Day of Rest

No matter who sings it, this is one of my favorite happy/sad songs, (there are many covers of it that I love as much as the original, this being one of my favorites). The way Toto offers Dorothy/Judy his paw in this video, saying “pet me,” just melts me. My Dexter does the same thing–in fact this particular Toto looks like a mini Dexter.

Sometimes I feel like Dorothy, in such a hurry to get somewhere else, only to discover after a long journey that what my heart longed for was always “right here.”

No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself. ~Virginia Woolf

    Your VW quote stopped me in my tracks. What?! No need to sparkle! I spent a whole year working with the word “sparkle” trying to see it, find it, beat it in to my being….Ha! only to read “no need to be anybody but oneself” and apparently with or without sparkle is enough. Pondering…..


I'd love to hear what you think, kind and gentle reader.
