It’s my birthday today, and we’re celebrating by going add-free on Spirit Train Chronicles!
I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now, and the pop-ups on my phone this morning pulled the trigger.
I will probably add a “donate” button soon, and if I can find the time to sort thru how to run affiliate ads, I may go for that as well. I think the cost of maintaining STC is now about $64/year, which ain’t bad, but if anyone cares to pitch in a dollar or two, it’ll be greatly appreciated and totally unexpected. 😀
We’ll deal with those details later. For now, enjoy cleaner browsing!
With lots of love and wishes for a super 2019 going out to all,
Happy New Year and Happy much belated Birthday to you Leslee! Let’s just say that I’ve been living in a cave, for the past few years, lol. Slowly connecting back to social media. Hello to everyone on STC,may 2019 bring a fresh new energy. All da Best!
Lovely thread here 😀
Very true, very true.
Ya know Ben, I am totally sorry, and apologize. But, I could never find what it is so fascinating, or great about, or even find any use for Poetry, or Rhyming words in a small sentence, which I can do. Again, this old Ogre apologizes, Ben.
I feel similar about sports.
Wow Ben, I too feel the same about sports, we do have something in common. I feel that sports is just another way to control the masses, such as Rome have done starting with the Gladiator’s of old.
Don’t “we” all “have” something in common? 😉
Yes, good one Ben even tho it may be hard to find @ times.
Worth the effort though, non?
A super 2019 indeed – welcome back sister!
Thank you. And here’s a birthday poem for you. It’s second-hand but no less sincere. ❤
POEM ON HIS* BIRTHDAY
This morning I reflected
That today I am the same age as you were
When I was as much younger than you
As you are now older than me
This just goes to show
The kind of thing that happens
When you start calibrating
What you should be celebrating
So what’s to celebrate
What of worth then
Gathered from the years?
That it’s not what you see
It’s the way that you view it
It’s not what you do
It’s the why that you do it
It’s not what you’ve lived
But the way you lived through it
And that’s what really counts
That you should neither judge nor aggravate
The turmoil that surrounds you
And everything is already perfect
Whether you like it or not
Why rush around in pursuit of pleasure
When you could simply enjoy
The suffering you already have?
That there’s more to the I
Than meets death
And even if you’re dead important
You’re not important dead
Of course I forget most of this stuff
For pretty much of the time
But I wanted to make my birthday
A day to remember
*Or her, s the case may be. 😉
I love this Ben! I’m sure you’ll be able to tell me there’s a poetry form that makes the head spin… until it stops and rests. That’s what I’m doing today 😀
I’m not sure there’s a poetry form guaranteed to do that but you might check out carlarenee45’s comment here:
A lovely sister just shared this song with me…so beautiful that I cannot wait to share…….with the precious ones that we have made a promise.
This was first recommended by this precious one…
Yes, dear Leslee, have you ever tried to recall how much you have already achieved??? You not only established this, but also found the ones. Not only so, you have been helping the lonely, lost, even confused ones who have been so desperately looking for more pieces of life puzzles to make out who we are and what’s the life purpose is, even what’s going on in both the individual but also collective levels. No exageration to say you even saved lots of lives who might have not only once wanted to give up all for just getting out of these very pains in this reality. You help the habitually self-doubting even loathing one(s) to turn to make more sense of this reality and to awake more to connect with the higher realms, for downloading even materializing the divine paradigm in this reality. You help the lost ones to find the spiritual family, TRIBE, to know more about the oneselves, to share the experiences and knowledge to cast the culture, comforting, beautiful and spiritual culture !!! May we all be more and more healed and FLOURISH !!!
Feilla, the intention behind this is very sweet, and I really appreciate the lengths you go to express gratitude… The dilemma for me is, I cannot see how I can possibly take credit for what you describe! I do hope my (our?) ramblings help other understand that there’s no harm in expressing ourselves and/or having perceptions that are “out of the norm”… Otherwise we’re all making really grand fools of ourselves! However, I post and share for as many selfish reasons as otherwise. It’s sort of a survival tactic for me. I know this is a tough place for many of us to hang out (on earth among humans), and I figure we do better if we find one another and have a safe place to hang out 😀
Love you dear sister!
Happy Birthday Leslee, may the lucky stars be on your side this year. Love Lisa
Thank you love!
Aye Guy’s, Congrat’s are in order! Whoo Hoo & TY all.
