Monday

At times I question myself as to why I have a blog. I'm not a writer and certainly my life is not very interesting. Those are not complaints, mind you, they are merely statements of fact. Writers are people who can wax on poetically and seemingly endlessly about miriad of things. I, on the other hand, can give you maybe--maybe a paragraph or two...on a good day. And good days, what are those? Are they not simply normal days into which you add your own spice? Or are they good because of my mood? Beacuse if that were the case I might have one good day in ten. Most mornings I wake up, roll out of bed and either inwardly or in my own sarcastic voice say, "hello again everyone, it's another day! So glad to see you.", or some variation of that. And of course, I'm saying it no one. It's a daily struggle, this thing we call life. Don't get me wrong, my life is not bad, in fact it can be pretty dang good. It just takes me several hours sometimes to get to that conclusion. I try my best to have a good attitude about being by myself, but sometimes it's like being alone on a see-saw. No matter how hard you push up you come flying back down.

I don't know why you write, but I know why I read. I read for little gems like your see-saw analogy. Some "writers" work for years and never come up with anything as good as those few sentences. Within that daily struggle of yours, you've gained a great deal of wisdom. That wisdom, those words, are interesting. And that is why I read John's blog. (Ended as my 3rd graders would end their paragraphs.)

Thank you, Cheryl. It means a lot to me that something of value can be gleaned from ramblings.

I guess the trick is to be glad there's a see-saw :)

And you can hope nobody comes along and jumps down hard on that other empty seat when your on it alone. I'm pretty sure that's happened to me a few times.

I mean when you're on it alone.
