I was prepared for a really insightful post. I had rehearsed the words and sequence in my head as I've been trying to be the LOTUS FLOWER while all these dark and mysterious events have been unfolding here and in the lives of some of my friends.
But then, as always, MUSIC has come and saved YOU all from that lengthy reading. And not only is it a band, but they're KIWIS and young little chums at that!!! Where do they get this material from?
I think the artists in us all can appreciate the video (there are 3 I found for this song..but this my favourite) and the chorus.
CUT OFF YOUR HANDS "expectations"
So I've been quiet this week. A friend has broken the cardinal rule of the "INVITE" and I don't think I'm ready to forgive her, consequently, it's been at the forefront of my thinking. Another friend has explored her....hmmmm, let's just say "darker" side of her personality and has come away wondering how that experience has enriched her life.
And here I am, listening, giving advice when it's been sought (not always followed, mind you LOL), trying to sympathise/empathise, coming up with alternative solutions, asking questions to let THEM find their own answers. It's been exhausting but I think they both have come out the LIGHTER side.
It's been a welcomed distraction from what goes on HERE everyday. But now I have a heady day of baking and cooking and freezing. HAHA!! It gets you somehow, doesn't it????
ONTO SOMETHING MORE CREATIVE....
I made some earrings on Wednesday!! I don't have pics yet but I've just crossed something else of THE LIST of crap to do before I'm 40....
The canvas background has been adorned and I have 10 kits (I'm excited) of them to organise in 4 weeks. I think I can do that. No photos yet....the canvas was snaffled and displayed before I could. Next week maybe.
I hate to admit to this...but I actually liked this movie. Thankfully, the friends I completely "poo-pooed" this movie to (I can be a complete literary snob sometimes) don't read this blog (heh). We have this wonderful little cinema called "The Blue Room" in Rosalie. Seats 40 and like Gold Class can order food and alcohol to be served during the movie ... but it's only $10!!!!! Maybe I enjoyed this movies because of the 2 wines before it began and I was sitting next to Tess who is an ABBA tragic so her enthusiasm was a little infectious. Lena organised it and there must have been about 15 of us.
Another nice distraction in my week. :-)
It was nice seeing a few new "faces" visit here while Charm was crashing blogs all over the world.
Promise next post will have more LOOKSEY stuff and less ramblings by me....
brighter and buoyant....
