I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

About time...

I have gotten so many emails from friends who think Ive dropped off the side of the earth so I thought Id better take some time and blog:)
Last weekend I went to Maine with Shovel to stay with his brother Jimmy.It was so beautiful up there and of course on the way,I had to stop at the wine shop to get a case of wine.Its a huge liquor outlet and was meant to be cheaper but the wine I drink was actually more expensive.But I got some anyway and I was very glad to get off the motorway! It freaks me out!! theres SO many cars and trucks and everyones doing 70 mph and so clsoe together.I dont like it and at one stage actually cried with fear!Once we got past Boston the traffic wasnt as bad but still way more traffic than Im used to..and anyone who knows me,knows how much I hate the roads.The strange thing is that Ive never been scared on a bike,EVER! its just in cars.
So we arrived at Jimmys mountain late in the afternoon.It was a gorgeous day and felt wonderful to be way up high in the forest on the mountain.Hes got a cabin in the bush,well thick jungle type of bush.Id be scared to walk around in it cos Id get lost in seconds.
(Theres a pic of me and Jimmy and in the background you can see the forest)

As the sun dropped slowly down behind the hills,Jimmy began to cook dinner.He put some prime rib steaks on the BBQ and Ive never seen such huge bits of meat in my life! Mens kind of food I guess..
Afterwards he said lets go for a ride around the block...so 60 something miles later...LOL It was great and I loved every second of it.We had to pause on the road for 3 deer who ambled slowly across in front of us,but there was no traffic and the stillness and quiet of the beautiful Maine countryside was only interrupted by the roar of harley davidsons.Im sure the deer just came out to look;)
I have been so grateful to everyone here who have taken my under their wings and protected me and loved me.Ive met some genuine and loving friends who have eased my sadness immensely.I still feel such a big part of me is missing but its getting better.Im not in any hurry to go home.Maybe I will be here for a year.I would like to see all the seasons as they change.I dont want to go back to the sorrow that was behind me.Im learning to live again,without my James but with a new me.
Life is good..God is healing me.The ppl of America have welcomed me with open arms.
