Small Celebrations, June 19, 2015



Today I am ‘Celebrating the Small Things’ in this delightful blog hop, started by VikLit and now run by Lexa Cain, our fearless leader and her two wonderful co-hosts L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and Katie @ TheCyborgMom.

Today (Friday, June 19) I am celebrating surviving a hectic week at work, the advent of the weekend, and the feeling of renewal that has come to me in the past few weeks.  It has been a time of hurry, bother, harassment (as in crazy busy), and wondering why on earth I’m doing this nonsense when I would so much rather be somewhere else doing something else.

John Denver was associated too much with ‘Thank God I’m a Country Boy’ to be taken seriously by many.  He had a lot of depth to him, and he died too young.  His song “Looking for Space” expresses how I sometimes feel:

What’s the point of puzzling over things?  the lyrics express it well:

              On the road of experience, join in the living day.
              If there’s an answer it’s just that it’s just that way,


That’s good enough for me.  I just keep on keeping on, chipping away at projects, savoring the good moments, and trying to convey the peace.

What are you celebrating?
