Dribs and Drabs, On A Final March Morning

March 31, 2016, Prescott- I woke this morning, to an insistence from the Universe, that I not move too quickly, at first.  So, the shower was leisurely, a “hit the ground running” job request was declined (Throwing myself together, for a forty-five minute drive, at the last minute, would not have ended well, this morning.)

Some readers think I’m too self-centered.  I guess it can look that way, from a distance.  Truth is, not an hour goes by, that thoughts and prayers aren’t with someone less fortunate.  My thoughts right now are with a young lady whom I regard as a niece, dealing with her second severe loss, in less than a year, and with three young people, in different parts of this continent, whose financial woes are presented as intractable.  While I wish I had the resources to get several people straight, my inner Dave Ramsey gets channeled and I can best send them the spiritual energy to make do with what is, and build from there, as I have made myself do- thanks to two men named Dave.

The March lion is a bit tamer today.  It’s a bit cool, but that will change, drastically, as April arrives.  We’re anticipating temps in the mid-80’s here, next week.  Water conservation, at least in my apartment, continues unabated.

My Reading List for April is,at present:  Continuing, and finishing, “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself:  How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One”, by Dr. Joe Dispenza ( This is a “get out of your comfort zone” book, lent me by a dear friend); “Atlantis:  Insights From A Lost Civilization”, by Shirley Andrews (This one relies on actual science to extrapolate how things were, in that fabled place.); “Marco Polo:  The Journey That Changed The World”, by John Man (also relying on historical records to tell the story of the man who helped get Europe out of its medieval doldrums); “The Billionaire’s Vinegar”, by Benjamin Wallace (This is the last of the books given me, by my paternal uncle, and weaves a classic tale of fraud, perpetrated on a naive and greedy man of means); “All The Light We Cannot See”, by Anthony Doerr (This is a tale of two young people, in the Brittany of World War II, who are brought together, in the most harrowing of circumstances.)  These, and study of a Baha’i text, will take up my reading April.

The rest of today will be getting errands done, and catching up with friends in town.  The lamb is rearing its head, so I must get going.

  1. I love reading your posts. And I don’t think you are self centered. 🙂
    I haven’t read any of the books you mentioned. But the “Billionaire’s Vinegar” seems very interesting.

  2. I’m ignoring a book hot in the nineties about personality types at the moment they did draw an attraction star to each to it’s connection .. I got that far but wonder if i need to known where i am in all that as if i fear it simply says what i ‘d rather ignore/change..I don’t like where i’m at.

  3. I don’t think of you as self centered. 🙂 Marco Polo and Atlantis are both topics I would like to learn more about. Some think Atlantis is under water now. I wonder if that could happen to us in one apocalyptic day? Blessings.

  4. Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that I loved the Billionaire’s Vinegar because the writer did a great job of telling the true story and also including a lot of facts about old, historical wine, as well as wine history. I think you will find it enjoyable! Thank you for your post!
