I live life in cycles. I go gung-ho in one direction for a while, and soak up all I can about the thing I’m in to. I admit to a few obsessions that have risen and waned over my life. Some I will probably never take up again in obsessed mode; like World of Warcraft, Vogue, cake decorating, and ribbon embroidery. Some will always thrill me and woo back my full attention. Like…
- History: in ANY form, shape, size or dustiness!
- Ancient theories: like alien intervention, super-intelligent races, mythology, etc
- Interior Design
- and Women “Liberation” (I have no idea how to say that, but you know what I mean.)
I used to balk at my ebb and flow, thinking I should have more constancy. But I’m okay with it now. With age I have realized it all evens out. To everything there is a season and a time.
My new obsession is Mumford & Sons.
There is truth for parenting in these lyrics.
Lend me your hand and we’ll conquer them all
But lend me your heart and I’ll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep, totally free
(From Awake My Soul)
