Just some mundane madness

About Me

cathyblurMy mother always used to say to me, “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” So I won’t.  I’ll write it down. Sarcasm and irreverence are my best friends, so if you are conservative, stuffy and humorless, go away.  If you wonder why anyone is presumptuous enough to think people will want to read the ramblings of some self-absorbed blogger, go away.

My daughter sometimes rolls her eyes in embarrassment when we are out in public because I tend to stare at people.  I am fascinated by why people act, walk, talk, and think the way they do. I admit it. I am a relentless and zesty stalker of the mundane. And, as the famous anthropologist, Margaret Mead, said years ago, “There is no more creative force in the world than a menopausal woman with zest.”

“Never do what’s expected, make yourself noticeably different as possible, and have a lot more fun than you’re supposed to.” ~ Ken Schmidt, Former Director of Communications, Harley Davidson Motor Company

I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined

I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you

Open up the dirty window

Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance

So close you can almost taste it

Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten

– Natasha Bedingfield
