Mary, Mary had a little baby
Mmm, Mmm yeah
Pretty little baby
Mmm, Mmm yeah
Pretty little baby
Glory Be to the new born King
The stars were shining
Shining on the manger
Mmm, Mmm yeah
Shining on the Manger
Mmm, Mmm yeah
Welcoming a Stranger
Glory Be to the new born King
There is reason for Hope in this world
Through our challenges and fears
We are strong and resillient
For we are lifted up and carried
In His hands
He was born to this world
One of sorrow and strife
To give us a reason
To Him, be all Blessing and Honor
For being our guide
To bring us to the glory of Heaven
To give us the meaning of Light
To travel through the darkness
To unite our spirits as one
We shall carry your torch
Your light burning bright
With tears in our eyes,
laughter in our mouths,
songs on our toungs
and Hope in our hearts.
My Christmas wishes:
I wish for you much happiness, laughter, health, growth, success and, most of all, love for the new year to come.
Please share the love that has been given to you.
Hug your children, your parents, your friends.
Smile at a stranger.
Help those who need it, and those who say they don't...for they need it the most.
Laugh at your shortcomings, not at others inabilities.
Love passionately, even for a short moment...it will stay with you forever.
Be all that you can be in the moment that you live in.
Each second is precious.
The beginning verse is from The First Noel on Sarah McLaughlin's Wintersong Album. I just love that song. The picture is of my own ornament that was given to me by Fr. Lou Dolinic many moons ago. It is beautiful and special to my heart.

The Neurologist told me not to worry, that I might have had it for a long time. I might just live to be 99 and never have it grow any larger. I might never have to worry about it again, but we really need to do some more tests to make sure.
Ok, I won't worry.
Famous last words, don't you think?
I was expecting a diagnosis of a pinched nerve, a slipped disk. But a brain tumor? It could be something, it could be nothing. Now isn't that something? I'm only 36, with a lot of unfinshed business, dammit.
I think I need to re-evaluate my life, my priorities. I have always been of the notion that life is too short and that we have to live each day like it was our last and without regret. That is always easier said than done.
Now, I may not have a choice but to do that.
It could be something, it could be nothing.
Could you say a prayer for the "nothing" option? I think that I need all of the help that I can get :)

In this silence I am still
waiting for the cacauphany
of life to disturb
my empty bliss
I am alone in her presence
my angel of solitude
as she spreads her wings
my wind worn soul
Only she knows
I have wanted
for the stillness that she brings
that roars with peace
has become my salvation
she has called me here
from my dreams
of All That Is and
All That Will Be
In this silence
I am still
renewed with hope
"Autumn Angel" is an original Pencil drawing by an artist named Katherine Stockton. This poem is an ode to my recent trip to Vermont, where the silence and stillness could leave you breathless. Lucky for me, it was just what I needed :)

I have been questioning, for some time, if what I am doing is right. I have been asking God and the Angels to give me signs that I can recognize so that I know that I am on the right path. I have been asking them ...Am I wasting my time? Do people really love my stuff? How am I going to make this work? Can do this, and this alone as my livelyhood? Can I still help people by making pieces of jewelry that help to heal their body, mind and soul?
This week, they have given me the signs in the form of powerful recognition. I have had customers leave beautiful comments after receiving their goodies...and then buying some more from me. My friends have always been SO supportive...to them I am forever grateful and definitely beg their forgiveness when I am in a sullen mood when business is not going like I think it should. I am grateful for my signs...for the angelic interventions that help to put my racing heart at ease.
Here are the links to my signs:
Thank you, my angel friends...you are being heard loud and clear!

I have traveled eternity to find you
through the heavens and the stars
Wandering from galaxy to galaxy
only to catch a glimpse of your face
Have you no regard for one
who loves you so?
No endearment to the one
who would traverse heaven and hell
only to be with you
You beguile me with your laughter
as you glide away on a new adventure
far from home in a land unknown
Has this fulfilled your desires?
Take the ribbon from your hair
and unravel the strands of time
that pass between us
for I am weak in your absence
Shall I wander as this lost soul forever?
Look to me, in the night sky
lift your glorious face to me
cast your gaze on the one who loves you
I am here waiting for you
I have searched the heavens
through Andromeda and Pleiades
chatting only with Venus along the way
hoping for some sage advice
Will you wait for me
as I prepare your hearts desire?
Do not run any longer
for you are where you need to be
Do not turn away
for I love you
Stay with me
Poem by Kasia, September 2008
The angel photo is a stock image that I found while looking up the Pleiades. Never forget that there are angles all around us lifting us up to the heavens when the world becomes too much to bear.

Incredible blue flash labradorite. I think that I held these for about an hour straight the other day!

I feel that I have been away for so long. (I mean the "me" part...selfish, indulgent and lazy) Tending to everyone else's needs, whims, desires. Working, working, and then working again.
Our summer is almost past, but I have yet to feel the sun's warmest rays make me want to run for shelter. I am an outcast to the sunshine, a reveler in dreams that have made me want for sandy beaches, salty air and blue skies. How could I have let this time slip away? My mind is cluttered, and I am tired. Wasn't this supposed to be simpler? Ah, as I have come to gather in my ripe old age of "foot on the banana peel to 40", nothing is as simple as it seems...or as we would like it to be.
Even a staycation would be nice...to reclaim the better parts of me.
Anyone ready for a roadtrip?
The picture is that of some beautiful glads that are growing in my backyard...aren't they stunning?

So, here's the question...what is your fantasy life? What would you like your life to be? Would you be rich or have just enough? Famous or a recluse? Travel or buy a farm? What would you be willing to give up to have this life (we all knew that there would be some price to pay for all this, now didin't we?)?
I want to hear from everyone who reads this blog (thank you small and loyal following)!
KasiaBlue's Fantasy Life:
~no alarm clocks...ever!
~I would be a wildly successful jewelry designer/artist/shopper (not neccessarily for clothes...like for real treasures) and be self employed with my friends as happy helpers to go along on my treasure hunts
~I would love to be independently wealthy...which I would have to be in order to make this all happen (Mega millions winner or bankrolled by a super rich sugar daddy (who is also super hot and thinks I'm the bomb) matters not to me)
~I would love to travel EVERYWHERE! My gypsy soul needs it desperately!
~my kids would be educated by the best teachers available and would not have the constraints put on them by society that are just plain stupid (that's another post)
~I would have a 3 month honeymoon in Italy, France and the Mediterranean, waking up in adifferent place whenever we felt like it. (wouldn't that be sssooooo nice?)
~I would love not to have someone else plague me with everyday issues that are so truly inconsequential when it comes down to what is really important in life (i.e. could you move that thing over 1.345 mm to the left ...oh no, no, maybe 2.873 mm to the right...yes that's it)
~I want to be madly in love with someone and they equally in love with me for the rest of my life (aahhhh...the romance)
~I would love to be more spiritual and in tune with nature, the world and beyond
~I would host really cool dinner parties for my friends at one of my many villas or retreats
But most of all...I would want my family to be happy, healthy, smart, funny, giving, compassionate, and loving.
And since it's a fantasy life...I'm not willing to give up anything! But, if it could become a reality I would give up my old ways of thinking, habits and constraints that I have put upon myself.
What is your fantasy?
