Fab Life >> Grateful
Good morning on this quiet Saturday here where I'm at. I'm the only one awake at the moment and it's 5:56 a.m. The sun will be making its appearance anytime now. The moon is waning hard, so we'll only see a sliver of it today in the sky. By the way, and if you have an interest in this kind of thing, when the moon is waning, it's a good time to deep think about things you want to vanish from your life, to coincide with the vanishing of the moon, come the new moon. During a new moon, the sun is not shining on it out in the universe, so we don't see it. This lasts for a few days, so you have a few days to muddle over what you want to get rid of. I wouldn't waste too much time on this though, just do your deep think and move on. You're much better spending your time in a neutral state, meditative, erasing all thoughts and just being one with nature. I know, easier said than done; but as they say, practice makes perfect.
I've been recovering this past week, as last week for Thanksgiving I went to Florida to visit with my family and friends and for the first time since covid. I have much to be grateful / thankful for. It was also the first time on a plane since covid and I felt a ping of anxiety at the airport. I've been extra careful during covid and not wanting to get it for obvious reasons: not wanting to die and not wanting to deal with the long term effects. Happy to report my hold didn't get it. I read the best thing on twitter the other day. Someone wrote: "I'd die for my country" and another responded: "You won't even take a shot for your neighbor." At this point, I don't really care if people don't want to get vaccinated, it will prolong the virus though, because it has hosts to latch onto. I got my booster before heading down, so I had my suit of armor on. Omicron is here now and we'll probably see more and more strains come out until it's eradicated all together. Who knows when that'll be!
My trip was non-stop. Every time I go to Florida I always say I want this trip to be more low-key, because I always end up going from here to there and end up wiped out. As much as I tried to have lower key trip, I was booked out from the moment I landed to the moment I took off again. I'm grateful to have a full life of loving family and friends and thankful I got to see them, hug them and spend time with them. I had a blast! I'm not great at remembering to take pictures, so my pics are half stories / with half the people. The rest...is time stamped into my long term memory life book, as I, like everyone else, am the protagonist in the story of my life:
