"Where the wave of moonlight glosses
The dim grey sands with light,
Far off by furthest Rosses
We foot it all the night,
Weaving olden dances,
Mingling hands and mingling glances
Till the moon has taken flight;
To and fro we leap
And chase the frothy bubbles,
While the world is full of troubles
And is anxious in its sleep.

Come away, O human child!
To the waters of the wild
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand."

~W.B Yeats

Oh dear...

I think I have caught jacqui's runny nose and hypo-ness

Have been running around my house all day doing 4 paintings at once and wiping nose in between times and Not cleaning anything.....

Have also done ALL dirty washing and have a linen cupboard FULL of DRY towels that are not mouldy yet........

In between painting, wiping runny nose and washing hysterically I have been leaving evil comments on everyones blogs and have decided that you are all BORING except for Jacqui who is as mad as me on account of I caught it from her...

I have never typed this fast in my life (with two fingers and one thumb as is my style)

Elf and maryjen are TOOOOO boring and will not play with us....poo to them *I say very loudly whilst doing handstands*


Darlin' just caught me dancing around the kitchen singing 'every simpson dance now' whilst doing the jingle jangle scarecrow movements for Hairball son who has also caught hypo bug but was lucky enough to be sitting down at the time.....most embarrassing

Kayla is ecstatic that she has a diet partner and keeps asking me to EXERCISE with her...stupid if!

I am now going to eat my dinner, paint some more, have a bath and collapse into bed eventually, probably foaming at the mouth....or nose, whatever

Gosh, I wish someone would clean out the kitty litter, it really stinks in here............phew!

Have also decided that I am no longer called 'someone'.

Have a good sleep people!

someone feed that bloody cat......

Lilith is a strange cat.
She likes to drink out of interesting bowls, bit like we do when we fuss about our mugs and teacups etc.
She doesn,t like to eat fish......

I do not know why blogger is underlining my words for me but I want it to stop NOW

Be very careful

I am watching you...........

The next door neighbours have just turned their radio on VERY LOUD....

that should get darlin' out of bed quick smart

oh dear...

Does anyone have an exercise bike or walking machine they want to sell??

The sun is out, I must go wash things immediately before it changes its mind
and spits water on me..........

Back later....

bet you all wish you were painting nice things right now!

*sticks tongue out and laughs maniacally*

Thats okay, I will stay home and paint anyway.....

Reason, Season, Lifetime

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.

When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet
a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.

They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.

The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done.

They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.

Believe it, it is real.

But only for a season.!

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.

Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.

where my head is at...part two

Tonight I am tired, so very tired indeed.

I am only writing this to keep me awake for one more half hour till I pick Kayla up from HP shift....

Then my head will be at the pillow and hopefully not snoring loudly, definately sleeping, not traveling the multiverse as I am pretty damn sure it was last night for me to have woken up so veeerrryyyyy tired after 7 hours so-called sleep

Good bloody night!

I did go to school today...eventually.... and I now have an agent.... (heh)....her name is Agent Mary Elf Macperson and she is relentless! But that is a story for another day........

oh yes, fruit and nuts ARE good for you right??

even if they are wrapped in chocolate????

most excellent!

I shall most likely be purchasing a dryer from the Captain soon...excellent dry captains for sure....just must convince darlin' that 'not mouldy' towels will make up for rise in power bill

Am contemplating forgiveness and its vital importance in the way of all things concerned with spiritual is essential in fact....for others and most importantly for oneself

Ummmm, thats about as cerebral as it gets for me today folks.....


back to painting

Tuesday, April 24, 2007

That its raining?

Well, it is, lots

Did you also know that if you don't wash your car for long enough it will eventually pee down and wash it for you......excellent

Did you know that Rubysmum is getting hitched??

I did!

Or that Hairball sons have no bloody idea about real life and get a shock when they have to go and do 3 week courses to get a job at Coles??

