I am not a stranger to troubles, and I am far from impervious to pain. I sit here on a higher pain day glad my feet have stopped “burning” finally. I took one of my pain pills and massaged my feet a while… something finally helped. I have clouded thoughts of emptiness after two really fun weekends with a visiting friend so now when she is gone back home, I feel pretty empty again.
I am still working on catching up… I know I sound like a broken record, record, record. But I am really trying. I have been busy with therapy and doctor visits. Now my cat is going to the vet for tests. And there are the usual trips to the store a couple of times a week. With the heat of summer, I am just wiped out!
So just to touch base I am still at it. If I get a couple of posts in a day, I will feel good about gaining a little ground. If I don’t, I will hope to at least get one done to not lose any ground. Maybe by next weekend I will be updating less than a week behind instead of more. But it is what it is…
I hope everyone has a good week and happy blogging! (((HUGS)))

“Great discoveries and improvements invariably involved the cooperation of many minds. I may be given credit for having blazed the trail, but when I look at the subsequent developments I feel the credit is due to others rather than to myself.” – Alexander Graham Bell
“If people are failing, they look inept. If people are succeeding, they look strong and good and competent. That’s the “halo effect.” Your first impression of a thing sets up your subsequent beliefs. If the company looks inept to you, you may assume everything else they do is inept.” – Daniel Kahneman
“In 70s America, protest used to be very effective, but in subsequent decades municipalities have sneakily created a web of “overpermiticisation” – requirements that were designed to stifle freedom of assembly and the right to petition government for redress of grievances, both of which are part of our first amendment.” – Naomi Wolf
“Science is a self-correcting discipline that can, in subsequent generations, show that previous idea’s were not correct.” – Brian Greene

I am sure a lot of you are thinking of the song “Runaround Sue” with this prompt… me too! I recall a story of the DJ who did our wedding reception. He asked if there were any songs we should stay away from. We couldn’t think of one but wondered why he asked. He had been at a wedding and played the song Runaround Sue like he often did… the place went silent. The bride was Sue and there had been a shaky period with her and her new Groom. The DJ said he now always asked if there were songs he should stay away from. I will forever think of that story with this song.
And now a less played version, from my youth, of Leif Garrett singing the song…
