    Hi Jo,

    I'm all over my mental place lately, & even a small 'one thing more' added feels like an overwhelming weight for days at a stretch.

    I had another frustrating day, having decided to do some online shopping )KMart this time), & all the while, feeling uncomfortable about buying things so unrealistically inexpensively I cannot but think the people producing these things are working for pennies I don't like it.

    Anyway, that was later & it feels like this morning was another day entirely.

    I woke from one of my extraordinary dreams. It was a 'real' feeling dream, & extremely beautiful in parts.

    The land was rough and very alive, with animals, which I was a little nervous about, but all I did was shoo them away. It was lush with green shrubs, too, but with paths visible here & there. I di get lost & couldn't easily find my way following after some other people, who had gone before me, & were swimming & playing in the shallow water below me.

    As I wandered, trying to find the path they had taken, I encountered, separately, two people, both living there, wanting to be isolated, & somewhat annoyed at all the people. But they did not hassle me, instead, they slipped away, disappearing, as it were, back into the environment.

    I looked down into the bright blue water, & then I knew the way. I knew the water was just a little cool. It had been calm and with gentle ripples. I knew I was late arriving, but it would still be well worth the time I would have there.

    & of-course I woke up. It as the best sleep I'd had for quite a while. & waking up, at first feeling the sensations of the dream, as they faded & my reality returning, & I really wished I didn't have to wake up again. I really wonder, why do I have to have such dreams only to have to wake up? It just makes the waking more difficult, & less acceptable. I really resent it.

    I am happier seeing you have dropped by, so, I'll fill your thermos, fetch some of the bikkies I made earlier for you, but you know, I'd feel better if you'd rest a while before going out again?

    & Jo, Your ☮️ has a lavender-purple background! My ☮ does not! (no, no. I think I am not jealus...am I?Are a cat's eyes often green?) 😼 Have some more bikkies...

    Stay safe,

    mmMekitty

    0400 , broken mid level cloud 50% , calm ( very still & so quiet ) , 17.2° , 31% . WFTNN X . ❤️🌌

    Good morning everyone , a restful day full of peace and tranquility ❤️❤️❤️

    Coffee tea and chai & cake . 🎂 . LD is assisting me slow and low cooking a small pig on a spot with fire baked veg ! For breaky we have eggs how you like them . ❤️❤️❤️

    mmMekitty , I understand your feeling like staying in the dream . There are many times in my waking journey that are less than pleasant also . As my world crumbles I try harder and harder to locate the silver lining within the maelstrom around me . Sometimes it is not at all evident for some time but I feel it is there .

    With hindsight now I see very clearly that my entire life has been training me in some way and none of it was unescessary !

    I am fascinated that you speak of my purple light . Your spot on . I am very glad it shows now ( hugs ) . Your perception is vast .

    Many years ago I heard of a spiritual healer who I went to as a person wanting peace in my seemingly tormented life . When I met her we were already friends ? She was waiting for me . After a period of time she wanted to train me ( finer points I guess ) to carry on her work . I declined as I was not ready to go there then . I already knew but she confirmed for me love is the conqueror of everything . The love I speak of is always around us . If we reflect and learn on our journey we can learn in small steps to acsess it , it is pure and so very precious . We can only be conduits for it . Definitely it is not a commodity . ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️☮️

    Much love from the never never to all , Jo&HRS/LD ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🐾💃🌈💖☮️🌺

    Morning, Jo,

    Brekky sounds wonderful, though I must say, that 'slow and low cooking a small pig on a spot 'has got me fascinated. LOL

    Happy Birthday to those out there whose Birthday it is this October 24! 🎂🎇💖🎶Happy Birthday to You!🎉🎈 🎷🎶🎁 🥂(that's apricot nectar), 🍹,🍨 & other good food & music all day! 🎆tonight!

    Dance with me, LD, never mind your greasy paws - I'll clean them for you, quick smart.

