As the first Ritual Drama came to an end and the Temple Guardian unsealed the Temple.
I find I am leading the fates out, bowing to the East and then to the Guardian as we leave. I stand in the hallway and I truly wonder just what had happened. I felt as if I was still Limma but there were Sue and Stuart thanking us for our hard work . So I guess I was back in the present.
Sue announces that we are meeting at the pub which is literally next door. I can’t get my head round that really. I end up asking Steve, Katie, Sue and Stuart if they are going to the pub because I still feel otherworldly. They must think I am an alcoholic!
Some of our number are too tired after traveling and go straight to bed. I go to my room and change, I begin to feel a little more myself and decided to join the others at the pub.
I meet some companions at the door and we go to the pub. We all all meet up those of us who have not fallen into the arms of Morpheus.
We all had a great chat and discussed what we had done and what we would do tomorrow. I knew I was among friends.💜
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

Thank you Sis
And the pub, which usually closes much earlier, stayed open late for us specially, bless them 🙂
Yes I was going to mention that but I was not sure I had my facts right 💜
You did. They should have closed at nine… and we didn’t arrive till much later than that. ❤
I know the time just disappeared that Friday night💜
It always does on these weekends 🙂 x
(I’ve set this up to reblog tomorrow x)
Thank you Sue 💜
Glad you felt good enough to go to the pub and enjoyed yourself, Willow.
I enjoyed it Miriam 🌹
Good that you had a great time, Willow. ❤
I did Miriam and learned a lot 🤭
I had gone to retreat like that and I always came away learned a lot. 🙂
It is always a lesson 💜
Exactly, Willow. ❤
I can relate to that out of this world feeling, Willow. You were very engaged with the activities which is marvelous.
It’s over a week and it’s all still clear in my mind 💜
Another beautiful experience Willow.
Thank you Hélène 💜
My pleasure to read all this sharing from you Willow.
Reblogged this on Stuart France.
Thank you Stuart 💜
I hope you are still enjoying it when we finish 💜
It’s tricky grounding oneself sometimes, after doing such deep work. 🙂
Yes I am learning that 💜
