Sweeping Around

Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.
Dale Carnegie

It's cold and gray today. The leaves are finally beginning their descent off the trees where I live. You would think I could just relax and curl up with a book, but I've been busy already. A long walk with Bella, trip to the farmer's market and library. Home to make the Midwestern version of goulash and share it with a few hungry people. Final plans for going back to Michigan (I'm flying instead) in December. Ordering the final pieces of my fall wardrobe. Later a harp lesson and time with a special someone. Boredom isn't a word I have in my vocabulary....I'm busy sweeping around with life.

This was all brought on by talking with a friend from childhood about how we cannot believe where we are at in life i.e. changes wrought in the last year. We talked about how we've coped. The answer is to try and take a lesson from the willow tree and bend with the winds that sweep through your life so you don't break. Or it could be we're still the crazy kids we were even after all these years and it keeps letting us make it....
