Dream Thought #89 : Forget what other people say




"You have to forget about what other people say, when you’re supposed to die, or when you’re supposed to be loving. You have to forget about all these things." – Jimi Hendrix

Star Wars 40th

Star Wars is celebrating its 40th anniversary today.

I remember as a little girl standing on a big line down in Times Square around 45th to see Star Wars. I remember watching the movie and my eight year old brain blown away by what I saw. I was hooked on Star Wars to that day till to now. If you read my blog before, you know how deep my love for Star Wars goes. If you are new here, welcome my friends. I am about to show you all some Star Wars gems I have from my collection of pictures, trading cards, action figures.

Yes, it is the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader. This is actually one of my favorite action figures I have.( Unfortunately, his light saber got misplaced.) My mom got this for me way back in 1980! My mom is the best.


These are trading cards from The Empire Strikes Back. I started collecting in 1980 when I was 11. Before summer camp or school, I go to my local stationary store to buy a pack of trading cards. I did this for months.



The next two images are on my wall in my bedroom. This is from an advertisement for a Star Wars video game. Loved the words and artwork.


This is a picture of Luke and I along with Star Wars quotes. The picture of me is from 3rd grade. How I looked in 1977.


Finally, my prized collection. My now faded autograph from Mark Hamill. I got to chance to me him in 1996. (Totally forgot to bring a camera!) He was so sweet to me. One of the many reasons why I love Mark. It is of my fondest memories.




Thank you for allowing me to share my love of Star Wars. Of course, May The Force Be With You Always.

Thursday Inspiration

Happy Thursday, my friends. I decided to let my Muse inspire me. I was pinning on Pinterest. I closed my eyes, wherever my finger landed I put right here. The images that I felt like a yes I put here. You can play along too, look at the pictures. Which one are you drawn to? Imagine what the message has for you. Signs are everywhere immbed in the fabric of your life. You have to look and listen closely.


This is what I got when looked at each picture:


Relationships with your father can get really complicated....


Better to be Strong and people think you are crazy than be downtrodden and well liked.


Coziness breeds contentment.


Magic is not limited to a moon cycle. Magic flows 24-7.


Moonlight is good for my soul.


Hope you like this. If you got a message from one of the pictures, I love to know.

The Feast Day of St. Dymphna



Today is the feast day of St. Dymphna. She is the partron saint for people with anxiety, depression, emotional pain, mental illness and sexual abuse. I have several of her medals and prayers that I use when I feel anxious or deeply upset.

I just lit my St. Dymphna candle from her national shrine in Ohio.


I don't feel that Saint Dymphna cares what religious faith you come from, only that you come to her with a true need and wish to be helped. Her energy to me is, as I have written before, is gentle and kind.

Wishing you all a peaceful Monday.
