... Me o w ....
.
How do you get a new perspective ?
.
I fear I am being hunted.
Familiar voices circling, wanting me scheduled for T
hanksgiving and into New Years … ... tugs this way & that way. Served with turkey and cranberries, I am sure they intend to eat me— “gobble-gobble” and all that goodness with gravy on top!

If I disappear, I am either in rehab for
gingerbread eggnog (stir into your coffee) or someone has me by the drumstick the giblets or ay, ouch is playing tug-o-war with my wish bone. How lucky we be … :)

I wish you all a Happy (early) Thanksgiving.
Start celebrating! (Why do we ever stop?)

I am blessed & grateful for all you share here and on your blogs.
You’re all too much to gobble up, its so rich being part of this humanity.
Thank you.

Hi there:) Happy early Thanksgiving.
...
With people. listen. alone. relax, smile. let go, open my heart, my mind and my senses. And there it comes. it's magic. both.

We're the same, aren't we. All. Perhaps tuning in will change my perspective. Goggle goggle :))

google google... ha ha!

Its pretty wonderful, most of it--there are SO many people back home who don't see me often; so when i'm around everyone wants a bite of me, its a lot of going here and there... condensed visiting time..

Disa said...

ooh err, got you by the giblets, that could leave a bruise. you are right, i think the same 'mr stretch' conversation goes on in families across postal codes and national borders. my mum is like target and their xmas decorations. she starts earlier and earlier every year about "booking flights". gahhhhh!
you are obviously like nutella; everyone wants whatever they can have of you- no matter how thinly spread.

gracia said...

That first image - WOW! Hello you!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving... xo

omami said...

Uschi said...

Oh woww. Hugs and thank you for the true true poem and the simple sentence about who could be called sane.....
Thanksgiving is a tradition-free day for me in Germany but I know so much similiar...so many feelings and emotions pressed into one given date.
Tomorrow is a new day of celebrating...and the next day...and the...as long as we are here!

Katrina said...

oh gosh, i completely agree. the holiday tugs start early and seem to continue into the new year. best wishes to you for some calm and centeredness in all the holly-daze excitement soon to come. i have a friend who said, "you know, you don't HAVE to see everyone every year" what a novel idea. happy early thanksgiving...

Jo said...

Thanksgiving yes...we have so much to be thankful for...Happy happy Thanksgiving to you.
I wish we honoured it here too in a celebration day, I may try that eggnog anyway :)
I love turning things upside down...purrfect :)
Lynne, Margaret, Johnny and Bob again purrfect...

lynne h said...

yes, like nutella, you're so tasty everyone can't resist a little bite. just a little teeny tiny one...

the quote... (smiles and shakes her head : )

that bob dylan and johnny cash is SWEET. oh my... me melting right on the spot.

and i love this photograph and thinking about a new perspective... i want to do what christine says in the middle paragraph. BE that.

happy thanksgiving dear mansuetude...

Jeane said...

lol! - I do believe upside down is a fabulous way to get a new perspective! we only tug and pull at the things we love - lucky you!

Gwen Buchanan said...

With someone as precious as you.. who could resist.. You sooth their souls.. you fill up the empty places inside them... your care is appreciated by them.. They want to be near you... you make them happy... you make them laugh...


yes... it is difficult to give even more of yourself than you already do... even when you don't know you are giving .. you are giving..

you calm their spirits... you are dearly valued... you understand.. and It is a lot to handle at times...

You are Loved................

Oh Johnny and Bob... dogs are barking... the sounds inside my mind..
Thank you... it lead me to "You are my Sunshine".. I think it is the song that has the most meaning to me in all the world... I want to sing that song... I want to sing that song right now.. I want to play it too.. I want to feel it..

The Moment... awareness to cherish.... for now.. for the time we are here... to share...


I am Thankful for your Giving...

have a Happy Thanksgiving..... Enjoy it to the max...

Mary-Laure said...

Your post made me laugh... Being sucked into a whirlwind of holiday celebration...
Make sure to stay sane and stay away from that eggnog, naughty girl!

Esti said...

yes, why did we stop celebrating?
:)

Roxana said...

andrea tachezy said...

Happy early Thanksgiving and thank you for all your nice comments.It´s almost a year, we wrote about a night snowing, isn´t it? Na zdravĂ­!

rivergardenstudio said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you. I love your words on us all being part of this humanity, and your quote from Lynne Hoppe. Save a bit of time for yourself on this beautiful day. Roxanne

Marjojo said...

Thanks esp. for the Margaret Atwood-poem, I love her voice, her intelligence just shines through everything she does. Happy holidays - or are they over now?

Ritva said...

how do i get a new perspective?
in a cup the most important thing is the empty space. that is it´s purpose. in life, i like to think, that we are surrounded by something, one can call it love, maybe.
i play with an idea that every time i move myself (or some object), that emptyness i create by doing so, is immediately fulfilled with that love that surrounds us... ;)

Sandra Evertson said...

I can relate! Hee...
Seasons Greetings and Holiday Cheer to you!

bookbabie said...

Ooh yum, I need to try that coffee cream:)

janie said...

I'm putting Atwood back on my reading list, I tried The Blind Assassin yrs ago but didn't like it never finished it, I really enjoyed her sense of humor in the interview, very impressed, have to try her books again.
Loved the Dylan and Cash duet, especially the chuckles and smiles from Cash right at the very end:)

karin said...

Hello!
I really enjoy how you make "jonglage" with the words. It makes me smile, easy and fun reading!

invisiblebees said...

"Start celebrating! (Why do we ever stop?)"

I'd totally wear that on the front (and back) of a tee-shirt. Or frame it and put it by the dining room table. Or better yet, aha, on the wall in the bedroom. ...And that's not meant to sound cheesy. I think you've asked (once again) an important question.

Renee said...

I love this post. It is so optimistic.

You are right, why stop celebrating.

xoxo

Love Renee
