a mime is a terrible thing to waste.

For those that hate mimes, I understand. But you'll never find me annoying people on the street, unless I'm living there. I'm a "concert mime" ...which means you have to buy a ticket. I haven't done much mime lately...I'd rather be writing. *********************************** I've been married to my one and only since 1976. Still happy. Still in love. Two kids, eight grandkids. In college I became a Baha'i (a world religion whose main theme is unity). It keeps me relatively sane in a world gone mad.

Ying Yang Day

Rate: 14 Flag

This afternoon there is a party at our house for my one year old grandson and three year old granddaughter. My daughter booked a pony, and while she isn’t saying this, I’m sure it was inspired by an unfulfilled childhood wish. One pony is no big deal. It’s the fourteen-animal-petting zoo that makes me nervous.  


Two thousand seventy eight miles to the west and north of us, while we are herding creatures, calming squealing children, and hoping no one calls the police to report farm animals within city limits (something I was not worried about until a friend married to a cop mentioned it), there is a memorial service for my niece who died last month. If you picture a quiet, somber service... don’t. It’s being held at an Dance Pavillion in the center of a Portland, Oregon Amusement Park. My brother advised attendees to dress appropriately for “Tilt-a-Whirl” following the service.


I wanted to be there. But I couldn’t miss my grandchildren’s birthday. My niece reminded me what a precious and unknown quantity life is.


I don't claim to be an expert on these matters, but I understand time and space in the world beyond isn’t what it is here. I envision her zooming back and forth. It's possible today she will achieve my fantasy: Being in two places at once.

Sweet and sad. Your wisdom is comforting, encouraging and joyful, Sharon.

Good call, spending time with your grands.

You remember your niece every day. She is in both places, celebrating with all of you.
It sounds like a beautiful day all around, Mimetalker! I bet wherever she is, your niece will be smiling.
I hope you enjoy your day./r
(Sigh) life can be so damn...poignant. Enjoy your day with your loved ones. Smile while the sun is shining.
Have fun today...your niece would want you to.
Have completed LOST... Fully confident that you will zoom back and forth in time & space ;-)
Yes, time travel and two places at once....
A wonderful attitude to adopt and I'm sure your niece would be proud of you.
Yep, you made the right decision. But damn, I do love a tilt-a-world. Enjoy your day, I'm sure your neice will be everywhere and enjoy seeing you smile.
I want to believe you are right and mostly believe you are so keep your eyes open!
I know from what you have written before that you will be both places with the great love that you feel.

Your niece must be good and your memories are quite charming.
