Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 21st day of December, 2013.

The only sounds that I can hear at this very moment are those of my fingers hitting the keyboard.

It seems so eerie ….

The sky is a pale blue as the sun begins to rise.

I can see out of my office window smoke rising from neighbouring chimneys.

Alvin slept over at his sister’s house so it is just me and it is so QUIET.

Do you ever have moments like these where it is so quiet you can hear your own breathing?

If I close my eyes I feel that peaceful solitude that comes with meditation.

Feels so good.

Furnace just cut in ….. (that is a good thing).

So on this last Saturday before Christmas ….. before all the excitement becomes so loud that you cannot think much less hear yourself breathe ….. take a few moments.

When you are in those moments ….. just sit in a comfy position, anywhere.

Close your eyes ….

Smile ….

Just breathe …. deeply …… deeply …..

Only concentrate of breathing ….. not of your TO DO list or how busy the mall is going to be.

I guarantee that the rest of the loud, crazy day will be so much easier to handle ……

I hope that you have an amazing Saturday.

WOW, it is so close now…….

YAY ……..

Special Hello to: my friend Linda …… thank you for the most beautiful card and we shall talk soon, I promise.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 30th day of July 2013.

Well it is a beautiful morning here in the City of Edmonton.

The sky is a beautiful powder blue and the SUN is SHINING.

It is breathtaking.

I wonder what everyone else is doing at this exact time in every household on the planet.

I guess it would be too much to even comprehend …. if possible.

The thoughts …. would they be mainly positive, promising and would everyone be feeling mainly happy.

I often wonder what others think…

It isn’t always what they say.

Wouldn’t you like to be a “bug” on the wall somedays?

I would …. people truly fascinate me.

Of course there are days when some people “bug” me but I would say 96-98% of the time I find them most interesting.

I could watch and listen to people all day.

I love sitting on a bench in the mall and watching people go by …..

Well time to go to work …

Have a great day.

I hope that you are enjoying my little story.

Where will it go?

I write it as I write this blog …. nothing is pre-planned.

Special Hello to: all those writers in the world ….. keep the words flowing.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

FIRST LINE …..July 25, 2013

As we walk along the water’s edge the coolness leaves my skin with goose bumps and prickles, as if there is someone behind me.

July 26, 2013

Alvin pulls on his leash and brings me back, the fragrance of freshly cut grass fills my nostrils; my heart beat quickens, and I am unable to shake the feeling.

July 28, 2013

The sky is overcast with a hint of sunrise peeking through and the leaves of the trees rustle in the breeze, and I think how did I get here? 

July 29, 2013

What does that mean, and what is making me think these thoughts?

July 30, 2013

All of a sudden the leash tightens as Alvin pulls me forward.
