I wasn’t “feeling” a good Feel Good Friday song today. I’m not in a music mood. That’s one thing that trips me out as I get older. I don’t always have music on the way I used to. Sometimes, now, it gives me a bit of a headache and I just have to have some quiet.
I think my younger self is rolling over in her teen years to think that we don’t any longer have to have music at every turn.
In a way, though, it’s better because the music has more impact when I do engage. Instead of being constant in the background it gets spotlit in my mind and washes over me completely. I think that’s really how music should be, and I wonder sometimes if the easy access to music that we enjoy sometimes takes away from the magic.
Today is one of those days I hate blogging because I’ve got all of these things going on behind the scenes that I can’t make public over the internet. If I kept an old-fashioned journal (which I no longer do) I’d write it in there. But I don’t, so I just blog and try to blog around the sensitive stuff. Then again, I do have people I can email and say “what would you do in this circumstance, people?” That’s a good side to blogging. You meet people who can serve as wise counsel.
All that aside I must say that I do feel good this Friday. For the past week and a half I’ve been able to knit again! That’s a huge milestone–in some ways it’s bigger even than being able to walk down the stairs. So I’m happy beyond happy about that.
It is a good Friday indeed.