    We'll have swimming in the dam up here, it's suddenly Summer! *splutter, splutter* but the cool water is good... It's something that could feel like it could heal something on days like today. (in reality, I'll have a cool shower instead).

    Take care, & may there be many moments of joy & peace you notice today.

    mmMekitty

    Oh, Jo, I use my Zoom up to 400% to check what is actually on the screen, my big tv screen is my PC's monitor, & I still need so much zoom whenI want to really be sure of what I'm looking at, or editing when I'm listening to my text-to-speech & I'm getting confused with what it is saying, so I still want to see the page. Me wanting to control, wanting to be correct, wanting to know, all of these, I think. That's something I would like to not feel so strongly about, & just let things go... & I do get annoyed to discover, later, that a mistake got past my editor's eye/ear. When I cannot get in there & fix those errors, I have to let them go. Mind, the reading is better when my text-to-speech is not interrupting with, "spelling error".

    Hi Jo,

    Yes, I have discovered that you dash off to the BB Café or is it the other way round? 😺 No worries, I have simply taken up residence there, too! it means more food for mmm😸mmmmmMekitty!

    & LD will never be out of work!

    The auto correct is so idiosyncratic I wonder that it knew 'indiosycratic' was spelled correctly by me! Because I am rather pedantic about such things, & don't like my text-to-speech software announcing 'spelling error' every time that it encounters them, I do like that it does while I am writing, so I hear instantly when I have made a typing mistake. Editing does get confusing when going back & forth trying to correct what I want & not making more errors in the process. It sure does throw up some funny mistakes itself, sometimes. What a difference a single letter makes! It could so easily have been 'spat'! 😺

    Don't neglect to stop & stretch your legs sometimes. Maybe take in the scenery for a few minutes. & as you say, you are way out west, so listen to how quiet it is when your truck's motor is not running.

    Much peace ☮️ & joy 🌸to you.

    Cafe is open but quiet , LD & I will get you whatever we have . ❤️❤️❤️

    I have spent many hours and pushed out many kilometres on the recumbent trike on rollers in my lounge in the last few years . A pleasant way to spend the early hours ! Many wonderful recollections to , quite a few I have shared here also .

    The last 11 months have been quite a journey , some extremely high moments and a few low ones with 2 very low ones .

    Hindsight tells me that I am blessed and so very lucky for my journey , difficult as it has been . The value of life cannot be overstated . My guardian angel has had to work hard at times ( very hard really ) .

    I have in the last 11 months found my tribe and a place to belong . Everyone in this space has had to work hard and go through so very much to get here ❤️ .

    We are here to help others and help those who are at that point where they have to enter this space . When you get to that point , reach out , you are not alone xxxx hugs ❤️❤️❤️❤️🌈🌺

    Hello Jo, LD, ilyLane, & ALL!

    I feel honoured to have been a very small part of your journeys, mostly from the side-lines, but I'm glad if my presence has in any small way helped to make your ourney easier. I'll be here for as long as you need a little distraction &/or support.

    May the road have no more potholes!

    I've had a late breakfast at the BBCafe so now I am ready for morniing tea, an old-fashioned Devonshire Tea, for us all, while my washing spins around & around, & we crank up the juke box to drown out the noise.

    What would you like to hear?

    Welcome everyone and happiness all day with lashings of love acceptance and kindness xxxx ❤️❤️❤️

    I forgot to set backup alarm and LD didn't wake till daylight either ?? Such is life ! Here now , coffee tea and Chai , pick ,& LD will bring .

    Porridge for me today I think ? Just ask & if we have it it's yours . I will prepare & LD will serve ❤️

    Hi LL , thank you ❤️ . I am pedaling as usual at this time of day when home ? Was just likening life's journey to my days single handing in the southern ocean .

    You get subtle changes that build quite a while before the next front really makes its presence known , then wind picks up , sea state getting wilder by the hour till full blown Gail . Usually in middle of the night .

    Once you work out how to handle this one your fear calms and eventually you can observe and even enjoy to a degree the maelstrom around you . Often by daylight the front has gone and the aftermath is slowly settling .

