change

There are big changes in the wind. Good ones. They’ll be more bloggable tomorrow than they are today; but I will say that I have, finally, taken giant steps in improving my quality of life quotient.

And even in advance of those changes I’m already feeling like I’m drifting up, out of an extended period of restlessness; the one you may or may not have caught me moaning about in this space in the past while.  No doubt it’s the thing that’s behind this rather unfocused state and lack of bloggerly ambition. 

I’m a sucker for change, I’ve always been.  I am not a person who takes comfort in sameness. If I’m not growing or evolving or changing course, I end up feeling like I’m turning around in circles.  I find it hard to look beyond into the road.  Sometimes it’s a feeling of panic; like there’s nothing to write because I’m not even two feet from where I was yesterday.

Today I’m two feet beyond yesterday.  Tomorrow it’ll be ten feet.  

I’m not meaning for this to be a “teaser,” the cliff-hanger to bring you back next season.  (Though for those of you I was losing because of my inactivity here, I hope you’ll come back next season.)

Most people, and certainly most bloggers, understand those reasons why a thing isn’t bloggable.  Until it is, enjoy one of my daughter Carly’s favourite songs.  I always loved it when she played this song.
