Getting Wet

Everyone is probably wondering...does that woman ever have an original thought??

I read a lot; so, often, words of others strike a chord in me to the degree that I want to share it with all of YOU. So, sue me!

Here's today's NUGGET:

"There are no right answers. But there is a right question. It's the one that rubs up against our self-righeousness, resistance and fears....When you ask yourself, 'Why not?' you may find yourself in motion, across a vivid and unpredictable landscape,over impossible mountains and beyond the water's edge, where you surprise yourself, once and for all, by getting wet."

-Karen Maezen Miller in Momma Zen
What makes you all want to LEAP?? Will you??

...................... Delicious one

I have heard that "There is no such thing as an origional thought" !!

I do appreciate the nugget !! .. I will google 'Karen Maezen Miller" and find out more about her !! .. Is this book one of your latest readings ??

FEAR !!!!!!! Lol . Is what makes me leap !! .. WhenI was a kid . we used to jump off of an old coal chute that was about 40 feet above the Hudson River !! .. My first time up to the chute was terrifying .. I was so scarred that I couldn't climb back down !! .. The only way that I was ever going to save face . was to jump !! .. Lol . I did get wet !! .. And went back for more !!!

Well here I am ... I'm climbing the 'coal chute' and the kids behind me . won't let me back down !! .. Won't be long and I will be right out there at the "jumping off point" !!

I am trying to spread some gratitude throughout the blogs with my Say Something Nice !! post !! .. I hope that you will follow the link there .. and if you feel like this will be good .. put the link on your next blog post !!

I'm not able to post an "appreciation note" for you today . Delicious .. But please know that you are appreciated beyond words !! ... Oh .. Nice photo !!

There are precious few original thinkers or thoughts and many that are original have little, if any, value.
What is of value is a mind that finds and propagates the good thoughts, though they may not be original, they are best when shared.

Maybe the site is still slow .. But it now gives me an opportunity to give the pretty girls some summer flowers !! .. These "Black-Eyed Susan's" are native to our area of the country and were growing wild in the prairie's when Daniel Boone was here !!

I guess answering a question with a question is ok

What makes you leap?

Me? It's just in my personality to jump in while everyone else sits back and considers the situation.

Mandy:

The opportunity for adventure makes me LEAP.

The ever changing face of HOPE makes me leap.

Lyndah:

JOy is usually the result of leaping and not the reason...although my heart does leap at the prospect

DnG,
Sometimes when reading blogs I become frustrated because so many of them contain famous quotes, song lyrics, poetry by others and on and on. But, then other times I can check my ego and realize that I am almost certain I've never had an original thought.

Blogging is developing and holding a reader's interest through whatever means are at your disposal, (short of fraud, deception, or lying - I don't play that way) and the more popular blogs are the ones who manage to pique the most interest.

That said, life changing events generally force me to dive in, ready or not. At 48 I am standing at the precipice, being nudged by the wind and wondering, what if....?

From the sublime to the elegantly verbose, you have all bases covered dear one.

I've done more jumping than you've done walking lady, and I've got the scars to prove it.

If you want an action hero, look up the governator.
