Dream Journal Update...

I had another strange dream last night/this morning-go figure! Here it goes:
I was hosting a concert in my backyard,which consisted of my caseload (I work with individuals with developmental disabilities). Two of my clients went missing after the concert and I was walking around my house calling out their names. One of their names just happens to also be Kelly. I hear little footsteps coming down the street and this little girl stops in front of me. I realize it's not just any little girl-it's me as a child (see photos). I had pigtails and an outfit that I actually wore as a child-it was a Mr. T shirt and a skirt. What's sad is that I told the child or myself to go back. It was so real and so bizarre. I think I know what sparked the dream...I was watching Ellen Degeneres' stand up routine on you tube the other day and she mentioned that there is a inner child in all of us that lives on even after we become dull and boring adults. This led me to think of a teacher's words that I will always remember...she said something to the affect of, there's a difference between being "childish," and "childlike." She reminded us to always try to be "childlike." As you can see from some of my posts and videos, I can be very "childlike," at times, which I feel bad about sometimes. I feel that I should be more dull and boring and not enjoy swinging from vines, playing on the slip "n" slide, etc. I think the little girl (my inner child) came to me in my dream to remind me that it's OK to have fun. Maybe I'm way off here, but there was certainly no interpretation online for this particular dream.:)

Today's Tennessee Happenings...

Here's some background info on the link I've posted...I graduated from The University of Tennessee back in 2003. There was this oddity known as "The Rock." Students painted the rock almost each day, so it was fun to see what new and exciting stuff the rock had to offer as I passed by it each day on the way to class. Well, anyhoo, the rock has stood in the same spot for years and years and years, until today. The rock is being moved to another location on campus to make room for the construction of the new student health center. Enjoy!:)

Even More Tennessee Happenings...I'm spoiling you guys today!

I don't think it's a great idea for all of us uneducated (reference previous post) Tennesseans to be carrying GUNS in BARS! haha!

More Tennessee Happenings

Please follow the link and read the commentary. Fortunately, I beat the statistic here in the volunteer state. Unfortunately, many who provided commentary obviously did not. Enjoy!


Today's Tennessee Happenings...

I wonder why the sinks @ restaurant kitchens either don't have hot water or simply don't work at all? That's one for you guys to ponder on...

My new Tattoo!!!

So, I'm not one to just go out and get a tattoo for the heck of it (well, aside from my first one). It involves a great deal of planning and thought for me. Sooo...I'm going this evening @ 8:00 PM to get my new tattoo. As most of you already know, I practice yoga regularly, and at the end of each session, we bow and say Namaste. What does Namaste mean, you ask? I compare it to Shalom or Aloha. It can mean several different things. Follow the link to learn more about the meaning of Namaste. Also, follow the second link to see what my tattoo will look like-I'm getting it on my left shoulder.
