Another year coming to a close..and how I wish I could go backwards for just a while, but such is not the way of the world.   My one constant is my pleasure from learned visualization in Lemuria.  I still dock at the pier and climb the hill to phils bakery.He never fails to welcome me with open arms.  It is sad that I find none of the old residences wandering around but perhaps I look in the wrong places.  I have been adding new streets to my Lemuria.  Just ahead if you take the road to the west that is across from the park you will see my found antique shop, a French cafe, and a book store.  The book store owner has no objection if you take a  book out to the front of the cafe and read while you enjoy a coffee.   JOIN ME FOR A CUP?

Renewed creativity

creativity restored   December 25, 2007 
Christmas day
It is the acknowledgment of the birth day of Jesus an I too need to have a birth. I have finally restored my health and my creativity, and discovered my way back into wordpress, so now I need a purpose for 08’. Being 76 my possibilities are a wee bit limited. I feel rather lost in all the old haunts of Soul food café, but discovering Lemuria when Heather was in Europe was my biggest pleasure in this magical world. I could restore my pleasures in Lemuria.

I have also just discovered virtual worlds. The possibilities fascinates me. (I see that Heather has also started down this path too in edna.) Perhaps I could somehow recreate my Lemuria into a virtual world.. It will be a stretch for this old brain but perhaps, if I took my time, I could learn. The pursuit will be worth the effort even if I do not succeed.

 PS:  That donkey in July (next entry) took me down a totally unexpected path: to a scene straight from Grays Anatomy.  One never knows!

A new Journey

path-into-the-woods.jpgI am sitting here, gazing ahead at the path I am anxious to travel down , to start my journey ,but…I am overwhelmed.  I have been spending hours sorting through so many blogs trying to understand how Lemuria now works but cant seem to get a handle on it.   I have to give up and just write here.  I am anxious to get started.  In edna I have left my box at the gate with all my previous expectations, am creating my donkey companion and am ready to hit the trail.Here is what I have left at the gate:I have a plain, brown, cardboard box in my hand but it bothers me. I can not leave such an ordinary box at the gate that contains all my preconceived ideas of a lifetime. They have served me well but now I am about to embark on a new journey in both my visionary and my visual world. I have embraced the reality that everything changes and I now also understand that philosophies must change too. I wish to enter this new adventure with a blank slate. Hopefully I will slowly build a new philosophy that can serve me on the last paths of my journey. I am excited for the opening up to unknown thoughts.  I can not seem to come up with the perfect box.   Perhaps on the journey I will find one to replace this one. For now this one will have to do. I have one more item to add.  It was suggested by my daughter.  It is my compass.  I must not try to  to control this journey.  I am now heading down to the donkey yard to pick up my donkey  Prospero.  He has asked to join me.  He has learned so much from his previous journeys that he is anxious to help me.   (even though he had the help from Ariel on his jouerneys,which h

So Lost

Hello Old friends.  Remember Me?  My apartment at Riversleigh seems to be occupied by someone else.  I hope they are watering my tree of wisdom.  I have been lost in the underworld 0f darkness and have just stepped out into full summer.  100degrees registers on the thermostat on my patio but I do not mind.  I am alive.  I had no pulse on the table at the hospital  for a short while but they said I talked through it.  Figures..I always was accused of talking and laughing all the way out.  Possible?  I don’t know, but thats what they said.  I felt like I was the main actress in a scene on TVs’  Grays Anatomy…but enough..I am back and even though fields of blooming flowers stretch out in front of me and the mountains are purple in the distance I am lost…”Totally Lost”.  I wanted to stop by Phils and have a cup of coffee and a sweetroll on my return to my beloved Lemuria but the gates were locked and I could not figure out the combination.  But then I remembered I was visioncrone in this blog..so here is where I am going to stay.  I think I may move Phil here.  He needs a change as I see no one has visited his bakery in quite a while.  I think I will send him an EMail and invite him over.  But now I must dust the castle, air the sheets and settle back in.  It is always fun to go places but much better to return home.  Jane

On my Journey

Received my order of books and tapes and after grazing through all I seem to be drawn to Santiago de Compostela, Spain, a medieval pilgrimage still traveled today. I discovered a discussion Yahoo group of pilgrim travelers who are from all over the world. Fascinating. My eyes are uncooperative but I am slowly reading Jack Hitts book “Off The Road” . The advantage of only reading a little at a time is it gives me visualization time to really partcipate on the journey.   In the group discussion a lot of the members do not like his book but I do, as he tells all the details, and to me life is in the details. I think I have said that line before. Here is an Example of his writing style:A knock on the door brings the lady herself; dressed in a bright flowered blue dress. Her gray hair is swept back recklessly from her face. Spectacles sit at the lowest possible point on her nose. A single long front tooth rests on her lower lip. Red blossoms beam from her cheeks. ” I can SEE her.” I would be proud if I could write like that.

The world of Pilgrimage

I am constantly amazed when I discover worlds within worlds that exist for me to explore that up to that moment I did not know existed. My biggest passions are creativity (art, fabric creation, writing and travel). I follow my interests on a totally inner direction, ignoring any idea of discipline in my actions. With the help of the used books sold at Amazon.com I discover paths of new interest. That is how I found the huge world of Pilgrimage.I was browsing through audio tapes to listen to as my eyes could not handle the computer screen for any long periods. I ordered a batch of different tapes and among them was “The Art of Pilgrimage ” by Phil Couineau. I was captured and sent for his book. Where had this stuff been all these years? It completely filled all the inner feelings and desires I had been experiencing all these years. My new path of traveling had begun again with more support from the internet then I could have realized.

Starting point

Trail markerJenny introduced me to Paulo Coelho few years ago and I did enjoy it very much, but did not realize that so many people still walk the walk. . Since that time I have picked up a few travel books that were pilgrimages but still I did not realize the extent of this until I heard Couineau tapes and his many of others who took the pilgrimages through the centuries and wrote about them.. SO…I went on an Amazon hunt and a new world opened up. My first order and recommended reading besides Cousineaus book first are: Pilgrimages (Adventures of the spirit ) It is a collection of personal adventures while on pilgrimage and A Womans path edited by Lucy McCauley; herself a pilgrim.
