Life from a different perspective

Dear Readers,

Despite the circumstances I hope that you have enjoyed the summer because it’s not over yet. I understand that people are concerned about summer ending. We’ve gotten caught up in enjoying being outside and feeling less stressed. You should continue to enjoy a slower pace there is no reason to begin to stir up panic about the natural changing of the season.

I know its been a difficult year, and the fear of shutting down and go back to begin sheltered in place, and facing the unknown. I admit there is cause for concern, but let me remind you about WIN, What’s Important Now. I said this many months ago when we were first ordered to shelter in place.

What’s important Now is that we have time to create a plan to continue to work from home, develop a structured schedule for home schooling, and think of ways to maintain good emotional, mental and physical health. Remember, we have  struggled through a tremendous crisis, it was difficult, but once people understood the seriousness of this predicament, we did what was needed to remain stay.

I know its easier to keep a positive attitude when we can enjoy warmer weather, and spreading out makes people feel better emotionally. May I suggest looking  forward to the changing seasons with excitement and enjoyment. Continue to stay safe, think about the children this situation has been especially difficult for them , maintain calmness,  and start to think about how your going to structure daily life once we are indoors. In the meantime, enjoy.

Thank you for stopping by dragthepen.

 

Seasonal Changes

Dear Readers,

We all joke about how the change in seasons impact people’s behavior. We are entering into the season of Fall. Most people are sad to see the summer leave. I am one of them. I enjoy the warm weather, wearing less clothing,  outdoor entertainment and a slower pace of life. Let’s be mindful that we can still enjoy the power of each season and what each season represents in our lives and how we can connect spiritually to the changing of the seasons.

 

 

 

The Lost Love

the_english_lady_the_knight_by_tiorra

William Wordsworth

She dwelt among the untrodden ways

Besides the springs of Dove;

A maid whom there were none to praise

And very few to love:

A violet by a mossy stone

Half -hidden from the eye!

-fair as a start, when only one

is shining in the sky

She lived unknown, and few could know

When lucky ceased to be;

But she is in her grave, and, oh,

The difference to me!
