Spontaneously I began to sing

Songs have a way of connecting with the past…

Driving cross-country yesterday…raining…an oldie drifted into my mind…spontaneously I began to sing…not something I do often.

In an instant I was back to a time, a long time ago…a young man without a care…doing what he loved…whatever it was.

It was the ‘without a care’ part that brought me back to the present.

“When was the last time I felt like that?” I thought to myself. I couldn’t remember.

Something was missing…clearly…what wasn’t clear was what?

Do you ever have moments like that?

An unwritten story…

The present isn’t always as cosy as the past…that’s where daydreaming comes in handy.

Perhaps because looking back we know how things turned out, it feels safe…looking ahead is an unwritten story, how does it end…a mystery.

Doubt hangs low…the search for inner peace calls.

A well-worn shoe…

I’d settle for a quiet sense of achievement, arriving somewhere…mentally, or physically, a feeling of completion…the comfort of a well-worn shoe.

The new comes with edges and corners…apprehension, fear even…but not without excitement.

Thought in action…

For the longest time I thought comfort was something external…wisdom now tells me otherwise…it’s begins with thoughts…it’s those that become things.

Have you ever had the same thoughts over and over again, getting nowhere?

A reminder of thought in action…if I change the thought, replaced it with another…how would that change things? Depends…but change it would be.

A team effort… 

What makes me happy is generosity of spirit…helping others without expectation…giving.

After all, life on Earth is a team effort…what would we achieve if it wasn’t for the knowledge, invention, and support of others?

A good thought to take for a walk...

Perhaps you’ll burst into song…
