Autumn/Spring Equinox

Interconnectedness with everything and being at peace and balanced within

This for me (both the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes (23rd Sept this year)) has always been a pivotal time of the year as the Sun enters Libra.  The day and night are the same and in balance, before the seasons change again from Summer to Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and from Winter to Spring in the Southern Hemisphere.

This Summer/Autumn has been a challenging yet exciting and sometimes sad time for me, there have been many unforseen changes and adjustments, over the last few months. Transiting Pluto in Capricorn squaring Saturn in Libra and now the Sun is joining them (for a little while.) There has been a lot of soul searching , tough decisions and  lots of airy activity going on. While the Sun was still in Virgo, lots of planning, attention to detail and sheer hard work had to be done…and it was!

Love Intensive Therapy for Gustavo Cerati

In Spanish – from MinutoUno.com.ar

No morirá lo que debe sobrevivir a una terapia de amor intensiva. Si algo está enfermo, está con vida”, supo cantar Gustavo Cerati en un tema que hoy, dada la coyuntura médica que atraviesa, podría llegar a convertirse en una bandera de lucha de todos los fanáticos que siguen, minuto a minuto, la evolución del ex Soda.

Con el objetivo de hacerle llegar, al menos desde lo simbólico, un mensaje de aliento, un grupo de fanáticos realizó una suerte de terapia intensiva virtual en la que, inicialmente, se puede ver el parte médico más crítico emitido por el Instituto Fleni, lugar en el que se encuentra internado Cerati.

Vegan Cake,Truffles and Trifle – Yummy

Since I’ve been here in Scotland here with my dear Sister, she baked me a cake when I arrived ( the banana and date one), it was so nice ( we ate it with cups of tea and with help from my dad), so she baked another one this morning, we’ve had a morning & afternoon just baking, and listening to my loved tracks on last fm it’s been great as I’m on holiday here for a while and I so need a holiday.

We’ve made a trifle, rum truffles and the banana and date cake

Banana and Date Cake

This is so easy to make, my sister has a small baby (24 weeks old) and she can make it in between feeds.

Grace and Gratitude

High above, in the clouds on my way to Edinburgh ~ 26th June 2010

I should really be fast asleep, listening to my meditation cd on my Squeezebox, drifting into la-la land, but I’m here getting inspiration for a new blog post instead… the idea for this post came about by having a good day, it’s been a little while since I’ve felt one of those really well and today was it

It’s starting to come back the feelings of grace and gratitude within me, which is nice.

They are such lovely feelings, well really states of beingness as that’s where you are with grace and gratitude they are like sisters who are just close and you know that they get on like a house on fire. The appreciation of life I have is phenomenal and it helps me deal with all the stuff that crops up in my life.  I know on a deep level that everything has an order even the chaos is an illusion and I do my best to hold steadfast and see the grace in all situations.

Home Cooked Food

Yum

I love to cook, bake etc see this, though I don’t have a lot of time and I get tired as I’m quite busy so when I do have the energy and inclination I really enjoy it.

I’ve met a lot of people who were astounded that for instance I would consider making my own white sauce for a lasagna. I like making things from scratch , I’m not averse to using cooking sauces, frozen fruit or tinned beans to save some time (no point slaving over a cooker for 3 hours for beans)

I enjoy the preparation and the process, since I’ve got a squeezebox boom in my kitchen now, I love to listen to music and cook, especially last night I cooked a carrot and tofu flan from scratch, I love making pastry, it’s so easy and you can put different flours in for different flavours.

I followed a recipe from The Vegan Cookbook (and here is the updated version of the book), my copy is rather battered from overuse, well I have had it since 1986!

Mirror, Mirror

Ahhh Epiphanies great things they are, when the “baseball bat of Life” finally hits you and the jigsaw pieces actually fit.

I was listening to  Get it on by Grinderman this morning – Friday 28th May, just an ordinary day, nothing special as I was getting ready for work and then it suddenly hit me
It’s so bloody obvious and I already had the knowledge – I had used it before and had forgotten about it, how we all get so distracted by the drama of life ( I just needed reminding again, it’s great when you are clear and just know what the next step is)
