's autumn - fall.. winter is right around the corner. The next season is looming close by. (entirely TOO close in my almost humble opinion.. : )
Granted, change doesn't come all that easy for me. I have to really work at my attitude regarding changes in my life.

So... my options: I can moan, groan, complain and caterwaul that I have to move on, OR I can anticipate more fun and more adventure... but it is going to have to be some really cool stuff to outdo the times with "Doc" and his most wonderful wife, Heather! <3

So, while change isn't exactly easy, it IS after all New England... and if you don't like the weather, then just wait a minute!

Made for more

Hello again!

It's Tuesday, but feels like Monday. I was away in New Bedford, Sunday celebrating a 40th (c'mon, do we really celebrate getting older??? ) birthday... May your day rock, Kris! <3>

Anyway, this weekend seemed to have a theme running through it. Like a finely woven tapestry.

Everywhere I turned there was some great (what we in churchland call) fellowship. I have found I can't live without it. When I am with my God family, we have a bond that we can't even explain, really. It's that wonderful spiritual connection that keeps us close.

When I am with my physical family, we have other bonds, i.e. the bonds of experience that keep us close. We laugh with and at each other... : P we cry with and for each other. We get aggravated as heck at each other. And somehow, hopefully, get past it. : )

When I was out in the bars playing music every other thing, I had a bond with the people that I played with. That was family. We made great (usually) music together, and we almost always had deep friendships with each other. Common cause was another great factor.

We so crave belonging, don't we? We were made to belong. Especially to the one that made us... : D

So what's the point of all this reflecting and rambling? Go out there and get threaded in!!! It's good for you!!!
