I’m delighted to guest blog today on Sue’s wonderful Daily Echo. I’m sitting in my recliner looking up, wondering what to write. There’s a ten-foot long spider web hanging from the ceiling fan to the beam over my head, gently blowing with the heat circulating around the room. Tapestries of cobwebs grace the corners of the high windows that I can’t reach without a ladder. More delicate threads crisscross the Christmas star that I never took down – from 3 years ago. I kid you not.

When my grandson was 2 years old, he said the house was “spooky.” I laughed but didn’t whisk them away despite the cute commentary.

It feels good to sit and stare for a few minutes, to breathe and relax and study the floating web and the way it catches the light.

  2. Oh my goodness, Diana, you summed up my life also, commutes, children, clocks, marriages, mortgages, elusive daydreams. I still have to write in time snippets which pushes me to the limit. I’m glad you have reached a point to get some well deserved R&R. 😀

    • It’s one of the great things about getting older, Lana, the choice to arrange and rearrange priorities. I couldn’t write during those crazy years of working and raising kids, and I admire those who can! Amazing to me. Enjoy each day as they pass and grab some R&R when you can. 🙂

    • Thanks, Teagan. Is there such thing as perfect balance? Probably not, but I keep looking for it! I’m going to slow down on the writing and that will create lots of room for other fun things. Thanks for visiting! Happy Easter.

  9. That was fabulous, Diana. I can’t imagine what it feels like to take a break and just breathe. Let me know how long it lasts? *Grin* A few weeks ago my daughter-in-law was over and commented on a cool cobweb in my kitchen. 🙂 Shh…don’t tell, but there are others. Enjoy your weekend.
