I've been doing lots better this afternoon, and I am having a nice cup of spiced Chai (which you should probably know is a Hindi word for "Tea". It's my favorite kind, black tea with the "Masala" spices. I'll leave it to you to look those up if you want to find out, or just go and buy the Lipton brand of "Spiced Chai" at the store.
I've been looking around the NaBloPoMo Randomizer and seeing alot of other interesting lil' blogs out there... Kudos to all of you guys! It's fun trying to post every day this month. I post a lot anyway, so it's not that much of a stretch for me.
As I sat here over my afternoon cup of Chai I was thinking of a few things. First of all, if my Mother got all technical and had a computer, would she blog? And if she did I wonder what she would blog about? That would be really neat if my Mother blogged... I wish at least I could e-mail her, but my parents have never been very 'cutting edge', and have never cared if they had the latest or greatest anything, come to think about it.
Something that has gotten on my nerves completely today: There has been this weird "humming", modulated sound, kind of like a type of emergency noise, but it's not that at all. It is something in or around the building. It's incessant and goes off every couple of minutes and won't stop. Nobody knows the source of this, but it has gotten extremely irritating. You know how it is when you realize a sound, and then you can't stop listening to it? You just can't 'block it out'?? That's what's going on with this. I'm that way though, I am very easily distracted by weird noises, cellphone rings, other's loud conversations... things that other people with great attention spans might be able to ignore. Thanks God. I couldn't have gotten my husband's ability to "zone out", now could I? (There it goes again!! HummmUmmmmUmmmmUmmm!! ARRGHHH!)
Lastly, fall is really rolling along. The trees are all finally putting on their reds, bright yellows and lovely orange colors and I'm just about ready to go out on a fall photo shoot!! Fall has brought about that 'magic' feeling of youth, and as I was just about to step out of the bathroom stall in the Ladies' room today, my mind wandered and I heard faint music from the past... I thought 'I could still be in high school right now, this moment. When I step out of the restroom, it might be into the halls of my old school, with voices surrounding, books shuffling with the change of classes, passing notes in the hallway to my BFF's and the familiar scent of youth and electricity in the air...' What are our surroundings and existence but an illusion that we, ourselves have built with our minds?? Really!!
Inside, I'm still the same little girl I have always been with strange ideas, and creative energy, and hopes and dreams... I just need to paint myself a whole new canvas... that's all life is, a big canvas. It's up to us to make it the masterpiece we want it to be.
