I'm not here...I'm over there!


Long time no talk to.

To get me back on the path to blogging on a more regular basis, the lovely Leanne at Deep Fried Fruit has invited me into her home for a yakity yak.  Hope you enjoy sitting in with us, and keep an eye out for more blogging from boomerang jane 21.

Competiton Give Away


As a way to celebrate 200 likers on the boomerang jane facebook page, I would like to offer a small give away of the Sunny Daze reusable shopping bag.  As you can see from the beautiful photo above taken by the lovely Leanne over at Deep Fried Fruit, the bags are quite unique in their appearance.

I've read a great many books on the topic of happiness and gratitude in recent years. It's wonderful that there appears to be a definite shift in people's perceptions or expectations of what defines happy-ness*. No longer do we assume that happiness is limited to those with bucket-loads of money, or those who live in a state of constant hysterical laughter.  We have grown enough as a people to understand that different people express and feel happiness in different ways.

T - I - Double Guh - Er!

That Tigger is a very bouncy fella.

I like to think I am part Tigger at times...those times when I'm not all pre-menstrual, peri-menapausal and mid-life crisis-y.  Those times when i'm not all "woe is me", "life is hard" all said with a Scarlet O'Hara type hand motion to my forehead, all dramatic like.

I do have an inner Tigger that likes to spring forth and bounce periodically.  I wish I was Tigger-licious all the time, but I think that would be exhausting (for both me and everyone around me).  But it does feel extraordinarily invigorating to get my 'bounce' on after coming through the grungy dark period of the past few weeks.

One is the lonliest number

With so many people in the world, how is it one can find themself feeling so lonely?

We're a planet comprised of 7 billion people. How is it then that I sometimes feel so alone? And if feeling lonely was't bad enough, throw into that mix the fact that i feel like a foreigner in my own land.  Have you ever had one of those days  where you feel like you are speaking a language so alien that even men from Mars and Women from Venus can't understand you? I have recently read that that whole Mars/Venus thing has been scientifically proven as boloney...we're just different. Well duh!  Do you ever have one of those moments the minute you open your mouth, you feel people are instantly tuning out and hearing only "blah, blah, blah" instead?

Ah! Young sweet & dysfunctional are thee!

Ah! Young naive, so immature, so unsophisticated, yet ever so charming!

Who hasn't been blessed to witness the giggling prowess that is the 15 year old teenage girl in pure, utter, blushing-because-he-looked-at-me, undying lurve? Or the teenage boy in all his pimply, voice-breaking glory, professing everlasting adoration to his I-can't-imagine-ever-living-without-you first beau.
