I appreciate all the kind remarks and comments I’ve received over the past few months since the launch of my weekly blog. Thank you all, very much.
I’ve been doing all the talking lately, so this week—and into the future if you feel the notion—I would love to hear more from you. Tell me what you think about hummingbirds being so trusting when they are trapped that they’ll let a person hold them and carry them to safety. Do you have any stories about wild birds or animals who trusted you? Tame ones, too.
What about people who inspired you? I had people in my life who encouraged me, made me believe I could, when I thought I probably couldn’t. Do you, or did you, have a friend, a teacher, a mentor, anyone to show you the way, so you wouldn’t have to carve a new path on your own? Those people are blessings in our life we might not even recognize or appreciate at the time. If they are still available to you, now might be a good time to thank them. I mean this sincerely, don’t wait until it’s too late. I have learned never to let words of appreciation go unsaid.
Speaking of teamwork, have you learned it’s better to cooperate with others of like mind rather than struggle alone to re-invent the wheel? That one takes some doing if you like to work on your own, but trust me, brainstorming opened new avenues of possibilities I couldn’t imagine before. Plus, you get the added bonus of friendships. I would love to hear how you accomplished something greater by working in partnership with someone else.
Do you have a favorite story or legend that captured your imagination? I loved the stories of Merlin and King Arthur when I was growing up. How about you?
My favorite musical instrument to play is the banjo. Love bluegrass. I also like to play Irish fiddle music. What’s your favorite instrument (whether you can play it or not!)?
Last month, I wrote about my favorite pet names. I forgot that it was two generations ago (yikes!) that I saw the movie A Streetcar Named Desire. It’s the one where Marlon Brando yelled “Stella!” I thought it was a pretty good name for calling a dog to come back to me, but I realized that many of you probably never heard of the author, Tennessee Williams, or the 1950s movie. Time does fly!
So, these are my thoughts for this week’s posting. I hope you enjoyed spending this time with me, and I would very much like to hear what you have to say.
