Universal Love

As I've mentioned before, I awaken to find an e-mail from The Universe every day. Well, Monday through Friday, and let's face it, that's when I most need a little inspiration. As The Universe very well knows. (Because it's The Universe.)

As a service to all my other Universals (that would be a cool official name of people living in the Universe, yes? You heard it here first!), I thought I'd share a little more of the love that I have received, as it is applicable to all people, in all places. If you'd like to set up your own e-mail relationship with The Universe (isn't that how all things start these days?), just go here.

Below I've changed my name to "Reader", so as to make it reach you a little more directly. :) Enjoy!

Message from The Universe #1:

One of the trickiest things about life, Reader, is that, at times, it happens so slowly.

Yet... if... it... happened... any... faster... you'd... already... have... everything... you... ever... wanted... without... learning... to... enjoy... the... ride.

Beep, beep...
The Universe

Message from The Universe #2:

Last night, Reader, I was dreaming of you, again.

You were radiant, confident, and light beamed in every direction from the core of your being. Music followed you, angels serenaded you, and everyone was elevated by your presence. Wisdom shown from your eyes. Kindness emanated from your touch. And your power was simply awesome.

You looked, well... pretty much... exactly as you do right now.

The Universe

Message from The Universe #3:

Reader, do you know why dogs are so quick to wag their tails and cats are so quick to purr? Even the ones that have been lonely, abused, and betrayed?

Because, as is true of all animals, they were instilled with the distant awareness that no matter what the world shows them, they're still deeply loved and needed, that their presence alone has made a difference, and that in just the shake of a leg, seemingly without reason or rhyme, everything can FANTASTICALLY change for the better.

As is true of all people, except sometimes they tend to forget.

The Universe

Message from The Universe #4:

The big ideas almost never seem like big ideas, at first.

So, Reader, be on the lookout for little ideas that seem kind of ho-hum, ain't no 'thang,' let me floss first, kind of ideas.


The Universe

Message from The Universe #5:

Did you know, Reader, that every time you cry there, harps go quiet here, angels stop dancing, and the stars look down in stunned silence?

Which is why we often say, "If Reader ain't happy, ain't no one happy."

You are loved,
The Universe

Alright, that it probably all of the love you can handle for now- more to come in the future! :)

Happy Bunday!

This is my idea of heaven...

Two buns, one human, one love :)

Kissy kissy

Tellin' secrets


Imparting wise words, I'm sure :)

Sometimes RightHand gets a piece of it, too...

Hope you had a relaxing Bunday!

Happy Caturday!

Much like Gatsby...

And Royal...

I'm just having one of those weeks!

Hope you had a better Caturday!

Belated Friday Fotos

You know the drill! Here are my faves from the week (go here to pick yours):

Love the color contrasts in this photo

Wow- what a perspective.
And please don't tell me he dug the whole thing with his hands!

Love those eyes.
This picture makes me sad, though- I think our sports culture has come to value perseverance over respect and kindness to our bodies

Great picture! Are we seeing wingtip vortices?

A good, strange week... 'Til next time!

Happy Bunday!

A little exhausted on this Sunday afternoon, but that's what you get when you are curious about things like polo matches in the summer heat (watching, not playing!).

Miss Daisy is often curious (and cute!) too...

Hope you had an inspiring Bunday!

Happy Caturday!

In keeping with the Casey Anthony "innocence" theme of late, these darlings would like you to know that they're innocent!!

Somebody spilled the jellybeans!
(And that someone is hiding behind the pillow...Royal!)

Latte really was framed- literally and figuratively!
This is the scene of one of the many times we have removed our mattresses to clean-up the bunny mess under the bed (Chewed magazine and rugs- there to protect the carpet and our sanity!)

Hope you have a guilt-free Caturday!

Friday Fotos

Late as usual, but here now!

Here are my fave photos from the week (go here to pick yours):

This reminds me of swimming at the lake in MN, playing with the current and dam at the river...oh, sweet memories...!

Don't even know how you begin to clean up this kind of mess

A sweet scene

This kills me. Absolutely kills me.

Green green green! Would love to see this on my commute home ;)

The end of an era...

...Yet the beginning of another?

'Til next time!

Should I even pretend like I post these on Fridays anymore? :-p

As always, here are my favorites (go here to find yours):

A dramatic image, such sad devastation

Love that moment where everyone dives in!


So many depressing images again this week, but I guess that's life.

Hope you are having a happier weekend!
