Brown-eyed Stare

More Om stuff: Listening Inward Intently

It was a *very* full weekend, with lots of processing, as well as two
good parties on Saturday, and the Swim yesterday. I guess I ought to
have expected the intensity of stuff from how Friday night went (Fire
ceremony). And yes, it is true: beware of what you ask from the
Universe, because It does listen, and It has an ironic (sometimes cruel)
sense of humor. I could use another 1-2 days to recuperate, rest, and
generally digest my weekend. And gods, yes.... another
several-hour chunk of sleep sounds lovely, and might just allow me to
ditch this impending migraine. Perhaps a quiet day of typing binders is
a good thing today. *Hugs* to all.

Pirate Party pics

Linda found the link to the Pirate Party pics, and sent me one (since I
have no internet here at work). The first one was me (with Wolf) trying
*hard* to give a "cocky-wenchy-pirate" look... not a "omigod, I'm drunk"
look. Am not sure how successful I was in that endeavor. *grins*

The second is Linda and Suz's guy - what CUTE pirates! :-) Yarrgh!

The third is me with two cute "little pirates" - one of whom left me with a mark on my neck. *blush*

More Om Stuff, and some ideas

This had some good proactive suggestions in it for overcoming anxiety.
Additionally, I've realized that I need to take a good look at the SSRIs
I take, and how the fluctuation of serotonin levels is contributing to
the migraines I've been getting. I didn't seem to have this problem
when I was taking the 5-HTP and a tiny bit of an SSRI (to prevent the
withrdrawl-head-buzzing that comes from trying to go off it). So maybe
the "selective re-uptake" is causing a problem, rather than trying to
elevate the serotonin levels. Something for me to research, I think.

Anyway, here's the Om stuff; hope it's insightful.
