That Dream May Come True

August 31, 2007

Hi y’all,

I had to share Eric Francis’ words for Paul, who is a November 8, 1958 Scorpio and myself this week. It’s perfect, if you know the story. He has loved me for 35 years. And you all know how I feel about love & marriage.

Next week we will take the next steps toward being together and see how it flies.

What I read here is that our mutual dreams of living and teaching may work together. We hope to pool our life experiences and share them with others, writing and teaching . . . and living. 

And yes, we both realize nobody needs us to teach them anything. We just can’t seem to stop. We’re having that much fun!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
This week’s eclipse of the Moon in your empathic sign Pisces has helped put your priorities on the right track. Indeed, you were in danger of becoming so focused on work and achievement that you nearly forgot your deeper calling as a passionate, creative person. Yet these traits, of your soul as well as your personality, are newly unveiled. You are free to take risks you would not have dreamed of the past few years, and this will help you on what promises to be an intriguing, challenging path for the next few years of carving out a special place for yourself in the world — a place among your friends, your professional colleagues, and among those whose ideas and visions help shape life on our planet. These may come in small ways, but be on notice, they may come in rather large ones as well.
 
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
The main attraction of the year has yet to happen, but it’s drawing you toward it with all the intensity of the Galactic Core, where it occurs: a conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto in Sagittarius. If you feel like your life has been leading to a deep breakthrough or a revelation; if you feel like you are slowly coming into inheritance of some deep spiritual truth, but on the most personal level; this is likely to be it. That being said, most people miss these things as casually as missing a city bus. What can I say? Well, this is about you, but it’s not entirely about you. As Saturn moves into Virgo, punctuated by a dramatic solar eclipse, remember that your true calling is service. To perform your service, you must be exceptionally self-aware, yet constantly connected to the golden thread that weaves together all people, all cultures, and all humanitarian ideals.

A Lifetime Dream

August 15, 2007

Two posts today – Roots & A Lifetime Dream

I thought maybe I’d just share with you my vision of my eventual ideal living arrangement.  I’ve had this dream for maybe 20 years, probably ever since I lived in the ashram in Texas, although it has roots in being born into a family of 6, I’m sure.

It’s taken 20 years or more already, and there is no telling what actually doing it will eventually take.

I had always thought I’d find a husband and we’d do this together, but that isn’t happening, so I thought I’d put my dream out once again and see what comes back.

I want to live in an intentional community. I was reading The Intentional Communities Directory in print before we all had PC’s at home. Now it’s online. I have yet to find one that sounds like my tribe. So, I may have to create it.

Remember when I was considering being a managing tenant at Joy’s? The idea was to get 2 roommates, finish the basement for a 3rd roommate and/or a classroom, and start my own. Then she got an offer and sold the house.

My dream community has various living spaces from rooms to full apartments or homes for up to 20 or 30 people, or maybe as few as 10. I’m not fond of the idea of children in the space, but it might be unavoidable for that size group.

There would be a classroom or two, more like a lounge area, a very large communal kitchen, hot tub, and the like. I’m not into gardening, but I imagine others will want that, so I suppose there would be enough property for some kind of gardening.

There would be singing and chanting groups and I need a guitarist-in-residence.

Meditation time & space would be available morning, noon and night, though not a requirement.

Some of us would work full time there, teachers, an IT manager, maybe a cook. Others might hold jobs elsewhere.

We might organize as a church or nonprofit.

So, that’s most of it. I can’t think of anything else right now.

Thanks for reading.

Love,

Stacy

Roots in Colorado

August 14, 2007

Okay, so here’s an idea I have.

I no longer want to be gypsy-ing quite so much. Traveling, yes, but I want a home base. It is clear to me I strongly prefer the Boulder, Colorado area. So, I would like to dig in and live here for real.

Up until now, I have never in my life even had the desire to own a home. I don’t know why. It just wasn’t a desire.

Now it is.

I’d like to own or share ownership in a home in or near Boulder, Colorado.

So, here’s my question, and I’m serious about this: 

Would you like to invest in real estate in Colorado? Would you like to live here?

The market is the lowest in years. Do your research. It could be a very good idea. I’d love to live above 7000 feet where it is cooler.

Maybe you (or someone you know) just receive a large inheritance or other form of income that you need to invest somewhere? Or do you just simply like the idea of owning property in Colorado?

I’m an excellent roommate and/or managing tenant.

Check inside… is anything in you leaning toward this idea?

I nearly did this with Joy’s place. Then she got an offer finally and sold it. So, that didn’t happen. I had a week and a half to move, and luckily Erin needed a roommate. It’s good there, really, but I want something more.

So, there it is. Write me back with ideas, suggestions, leads, whatever.

Love,
Stacy
