knows exactly what to do.”

watchingq“We are not meant to stay wounded.”
Caroline Myss

Many find it difficult to let go of their hurt.
In my younger days, I was like that.
All I did was make the pain worse.
I have learned to let go so my heart can heal.
It ain’t easy but it’s worth the work.

Do you stay wounded or
do you allow healing to happen?

Hope you understand…

Stopping in at the BrewNSpew Cafe for a chat.

The picture below is a container on my balcony.
So far I haven’t seen any hummingbirds.
Last year they visited every day.
I am hopeful that they will soon show up for a drink.

I haven’t been around to visit y’all much the last week or so. I have been taking a bit of a break from the computer. Now that I am retired I have not been very disciplined in the area of time management. When I am on the computer I totally lose track of time.

There are things that need to be done that just don’t get done. There are things I want to do that I don’t seem to have time for. All because I get on the computer and get lost in cyberspace. This is not a good thing. There is more to life than computers.

I will keep writing because I like writing and it keeps me grounded. I will also visit you but may not comment other than to hit the like button. Once I get control of my computer habit I will comment if only to say hello. Until then I am setting a timer and when it dings I log out.

Hopefully, you understand,
I am not ignoring you.

Here’s my story inspired by twaddle

https://pixabay.com/en/cat-grumpy-mood-bad-portrait-face-1950632/

She is one hundred years old and remembering the first time she voted, somewhere around 1939.  She had listened to the candidate’s speeches on the radio and read articles in the newspapers about what they were going to do for the people of this nation,  studied the excellent proposals, and listened to all the admirable promises then voted for who she thought would be the best to lead the country.  Now she is in a voting booth once again considering today’s candidates and their speeches, proposals, promises, and lots of media hype that contradicts everything and can’t help thinking she’s heard it all before.  She’s been around a long time and has had a good life in spite of who she may or may not have voted for and whether or not they did what they said they would do. Really, it seems to her they simply like to hear themselves talk and most of what they say is just twaddle.
