Writer's Block

Hmm, I seem to be experiencing some writer's block...Any suggestions? What do you do when you don't know what write? Do you write about something really random(like a CD player) and hope that something profound will come out of it? Do you wait around for days waiting for a stroke of inspiration to hit you like a bolt of lightning?

Well, no stroke of inspiration coming towards me... :(

I could just write about writer's block. When does writer's block come about? Is it when our lives are at their most uneventful peak? I don't think so. Nobody's life is all that boring that there should be nothing to write about! What is it then? Is it a lack of having something profound happen in our days? Not enough that seems important enough to share with others? Then I think we must find things important enough to share. When we have done that, we will perhaps be finding the good in tiny things, rejoicing in the little subtleties of life.

Thanks for reading,

St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day (a day late)!

I am sorry that I have not posted for quite awhile. *sheepish grin* I am an Irish Dancer, so during the St. Patrick's Day "season" I am quite busy dancing with my troupe's performance routine at schools, seniors homes and various other functions. I do have a longer blog entry in the writing at the moment, so I should have that up soon.

Ahh! Its a new colour scheme!

Yes, yes, I know. I think it is rather nice actually.

Fallen Firefighters

Recently, I visited a memorial in a neighboring city. It is called The Fallen Firefighters Memorial. It remembers fire fighters that died doing their duties at a fire. (Pictures below of the memorial.)
This entry is not really a "musing" but more of a thank you, a thank you to not only to fallen fire fighters, but a thank-you to all fire fighters, police and paramedics both past and present. What ever would we do with out you all? Thank you!

Little Britches and Gratitude

Sorry I haven't posted in over a week...Either way, here is something for you to read.

This week I re-read one of my favorite books of all-time; Little Britches, by Ralph Moody. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend reading it.

This time, when I read it, what really stuck out at me was gratitude. Let me share with you this quote from the book:

"He didn't answer me for a few minutes, then he told me we hadn't stopped to realize how well off we were to have enough to eat every day, and to have a good home and clothes enough to keep us warm, when people were actually starving."

You, my reader, by reading this are showing that you own(or at least have access to) a computer. What a marvelous tool! How fortunate we are to live in an age where technology is so easy to access. However, I am positive that you agree with me when I say that gratitude is poorly measured by being thankful about having access to a computer! We are lucky to be alive. What a great thing it is to live in such a wonderful world. No matter what happens in life, we need to be grateful. If your ever feeling down, look around you and say I am lucky to be alive. Things could be so much worse. I can't possibly say what I want to say as well as Bob Thiele and David Weiss said it in their song What a wonderful world. So, I am just going to post the song and you can enjoy!

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.
