Thursdays short quote: from Robin Roberts from GMA.” Roberts shared a favorite quote with viewers”: “Life provides losses and heartbreak for all of us. But the greatest tragedy is to have the experience and miss the meaning.’ I am determined not to miss that meaning.”
Staring at the blank post reminds me of starting at my life thinking: Now What? Occasionally, the pace slows and I have to take time out to come up with what’s next. Did I mentioned we have new neighbors and that they have a barking dog? I’m glad I’m awake 5:24 am. I think this is the challenge for me this week my mind keeps gravitating torwards what’s wrong and not to the things that are right. Resting my thoughts on things that bug me or situations that I’m worried about and a few things that I feel bad or sad about. Funny when I break it down like that it does take some of the power away seems more amusing when I simply list it out like that. Hopefully a simple shift and I will feel better this week. I think it’s been a little hard moving back to this very small town not much going on here except for the excitement of picking up the mail and seeing the weekly circular for the one grocery store. We spent the summer in Northern Montana back home it was really great seeing friends and familiar faces feeling very comfortable the simple feeling of being home. Navar started school this week so now we are back to the schedule of homework and more homework. When I was a kid I never thought about teachers having homework, boy do they. What’s going on with you and your life this week? Any new news, old news, barking dogs, new dreams, new challenges or maybe just the same ol same ol do tell me something while I sit here looking at the grocery’s new circular.
Several weeks back I remember watching our nephew from Navar’s side of the family, staring a few inches from an ant hill. His ability to be lost in the moment and completely absorbed in watching the goings on with the ants was impressive it made me grateful for those things in life and the activities that are so consuming. It reminded me of how I feel when I’m doing an art project or taking photos getting so lost and engrossed in something where all is well in the world and time seems to disappear. Last night on the News I heard a quick blip about the Universe and finding new stars a quick jump to Nasa. Thinking of the Universe that always cheers me up making my problems and worries seem pretty small and putting things into perspective. An interesting article and a cool video starry night tango.
