Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I can get you nice strong French Roast, cup of tea or other beverage. As some of you may be able to tell by the graphic at the top, I am on Cape Cod this weekend. I’m sure some of you may be a little confused, but, in case you missed it, I have spruced up the place this last week. More about that later.
It’s been another busy week. Aren’t they all? There is work, doing stuff around the house and play. Yes, I take time to play, which for me means playing my musical instruments. After my recent studio rearrangement I have found my creativity rejuvenated and have been playing like mad. Well, like very happy, but at a manic pace.
On the blogging front I’m sure you notice the new theme. I have a love hate relationship with it. There are a few things I’d like different, but I’m not sure if they bother me enough to go out and upgrade so I can change them with CSS. I’ve actually seen quite a few blogs doing revamps this week. Something must be in the air. Perhaps it’s that we are on the verge of a new season.
Also if you’ve been paying attention you may have noticed I’ve posted a lot this week. I started with a rare Sunday post. My puppy Idina was frightened by fireworks on Saturday night so I wrote her a lullaby, which I posted on Sunday. For media Monday I put up my art song “Black Eyed Susan” again. I made some major changes so I don’t call it a repost. On Tuesday I put up a reminder for this weeks 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion event. I usually post poetry on Tuesdays, but since I’d posted a poem on Sunday and on Monday I decided it wasn’t needed. On Wednesday i posted a picture of my reorganized studio. On Thursday I had two posts. First I put up a repost about music challenges I used to participate in when I followed a music forum. Later, after I revamped my blog, I put up a post asking what people thought. My Friday Fiction was a flash fiction story inspired by a photograph. And then today I put up a post for the 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion event.
I’ve had a personal vision of compassion that I’ve been sharing on most of my posts on the subject:
Empathy is the glue that holds society together and compassion is what makes a group of people a civilization. Without holding our hands out to our fellow humans we become savages. We are all in this together, in a closed system, so we must all help each other. How lonely life must be for those selfish people who don’t realize this simple truth! How lonely for anyone who doesn’t realize that all are our brothers and sisters! How lonely must the self-righteous be!
