Read this, it will make you think

Hi Folks,

 

OK, so old narf has been reblogging a few posts this year. I talked about happiness and simple pleasures etc. this week and I know that my tiddley-poe post wasn’t all that inspiring to most of you but I just read a wonderfully written, inspiring and most beautiful blog post that I really need to share with you all. Some of you are going through your own “Long dark tea-time of the soul” at the moment, it is inevitable as we are hitting the aging stick in our droves and life tends to start rebounding on us and the sins of our past are suddenly the problems of our future.

So here we are wondering how the heck we got here, what the heck we are supposed to be doing here and thinking that the whole world has it together apart from us, but you know what? No-one knows, no-one has that magic key to the magic land of complete understanding and no-one (if they are being honest) has a handle on the meaning of life (except for me remember…it’s “42” Β I KNOW…I am that generous with life’s secrets! That’s why you keep coming back for more…)

So without any fanfare but a whole lot of admiration for this wonderful Aussie blogger who I have never met, probably will never meet but who shares our common condition of “life”, here is another one of those magic moments…hope you enjoy, get something out of it or at least love the image of that amazing farm in the middle of no-where…

      Glad you liked it Bev, she seems to have her head together and if you check out her blog a bit further, she shares how to dye things with natural ingredients. A really interesting blog and why I subscribed to her in the first place πŸ™‚

      It doesn’t like WordPress folk…we are apparently strange creatures but after I allowed it to have my full name (which I listed as “narf7” as you do πŸ˜‰ ) I was able to post. Blogger don’t trust we WordPressers, we are a different species…we are sort of PC users to Bloggers Mac users, always going to be a bit of a divide there πŸ˜‰

    This really spoke to me today… after a similar “life” conversation on the phone this morning with a friend battling cancer. I wonder so many of the same things as were pondered in this post, and it feels amazing to be connected in this way. I don’t feel so alone in the world – it’s flabbergasting to think someone so many miles away has thought the same thoughts and that our life experiences are not so different.

      πŸ™‚ We share a common humanity and no matter how far flung we are in this spinning globe, no matter if we can’t understand each others languages, cultures etc. we are ALL the same underneath πŸ™‚ Hugs to you for your empathy Lori, we are sharing a similar battle with a little girl who just turned 7 the other day who has terminal cancer 😦
