                                                       Painting with Sunlight

Thanks for the Memories sung by Bob Hope is playing in my head?  Where did he come from?  The "old times" of black and white TV also rewind The Lone Ranger and my favorite, Silver, his horse!  I am getting into fast forward/rewind simultaneously.  Memories, pictures, and dreams flood my being, a cleansing and renewal.

Giving Thanks Comes in Many Dimensions. 

What appeared this year?
Let it Go (grow).
Let your clarity define you. 
The future has arrived!
A Time and Space for creative change is Now.

Intuition to Fruition~

"This stuff is way too advanced for me!"
"Keep Going--Keep Positive!"

Recently I imagined the animated movie, Meet the Robinsons.  Their family motto is "Keep Moving Forward."  Then within days the movie appeared on TV!  I needed mind clearing and fun.  Of course I sat and watched!  I had seen the movie several times before. I also thought about Back to the Future and City of Angels movies combining entertainment and awakening.  Every time of viewing these,  I learn something new and different.

*And then Bill Douglas' newsletter arrived with "timely" articles about Fibonacci Number Sequences and the Patterns of Nature, how quantum physics relates to Tai Chi and Qigong practice, and Tai Chi's role in achieving balanced healthy life right down to the cellular level.  I read and re-read the articles.  Bill is founder of World Tai Chi and Qigong Day and World Healing Day.  

My memory raced back to reading Jou, Tsung Hwa's book, The Tao of Taijiquan.  Master Jou was a mathematician and explained Tai Chi both in scientific and mystical terms.  Big Yes!

** I "saw" in my imagination an image of Brian Cox, particle physicist, throwing chemicals into a bonfire creating sparks of colors, "Light Shapes Life!" 

"This is exactly it!"

                                                       Sancat Triple Vision

One evening, my son Rob and I were in the kitchen.  Sancat, our blond boy, was lounging on the cat counter.  It was night and the curtains were still open.  In passing, I glanced out the glass patio door and stopped stock still.  The reflection in the glass revealed Sancat with faint images of himself surrounding his core image! 

"Look at this, it's like seeing planes of light, windows into other dimensions!"

I grabbed my always ready camera and captured the faint image in the glass with no flash.  I had no expectations of  any usable pictures from such a fuzzy unfocused look.  But the photos took!  Just to make sure I penciled a sketch.  The light was reflected (split) back to us in the thermopane glass.  Multiple reflections of Sancat had appeared in the (double) glass.

Visible and Invisible?   High and Low frequencies?  ***Knowledge and Wonder?

The Vertical Rainbow 
Recently friends contributed:  

"I saw a vertical rainbow!  It was very wide and very bright!"  I remembered when Rob and I saw a table shaped rainbow with pink in it....

"I saw a reflection in the sky as I was driving, it was about 4 PM on Nov 8.  There was an image of a full moon in the daytime sky?  It was the time of month for the crescent moon.  I had already seen the crescent moon in the night sky.  To the right of the daytime moon image, and a bit lower than the moon, I saw a yellow light that looked like the sun.  I saw this image three times as the clouds parted!  I was puzzled.   An elder suggested, 'This image means change.' "

****  "I honor change and welcome it," Debra Basham

NOW!  I celebrate the practice of Tai Chi and Qigong worldwide as total living, breathing experiences of the life force (qi) cultivating within us and radiating outward to others.  I give thanks for the continuous and unfolding journeys of ourselves, the paths we walk.  I am thankful this year for an opening in our visual and sensory perceptions of ourselves and others.  I feel deep gratitude for Earth, her Creatures, and All Life here and beyond.  I am filled with abundance from family, friends, physical and non-physical teachers, and readers of Out of the Blue! 

"I honor my sacred journey, I honor the sacred journey of others," Debra Basham

"We are all one in our human story,"  William K. Emery, M.D.

"Today I am a different person than I was yesterday," Mildred

"And the times they are a changin'....,"  Bob Dylan

 In these small hours time falls away~

It's better than everybody thought it would be! 

If I were you, and I am....
