When I was in Croatia, we were looking for a place to lunch. We came upon this tavern which had this raucous celebration in progress.
Thanks Nancy Merrill for providing the prompt. https://nadiamerrillphotography.wordpress.com/
I have been away for the last twelve days. And I have been on a deliberate writing fast. I know that in diet, fasting can speed up your metabolism and give all your organs a bit of a rest. So, I decided to use this time to see if the writing muse needed a break and will reward me with lots of creative moments going forward.
So, I celebrate the beginning of 12 days spent in paradise with my wonderful husband. It wasn’t such an onerous place to fast. I even inherited a pet who I named Igor (even though his presence every morning was a bit unnerving).
And I celebrate the end of vacation and my writing fast and a return to you my gentle readers. I have missed our conversations.
This has been a terrible week. Our family is experiencing a terrible problem which is shaking the foundation of love upon which our family is built.
I thought that we were closed to resolving this problem this week and was looking forward to celebrating an easing of the small earth quakes that keep shaking my family’s foundation.
I was sort of like the road runner jogging along, keeping my head turned behind me, putting distance between me and the threat when I went over a new cliff with arms and legs all akimbo.
It is grey and dreary here in New Jersey this morning and I prayed for a reason to smile. And them out of the dreariness I thought of my beloved Grandfather and how much he looked like Jimmy Durante. Then I stumbled upon this video of Jimmy Durante singing with Louis Armstrong. Now this could not have been a more perfect balm for my soul. Jimmy who always brings Grandpop back to life and Louis who is my all time favorite. So, I hope this works because I hope to share my smile with you.
Wishing you many reasons to smile,
THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR PROVIDING THIS OPPORTUNITY TO REFLECT UPON THE GOODNESS OF THE WEEK.
I have had many reasons to celebrate this week.
I took this photo on an early morning walk this week. You can’t help but want to thank God for opening your eyes to such beauty.
Wishing you many moments of beauty,
Life got a little better this week. Celebrating got easier.
Wishing you all many Celebrations both large and small,
