Tag! I'm it!

I've been tagged! Aaaahhhhh!

No, not really so bad, fun even. Iris tagged me to tell you all 6 Random Things About Me. Rules and my tagees at the end of this post.

I have a Quan Yin statue from Ha Noi, Viet Nam. (Yes, I got Her on my trip to meet and adopt my son!) She is the Goddess of Compassion and, possibly linked, spiritually and philosophically, with both Tara and the Black Madonna. I have a Tara and a Black Madonna too.
I am a clutterbug. I actually think of it as being very, very creative and forgetful of the clean-up portion of my play. Sometimes this works, and at othertimes I get pretty frustrated with myself. I am frustrated today and so I will not show you a picture of my desktop.

I dreamed of seeing dozens and dozens of my stitcheries this morning - like the camera was just speeding along the tabletops in my studio. Wow. I was good.

I used to have a 28 minute swimming mile. I am a bit out of shape, ahem. I had to give up those 6 AM swims when I became a mom, doubly so when I became a single mom. But I still swim on occasion... Funny, no picture here either.

I find God in the Kitchen. And in the car while driving. And in my studio, especially while sewing. I don't get to church much anymore. Kind of confusing to find one that works for me. (Also I really am not a Christian anymore. I am just having too much disagreement with how many people get killed on Christian Agendas: 11 million "infidels", 14 million Witches, 9 million Jews, and how many million Arabs in the oil states?? Maybe I should give up Christmas and Easter and go back to the Solstices and Equinoxes. I have always had an interest in Wicca ...)
These are bead ribbons that I made:
You should feel them! They are heavy.

There: 6 random things.
The rules are as follows:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know your entry is up.

Here are my tagees:
Phew! On dial-up this is a big project!

Hi! I was over at Iris's and saw she had tagged you and you had put up your entry. I had to jump over here.

WOW! I love the Quan Lin statue and I know it brings warm feelings to you every day for the blessing of your son.

On other points I felt I could totally not being in the best of shape (but knowing I will again) AND the church thing. For me it was, yes, what you have spoken so well, but also a frustration and confusion that a title alone and a practice, such as that of christian and church attendance, provided the excuse to not take productive action towards a better life and simply waiting on God to provide the right moment and the appropriate steps for change. I read recently in a book about Buddhist thought that "hope is death" for this very reason. I'm trying to put my hands around it in every day, every moment.

It was so good to read of another awesome Creative, Six Random Things so much fun!

P.S., And your bead ribbons are gorgeous. 2xWOW!

You have made me think. I've always considered myself to be very open, giving everyone entirely too much personal information, but now that you have tagged insides are shrieking in panic!:-) Working on it!

Sorry that it has taken me sooo long to post my tagged entry and link back to you. I'm starting to get caught up. Thanks for tagging me! I paid it forward to some of our soul sisters. This is a fun way to get to know one another.

I love quan yin. She is my favorite.

I was a synchronized swimmer in my day. I was also swam daily when I was pregnant with my son. My favorite memory was swimming in the winter at night when it was snowing. Those were in my Colorado days. Can't imagine doing that here in New England.
