Short note and search terms

Just a short post to let you all know I am still around. I have officially started my new job, and I am really seeing what a huge project this is. I am also seeing what a quantum leap I took just by accepting the position. I have lived on Social Security Disability my entire adult life, and I went from that to THIS at age 45. It's surreal to me, and I am enjoying every last minute of it. It's a challenge like no other, and I am learning things about myself that I never had the chance to know before. And that's only after the first week!

The support I am getting is uncanny. It's like people are seeing this in a way that goes far beyond the present moment, and for some, beyond this present lifetime. And then others just DON'T get it at all! Blank stare. Utter silence. There's no in-between response. It feels like something strange is going on in the "other" realms. The non-responses are coming from people I never guessed would have them. It's not upsetting at all, please don't get me wrong, but it's observable, curious, and amusing.

This is an amazing thing we are doing in Georgia. I am still in utter AWE that it's actually happening. I've dreamed about this for years. Eventually, I will post the actual dream I had in 1992. Maybe next post...

:deep breath:

I posted a video of Charles Willis on Faces of Recovery. Charles is one of my favorite people, and now a collegue. That's the beauty of this job -- I get to work with my friends.

Okay, now onto superficial things...

Call me a geek, but I am fascinated by the search terms people type into Google, which leads them to Rayne's World. Here's my most current list from the last week. Bye for now...

sweet Jayme you are living the surreal life!

And I can totally imagine it's awesome and I'm sooo happy for you.

Jayme said...

Awwww... thanks Gianna. You are one of the supporters who truly see the depths of this. And I've never even met you! The people who have known me for years and years are the ones who don't get it -- except my sister Jody and my best friend Jodie. Thank you for your encouragement and your belief in me.

I believe this is the "ultimate" job for you just from what you shared with me about your time at Cedar Hill. This is an opportunity for you to finally respond to your "calling." Your breath of life was sustained by the respite care you once received...and I have hope that other's will experience a similar life renewal through the Georgia Respite Care Center that you will be directing. Blessings of body, mind and spirit be with you.
In Peace & Wellness,

Sue, you are so right about Cedar Hill. It is the templaate I am using to set the energy of the Respite Center. My time there was life changing, and by all traditional criteria, I needed to be in a hospital at that time. But the people at Cedar Hill knew nothing about mental illness and everything about respite, sanctuary, and spiritual empowerment. I tranformed in 3 days, and I have never been the same since. And YOU were there to take me home when it was all over. That was incredible. My ultimate hope is that others will have a similar experience at the Respite Center.
