2009...

Time...Review your year.
What was the best part?
The best part of my year was the night I camped in the Joshua Tree desert. The sky was amazing, unbelievable with stars, all the stars, natural glorious beauty, so vast, so connected. I did my best to suck in the experience, to etch it in my mind, to store it for later retrieval. I have relived it several times since. I cannot define the visual of the night sky densely laden with stars and planets and spaceness universes. Complete, total peak experience.

What gains did you make?How are you different now then December 2008?

I've done some soul searching and have my list, there may be more Ms. Smart insight yet to be uncovered.

What will you let go of for 2010?What will you add to your 2010 mix?

I'm getting my answers.
May 2010 be your best year ever!!!!!!!!!!

Excellent

I had an excellent day!

My Mom called and loved her birthday gifts - clothes, two new outfits!! My dad said she put on a fashion show, hee hee. Living in the northern part of the mitten known as Michigan with 18 inches of powdery sparkly snow.Work was good, productive, flowed, had a few laughs and a few good surprizes.
I throw a lunch party for my staff at Christmas, we go out, we order in, cater.... this year I invited them to my home (this Thursday.) Today they asked if they could bring guests. :) Excellent! Sounds like a party.Been busy on a freelance creative branding project with some interesting men, and it is really coming together.

My son texted and reported A's in university-level trigonometry and biology!! I am so proud of him and his dedication to his schooling. It is so awesome to see him put in the effort and learning and reaching new knowledge heights. He is rocking the education tip big time!Every Tuesday, I go read for a half an hour to a group of 2nd grade kids. I love it! They are so fun. The kids are somewhere between little kids and knowing what is really going on, they still believe almost anything. They are playful and open-minded.So today I go in and they made me a gift. Each kid drew me a picture and wrote a note to me thanking me for reading to them each week. OMG! I am overwhelmed. It is pure magic. It is sitting next to me. I have not looked through it yet. While I was there, they huddled around me and showed me their page. "See, I made it red, because red is your favorite color". "See, I drew you reading to us." "I'm sorry I was crawling around on the rug and disrupting the class last time." "See this, as he shoved a small red box 3 inches from my face, inside a small tooth lay." I am so touched. The cover is red with colored tissue paper fancy around a big Thank You. This is the most excellent thing ever.My heart is full.

I have an excellent life and it keeps getting better.
I had to share.My cup runneth over, ah!

Amused

Christmas = catalog time
You discover a myriad of catalogs stuffed in your mail box.As I perused the meat catalog, I laughed out loud at the names they christened the combination offers.Let's climb the meat ladder together, shall we?

The General $209.95
The Commander $299.95
Prime Minster $329.95
The Executive $349.95
The Diplomat $499.95If it was up to me to sort and market meat packages, I would value the Prime Minster over the Executive. I would also add King Meat, Omnipotent Meat Ruler, The Caveman, The Carnivore, The President's Council, The Secretary of Meat, Meat Ahoy (surf & turf), Hunk a Meat, Fred Flintstone, Meat Condo, and M'eat' 2 Hibernate.
