This next piece almost looks to belong to the set but it doesn't. It's a heavier piece, no lip on the bottom, it has a spoon and natural form handle on the lid (is it an apple? a pomegranate? a persimmon?). The inside of this bowl and the spoon are both diveted and scraped but I don't know how or why. This one piece is stamped: Handmade Danish Quality Pewter Made in the USA, Queen's Art Pewter, Brooklyn NY. It is also number stamped: 135
Not sure what it is but my nails are also growing. Mine have white tips, once they pass the nail bed, and they're showing up pretty good right now. Perhaps they're happy with the gentle pressure of computer keys, perhaps not spilling is keeping them extra clean...
Ok then! That's enough of that! There are some things I am paying attention to but after they begin and while they continue to happen. I'm not foreseeing anything nor predicting but riding alongside myself staring wildly at whatever comes up, nodding my head, doing that frowny-approval-smile. Pretty cool, pretty clean, pretty white.

My Dad. More to come on this man but I wanted to scrap one of the few more recent pics I have of him, this one being from 2003 (ahem). I had fun thinking about him and putting words down on this layout, thinking about the pieces of him and him as a whole. If I get a current picture (Ahem) of him (AHEM), I will definitely be doing more. Meanwhile I'll have to work off older pictures (AAAAAAHEMMMMMMMM).
Sometimes Jarrod acts as if he doesn't want his picture taken. I take this as a clue to work harder to capture him.
Mahalo for males!

Today I stood up for myself against someone who, over the years, I have let get under my skin and I would feel small and powerless when things got rough. Today, not so much and that was HUGE! I feel like I stood up for myself. I didn't believe threats nor react to them. I protected myself. I didn't support any arguing and I moved swiftly to counteract. Afterwards I wasn't shaking out of control nor was I sweating or crying or feeling like I wanted to die to escape the situation facing me. I didn't stop myself from seeing the entire thing for what it was. I didn't stop myself from investigating what I needed to know in order to get to the truth. I did act. I did put a period at the end of the sentence. I also reached out quickly to friends for support. In one message I actually gave myself the support I needed by realizing further truths. I turned another corner on my road of this game we call life and I feel good about it!
Mahalo for forward movement!
