Axial Wobbles

  • Feeling: intrigued
  • Current Weather: Mostly cloudy. 11C. Forecast: Sunny. Winds southwest at 30 km/h gusting to 50 km/h. High 19C

Has the earth's axis wobbled again?  With all the weather events and weather-related events taking place in various parts of the world, lately, one really can't help but wonder.

Not including the floods of 2013, the weather this year has definitely been bizarre in our corner of the continent.  We're getting winter weather where we should be enjoying summer; cold weather seems to be more intense and longer lasting; fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods all over the world... The planet seems to be turning itself inside out and upside down.

On the other hand, maybe I'm making a mountain out of a molehill. But, I remember the last time the earth's axis wobbled, which was back in the late 1990's: The weather events that occurred from that slight wobble were global and quite intense then, too. And it took a few years for things to stabilize again.

So, I wonder if that's what's happening now. The floods of 2013 aside, this year has been pretty incredible where planetary and weather events are concerned. Indeed, it's been so bizarre that, just for the sake of my own curiosity, I'm going to do some research and make a list of the more extreme events that have taken place since the start of the year.

Have a great day. Thanks very much for visiting. Take care...

Visit to Heaven, Revised

On Sunday, the opportunity arose to reconnect with nature in a way that defies description.  It was sorely needed, and I hope the photos will provide at least some small measure of the experience I had. Enjoy...

Forward Motion

  • Feeling: grateful
  • Current Weather: Mainly clear. 5C. Forecast: Sunny. High 16C

It seems this summer visited for a weekend and then gave way to the start of fall and cooler temperatures.  At this moment, it is a mere 5C; yesterday, it rained all day, it was dark and cold... and some parts of the city saw the S-word.

Over the past few years, I've been noticing that our winters are getting longer, whereas our spring and summer seasons seem to be merging into one season that lasts from about June to right around now. Fall is a season all its own and lasts from about now until around the end of September. Then, winter starts poking at us once again. Climatologists have been talking for years about how we're moving towards another ice age. Based on how much the weather has changed in my lifetime, I don't think they're wrong.  I'm just thankful that it won't come to pass in my lifetime.

Training with my puppy client is going very well. He and his human are making excellent progress.  I am especially pleased with how quickly he grasps what he's being asked to do, and how he's able to retain each of his lessons. His human handler is doing a great job of reinforcing them through practice on a daily basis.  I have some work to do with the other humans in the home, but I'm sure that as my puppy client progresses, they will progress, too.

In the paranormal aspect of my life, my team is moving forward quite nicely. I was recently interviewed by a U.S. author, and just this past week, most of the team (a couple of my teammates were unable to make it) was interviewed in a live studio. Also in this past week, a reporter for a local newspaper requested an interview. That interview should be going public in the next week or two.

All in all - aside from the fibro issues - life and the universe continues to help me move forward. Every day brings me opportunities to learn and grow, and to experience and continue developing the state of gratitude I've been striving to cultivate in my life. If it gets better than that.... Well, anything more is just gravy.

Have a great day and a great weekend. :)
