I’ve been humming this tune with a slight change in the lyrics
“I can see clearly now,
the rain is
the leaves are gone.”
I’m used to what might be called “fluidity” in song lyrics.
My beloved is constantly singing
and not knowing the lyrics has never been an impediment to this cheery habit.
His songs are a bit of a family tradition and
he has taken quite a bit of good-humoured teasing from the family for his odd lyrics.
I have to confess, that in the past,
I even had a few moments of tiny irritation
when he would sing one of my favourite songs with his incredibly random lyrics.
But that’s when I was young and foolish.
I see more clearly now
and I think it’s one of his most endearing qualities.
And that is just the segue into what I thought was the real subject of this post:
Seeing clearly now that the leaves are gone 🙂
Like this bird that I saw on a walk through the woods last week.
A female ruffled grouse, sitting so still and staring straight ahead.
I’m sure she thought she was completely camouflaged
but there she was, in plain view.
R and I had to get out our trusty old bird book to make sure we were identifying her correctly.
A great book – we’ve worn out several copies over the years.
But now, as so often happens in my blogging experience,
I’m thinking about something different.
Isn’t it funny, how you can begin to write about one topic
and then end up with something quite unexpected.
The creative springs begin to flow just by the act of putting the fingers to the keyboard.
What about you?
Are your blog posts planned?
Do you like to follow the memes like Menu Monday or Thankful Thursday?
What inspires you?
Your photography, your reading?
Current events, another blog post?
Do you write more like a letter to a friend? Or a record of family events?
Or are you more likely to just sit down and write as your imagination leads?
I’m always surprised at the vast amount of topics that are covered on the blogosphere.
Where do you find your ideas?
Inquiring minds want to know 🙂
Happy Monday my friends!
