Today's Dance

I shall not write today about my feelings. Today I’ll take some room to breathe. I’ll do my work and pay attention to the things that need my brain. I shall not worry over matters that cannot be fixed or cannot change. I’ll use my energy instead to help the folks I know do what needs getting done.

Today I’ll read. I’ll visit old friends. I’ll be a person, just the same. I'll let myself, be me.

I shall not write about my feelings.

But when no one’s looking, . . . I might dance alone, just for me.

Sounds like a plan, well the visiting people part. Anyone that has seen me dance would not endorse my dancing

Have fun Liz getting out of the usual things someone does.

Hi janus
Great I'll get some cold ones and fire up the grill for you.

Dawn said...

More breathing, less worry.
My, that sounds like a good thing.
May I have this dance?

ME Strauss said...

Hi Hans,
Thank you. You are a wonder and a gift to me! I will think of you while I have fun.

ME Strauss said...

Good morning, Dawn,
Yes, you may dance as well. It's a good thing to breathe and just be yourself. I think I shall do it all day . . .

IMHO,people in general don't take enough "just for me" days.
Sadly, myself included.
Wonderful idea.

Hi Michael,
I took this and wrote this because a person confused me. I thought the best choice was to let him unconfuse himself. It was good choice I think. :)

Hi Liz,

Long time old friend, (in blog years, that is.)

I just had a chat with Garnet. He has a neat little link on his profile, which he attributes to you, (Our Grande Dame of internet hospitality) and I have decided to add a similar hostess welcome to my site.

Is it not wonderful to know the little seeds you plant into the universe, bloom and grow and spread?

Kudos girl. Hope all is well with you and yours.

I have no idea what little trick it is you might be talking abou. :)

So how was your day? You worked? read? And then, dit you danced?
I danced a bit tonight, but it was at the end of a charity walk. It was fun!

Hi Melly,
Yeah, I did dance a bit when no one was looking. It was fun. I read and took a nap too. I could make a habit of this. :)