    By breakfast time in a smaller one you will have sail up and be under way again , often everything is washed clean by the rain after the maelstrom and squeaky clean .

    You rest and enjoy then wait for the next lesson ❤️

    LL , much love to you & your family from LD&me ❤️❤️❤️

    mmMekitty , hi . Your very welcome , all chat and care here always helps others that often many read but don't post , that's fine as they have this enormous data base to pick at to work their journeys out with ! The anonimmity lets us speak freely and in a respectful space such as this can be very helpful .

    I didn't post for quite a while , my first one is on page 7 of the second thread in the LGBT main section ( thread is by mspurple ) .

    Thank you mmMekitty , hugs ❤️❤️❤️

    Galaxies of love ❤️ to all from the never never , Jo&HRS/LD ❤️❤️❤️🧡💜💕🐾💃🌈💝🌺

    & Hello here, too, Jo LL & everyone! Hopefully it is just a little cloudy here today. humidity makes the temperature feel 5° warmer, so instead of expecting 26°, it will feel like 310° instead. & sticky.

    That can make me very irritable, so turn up the air-con or see me have a toddler-like tantrum.

    Or chuck me in the swimming pool. That would be 'coooool'! (Sorry, in advance, if my fur clogs the filter). 😸 🎶just keep swimming, 🐟just keep 🐠 ......*splutter, splutter* & chuck me a couple floaties, to would you? & while you are at it, throw in some more fish, & I'll have my lunch out here, too. (Hope the filter is up to the challenge).

    Hi mmMekitty and anyone else who might be here 🧡.

    Humidity determines how comfortable we are I think . Out here in the longer hot spells it can be under 10% some days . 40+ with very low humidity is ok as long as you stay hydrated .

    All have a happy day , hugest amounts of love hugs kindness and generosity with peace ☮️ from the never never , hugs Jo&HRS/LD ❤️🧡💜❤️🧡💜🐾💃🌈💤🌛💕💖🌺

    Oops, I didn't edit my post quite as well as I like. 310° ? No, I meant 30°. I keep a sample for the '°' because it is hard to find in a hurry, I wrote '10°' in a word doc, where I sometimes write before posting. All that happened. I forgot to remove the '1' when I put the '3' in. I don't know why these puny things annoy me so much.

    I do prefer a dry heat, even when it feels like a fan-forced oven when the wind is blowing hot & dry. When I am sweaty & my clothes cling, I can tip into feeling it is absolutely intolerable. I feel I must, straight away get myself cool again, however I can manage it, quicker the better, or I feel as if I could explode. Anything else at all irritating & I think I will begin to have a tantrum, & I might yell & shove & I don't know what...I feel I may react in some way beyond my experience & not be able to control it.

    We had some days here in Brisbane a couple years ago, when it was unusally hot & dry, & although it was bad, I coped better with that kind of heat. I didn't feel I was going to simply 'lose it' at all.

    Keeping the hydration up is the really difficult bit. In the sort of heat you speak of, I don't think I could chill water fast enough to keep up with my consumption.

    *

    I ought to have sent out invites, so more people would have turned up. So, it was a quiet party, & we thought we have had enough scary stories for now, so didn't tell any. I would have enjoyed seeing what costumes everyone would have chosen... oh well, we can do Xmas?

    *

    Happy day, smooth road ahead... 🌺🌹😻

    Hi Jo, I'm okay, well enough to look after those tangles of letters & words for you. It's all those sticky out bits, curves that act as hooks, & when you get them all jumbled in a heap they tend to hook onto each other in unexpected ways, & end in a tangled mess. Given some patience, little by little, we can sort them out.

    & I'll bring you an extra cuppa & a proper breakfast, one with egg on toast, a little bacon, some tomato & spinach & a small tub of yoghurt with berries.

    & guess what, some fresh supplies have just arrived, so there's plenty for everyone! Say? Why don't we have breakfast out on the lawn?

