Really, I'm just checking in. It's been over a week since I've written in this blog, and so much has happened in the world. My life, on the other hand, is a bit like those predictable rides in the amusement park, where you're driving a little car and although you move the steering wheel from side to side, the car just stays on the same course. Ah, childhood memories!!
We were invited to a peace-focused meditative party in the mountains on the llth, but didn't end up getting a chance to go. We've got it on the schedule for next year. The couple who host it are delightful, and they've been doing it for several years now.
I focused on staying meditative and centered and sending healing energy to the earth on the 11th. Discovered a song probably many of you have heard, but I had not heard it, called "Grand Central Station" by Mary Chapin Carpenter. She was inspired to write the song after hearing the story of an iron worker's experiences who helped with cleanup at the WTC site. Amazing song. Here's a link to the story about the iron worker that inspired Mary to write the song:
Here's a link to the song's lyrics:
And here's a link to the singer's website if you're interested:
And so life goes on here in Vibrational Health Village. I wonder why my blog has gotten suddenly deluged with hits, when I haven't blogged in over a week, and there haven't even been any discussions or comments in that long either. Puzzling. I don't see my blog as being anything out of the ordinary. Oh well. Thanks for visiting, everyone. I love your comments, so do keep the discussion going.
Something else to mention from this past busy week -- at the last minute we got a chance to go to a Chautauqua concert with an old friend. It was Todd Park Mohr. He started a jam band that has had much popularity over the years. Though I never felt I fit in with his crowd of fans, I've enjoyed quite a few of his songs over the years. I don't enjoy crowds, so don't go to concerts much at all. Glad I made an exception for this one.
He was playing acoustic, which was a real treat. It had been over 15 years since I'd seen him play or sit in on a song or two at Blues Night at JJ McCabe's back in the early 90s. Ancient memories now, or so it seems. He seemed to be approximately the same age as the local college students back then.
What I was impressed with at the concert last Friday, besides his incredible musical performance, is the way he's matured. He's done at least one song about global warming, and is actively interested in philosophy and politics, and such. "The Earth is sick," he said before singing a song that was about healing the earth. Partisan politics aside, it's simple science. Indeed, we must take care of the earth.
It was nice to discover Todd Park Mohr's philosophy blog after the concert:
He has a forum too. He's probably on tour right now so hasn't blogged for awhile.
I've enjoyed the little islands of time here and there spent with family recently. And just today I discovered a tiny device that's not network marketing that can be put on the earpiece of a cell phone and effectively blocks electromagnetic radiation. It's quite a bit less expensive than the one that's sold through network marketing and I can already feel the difference on my cell phone. Of course the ideal is not to use a cell phone at all. We all know that, right?
I've enjoyed receiving communiques from people who've read this blog. Thanks. Keep those communiques coming in!
