Your Spirit Remains

Your spirit remains 
though we had to bid you adieu.


Your spirit remains 
I still feel so very close to you. 


Your spirit remains
though your sweet soul left this Earth. 


Your spirit remains 
though your body rests beneath sacred dirt. 


Your spirit remains 
in our hearts, in our tears and in the raindrops aplenty.

Your spirit remains 
through the colors of the rainbows He has sent thee. 


Your spirit remains 
in the blue sky, the misty air and the rolling hills. 


Your spirit remains
as it always will.

my Honey...my warrior

Warrior: Honey


I see a true warrior as someone who strives to be the best they can be at all things.  A warrior is someone who lives to a strict code of honor and lives life to the fullest in full awareness and without fear of the unpredictable nature of life and of the constant presence of death.  Death is not to be seen as something to be feared but only another part of the journey and therefore as with all things it is to be faced with honor. 

May You Rest In Peace 
Sunrise: 10~31~1920
Sunset: 10~11~2012

To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one.  It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives.  Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man.  We make ourselves into one or the other.

my migraine aura

I had an frightening experience yesterday when all of the sudden my right eye had a very bright white light appear in the center part of my vision.

I couldn't see anything clearly.  The light in my eye looked something like this....and it was blinding.  And I was getting dizzy.

All I could do is close my eyes.  Lay my head down.  But I was still freaking out a bit.  I didn't know what was happening.

I have experienced migraine headaches since I was a kid, unfortunately.  They are debilitating.  So painful and cruel.  But never have I experienced a migraine aura.   

A migraine with aura comes with additional symptoms, which often begin about 30 minutes or less before the headache. These early symptoms are called a prodrome.The prodrome or aura may last for five to 20 minutes, or it may continue even after the headache subsides. Symptoms of aura include:
  • blind spots or scotomas
  • blindness in half of your visual field in one or both eyes (hemianopsia)
  • seeing zigzag patterns (fortification)
  • seeing flashing lights (scintilla)
  • feeling prickling skin (paresthesia)
  • weakness
  • seeing things that aren't really there (hallucinations)


This aura in my eye lasted about 10 minutes and then started floating off to the right side of my field of vision.  It then hit me that....maybe this is a migraine coming on and not something wrong with my vision.  I had heard about migraine auras before, but like I said, never experienced one.

Sure enough I google'd it.  Auras happen for about 10 - 30 minutes before a migraine hits.  While I am reading this....hear comes the headache.

I don't think I mentioned, my thyroid is low again too.  Medication for that now.  

What they say is true.  Once you hit 30....it's all down hill from there.  I'm falling apart.

Meli Monday - Red Hot Chili Peppers!!!!

I had a fabulous Saturday night!!!  A very special friend of mine called me up and invited me to go with her to the Red hot Chili Peppers concert with her in San Antonio on Saturday night.  VIP, backstage passes!!!!  I'd be a crazy b*tch to say no....I mean, I am a crazy b*tch but not when it comes to this.

Seats?  Ahhhh-mazing!!!


No zoom lens required....we were just that close!!!!  :)  

Concert?  Ba.nan.as!!!!!! 


A memory to last a lifetime?  No doubt.


Could I watch Mr. Anthony Kiedis dance around on the stage in "his" cool way alllll night?  Yessir!!!! 


Still on a concert high?  But of course...


The only downside...those backstage passes?  They were good.  We got back there after the show.  But they were in the hospitality room before the show.  #majorfail

Buuuuut.....I still had an amazing time!  Mind blowing. 

This is what I looked like before the concert.  


After the concert?  Ummm....I'll pass on the pic.  Just picture sweaty, elated....all with a RHCP shirt on.  Like this....
