This little girl has been on my shoulder,or my knee,curled up next to my head on my pillow all April. How do they know when you need their love and quiet comfort? April is finally done. Thank you little friend.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your DOG. You are his life, his love, his LEADER. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last BEAT of your heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." -Unknown

If you know me, you know of my devotion to two men of Canadian Media.Those being my boyfriend, George Stromolopolous and Jian Ghomeshi of Q fame. K'Naan held a unheard of 1 hr interview with Jian on April 26th....amazing to say the least. K'Naan is a modern day poet of limitless humanitarian bounds and an intensely talented musician in spite of his long battle with depression. Wave the flag is great but my personal fav is take A Minute.

Father Dave is less than a stellar speaker which allows many of us in his captive audience to drift off in thoughts other than (yesterdays sermon) The need for youth to follow a vocation into the Priesthood.I had this daydream of wondering... what if we suddenly looked like we did 40 years ago. Would love to see the 80 year old biker dude and his biker mama in leathers and bandannas. Their colorful and faded tats and long grey ponytails give me inklings of a secret exciting youth.The very crooked and arthritic cowboy who sits in front of me, wearing very new jeans and western shirt snapped up tight under his chin with a horse head Bollo tie can no longer kneel. His soiled black cowboy hat and boots scuffed from spurs have a tale to tell. Always had dreams...read fantasies (wink, wink)about tall, ripped, blond cowboys..hmmm apparently still do. I do so love my weekly church moments and the peace it brings me.........

Where or where does art hide? I am thinking under the stack of todo filing, in the less is more pile, included in the 4 bags of garbage or under the shoes....18 pairs to be exact....shoes belonging to the OD. Today, I begin the job of finding Art, then making art should follow....right?

Got the memo that it is still April so in keeping with the whole low profile vib, I have occupied myself with work close to home.....income tax, gardening, friends in for dinner etc. The Fax has not groaned for 2 days and ER phone calls have dwindled to a scant 3 calls on Monday. I am starting to think THE DREAM might become a reality. Only 10 days to go and then off to Edmonton for a month to assist with the big move, Birthdays, Graduation and a possible wedding.......10 days.....just 10 days.

GOOD NEWS...... who would have guessed that this day would find us dancing, crying, ...in relief and joy at our good fortune/blessing that has occurred on this day of all days, April 15th. We are evolved enough to know that this day is not in our hands and because our experiences over the years we tend to be less than postive thinkers throughout the month of April. Today it all changed. Today a long dreamed dream has come true and we in the family are very aware a supernatural power had to be involved. I believe it was our special angel, Coco.
But it is not because they are spirits that they are angels. They become angels when they are sent. ~Augustine

As usual April is again a yearly challenge and has been since the end of the gift known as Coco. We have weathered since her death a yearly April test of human spirit. One year after, a near fatal motorcycle accident, which is now the explanation why Organic dude is so weird. The next year OD had a heart attack, the next ER gallbladder surgery, next, Nana's brush with mortality and so on and so on. This year can easily go either way and we must live every second of the rotten month in order to learn the outcome. We, the family have become somewhat reluctant to place bets on April and we are a family with off track betting accounts. Exhausted, cranky, each of us with some pending medical crises looming, home front changes a certainty, and financial obligations building like a Sonomie are drawn closer together than at any other time of the year.It's such a delicate balance which way we will be pulled and we are all very afraid. We comfort each other with treats in the mail and daily calls that everything will be OK. Maybe that's multiple daily calls and I eat most of the treats.................

Speculation regarding the mental stability of Golfers has been rampant for years. April 8th, 2010 proved the hypothesis that Golfers play their game in a state of delusion thusly spending this portion of their life in a state of dementia, unaware of reality or the world around them.

But not in a Jesse James, Tiger Woods way. Based upon my belief that many people travel through their day without once feeling a connection with another living person, I will reach out to more than my usual circle of people either with a friendly word, touch, whatever and more then reach out I plan to seek out....SO......if you start to read or hear about an aggressively friendly woman lurking in malls and car washes it possibly could be me.