Or that I am mighty mighty sick of being at home all day with people and not being able to find time to get in the 'space' (oh for my own space whats not in the middle of the house) to paint or whatever else I feel like doing.........aaaaarggghhh. In fact, it makes me want to punch something very hard or else go to bed..............hmmm

That its still raining and I have wet things and no drier.


whinge bitch grumble etc etc etc


Its Tahni's birthday today and she's in bloody Sydney with the Catholics!!!

Monday, April 23, 2007

and thats that then isn't it.....

Well, I have survived the day

It wasn't all that bad once I sorted out the stupid school office lady and got her to comprehend what it actually was that I needed her to write in a 5 sentence letter, I only had to tell her 7 times and then dictate type and print it off myself.......then wait an hour or so for the principle to come back from wherever principles go to on pupil free days to sign it...

Was in centrelink by 11...

and out by 12.15!!

Pleasant suprise yes, as was the friendly helpful service by two seperate ladies......score!

Hairball has an appointment at 10 am tommorrow with the job network place and cannot quite comprehend why he has to look for work and prove it so mummy can take all his money and feed him with it......

tough titties say I....

Have taken smallest but not quietest child for a fringe cut and now have a young cleopatra on my hands......I know she goes to school and puts mascara and eyeliner on and then takes it off before coming home...she knows I know...and yet it still happens this way. This child has not yet reached 'monthlies' and has nipples but not breasts.....this will change shortly however, I can tell......maybe I will buy her a mascara with her first packet of pads.

Such a different girl from my other two is boys Lowes shorts and footy jumpers for this little chicky I tell you....damn

Hmmmm, what else cooking dinner as we speak and have just dropped working child at HP for her 2nd shift...she says its very boring and that she wants to go and live with tahni where she gets paid $14 an hour for having fun and only has to bow to Jesus if she wants to!!

I tried to charge her $5.60 for her lunch this morning and she laughed at me!!

I was serious........

hee hee

Life is amusing in my mind at times

I am tired and feel a bit crookish, my nose head hole is infected from the 9 ct dragonfly stud and I boiled it and all! Have put the old one back in and will leave it for a while to heal. My sister says she can't wear 9 ct in hers as it gets infected and has to wear 18 ct.....better start saving then.

Have eaten too much today, not walked anywhere except, well, nowhere really and am not being a good goal orientated mary today....

Well, it IS raining......


Today I am off to centrelink to sort out my errant hairball son

I am not impressed and should be back around lunchtime on friday


Sunday, April 22, 2007


Oh dear......

I have weighed myself today (big mistake) and am definately more than I want to be

I want to lose 10 kilos I think, at least 7, before my jeans all split up the backside or I must go buy some more and waste perfectly good jeans that I already own

I shall walk with my kayla yes?


Does that mean no more chocolate?

10 things you may not know about me

  2. My mother had me when she was just 17 years old, and 3 of us before she was 20
  3. I had my first child at age 18, just....I did wait 5 years before having another
  4. Its been 5 and a half years since I had a drink or other any bad thing in my body
  5. Sometimes I would really like one but I choose not to go there
  6. I would like to travel this country one day
  7. I eat far too much crap
  8. Lots of the time I feel quite ignorant and inferior but get on with it anyway
  9. I spent most of my life trusting no one and nothing, now I trust because if I don't take a risk then how do I grow?
  10. I like who I am most days

Friday, April 20, 2007

whispered conversations

I started a new book!

I only stayed up till 1 am reading this time......

oh dear

This all very well and good if you get to sleep in a bit......

must stop before Monday!

There are good and true things happening within our 'circle' just now

Strong and healthy things and women who decide to be who they are

Speaking their truth regardless of initial discomfort and discovering the empowerment that results from this and the healing that follows


I am proud to be a mary

I have found, over the past few years , that to speak MY truth is the very hardest thing to do. It takes much guts and practise and thought and ALWAYS feels better than fearful silence

In fact, speaking is so important, such an integral part of healing that I will talk about it some more.

I believe that things that are not spoken, remain, festering inside of us, until they turn into huge and dark energies that lie just underneath our skin. By speaking of them, even if we don't know where to start, we release them, by telling another soul we take the power away from this darkness, by sharing our pain we lessen it. Our words, however weak or puny or dirty or shameful they may seem to us, allow movement.



