random thursday night thoughts...

If there is a bright side to large snow dumps, it's that I read a lot more.  And watch a lot more television, which I'm sure some would argue is a waste of time, but obviously, they have never gotten sucked into the show, Fringe.  I've made it through the first two seasons in a week and have just started the current season (three). 

I'm currently finishing up a re-read of the first Harry Potter book.  I also just started Glad No Matter What: Transforming Loss and Change into Gift and Opportunity by Sark.  My mother died two years tomorrow and it's still this huge cloud over my head, following me around and miring me in storms.  I have this cycle of being really angry, feeling guilty, feeling sad, and angry again.  I've been working with my therapist and journaling and hoping that at some point I'll see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I'm hoping this book might help me use my creative strengths to further my journey. 

Now I'm off to read some blogs and play with my new phone.  I've finally entered the 21st century and gotten a smart phone.  Mostly because my five-year-old phone randomly stopped working and I feared being trapped in the snow or some sort of emergency without a way to call for help (as though I live in the woods and not suburbs of Philly).

There is something wonderful about snow that makes us "hibernate". "Oh no, it's snowing. We have to have friends over for dinner and wear slippers...for survival of course." :) Good to hear your working through the winter. Wishing you much Joy and Healing.

Best~

I have several of Sark's books, but not that one. I need to get it, though. I feel like I need to say something profound and sympathetic and right, but...I got nothing. Losing a parent is just completely discombobulating. We just have to do the best we can. If you ever need to/want to talk, you know where to find me.
