I almost let you talk me out of showing up. You told me I have nothing to say
today and I should just wait until inspirations strikes before I write something.
So I waited and things got busy during my day and before I knew it, night was
falling in my part of the world. And still you tried to stop me. You told me
it was too late in the evening and that I should just skip today's participation in
Effy's blog along. But the clock hasn't struck midnight yet and I'm not Cinderella.
So here I am with not much to say on day 5.
Today I could have written about how the sun felt warm on my skin as I went for a drive
and how happy I am to finally be able to enjoy the sun since summer here has been so
rainy that we haven't had a chance to do any swimming or camping or other summer fun stuff.
Today I could have written about how the temperature in August is usually stiflingly hot but it was
very mild. Too mild to think about going to the pool or even to run through the fountain in our historic
Today I could have written about how I sat out on my porch swing and knitted for a while but the
birds and cicadas serenaded me with such sweet late summer melodies that soon sleep claimed me.
That lovely nap on the porch was just what my body needed.
I even could have written about watching the lightening bugs dancing around the trees and my yard
as the street lights came on and the bird song faded as the frog quartet warmed up.
I could have written about any of that. But here at the end of the day I've not much to say.
But Ego I will say this. At least I showed up...and just showing up is super important.
