Letters to the Universe… The Earworm Edition!

Dear Temperature,
Always nice to feel you rise as Summer approaches, but would you mind rising a little more gradual this year rather than hitting us full pelt one morning and remaining at sweltering for several weeks… I only ask so that we can have time to adjust and enjoy you more!

Dear Traffic Lights,
Such a pleasure when you change to green as I approach. You cut my journey time by half when you do this, and it is quite exhilarating when each of you change in turn as I approach! I really would like to experience this phenomenon more often.

Dear The Word Phenomenon,
You always make me smile when I see you, which is a little strange I know, but you do. And when I say you, I think of…

Always a joy!

Dear The Word Flibbertigibbet,
You too are another word that makes me smile, and I couldn’t let this opportunity pass without saying so!

Dear All The Small Things,
You simply amuse me! Fabulous!

Dear Articulated Lorry Driver,
Should you really be hurtling down a road at such a speed in a vehicle your size? I was going to say that you could easily not see a vehicle as small as mine when doing so, but as you overtook me you obviously saw me. All I can say is take care next time – I’m sure your stopping distance will be greatly increased should you need to brake sharply.

Dear Tufty,
Just to say it was a pleasure as always to see you floating in the Lake with your beak tucked under your wing whilst you slept. When that gust of wind got up and spun you around like it did, I was laughing with you and not at you! Hope you didn’t get too dizzy!

Dear Paintbrushes,
I do intend to use you again, I do!, and I will do so soon. Just making a few readjustments time-wise, and then you will be back in action!

Dear Balmy Evening,
Such a pleasure to walk out in you the other evening, even though I was only walking to the supermarket. You made waiting to cross the pedestrian crossing all the more pleasant.

Dear Moonlight,
It was so comforting seeing your brilliant glow shining through my window last night. You are very relaxing and helped me drift off into a replenishing and rejuvenating sleep. I didn’t look rejuvenated when I awoke once again, but I felt it… so thank you!

And to finish… Dear All,
Greet a stranger with a smile. A smile from a stranger may be all that they need to make their day.

Thank you for reading!

Here’s a photo of Lucie Jones to finish. Lucie who??

LUCIE JONES! She is representing the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine this weekend. Brexit or no Brexit, good luck Lucie! Just to be sure.

Feel Good Friday!

Time for a new feature, I feel.

I have a fun connection with the Universe, I really do! I love how things are delivered to me in such amazing ways that if they were written down they would seem far-fetched at least, impossible at most. Even the things that recently spiralled out of control come under this connection – everything that is coming into my life is ‘helped along’ to me by the Universe. I bring them in as well, of course, and being in the right place at the right time also helps. How often are we in the right place at the right time? More often than we give credit to, when you think about it.

First, though, something to set the scene. In between my normal life bits and bobs, I’ll pop the TV on and catch a quick few minutes of a programme I recorded for a later time. A few minutes here and there helps to keep things moving along nicely. My recent recording for these ‘snippets’ is of the singing competition The Voice UK, and I’d already watched the first singer of this particular episode.

So now that we are where we are, time for a little background story regarding this very post. I’m trying to write posts at present to schedule and post early the next day, rather than writing and posting there and then, to slow things down a little and provide myself a little more time. For this post, I hit the stumbling block for ideas that has been hampering me recently. This post, Friday’s post, was going to be left until Friday evening to write as nothing was coming to me. This didn’t matter, however, as it would still be posted on Friday, and Thursday’s post had already been published so I didn’t need to worry about that. Thursday’s post was about the Butterfly Effect. Now that is important and you will see why shortly.

OK. Post postponed. I decided to catch my next song on The Voice, a chap singing ‘Hold on Tight’ by Greg Holden. A good version, I must say, but Greg’s original grabbed my attention when I first heard it, and I’ve posted it a couple of times on my blog since then. What goes around comes around. I realised the Universe was telling me to write a post featuring this song… the other participants on the show were commenting on the fact that they didn’t know it, and I was telling them that I did! I knew it! Inspiration had struck.

So, I came to write the post, and looked for the original that featured the video so I could link to it. The first comment from Prenin on that original post caused my mouth to drop open.

Please, follow this link to the original post, listen to the song, and look at Prenin’s comment. Bear in mind I didn’t know what I would be writing about for Thursday’s post until Wednesday.

The Universe is full of surprises. I know it. I’m very often in the right place at the right time, yet I’m always surprised when the Universe delivers.

It is now 23:00 on 09/03/17, I’m adding a few images, and will then be scheduling this to be posted at 00:30 on 10/03/17.

What goes around comes around. Feel Good now!
