I’ve been working all night on stuff at the computer with an orange cat trying to get and hold my attention by scratching at my leg.
Cathi was pretty much giddy all evening after we got word that everything has been signed and the closing will take place on September 6th. I talked to Mom and my sister in Alaska and then tried to edit stuff and send email to a few of the most important people I could find in my email address book.
The two photos above were taken on Monday, during our 2 hour ordeal while the inspector and the buyers were going through the house. There are a couple of cable television cables they pulled out of place upstairs that catch on the bathroom door every time I open or close it, and I’ve stuffed the cables back in place… or at least tried to.
Yesterday, I got a call early to go into the studio where I work and help the electricians figure out what they need to do to feed cables from the town hall’s new sound system and new computer-linked projector down through the floor to our studio down below. The new CAO and building engineer rearranged the council chambers room to emphasize the mayor’s presence and make it much more difficult for camera operators to look and act professional without stepping in front of, around, or into the picture with members of the town council during official meetings.
But anyway- hey- The house was sold a lot quicker than most houses in this area and we are several giant steps closer to achieving our dream of living in a nicer world with nicer people, less pressure, more positive spirituality, and a brighter future than we can see in this town. (This town has some really really great people. But the nasty ones are stating their nastiness louder and louder. I mean they freaking extorted thousands of dollars from their taxpayers here in a scam over water bills that I’m pretty sure will turn out to be a major accounting error that no one will admit to, and no one will attempt to refund.) (It’s similar to the way “they” charge a thousand times more for gasoline in this country than they should be able to get away with ((they believe that nobody knows enough about what they’re doing to hold them accountable)) (((& whether it’s in the name of free enterprise or naked greed, it will explode in their faces and soon.))) ((((And believe me, you don’t want to be standing too close to them when the fit hits the shan…)))) The town we’re moving to (and the Province we’re moving to) is reputed to be populated by much nicer people. Too many of Ontario’s citizens are turning into a bunch of wanna-be New York City types.)
Yum? Even if it was a wonderful Ontarian who introduced us to the cosmic forgiveness principle and practice of asking God and the Universe to transmute the negative energy that nasty people slap us in the face with into something much more positive— rather than focusing our own energy on hoping and praying for revenge, or that the bad people get what they deserve when we could be hoping and praying that they come to their senses, realize their shortcomings, learn to love and accept themselves and others, or absorb enough Cosmic Love and Compassion to be transformed and learn from their mistakes. ((If we spend our time seething with anger, soaking in negativity- we sink to the level of the evil that wants to pull us all down. If we attempt to forgive, and finally achieve the ability to “forgive and forget” we can move on to higher and better things…)) Am I waxing or waning philosophical here?
Okay, tell me to shut up before you all realize that I am so utterly exhausted that I can’t even make sense to myself at the moment.
(insert happy smile with halo here?)
