Beautiful, apposite lyrics, Janie. It doesn't matter...your words, someone else's. You took the time & trouble to search out that lovely song & let someone else speak for you. I say: "Why not?"
         I wrote earlier about "Thread Fatigue". When a thread has been running for as long as 'Jane's Rainbow', I think there is also the possibility of "Comment Fatigue" too. There have been many times I've struggled to find something 'from the heart' that was both fresh & comforting. Unlike Janie, I often simply didn't post. Janie, the words may be someone else's, but the feelings & emotions they express are yours.
                                    With Love,

Still not able to find my own voice.

ON A DAY LIKE TODAY
(Bob Dyer)

On a day like today, in the heat of this late summer weather,
There's a haze in the trees and the sound of the bees in the clover;
There's a hawk in the sky, there's a shine on the wide river's water,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

CHORUS: But the seasons keep changing,
And the days just keep running away,
And forever's a gift you're forever giving away.

On a day like today, in the last golden days of October,
There's a chill in the air and a light haze of frost on the clover;
There's a fire in the trees, there's a sound in the breeze like a whisper,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

On a day like today, in the heart of a long, bitter winter,
With the light from the moon making stars on the snow in the clover,
I sit down by the fire in the heat of its slow, dying embers,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.

It's a morning in spring, and the dew on the jewel weed still glistens,
And I almost can hear new life being born as I listen;
I walk down by the spring and I drink from its clear flowing water,
And I feel deep inside something wanting to stay here forever.


On A Day Like Today

Will try again with a post that I tried to submit about 6 times last evening...

Keeping you all in heart and mind each day. Days waiting for test results have to be some long old days. Prescription med damage...long term use of Arthrotec does bad things to kidneys; fortunately we had one doc retired and replaced with one who was aware, and I probably haven't lost enough to be in trouble.
We're both cruising along fine physically, and Judy continues to do remarkably well considering surviving a remarkably long time "flat-lined". We're nowhere near at the level of invalid care, but numerous little mental disconnects, and frequent difficulty in communicating, can be taxing, especially for the lady herself. Thanks be that she can still enjoy singing in the choir (so long as her friends help see that the stole goes over the robe, there is something about changes in clothing outside our own home...) and that we both can still enjoy morning exercise-followed-by-coffee-with- friends routines, travel, etc.    Keeping you all in heart and mind each day.

I derive an enormous sense of peace & protection, simply reading your posts. It's like walking into a warm, cosy room, full of my closest, most loved, most trusted friends. There would have to be a log fire of course (-: I'm in that room right now.
          There is some news regarding Aunt Chris. She is due a further biopsy tomorrow & was told by her Oncologist that despite the difficulty of treating the form of cancer she has, once treated, the success rate is better than 95%. Ann & I are hoping for good outcomes, all-round. Ann continues to play the waiting game...test results & a referral to the surgeon who saved her life seven years ago when she was diagnosed with a metastatic malignant melanoma.
         Which brings me to me! I was told yesterday that some of the meds. I've been taking for over three years have been miss-prescribed. The side effects I've endured, coupled with the fact that they have caused life-long complications (which require additional treatment) renders me incandescent with anger & confusion. Someone once said: "If you're angry, take action. Don't become paralysed by the anger". I'm going to speak to my solicitor today with a view to sending a strongly worded letter to the CEO of the relevant health authority...a 'shot across the bow', not the first step towards litigation. Proving negligence is a notoriously difficult, expensive, long drawn-out process, which I can neither afford nor sustain constitutionally.
         Sending love & Life's rich blessings to you all. Could someone put another log on the fire, please?

300 year old glass!

Each October I attend a small festival/gathering at Australia's oldest industrial complex taht is still in use, the Old Goulburn Brewery built 1832-36 & each year I check out the glass in the Mill windows. One pane has a pontil mark the size of my thumbprint, another one has a tiny pontil mark & I make sure they are still there as some panes are broken. Fortunately the owners love the history of the complex & would never replace the panes with modern glass.

But I still look!

Good morning all,

the sun is out in Frinton this morning, sparkling on the blue sea, in fact it is unseasonable warm for the end of October.

Sending love and healing to " auntie Chris" and Ann, Tommy, Maeve , Gnu and of course our captain Nigel.

Sammy had a difficult weekend, mainly in bed, she will see her GP on Thursday and insist (?) on a hospital emergency appointment but I am phoning the Private Consultant's secretary to day as a back up. We had the little girls over the weekend and took them to see their uncle Christopher and Reuben. We saw the concert with "Sid " from the BBC and they all really enjoyed themselves, although swatting a fly and breaking a three hundred year old window wasn't in the plan!! Good job Christopher is the theatre manager!!

sailing on

Here's hoping, mauve, that whatever the challenges are this week, it goes ok. Thoughts and prayers also to aunt chris, Nigel and Ann, Wendy,billy and sammy, as well as entering into the rejoicing.               We are at caravan at windchelsea with the boys. Tommy don't seem too bad , but his readings are too low sometimes, and we are always aware that at 15 now the danger increases with his condition.      At church in rye yesterday, becky had a strange experience. She 'heard' a voice telling her tommy was leaving, and had a vivid image of him radiant and restored. This was disturbing and comforting at the same time. I suggested it could be a spiritual experience, or maybe a chemical reaction in the brain.                Blessings.   Pete.

