Your Mileage May Vary: Trying Not to Choke on Dust Bunnies

This post was originally published on the Seraph’s Quill.


I did not actually fall off the face of the Earth as one might have thought given my inactivity.

Do you know that I actually had to go to the Seraph’s Quill page on Facebook to remember what the web address was? How pathetic is that?!

In my defense, I have been awake since 3:30 this morning.

Insomnia is a good excuse for memory challenges, right?

So, what has kept me away from the blog this time?

Well, I have realized over the years that my personal habits do tend to follow the seasons, whether consciously or unconsciously, and it was a really busy, external summer here.

Though I was beginning to feel my usual Autumnal pull within weeks prior to this, I’m feeling it in a stronger way now that the weather has finally taken a turn toward Autumn here in the Carolinas.

Still, to be quite honest, I don’t believe that was really my reason for being away from here. At least not in its entirety.

The sharings I offer here are simply musings, my own personal thoughts with regard to my spiritual journey. They are snapshots of my reality put into words as best as I am able because human language – any human language – is so limiting. Not to mention…. Your mileage may vary.

Why? Well, because whether we realize it or want to admit that we realize it, individual “reality” varies from one person to another, and our reality as an individual is upon our consciousness, where we place our focus.

I’ve been intellectually aware of this Universal truth for many, many years.

“You create your own reality!”

I “preached” it to anyone who would listen for nearly as long. BUT it was not until recently – while my family (like so many others) was visited by Florence – that I really realized the truth of the matter.

But, that is a story I promise to share at another time.


I came across this meme via Facebook recently, and I thought it really hit the nail on the head. It’s one I believe many of you can relate to.

I experience a lot, and I still learn a lot. AND I have a lot of “ah-ha!” moments, revelations, BUT I also keep a lot to myself, only sharing it with my closest confidantes. Because, well… the “I’m not crazy. I’m not crazy” factor.

I Know in my heart of Hearts that I’m not crazy, but a part of me – my Human Self – doesn’t want to give “the doubters” fodder for when they determine whether to commit me or not.

You know, I’ve heard tell that’s residual thoughts and emotions from lifetimes when we were committed or burned at the stake.

While talking to a dear friend yesterday though, I was reminded that there are a lot of folks out there that do get something out of these musings, that they help some to realize that they’re not alone in the “crazy”. You just might be one of them.

So, I’ve put my butt back into the “saddle” again, or – at the very least – the chair, and I am putting fingers to keyboard to share my thoughts and details of my own experiences as I journey my way through this thing called “life”.

Just remember… Your mileage may vary.

Take what resonates with you, leave the rest and know that you’re not alone.

Much Love to You, dear (fellow) Human
