Poll Wonder Number 273...

I wonder if Alffe (who dislikes polls) noticed I used the poll icon ... just cuz ... ha ha... no poll!

I wonder if any of you are watching the Oprah Lifeclass series?... I have a friend who comes over every Monday night to watch them with me. The guest she has have been blow-me-away fabulous! Oprah's Masterclass is fabulous, too. I think you can watch most of this on the internet (I hope my NZ and Aussie friends can see it, too?)
My spiritual journey continues!

I wonder if anyone has talked with David? When he said good-bye to us here at NT, I believe he meant he was going to give up all internet social networking. He hasn't posted on FaceBook since March... the selfish me misses him and at the same time, I know he did what is right for him and I wish him well!

I wonder how bad things are going to get in this "recession"... and at the same time, wonder at how amazing it is to see people going back to the grass-roots of providing for themselves.

I wonder at the courage it takes to change oneself.

I wonder at how grateful I am for epsom salts! I have a job which requires me to be on my feet for about 5 hours - (I've been wearing a step-counter and average about 1000 steps an hour!!! yayaya!!!).

I wonder how you are all doing today?

I wonder so many things...for starters why do we have two Wonder Threads #273... Polls! lol

I wonder how happy I was to see my grass seed sprout! Lara, you were right.

I wonder what my dear friend learned at the oncologist today...such a hard decision she has to make..

I wonder if she listened to Diane Rehmn show yesterday...her guest chose not to have chemo for her advanced breast cancer, a stage four, She was into the quality of her remaining time on this earth. http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/20...sive-treatment

I wonder what those little Butterflies/Moths are darting around the lilac bushes....top of their wings look like a monarch....

I wonder what a revelation is was to me not to be able to comprehend a book I ordered and wanted to read "When I was a Child I read Books".
I heard the author interviewed on NPR and loved what she had to say so I ordered her book. Try though I may, I cannot understand it.

I wonder that I am unable to handle surprises, stress....that doesn't make me a bad person...just a very suspicious one.

Hugs for the room

I was wondering about our Goofy-sis and how she's doing right now... so I came back here to wonder about that!

and Alffe, I wonder why surprises/stress are suspicious? and wanna tell you its okay to not be able to handle it... its perfectly understandable!

Addy...thank you. You are such a dear friend!! It is just so scary not to be comfortable with our minds and thoughts...I am still "me" but who is that??
Am reading a wonderful book (one that I can understand and identify with)
Speaking our Minds by Lisa Snyder. What it's like to have Alzheimer's

It is so "right on".

Oh Alffe.. I wonder who I am all the time... and like you....

I'm just plain old me... take me as I am... I is as I is!

I wonder where what that Doody is up to today... likely out there straightening up the willow tree! (<<<< that's ME when I watched that old movie "Twister" the other night! - I know its got some real phony parts... but man, those winds are real! )

I wonder if Lara is enjoying today (our tomorrow!)... and if she got out in her garden today?

I wonder if I can say that I am stressed today, also. And that my father-in-law, the BEST dad of 7 kids, 17 grandkids and 5 greatgrandkids, passed away early this morning. Our world will not be the same and his house seems so empty without him there....it's so not real yet.

I wonder why I wonder about "a body" when it's just a carrier of a soul. Yes, it was as easy to kiss him in life as in death, and, even though I knew it was only a body and he was not there anymore, I didn't want to leave him in the hospital alone....he'd just been razzing me yesterday! How crazy is that?

I wonder how my hubby, brothers, and sister will do with this....we're a very close family and when hubby asked dad at Christmas what he wanted for Christmas all he wanted was for his family to always get along. I guess he saw more than we thought..LOL. Wise man.

I wonder why I always feel so empty when someone I love so much leaves.....perhaps that's the reason I never used to let myself love....but I can't help it anymore; I just have too much love that it overflows whether I want it to or not. I do wish that I could stop crying, though .....just too emotional, I guess.

I wonder that my family on here doesn't care if I cry.....because you don't have to see what a mess I've become...I'm not a 'pretty crier!'

I wonder if I can say that you, hippiechick, may not be a "pretty crier" but you have a beautiful soul...I'm sorry for your loss..he sounds like a terrific man..

I wonder if it will get up to 70 today and I can plant those bulbs..they are starting to sprout in the bag and want some dirt I think...

I wonder how grateful I am to the author Lisa Snyder, for the book I am into..Speaking Our Minds. She wrote, "We were all going along quite productively in our lives until we were confronted by memory loss, confusion, nervousness, loneliness, and isolation. It's as if you're reading a book and someone has torn the pages out." I couldn't have said it any better myself.

I wonder if i can tell Addy thank you..... {{{{HUGS}}}} i dont know how i'm doing.... My psychologist sends me a text message almost every day and makes me check in with him. sigh.....

i see him again tomorrow.... last thursday we hit the root of my problem.... what i've kept secret for years and years and nobody not even my husband knows.

I'm in a hate life mode right now i'm going through the motions. going to work but not actually there, cooking meals for my husband but not remembering it, went to choir practice last night and couldn't remember what we did this morning...

yeah, a major life sucks mode right now.... guess this isn't the right place to unload.... in a wonder thread, but oh well....

Oh gosh...

I wonder if I can say to Hippiechick that's I'm so very sorry to hear of the passing of your Father-in-law. Words and emoticons on a screen as I type do not ever seem to convey my true response. I understand your feeling of not wanting to leave him alone even after death. That is absolutely not 'crazy' at all. You musn't think it crazy. It's natural. It's good you're a close family. That will surely help you all through this grief together.

I wonder if I can tell Hippiechick that I used to have trouble getting close to others as well. Still do mostly but not like when I was young. That was because of horrible loss especially of my mother when I was very tiny child and father when I was a teen. Then it just sort of kept going. Loss after loss. I'm also glad that these days I feel, well I actually feel a little ambivalent in truth, but mostly I feel a lot of love flows from me as you describe and the tears... well, the tears are good. They are an outlet. Not sure any of us look pretty when we cry. I don't believe we're meant to look pretty when we cry. It's never about how we look. It's about what's inside.

I wonder about Lonely1...

I wonder about those headaches too. You should get that sorted with a doctor. Maybe it's stress, depression, lack of sleep, neighbours making too much noise. Long term headaches need investigatiion.

I wonder if I was never meant to live in this world, every aspect of my life works in exactly the opposite direction as it should.
I think every person who has ever lived has thought that. It's how our species thinks. We all think that way from time to time. Trick is to not think that way ALL the time. That's the hard work. <sigh>

I wonder if Lonely ever gets in the SUN? Might be difficult there. Sunlight on the body is a necessity. If no sunlight then look into taking supplements. The less sun you get the more SAD you will get.

Hang on... and maybe get some Vitamin D and some Vitamin B complex into yourself for a start. None of that will take away pain and pain of loss, but it may allow you to start dealing with day to day living on a totally different plane.

Not your era, but it was a good one.

(just close your eyes and listen)

Here comes the Sun
