This has been one of those days that I needed to start over several times.  It's been a good day alternating with one that has really had its down moments.  

This morning I went into work for a few hours to get some paperwork done.  It was a ghost town. I left and went to run some errands.  I ended up at the beach later in the afternoon, walking on this warm day wondering about the nature of relationships.  Sometimes it's best not to think too much on that subject.  

Life can be as complex as we want to make it I guess.  Today I thought too much about things that I am powerless over and can't fix.  I would like to think that tomorrow I'll quit wondering about what makes other tick and just focus on my own state of being.  


  1. oh yeah! to that!!!! i myself are not living life on life's terms at the moment. thanks for that wake-up call!

  2. You "ponder" alot darlin'.
    My guess is that you've done that all your life though.
    I don't see that as a bad deal, but man when we are "down"....that pondering stuff can really get us in a quandry. Stay in the day mi amigo.

  3. I like what you have written. Listen to Pam. We sometimes think too much. [Look who's talkin' !]

    My life is in a different place (married to an alcoholic).

    Good luck on with your jewelery.


  4. the last couple of days have made you a bit below the weather. A moody spell is very understandable.
    but yeah. You can NEVER figure life out. Even trying to understand a blade of grass is beyond me. the world is an unfathomable mystery. We will never understand it.
    You probably just need a bit of down time to get back to your old self.
    Dont get pulled down by this spell of negative energy. It will pass.
    Hope you feel better soon.

  5. That's a tough one. I find myself often wondering why my husband has stuck with me through my drinking and all that entailed. What was his investment? But I put that in my God box. So now I just need to remember its there and not for me to figure out.

  6. I tend to ponder alot, & I've come to the conclusion I'll never figure it out. Life is a mystery, we are on a journey, & what ride! It's good you're writing about this, & talking to people, if you are. It's good to get it out, & get some feedback. I have to make reality checks all the time.

  7. Syd,
    Sorry I'm late with the good wishes. I hope you and your family have a healthy, happy & prosperous New Year.
    I'm real sorry you were robbed. I suppose you have to be thankful that you 'do' have the money to replace some of those gifts...but then can't replace all of them.
    I hope the grandchild will have 2nd thoughts and somehow or someway return the goods. Perhaps you can notify pawnshops in your area to be on the lookout for these items?
    Makes you wonder why these things happen to good people?
    Cheers from Canada.
    Looking back over the past year..I can say I'm thankful for many things...and one of them is adding you to my blogroll. Blog on..Syd!

  8. Well, we all form "stories" in our head from time to time. To me, these stories depict the mood we are in.


  9. happy new year to you syd! see you next year...

  10. I can't tell you how many times the calmness of your posts have helped me get through some of my own bumps in the road. I hope doing what you've been doing keeps working for you.

    I wish you the best for the new year, Syd. Thanks for all your kind words and for being here. You are a great soul.


    Happy !! New Year!!
