-ish News

Big-ish News

I have finally reorganized my living space.  There are hardly words to describe the feeling it gives me - like I can take a fuller breath. Reorganizing may seem minor but it's just so not.  I've sorted through personal items.  I've packed old memories with love.  And some I let go with even more love.  I've created space for the gift of the present.  I'm ready to invite and welcome new energy. [to be more clear dear universe, I'm referring to new positive energy. thanks]  I'm looking forward to placing orders for J-Land art and original creations. 

Bigger-ish News

I've been hired to write/sell music for a voiceover artist's demo reel on her website.  Huh? What?  It's like music you hear in the background of a commercial.  I'm giving it a shot.  We'll see what we come up with.  I'm getting together with a music friend at his studio.  We're going to work on it together.  This could be fun!  I'll let you know how it goes.

Biggest-ish News

I left a message for the ENT Surgeon regarding the parotid tumor behind my ear.  ::deep breath::  She should call me tomorrow - especially when she reads my words, "...ready to talk about scheduling surgery."

Please, I already expect her to smart-off about 'told you so.'  I don't want to hear that from anyone.  I still believe in natural healing.  If my insurance would've covered the homeopathic medication and all that goes with it, things would be different today.  But I'm stuck/blessed with an HMO.

I'm obviously more ready today than I was a year ago.  Or two years ago, for that matter.  It's my process.  I guess I figure, I've faced my biggest demons in the past years and I'm still alive - even more alive today.  If this is the way to go, then let's do it and get it over with so I can continue healing even more.

Afterthought :  Oooh, you know what would be really cool?  If everyone would send me a picture, I could make a collage for my wall.  Either a picture of you, or something that represents you.  That would be a great addition to my living space.  email:

Good for you on all accounts! I'm proud of you. (((hugs))))

Congrats on the cleanup and I'm glad you're getting that ear tended to--you'll feel so much better when that weight is lifted from your shoulders (well, ear).  

Whenever I have something to do that I dread, I think about all the things that take that length of time to make it seem like a jiffy.  30 minutes?  That's one episode of Will & Grace...or the time it takes to get pizza delivered...or the time it takes to make and set rice krispie treats.  Once you think about it, it's only 30 minutes of discomfort for hours...days... years of peace of mind. :)

Big: I just did 'Chi' entry, too funny!

Bigger: YippY Yahooie!! That's most excellent Free, Congrats!!!

Biggest: I have holistic healing on my side. My Papa wrote a BOOK!!! Never Ever underestimate the power of The Body to heal itself!!! God Speed to tumor free hearing.

Afterthought: On it's way *gulp* Are you sure??? *wink*

Glad to have ya back! barb~

Feng Shui is what you did.....Have a feeling you know that. : )

Glad your having that minor surgery. I agree, however, I wait too. I have a cyst on my eyelid that I'm hoping will go away naturally. That's just me.

Congrats on the job. Sounds like lots of fun.

If you really want a picture. Just steal them from the journals. LOL!


sistercdr said...

I am so proud of you on all three counts.  Rearranging your living environment can have real effects on your life.  The musical opportunity sounds exciting and different, and I'm glad you're getting that tumor taken care of.  

onestrangecat said...

What great news you have to share!  Congrats.

Can I steal your idea of getting people to send pictures of them or of things they love?  What a cool idea.  Let me know.


martinsek5 said...

Well, darling... as you know I am almost a week out of surgery.  It's not fun, and I understand your hesitation.  This tumor I had (in my thyroid) was found a year ago and I just had it removed (it was the size of THREE golf balls they tell me).  You have to do things on your own time.  I wish you luck and if you need support on the surgery issue, I'm here :-)  Pamela

Hello. sent many pics of the waterfalls we seen in a local state park recently. hope you like one of them enough to use one. sorry to hear about the sugery, my thoughts are with you.

Organizing your living space is like a breath of fresh air. I experience it each time I finally get my self organized (and it's when things get chaotic in my living space that I'm finally moved towards organization)!!!  So it's not minor at all!!! Congrats on the job you'll be doing for the voiceover artist...that's very exciting....who knows where it could lead!!!!  I'll be looking forward to hearing updates about this new venture!!!

P.S. I'll be sending a picture...maybe one of the witchy ones in the journal entry I did early today  :)

I hope that your surgery goes well.

krobbie67 said...

