Philosophy that makes me feel better

The way to carry money……….
Here I am. I have just got back from shopping. I am sitting on the sofa looking at my stuff filled carrier bag. I am in a bit of a fizz, again. The bits I bought are safely in the bottom for sure, but I can only hope the paper money accrued on route ,thrown carelessly in, during frantic purchasing, is still there. I now realize once again that the couple of screwed empty ready salted crisp bags, I also acquired along the way, have unfolded themselves and  and are now floating around in the carrier, big time; and they may have pushed out  any of the  floating money in a flick during my various movements along route! So now I begin my ‘after shopping mantra’ a sort of prayer, about loose paper money which always float at some stage in the carrier bag I will be carrying, quite forgotten, during the various uncomfortable stages of travelling, that is until I get home………
It is good to carry money
In crumpled wads
In paper bags

….repeated three times during the process of emptying carrier bag.

And so my God gradually answers…… gentle tones:

‘The best way I like to carry money, actually, is messily.
Crumpled wads.
A paper bag is good’*

Feeling better already. Never actually lost anything in a carrier bag.  As far as I know.Gill McGrath©


Pink Blossom before rain

pink blossom before rain
Today: Spring Equinox
A playful wind blew on the hill
But just as it settled down
I took the walk to town
….and found
Pink blossom by a wall
……what joy!
Almost immediately
There came down a rainy scrawl…….. Gill McG

7 am

To those who did not sleep last night….Take heart!
For it is said:
‘You were awake in someone else’s dream!’

To those who did actually sleep last night.
Like me.
……..who blooming cares!

Diary. March 20. Gill

Message from Ground Control: Rearrangement of nova to supernova ‘…..the expanding shock waves from supernova explosions can trigger the formation of new stars….'(says wikipedia)….. Ok! The kids rearranged the crib again! Come Twelfth Night, crib is in box. Everything’s OK!

2014 The first flower ‘soreal not plastic’

New year resolutions I must keep:Image

Chuck out all the stuff in my  cosmetic bag and buy a whole lot of new colours .

Not to worry too much about anything. Things usually work out well enough if you hang on long enough, so I will remember to hang on.

Keep  writing the diary every day in longhand. Never edit, or look at it again once the page is turned.

I promise to watch family antics with humour and love, only butting in  if needed or asked ( but let me know in good time please)
