{April 24, 2012}   I Haven’t An Eye-Catching Title

I ran around and did a million things yesterday and today. I was a little overwhelmed, but managed to do what I needed to get done. So why do I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything? I’m wound tight tonight. I hope I’m able to find some sleep soon. I feel like I’m going a little out of my head, like someone needs to catch me and ground me before I take to full flight.

One bright part of my day today was going to my brother’s house. He had our niece (my sister’s daughter), who is only five years old. She was rocking out on his professional drum set. I was floored. She’s an amazing kid. Unfortunately, now that my brother has her interested in the drums, she doesn’t really want to continue learning the piano. Whatever makes her happy, though. Like I said, she’s an amazing kid. And my brother is pretty amazing for doing so much for her- teaching her to play drums, paying for dance classes, taking her to see the firetruck he drives… I wish I had an Uncle like him when I was her age.

A friend bought me a coffee mug the other day and I thought I would share it with you all. In case you can’t see it clearly, it reads: “live with intention. walk to the edge. listen hard. practice wellness. play with abandon. laugh. choose with no regret. continue to learn. appreciate your friends. do what you love. live as if this is all there is. ~Mary Anne Radmacher”