    Hi, to another day, another sleep-in, but still I am tired this afternoon. It's been cloudy & relatively cool for November. I'm bnot complaining.

    Heard some good music on the radio today. Both lively & calm music, Slava Gregorian playing Nigel Westlake's Antarctica music. Fantastic stuff. When I can grab hold of the guitar & follow the intricacies of the melody, I find that is very 'groundin', I suppose the word is. It is a mindfulness exercise fo me, & will also take me out of my thoughts. Sometimes it is like I go places with the music carrying me along a journey. I love it for that.

    I've had my fruit & porridge today. I was thinking of pasta & tomato type sauce later. I'm not sure how much effort I want to go to, though, because I continue to feel so tired lately. So I went & had a snooze while the music was on, (again, because I listen on ABC Classic online, & can select WA time 😸 after listening to either QLD or the other eastern times) , but the porridge & fruit wasn't very filling, & I am hungry again....& mow my legs ache more, as the day goes on, so I don't want to stand much either. I find this very hard to push past.

    So, I will be a grumpy cat for a while, so best keep out of the kitchen.

    Still, I have some iof Jo's ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️to pass around. What an infinite source of warmth & love they are! Self-reproducing & all!

    Welcome and happiness for everyone today hugs xxxx ❤️❤️❤️

    Tea coffee and chai , whatever we have you can . Just ask LD ? ❤️❤️❤️

    I stayed up late last night to watch " A girl like me " .

    Found it quite confronting . It portrayed very well the consuming nature of the journey for the two people .

    I cried a lot . Even with peers to talk with . The all consuming nature of the journey sometimes consumes but eludes us and at times we don't notice this , it's very tiring . I know now that there are many times I don't want to talk or think about trans stuff , just want my life back as true self ( Jo of course ) and it ( life ) have a normality that doesn't need thinking about ?

    Hugs and love LL&P ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Mountains of care love and happy kindness from the never never , xxxxx hugs and love Jo&HRS/LD 💜💖💜🐾💃🌈❤️🌺💙💚🧡💤🌛☀️

    Hi Jo,

    I knew I'd forgotten something which had been advertised, but I couldn't remember what, where, or when, & got too caught up in researching & writing a response to a post,& went & lost it all!

    It is a bit like a gamble for me, when I choose to watch or listen to something, which I know might deeply effect me. Sometimes they do, sometimes not. Sometimes the same programme will have a very different effect, for better or worse, when I see it again, or for the sixth time, Some episodes of Law & Order SVU are like that for me; unpredictable.

    I'll feel familiarity with the repeated programme, but couldn't tell you what happens in the next 2 minutes, so it is almost like seeing it for the first time, even years after I first saw it, & I may have seen it a dozen time, for all I know. I'm sure I've seen some programmes many times.

    There are times I know I have enough, for now, & I am feeling my emotions are too volatile to watch something which has the potential to strike home.

    I know, especially with the news, repeating, replaying video of events, hours, let alone days on end, gets too much for me. It begins to feel like multiple events, & too overwhelming. I must stop watching. That's happened in 2001, & with the bushfires & floods, & COVID-19 reporting. The COVID-19 updates, these were getting blurred & muddled in my head. So now I am not seeking out tv reports - on News 24, the only one I purposely watch to begin with.

    Sometimes, I feel I want to help, but from where I am, know I can't do anything. That can make me feel helpless, & so sad, too.

    You got to have a break sometimes. It's like have a break or be broken.

    I look at my own life, & approaching looking at the whole, it feels overwhelming, far too much to have had to cope with. But, in one way or another I did, because life came at me one bit at a time, & sometimes, there was a break. I imagine these time like being washed up upon a beach, an island, & being able to rest.

    You know the saying, "don't put all your eggs in one basket"? Good to remember, eh?

    So, what about those crows, with wings! 😺 Noisy? & I can't scare them off one bit. Maybe if I put on some overalls, & a big old hat, & stuck straw out the leg holes, & bib, d'ya think I could, then?

