Thank you, Madeline, for this very helpful comment. You seem to have an experience and way of looking at things that tells me Nancy must be right--let's connect! I go to LA (where I spent 45 years) fairly often, and maybe we could even meet in person. I will check out your pieces and these sites. Very helpful.

Roberta, thank you for letting me know you're reading (we never know, do we?" I love the fact that Grace appears in your book as well--glad she wandered over to my mind. Thanks for following me, and for your work in the world.

Thank you, Tricia! Margie was indeed an inspiration. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Joanna, thank you for this thoughtful response. Right away I thought of my family in LA and urged my daughter to update their earthquake preparedness system and equipment. I'm sure you can help people there be fully conscious of the danger and the ways to prepare in case. And having been through a damaging earthquake (I still remember the Anaheim one), you can offer your compassionate prayers and thoughts. I appreciate your taking the time to share in this way.

Thank you for commenting, Trisha! Sounds like you know what I mean from your experience with your father. We can watch the shell/body shriveling and growing more transparent, and see the spirit shining through. I also saw this with my mother, who died of cancer at a much earlier age--but the same phenomenon happened.

Dawna, I appreciated your taking the time to register your concern, and I hope I communicated the sadness I felt about having to take action. But hundreds of Africanized, aggressive bees in my dining room went over the line for me. I have semi- allergic reactions to bees, and simply could not live with it or hope they would leave on their own. The only way to make the house safe for us was to remove the hive. My intention, in spite of this, was to show how I do honor bees and was at least happy to learn more about them and to gain a teaching from them. I wish my shamanic journey to the queen had been successful and that they would have left on their own. We need their presence on the planet! Blessings to you. Pam

Thank you so much, Sue, for that lovely comment! You are clearly connected, or you would not resonate! This leadership direction is calling me deeply at the moment, so I'm particularly grateful for your comment.

Thank you, Darlene and Tricia, for your comments! Darlene, I completely understand how much you miss the sea, and am so happy that my piece helped. I have said hello for you, and send back her peace to you. And Tricia, I am often envious--I was sad to come inland again today!

Wow, Nancy. Scary! And I love the way you told the story. Very visual--and in your case, I'm sure palapable!

Peg, I could not seem to log in to the place where one normally replies to comments, so I'm trying to do that here. Thank you so much for your sharing. What a wonderful decision you and your husband made, and how delighted those friends must be! You've inspired me to visit my friends with my husband, and to hug every one tight. Thank you.

I think this blog is evidence, Roberta, that you're totally adorable, mansion and hottie or not. I think God is smiling.

I also was on pins and needles, Pauline--at least when I thought about it afterwards. But during it, I was too busy problem solving, and seems to be guided through that in a magical, creative way--and the bat cooperated with that! Yes, lots to learn--it felt very mysterious. Thanks for commenting!

Nice post, Andrea. I too, recharge alone--and have to do more and more of that as I get older. I find being with people to be very exciting when there is depth and substance. And even then, I need to rest afterwards!

Wow, Roberta! Sounds pretty traumatic. If you end up with a thyroid related auto-immune situation, let me know. I've learned some things--and not obeying the culture's rules is a big part of my lesson! Heal well.

Andrea, so interesting that you wrote this post now. I'm dealing with the effects of "speed" right now. And writing this, it occurs to me that that's a code name for a drug! I guess I've been addicted. And now my body is flattened. I just had a radioactive iodine treatment for my Graves Disease, which causes hyperthyroid. And my little thyroid was so addicted to speed that instead of giving up, it produced more thyroid hormone! So my doc doubled my meds, and now I'm recovering from that. And, re-assessing my beliefs and habits. (See my post last week on my "butterfly.") A long way of saying thank you for yet one more reinforcement of what I know I need to correct.

Thanks, Lyn, for that fascinating summary of traditional ways to look at makeup and adornment!

Thanks, Aloha Bears, for the comment! Actually I was born in 1943, but we could say we're from the same era, where women were taught to "put on their face." We have earned every line, as you say. Glad you're proud!

Tricia, thank you. I feel the courage this takes, as there's a big part of me that has always colluded with the "be as young as you can" culture. It's hard to resist! And even as I do, I'm holding the caveat that it better look good! Stay tuned...

Such important information--I shared on FB. Good job, Roberta! (But yikes, now what?!)

Thank you, ladies, for these encouraging comments! Roberta, you're a gorgeous example of just what I'm talking about--I may have to post your photo over my mirror! And Monica, unveiling is an apt phrase--it's my theme for this year, and for the women's retreat I'm leading in June. Thank you for your support.

Barb, good to know someone else remembers this! Yes, you and I are living out the new paradigm, thank the goddess!

Julie, Thank you for the history! I see how it looks as though I thought Salome and Herod were married. You're right that it was Herodias who conspired (didn't know Salome was her daughter!) to seduce her husband into doing what she desired. And, I didn't know why she wanted John the Baptist's head--might have known it was something very personal! Thanks for your comment.

Roberta, I love the concept of Arete! It is a perfect component to the work I'm preparing for a women's retreat called Lifting the Veils: Walking in Our True Beauty. Thank you! And, as a fellow blogger for Spirited Woman, I look forward to knowing you better through your writing. Namaste.
