‘I never could get the hang of Thursdays.’
I have to admit I often feel the same way about the day dedicated to the Norse God of Thunder. Of course, Arthur Dent was going through a few life-changing events when he uttered those words. We could get all philosophical and discuss that every moment of existence is life-changing but perhaps I’ll leave that to another post.
My life continues to change and it seems every day brings some new challenge or milestone. I am still unsure where I am heading and what I will be doing. However, this has helped me to feel a lot more content with what I have and where I am.
Although not necessarily a Thursday, this day was quite an adventure for St Francis of Assisi who died today 787 years ago, on 3rd October 1226. His devotion to the simple life and poverty, along with many of the other monastic orders, is quite inspiring. It is such a pity that, as with many organisations, adherence to their rules waned with time.
Poetry and creativity
Today is also, so I’m informed, National Poetry Day. In honour I wrote my own little piece and have posted it on my creative journal.
My time has been very creative recently, spending time on a creative challenge to write, record and share a collection of songs written on the ukulele. The challenge hasn’t been a complete success as I missed my deadline, but I am very happy with what I have so far. And I will be sharing what I have done soon.
Thursdays: perhaps not so bad
Despite being awake before 5 am and unable to get to sleep for a while. Despite the rain pouring outside. Despite not knowing the road I want to travel. Things are good. I am content.
