The X season

Good Day to you all... I hope that wherever you are the season is cheery and warm, happy and breezy.  It is the X season!   Xmas is everywhere.  Xmas trees are being sold in parking lots, malls and business are decked out in garlands of bright shining lights and the music from present and past seasons that are played at this time of the year, are filling the air in most public areas.  You can’t miss that this is the month of December, last month of the year, and where the shops are geared up to sell, sell, sell.

Certain agencies take advantage of the season, and spend dollars putting ads on that ask for your money for strangers in way off countries.  And  not to leave the animals out, some  post e and share awful and terrible pictures of cruelty to domestic animals, looking for money for their needs.


Any and all material/cosmetic/organic etc. you could dream of, or want are being presented on a platter for you to drool or dream over.  The pressure is applied from all quarters, credit cards are getting a work out everyone gets caught up.  Its hard not to enjoy the gaiety and colourful temptations in some way or another.

(well OK, on the telly)  Xmas shows were musical and variety specials featuring talent that was there to entertain.  We went to bed with dreams of candy canes and lingering sounds of laughter from the evening of shared fun watching the one television in the house.


When we had news to share with walked over to our friends place, no matter the weather, to share our news.  Or took up pen/pencil and wrote a letter with all our news.  If we took pictures we had to wait for the all the film to be used up and then taken in for developing.  It could take weeks..  Think about it, could we do that today?


Would this be sufficient today?  

Love is a precious gift,  it one that we can give personally, from the heart, true love is unconditional,  When we say I love you, we are saying we care, and will always care, no matter if that person is with us or not.  We care for the other  person’s happiness.  Love with all your heart (sincerity)

And for you who love a traditional song…..  =^_^=

I appreciate each and every one of you

young/old, you are the treasures in my world

God Bless you each and all

For you are what makes this world a better place

We are all ONE

The Jitterbug caused scandals, it was called dirty dancing, students caught dancing the Jitterbug were likely to be banned from school .. serious stuff.

Did you smile?  Interesting that when this dance came along and was very popular, it was suffered terrible put downs.  It was in its hay day well before I was out dancing, but  in my mid teens we did versions of this dance, and I loved it.   I remember such moves, when you had a dance partner that was capable of really “letting go” we “went all out”..  In my day it was jiving, swing dancing, I think they did the hand jive in Grease.   We would go dancing every night if we could.  Of course we often had dance floors in the restaurants (hang outs) and either live music or a rocking juke box.



I’ve provided a how to at the bottom of this blog for those of you interested in trying out some of the moves =^_^=  (Jeff & Amanda Miller)

Remember when long hair on men hit the “scene” .. – wow.. scandal.. tongues wagged, heads shook in disbelief.

The music had changed by then too.  One scandal that caused major problems when they made their debut Jeans  and while not  considered major problems now, they can be seen at times as being inappropriate…



All this to say, that when we come across something unfamiliar, we often take a “negative” view, “just because”… we don’t allow ourselves time to take in the “new” concept, item, experience.  If we reflect on the above examples I’ve used, today a lot of what was a scandal is common, everyday stuff.  If you think about past events,experiences in your life, whether a few years, a decade, whatever, you will likely discover that you did take steps out side the box on more than one occasion.

Changes are what makes life interesting.  Scandal comes in many forms, often it is a personal perspective that influences your reaction. =^_^= to a new idea, or a different version of something you already know. As we work towards self-improvement, experiment with thinking “outside the box”.


Stay a float as long as you can!
