Thanks for popping in. You know you got a hiding, when the dentist calls you the day after your procedure to make sure you’re okay! Easy does it, and fingers crossed it will all heal as it is supposed to. I just have to be patient, right? Be a good patient too. English is such a fun language, isn’t it?! So I have to be a patient patient then! Fair enough. Erik too. You know. The cat. The twin…
Look at these two!! I mean, they’re 2 years older now, but still wonderful.
Erik and I have been hanging out together, because of course, he had a very narrow escape before Christmas, and he’s under house arrest until the vet says he’s fit to roam again. His brother Ragnar is up and out at the crack of sparrows, but young Erik has to stay back with Mum. The vet managed to save his leg and foot, and he is doing remarkably well. But I won’t let him out yet, because the pad on the paw is still not right. It will take a little longer. So I was inspecting the damaged paw today, and thought what a miracle really. If you had seen the state of the foot a month ago, you would have said “Never will that repair itself.” But it has, you know.
Which brings me to today’s Quote #5
There’s an adage I like too, which is generally attributed to Groucho Marx…
There’s that quirky English language again! …heals…heels… I love English. Wound as in Erik’s foot, wound as in past tense of wind the clock! But hang on! Is that wind me up or put the wind up me?! What a challenge to folks learning English as a foreign language!
But back to today’s quote.
I know I’m taking the Time heals all wounds very literally here, looking at Erik’s foot and my tooth, that we often associate that quote with heartbreak and pain. Time is a great healer, isn’t it? God, I remember when I was much younger, feeling such pain and devastation, and at the time I thought it would never go way. But it did. And the inflicter of the pain? Hasn’t had a great life. Pretty rough actually.
If you, like me, have been had over, taken for a mug , abused or left in the lurch, then the second part of the quote will resonate with you. It’s all about karmic debt. You don’t have to do a thing; just walk away, get on with your life, give Time time, and let it work its magic. Because it is true. TIME DOES WOUND ALL HEELS too – eventually! Oh sweet karma. They may think they got away with it. But they didn’t. We get away with nothing in this life.
Here’s a neat frameless stencil project. CLICK HERE Texture paste dragged through on black card. Left to dry. Chopped up. Perfect.
I really need to finish prepping the TV show demos! Sunday 3-5 pm Create & Craft
