  3. I like that lizard too, and the crabby creature.

    All the songs I think of have lyrics that fit, but I am forgetting the titles, like that one by ELO ‘it’s a living thing, it’s a terrible thing to lose…higher and higher…” which seems to apply-ish to the ‘above’ theme. There is also a disco one that is somehow not reaching it to my brain. Oh well–maybe I will figure it out later! Sorry to not being contributing right now–how are you?

    • Hahaha! I love E.L.O. Still one of my favorite concerts ever. I’m doing fine. Just livin’ the dream. How are things in your neck of the woods? 😊

      • Finally we have good rain, so that feels much much better. I’m into the weekly drum circles in downtown Woodstock, and have been listening to random drum circles or drumming tracks online. It’s alright.

      • Good deal! Glad y’all have cooled off a bit. We haven’t, other than in the mornings. By midday, it’s scorching. Still better than freezing. 😃


      • I dunno. I like seasons that work well. I hope you guys get good rain, good weather, whatever you need. We had a little too much lightning for a bit there, and it hit in front of us at a distance when we were driving and actually burned inside my chest–terrible pain. Next day it hit a tree next to the house and I could feel it in solar plexus and an arm, but fortunately not direct hits. My Tibetan doctor says it’s okay though, so that’s good.

      • Lightning is crazy, and we had a bunch when we were in Florida last week. It can be dangerous.


      • Yeah, really can. There are finally some good lightning safety info things online, since we pretty much all grew up with delusions about what will keep us safe–worth checking out.

      • If I see it, I’m staying on the porch. Or inside. 😃

      • And even then they say away from windows, and don’t use phone (cell is apparently okay; others, even cordless, not okay), computer, run water, shower, and I personally have my doubts about the wisdom of sitting on the potty if there are ways to avoid it during maybe lightning. Right now it looks like sunset here, and is wet, so maybe we’ll have more rain–yup,. there it is. I love it when it feels safe. last year though we had some lightning that was indoors–frigging weird. A flask of blue light came through the wall right next to me, when it was outdoors. Maybe it was the water tap for watering the lawn, which we have neevr used. Life is odd.
