Just stuff, Knowing, And Gratitude

March 24 - If you think your life is about doingness, you do not understand what you are about. Your soul doesn't care what you do for a living--and when your lif is over, neither will you. Your soul cares only about what you're being while you're doing whatever you're doing. Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" page 170
Hi, you bunch of blogging alkies. How the hell are ya tonight?Not a whole lot going on these days. I finally got an appointment for my brain MRI and the carotid ultra-sound. It's only taken 3 weeks to get the appointment. A case of Dr. office and lab pointing fingers at each other about who dropped the ball. I got a finger for 'em. Oooooops. Can't be doing that, but I can let it cross my mind. Un huh un huh, that's the way I like it. Heh heh. I wonder if they will find any almonds, macadamias, walnuts, pecans, or brazil nuts. I know there is a brain up there, at least that's what the previous MRI's have shown. I shall see on Thursday at 2PM.
I saw an incredible movie today starring Nick Cage. He's one of my faves. I will have to add this movie to my list of favorites. The movie is KNOWING. Friday's reviews gave it a 4 star review. I do not think they over rated it at all. It was an edge of seat keeper type of movie. It left me with a feeling of peace.
Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer
  • My Sponsor (coming along)
  • My right eye
  • Being sighted
  • Enjoying life while it's in session
  • Prediction of rain for the next two days(we still need it)
  • Having what I need and accepting it for what I want.
  • All y'all.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah!

You should donate your brain to science.
Just let me know when to send someone over to pick it up.

At first I thought that you might be getting a colonoscopy! I thought..hmm...almonds, walnuts, pecans...wow, what has he been eating. Whew, I'm relieved that it is an MRI. You had me worried there Zane.

Still no rain, for a month now. We need it. Fire warnings are up every day, so much dead wood out there in the 90+ square miles of our estate areas.

But we are all sober today, like MC says, for this 24-hour period.

Glad to see you writing more often, Zane.

Thanks for the movie review. I had seen the previews of "Knowing" and thought it was "my kind of movie", but so often they turn out to be s---!

Now, it's a definite on my list to see.

Hope your MRI shows you still have a brain. Your blogs, which I always like, tell me the results will be positive. Yes, Zane does have a brain! And yes, it's great one at that! -VBG-
