Inspiration...?

I will write here without any more than a few trivial events to report this week, and see if the inspiration takes me somewhere else, as it often does when I just sit down and type. In fact, nowadays some visionaries actually channel via a keyboard, the main one being the late Ruth Montgomery, who wrote many books (very hard to buy in the UK) as a result of what had come to her via her guide, a medium when he was alive.
Anyway, this week I only had one client and two cancelled arrangements (which were no big deal anyway) so plenty of spare time. I have started tidying the house and garden at last, slowly but surely, and solved a little mystery today regarding some lost website postings at funtrivia which had confused me for ages, as I found a note saying what I'd posted where that confirmed what I'd done there when I started. I like to know these things, and though many sites keep archives, this had lost a bunch including nearly a year's worth of mine by accident. It's often the little things that mean a lot, and this was one of them.

Otherwise, I am currently free of all obligations (until another arrives) and luckily none of the potential disasters materialised, though the financial one is unlikely to avoid me as rules are rules, and I can't see any way round them. I won't starve, but it won't be so easy to get Sky Sports any more... But I don't know for sure so who knows? The dating site is wound up now, I have had a few responses, including miss droopy who I met. Oy a broch! The next sent me a photo and I was convinced it could have been a man, and decided not to push that one any further. The third was very nice and friendly, then said she hadn't seen the picture of me that was linked to my email, so I had to send her another. Have I heard from her since? Have I bollocks! Shows how scatty some people are, every email there was linked to a profile, mine had a photo, but she emailed me for a few weeks before thinking of seeing what I looked like. Maybe they should see a different photo to the ones of our faces, then they can get straight to the point...

Finally today I want to acknowledge Anna, T.O. and all the others who added comments to my blog. I still read all of yours, and always welcome more feedback. I suppose we can all spot similar souls to our own out there, and the reason I live at Funtrivia half the time is that's where more of mine are than anywhere else. A couple just met and got engaged via there originally, even though they live across the Atlantic and haven't met yet. There's a worldwide network of friends there and on the spinoff sites who have met, and remain close friends. There are now four of us here (that I know of) and hopefully we may get a bit of a community growing here as we have a couple of blog-type threads there as well. I think I'll do a bit of publicity there on that front now.

Still reading David; things will come together in their own time. We always want things to happen immediately but unfortunately the world doesn't work that way. Everything will come together for you but it just may not be in the way that you expect. Then again, I expect that you already knew that. :)

Thanks T.O., you are right, of course. I still wonder how much we can do to improve our lives, or accept the advaita view we can have no direct effect on them. At 44 I have to say that though I cracked the financial and then the career side, my ability to hold on to people has let everything else down. Past friends and family came in my life themselves, and few took any effort from me to find. Now it seems I have to almost start the process from scratch. I have many new friends from the internet now, but few nearby. I will see...
