Big Black Horse and Volcanic Ash


You know what I am really into these days (and it's not yoga)?

Sharing.


It's too bad that the word "sharing" is becoming synonymous with cheeseball catch phrases like, "share precious moments" or "sharing the love" but that--my worn torn sailors--is not my fault. I think sharing is a perfectly, popular, pastime and I rather adore it.

There was a time when my sister Nie was the captain of the "No Share" club which boasted three cousin members. They were around ten years of age and insisted on
not sharing whatever they had in their possession (mostly candy from Minuteman.) I am happy to say that Nie is no longer in that stage of life. Phew because everybody likes Starbursts.

Just last week Chup and I attended a gathering at Mayday and Davey's home where Kip, a recent graduate of Math Education, shared with us his unique and comprehensible talent of reciting the movie Star Wars in its entirety (complete with character's inner thoughts and facts vs. fiction--bonus features.) I was astounded.

And I shared my KT Tunstall cd with ~J, and I haven't even asked for it back. And you know why I haven't asked for it back? Because sharing is ding-dong-dang fun.


If I had Bill Gate's money, or even my cousins the Pope's money I would purchase for you all a very seriously soothing secret I discovered last night. It's called "Redmond Clay" which is volcanic ash that was deposited in sea water approximately 60 million years ago. I
didn't copy that from the back of the jar. (I did copy that from the back of the jar.) And so you put this stuff in your bath and before you know it your bath looks like sea water from approximately 60 million years ago. After soaking for awhile you could smell the earthy scent and feel that your skin was getting so moisturized that it glistens. Glistens! Then you could put a little of this powder in your hand, mix it with a bit of water into a mud and douse your face for an effective facial. I love this stuff and I bought it at Pretty Good Earth.

At least I shared with you a tip. Right? (Remember 60 million years ago...approximately.)

Who has shared with you lately?

What have you shared?


What can you share now?


Try it. It's fun.
