Samhain Recipe

 “We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” Joseph Campbell

Not always go things as we planned but that  is really OK, the world is ever changing daily and what is in today is out tomorrow.

let it all go
Time for some Samhain cooking today...

Saute apples and onion in butter until tender. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl, and split stuffing between the 6 squash halves. Bake for another 20 minutes.

Forgotten Souls

We are the forgotten souls
That fell down long ago
Our bodies lie here in the Underground
And we just want our families to know
It was I, kindness, who fell down first
With my apron and my pan
The farthest I got was Hotland
Because I was caught by a pink robot man
I only wish I could've lasted longer
To fulfill my chef aspiration
But my cooking knowledge didn't help me
From going through mummification

I, justice, was the next to go
It was Waterfall where it happened
I came face to face with a strong willed warrior
And I was completely flattened
I did give it my all
And I even took her eye
But I still wasn't strong enough
So I had to say goodbye
But without Mercy I ended up under stone
I feel like a disappointment
I just want to see my family again
But trapped underground just as a soul
It's never going to happen

It was I, perseverance who was the next to meet my fate
With my glasses on my face and a book in my hands
My knowledge got me quite far
Until I got stuck in spider silk strands
I only wish to be remembered
By the few that knew me
I only had a couple of friends
But I'd like them here so I can be happy
I am integrity who was the one to fall next
I was defeated by Sans the skeleton
After losing my items in Waterfall
There was nothing I could've done
All I wanted to do was practice dancing on the mountain
Because my dream was to be the 'Star in Blue'
I miss my parents terribly
I wonder if they miss me too

At last it was I, patience,
Who was the last to fall
I lost my life in the ruins
Because Toriel couldn't save me from a monster brawl
I went down with my toy knife
Up for a good old fight
But after meeting Toriel
I went off to hide my knife, to save her from a fright
We are the forgotten souls
That fell down long ago
Our bodies lie here in the Underground
And we just want our families to know

I was thinking it was some kind of paranormal activity, especially now during this time in the year where zombies, ghosts and witches make their journeys to frighten you.

I know, Bones...even the dead are watching us.
Nightmares are common after an accident, injury, physical or sexual abuse, or other traumatic event. Nightmares are common in people who have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

There is really no treatment for any nightmares since they can be very common especially in children and also adults. Stress and anxieties or certain worries may bring them into your slumber.

You are NOT real...and please put on a bathrobe :)
Imagery rehearsal therapy. Often used with people who have nightmares as a result of PTSD, imagery rehearsal therapy involves changing the ending to your remembered nightmare while awake so that it's no longer threatening. You then rehearse the new ending in your mind. This approach may reduce the frequency of nightmares.

Family Portrait
A Slumber did my spirit seal; 
I had no human fears: 
She seemed a thing that could not feel 
The touch of earthly years. 

No motion has she now, no force; 
She neither hears nor sees; 
Rolled round in earth's diurnal course, 
With rocks, and stones, and trees. ~Wordsworth

Bits and pieces

a crystal 
within a 
mind's eye 
awaits a 
& love?"
Dancing and singing in the rain
Thursday Nights with Likka and Dandy and you never know what might happen here at the Club. Apparently mesh products take some time to rezz and often you get to see what maybe was a bit more private. Then again, might me a good view anyway. We are here Mondays and Thursdays 8-10 PM SLT.

Deb...well all of her
Lucky for "Deb" the Club was still a bit empty and wardrobe failure was just for us to enjoy. I am sure others would have feast on this.

Run, Likka, run!

When we’re anxious, it’s because we’re worried about a future situation we think we can’t or may not be able to handle. Spontaneity demonstrates is the opposite. That you’ll handle life as it comes. “I’ll cross that bridge successfully when I come to it. No need to worry about it now.” A lot of times I run from it.

Ouija board, Ouija board, Ouija board 
Would you help me? 
Because I still do feel 
So horribly lonely

And I just can't find 
My place in this world

Oh no, you scared old scarecrow...I did not like that!
Listen up! You do not go and scare little witches like hear me? I can easily turn you into Hansel...and you know what happened to him...he burned in the oven...

Never give your heart to a stranger

Chapel at the Retreat 
Or tell your secrets to a friend
You'll put your heart in mortal danger
They all desert you in the end...t
he more you live the more you love
Or so they say the more you love the more you go away

They say that nothing lasts forever And even true love turns to pain Don't trust your feelings to a stranger Don't want to go through this again...You see, I quite honestly believe that every stranger we pass on the street is a connection lost. Every stranger holds the potential to divert our direction, be it for a day or a lifetime. Call it the butterfly effect, sliding doors, whatever it’s an idea that I find both incredibly liberating and terrifying at the same time.

