beautiful nature photos: encapsulated

dearest odyssians,

little sprout in a bubble
life encapsulated… now just hit spin cycle

new question: Am i always busy or am i just mismanaging my time? feeling like im on the hamster wheel of life next to a bigger hamster and that bigger hamster just keeps running and running…hes wearing a tshirt emblazoned with “c’est la vie” in big bold letters.  im trying to keep up, but feel im not doing a very good job. realization: i cant step off – proverbial wheel’s already going too fast. additional realization: if i just say “screw it” and stand still ill end up being stuck to the wheel by gravity and flipping around, over and over. neither is an option. gotta keep runnin til the big guy gets tired.

so im sending this message to the time gods. odie mama needs a whole week off to do nothing but “figure it out”. this only works if while im away the world  freezes.

til then: my wheels a turnin and my feet are a burnin…..

are any of you guys feeling this rat race thing going on?  maybe its a star sun moon earth planet space universal time galaxy alignment thing. cuz my life should be a breeze right now.

alrighty then. ill be ok. in time.

hugs, o and om

amazing nature sci fi landscapes: as the sky falls (so we fall with it)

dearest odyssians,

we tuned out a bit yesterday but are back on board. been a bit of rough sailing around these parts and finally great to have resettled into the captains chair as the storm has passed. we even loosened up enough to put our feet up on the proverbial ottoman of life. less rum, more coke, i say. odie was lapside as i enjoyed lots of darjeeling while surfing the matrix after surviving the business of acting/auditioning at ungodly morning hours. our relaxed position belies our anxiety/belief that the next few weeks will bring more than a few critical turning points. everythings dancing at the edge of the cliff of our minds. will we be brave enough to jump? will be brave enough to stand still? whats the third option?

hang on to your newly fitted hats! its going to be one hell of a july….

hugs,

o and om.

beautiful nature landscapes: woodland waterfall

dearest odyssians,

these days, at home. alone. with the cat. have been some of the most enjoyable. the quiet has become a priviledge that i might not be able to part with anytime soon. a warm safe coccoon that finds me sheltered in refreshing ways. yet even here, the work of a lifetime continues; writing the dialogue for my screenplay.

still, in this self made sanctuary, there are challenges to be faced. and conquered. thats complete living.

if we werent here. we’d be here (as in ‘here in the picture shown above’. ) lying out. on biodegradable plastic lined blankets***. immune to the dampness of the moss. just soaking in the rushing woosh of the woodland waterfall nearby that we let our hiking boots and fur covered paws dip into.  only the sounds of a rustling in the trees made by one of miracle’s unseen creatures might break our meditation. or the call of an unknown bird. and odies head would swivel around like a keen owl’s..

ahh. the thought alone comforts me. odies already deep into his 8-12 nighttime nap, perhaps dreaming of this setting, his comfort already complete.

btw. just realized i turned off spellcheck. about a week ago. hope no one has seen a difference between how poor odies spellcheck was before and the work we’ve done completely unmonitored since. ha :) we haven’t notice.. til now. alas.

**we would not leave the blankets there to degrade. just mentioning how we’d be as nature friendly as possible on our visit.

alright. goodnite. and hugs. to a serene friday,

o and om.
