Thanks for popping in. Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Well, washing machine head in full spin today! Just cannot seem to settle. All the rationalizing which I am usually good at, is not helping today. So I’ll just accept that this is how it is at this moment, that it is quite understandable really, given everything that is going on, or not going on for that matter, and that one thing at least IS for certain:
THIS TOO SHALL PASS
Strange how the head can turn. Yesterday, I was driving home from my parents, full of beans, having had a lovely time with them.
Mmm thought I, let’s listen to some Christmas music in the car, get in the spirit of things. Mariah Carey, All I want for Christmas. Love that tune! 30 seconds in and I was howling! And I don’t mean singing along! I hit me that the kids aren’t coming home – had to turn it off.
Do certain songs get to you too? Even after decades, a certain song can instantly transport me back to a different time and place. It’s like sitting in a Time Machine and unlocking memories in a part of the brain which otherwise stays firmly shut.
Now take Happy, by Pharrell Williams. The minute that songs starts, I leap about. Can’t help myself. Have to dance and sing.
So guess what. I CHOOSE to dance and sing, not wail.
Sorry Mariah. Pharrell wins this Christmas.
Which song does that to you? Makes you want to dance and hop about? Madness “One Step Beyond” is another one. It’s like I’ve been plugged in.
Time for me to go in the kitchen and hop about to some music. That‘ll work!
Love and hugs