    I also went & listened to last Tuesday's2nd Nov, Lunchtime Concert - Diana Doherty playing oboe,with orchestra. She is so good! Things like that do take my mind away, when I need.

    Did you really think I could sell you a tropical island? No, you wouldn't be that gullible, no matter how many sea gulls I supply. 😸

    Looks like I might have a few summy minutes to fly my kite. What do you think, LD? If you will help me tie it to my tail, I can run around the cows!

    Milk & Meringue for afters!

    😸🪁

    Hey Jo, I'm still around,

    wearing my floaties today, swimming around the TRC playing at being an alligator in a moat! If the draw bridge breaks, anyone on it is in for it!, or just 'in it!' 😺

    I do hope you & LD are keeping well as possible.

    Sending you some of these: ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I've been saving up for you. That's three week's worth! 😻

    Hi, anyone here?

    I'd thought I would air out the place, do some redecorating & re-open just as soon as someone arrives.

    I thought a very fluid theme, like something like, 'Ociean to beach house', & everything in between & including what's still up in the air! I'm flying my kite from the rooftop lightning rod as I speak.

    I will reveal more of the new decor tomorrow. Please feel free to make any modifications you like.😺

    I have a 🏳‍🌈from years ago, but I understand there is a more inclusive flag, & would dearly like one for this refurbished TRC.

    😎or☔,😸

    Hi mmMekitty , hope you are well and in good spirits . Just poped in to see if anyone has been in . It is a good space here for LGBTIQ+ folk but sadly under utilised ??? I will drop by from time to time . Have become involved in relatively local Pride Group and have quite a lot going on . Benn doing a bit of the contracting that I do but should hang up the steering wheel I think as I get a bit fatigued with the 12 to 14 hour days now .

    Hugs and love to all , Jo & LD

    Good to see you, Jo. 😹So glad you dropped by. I'd love it if some people had taken to this space more, but... that's the way it goes, I guess.

    I've thought of you often, wondering if things are okay, if you are safe, if you are well, & if the road ahead is smooting out for you...so, reading from another thread, & seeing you here, I am very happy to hear all the good news.

    I have been thinking about & looking into the use of various pronouns, ways of defining myself.... no emojis I can use here. Wish I could make or adapt emojis... but that's a side issue, one which speaks about recognition. From my research, I think I pretty much fit the 'grey ace' tag, & 'cis gender - female'. though I'd prefer if my gender was 'cis-neutral'.

    My interest comes only from trying to work myself out. Otherwise it's a non-issue for me. (except when I acknowledged, I really don't want to be a man or be refered to as he or him /his or male or Mr, I& really want no title at all.

    Ah, but the GP has to know, my surgeon had to know, & if I ever do find myself attracted & interested in persuing an intimate relationship with anyone, they would likely need to know. Otherwise, I really think it is irrelevant to me..

    I had my own medical crisis. Late last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer, in both, & decided to forgo as many complications as I could, so had a double mastectomy. That was back on January 4 earlier this year. So far things are okay. It's been rather rough though.

    Having no breasts has been rather liberating for me, even though I acknowledge that I had derived some sexual pleasure from them, (& when partners have them(. Now, I don't even feel attempting arousal is worth the effort. I am okay with that.

    Because of the type of cancer I had, I'm using a hormone blocker for the next several years. I'm more concerned about some possible side-effects such as my hair thinning , more or faster than it already is ??? Joint pain - already have some arthritis. Decrease in bone density - please, not that , too. 😾 I don't recall much right now.

    Oh, tiredness! I was getting unbelievably tired before 🙀 months before....still do.

    Anyhow, ❤️, ☮️, 🏳‍🌈, (& I found: ⚧️. Maybe more around somewhere?

    I found more flags than I knew existed. Not sure I like them all. Not the duller coloured flags. I like the most vivid colours one can have!

    ❤️☮️❤️☮️❤️☮️❤️☮️❤️☮️

    (😹I've been spreading hearts & peace, & keeping some for you & LD)
