I had a very quiet but really beautiful New Year’s Eve, gang. I really did. And whether yours was very quiet or very festive, I hope yours was great, too.
I did not stay awake to see midnight happen, but I was awake in plenty of time this morning for my weekly Connecting Consciousness world meditation at 5am, so that was nice! (The guided meditation comes live on a zoom call from Auckland, New Zealand, every Saturday. It is night time there, but 5am here. ) I love starting my weekends with that meditation. It’s mostly people from NZ, Australia, Singapore, Japan, and the US. And it seemed especially charged today, since it’s the start of 2022.
This will be brief because there is not much news.
Regarding Betty White dying at age 99 — I don’t know if this is true, but here ya go:
And a Happy New Year from Pepe Lives Matter:
“2022 is going to be our year anons.
I’m feeling it. They’ll never limit my hopium levels. I have unlimited hopium forever.
Let’s go frens.”
And I thought this was cute. An exchange between il donaldo tr**po and L i n W **d on telegram yesterday (apparently, all you have to do is add an “o” and you’re speaking Spanish!!):
“Mi Beautiful Lin, You’re a Good Man. I know God Will Bring Your Family Closer to You. When He Asks YOU to Take a Step Forward Towards Them, Take Everything That’s Good in Your Heart With You, and Leave any baggage from the past behind. I’m Praying for You and Your beautiful Family. Give Them ALL of Your Love!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! LET’S MAKE THIS AN AMAZING 2022!!!”
Reply from L i n:
“Thank you, mi beautiful amigo, iL Donaldo Tr**po!!! Many thing-o’s will come-o true in 2022!!!
God bless you, mi amigo. Your Amigo Lin. 🙏”
[FYI: if you’re new to this, il donaldo is actually Tr **p.]
And I saw this on Sh a r i R aye’s te le gram and thought I’d share it, since I love stuff like this:
And I guess this is the only actual “news. I found this extremely interesting.
“From today, January 1st, Poland will be the chairman of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. Armenia takes over the chairmanship of the CSTO. #CSTO The Collective Security Treaty Organization is an intergovernmental military alliance in Eurasia that consists of selected post-Soviet states.”
And that is it, gang. I have a really quiet weekend planned here. The only pressing thing I have to do is take down the tree and put all the Christmas stuff back in the storage closet. I’m still feeling really Christmas-y so I probably won’t do it until tomorrow, but we’ll see.
Other than that, I might sit at my desk and write. Or sit on my bed and stare out the window. You just never know.
I had a really beautiful thing happen after work yesterday, a great way to welcome a new and magnificent year — in my mailbox was a letter from the Department of Development and for some unknown yet glorious reason, they’ve applied an “Assistance Credit” to my heating bill for close to$900 (!!). This covers my heating bill for an entire year. Yay!
Okay, so have a great New Year’s Day, wherever you are in the world. Don’t forget that today is the final day of the Christmas Sale over at Smashwords, where you can download 4 of my older eBooks for free. (See yesterday’s post for the links.)
Okay thanks for visiting. I love you guys. See ya!
I leave you with my beautiful breakfast-listening music from early this morning, perfect for this very rainy day: “Love Letter” by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, 2001. (I never, ever, EVER get tired of this song.)
