Part 2 of 3 from the series. Part 1 was yesterdays post.
There is a line in a poem which goes: Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we first learn to deceive, by Walter Scott.
I honestly can’t remember how many times or even where I’ve seen that line, but as I sat thinking about how to start this post, it came floating from the depths of my mind. It feels like a good line to start with so I’m going with it.
Linda from litebeing chronicles set up a wonderful challenge to coincide “With Mercury going retrograde next Monday on October 21, 2013 and a new series of eclipses starting this Friday October 18, 2013 in Aries, and then on Sunday November 3, 2013 in Scorpio“. I decided to take part in it.
The challenge was:
1- Find an item you never use or never wear but you feel very drawn to. It could be an article of clothing like a hat or jeans, or a CD that you haven’t played in years. Hang up a poster or picture that is hiding in a closet. Prepare a few meals from an old favorite cookbook that’s been neglected. Reread an old novel. Wear that old hat. Play that album. Wear an old scent that you are fond of. Watch several episodes of an old television series. Find something old that still resonates for you NOW.
2- Wear the item or use the object or perform the activity repeatedly for a minimum of one week ; three weeks would be ideal.
3- Observe your thoughts and feelings to assess any significant changes.
4-Then journal or meditate on your experiences to gain more clarity.
5- Finally, blog about what you have discovered.
Looking for quotes or passages to help me bring balance to this month of daily blogging, reaching into the bookshelves, picking up random books, flipping to random pages; the passage below caught my eye.
Hope you enjoy 🙂
Sitting in the restaurant where I almost always have my coffee breaks while working I saw one of the staff cleaning the chairs. It was on a Saturday morning, there was no worry of a crowd and at that time of the day, there weren’t that many people anyway.
She squatted down and started wiping the legs of the chair…that got me thinking… Continue reading “Where’s the common in common decency gone?”
There is a quote or saying which goes: One man’s meat is another man’s poison.
I want to share with you a short excerpt from the book Insomnia by Stephen King. It was the second reading for me , the first time being a couple of years ago. I can’t remember if the impact of this was as profound as it was then, but I will tell you that this time it felt like a pretty big brick hit me right in the middle of my eyes! Thankfully it was just a metaphorical brick, so no injuries were actually sustained 😉
