Well, this title is from the David Bowie song “Changes” which has been rolling around in my head for a while. It seems that I’m in one of those stages of life where a lot is changing, whether I want it to or not. Many of the changes, like spring springing, are good ones. I’m happy to be in a new decade of life and hope I get a bunch more. I’m happy that my girls are growing into amazing young women. I’m happy that my husband and I get date nights, and we only have to worry about the dog.
Some people are big fans of change. I have a friend who loves change so much, she sleeps different ways in her bed just to get another view. This is what I’d like to be able to do in the face of change…
“Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” Lao Tzu
But instead of channeling ancient wisdom, I’m more of a Garth from the movie “Wayne’s World.” (Typical that I would feel like a low budget comedy.)
I know, I know! I shouldn’t fear change. I should embrace it, celebrate it, get all Zen with it. And I will. Eventually. But for right now, I’m going to enjoy the change of winter to spring but drag my feet a little bit about everything else.
(If you’re interested in making a change in your writing life, I’ve got some classes coming up at Flathead Valley Community College and that won’t change 🙂