I suppose you could argue that these glorified strangers,the ones we fall for in fleeting silence,they’re the necessary catalyst for the unattainable notion of some cinematic, Utopian idea of happiness, a counterweight to the often depressive nature of being an over-thinking, 20-something romantic. It’s as soothing as it is frustrating. It is the ability to consciously shift our scorned affections onto the mere projection of a person: someone who can’t let you down, someone who can’t hurt you.

Pardon me, dear stranger
A day without you 
Is like a day without sunshine
Full of Darkness with sad clouds far above
Sadness, a day full of 
Misery and emptiness within me 
You may be out of my sight 
But never out of my mind
And my sunshine will soon return....

Pardon me, dear stranger
I don't know how you feel
but give me a chance
I'll make you see
It's meant to be!

A smile took my gaze and I grinned,
something wonderful come from within,
Emanated from the both of us.
This feeling couldn't be contained,
ascertained to a fairy tale dream,
the greatest feeling I ever conceived.

They say that women are a mystery. Maybe you agree, and maybe you don’t. But think about it – women are human beings just like everyone else. So, they are not as complicated as you might think. Treat her as your queen and she will worship you back.
Everyone has needs and desires. And sometimes people are naturally compatible with fulfilling each other’s needs, but often, that’s not true. Pay attention to each other and then, take action! It’s not that hard. And trust me, your efforts will be worth it.

Little things count  the most...those should come easy...thank you, please, and so on...after all she is the queen. A feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements equals R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

You’ll be the queen in the kingdom of his heart;
And then he'll be the king, so you’ll never be apart.
You’ll be his majesty — he will serve you forever;
And for all of times, he will leave you never...

well a girl can dream now...right....????

Do you believe in Magick?

I am just an average witch, meaning no harm to anyone.
Within the practice of witchcraft there exists a creature that few outside of the craft will have any awareness of. It is a strange and often dangerous creature known as a “familiar.” Black cats, owls and crows are among the favorites, so be aware of any female that likes those kind of animals. Chances are she may be a witch and will want to cast her magick on you.

Come and feel my power as I tame you all!
The Witches Cauldron
"Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog"
"Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing"

"For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and babble"

"Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble"

~ William Shakespeare

Just one more spell and he is mine!

Are you ready to believe in magick? Good!!! After all she is the queen :) 

Always obey!

You Have To Believe To Receive

Every time you begin to feel doubt creeping in, ask yourself this quick set of questions and you should find yourself renewed with positivity, helping you to manifest love much quicker.
Remember, the entire universe is rooting for you!
I do not want to go out and meet anyone
When we fail to unburden ourselves of the invisible baggage we have picked up from previous relationships or past experiences, you are sabotaging your chances of finding true love and happiness.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?
Paint the perfect picture in your mind’s eye of what you are looking for and that is what you can attract.
Spend time getting clear on what it is that you want.
No guys, none of you are my type...A lot of what closes us off to connections is being overly judgmental of the people who show up in our lives. Having a strict "must have" list a mile long for our prospective partner is often just a form of self-sabotage.
Sometimes you have to look inside in order to find what you need and want. It doesn't matter how unattractive you think you are, no one deserves a partner who abuses or disrespects them. Pay attention to the signs of someone who mistreats you and know when to walk away--even if it means being alone.
Sometimes "the Universe" will test you like this. You will receive a bad match and it will wait and see if you have the strength to politely decline.

But if I kiss you will your mouth read this truth...

...And I'll owe it all to you, oh, my little bird,My little bird.

I only pet  him and he fainted...pinky swear.

And thou art dead, as young and fair 
As aught of mortal birth; 
And form so soft, and charms so rare, 
Too soon return'd to Earth! 
Though Earth receiv'd them in her bed, 
And o'er the spot the crowd may tread 
In carelessness or mirth, 
There is an eye which could not brook 
A moment on that grave to look. 

  Sometimes I get frightened by all the animals I have around the Retreat, but they keep me company when nobody is around.

 So this is how it feels to be lonely
This is how it feels to be small
This is how it feels when your word means nothing at all...

I'm not sure 'cause sometimes we're so blind....

Wise men say
It looks like rain today
It crackled on the speakers
And trickled down the sleepy subway trains...

The full moon's bright
And starlight filled the evening
We wrote it and I played it
Something happened it's so strange this feeling
Naive notions that were childish
Simple tunes that tried to hide it...
Did we, didn't we, should we, couldn't we I'm not sure 'cause sometimes we're so blind
Struggling through the day...

I am haunted by ghosts and demons when I sleep, my unconsciousness awakens, what I buried so deep. People get tired of hearing the same fears and stories and believe it could all wash away with the waves of the ocean. That would be easy. You constantly thinking poisoned, painful, victimized thoughts is as deadly as any self-abuse, and it is more damaging to your psyche by far than what anyone else has ever done to you.
