Turning Point

I am behind on nearly everything, including my reading here... I must feel confoundedly stunted by my own bummed-out-edness. That includes the way I feel when looking at my own blog! It doesn't matter that I swing wildly between laughing freely and all it's opposite alternatives.

Though I've been in the midst of my own personal grief, here we all are this week struck by the loss of so many: Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Billy Mays, and most of all Michael Jackson. While I do believe that the world has changed this week, that these losses speak to us all, that reflection is certainly in order, I am also left feeling something else. It's hard to pinpoint, but I know that life is here for us all, here for as long as we are able to embrace it. I feel a little levity is in order. I know I need it. I'm not sure how much should be prescribed to offset the heft of my heaviness. Fizzy Lifting Drinks would not be turned down. I'll sanitize the ceiling. I'm good at that. ;) Hey, gotta love that stainless steel!
Announcing the return of
Be well, all.
Love. Peace. Life.

  1. Glad to see you back, Circe! :-) Am hoping you’ve found some much-needed levity. The dinner looks wonderful, too.

    There has been a large amount of grief in the world, lately, yes. And I know what you mean about the personal grief aspect, too. The world-wide grief over so many souls lost, lately, only adds to the sadness. The suddenness of much of it - the plane crashes, so much shock. It almost seems that, with so many grieving, it causes a major emotional “tide” through the world and everyone. Through all of that, it becomes clear how very connected we all are as human beings.

    Life, yes. And love. The intricacies of the things below the surface that there are no words for. These things are precious, indeed.

    Sending much love and hugs your way,
