Wild Horses

Sometimes you just need a place to write down thoughts so they can have a place to live...a place to be out of your mind. This blog is therapeutic at times, it is true.

Having just lived a pretty emotional past couple of weeks, I am so many adjectives. Honored, thrilled, strong, anxious, disappointed, fatigued, disheartened, disgusted...down-right angry. A song entitled Wild Horses, sung by Natasha Bedinfield, has been repeating itself within my inner self, while on the more top layers of my mind issues, problems and tasks, missions are pressing. This song is speaking to me, giving me a place to run and giving me hope that one day, possibly, I'll feel some release from the burdens the Lord has placed upon me, after I have successfully completed what He has asked of me.

Don't get me wrong; I'm privileged to have the missions that He has deemed me qualified to handle, but I'm sure He also knows my weaknesses, my selfishness that I bury deep and struggle against. The fight or flight instinct is there, always deciding, ever whispering.

I feel these four walls closing in
Face up against the glass
I'm looking out.
Is this my life I'm wondering,
It happened so fast
How do I turn this thing around?
Is this the bed I chose to make?
It's greener pastures I'm thinking about
Wide open spaces far away...

All I want is the wind in my hair,
To face the fear but not feel scared...

Wild horses, I wanna be like you.
Throwing caution to the wind, I'll run free, too!
Wish I could recklessly love like I'm longing to...
I wanna run with the wild horses,
Run with the wild horses.

I see the girl I wanna be,
Riding bare-back, care-free.
Along the shore,
If only that someone was me.
Jumping head-first, head-long
Without a thought;
To act and damn the consequence.
How I wish it could be that easy,
But fear surrounds me like a fence.
I wanna break free...

All I want is the wind in my hair,
To face the fear, and not feel scared...

Wild horses, I wanna be like you.
Throwing caution to the wind, I'll run free, too!
Wish I could recklessly love like I'm longing to...
I wanna run with the wild horses,
Run with the wild horses.

I am confident that the Master will give me strength and the words when I need it. He has prepared me for this time, as He always has, of this I have no doubt. And, I am thankful...ever thankful.

But still...

Wild horses, I wanna be like you.

Wow! That song is awesome, my dear friend. Those adjectives, all of them, are so apt this week. I, too, know HaShem has prepared me for this time to be your support and do what must be done. I am honored to be part of the missions He's placed before us. Baruch HaShem.

May the Force be with you. May G-d be with you.

This brings to mind your juggling analogy from an old blog . . . you are much in my thoughts, and in my prayers, as you live among those many adjectives, my friend.

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…


I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.

So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
