So it's a very simple question...do you have a simple answer? What makes you tick? What gives you the warm and fuzzies and what makes you go aaaaaaaahhh? What makes you want to get up in the morning? And what exactly does it take...to make your little old heart go pitter pat?
Are you a hopeless romantic that sees sunshine always and a rainbow that really isn't there after every single little shuffle? I'm kind of like that and I have absolutely NO CLUE....WHY! I've said before that Kim used to always tell me that I have sunshine coming out of every crevice of my body and she is SICK of it....hahaha But now the love bug has 'finally' bitten HER...and guess who sounds like she's just been given the deed to Disney World every time I talk to her on the phone....hahahahaha
I guess I could be out working and cut off a leg at the knee and yell...."BILLYYYYYY!!!!!...I"VE CUT OFF MY LEG AT THE KNEE...COME QUICK!!!!!!!!!!!" And he'd come running and he'd be so hysterical and fizzing around to get me in the truck to head for the hospital and then I'd get a grip and say "Oh hey...ok hang on...I just realized I have 'another leg'...calm down and get me a big bandage and some crutches"
If you were given a free pass to do anything today...anywhere. What would you want to do? I'd be so frazzled and my head would be spinning until I couldn't tell you my last NAME...much less...pick a good place to go :-) But I wouldn't be naming things like the malls in Nashville or the Mall Of America...or a big swanky restaurant....I'd be saying things to Billy like "Do you think we could go hike Fern Cliff?" or "Could we go get some fishing license and go to that creek down in the Unionville bottoms where we used to take the kids and fish and roast hot dogs?" OR...what I'd REALLY like to do is get a good team of people together with tons of energy and clear that tractor path in the woods that old Mr Grothman had over there before the ice storms....GADS how I LOVED hiking that path....but it would take 15 people and a team of mules to clear it after those 2 ice storms..for goodness sakes.
Do you ever wonder...just what makes a person into...what they become as adults? Like....some people like fancy pants/high and mighty stuff...fancy clothes...big cars...a home that looks like a fancy vacation resort and then others like me...like things that I call a little more on the 'real side'. A little cabin in the woods, roasting marshmallows in a bon fire or cozy fireplace in the living room..a quaint mom and pop diner that has the world's best fried chicken...just being home and foo fooing around the house and then sitting down to everything all neat and tidy in the evening with my little lights on here and there throughout the house and watching the best "Person Of Interest" there ever was :-)
Oh well...I guess we can't solve ALL the world's problems at Bird's Eye View...I'm going to close with 2 or 3 quotes that I just LOVE and I need to make it short today...because I'm SWAMPED...company coming...an errand to run...just tons to do....so think on these words as you go about your day...and we'll meet back here tomorrow and see what we have come up with.......and here we go.....
"Tis a gift to be simple...'tis a gift to be free..'tis a gift to come down..where we ought to be. And when we find ourselves in the place that's just right...twill be in the valley of love and delight"
In Round Knob Canyon...we're livin' a simple life...we were raised down to earth..we're keeper of lost arts and seeker of old things...we LOVE walking dusty lanes and we LOVE LOVE LOVE our life to the fullest....I hope you can say the same thing about YOUR life....and if you can't..just remember..."Life is what you make OF IT...it always has BEEN..and it always will BE....
I want to set hearts yearning for innocent pleasures and simpler times....how am I doin'?
Peace and love from the canyon...I love you all gobs and thanks so SO much...for stopping by...This has been a bird's eye view of the katydid and until next time...you are loved
