Summer 2011 Manifesto

Well......Spring didn't go exactly as I had planned.  I'm not sure I have any expectations that summer will, either.  *sigh* 

So, I think I'm going to go nice and simple here.  I hope having this posted in front of me will help keep me focused.  Odd that I've come to a point where I have to focus on having fun.  *another sigh*  So, without further ado, here's to my summer - with a little commentary by Winnie-the-Pooh.

I will get sunshine
and go barefoot on the grass.
“Always watch where you are going. Otherwise, you may step on a piece of the Forest that was left out by mistake.”

I will “just do the next thing”
without anxiety.
“Rivers know this: there is no hurry.
We shall get there some day.”

I will take each day slowly --
no matter how fast the season scurries.
“Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear,
and not bothering.”

I will have fun.
“When late morning rolls around and you're feeling a bit out of sorts, don't worry; you're probably
just a little eleven o'clockish.”

  1. Really like this! I am determined, I've made up my mind kind of attitude. Sometimes we need to do that! Yes, I will too.....

  2. Lovely to meet you Lady Dorothy. Your Blog is inspirational and refreshing to the soul. I am an Ozzie from across the Pacific and also a faith filled believer. I wonder if you would be interested in sharing on Spiritual Sundays? and link up with other like minded Christians? If so, then the Widget is down a bit on my Side Bar.Many Blessings for your week.
