I started this blog for relaxation (although sometimes, especially when WordPress makes changes, relaxation is not the word I use), but now, over 500 posts later, I look at my followers and views with wonder.
As a single mom with Fibromyalgia, raising a child with Autism and other health concerns, relaxation is important because most days I feel like Wile E. Coyote with his tiny umbrella.

I’ve learned a lot, but the best part has been my dear readers.
You make it all worth while.
Finding each other in this giant virtual haystack is astonishing and awesome.
I’d hoped it would also lead to fame and fortune; that part hasn’t panned out, but who knows?
Till then, still broke and just a tad less obscure.1thanks6I’m thankful for all the awards I’ve received, but narrowing down other nominees has become too challenging as I find more and more astonishing bloggers whose insights thrill, stories chill, make me cry, laugh, smile, remember, make me think, wonder, and dream.
I love that you think of me, but my time and energy are limited so I’ll use them by responding to your comments and leaving some on your blogs, Tweeting, Retweeting, and sharing your posts.

I’d like to thank some of my most stalwart supporters, those of you who follow, take the time to press the Like button; who humble me by reblogging; Tweet and Retweet, share on Facebook, Google+, Reddit, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr and more. I find myself looking forward to your posts, comments, insights, loving your stories, glowing…
I just want to soak them all up.1bean2

GROUNDHOG DAY

groundhog6groundhog6groundhog6Love it or hate it, I think Groundhog Day is hilarious.

Love it or hate it, I think Groundhog Day is hilarious.

This is basically A Christmas Carol twisted around to be repetitious, the day itself is the visiting ghosts who teach Phil Connors (Bill Murray) what he’s done wrong with his life and how to fix it. We love a good story of redemption.

It could also be seen as an allegory for human history, we just keep doing the same things over and over and over again…we just haven’t learnt the lessons yet.groundhog1Any way you see it, it’s hilarious and evocative.

The original ideas told the audience the reason Connors/Murray was reliving Groundhog Day over and over again, but it was decided it would be best to give no explanation. Good choice.groundhog2

GD is such a pop culture phenom that many people, including the military refer to an unpleasant situation that loops as Groundhog Day.

I think many of us have experienced our own Groundhog Day where we’re caught in a loop until we realize why and break free.

This is really the ultimate self-improvement film.

So whether groundhogs see their shadow or not today, some form of Spring is coming at some point; unless you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, then you know…Winter Is Coming. groundhog3
