I will not vote for either the Liberal Party or the Labour Party unless they provide reasonable solutions for our water problems, they provide assurance that our agricultural land will not be sold offshore, all imported foods are tested reliably and proof provided that they are safe to eat. I will vote for the party I feel will address all of these pertinent issues the best. Moongirl signing off.

Here I am again sitting up on a high chair in the middle of the office surrounded by strangers. My broken right foot hurts real bad, feels like it is trying to tear itself off my leg. I can't sit from the pain in my lower back and I can't stand because both of my feet are broken. The pain is so intense I want to scream, but I can't, can't draw attention to myself, so I suffer in silence. I feel dizzy, think I'm about to faint, so I drop another butter menthol into my mouth, hoping the sugar will give me a boost. Some days are like this, nothing can help me. Later in the day, after running errands, I'm finally home. Put on the electric blanket and climb into bed. Hope tomorrow is better. Moongirl signing off. xxx

Yes it is true. I am in collaboration with my Na'vi partner to create a new comic book hero. I will keep you posted on the progress. Looks to be a real winner. Moongirl signing off xxx
The sun has shone this week, but still it has been bitterly cold at night. I sit atop my high stool at work in the midst of many, but still yet alone. Strangers surround me. Eyes watch me. Peripheral vision used by me to watch others without them seeing me watching them. A kindness in amidst it all. Thank you Debbie. Moongirl signing out xxx

We have a Federal Election this month. I am very worried as I can see that so many people are going to vote for the wrong reasons. All of the talk by the opposing political parties has centred around immigration and taxes. My main concerns are for our environment, for a clean Australia, for safe and healthy home grown food, to try to slow the greenhouse effect, to do everything in our power to promote and to keep our earth safe. I know most people will vote for a leader or their party based on their personality or how they speak in debates. None of the contenders have spoken about the things I am most concerned about. It is a worrying time for me. Moongirl signing out. xxx

The moon was so bright last night I could see into the back yard as if it was daylight. There wasn't any movement or sound. All of the night creatures must have been asleep. I couldn't sleep for some reason and so I did some work on the computer. The time moves so quickly when I'm working on the computer and before I know it, the sun is rising. Another warm lovely day today. It is good to be alive. Remembering Margaret, may she rest in peace. Moongirl signing off.

I've been in a different place for some time now. I don't see the world as others see it. Today I live in a dimension between my past and my future. The world of the past goes on living, while I watch from my new existence in a dimension all alone. I can't touch anyone in the old dimension and they can't touch me. I can see them through a blur and I can hear them in an echo, but that is all. I feel like I am in a weigh station, a place you go and wait to be collected before you die.

Yes you've heard it here first. Nick Cave, author, musician,singer, songwriter, movie maker was the leader in a mens' self-help group last night. Well, the truth is I had a dream last night in which Nick Cave was running a self-help group for men in the city. I was there with my husband who I obviously feel needs help otherwise I wouldn't have dreamed it. Why Nick Cave? I don't know why I dreamed Nick Cave as the leader. I do have eminently high regard for this man and his accomplishments, after all he is an extremely remarkable man. Saw his last concert here....WOW!!!! I was recovering from radiation treatment and didn't think I would make it, but I got there and was so happy and glad that I did go. It was the best concert I'd ever been to. Maybe Nick has been contemplating organising a mens' self-help group? Who knows? Signing off, this is Moongirl-In Hindsight.
Life is filled with gaps. Have you ever noticed? It's one of those moments you sit on your couch at home staring at the blank black screen of a television set, wondering what you should do next. It's when you're sitting stationary in your car at a red light waiting for it to turn green. The gaps are everywhere. I always try to fill those gaps with actions of some sort, or at least by thinking about something productive, or pondering on ideas of susbtance that will make a difference in my life or someone else's life. Think about the gaps in other people's lives. Think about the gaps in the lives of children and people confined to wheelchairs who rely on others to help fill their gaps. I wish I could give my legs to one of those children. God bless all the children in wheelchairs.

This really happened the other day. My friend stopped at a red light and the car behind him ran into his vehicle's rear. My friend got out to inspect his car and found that there was very minimal damage. He told the other guy to drive his car around the corner, where it was safer, so that they could exchange details. Just as my friend stopped for the second time, around the corner, this guy runs into the rear of his vehicle again! This time, he pretty much wrote off the entire back end of my friend's car and smashed in the front end of his own car. My friend was amazed when the other driver did a runner and so my friend gave chase. The other driver drove through a red light in the chase and then drove over the median strip and was driving down the wrong side of the road the last my friend saw him. The police have since caught the guy. Get this......he was a taxi driver...not anymore though....lost his licence...and was heavily fined.

Now before I commence this next blog, it must be stated that I in no way condone any kind of violence, violent behaviour, anti-social or aggressive behaviour or road rage. If you have been reading my previous entries you will be slightly familiar and acquainted with the devious, villainous, deranged and diabolical "Road Demon" who watches my every move, who follows me, who taunts me to distraction and who is without question trying to kill me. On this particular day I was driving quite leisurely along a seaside road, the wind in my hair, an angelic halo shining above my head and the peace and calm of a silent motionless sea enhancing my psyche. Out of nowhere he came up behind me, revving his engine, making obscene gestures at me through my rearview mirror. He quickly advanced, overtaking me, and as he passed, in a flurry of anger, he raised the proverbial middle finger to show his distaste of my carefree, calm existence. Now, being the non-violent pacifist that I am, I could have easily ignored this ultra-selfabsorbed-manic-executioner of all things good, but something took hold of me, something...some other being from deep inside of me, an angry, vengeful being that said I must take my revenge. Without stopping to think about consequences, without stopping to let my logical common sense take control, I planted my vengeful foot on a flattened accelerator. I took my position, nudging the back bumper bar of the Road Demon, he could not escape, at every corner at every intersection, I was there right on his tail, glaring at him through his rearview mirror. I could see his eyes widen. I could see that no one had ever reacted to his bad road manners before. I was the first and hopefully the last. He would learn a lesson today. He would learn that it is not polite to give the finger to someone who is at peace with life and all things living. He would learn it is indeed dangerous to awaken a gentle soul from a peaceful slumber. He turned quickly into a driveway and disappeared behind tall trees and an even taller fence. I parked by the kerb across the road, seething, anger filling my veins, my brain, and watched as his head bobbed up over the top of the fence, slightly hidden between trees to see if I was still there. I decided to sit there for a while and make him feel the pain he had caused me. I would never ever do that again. I would never again let my anger escape like that. After all I am a peace loving gentle creature with no wish to harm anyone. Will the Road Demon continue to taunt me? We shall see....we shall see.

After a brief holiday, the road demon returned yesterday to haunt and taunt me on the road. He was driving a big red truck this time, so tall, so long and so wide that I could not see over, around or through it. It blinded me to the point that I found myself sitting out in the middle of a busy highway with angry traffic swerving to miss me. My heart was pumping wildly and my inept capacity to deal with this latest attack left me vulnerable in the extreme. Gosh darn you Road Demon.
