I only realised quite recently how having a ‘personal’ blog can take the slog out of doing everyday chores that are a challenge to sanity.
Yes, I know that some people love hoovering, washing saucepans, dusting, emptying the rubbish, cleaning the bathroom, de-frosting the freezer, searching for socks ….. but I just don’t.
Soooooooooo, where does the blog fit in? Well, I’m finding that the worse the chore, the more I’m leaning into it to draw out fresh angles, memories, inspiration, fun, musical, poetic, artistic and dance connections.
So, as I brace myself to attack the fridge which is full of good intentions gone to gunge, I’m planning to do it to music which will have me bopping around the
aisle kitchen ~ it just has to be Buddy Holly ~ and thoughts of that great summer afternoon in London at the Buddy Holly Story.
Pencil and notebook will sit on the counter to catch the flow of thoughts as my gloved hands and masked face burrow into the volcanic mountain that may well explode like early Halloween fireworks at the very first touch.
Ah Halloween …. now there’s a thought! Trick or Treat?
