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?  


  1. I know we all feel this way at one time or another. Just go with the flow as this too will pass.

  2. Yup, chipping away at projects while trying to appreciate the good moments - I know just how that feels. I'm sorry your week was so hectic. I hope the next one is better. Have a good weekend! :)

  3. A restful or at least somewhat calmer weekend is a great thing to celebrate. Enjoy yours.

  4. Life can be a crazy whirl, but I have found that as I get older my days may be busy but never frantic like when I was young. Now I enjoy watching the whirl without being in it. Age has its rewards.

  5. I love that song, and I'd forgotten all about it. Thanks for reminding me. May you fly like an eagle.

  6. John Denver's music has always lifted my spirits and made me think about things too. He died too young.

  7. Go with the flow; it's the best way to meet life because heaven knows, it's crazy enough as it is.Great thoughts!

  8. Life can indeed be hectic, but if you keep steadily chipping away at things and maintain a sense of humor, things will be just fine.

  9. Found your blog through the blog hop and just wanted to say hi :) I've been very busy too recently and blogging dropped off the face of the earth so I know where you're coming from but as everyone knows it will all slowly get back to normal again so hopefully try to enjoy this weekend and take time to breathe!