Thank you, Sandra. I am deeply indebted to my Aunt Chris. It's a long story which I will get around to telling...but not yet.

Gnu, I can't remember whether Pat PM'd me the following blessing, or if it was part of a regular post. I am not a 'Man of God', but the words are still redolent with meaning & fit perfectly with the Man I grew to know & love...I can almost hear his voice speaking this:

       "May the good earth be soft under you 
when you rest upon it,
and may it rest easy over you when,
at the last, you lay out under it,
And may it rest so lightly over you
 that your soul may be out 
from under it quickly,
and up, and off,
And be on its way to God."

                                          With Love,
                                                          Nigel.

Some good reading here. As gnu says: "Brightens my day (too)"

We were hoping Ann was going to get her discharge from Oncology at her last appointment. Her MRI was clear, but some enlarged lymph nodes showed up under ultrasound, so we're waiting to see her surgeon. All the health professionals kept saying: "Nothing to panic about" just a little too often for my liking.

Could we send some 'Mudcat Mojo' to my amazing Aunt Chris. At the age of 91, she's been diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer. She's booked for surgery next week. Yesterday, she drove to the shops & walked her dog...she's such a gutsy lady, but the cancer diagnosis has scared her.

I have mentioned our daughter Sammy has Crohns disease before, it has come back over the past two months after being in remission for eight years. Sam has lost 2 stone in that time and the hospital has been diagnosing over the phone. Alas the steroid has not improved her condition at all, she is hardly able to leave the house yet the consultants appointment ( fast track ,they said) is December 12th !! I am going to phone his private secretary today and see if we can get a private appointment, she cannot go on like this till December. I will be in her bad books but " its only money" and her private insurance does not cover pre existing conditions. As you know our NHS has been brilliant looking after my husband Billy and I am sure that once she gets to see the consultant they will be equally as good, but I am so worried that they will only speed up when she becomes an emergency? So prayers and thoughts please crew?

Meanwhile BB and I are having the girls as often as possible, so tomorrow we are taking them to see "The nutcracker" ballet and on sunday we are going to our son's theatre to see a production with the BBC's children's entertainers.

Onward and upward,

( by the way mum has not noticed my brother is not visiting in the evenings and Billy's BP has gone down due to less stress!)

sailing on

much love

I've been checking in every day, reading, but not posting as regularly as I would've liked. I'm not very good when it comes to apportioning internet time, so the lion's share has gone to my website, which desperately needs updating, redesigning & kicking up it's cyber backside! It's still 'work in progress', so you won't see any changes yet...need some help & inspiration from those good folk at my local Apple Store.
       I have made time, however, to re-read many PMs, both sent & received...words of love, compassion & wisdom from those still with us & from the Dear Departed...words like: ".....we have so many here who offer so much of themselves, it has buoyed my spirits & my sense of friendship in a way I would have never believed possible in the cyber world....."

It is a wonderful place, look it up on the internet. Colchester is Britains oldest town and the Roman remains are all over the town, including a stadium for chariot racing! We are only 20 minutes away by car but I had not been inside the castle since I was in my teens! This is the joy of being a grandmother, Billy and I have a brilliant excuse for having lovely days out. Sutton Hoo next, only forty minutes away.

so glad he is home, and back at school even though they sent for you.I guess the school just takes extra caution?

I did walk down to the beach hut on sunday morning for a coffee, the sun was shining for a couple of hours. On Saturday we took the granddaughters to Colchester Castle,what a brilliant place, they gave the girls a tablet computer thingy? and it showed them what the castle looked like and what people were dressed in. How Colchester was first ruled by the Romans and how the castle was built on the site of the Roman temple. We even went into the dungeons complete with sound effects of the witch finder general's trials!! They had a lovely day out of the rain.

Sending love and best wishes to all

sailing on

Wendy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sad but then good to hear about Tommy. Hope all sorts out.

The chicken dinner was great. I did not have much. Deferred for soup. The soup is delicious... better after a night in the pantry.

Maeve, Joe's back home. He posted that on Facebook's Mudcat Cafe page on October 9th that the had evacuated from 3-9 PM. I tried to copy Joe's post, but I guess Facebook doesn't let people do that. I think I've tried that and failed before. He also posted photos of the fire, smoke, and firefighting planes.

Pete, I'm glad Tommy was in out of the hospital after just one day. I hope he continues to improve at home.

Gnu, I'm sure your chicken was delicious. Any sides with that?

I haven't heard back from Joe Offer as to how things are going for him, but he has posted a couple of times since Janie's note about his Facebook post about having to evacuate due to the fires out in California. Has anyone else gotten an update?

Fair winds to all- how be ye?

Maeve