Often, just the very act of speaking something out loud to another person allows us to gain clarity and insight and to put our problem into its proper perspective and that was all we needed.

By listening to someone, just listening, we can allow them this insight. Other times we may need a helping hand to show us a better path to follow right now or to give us a different veiwpoint than the one that is currently blinding us.

This is how it works.

I know this to be true.

By bottling things up we infect ourselves with secrets and toxic shame and give darkness a handhold into our bodies.

We must speak, no matter what. We must not hold onto our 'stuff' and allow it to fester.

It is okay to be confused, it is okay to be lost and most of all it is okay to be wrong. In fact, often it is a relief to be wrong.

If we do not speak it, it cannot be healed.

Funny that.

If you don't know, say so

If you do know, say so

If it hurts, tell someone

If someone tells you, listen

This is a gift we can give each other

Healing happens here

Why Parents Drink...............

A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in

sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers,


dialled the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a


"Is your daddy home?" he asked.

"Yes," whispered the small voice.

"May I talk with him?"

The child whispered, "No."

! Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is
Mommy there?"


"May I talk with her?"

Again the small voice whispered, "No."

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss

asked, "Is anybody else there?"

"Yes," whispered the child, "a policeman."

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss

asked, "May I speak with the policeman?"

"No, he's busy", whispered the child.

"Busy doing what?"

"Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman," came the whispered


Growing more worried as he heard what sounded lik! e a helicopter
the earpiece on the phone, the boss as ked, "What is that noise?"

"A helicopter" answered the whispering voice.

"What is going on there?" demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.

Again, whispering, the child answered, "The search team just landed

Alarmed, concerned, and a little frustrated the boss asked,

"What are they searching for?"

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle:

good stuff..

Another Transmission from The Reconnections

"The Falling Apart World"

My Dear Friends,

"With regard to your daily walk and experience.. is
important to remember that "falling apart" is the main process that is
underway on Planet Earth at this time. Transforming Beings all over
the planet are doing it, in order to rid themselves of the effort and
focus that has glued their attention into the world system (The
"Matrix" if you will......) and has kept them from dancing and playing
in spirit......with the soul of a Magical Child.

The three areas of primary disruption at this time are:
health, finance, and relationships. Most people are deeply involved in
holding together one or more of these areas. And if your CORE SELF is
ready to reconnect with everything and will be
busy about the tasking of SHAKING YOURSELF LOOSE from the "death grip"
you hold (or that holds you) way of obligations to family,
bills, reputation, social obligations, and such.

There is no one to "blame" for your situation, as it appears
before you now. It is simply the result of your own inner resolve to
LET GO......which is often quite difficult under favorable situations.
So you attract in uncomfortable situations which make things HEAT UP
inside......until finally your HUMAN WILL becomes ready to focus
itself more into NOW.......and discover the DEPTH OF DESIRE which
lurks underneath all these obligations.

Once the "responsible" and/or "addicted" will is shaken loose,
it is important to spend time connecting to your ORGANIC
CENTER.........body and a guide for your next moves
here on the Earth. Use your body like a Geiger Counter, as you search
for the "radiance" that will inspire your future. Move towards that
which energizes and excites you, whether or not there seems to be any
financial reward or prestige in it. Move away from those things which
deaden you, even if it means breaking long-standing ties with
individuals you care about. You don't have to eliminate them from your
life. Simply find new formats for relating to them so the "deadness"
is removed, and revitalization is returned to the relationship. It is
hard to make a case for being in a place or a relationship if there is
no energy moving there.

In the beginning stages, you will need to grant yourself
considerable time which you can sort out the feelings
and impulses in your Geiger Counter. Make no permanent commitments
until you allow for this. Otherwise, your sense of perspective may
still be somewhat distorted by the Old Paradigm thinking. You must be
brutally honest with yourself about the difference between what is
really important to you and what has been installed there, as social
responsibility. Once you've given yourself this time
may be surprised with the results. Some energies will establish
themselves as TRULY IMPORTANT........even if you have previously
judged them as "weights" around your neck.....while others that once
seemed so bright...... suddenly grow dim, as the REBELLION ENERGY of
WILLFUL LIVING is released.

