My life sometimes feels like I'm on a conveyor belt. Like some kind of freaky episode of the Generation Game.
Constantly rushing past me as I try and grab at stuff before it passes me by too quickly. Furiously trying to shove it into place or make it fit into the everyday manic that perpetually goes on around me.
I've got to remember to just slow down some days and lift my head out from beyond the fog. Because if I don't I will miss these perfect moments and 'bloody hell' how splendid is it to find yourself at the top of a hill looking down and out across the valley to the land spread out below you.
See that chimney in the distance, just peaking through the clouds? That's me remembering to do the same thing and only just succeeding. Not always, but 'goodness' the air above is so refreshing.
The effort is absolutely rewarding.
*I'm still learning about this strange new space to blog in and have had to change my comments settings because I couldn't follow any links back or connect to all you lovely folks out there trying to do the same with me. I was kind of second guessing who was trying to connect with me.
This has meant though that unfortunately because the new system does not support the previous way of leaving a message (it's a URL thing - huh!) I've had to loose all your past comments. They are still there for me to view, but no one else can see them.
Many apologies, but I hope this will make it easier. Please do let me know it you are still struggling. I've received so many emails saying how you just can't leave a simply comment. Here's hoping it's finally fixed.
