Journal Entry 12.18.2015

Yet another snow day.  The snow started after 10:00 a.m. and continued most of the day.  At 6:00 p.m. PST, it is finally turning into rain as a warm front from the Pacific enters the region.  We’ve had more rain and snow this December than we’ve had for the last two WINTERS, at least that’s my impression!

I’m leaving on a jet plane and don’t know when I’ll get back, again… well I do know, but I like that line from an old song.  I have cat sitters and my neighbors will be watching the house.

Here’s a few snapshots of our little snow storm.  I’ve noticed that even the most mundane objects take on a certain magic when covered with snow.

  1. I love the Buddha in snow! Have a blessed time, Eliza
    (I too love that song – it is evocative of a breaking up of a relationship decades ago [but we’re still friends.] I think I’m like you that way – no room for hard feelings as relationships lessen.

    • The “Buddha” is Master Hotei, an ancient Zen monk who used to travel the Chinese countryside. I grew up with a wooden version of him in the livingroom, as the “Happy God”. This particular version has moved with me for the last 20 years.

      • Thanks for telling me. I’d like to know more about him.
        Bon voyage!

  2. Hi Eliza,   I am one of your blog followers.  I replied when you asked for input about your blog some time ago, not that you would recall off hand.  I live in Grovetown, GA (just outside of Augusta), and wanted to extend the invitation that if you get up this way, about three hours from Savannah, to stop in for a visit!  I’m sure you have a full itinerary but felt I would be remiss if I didn’t extend the invitation. I could also travel to Savannah to meet you for lunch or coffee.   I sometimes feel a connection to you, usually in the half asleep state late at night, which is why I feel I can’t let this opportunity pass, even though it is very far out of my comfort zone.  I leave it to your discretion of course, and please do not feel the need to respond.  I understand it is most likely far too late for making changes to your itinerary.   Anyway, thank you for sharing so much of yourself!  I always look forward to hearing how you are doing, and am so grateful to have the opportunity to read your blog.  Your insights, wisdom, and channels are such a unique gift!    Have a wonderful vacation; it’s a beautiful area of the country and I hope you have a splendid vacation and a very Merry Christmas!!   All the best, Kimberly Wojcik 706-504-5719 (cell)        

    • How thoughtful, Kimberly. Thank you. Not sure if I have time this visit, but I plan to move to South Carolina in the Spring. Perhaps we can meet then when I’ve settled in somewhat. I’ll be about an hour from Savannah or so… depending where we end up. And thank you for your kind comments. Felice Navidad del Christos!
