Wow, here and gone......even late to blog about Thanksgiving...
The end of 2013 is approaching and I am flabergasted at where it all went, once again. The pace of life just seems to rachet forward with each passing year. Is it like this for everyone? Does it ever slow down? Is it good to slow down? A constant pace seems to keep my mind wiley and aware.....I often fear that allowing too much idle time will cause my brain to start slipping into oblivian. Don't want that. At the same time my body and soul are screaming for a break. Settle down, whats the rush? is something I hear a voice saying from time to time. Duties wittingly keep the pace moving out of fear of failure. Duties are devised out of fear of complacency. Complacency is a dread just avoided when time actually permitts. Old haunts, like fear of the dark, sharks and being overtaken by evil spirits, remain at bay as long as my brain keeps moving. Resident evils are like creepy little virus or bacteria lying in wait for just the weak moment to propel into mature manifestations. Keep moving, keep thinking of completing duties....do it do it do it!
So, cook the turkey...at least enjoy that bit of fairly idle activity, although still moving mentally without too much idle with an in the moment conviction. Just do that! How good and relieving is that right?
Ahh, the tender juicy white meet, smooth as silk mashed potatos coverd in passed down secret gravy, cranberry with ribs, steamed brokly just for kicks and all the other loosly alligned side contributions....love that day so much.....so full I can barley make it to bed.....pumkin pie smothered with whipped cream is the last nail in the coffin before escaping for a quick hybernation passing into a less full day.
Relax not....Christmas is rapidly approaching.....holiday fest will keep your pace brisk and even add a tinge more stress with all the obligations meeted out by our childhood friend St Nick!
When will it all slow down? 2014, 2015, 2016......stay sane my firends!
Turkey week is upon us! Wow! Is this year of 2012 really coming to a close?
It seemed just yesterday I was eyeing the end of 2011 looking forward to a more forgiving prosperous year.
It has been that, a better year, thank God....better business climate, less natural and manmade disasters, heck, there has even been more enthusiasm in every voice that I listen to.
"I can see light at the end of the tunnel"
"finally got my dept paid off"
"my inventory is down making new orders necessary"
Let's keep the ball rolling and spread the sunshine....let greed, of all sorts, be gone with the years of the past...talk it up!