You don't know how glad I am that you are taking care of this. :::whew::: Look at it this way, all your friends, me included, will buy you pretty flowers, scratch that, nice green growing plants, for you while you're recooping. Glad to hear the other stuff too. :-) ---Robbie

indigosunmoon said...

I did some putting away of things a few weeks ago too.  I have so much more to do!  One day I'll think...I'm going to put that stuff away, and then when it comes right down to it...I can't!  <sigh>
I wish you the absolute best with the ENT girl.  Get that tumor outta you!  You'll feel much better!
Gonna send you pics...

s0ngbird1962 said...

Wow, lots going on!!  I love reorganizing and purging my personal space, too.  Once I unclutter my living area, I feel more calm on the inside...  Good luck with the voiceover demo reel, betting that you'll do real *reel*?

And surgery...
          Good thoughts going your way.  No *told you so's* over here....
            You've been true to yourself, to your process to get where you are...
                  ~~Only admiration & best wishes...

andreakingme said...

You're in the zone, Freee! The way I see it, you've been spreading good karma around for so long that now YOU'RE due some. I think the background music gig is a great example of that. Waaaaay cool. You be sure to let us know when the site's up and running so we can hear it, okay?

A photo, huh? I've got lots of quirky photos of me and the whisker babies that I could send. (Have I ever mentioned how UNphotogenic I am?)

I'm always good for a laugh!

ryanagi said...

Whoa! Talk about head reeling news. Yay on organizing! I need to do that. Woo hoo on the gig!! What the heck? It sounds like fun. And holy crap! on the surgery. I'd be terrified too and want to try ANY other way besides surgery. I'm sure you will be in good hands. Best wishes with that. :-)  I've been trying to work around some surgery myself. So far, so good.

judithheartsong said...

I am thinking of you! judi

heathyrxmarie said...

I've been gone for a couple days!  I hope that everything works out with the ENT..I read your above entry, so now I know to pray and think great thoughts for you on Dec 10.  Try to relax, it will be ok, I promise:)  And how cool that you re-organized! I love when I feel better about my space!

clarity4today said...

I'm so behind on everything here, Freeee.  ::sigh::  I do want to congratulate you on the new work! That's always great work, since it's something you enjoy.  

I'm so glad that you're feeling the positive energy, too. :-)  We can never have too much of that!

I love your new sidebar, too!

babyshark28 said...

wow. big things are a brewin' with ya.
lots of stuff to ponder, put away, or just plain get ready for.
If you think about it, for a wound to heal, you first have to clean it deeply...which always hurts.  but it's the process of it that brings healing.  and then let time do the rest. :D
love ya.
and I will be thinking of a picture....I have some.
I just don't know what kind I want to send you.

kathlyna22 said...

you really want a pic of lil ol me???
Congrats on getting your surgery in order...I am prcrastinating with something like that...I just don't have the courage to go through with it..

luckyaugustgirl said...

Transitions transitions..... you are just a little busy bee arent you..... Well first of all congrats on the living space... i still havent done mine and ive been wanting to do it for MONTHS. I know the new energy thing..... I'll use that to inspire me when i wanna sleep in on saturdays. Second, congrats on the music deal! Its always good to find a creative way to pour out talent and use it for good somewhere:) and you never know what you might fall into..... maybe a career in music advertising? (of course after your magical diva singing career) Lastly, i read backwards so i knew about your ENT...... you have such a good attitude......... Keep your faith, and you will be up and at 'em, and ready to bring more of your creative spirt to the world...... hey at least it ain't mono right? :) Nice to see you around your journal again......... J-landers miss you you know! Picture to follow later on.....when i start writing again.
Take care of you~ Sarah

Organization can open so many paths to calm.  I've heard that you shouldn't store a lot of things under your bed because even that can create an energy that will keep you from sleeping!  Bizarre.  All I know is that I feel better, more centered, when my space is more sparce and clean.  Woohoo on the new hire!  Can't wait to hear more about this and see some of the work.  :D  As far as the surgery goes, I know this is a big step for you.  But I don't think anyone questions your attempt at trying the natural route.  It's your body - your decisions!  

diannevan said...

First, HOORAY!  I'm so glad you called the ENT!

Second, is it too late for the picture to be sent?  I know JUST the one.
