Hello and welcome! Come on in, choose a mug from the Beatles collection with other choices available, like Pink Floyd, Okemo Ski Resort and Edward Gory (it’s not batman!). I’ll fill said cup with a strong French Roast. Or perhaps with a nice tea of cocoa. For once, however, I’m not going to say you need a warm beverage for it isn’t frigid. Maybe cool for some of you, and very windy, but it didn’t get below freezing last night!
If you’ve had coffee with me in the past you may realize that I’m down on Cape Cod. “What”, I hear you exclaim, “I thought you were in Oklahoma!” Well, my business trip got cancelled at the last minute. So, home I stayed. Well, until I came down to the Cape.
This was a busy week. After I found out I was staying home I decided to make the most of it. I got quite a bit of work done around the house. I have a huge amount to do, but I can at least see progress.
I’ve also been doing a little drawing and playing piano and keyboards. I’ve even done some writing. I try to post a new short story every week but missed two in a row. This week there was a new short story as well as several poems.
For the last few weeks I’ve been exploring “The Old Art of Trent”. I’ve been listening to music I played or wrote ten, even twenty, years ago. I’ve also been digging up old drawings, like the ones I posted on Thursday.
As far as the blog goes, I will say the slow down both continues and is over. What I mean by that is I think I’ve found some balance and have struck a new norm. I won’t be reading as much as I did in the past, but will try to stay up with some of my favorites and hit everyone once in a while. If I don’t, well, it’s not the end of the world and nobody will shoot me.
I rarely bring up religion on my blog, but I am Christian and Sunday is the most important holiday of the Christian calendar, so I will say Happy Easter to all of my Christian readers. I also want to wish my Jewish readers who are now celebrating Passover a joyous holiday.
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it is finally Spring, and it actually feels like spring now! One thing about both the holiday and about spring in general is “renewal”. Even more than the New Years this is a time when we think of renewal. The world is turning green again. The birds have returned. Animals will soon be giving birth. It is the season of renewal and I feel it. It is time to wake up from the cold winter and start living again.
I hope you all have had a great week and that next week is even better. Thanks for stopping by for some coffee and a chat.
