Dear Car Breakdown Recovery Man,
I must apologise for having to get you out so early this morning, but it was necessary as my car just stopped completely as I set off at what is usually an extremely busy road junction. Luckily it was quiet, and nobody saw me huffing and puffing manoeuvring the car backwards and forwards, as I shoved and pulled and steered to get it off the main road, and safely parked by the side of the kerb, facing the correct way, on a side road. I must apologise once more for you going to the wrong road… although how would I be expected to know there were two roads with the same name in the town? Thank you for getting things sorted for me quickly.
Thank you for not being so absolutely scorching hot as I sat waiting for the car breakdown recovery man to arrive – although I must add it was fun performing all of those pushing and pulling manoeuvres in torrential rain. Thinking about it now, it, and I, would have been far worse in searing heat.
I can now advise you that silly week is over. Another version of it may be back soon with further posts of utter randomness for you to reflect upon and ponder. I now have the task, however, to ponder upon my next blog posts… sensible almost sensible ones, that is.
Have you recognised yet that what you see is yourself reflected back upon you? The people you meet… the things you read… the events of the day are all there to make you look more closely at yourself. What needs changing. What no longer serves a purpose. The clues are there.
I am pleased to have discovered the term for when I take a photo and I sometimes see orbs of light contained within the image – backscatter. A flash of light reflected back from dust or mist to a digital camera. I must say, however, that this phenomenon cannot account for all orb photographs, as I am a firm believer that orbs also indicate the presence of spiritual activity as well. That is how I feel, I must add – there are many sceptics who would vehemently disagree.
Dear The Power Of Threefold Return,
I always bear your law, and that of your equivalent Power of Tenfold Return, in mind with my serious thoughts and writing. I must admit that my spur of the moment thoughts and actions tend to be done in a ‘red mist’ situation, where no rational thought takes place, and I just act. I hope you understand that when I kick the chair after stubbing my toe on it, I shouldn’t receive three (or ten!) kicks back for doing so. That said – you are the powers of the Universe, and I have no right to question you. (I’m really writing this to myself, rather than you, to remind myself what a powerful law you are, and hopefully my spur of the moment actions will begin to decrease… not that there are that many, as you know…)
I miss you! When will you return? Don’t pull that face at me! I can see you. Hehehe! I see you’re back. Fun? Fun??
Don’t worry. You can rest this weekend. After all the hefty shoving I subjected you to earlier today, it’s no wonder you’re throbbing with vigour. If you weren’t throbbing so much, I’d tap my feet to your rhythm! Ooh, a paradox to reflect on there. I love a good paradox!
Dear Watercolour Paints,
Don’t sit there looking all forlorn at me. I can see you. Yes, I know you want to be used, and you will be once again very soon. And so will you, acrylics. I have some little square canvases to use you on… and some big ones too, but it’s always best to start small. The next letter may give a clue as to when I may start painting again.
Dear Commenters And Visitors,
Once again I apologise. It’s taking me an age to get around to visit and reply. I’d like to say this is due to circumstances beyond my control, but in reality, that’s poppycock. Utter balderdash. I just need to reorganise a few things, get myself better organised, and set myself up a nicer blogging routine. I enjoy blogging, and nothing is going to get in my way to make that change. Nothing. Not even time constraints. Reflect on that, time!
And to finish… Dear All,
It’s always a good thing to consider your actions after you’ve done them, or even as you’re doing them if you can. Every action has a reaction, every effect causes a ripple, every vibe causes other vibes to reflect off them, and multiply, diminish or change. The simplest word said in the wrong context could have far reaching consequences, and affect the listener in unintended ways. Even the word said in the right context can have similar far reaching consequences, but in different ways… don’t overanalyse, but be considerate. Reflect on yourself and see yourself reflected back.
Thank you for reading!
P.S. Here’s a reflection to reflect upon, just because:
Well, I have been posting a lot of photos of the sky recently, so one more won’t hurt!
