Daily Reminder # 559

I forgot about my new schedule.  Sigh. I think I will just share a video and my gratitude. Angel and I have been having words. Well I have been having words. Extremely loud words. She - who has been chewing on Christmas trees and electric wires - sits there looking all tragic and I... ME... I feel guilty. What is wrong with this picture?  I also think that my computer mouse is dying. My field mouse, alas, is not.... Well, not that I want it to die. I just want it to go away. I know I have said that before. I'm hoping if I say it often enough it will happen. I think it actually did go away for a bit and then came back. Argh. I am cranky.  Cassie the agoraphobic cow - this could be my imagination - told me this morning that she doesn't like her name. She wants to be called Emily. Do you know how foolish I feel writing to a bunch of hard working, grounded adults to tell them that their cow doesn't like her name?  (Hint: VERY.)

Here's a little Joseph Campbell. Anyone who has not seen the six part series of Conversations on The Power of Myth between Bill Moyers and Joseph Campbell at least once should make it a life mission to do so. It will enrich you. It will change you. It will lift your Spirit and touch your Soul and your imagination. I think you can watch it here for free. 

and a little more Joseph Campbell...

Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude, an effort to train myself in the art and joy of desire and to entice the Creative Forces of the Universe to come out and play with me and bring me cool stuff as well as helping me to fulfill other desires.)

Wow! I didn't know you could get agoraphobic cows. I suppose any reasonably well-developed aminal could become agoraphobic, I just enver thought about it.

I'll be interested to learn what happens if your friends do change Cassie's name to Emily.

Cassie may be her slave name. She should have the right to choose her own name. We all should. I know you feel silly about this, but I think you may be translating something that her spirit is communicating.
