Another Quiz

I don't really "get" enneagrams although apparently, they originate with Gurdjieff, who is someone I've always wanted to read, but haven't gotten around to (and his books always look so intimidating.) Anyway, there's a quiz I found, thanks to Poppy, that looked kinda interesting, and, as you'll see if you know me, is pretty close. So here are the results:

Places I've been

I've already told people I'm a sucker for quizzes. Well, I'm also a sucker for blog memes. So here's a new one. The countries and states you've visited...

The Pacific Ocean smells different ...

than the Atlantic. Less tangy perhaps? It's subtle. If anyone has any ideas as to why this is, let me know.

My Datebook

I should be reading for a class, but my favorite procrastination technique, by far, is blogging. Be that as it may, I want you all to know that I am slowly, but surely, moving to luddite status. Gasp! You say "Michelle, a luddite? Never!"

The mystic in me, where did it come from, and where is it going?

I had a class today, where we were all going around the room, and the teachers had asked for a one word, or one phrase description of ourselves that would help them remember us. I said "I'm a mystic." Someone asked me once why I called myself a mystic. I had to think a minute or two. In that process, I realized that I came to that label not so much from a head space, but from a heart space, which is why I have a hard time sometimes explaining why I think I am one.

My Urban Persona

I caught a glimpse of her yesterday, having gone into the the city (um, that's San Francisco) on BART (um, that's Bay Area Rapid Transit) My urban public persona is very different than my New England semi-rural persona. My urban persona is more distant (behind the iPod), wary, observant, with a little tough swagger, a bit aggressive on the edges. My New England persona is open, expectant and soft, completely non-aggressive. I had noticed that my early few forays into the city were a bit, well, painful, whereas this time, it felt kinda normal.

Guerro Negro, Baja California Sur

I´m sitting in a small, cute cybercafe in the town of Guerro Negro, Baja. My friend and I just spent a wonderful day on the ocean, watching grey whales - very close. There will be pictures up on Flickr once I get back - we got some nice whale shots, and shots of some very interesting sights.

I'm at this moment struggling with a Spanish language keyboard, as we´ve been struggling with our muy broken Spanish for the last couple of days.

Off to Mexico

One of the things I'd hoped when I moved to California, is that I'd get to go to Mexico at least a couple of times. So, the first time is coming up now. I'm driving down to Southern California to stop in with some friends in the mountains, then picking another friend up at the San Diego airport, and then driving down about mid-way down the peninsula. I'm very much looking forward to it. No laptop, although I have been told my cell phone will work. But, that means likely not much (if any) blogging from Mexico. But I'll take lots of pictures, and post them at some point.

City Life

I spent a wonderful day in the city (San Francisco) yesterday. I hung out with a new friend, we had brunch (which is, apparently, a city thing,) went shopping for leather jackets in very interesting places, and just wandered around.
