In life nothing is ever “simple”… the lake may look calm, but under the surface there is a multitude of activity in all shapes and sizes. Decide what it is important, and let it happen. Find a way. Stay positive.
Does the past ever walk up to you and say…”hi” “remember me” – when you clean up/ clear out, boxes are found, files, old correspondence, pictures. There are a couple of you that have traced your families back, I am fascinated when I read the detail and the wonderful stories you uncover. In my world, I live in the moment (most of the time)..so when my extraordinary friend (she loves organizing, sorting and the like) (like.. there is such a person in my life…!!!) came down and said,” you should look at these”(she had opened an old briefcase** she came across when trying to put some order to what remains of my husband’s offices …
Like the plant, I just keep on trucking… I like space to move ahead, explore, to live each moment as it comes. Sometimes these is a lot of “happening” all at once, and then there are dry spells… always there is change.
I have around me, beautiful gardens and landscapes, I appreciate them, I do… but I am the plant that grows in the cracks along the roadside, or in unwanted/unused spaces. “When there is a will, there is a way”.. the picture brought back memories.. long road trips to hotels/nightclubs in distant places. We played 6 nights of the week, traveling on the 7th day to the next gig, unless we were booked for 2 weeks. We were a “show band”.. lead guitar, bass, and drums.. side men were added depending on the lounge or club we were playing and what the venues wanted. At one place, we even arrived to find that there was a stripper booked at the same time.. her back up didn’t show. we got to play for her… now that was a hoot!
Today is the 21st. there is a service this evening at the church 7 pm. Service of Appreciation. – When we live each day doing our best, and being “present”… there are few regrets.. just memories that help make the person you are today.
Thank you thank you, thank you. Let’s live with gratitude towards everyone and everything all day today.Perfect Liberty 2022.21
wish I still I had the dress to see if I can still wear it.. yeah sometimes the ego just won’t shut up.
** I have yet to really look at all that is in the briefcase, I will..

Excellent booking timing on someone’s part 🙂
certainly opened my eyes and she was one terrific gal, actually a Univeristy student making pin money.
Glad I was able to bring back some good memories for you.
Fun look-back… what a life that must have been!
LOL I’ll tell you .. I learned a lot about myself!!
Finding old letters, cards, and photographs are like stepping into a Time Machine. 🌟✨💫
I still have yet to go back and delve into the contents of the briefcase. saving it.. I learned a lot the years I was on that assignment. I had no idea what life on the road was like, prior to that .. I worked white collar contracts.. Life is always interesting wether or not it is your planning or not…
Agreed. It’s often in the “unplanned” where the adventure lies. 🤔💫
good morning YOU.. happy smiles being sent your way.
