Now I’ll have to repack all to those  flamingoes by tonight if I am to make it to Syracuse tomorro,”  She began picking up the plastic birds…” ” Hey,” shouted a guy pointing at her coming from the Stoned Mermaid Club,” I remember you…..”  She turned as he got out of his yellow camaro….

Zen And The Art Of Twisting

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

As I sit here and post Twist and Shout with JOHN LENNON is on the radio ………synchronicity! The twist is a perfect companion for zennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

Lower those eye  lids stand up and twist – 1. bend knees and elbows, then spin balls and heels of feet as you to the same to your upper arms  Now variate —-1,2,3,4 make up your own moves!!

Do this for 60 seconds and watch the world fall away into zen-onic bliss (I just made up that word!! the zen-twist is working!!)



The twist[a] is a dance that was inspired by rock and roll music. From 1959 to the early sixties it became the first worldwide dance craze, enjoying immense popularity among all people and drawing fire from critics who felt it was too provocative. It inspired dances such as the Jerk, the Pony, the Watusi, the Mashed Potato, the Monkey, and the Funky Chicken, but none were as popular

Pam looked to the side of the path she was on in her local forest of choice and noticed a tiny fairy sitting on a rock doing her nails.  At least it appeared to be a fairy.  It had transaparent wings that fluttered every so often. It had a pink jacket on and maroon velvet pants. The shoes it wore were gold and curled up ending with a silver bell that tinkled as it recrossed it’sr legs. Pam stopped walking to get a better look. when …..

Squirrels ! Mentally Astute!!

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

So I was sitting in my garden watching the birds and squirrels gorge on steamy water and b-seed when I noticed that the squirrels picked the best bits of food and hid them here and there before eating .  But the birds ate and ate until they lay flat on their back with little bird feet up in the air saying Ahhhhhhhhhhhh…..

So does this mean that squirrels are of a more complex nature mentally looking ahead to make sure there would be treats in the afternoon stored away??

That is your ponder-ance for tonight!! Squirrel-dom vs bird-dom.
