Big thanks to those who came to our BBQ! It was fun!

Hey all, wow, I had lots of fun at the Lord of the Rings movie-fest & BBQ: what perfect weather we had for a Sunday afternoon BBQ! I really liked to getting to see the friends that came over too, thanks, you're great & wonderful!

I'd say a Vegan & nonVegan BBQ & talk, is just about the perfect thing to do on a warm Springtime-weekend.

I Just wanted to share one of the quotes from Lord of the Rings I really loved was, in response to Frodo's grief, and his wish, "I wish that none of this had ever happened..."
Gandolf replies,
"So do all who live to see such times. But it is not for you to decide, it is only for you to choose what you will do with the time you have been given."

I keep reminding myself of that, and it seems so much so that mortality is the waves ebbing on our shore, but it is not the end, but simply a continuation in a new form. We can choose to ignor it, or we can be all too keen to it, loosing site of the here & now. I think to walk along the shore in peace & keen awareness, but active participation, is my ideal & my goal, for now. To just keep walking, and to be aware & participate in the life of the world.

Peace & Love to everyone today & everyday,
