This was an interesting week. Neither good nor bad.. it just was. For some reason I met a few people this week who have experienced great trauma in their life. Sadness. I found it a little bit difficult to deal with, but thier approach to their situations has been to get on with it...to laugh, and to keep going. It's not easy to see or know of someones elses' suffering, and not be affected by it in some way.
I'm learning something.. I'm not even sure I know what it is.. but it's something.
I just sit, listen.
Sometimes I look at people as they're talking to me.. I may imagine them as a child..carefree, with the whole world ahead. I think of the sadness they try and hide.. or sometimes reveal. Each time, I can vaguely see a moment when they think of something or someone that makes them smile. I see it in thier eyes..perhaps a moment.. a memory.
Sometimes they trigger my own memory.. a moment.. perhaps I smile.. perhaps it's a sad memory
then out of the blue.. when I least expect it..they say something that makes me laugh out loud..
We laugh when we should cry.. could cry.. I guess that's why it's funny. It's out of place.
This week I was reminded to make the most of what I have.. appreciate those around me more.. people in my life.. the people I meet even fleetingly who leave me with something to ponder on, perhaps without even knowing
To moan less (I moan alot :))
Last week Duffys name came up in a conversation. this is my favourite Duffy song.
Right now I feel okay
Time to unwind now..