As the process continues, and everyone begins to LET
GO.......Love proves itself to be the easiest, most merciful energy of
all. It demands TRUTH and AUTHENTICITY........which is ever and only
present in the NOW MOMENT. All truth lasts but for a moment, you
know........ and then it is replaced by NEW truth. And he or she who
tries to hang onto yesterday's truth, like yesterday's manna.....will
find themselves with a bellyache......because it has grown stale
and/or rotten in their hands.

Let the gifts of your heart lead the way, and all other, wealth, love, and affection.......will assume
their proper perspective. Don't be afraid to work with your hands, or
move yourself the call to economic opportunity is
one way that prophets and healers are directed to their next spiritual

We are available to you 24 hours a day. Simply reach for us
and we will be there, in whatever form you require. Be patient, be
truly HONEST with yourself in all things. What others think of you is
simply a projection of their own process into your living space. If
you run your life to maintain their favor, you will always find
yourself living in circles. You are not THEM, and they are not
YOU..........not in the 3D space anyway. Beyond that, all are ONE. But is important to be 100% the reflections
you bring each other are original and authentic, rather than plastic
concoctions of your "socialized" self.

There are many bumps and pitfalls up ahead! But you are
growing wings, and will be able to fly long before you fall seriously
into them.

Yesterday we had many surprise visitors......

I don't like surprise visitors, oh no no

some of them even had small children

Its usually people who come because they don't actually get invited you know

Anyway, it was okay...........

We survived......

One visitor we had this week did not get invited in

although she sat at the front door for ages....

we moved her on quick smart to a new home for sure

Here is a pic....

You see why we didn't let her in

even though she did bring her own food

oh dear

Where the hell is everybody?

You are capable of true greatness.

This is not a question, a wish or a hope.

This is a simple fact.

You are capable of true greatness.

True greatness is not something you hold up to a standard you or society have set and ask over and over, "Is this it?"

True greatness is a flame inside, a truth that is you.

And as you go through life, this truth can become buried.

You may need to unravel the consequences of some past actions to clear a space for it.

Or you may need to balance the time and effort required to carry your burdens with the time and effort required to excavate your shining wonder.

But it is there.

It is real.

It is true and it shines.

Just thought I'd share this......

I'm very busy being truly great but finding it hard to be fully present at the same time....


Thursday, April 05, 2007

oh gawd....

Well, there you go......
me with straight hair
HA HA HA as darlin' says

Part of a painting that doesn't photograph very well

Well, such as it is, this is all I have done in 3 weeks.

Buggered if I know

I need my own space and lots of money I have decided

Do you hear that universe????

yesterdays poetry.....sort of

Today I am trying to walk in my goddess

And I am raging

Is this why I avoid myself?

I stand back and observe the raging torrent of me and I see she is magnificent.

I try to pick apart the tangled threads of my relationships and I find

that my own expectations lead me to despair.

Inside of me, my goddess weeps.

She wails for the injustices carried out upon the children.

The child...

She cries for me..

Inside of me, my goddess dances

She dances for the sheer hell of it

And she laughs like a loon

She dances until her legs will dance no more

and falling to the ground

she sleeps

The sleep of innocence where no darkness that is not invited comes

Inside of me, my goddess glories in the sensual.

Touching, feeling, tasting whatever life should choose to bring her way

She does not hide in case it feels too good

She revels in the sweetness of my core

Inside of me, my goddess knows that I am not a problem waiting to be fixed

A role that needs to be played

She does not need to see herself reflected in the eyes of another

to know that she is real

I am her

She is me

Inside of me she dances

And she waits

She waits for me

monday madness

Today I am supposed to be walking in my goddess.

I am trying but my goddess is pissed off.....

I am observing my rage and I find it is magnificent


if you close your eyes
and look beyond
past this opaque skin
behind my eyes
my beauty shines
flames lit from within

and I

am dancing through the shadows
