It’s Five Word Friday on this side of the globe. JB did a brilliant post yesterday capturing five things she had learned that week. My comment to her had been that I had learned the joy of writing a page a day of my story. I mean, by then, I had consistently done 2 days in a row. And today will be my 3rd day.
I do have a problem with long term commitment so every day I succeed is something new. However the process is not at all painful as feared. I discovered it was a irrational fear blocking my progress. When I realized my fear was – what if it is crap?- my response became – who cares-.
Oh – yes back to Five Word Friday. The fact is I wrote this: IF I COULD GO BACK – the other day and my mind was full of ideas: Learn a musical instrument, and a second language, finish my degree, – lots of things.
Then the Five Words you see in the title happened today that caused all else to pale.
MY BLOUSE IS UPSIDE DOWN
And I wore it out, in public, for three hours, to meet friends for coffee and to take a stroll downtown and must admit I was feeling pretty good.
Then a sweet young lady, younger than thirty, walking along the street with her two young children approached me. I knew English was her second language when she gently said, pointing at my blouse, ’You are upside down. your blouse is upside down.
Sure enough I looked at it upside down and it was inside out.
Such things are amusing to my mind. And of course I could not change it until I finished this blog.
But now on this sunny pleasant afternoon I am off to change. And complete my one page for today. And then congratulate myself with a glass of wine and ignore the dust and laundry until tomorrow.
So from soon to be right side up North of 43 I bid you all a lovely first Friday of the month!
