Taken for Granted

Posted: January 26, 2008 in Uncategorized

I have struggled this morning, and into the early afternoon, to find a meaningful topic to discuss, but alas, nothing has come to me. It seems that the Voices have been quelled to some extent. I cannot decide if I am grateful for this, or if I truly miss the friends buried deep within my psyche. No matter…they will return with something outrageous I am sure, and when they do, you will be the first to hear of it.

That aside, I must say that we often take the sunshine for granted. As many of us in this country are deep in the grips of Mother Winter, a little bit of sunshine goes a long way. For those of us that are subjected to the perils (and beauty) of snow, a splash of thaw mixed with your sunshine is indeed a delicious cocktail. Except for (there’s always a catch, huh?)…the mud. Oh dear Lord the mud. We tend to forget that, beneath the breathtaking layer of white precipitation, there is ground. In my world, this ground is wet dirt, better known as mud. Couple this messy concoction with our furry, four-legged friends, and you have a terrific hangover to follow that delicious cocktail. I have found that it is not the snow and cold that makes me wish for Spring, but rather the lack of appreciable grass and over abundance of muddy goodness that my dogs (like all dogs) take great joy in frolicking in. Man’s best friend my ass.

Such is life….always a journey, even if caked in mud.

A lie is always a truth unless you get caught.
