The Year of the Rabbit

Adrian is a rabbit, but don't tell him that. He believes he's a dragon. Can you blame him? The reason is because he was born in the year 2000. And if you are to look on a Chinese Restaurant place mat he is a dragon, but he was born before the Chinese New Year, so really he is a rabbit. His element is earth.

The Earth element gives these Rabbits a sense of reality and practicality that others don’t illustrate so freely. They are able to give sound advice, which in turn gets them respect and trust from those who solicit their counsel. They take pride in their homes and work diligently to make them a place of security for their loved ones. In the same breath, Earth Rabbits put a great deal of value on material comforts and like to make money.

Yep, I'd say he's a rabbit.

Where have I been? I was looking on my friend's Annette's blog and noticed how all the blogs that she follows are up to date. That is all, but mine. Yea, I've been really busy. This year has gone by faster that any year I've ever experienced! I feel the older I get, the easier it is to understand the metaphysical theory that there is no such thing as time. This moment is the same as the day I was born, as the moment I gave birth and the same as the day my Mom gave birth. I truly understand this more and more, the older I get.
But, where have I been? This year I spent most of the spring on the East Coast, the summer on the West Coast and the Fall back on the East Coast. Traveling is really not the reason I have not blogged much. Nor is time. The real reason is my old lap top. It's seven year old! It takes to much time to post and add and edit pictures and I need constant Internet access. I was stunned at the poor quality and lack of wireless available at highly priced campgrounds this year.
Paul has asked me to go get a computer and reliable Internet service. I have too much web to conquer, but I'll get to it, eventually.
In the mean time: Enjoy life, live it fully and to the utmost, don't look back, smell the roses, practice tolerence and patience, treat your children with respect, and never ever forget, this is the year that Auburn University will be the # 1 Champions in the SEC!!!

A Message from Facebook

A message I received on FaceBook: "I just wanted to tell you (though, I'm SURE I've told you before!) how much I enjoy the pictures and updates of your travels and all of your new learning experiences. I have much admiration for your open-mindedness and courage and willingness to REALLY live your life. More so for your child. I think the life experiences you allow him are the most incredible gifts than you can give him. I have no doubt, that as an adult, he will look back and know how lucky he was to have such a unique life and awesomely cool parents! "
My response:
"As a mom my biggest fear is that my son will be an unhappy adult. I work very hard on treating him with the same respect and compassion I hope to receive from my loved ones. It takes being constantly aware of the words and tones that I use. It does not come my way naturally. But I have great role models in my friends. Your words are most appreciated! Thanks for the love!"

and for that reason I could not have the most fun on this white water rafting adventure. It has to be a Mom thing!

Things that make you go hmm...

FOOD! It is constantly on our minds. There is not a friendship made or a gathering of people in which food does not come into our conversations. And even when we are not talking about it we are thinking about it. I have friends who are Vegans, Raw Vegans, Vegetarians and those who follow the Weston Price Foundation Principles. I like the WPF diet. It makes the most since to me. I get all my nutrition, which many of the diets don't, and I feel that by not eating foods with chemicals I can't pronounce, but eating what my grandmother has eaten to the ripe old age of 95 has got to work.
But this bloggers perspective got me thinking again. Hmm....
